Author:  S.L. Jennings

Blurb:  Dorian Skotos is Dark. And although that brand of sheer, unrelenting evil is a direct threat to her life, Gabriella is tragically in love with him.

Gabriella knew it was all too good to be true.  The way his touch radiated electricity right to her core, the way his ice blue eyes somehow made panties drop involuntarily, how this sexy half-smile crumbled the barriers around her heart...  Dorian was extraordinary in every way.

She ignored the alarm bells for the sake of pleasure and a little slice of peace from her mixed-up life.  She thought that whatever he was, she could help him.  Maybe even change him.  But now that the proof of Dorian's true identity and what he was sent for is staring her in the face, Gabriella can't deny the inevitable.  And confronting that truth could very well slaughter more than just her fragile hear.

The Dark Prince is the second book of The Dark Light Series and the follow-up novel to Dark Light.

"So this is it?  You're going to do it?" I whisper with a weak, wavering voice.  My brash and bold nature has completely abaondoned me.  I was defeated from the start.

"Yes."  The look on his face is pure agony and regret.  Why?  This is what he's wanted all along, toying with my heart just to get close to me.  Yet this is not the face of a cold-hearted paranormal killer.  This is the face of a man tormented by his own demons.

I am one of those readers who was completely and totally sucked into the Dark/Light World, and I reread the story of Dorian and Gabs at least 5 time.  If you have not read my review of The Dark Light, you can do so here:  Review of Dark Light

How did I feel about the second in the series, The Dark Prince?  To be honest, I was scared to read it.  I didn't know how it would live up to my expectations.  You know that feeling, right???

The Dark Prince did not disappoint!!!  Passion and heat jumps off the pages in a full force assault.  The entire back story unfolds as Gabs learns who Dorian really is, why he was sent to her and what he must do.  How can Dorian even more intense than he was in TDL?  He is!!!  Dorian is shown in all his power and his weakness.  His entire soul is bared.  We see him as he is:  a conflicted man in desperate love with a woman he can never have.  There are seemingly too many forces in both their lives for their relationship to succeed.

One of those forces being Gabs herself.  She throws more obstacles in her way than almost any character  I have read.  Some valid, some not.  She lives in varying states of anger, pain and hurt all the while trying to push it away and not be who she truly is.

The sex?  The heat between Dorian and Gabs (Aurora? Jared?) is LETHAL!!!  Seriously, this is a hot, hot read.  Dorian's ruined me (shiver)...
Overall, I give this Book a 4 and definitely plan to reread.
Now on the interview that Gabs was so kind to give to us:
Gabs, you seem mature beyond your years. Where do you think that comes from?
You know that Infectious Kink is an erotica blog, so I hope you don't mind some kinky questions... We'll ease into it...
Oh yeah? Well, I am no stranger to kink, obviously.
Let’s see…I guess it’d have to be my upbringing as a military brat. We moved around a lot and being an only child, it was difficult making friends and fitting in. I guess I learned not to take shit and stay true to myself from an early age.
Do you generally prefer dark haired men or light?
Good question. Ummm, I’d have to choose dark hair. Paired with incredibly light eyes…instant panty-dropper.
With all of your experiences with Dorian, which is your favorite?
You mean sexually? Wow, um…I can’t really pick just one. I do like when he gets aggressive. That feeling that he wants me so bad that he can’t contain himself, that he can’t get enough…it drives me insane.
You will be managing a lingerie store for Dorian. What would suggest for Aurora if she stopped by? A nice bustier? Garters? What do you think Jared would like?
What would I suggest? I would suggest she back her skinny ass up and get the hell out of my store. And I could give a damn what Jared likes on her. That’s not something I care to think about.
Light or dark chocolate?
Dark chocolate.
Let's say Dorian suggested a 3-some. Who do you think he would pick for the 3rd? Who would you prefer?
Dorian would never pick another guy to join us. He’d flip his shit. And there’s no way in hell I’d let Aurora join us. Of course, I’d prefer someone I was close to. Someone I felt comfortable with. There is someone I have in mind. Well…two people actually.
Did you and Dorian do anything special for Valentine's Day?
Well, Dorian and I have never been together for Valentine’s Day. And that holiday is just not my thing. I’m not a flowers and candy kinda girl.
How do you see your relationship with Dorian progressing now?
Now? Well shit, it could only get better from here. At least it better.
