The second part takes place one year after in the Amazon jungle and river. Gareth finds her and he decides that he will help her —no matter how strongly Lucia denies his help. My God, the sexual tension in this book was over the top. Between silly jokes like: "It's no' your time of the month. I know that. And what do you know about my turning? Nothing will stop you- no cage can hold you. Did I miss anything?
Many secrets. Scary human flesh eaters. Huge Amazon predators. Breathtaking story. I enjoyed every bit of it. The mysteries, the adventure, the scary parts, the passion.
And the jaguar shifters are also introduced. How awesome is this! View all 16 comments. I loved Garreth, he's Lachlain's brother and on a mission to claim his mate. The incidents he's thrown into is very much like his brother's. Lucia the Huntress never gives up so easily when it comes to her life, so she fights the temptation pulling her to him strongly, no matter how hard it gets.
I didn't have any suspicions when she denied Garreth and pushed him away for her pain being so real and hurting her all along this much. Garreth, too, is not a complex character to me as he's supposed to be, unlike Lachlain, sometimes he annoyed me when they venture into the woods and do something precarious to their lives because of his uncontrolled instinct, and it incites Lucia even more.
Maybe this is your way of flirting? The last chapter was the reason I decided to give this book five stars, and that cliffhanger is so cruel I have to pick the next one up right after I finished this book.

It was a fabulous thrill ride from the start all the way to the harrowing, grisly climax, and contained my favorite IAD hero sorry, Sebastian , the Prince of the Lykae, Garreth MacRieve. Ahhh MacRieve Wolf all names that the heroine, Lucia the Huntress called him , I totally fell for your Scottish charm, your dogged determination, and your devotion to your lass, "Lousha".
Your humor, your sexy brogue, your singlemindedness to claim your mate You were a worthy mate for the fair maiden Lucia, and I was hoping and praying that the resistent Lucia would realize that and that you wouldn't give up on her. I won't get into the plot too much--not sure I could even adequately explain it. This is the 9th book in the IAD series, and they must be read in order. After the first pages where readers of the series will get all caught up with what's already happened in the series, Lucia and Garreth's story takes off, and it becomes un-put-down-able.
Garreth knows that Lucia is his mate, and he goes to the ends of the earth to be with her. Even though the Valkyrie Lucia is attracted to the Lykae Garreth, she wants nothing to do with him.
She tries to run from him and lose him any way she can shooting arrows in him slows him down while she gets ready to face off with her evil nemisis, Crom Cruach. The time for fighting Crom is getting closer and closer. If Lucia gives into her unusual desire for Garreth, she will most likely lose her archery skills, and then who would be able to battle Crom?
Lucia would like to get rid of Crom once and for all, and hears about a way to do that. But it requires a trip into the most deadly parts of the Amazon. She must find the one thing that could bring him down for good, and it's hidden somewhere deep in the Amazon. With some clues from the valkyrie soothsayer Nix hilarious as always , and with Garreth doggedly tagging along, Lucia has to fight some deadly beings blocking her way, and her impossible attraction to Garreth.
Along the way she falls for Garreth, but ends up having to make some heartbreaking decisions before she and Garreth can have a future together--a furute that she thought would be impossible for her. Loved the sexual tension in this one! And it starts out almost immediately, as soon as Garreth first senses his mate is near. And when they lay eyes on each other Garreth is determined to claim Lucia, and although she's aroused by him, she doesn't want to be.
She thinks being mated to Garreth would be the end of her so-called "career" as the world's best archeress, and she can't imagine giving that up. But Garreth keeps wearing her down, teasing her with what could be, arousing her to the point where she can't think straight and is ready to give in to him.
This goes on and on for page after page, with Garreth gaining more and more of Lucia's body and her trust until finally when the full moon urges him to finally claim her That was one smokin' hot scene! The ending was one gripping, emotional 50 pages. I went from being terrified for Lucia and Garreth, to being horrified with what they had to go through, to my heart breaking for them both.
I had tears welling up and I was on the edge of my seat as I hoped and prayed that they would have their much deserved HEA. Fans of this series, I think you're going to love this one. I always end up loving KC's heroes, but sometimes I have a bit of a problem with her heroines some can be a little cold-hearted. I had no problems with Lucia, other than wishing that she would trust Garreth completely and reveal all her secrets to him.
Pleasure of a Dark Prince
I remember when this book first came out, it was getting rave reviews from my fellow Twitterers. This may be the case, in this instance, because overall, when I think back, the book was good! What I think is neat about this series, is that all of these books occur within the same time period as the other books. At some point, everyone comes together, their lives intertwine, secrets are revealed, questions answered etc…. I can scent your interest. Her face flushed a light pink along her cheekbones.
REVIEW: Pleasure of A Dark Prince by Kresley Cole
Dear Ms. It is no secret that I am a big fan of your Immortals After Dark series, and I have certainly made no secret of the fact that the Lykae "fated mate" books are not among my favorites. What surprised me about this book, though, was some frenetic-feeling plotting, especially in the second half of the book, that I felt substantially undermined the novel's and relationship's dramatic tension. For those who have been reading the series in order of publication, Pleasure of A Dark Prince returns us to the events of the very first book, A Hunger Like No Other not only an interesting resistance of linearity, but also a clever way of drawing attention back to the beginning of the series , wherein Garreth MacRieve was imprisoned by the Valkyrie to lure his brother, Lachlain, to his dying mate, Emma. We knew from A Hunger Like No Other that Lucia was Garreth's mate, but at the time we did not know what had transpired between them already. Pleasure of A Dark Prince begins with Lucia, the Archer, on the hunt and stumbling across a demons v.
