Review: Pleasure of a Dark Prince.

This is the 8th book in the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole and the story of Lucia and Garreth.

Book Blurb:

Can the beast seduce a beauty and make her love him...?

A promise of pleasure ...from a brutal warrior determined to protect her.
Never far from her bow, Lucia the Huntress is as mysterious as she is beautiful. But the secrets she harbors could destroy her-and those she loves-and every day brings more danger. It isn't safe for her to be with Garreth MacRieve, yet whenever she sees the fierce werewolf with his smoldering eyes, she finds herself surrendering to his kiss.

An uncontrollable need ...that can only be sated with her touch. From the shadows, Garreth, prince of the Lykae, has long watched over Lucia, the lovely little Valkyrie who alternately maddens him and inflames his lust. He aches to claim the seductive creature as his own and keep her safe from harm, but first he must convince her to accept him as her guardian. To do that he'll exploit Lucia's greatest weakness-her desire for him.

Pleasure of a Dark Prince rocks!!

This is one of my favorite series and Kresley Cole never disappoints. The world she has created in her Immortals After Dark series is full of vampires, were's, Valkyries, witches, demons, just goes on and on and what I like about the series is how stories seem to be taking place simultaneously with different characters. We may get a reference to another immortal and that may be the being featured in the next book.

In this installment the story revolves around Lucia the Huntress and Garreth MacRieve, Prince of the Lykae.

Lucia has vowed her life to Skathi - and in so doing, has been gifted with the ability to unerringly hit anything she aims at with her bow. She is known predominantly as the Archer. When Lucia made her vow to Skathi - she promised to remain forever chaste - never to know the touch of a man.

Garreth MacRieve has waited years for his chosen mate - he is tired of one night stands and easy pickings from the nymphs - he wants a woman to want him for himself and not because he is Prince of the Lykae. But the Lykae are very sensual creatures - the love nothing more than a great meal, a good fight and a night of passionate sex. Well he's batting 1 for 3 with Lucia...Valkyries don't eat and Lucia won't have sex....

Pleasure of a Dark Prince is awesome - I give it 5 out of 5 stars. :)

Great review! I'm still reading this one, but I'm loving it. I think it's even better than the last one. :)
