Review: Pleasure of a Dark Prince by Kresley Cole

Pleasure of a Dark Prince (Immortals After Dark #8) by Kresley Cole
Synopsis (Goodreads):
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: I'm probably going to say this in every IAD review from here forward so brace yourselves... I love how we get to see events that happened in one book from an entirely different point of view in another. And now I have to back up and say that the beginning of this book runs parallel to some of the events in book 1 and it's been a while since I read book 1. Yes, it took me a bit to wrap my head around why Lachlain and Emma weren't blissed out in their honeymoon suite making mad monkey love. Eventually I caught on, though. I'm quick like that.

This time around we got to see Garreth's pursuit of the lovely Lucia. They did the sexy "I want you but I can't have you or I'll break my promise to a goddess and the world will fall into destruction" dance. It was fun to watch, I must admit. Seriously, watching Lucia fall victim to her body's wants whenever Garreth was around was fabulously fun. And Garreth... Oh, he didn't play nice. He teased her, he touched her, he got her all fired up. It was hot. Ridiculously so.

I liked the overall storyline and how we got to see a lot of setup for future books. I have the next 2 on tap. I'm ready for them! I really can't wait to see how Lucia and Garreth's misstep in the temple plays out for the rest of the gang.
