Some men are too bad to be true . . .

Is he really a Viking with a vampire’s bite? An angel with the body of a thunder god? A lone wolf with love on his mind? Alexandra Kelly, his prey, thinks Vikar Sigurdsson is either flat-out crazy or he’s trying to maneuver her into his bed—which is hardly where a professional reporter should conduct an interview, tempting as that prospect might be.

And some men are too good to be true . . .

Until Vikar does something a teensy bit unexpected, and Alex begins to wonder whether her mystery man could really be everything he says he is: a Viking Vampire Angel on a thousand-year-long mission with his pack of sinful brothers—and a man who’s finally found the woman of his dreams. By then, Vikar is already wrapping his chiseled arms around Alex’s body . . . and sinking his wicked fangs right into her neck. If this is sin, why does it feel so good?

I did not finish this book. In lieu of writing a complete book review I’m going to post my GoodReads updates so you know what I thought and why I chose to not continue reading Kiss of Pride. This is unusual because I normally enjoy Sandra Hill’s books. Without further ado I give you my reading thoughts:

Page 37: Not loving it so far. I keep rolling my eyes and sighing. I think it’ll get better, but the irreverence and set up for the story is silly. I especially didn’t like it when I read “Without words, Michael could see down below to what had so offended his Lord. “Tsk, tsk!” was the best he could come up with.” That’s all my kick ass archangel Michael can come up with? I think my prob. is that it (the story) came off as a soft fairy tale.

Page 37: I can’t do it. This book is irritating the crap out of me. DNF
