Vampire bounty hunter Morgan Bailey wants three things for her birthday: cupcakes, a little action from her sexy new boyfriend, and a good night’s sleep. After the year she’s had, is a quiet celebration really so much to ask?
Apparently…yes. It turns out a psychotic sidhe - a subspecies of fae - is running amok in Portland, and it’s up to Morgan to take him down. There’s just one problem: this fairy is as powerful as he is psychotic. And considering the supernatural nut jobs Morgan has dealt with, that’s saying something.
Morgan ends up forming an uneasy alliance with the Fairy Queen and embarks upon her most outrageous adventure yet to take out the renegade sidhe. If she fails though, and the sidhe achieves his endgame, it will trigger devastation unlike anyone - or anything, human or otherwise - has ever seen.

She really brings the characters to life.
The weakest part of the book is the romance. There was such great potential for the love triangle. But t.he dragon is so perfect - boring I can't remember his name. Jake is the worlds worst bodyguard. Before they met he could psychically intuit when she was in trouble. After they met...not so much. Supposedly he couldn't be with her because he needs to be clear headed to guard her...but after they slept together a couple of times he not only couldn't sense when she was in trouble...but was never around her and never answered her phone call. I started wondering if after he got what he wanted he just wanted to be left alone so he could teach 5th graders piano.
Up until the end this was so far the best of the series. There was lots of action, adventure and a new boyfriend. The ending was abrupt and sad and hopefully the next book has some miracles in it, otherwise I'm not sure I'll continue with the series.
Kissed by Smoke was well written with lots of original imagination, but an abrupt ending full of sadness was unexpected.
No. The first two books in the series held promise, but this one seemed to have a patchwork plot. It is possible the author was using this book as a bridge to extend the series. However, with such a disappointing story, I will not be a reader/listener of any future books.
Nothing in this series. The Penton Legacy series was recommended by a friend so I will give that a try. I know the narrator of that series is very good.
Narrator was mediocre.
Disappointment that I spent my time listening to it.
