Power. Passion. Betrayal.
Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King's Men Duet.
Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.
In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I'm determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.
And neither will I.

It’s no secret that Kennedy Ryan is one of my all time favorites. She has the ability to pull me right into a story and keep me sucked in up until the very last page. Her writing is astounding. And the way she moves me while telling a story so relevant but yet so heart warming is one of my favorite things about her story telling. And let’s not forget the steam... because Maxim and Lennix have a lot of it. 

The Kingmaker is such a gorgeous story. So relevant with issues we are facing in today’s society but also keeping you on your toes with the romance and angst. It’s the perfect blend. Ryan is a master at it. Lennix is part of the Yavapai-Apache Nation and she is proud of her colors. She isn’t afraid to shout their rights and work hard to have their voices heard. 


“Some people leave an impression. Lennix Moon Hunter has left more than an impression. She’s left her mark on me. And it’s shaped like a star.”

Lennix is a warrior and she’s ready for battle. She knew she always wanted to do something to help people’s voices be heard, while never losing her roots but the last thing she expects is to meet a man at one of her protests. 

“The harder I have to work for something, the harder I take it.” 

Maxim is no quiet bird. He knows what he wants in life and plans to work hard for it. No matter how much he disappoints his father. Maxim is out to save the world. It’s all he wants to do. And he is determined to succeed. But the last thing he expects is a woman to swoop in and take his every thought. He’s not a dating kind of man. But one encounter with many kept secrets leads to more lying and heartbreak over the years. Years lost and moments stolen. But can they recover from the lies and find love and peace in each other? 

Such a gorgeous story. One that kept me on my toes. And I can’t wait to finish Maxim’s and Lennix’s story in The Rebel King.

“What do you want?” The look he pours over me is hot oil, burning me even through serviceable layers of cotton. His heated perusal caresses my face, sluices over my breasts and hips, and then pools at my feet. “Oh, that you won’t ever get again,” I say, my voice a soft, certain promise. “I don’t screw liars. I’m particular that way.” “Never say never,” he drawls, tilting up my chin with his finger. “Nev–” He crushes the word between our mouths. It falls apart in the scorching, sweet tangle of lips and teeth. With one hand, he digs his fingers into my hair. The other splays across my lower back, his grip on me almost convulsive, urging me up and closer. I’m in stasis. I’m completely startled by the kiss, unable to respond. I send a desperate message to my brain. Move. Pull back. Push him away. But the urgent glide of his hand down my spine to cup my ass melts my thoughts to liquid and they swim in my head. I can’t pull back, and all hope of resistance dissolves when he presses his thumb to my chin, prying me open. He stalks my tongue, hunts down a response, licking and sucking and groaning and growling. His hands tighten on me until I strain up to seek him, yanking his hair, pulling him even closer. “Dammit, Nix,” he mutters between kisses. His hand wanders down my neck and across my shoulder, and cups my breast, twisting the nipple through flimsy barriers of cotton and lace. He shoves up my skirt, pulling my legs wider, and pushes my panties aside, his fingers invading me. My body remembers this mad craving that claws out of my bones—that wants out. That wants him. Under his rough touch, my body blooms and my hips rock. “That’s it,” he says, taking my earlobe between his lips. My head falls back and I moan. It’s so damn good. His touch awakens me. His hands, his kisses bring me to life. It feels like I’m taking my first deep breath since we were last together, and it fills my lungs, seeps into my pores. “I missed you,” he says, sucking my lips and kissing the corners, quick, hungry. “I’m sorry. Baby, I—” “Stop talking.” I reach between us to loosen his belt, catching his zipper and dragging it down, dragging him out. “Shut up.”
