From beloved, RITA-award-winning author Kennedy Ryan comes the first in her gripping All the King's Men duology.
In a world of haves and have-nots, Maxim Cade’s family and their oil empire have it all…and he wants nothing to do with it. At odds with his mogul father, he’s determined to build his own empire, even if it means traveling far from home, painted as the black sheep.
Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of Maxim’s rules. At a protest for the oil pipeline that threatens to mar her ancestral land forever, they meet in a flurry of stars and sparks, and that one moment changes everything. But Maxim’s family is the one stealing from hers, and his father is the man she hates most. He has to lie in order to have her once, and despite the truth, he’ll do anything to keep her.
Even though Lennix tries to hate Maxim, too, their hearts are pointed in the same direction. The inexorable pull between them, across miles and years, will not be denied.
And neither will Maxim.
Amazing love story
I loved learning about Native cultures. The heat was fantastic and the story was beautiful.
Wow! Just WOW! This story is amazing! This is a powerful, angsty romance, that was empowering, suspenseful, with a story that was inspiring and truly unique that has such fabulous crafted characters that are completely unforgettable.
Lennox Moon Hunter is a unique, gorgeous woman, inside and out. She is witty, intelligent, kind, generous loving, fierce, passionate, a thoughtful and caring daughter, a warrior, an activist and she fights for everything she believes in with her whole heart and soul.
She is truly an amazing woman, she is inspirational and I definitely cannot say enough great things about her.
Maxim Kingsman Cade is unbelievable, a man who chooses to fight for what he believes is right. He is brilliant, charming, determined, and if he wants something he doesn’t stop until he gets it…and he wants her. I swooned so very hard for Maxim!
“we’re lost in a tangle of I am his and he is mine, insatiable, inseparable. Perfect together.”
Lennox and Maxim are…chemistry and passion. They have an instant connection…an attraction that goes soul deep. They come from different backgrounds but they both have the same burning desire to change the world. And they are! I loved their banter, their connection, and their passion. Together these two stole a piece of my heart that I will never get back.
The Kingmaker completely blew me away! I knew that this author was talented, but this was a whole new level of brilliance. I was totally mesmerized by this phenomenal story. I need more and I’m waiting on bated breath for The Rebel King and the conclusion to this well written, powerful duet. The best story I have read this year!!
