By Shona Husk. The Goblin Prince defeated the dreaded Shadowlands, but winning the love of a woman may be his ultimate undoing. He is like a prince in a fairy tale: tall, outrageously handsome, and way too dark for her own good. Amanda has been hurt before, though. And with her daughter's illness, the last thing she needs right now is a man. But the power of Dai King is hard to resist.
And when he threads his hands through her hair and pulls her in for a kiss, there is no denying it feels achingly right. After being trapped in the Shadowlands for centuries with the goblin horde a constant threat, Dai revels in his newfound freedom back in the human realm. But even with the centuries of magic he's accumulated, he still doesn't know how to heal Amanda's daughter—and it breaks his heart. Yet for the woman he loves, he'd risk anything Upload Sign In Join.

He may be human again but life is not easy. Oh Dai, I wanted his story already in book 1 and here I got it. He is all things I want my hero to be, that's right, tortured and hurting. He feels that he can't let go of his horrid past and all the things done to him. He is suffering and he is just the kind of man you want to hug and tell that everything will be ok. Because he is also loyal, kind and good with kids.
He is not that alpha when I think about it, he always shadowed his brother. He is the magician, the scholar, the beta, and I really liked that. The story is a lot about he trying to come to terms with things, being human, the magic he can now use, and falling for a woman, Amanda. The lovestory is not rushed at all, another thing I liked as you do not need to jump in bed at once. Like I said, he has suffered and Amanda is a widow.
They dance around each other for a while and think about if they want to pursue this. Yes, things should take time. We also meet the hero of book 3 briefly in this book and I do want his story too, especially if the book is as good as this one was. At times I could not put it down because I felt for Dai and there are things going on too, that I cannot mention.
All making it exciting at times. Conclusion: Who knew a former Goblin could be a hottie?! I liked the book and the series should keep on getting better and better. Opening Sentence: There were no decorations in the church, no family or friends filling the pews. Dai brought with him strong magical powers that allow him to see the ebb and flow of life. He can also see how people are connected to one another. He needs to learn how to control his magic, unburden himself from his brother Roan and live in the modern world.
Amanda is also attracted to Dai when she sees him but she feels she is betraying her dead husband by what she feels for Dai. Amanda is devoted to her daughter, Brigit, who is afflicted with a serious form of asthma. Amanda is forced to move in with Roan and Eliza when a teenager she is counseling breaks into her home and attacks her. This allows her and Dai to have a little more interaction. The world continues to expand in Kiss of the Goblin Prince.
Dai discovers that a few characters are more than they seem in spirit. A brother is found and new supernatural creatures are introduced. The Birch Bank is so much more than it seems. I was engrossed in the relationship between Amanda and Dai. They have a slow courtship trying to learn about each other and learning to break away from their pasts so they can possibly have a relationship together.
The little bits at a time that they give in to each other, the sparks fly. Dai is nothing like his brother Roan. It may not be what his brother wants for him but he is uncomfortable about the relationship between Roan and Eliza and he wants to get away. Dai comes to several realizations about how the past and present have come together and need to be fixed. Dai is damaged in heart, body and soul and he slowly learns to heal himself.
Amanda has kind of been dealt a raw hand at life. Once she realizes that she needs to live for the moment and not worry about how much actions can hurt her, she really opens up. I wanted to know what was going to happen to him next.
Notable Scene:Dai put his hands flat on the table. The skin on his palms began to heat. He forced cold through his hands as if he could will the wood to cool. The booksss you collected are best locked away. There is information I need. Vexion dropped his gaze to the wood and then glanced back at Dai. You know that. The Summons1. The Goblin King2. Kiss of the Goblin Prince3.
Review: Kiss of the Goblin Prince by Shona Husk
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Trapped for centuries in the bleak Shadowlands, Dai clings to his humanity with a thirst for knowledge. But now he's free of the goblin curse, and some would say he knows too much-- he can make nature bend to his will, influence the minds of others, and command magic. Yet love eludes him. Then he meets Amanda, a single mother with a sick daughter whom he feels compelled to protect. But could she possibly place her trust in the kiss of a goblin prince?

Posted May 10, by Gikany-Una in 3. I liked this one, but also felt like we needed more time with the HEA. We wait the whole book for these two to get together. Even a few more pages of them together at the end would have made a big difference for me. Toggle navigation. Enter a searach query.
