Rise Of A Queen (Kingdom Duet, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rise of a Queen by Rina Kent

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nothing is fair in love.

This is my kingdom. My territory.

I own everything and control everyone, Aurora included.

She shouldn’t have barged into my world with no armour.

She shouldn’t have caught my attention with no warning.

Alas, she did.

Then she thought she could disappear.

If a battle is what it’ll take to protect and own her, I’ll shed blood.

Wars aren’t fair, and neither am I.

Rise of a Queen is the second part of a duet and is not standalone.

Rise of A Queen

Rina Kent can do hot possessive men like nobody’s business!

Character development: 🤓🥸😎😤😳

The setting: England

The Hero: Jonathan King – father to Aiden King, uncle to Levi King, Jonathan has always been seen as ruthless and selfish. He was married to Clarissa’s sister Alicia in order to get revenge on her father for ruining his family.

The heroine: Aurora Harper (a.k.a. Clarissa Griffin) – Alicia’s half sister. Alicia came from a wealthy family but Clarissa was raised by her father (a.k.a. The Duct Tape Killer), Aurora was blamed and attacked by the victims families even though she was only sixteen at the time and was the one that turned her father in. Now he is trying to get paroled for good behavior and wants her to testify.

The Love Story: Jonathan bought out 51% of the stocks in Aurora’s company in order to force her to be his. Though Aurora fights him on just about everything, he likes to think he owns her completely. The passion between them is sizzling hot and Jonathan is changing.


I like the give and take between Aurora and Jonathan as well as the dominant possessiveness he displays. It is a bit ridiculous but so hot! This book is literally charring my kindle it is so scorching. I love every bit of it. Though in real life I would hate a guy like that, he is so sexy as a romantic lead. Definitely Jeffrey Dean Morgan fits the bill as Jonathan King!

Like all of Rina’s books, this is not only a steam fest but has a good storyline. There is the animosity between Jonathan and his former best friend Ethan, the strained relationship between Jonathan and Aiden, the even worse relationship between Aurora and Aiden. The intrigue of the packages Aurora is getting at her old apartment with thumb drives including snippets of Alecia talking to her and telling her about the past. Then to top it all off we have Aurora’s father, the serial killer in the mix.
