Publication date: 2010. 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.

She needs me, to. e wanted to roar with satisfaction. As soon as he’d uncovered her creamy breasts, his mouth latched onto one of her nipples. She gave a cry when he suckled her hard, groaning against he. y the time he’d ripped off her panties, she was shivering-but not from cold. He’d trained her body to respond to his, had learned how to pet her, how to make her melt. As he moved to her other nipple and his hand skimmed down her.

FINAL DECISION: This story is a darker than others in the series. I also thought that there were dark secrets that Lucia was keeping that ended up putting both her and Garreth at risk at the end of the book. I was disappointed that the drama of this book turned so much on Lucia keeping a secret that she should have revealed.

THE STORY: Lucia the Huntress (a Valkyrie) is an amazing archer and has a dark and secretive past. When the Lykae (werewolf) Garreth MacRieve scents Lucia, he recognizes her as his mate. Lucia has sworn an oath of celibacy and tries to avoid the determined Garreth. Garreth spends his time watching and protecting Lucia from a distance until she goes on a journey to confront her past and save the future.

OPINION: There was so much that I liked about this book but I did not like it as much as others in the series. My biggest complaint is that it depended so much on Lucia keeping the secret of her past. She doesn't disclose it until it is too late and Lucia and Garreth almost die because of it. I slowly became annoyed by her continued determination to keep her secrets even when it obviously was necessary to disclose.

Despite this, I really liked these characters. I thought that Lucia was an intriguing character because she funneled her powerlessness into being powerful and yet fair and thoughtful. I felt for her painful past and the fact that she has to confront her pain again and again. Garreth is a sweetheart. I'm a fan of these "wolfy" characters. Affectionate, determined to bring joy and pleasure to their mates in all ways. I loved how he cares for Lucia even in the face of her determination to reject him.

This was a good book but not one of my favorites of the series.

WORTH MENTIONING: By the time this book ends, there are big things afoot.

CONNECTED BOOKS: PLEASURE OF A DARK PRINCE is the ninth book in the Immortals After Dark series. It can be read as a standalone but readers should be aware that these books build upon one another regarding an overarching storyline. I think the books are better read in order.

STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.

Kresley Cole has an incredible imagination. Pleasure of a Dark Prince is just one more of her good books.
She created a whole world for the Immortal series - The Lore - of mythical creatures that live in our "normal" world.

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but I would advise you to start with the first one of the series. It gives the reader a bit more comprehension - and enjoyment - of the hundreds of secondary characters that appears here and there along the story.

The main characters:
Garreth MacRieve is the heir to the Lykae kingdom - or rather, its king. The hot, handsome werewolf, who waits for his mate - his one and only, forever and ever - for almost a thousand years, still doesn't believe his brother, the former king, is dead.
Until his mate arrives - and/or his brother is found - Garreth enjoys his life as a single and powerful man would - and in a lot more reckless way than some, earning for himself the title "the Dark Prince".

Lucia, the Archer, is a delicate, levelheaded, thousand year old Valkirie. When she was sixteen, she has vowed to be chaste and pure for her whole life, serving the goddess Skanthi, in return for being saved from death. She has a horrible secret, which is only known by her Valkirie "sister", Regin, the Radiant; the Skanthi goddess and the villain itself - or so she thought.
This evil secret rises every 500 years and it is her worst nightmare, which she must face as part of her vow.
Until she meets Garreth, she has had no interest in men, but with him she is loses the full possession of her mind, and there is an immediate attraction between them.
However, Lucia cannot forsake her vows is she wants to live and save the world from the villain. She is a bit contradictory at the beginning, but as the story unfolds, we understand why.

Garreth wants, needs - must have - her, but she is all he can't have. Specially now as the next 500 years is close at door.

So, our fun... er... the story begins!

Fast paced; with hilarious situations; twist and turns galore; erotic sex scenes; strong, willful, beautiful female heroines and hot, sexy, tortured heroes, great, charming, horrible foes - yeah, I know, an oxymoron - and terrifying villains, Kresley Cole takes us around the world, from the swamps of Louisiana to the great Amazon Forest, its huge rivers, endless tributaries and amazing, awesome animals in a hunt for a HEA for Garreth and Lucia.

Btw, I lived in Amazonia (Brazil) and I know she did her research well: the native boats; the awesome Amazon river and its dangers; its extraordinary trees, lilies and orchids; the heat, humidity and daily rain; and the animals' size and the threat they pose; all is correct, apart from only once when her creative mind exaggerated on the crocodiles' sizes, but it was meant to fit the story. And this is paranormal after all. It was missing the thousand of mosquitos and the variety of bug and insects - but that was okay. After all, it was not a book on the Amazonia fauna and I didn't need to be reminded of the weekends, when I was a guest in nicely built and comfortable friends' houses, being bitten by those annoying creatures even on unspeakable parts! :P

For those who love a nice escapade from the realities of our world, and those who like a light, fantastic, paranormal erotic read, I DO RECOMMEND IT.

I must raise a point that always makes me mad: the typos. And here comes the most interesting part - for me, at least. Being an avid reader of almost every genre, and a beginning author, I hate the infamous and irksome typos. Typos haunt and hunt me.

I speak many languages, a few fluently, others no so much, just passable enough to make myself understood, but my Portuguese is flawless.
There was not only one, but three or four typos - or misspelled words - and a surname that could have never been Brazilian (but it was close) - on the twenty or more Portuguese words or sentences (give or take, I was not counting, I was enjoying the story).
Just two examples that I remember: it should have been magnífico instead of magnicente (Portuguese has no such word), and Marcos Damiãno, should have been Marcos Damião (Damiano would be a tentative mix of Portuguese and Spanish). Damiãno makes no sense for Brazilians. We would never have the ã + a consonant, in this case.

And yet, I did not take a single star from my rating. Why?
Because this is such a good story, so funny, so fast-paced; there are action, fight, love, sex and relationships enough to make the Portuguese typos just a laughable moment, imagining such a creative American author trying to unveil the secrets of such a difficult language as Portuguese is.

I'm not being easy on her. No. I'm just acknowledging that when the story is captivating to the reader, a few mistakes can be overlooked - easily!

Hey, Kresley, if you ever need a helping hand on your Portuguese, I can beta read for you! :)

Another page-turner from KC! Lots of Lore-centered mythology. Lucia and Garreth were written so well together.
This one is probably my favorite from the series so far. So much love (yet not too sappy), and lots of adventure.

Spoilers ahead!

KC killed this IAD book! The scenes from the Amazon were so enthralling, definitely a page-turner!

I loved the cameos of some of my favorites and their quirks (Nix, Reign)---had me cracking up.

I adored Lucia. Strong, determined but still had weaknesses (hello, hot rugby-playing Lykae!).

Garreth. Oh boy, another MacRieve to love! He was stubborn, but not as much as Lachlain. I loved how carefree he seemed the entire story, like nothing would deter him from Lucia just because he loved her (not so much the instinct or fate)- his instinct guided him to her, but it seemed he actually liked her.

As I said above, the Amazon scene(s)? Awesome.
