#1 New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole enraptures again with this seductive tale of a fierce werewolf prince who will stop at nothing to protect the lovely archer he covets from afar.
A Dangerous Beauty... Lucia the Huntress: as mysterious as she is exquisite, she harbors secrets that threaten to destroy her - and those she loves.
An Uncontrollable Need... Garreth MacRieve, Prince of the Lykae: the brutal Highland warrior who burns to finally claim this maddeningly sensual creature as his own.
That Lead to a Pleasure so Wicked... 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.

I'm all about challenging myself lately so I'm using books to do that. They inspire & engage me so I can see what works. Reading is my life.
This was the first of the Immortals After Dark Book I ever read and it was so good I couldn't put it down. When I finally saw that it was available as an audio book I was super Excited! The story is action packed, non stop and funny too!
Robert Petkoff brings each and every character to life and some how he also gives them all a distinct voice! Like when Lothaire made and apperance it sounded just like Lothaire in his own book. This guy is the best in the business!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I’m in total awe whenever I read a Kresley Cole novel because of her incredible world building skills and amazing cast of characters she has created. Pleasure of a Dark Prince has everything you could want. Great action, luscious love making scenes and a few sneaky twists and turns you won’t see coming. The ending alone will have you dying for the next book. I’ve also come to the realization that the character of Nix is possibly the most important one in this whole series. She is the one responsible for all of these character’s destinies and uses them much like chess pieces on a board so she can reach her ultimate goal. Pay very close attention to whenever Nix pops up because it will give you insight on what is in store for her."Pleasure of a Dark Prince is yet another winner where I bow down to the masterful storytelling of Kresley Cole. She now has me wishing for my own Garreth" Finally i So LOVE Robert Petkoff. His voice changing skills are second to none! I could listen to his voice for months on end. Perhaps he'll marry me? Wink Wink .....
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Kresley Cole is still the reigning Queen of the Lore and PNR! I just love all of her books and I'm really looking forward to the next one. Fabulous one-liners, I love all of her characters can't to see Regin's or Charro's story. Oh and Robert Pettkoff ...(groan)...excellent as always.... Like I said I so want a personalized ringtone for my cell phone in your Lykea voice....hmmmm. I think in an installment of IAD all the Lykea should be gathered around in nothing but their tartans, that is just a total drool fest in my mind....hmmm. Kresley Cole is always credit worthy.
This was another great story especially compared to the last one. Back to great writing, strong characters, great story line, lots of action, great chemistry and some more hot and steamy sex. Really liked Garreth and Lucia together.
It is a bummer the next two books in this series are not on audible.
The narrator did a fantastic job of course and as usual.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
This is a great series and narration is out of this world. My only problem is that Audible hasn't got ALL of them!!!!! I'm waiting because I will have this entire collection in my library. I consider it a must have.
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
Poor handsome Lykae Garreth was so bored with his life (women throwing themselves at him all the time) and wished for a challenge. Well, that's certainly what he got when he suddenly feels, smells, sees and tries to claim his mate - because Valkarie Lucia, being the best Archer in the Lore, doesn't want anything to do with Garreth because she's got terrible secrets along with good reasons why - one of which is that she's on a mission to save the Apocalypse from happening.
But devoted Garreth, the Scottish Wolf Prince, is out of control so can't, and won't, take no for an answer so he relentlessly chases Lucia around the world while watching, desiring, protecting, lusting but all the while patiently waiting for the chance to bite her and make her his. As the action-packed storyline finally brings them on the same boat their sizzling sexual chemistry ignites but the sexual tension is the least of their worries as unpleasant characters, creatures and events spoil their plans.... but they must endure and overcome challenges, devastation and heartache before salvation can be theirs.
This intense, riveting, sexy, humorous, emotional, gripping story, with it's witty dialogue, is just what you come to expect from the highly imaginative mind of Kresley Cole. She has delivered yet another IAD book that has a very enjoyable paranormal mystery with suspense, a passionate, tender, touching romance and then she populates it with a host of likeable, loveable and compelling characters like the Soothsayer Nucking Futs Nix who brings cryptic clues and zany humor just when it's needed.
Then, as if we're not spoilt enough, the narration is skilfully done by the talented voices of Robert Petkoff who magically brings to life the many characters, infuses them with a vast range of emotions and leaves the listener in awe and grateful for his part in transforming mere words into another amazing listen.
Woth a credit? This 12 hr adventure will have you elated, exasperated, devastated and captivated and all for under $10 - so there's no question that it's creditworthy but for the price I just bought it saving my credit for a more pricey listen.
I LOVED IT. What an awesome audiobook! Robert Petkoff was on it again! His various voices really kept each character entertaining! I don't think I can go back to reading this series on my kindle.
Sometimes the timeline with this series throw me off, but the events of this book coincided with A Hunger Like No Other. This one was a lykae lead, not demon nor vampire.
My two favorite books featured Lykae, Bowen & Garreth.
In this book Garreth was playing rugby with other supernatural creatures when he scented Lucia, his female. The one had been searching all over for. He quickly followed her scent until he was able to really behold her. She was an archer, the best archer in the lore, but she had taken a vow of chasity. There was a true dilemma because Lykae had to claim their mates and during the coupling, they had to bite and mark their mates. Lucia's excellence in archery came with a price from a god--if she had sex, she would lose her ability. So Garreth set off to prove to Lucia being with him, was worth more than her skill as the #1 Archer.
What Garreth didn't know was that Lucia had other secrets that she was hiding and they were just as big as her gift with the bow & arrow.
These two were hot, they were sweet, they just worked. Garreth was everything someone like Lucia needed or could want. He was unbelieveably patient with her, he was protective and he was sweet. He put her desires and needs above his own in all things. Wow. I loved how he labored to gain her trust and the fact that never took advantage of it. He was good to her and they made a great team.
I am surprised that I am 10 books into this series and I am enjoying each book more and more. Really great series
I am in love with pararomance and am always trying to find new series with a great story and sizzling hot spots!
Um, I have... and read the book! I ♥ all of Kresley's books, just amazing.
I love when Lucia is on the boat, contemplating if Garreth is going to make the jump to the boat.
All of IAD I have listened to, I haven't sought out any other books that he has read.
This one is definitely one of my favorites and it is filled with lots of excitement and the backstory of Lucia and Regan.
Words I live by: Charm is a glow within a woman that casts a most becoming light on others~Jason Mason Brown
Yes, I loved it! The Narrator is wonderful. Can't wait for the whole series to be in audio form
I can't pin point one area... I enjoyed it all
The Scottish accents but he does the whole book wonderfully
Don't Miss Out or you'll regret it :)
I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
It seems like the Immortals After Dark series was written for Robert Petkoff to read! Wow what a pair!! Kresley Cole has written a very steamy and emotional series. If your new to her work start at the beginning and work your way to this one. This series is what Paranormal Romance is all about!!
"Love the series"
I can walk my dogs or clean/iron while listening. Can not do that with book. With such great narrator I admit to laziness, but in case of Kresley Cole, I do get books as well since many have not been availible as audio at time the book came out. So, I have this series fully pre-read so to speak.
Cole is the only author in this gendre I read/listen. I tried some other authors, but none has worked for me. It is nice that there are not only vampires out there.
EVERYTHING! I LOVE THE MAN!
Not my absolute favourite by KC, but still will re-listen again some time soon. Great book. Excellent narrator and good action.
"excellent as usual"
Yes. Love the series in paperback and Robert petkoff is brilliant.
Gareth and lachlain.
Yes. I've listened to the other kresley Cole's he's done. All have been excellent
