Females young and old, beautiful and plain crave Valerian's touch. None can resist his blatant sensuality and potent allure…until he steals Shaye Holling from a Florida beach and holds her prisoner in his underwater kingdom. The cynical Shaye wants nothing to do with the mighty warlord, but she's inexplicably drawn to him. For underneath the warrior's arrogant beauty lies a complex and powerful man. A man whose caress is like fire.… Now Valerian must fight for the privilege of claiming her as his own. Because there's one thing Shaye doesn't know…that when a nymph discovers his true mate, she's his for life.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This is book 3 in GS's Atlantis series where, in the mythical realm beneath the sea, there are three Kingdoms..... Dragons, Vampires and Nymphs and it's where a whole host of other weird and wonderful creatures live. There are alliances, hatred, friendships, wars, portals and lovers but overseeing it all is the mighty vengeful Poseidon. They could each be stand alone listens.
The handsome Nymphs need sex all the time to keep their strength up but the Dragons have stolen their females so they are forced to steal some Human women and that's when the trouble starts for Valerian, King of the Nymphs when he locks eyes with his mate.... Shaye.
It's fun, fantastical and there's a lot of bantering, humor and angst between the H/H when Shaye doesn't want to instantly drop her panties and stay with the super sexy and gorgeous King so, for the first time, Valerian really has to work hard for it. There's also sub plots involving the Dragons, Vampires and Poseidon and a secondary romance. It's filled with great characters and GS's imagination at world-building is awesome and the Narrator did a good job coping with all the many different voices.
Worth a credit? This is a entertaining, light and enjoyable fantasy romance with a couple of sex scenes between two very likeable main characters. I've listened to the whole series now and have loved every one so, YES, a very creditworthy addition to the series.
I loved the story line. I think the whole concept of the Nymphs was well put together. It had very funny moments and there was definitely times when she made me want the Nymph king lol I give this book 5 stars for the narrator as well. She did great!
The Nymph King was my favorite. He was so darn arrogant but became putty in Shaye's hands. It just went to prove that women can definitely get under your skin.
Personality and enthusiasm! Loved the way the voices were portrayed for each character.
Nymph King : Legends of Atlantis
Let Savannah read all of Gena's books!
Love to Read!! Everything
Yes, I have read several of Gena Showalter and love most of the books...but this one was sooooo lacking. Men who enslave women to mindless nothings who just want sex. No tenderness...no nothing. Except if you were a mate. That sounds like hell to me. Even if I had the perfect man......I could not stand living in that environment. Not to mention you also are suppost to lose all will power. The story line sucked. I could not even force myself to listen to any more..... and I love a great romance....even a lukewarm romance...but this...nope.
It needed a story line.....It was more a man's dream ....a woman's hell
The story was so bad....the voice didn't matter
I hate to be so harsh....normally I look a the reviewers and their comments....I may have to change who I am following because this was awful
