The sting of the Scorpion
Intrigue and politics
In the Serpent I loved Kevin Hage and felt so sorry for him when he lost his unrequited love, Penelope de Wolfe to the Serpent. I was so excited to read his story and I was not disappointed. Kathryn Le Veque delivered a roller coaster ride with its amazing story. The story picks up 6 years after the Serpent in the foreign land where Kevin Hage has earned quit the reputation as lethal and deadly assassin which earned the nickname “Scorpion”. Kevin decides to return home to England with his comrades, Thomas de Wolfe and Addonis de Norville. On his way home he’s asked to presents himself before Edward, King of England. The King is fascinated with the Scorpion’s reputation as skilled assassin in a foreign land. King Edward has plans for Kevin and places him in the service of the Duke and Duchess of Dorset. Our heroine is the Duchess Annavieve who has spent her entire life in a convent because she is a descendent her father was of Welsh royal blood and her mother was from the great Marshal family. Through all the intrigue and politics with so many unforeseen twist and turns in this book. The romance starts off rocky for both of them, the quite girl from the convent and the warrior who has vowed to never give his heart again to another woman. Kevin Hage is a magnificent hero who deserved to find his happily ever after with the lovely Annavieve de Ferrers. I thoroughly enjoyed the amazing ride this story took me on. A great read I know you will truly enjoy!!!
Brad Wills's always excels at bringing the characters to life and goes beyond bring the story to life!!! Love this story and his narration!!!
