What’s It All About?
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world (Wicked by Jennifer). And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
She’s everything he wants….
Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.
She’s everything he can’t have…
Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she wants to do is help him, but he leaves her little choice. Forced to work alongside him, she begins to see the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.
She’s everything he’ll take….
But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone close to him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing between them each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be his undoing.
She’s everything he’d die for….
My Review In a Nutshell:
Well, I wasn’t expecting to love this novella as much as I do. There was a lot of lusty heat packed into 125 pages. Like, damn.
First things first! You can absolutely read this if you haven’t read Wicked. BUT! If you do go that route, the resolution of Wicked is obviously discussed in The Prince, so it’ll be spoiler-ish.
One of the reasons I always come back to Jennifer’s novels are for the comedy and hilarious pop-culture references. As well as relatable heroines who are not only bad-ass, but intelligent and witty. The story moved quickly with a big WTF moment in each chapter, lots of action and thrill.
I also appreciate the message The Prince is putting out there about racism. Even though we are reading about Fae and humans, the lesson absolutely applies to modern day life. Basically, racism is REAL, no matter how much some want to pretend it is not.
I really loved this novella and can’t wait to read the next. There are some gaps to be filled and some kinks to be worked out, so i’m going to need The King right meow.
P.S TINK IS BACK, BITCHES.
