After three years at war, Ennon bears the burden of seeing the High Lord’s vast armies home. Keeping thousands of fiercely independent lions in line isn’t easy. When his soldiers discover a beautiful, royal female hidden beneath an illusion spell, the lure of her inheritance threatens the order of his camp.

The men of her family protected Kisri, until the war stole them away. Tired of defending herself from greedy suitors, she’s in search of her only remaining male relative. Instead she finds Ennon, her cousin’s most dangerous warrior. Perhaps the only man in the kingdom who has no interest in claiming her birthright. Which makes him unique…and tempting.

Delivering Kisri to his High Lord’s side–while keeping his distance–is Ennon’s one and only duty. Yet Kisri’s untutored advances crack his formidable resistance. And she proves to be a dangerously adept student. Especially when their passion wakes a magic beyond their control…

Warning: This story contains a dangerous shapeshifter warlord, a lioness with a sword, innocent passion, sexual awakenings and a happily-ever-after worthy of any fairy tale.

My Thoughts:

Kisri is the 2nd short story in the …And the Beast series (I love the name of that series by the way). I knew before opening this book that I would be in for a treat. I’ve yet to come across a Moira Rogers book I didn’t enjoy (I know, I’m rambling to when it comes to their books *wink*). On a totally shallow note, I’m fascinated by this cover. It’s just so pretty and sensual *happy sigh*
Kisri is the High-Lord’s cousin. She’s a beautiful woman and she has quite a big dowry, which means that most men want her for her fortune. They don’t really care that she’s an intelligent  and independent (and strong) woman. She’s been trying to escape these men for years but now she finds herself in need of protection. Kisri decides to ask her cousin, Malrion,  for protection but on her way to him she meets Malrion’s first warrior Ennon. 
I really enjoyed seeing Kisri and Ennon together. What starts as a simple experiment quickly evolves into something deeper and meaningful. I loved that Kisri thinks he’s strong enough to deserve her. Her sexual education was very hot. I think it’s the main highlight of the book, the smex scenes are hot and erotic (ain’t that the goal? *wink*) and leave you satiated with a big smile on your face. 
This very cute and sensual fairy tale is easy to read. It’s a treat you can gobble up when you’re feeling a bit down . I can’t recommend this series enough, seriously you won’t regret it. Short, sweet, hot, it’s everything you need in 60 pages.

I give Kisri 4 1/2 Bookies

    Sounds good and I do wonder how she manages to wrap up the story in 60 pages

    @Blodeuedd It's their talent! Seriously I nearly never read short stories because they are always lacking but Moira Rogers' shorts/novella always feel complete.
