He was trained as an assassin, but Kit’s no murderer.

Son of a Lindumian noble, Kit has made peace with his fate as soulmate to Sudharain’s Prince Talal. Making peace with his home country is harder. Kit’s father arrives at court, demanding he stand trial for murder. Kit knows the claim is false. But if this plan doesn’t work, what else will Lindumia try in order to destroy him – and Sudharain?

As prince and heir, Talal was raised to always put Sudharain first. But that was before he met his soulmate. Now, he knows he’d burn down the world for the man he loves. He wants Kit’s home country to be an ally, but if they strike against his beloved soulmate he’ll show no mercy.


Book Review

In book three of ‘The Prince’s Soulmate’, which began with ‘Assassin, join our soulmates as they face Lindumian a$$holes (unfortunately, not limited to Kit's father). Much as an intermezzo, the plot is light and geared toward soap opera fun episodes – domestic, political, and as of the Arabian Knights. There is conflict and well-limned dueling. There is reassuring physical intimacy between our heroes, but not to the lessening of the story.


The author provides, almost as an aside, a discussion of slavery and its immorality and the problems in its elimination.


After diversions and much fun, our tale returns to the conflict between Talal’s homeland and Kit’s family, bringing the story sharply to volume four.
