Publisher's Summary

He didn't ask permission. He just made me his.

I didn't think I needed Dimitri Kristoff's protection, but it wasn't up to me. With a kingpin from a rival family coming after me, he took charge, took off his belt, and then took what he wanted.

He knows I'm not used to doing as I'm told. He just doesn't care.

The stripes seared across my bare bottom left me sore and sorry, but it was what came after that truly left me shaken. The princess of the king family shouldn't be on her knees for anyone, let alone this Bratva brute who has decided to claim for himself what he was meant to safeguard.

Nobody gave me to him, but I'm his anyway.

Now he's going to make sure I know it.

Publisher's Note: King's Temptation is a stand-alone novel which is the sixth entry in the Merciless Kings series. It includes spankings and rough, intense sexual scenes. If such material offends you, please don't buy this book.

A really great series!

I love the main male character. I particularly loved that he proved to be just has strong as the King brothers. He made the family stronger. I have been waiting to read this story. Dominic has always come across so serious, I was looking forward to the female character pushing him out of his comfort zone to the point where I got a good laugh. Sometimes I thought the main female character was spoiled. I wanted to read more from her.
I hope the next story will be about Dominic sister. I would love to know the story of what happened to her and Domimics mother.
What I didn’t not like was the voice of the female narrator. When I listen to a book the narrator sets the tone of the story. The female narration often interfered with my willingness to finish the story. However, because I love the author and this Kings Family drama I pushed that to the side.
Keep them coming!

Least favorite in the series

I did not like the way the sister's character changed, but loved Dimitri. I expected a better ending to the series, I own all the books in the series (rare for me) and was saddened to see the series end. It is so hard to find a good series. I thought the writer would have given a more detailed play back of the overall family but that didn't happen, I didn't like that!

If you are looking for a good mafia family series, this is it!!!! Sad to see it end and the way the ending closed out. :-(

Narrator did a wonderful job.

Angeliques story

I am glad Angelique got her story. There are many steamy scenes. It would not be a King family book without violence, extreme protection of her and a forbidden love. Dimitri is assigned with her safety. He was told to do whatever is necessary to keep her in line. Thomas Locklear's feminine voice is very believable. I find it fascinating how he can flip his voice from high to low and back again lol.

dark, intense

Angelique was in danger, Dimitri's priority was to keep her safe. That didn't include falling in love with her.
He was her protector. She was the Princess of the mafia King famIly.
She was stubborn, strong and broken inside .
Both had a darkness in their soul. Someone was out to kidnap her.
He had to take her away to save her. She was a light of hope to his dark, broken soul.
Alone with her was torture. Both gave in to the sexually intense heat. It was wrong, it was against the family rules. It was taboo.
Piper Stone never disappoints in this action-packed mafia story. Murder, contracts broken, secrets, dark intense steam,
Thomas Locklear narration, as always, is exemplary. How one man can effortlessly be all the characters and give each one their own voice and personality is extraordinary. The sounds effects, gunshots, explosions, thunder, the dog barking, makes this exciting, realistic and a brilliant story to listen to. Thank you for bringing this story to life. I know whenever Thomas Locklear is narrating a story, it will be an exciting experience.
Well done! 👏👏 I was gifted this audio and my this is my honest review.

This one kept me smiling all day!

Just the beginning of this made me smile…the intro people…the intro! That Thomas Locklear is very talented and his Russian accent is one I could listen to all day! The story is simply divine! I have waited for these two characters and Piper Stone did not disappoint! It is also nice to see the rest of of family throughout the story! That ending is perfect!

This can be listened to as a stand alone but it is better if you listen to the whole series.

Brilliant!!

Piper Stone continues to deliver; she is talented with an incredible imagination and is not afraid to cross our delicate boundaries. King's Temptation is the sixth book and outstanding addition to the Merciless Kings series. The storyline was wholly engaging, intense, and riveting; a perfect blend of dark, steam, kink, suspense, action, danger, and romance. The character development is phenomenal; Dimitri and Angelique displayed layers of complexity and emotional depth. They're were the perfect match, their bond, the glue to put back their broken pieces and heal past scars. Chemistry was great, utterly electrifying, I was totally sucked into their journey.

Another stellar performance by Thomas Locklear. He embodied the characters and portrayed them flawlessly. I can't imagine anyone else narrating the series. Aside from having an attractive voice, he is talented and sounds believable in every role; I could easily picture the characters and follow the narrative. Overall, King's Temptation was a satisfying and enjoyable listen with quality narration, one I'll highly recommend.

temptation

Oh Mr Thomas Locklear, that voice... I am a puddle

Dimitri is the Kings right hand man a Capo. He has a major problem because he cannot keep his eyes off Angelique. She is the only daughter of this mafia family. Dimitri calls her his princess
Angelique is no princess she is feisty sassy and fierce! She too is attracted to Dimitri . She knows it can never go anywhere, But when her life is put in danger Dimitris is the one who will protect her!!! This means they spend a lot of time together and Dimitri isn’t shy on giving out discipline when needed.

These two have chemistry . This is a hot listen , with action and twists in its plot.

King's Temptation.

Loved the audiobook listening to the story felt like you were watching the scene unfold. The author Piper Stone has outdone herself again, with Merciless Kings book six. This story socks you in at the start and does not let go until the very end. It has everything you would want in a Mafia story, the danger, suspense, action, enemies, anger, fear, courage, strength, threats, violence, family, confidence, pain, passion / lust, happiness and love. Dimitri is Russian and a Protector to the King's family he watches Angelique from a distance, the electric shock every time they touch. Dimitri is in love with her and she is with him but he cannot cross the line, that was the rule when he started working for them. When an enemy wants Angelique Dimitri was given the job to protect her at all costs. Will he protect her from their enemies.
The narrator Thomas Locklear really has a voice that puts you in a trance it is so mesmerising listening to him. He is so easy to understand his words. Fantastic job by all parties.

Another winner

This book has a great storyline. I love how tough our leading lady is. With so much action throughout you will struggle to put it down. Thomas has shown so much of his talent with this book, with a great sounding Russian accent you will be melting.
