~Read an Excerpt ~

A Look into the story: Pleasure of a Dark Prince is the 9th book in Kresley Cole’s “The Immortals After Dark” series. It’s main couple involves a werewolf, Garreth MacRieve , who’s tan, built, perverted and loving, and has a Scottish accent you learn to love. Lucia, or as Garreth says “Lousha” is a Valkerie who has vowed to remain chaste throughout her immortal life; if she breaks this vow she loses her powers as an archer, which of course makes the relationship between her and her werewolf more complicated and dangerous in her eyes.
After failing at her attempt to kill Garreth, Lucia finds herself becoming attracting to the werewolf, but she fears him more than anything so she keeps her distance, even going as far as to avoid MacRieve for an entire year while going around the world; all while she was clueless to the fact that the man was watching her the entire time, wanting only to claim and protect her from harm. But the run doesn’t continue any longer than Lucia had hoped, because she soon finds herself having to go into the Amazon rainforest in search of something that will help with preventing an apocalypse. All seems to be going well for her, that is, until she sees Garreth running towards the boat she’s on. Now she’s stuck with him because over the past year, his desire for her as only grown stronger and he’s no longer willing to let her escape so easily. The real problem is, Lucia’s no longer sure that she really wants to run from the man anymore.
~Overall Thoughts~
I’ve been waiting for this couple for a while now and I loved how the myth and the lore were fully involved in their world and how human interaction wasn’t a huge problem; allowing the characters to show their true selves instead of hiding themselves behind “normal” masks. Minor characters like Nix were hilarious and made the book even more enjoyable to read. Another thing that touched my heart was MacRieve’s personality. Even though he was a complete pervert with Lucia and thought…highly of his male body, he still had that sweet and loving side to offer to her and prove that he would be by her side to protect her always (Just like any good and loveable dog would do

Favorite moment: [Garreth is going to jump into the Amazon river shirtless and is about to take off his jeans]
Lucia:"What about the piranhas?"
Garreth: "I doubt the little fishies will snack on anything critical. They only go for small prey." (
The male it's peak)
