Review: Pleasure of a Dark Prince by Kresley Cole 18+


Lucia the Huntress: as mysterious as she is exquisite, she harbors secrets that threaten to destroy her --- and those she loves.


Garreth MacRieve, Prince of the Lykae: the brutal Highland warrior who burns to finally claim this maddeningly sensual creature as his own.


From the shadows, Garreth has long watched over Lucia. Now, the only way to keep the proud huntress safe from harm is to convince her to accept him as her guardian. To do this, Garreth will ruthlessly exploit Lucia's greatest weakness --- her wanton desire for him.

My Thoughts

Lucia is a woman who made a grave mistake when she was sixteen- and has been paying for it for over a thousand years. She is known as the Archer. She is the best Archer ever. hands down- and she isn't modest about it. Circumstances have made her sort of a hand- maiden to a Goddess who hates all men. Her Archery talents- however- are not natural. They were given to her by the goddess- as was her bow- in exchange for saving Lucia's life when she was only 16 years old and had not come into her immortality yet. The Goddess gave her the bow and her amazing ability, but at a cost. If she ever missed her target, she would suffer an indescribable amount of pain for each arrow missed.  She had her talents with the arrow as long as she remained dedicated to the goddess and took a vow of celibacy from that day forward. If she succumbs to the wills of her body, she will lose her name she earned over thousands of years and any talent she ever had with a bow and arrow. And she needs her talent with the arrow in order to protect herself from a terror greater than any she has ever know. A terror that resurfaces every 500 years. The cause of her near death and her fatal mistake. 

Garreth is a Werewolf who is just as old as Lucia. The moment he sees her while she is out on the hunt, he knows that she is his mate. He literally stalks her and makes a less than stellar impression. As a matter of fact, she shoots him with an arrow after he kisses her. okay, three arrows. :) but he counters with one of my favorite lines of his. 'I still dunnae regret it' Oh, I didn't mention he has a Scottish accent. *swoon* He is a semi funny character and he is kind of adorable in an overbearing stalker kind of way. (haha) and he never gives up on his lady. that is all. 

Yes, the title and even the description insinuate the book will have sex in it, so dunnae be shocked. so obviously 18+ audience. and you should read it. It is pretty good. :D
