Synopsis from Goodreads
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new story in her Wicked series…
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….
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. 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.**
I seriously have no words – none. What I do have is an overwhelming and desperate need to know what happens next!!!!!
The events of two years ago have taken its toll on Brighton, forever changed emotionally and physically, she is trying to navigate her way through her new life and feed her quest for revenge.
However, there are a lot of things Brighton, is as, yet unaware of. Pieces of the puzzle unfold as the war against the Winter Fae continues; twists and very unexpected turns add to the tension within the narrative.
Nonetheless, at the heart of The Prince is the sizzling attraction between Brighton and the Prince. Brighton’s compassion and empathy shine through the story, along with her negative view of herself. Both aspects are at war with each other and the battle inside Brighton is exasperated by her interactions with the Prince and the intensity of the emotions he invokes.
Be warned The Prince ends on a cliffhanger!!!!! Leaving me with a lot of unanswered questions, a disturbing crush on a Fae Prince and a Brownie, as well as my heart being lodged somewhere in my throat.
**Flounces off to search Goodreads for The King** 😢😢😢 A year – I have to wait a WHOLE year for more Brighton**
