From New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole comes this spellbinding story of a demon king trapped by an enchantress for her wanton purposes - and the scorching aftermath that follows when he turns the tables and claims her as his captive.
Sabine, Sorceress of Illusions: The evil beauty who surrenders her body, but not her heart.
Rydstrom Woede: The ruthless warrior who vows to keep her at all costs.
They were never supposed to want each other this much....
With each smoldering encounter, their shared hunger only increases. If they can defeat the sinister enemy that stands between them, will Sabine make the ultimate sacrifice for her demon? Or will the proud king lay down his crown and arms to save his sorceress?

Love to read!
Kresley Cole never fails in writing an engaging tail that you don't want to put down. I love that many of her female characters very strong both physically and mentally. Sabian is definitely one of those characters. At first I didn't think I was going to like her, but as the layers peeled away I started to really enjoy her character. Rydstrom is definitely hot and domineering, but still a caring tough guy. I really liked their chemistry and tension. I may listen to this one again!
I love, love, love Robert Petkoff's narrations of the IAD series. Love the accents, the life he puts into the character, etc. The Kiss of the Demon king story is a continuation of Dark Desires After Dusk which follows Cadeon's brother Rydstrom Woede and Sabine (love the names by the way). If you haven't listened to the Dark Desires After Dusk first, then you'll be lost with this book. Sabine's character puts herself so high on a pedestal, it's hilarious to listen to. Love the story about demons and sorceri, but I can't wait to get to the other books back to the Valkyries and Vampires. Keep them coming KC and RP! Love this series!
I am in love with pararomance and am always trying to find new series with a great story and sizzling hot spots!
Hmmm, let's see... Kresley Cole's writing is amazing, the characters are so awesome, and Robert Petkoff is wonderful... so all these things make listening to this series to incredible. I am actually listening to each a second time. The fact that there is this whole other world she has created, with all these awesome characters that play a role in each book, and the passion between them, makes me want to also buy these books so I can sit and read them in one sitting! Of course I will hear Robert's voice the whole time, lol.
Sabine is awesome, I love how ruthless and badass she is, yet she is a bit vulnerable with being afraid of water and of course the Reckoners.
EVERYTHING. I enjoy him so much, and compare him to other performers. The only other one that compares is Tavia Gilbert.
When Sabine helps with the Basalisk.
I will continue to listen to this series and they are well worth the credit. I just wish The Warlord Wants Forever was redone with Robert's voice!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I'm just going to make this simple. If your a paranormal fan then you need this one. Of course you've heard the previous books in this series so continue on this fabulous journey! YUM!!!
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Awesome series so much fun, keep you laughing and very hot. All the books in the series can stand alone, worth every cent won't give any of the story away just read the or listen to the preview...and Robert is a fabulous narrator.

The arch nemesis match-up was a cool idea, and I liked that Kresley Cole jumped straight away into Rydstrom’s story after Cadeon’s because Woede’s about-face towards the end of book 6 left me dying to know the cause. This installment was probably one of the hottest thus far, but that actually worked against KISS OF A DEMON KING; the couple felt as though they were an island unto themselves instead of part of the Lore, and the quest for the crown was downgraded to a minor concern. This novel was second to last for me in the IMMORTALS AFTER DARK series.
I don’t do well with plots that revolve around one setting, and granted this tale had more than that; however the bulk of the events unfolded either in Sabine’s dungeon, or Rydstrom’s demon camp, and it grew stale after a while. And, not just because of the limited scope, but also due to the monotony of the action. Sex is inherently redundant as is torture—cut, thrust, repeat—so after a couple of chapters of this, déjà vu set in. It also isolated the characters from the rest of the IAD universe, and as a result this audio felt disconnected from the whole.
Villains can be as captivating as protagonists, so Sabine’s evilness wasn’t the trait that turned me off from her plight. I liked that she stayed true to her course, and that finding love didn’t change her basic nature. Rothkalina never denied that she was a liar, a thief, and a master manipulator, but when the gloves came off there was nothing extra beneath the surface. Her sole redeeming quality was her devotion to her sister, Lanthe, otherwise there was absolutely no depth to her personage. She was just an empty shell of discontent.
I’ve been admiring Rydstrom from afar for several installments now, and was looking forward to seeing the Demon King in all of his raging glory. Imagine my disappointment when he spent the majority of this audiobook chained to a bed! He was all bark, and no bite; the only place that his furor came through was in Robert Petkoff’s narration which hasn’t wavered in its awesomeness since IAD #1. This was the second so-so volume that was much improved by his performance, and I’m grateful for his steadfastness at times like this when Cole’s writing slips.
KISS OF A DEMON KING will please BDSM listeners, but frustrate substance seekers. ~3.5 Stars
The narrator is awesome! Kresley Cole does not disappoint! So glad I found this series! As someone else had said Kresley Cole is an automatic purchase. You know it will be good.
