Rating 4 1/2 out of 5
This book is really good, just enough hot sex and storyline, so you don’t get bored of either one. This is one mystery where I could say, “it’s a sexy ride trying to figure out who did the crime” the whole way.
Jordan is 40 year’s old sexy and rich, he owns one of the top investments firms in the country, he is handsome every woman’s dream, but he has only one woman in mind that he wants to make his. You see Jordan wants a D/s relationship and he wants Roxanne his to surrender to him, But he has a lot to take care of before she even thinks about it, it’s a adventure of hot sex, traders, kidnapping, new friend and jail time for one along the way. Now, I just have to get the next book……

1.The First Time
Author: Alex Prentiss
One by one they go missing. And in the lake a voice cries out: “Save them. . . .”
In the darkness, in a lake in the middle of a prosperous college town, Rachel Matre feels the water caressing her bare skin, teasing her senses, drawing her body into a lush erotic embrace. For twenty years she has communed with the lake spirits this way—and told no one. The price is simple: She must help those in need.
But now a series of young women have gone missing. The police don’t have any bodies, or even a single suspect. Only the spirits seem to sense the truth. Through them, Rachel finds herself drawn into a madman’s web. She alone can save the missing women. But who can save her?
1 1/2 stars
This book has paranormal romance on the back, but there is NO stinking HEA. When I see romance I think well there is going to be romance and a HEA, but these book now your lucky to get just sex forget the HEA or romance.. But anyway if you really want to read this book please read the few spoilers before buying, I have to say its kind of creepy.
The first of the book was hard to get in to because, Rachel goes into a lake and the lake makes love to her yep, its creepy too, She calls them spirits and thinks there is more than one, but she really doesn’t know anything about them. The plot starts off good except for the creepy part. There are some girls in town that gets kidnapped, so you have a decent mystery there. Now let me touch on the romance and just sex parts, she has several sexual encounters with the lake and herself. She know Ethan in a very small way, until she asks him out and that’s not until page 179 then she is on a couple of dates and spills her guts to him after sex, about the lake and he is like well, ok, (whatever! is what, I said) so that’s the romance part in other words lets skip the romance also grrrr , Anyway he goes nuts trying to find her after she gets kidnapped then she dumps him (again whatever grrr!!!). I don’t think I have ever been so mad at a stinking book, but I should have know something wrong when RT only gives 3 stars.

Pleasures of a Dark Prince
Author: Kresley Cole
Paranormal Romance paperback 431 pgs.
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.

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.
Fantastic!! This is now my favorite book in this series so far, they just keep getting better. Cole delivers a wild ride in this book, one that kept me continue to read until the whole book was done.
This book does go back and dip into the first book a little, but its wasn’t like most I have read, Cole kept it fresh and exciting.
I loved Garrerth, it didn’t matter how much Lucia threw at him he just shook it off and kept coming. Lucia is great, she is stubborn, but not one that makes you want to throw the book against the wall and quit reading. The ending is one that will make you carve for more…..
If your a Immortals After Dark fan don’t miss this one. If you have never read this series, please give them a try they all are awesome.
**Little spoilers below**
Lucia makes a comment to stay a pure, Do you think she can hold out? Its one ruff ride trying not to cave in to your desire, especially with the hot werewolf is on your tail.
This book gives you a good ideal of what, be careful of what you wish for means. When MacRieve finds women easy, he makes a simple wish for a woman to be hard to get. Will he regret it or not? You need to read how a simple wish can get you in so much trouble, its one exciting ride the whole way.
