~ Synopsis ~
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer…preferably in bed. That’s always been Kingsley Edge’s strategy with his associate, the notorious New York dominatrix Nora Sutherlin. But with Nora away in Kentucky, now it’s Kingsley’s chance to take her place at the feet of the only man he’s ever wanted — Søren, Nora’s on-again, off-again lover — until a new threat from an old enemy forces him to confront his past.
Wes Railey is still the object of Nora’s tamest yet most maddening fantasies, and the one man she can’t forget. He’s young. He’s wonderful. He’s also thoroughbred royalty and she’s in “his” world now. But Nora is no simpering Southern belle, and her dream of fitting into Wesley’s world is perpetually at odds with her dear Søren’s relentlessly seductive pull.
Two worlds of wealth and passion call to her and whichever one Nora chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make… unless someone makes it for her….
Just when you think things can’t get anymore complicated – I crack open The Prince. Jesus.
Kingsley Edge ….
There has always been a slight tension between Kingsley & Nora – but I never knew the intensity of it until this book. As Nora is off trying to figure things out with Wesley, at Soren’s request mind you – Kingsley & Soren are off on a hunt of their own – one that takes them back to where their entire relationship started…. where they shared some of the most brutal intimacy two people can experience.
I’ve always been curious about Kingsley – I mean the way Nora has always described him…. and the unusual love/hate relationship he seemed to have with Soren… all those little questions whirling around in my head as I read The Siren & The Angel are finally answered and holy-fuck. I wasn’t prepared for it; that’s for sure.
The Prince may be my favorite book of the series so far – we get a peek at what made Soren the man he is today, and his relationship with both Kingsley & Nora …at the moment things really took flight between these three. It was beautiful – tragic – brutal and some of the most amazing stuff I’ve read in years.
But with these revelations there is also something else going on entirely – someone lurking in the background taunting Kingsley, Soren and Nora. Perhaps it’s the thief who stole Nora’s file from Kingsley’s house? Whoever the culprit – they’re out for blood.
Things seem to be getting darker… and darker as the story unfolds.
Kingsley’s always been a sort of strength in this series, but for once you will see his vulnerabilities shine bright, both in the past and in the present as he and Soren play cat & mouse with their past….
I questioned Soren and his depravity, at times it was hard to stomach. He is a true sadist. But as the store unfolds and the past is brought to light – again, I don’t hate him. I don’t pity him either. He’s working with what’s available to him. He’s working out his past in the only way he knows how, with someone who loves him enough to take everything and anything that is offered. No matter the price.
Again, this series is not for the faint of heart – go into it with a very open mind and you will find yourself falling for these characters one story at a time.
