With Her Kiss by Cerise DeLand
Book three in the Swords of Passion series

Defying his king, Geoffrey St. Claire invades a dungeon to save the woman he loves from cruel death. This time, he vows, he will save her and make her love him—or die trying.

Countess Katherine Harleigh knew her refusal to become King John’s lover courted his punishment. But she never thought he’d try to starve her. Cast into a dungeon—widowed, alone and disgraced—Kat fears no one can save her. Not even the one knight who always promised to love and protect her.

Geoffrey St. Claire serves his Sire as loyally as a sane man can. But when John imprisons the one woman Geoff has always adored, he risks his lands and his life to ride to her rescue. Yet, he knows she will never welcome his aid. She hates him too much for deserting her years ago. But he will not leave her this time.

Now, Geoff plans to save her from death and despair, nurse her back to health and then persuade her to love him as wholly as she once did. Seduction in her bath, her bed, her chamber is his only method and he prays he can restore her love for him before John appears with an army to take her from him once more…this time, forever.

With Her Kiss is the final book in the Swords Of Passion Series by Cerise DeLand. I have to say that I absolutely loved this one.

I was so captivated by this story that I hung on every word of this emotional story. Here was a love story that was rich in emotion and history, for Kat and Geoffrey had loved and been torn apart in the past. Years later, Kat has refused a greedy king’s lust for money, land, and her own body. In retaliation King John had her imprisoned, tortured and starved. This story snagged my attention, and my heart, with Kat’s desperate situation, and Geoffrey risking everything to defy the tyrannical King John and rescue his lost love. So much turmoil was heaped upon these two star crossed lovers in this story. It was truly heart wrenching reading in some parts. Now, as much as my heart broke for Kat, this was also an incredibly sensual story. The intimate scenes were heated with scorching passion, and of all things, raunchy sexual toys.

Honestly, for a short story, this plot was put together perfectly. The author slowly unraveled the intricacies of Geoffrey and Kat’s relationship. It was revealed that their bond had never been broken. They were tied together in more ways than one. I was absolutely delighted as each new secret was revealed.

At heart this was a very romantic story about two people who had to defy a king to be together. For me that is the best kind of romance, and when it all came together for them in the end, I rejoiced for these fictional characters. I really can’t say enough good things about Cerise DeLand’s writing style and the Swords Of Passion Series …. just that With Her Kiss has to be my favorite. I am happy to recommend this book !
