Read Paladin’s Strength (The Saint of Steel, #2) by T. Kingfisher

He’s a paladin of a dead god, tracking a supernatural killer across a continent. She’s a nun from a secretive order, on the trail of the raiders who burned her convent and kidnapped her sisters.

When their paths cross at the point of a sword, Istvhan and Clara will be pitched headlong into each other’s quests, facing off against enemies both living and dead. But Clara has a secret that could jeopardize the growing trust between them, a secret that will lead them to the gladiatorial pits of a corrupt city, and beyond…

Another great entry from Kingfisher. I very much liked both main characters, and also was beating my head for their continued self-beating about wanting the other and as was advertised on Twitter this is definitely a please just bone already! story. A delightful cast of side characters, and truly gross and creepy and scary monsters. This is a fantasy romance with a strong punch of horror, so it makes sense why she self published, but also, more like this please. I’m all about genre mashups, and collectively I feel like we live in a mashup culture, so book marketers need to figure out how to sell more books like this.
