“Powerful, gripping, unflinchingly honest and sensuously gorgeous writing.”
-- Kristan Higgins, New York Times Bestselling Author
Power. Passion. Betrayal.
Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King's Men Duet.
Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.
In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I'm determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.

Excerpt“What do you want?” The look he pours over me is hot oil, burning me even through serviceable layers of cotton. His heated perusal caresses my face, sluices over my breasts and hips, and then pools at my feet. “Oh, that you won’t ever get again,” I say, my voice a soft, certain promise. “I don’t screw liars. I’m particular that way.” “Never say never,” he drawls, tilting up my chin with his finger. “Nev–” He crushes the word between our mouths. It falls apart in the scorching, sweet tangle of lips and teeth. With one hand, he digs his fingers into my hair. The other splays across my lower back, his grip on me almost convulsive, urging me up and closer. I’m in stasis. I’m completely startled by the kiss, unable to respond. I send a desperate message to my brain. Move. Pull back. Push him away. But the urgent glide of his hand down my spine to cup my ass melts my thoughts to liquid and they swim in my head. I can’t pull back, and all hope of resistance dissolves when he presses his thumb to my chin, prying me open. He stalks my tongue, hunts down a response, licking and sucking and groaning and growling. His hands tighten on me until I strain up to seek him, yanking his hair, pulling him even closer. “Dammit, Nix,” he mutters between kisses. His hand wanders down my neck and across my shoulder, and cups my breast, twisting the nipple through flimsy barriers of cotton and lace. He shoves up my skirt, pulling my legs wider, and pushes my panties aside, his fingers invading me. My body remembers this mad craving that claws out of my bones—that wants out. That wants him. Under his rough touch, my body blooms and my hips rock. “That’s it,” he says, taking my earlobe between his lips. My head falls back and I moan. It’s so damn good. His touch awakens me. His hands, his kisses bring me to life. It feels like I’m taking my first deep breath since we were last together, and it fills my lungs, seeps into my pores. “I missed you,” he says, sucking my lips and kissing the corners, quick, hungry. “I’m sorry. Baby, I—” “Stop talking.” I reach between us to loosen his belt, catching his zipper and dragging it down, dragging him out. “Shut up.”
Prepare yourself for a WILD ride! This is an epic series about the journey of two characters from different backgrounds, who are meant to be together.
Lennix is true to her American Indian ancestry. Her mother taught her right about the culture and appreciation for their customs. Preserving the sacred land and the water supply of the Apache nation is part of that. As she stands up to those who will steal and defile their land, she meets the man that will affect the rest of her life. Her passion for honesty and doing the right thing will clash with the man who has stolen her heart.
To Maxim, standing up for himself against his father is norm. Being part of this influential family does not mean he supports his father's greed and underhanded methods. Standing up for the American Indian community protecting their land from the new pipeland comes naturally as he rushes to save a young woman at the heart of it. Their few hours together will leave an undeniable impact on his life. Little did he know this woman would affect him for the rest of his life.
Intriguing and emotional, this first book of the duet stole my heart. This is not only a love story, it is the story of what activism and being passionate for a cause bigger than the needs of two people. The story is easy to read and will bewitch you. Do not miss this duet!
I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Thanks to the author for sharing a copy with me.
