“This is the future of romance.” — Adriana Herrera, author of the Dreamers series

The Rebel King, the powerful conclusion to the All The King’s Men Duet, from USA Today bestselling author Kennedy Ryan,

is available now!

Ambition. Revenge. Love.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but the man I trusted with everything was a trickster. A thief who stole my love. If what we had was a lie, why did it feel so real? The man I swore to hate will have it all, and wants me at his side. But power is a game, and we’re the pawns and players.

Facing insurmountable odds, will we win the world, or will we lose it all?

HOT DAMN!!! The Rebel King was the perfect ending to this duet. The powerful punch this series delivers hit me in all my feels. I’m continually impressed with the way Ms. Ryan is able to convey a story that has the reader so absorbed into the story that the outside world no longer exists.


Lennix and Maxim are the ultimate power couple. These two never fail to keep it real. In a world where a woman would be more likely to concede her career and ambitions, Lennix makes it known that she’s not going to give up what she has worked to build. The support Maxim gives Lennix in her endeavors was a nice change of pace to see in the romance world.

She’s my survival kit. The girl who chases stars has war in her eyes, and she’ll need it. The toughest fight of our lives is ahead. The fight to heal.

I love those words. Maxim offers the reader a glimpse, one of many, into how he views Lennix. Together they will forge the future. Along the way, they both must be vulnerable with each other to allow wrongs to be righted.

Nothing has changed, for me, from the first book where I said that ” I want to live within the pages of this book and be best friends with Lennix and have my own Maxim to admire me for the advocate work I’m doing.” RIGHT THERE is why I love books by Ms. Ryan, she creates couples who love and support each other. No one is a doormat or has to give up their dreams for the other person to thrive. Each person in the relationship is an equal partner.

The Rebel King is a duet. The story continues from the first book into the second book. It’s a romance within the confines of social justice. The reader will want to be best friends with these characters. One last thing, November is Native American Heritage Month and Native Americans are among one of the most underrepresented groups of people in the romance genre. I hope Ms. Ryan’s book is a flood gate to more books featuring Native Americans entering the romance genre in the coming years.

Her words break on a sob, and the elegant line of her shoulders trembles. “No one like you.”

I palm her breasts, squeezing the tight nipples between my fingers. Her indrawn breath tells me she likes it.

“Anything you want,” she pants, circling her ass on me. “Take it.”

“I want today with you,” I say, changing the angle of my thrust slightly, but hitting a new spot that makes her moan.

“I can’t.”

I force myself to stop abruptly and start easing out.

“No!” She reaches back and grabs my ass. “Don’t you dare.”

I stop pulling out, but don’t move. She squirms, tries to grind on my cock, but I grip her hips, holding her still.

“Son of a bitch,” she growls. “Finish me, Doc.”


“Do you think I don’t feel how hard that cock is? You want this, too.”

“Obviously,” I force my voice to casual, like it doesn’t matter to me one way or the other. “But I want a day with you more. What’s it going to be?”

I push in and give her a quick, shallow thrust.

“Oh, yes.” She starts circling her hips, and I stop again. “Bastard!” “I’ve told you my terms.”

My cock hates me, silently cursing me in four different languages for not finishing this right now.

“One day,” she concedes breathlessly. “I can give you one day.”

I take off the reins and fuck her until we’re both shaking. We almost fall when our orgasms hit. I ease out, sit on the shower bench and set her on my lap. Greedy, thirsty, we kiss until my lips are numb, her fingers burrowing into my wet hair, my fingers tunneled into hers. I break the kiss, taking her face between my slick hands and searching her eyes.

“One day,” I remind her, panting.

She nods, sucking my bottom lip smiling. “One day.”
