It is the solstice, hormones are running hot and the smell of pheromones permeate the air. Lust is in the air for demons and the Lash Demons are no exception. Tanner, one of the Watchers has literally caught the scent of a beautiful female Lash Demon and they both know exactly what is going to happen next. Little did Tanner know, he wouldn’t be able to get Saige out of his head.

Saige has troubles, big troubles and she is trapped in a dark plot to trap powerful beings, including some lash Demons

Captive’s Kiss is a Watcher’s Kiss novella by Sharon Kay. It takes place in the Solsti Prophecy and Watcher’s Kiss world. This novella can be read as a stand-a-lone.

Captive’s Kiss starts us off hot and heavy. Oh boy where is my fan? Ms. Kay gives us a great run down of the world, how it works, and that it's the season of lust for most demons, so sex is on the brain. We get action, adventure, and a sweet ro
The Watcher’s Kiss is one of my favourite series although I didn’t sync with her other series I can’t get enough of this series.

Novellas are a hit and miss but because I love this series I just had to read it.

Tanner is a Watcher of the realm and it is the solstice where hormones run high for the demons especially the Lash Demons at a club Tanner smells something tantalising that he has to go after it. It turns out it is a female Lash Demon. Saige is in trouble she has two objectives one to eas
A short novella in the Watcher's Kiss series.

I haven't read all of the books in the series but I didn't feel lost or like I was missing big chunks of the story. A lovely little rainy day read that can be read as a standalone.

This fairly involved novella is an entry to the Watcher's Kiss series by Sharon Kay. However, it is my first book by Ms. Kay and my introduction to this series. As I read along in the beginning, I felt a little lost in the world-building and was clearly introduced to characters who had major roles in the longer novels in the series. However, Ms. Kay must have a sneaky ability to read my mind, because just as I was getting annoyed at not really knowing what realm I was in, or exactly what a Watch ...more

Holy Smokes! I want more of these two. Although this is a novella it definitely felt more like a full length book. There was a good amount of character development and back story considering the length.

When Tanner first crosses paths with the Lash demon Saige, it is during the peak of their mating season. Both are powerless to resist the desire between them, but after one night of passion Tanner can't stop thinking about the alluring woman he met in a dark club.

Sizzling solstice shenanigans lead to rescue of captives…is the headline I might lead with if writing a column for a paper…or perhaps the first three words with the rest underneath. And, that is just what this book delivers!

Tanner, a Watcher, and his team are in Halice, Torth with many others at the time of year when mating urges run high. Tanner gets a whiff of someone he has to find and there was Saige and she was just as eager to scratch an itch as he was. Neither knew that their interaction

Sharon Kay is one of my favorite authors and this novella was a great addition to the Watcher’s Kiss series. Tanner is a watcher and meets Saige during the solstice. He is unable to forget her, but believes she is working with the enemy. However, he soon finds out this is not the case and she is in need of help. This is a great story of a rescue, action and of course romance. Tanner and Saige are great characters and were developed really well for a short story. As with Sharon Kay’s other books, ...more

(This review may contain spoilers).

I was really happy to get the opportunity to read this novella and have the chance to see the world and the characters again... though I particularly liked being able to see another group of Watchers.

I thought it was particularly interesting to see something of the culture of the Lash demons, though I was a bit confused about how everything worked with them going into heat... or that's what it seeme

I love this series! This is a novella length installment so a very quick read with a little action, a little steam and intriguing characters. Saige and Tanner have some really steamy chemistry together! This can be read as a stand alone if you just want to try out this author's writing style and the series.
Don't want to say too much about the plot really as to not ruin the story since it is so short so I'll just say that I've been reading this author's work since her very first release and she

This is the first book by this author and I have to say I would read more books by her. Fast paced, easy read with some hot sex thrown in there.
Tanner is a 300+ year old Lash demon and a Watcher. Saige is a 25 year old Lash demon with special powers. They get together one night at Club Hades and the sparks fly from there. They feel a mutual attraction but chalk it up to the hormones that are running rampant with the demons.

When Sharon Kay does a novella, she does it right. She focuses on one point and gets the reader there with out feeling like the have been rushed and cheated out of something amazing.

Tanner and Saige meet up for a quick romp during their race's fertile period. Neither one of them figure they would see each other again even though there is a felt connection on both sides. Saige has secrets. She is being coerced into using her power in order to lure men into a underground fighting ring, to make mat

Captive's Kiss starts out with a bang. It's a steamy, sexy, "wow" kind of bang. It's pretty awesome.

Although this is #3 in the series (which I didn't realize when I read it, cause I haven't read #2 -- oops), I didn't feel lost or as though I missed anything. It kept my attention from the beginning and didn't let up. It was a one sitting read.

All in all, Captive's Kiss was a quick, steamy, act

Tanner is a watcher and it just happens to be solstice tinge and for those who have read books by Sharon Kay before solstice time means lots and lots of hot sex!

Saige is in a bad place looking for a way out and when she finds Tanner she knows she can trust him to help.

The story is quick and steamy and we're allowed to get in the both of their heads as they work to help each other and also figure out their connection. If anything I wish the story would have been longer because I enjoyed it so mu

I just love this series!! While this is shorter than normal we still see plenty of Watcher ass kicking and some steamy moments between our leads Tanner and Saige. Despite the shortness of the story it flowed quickly and provided us all with plot and not just sex and no story. If you haven't read any of the Watcher series it's not necessary to enjoy this but I highly recommend it.

It was supposed to be a one night hook up with Saige to ease the mating urge, Tanner is a lash demon and during Solstice is their fertile period. He can’t get her out of his mind and wants to find out more about her, what he learns isn’t good. He poses as one of her kidnapped victims who will be forced to fight to the death, will he be able to save them in time? Great paranormal read. Loved the characters, the story held my interest from beginning to end.

I could almost copy and paste any of my other reviews for Sharon Kay books. I really enjoy them, I love the characters, I love the worlds she builds, all of it. The best part is that she keeps each story interesting and different and it never feels boring or repetitive. This is the 3rd installment in the Watchers Kiss series but it's a novellas. Although it was short, there was enough story to make it FEEL like a regular novel.

Captive’s Kiss by Sharon Kay

During the solstice on Torth, hormones are running rampant and fertility is an all-time high. Demons, fae, nymphs and other creatures of Torth are all affected; filled with lust and searching for that warm body to scratch that itch. To many creatures it’s just that, a warm body to scratch that itch. That’s all Tanner was looking for, to get relief from the solstice itch. What he didn’t expect was running into his mate in the midst of lust chaos at the club looking fo
Tamye Whitener
This engrossing story begins towards the end of a sultry day. Not an ordinary day, but the summer solstice, where half the creatures of Torth were in their fertile period, and the need to reproduce rode them hard. The scent of sex literally curled through the air of downtown Halice. The Watchers (The protectors of Torth, and consisting mainly of Lash Demons), were off duty, and had only one thing on their minds. Sex!

This is a Watcher’s Kiss novella and was a really great read! I’m a huge fan of paranormal romance and have read quite a lot in this genre. I tend to pass on reading novellas since I feel as if they’re ending right when I’m getting into the story, but that’s not the case for me with this one. I was surprised by the amount of story that’s packed into this short little gem! I loved everything about this one and particularly enjoyed all of the paranormal creatures included here.

Captive’s Kiss was my first book by Sharon Kay and if she writes more paranormal romance like she wrote this book I will be definitely reading them all.

Captive’s Kiss was a fast pace romance about Saige who is being coerced into leading other paranormal beings to their death. She thought there was no chance of living another way, until one night she meets Tanner.

Tanner and his other warrior brothers was on the town for one purpose and that is take care of the mating urge that strikes his people.

I’m an avid paranormal reader and I have to say I loved this short story. The writing was good, the characters had chemistry, and just plain loved this story. Nothing brings two strangers together like a heat but when it’s over and the feeling is still there and hotter than ever then that’s makes for a hell of a good story. Tanner and Saige story is pretty epic they meet in unusual situation or their usual and from there the spark was lit on their romance but Saige has a secret and if she tells ...more

Another great story. I couldn't put it down. It was a quick read but still full of action. Lash demon males are disappearing and the Watchers are sent to investigate. Tanner discovers his hook up from the summer solstice is in danger and he has this unexplainable urge to help her. I love how the connection between Tanner and Saige was nudging at both of them and they didn't fight it. They let the urges and desire grow. ...more

After finishing the fourth Solsti novel, I was so excited that Mrs. Kay decided to write more about the lash demons and others at Demon Headquarters! I love Mrs. Kay's writing so much. Every book is the perfect blend of sex, action, drama and most importantly, emotion. They all connect seamlessly! My one and only complaint about this series is, I wish they were longer, I never want them to end! ...more
