"Powerful paranormal romance"

For just under a century, Alex has worked as an incubus for the Evil One. His job is to seduce humans so that the victim obtains their vain wish, but at an exorbitant price of becoming one of hell's minions.

The Prince of Darkness offers Alex a gift, vengeance on the sorceress Catherine by seducing her and turning her over to the Evil One. Catherine's spirit possesses the body of a descendant Callie Wisdom, who risks her soul to find the cure to the family curse that leaves her father blind. When seven days pass, Catherine will own the body. Alex travels to New Orleans where he meets Callie in her family antique shop where her goodness surprises Alex. Callie and Alex begin to fall in love, leaving him wonder if her pure soul will free him from the control of the Prince of Darkness or will his dark soul make her the latest resident of hell.

A STRANGER'S KISS is a strong paranormal romance centering on the complexities of love as a more powerful tool than that of anything malevolent. The story line is fast-paced and vividly described so that the audience can taste brimstone when Alex visits his boss. Callie is a wonderful lead protagonist though her purity at 200 proof seems superior to Mother Teresa levels. Still readers will want Callie to save Alex from eternal damnation while also ending the family curse at the cost of a sequel or two. Kimberly Raye must write for the Prince because she seduces her readers with a powerful paranormal tale that will leave her fans satiated and yet craving more.

Alex Daimon is the incarnation of desire, the embodiment of lust, the soul of carnality. For centuries he has existed to bring down the just and the wicked alike, to corrupt the innocent. Thus comes he to the bed of Callie Wisdom, the young heir of the witch who bound him to Darkness...and the girl is ripe for possession. He means to do what he's done so many times before--seduce and destroy. But looking into her crystalline eyes, Alex wishes that Callie might see some end to his curse. And introducing her to passion, Alex wonders if this time, instead of his kiss drawing his victim down into darkness, her love may not raise him up to the light.
