M/M ROMANCE LOVERS ALERT!!! bev got some of our reading crew into this trilogy BIG time. And now a few of ’em are rocking back and forth in the corner just waiting for #3 to be released (by the way… it’s releasing at midnight). 😀 Tee hee!!!
I have a feeling some will be pulling all nighters. 😉 And I think these are M/M historical fantasy.
bev: When i read them they were Captive Prince Vol.1 & Captive Prince Vol. 2 by S.U. Pacat. Now it’s Captive Prince & Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat. When I read them I think they were indie and now it looks like they are under Berkley. Price jump too. Ouch. A few blogs I read went crazy over them. I ended up reading them pretty much back to back in one sitting…. I’m going to re read the first 2 in Jan. They are pretty intricate and a bit dark. …They are so very very good ladies. Really.
Ashley: You should definitely try The Captive Prince series, by C. S. Pacat. There are two books in the series, with a third coming out soon.
Fabi: Bev, I’m at 40% in Captive Prince and I gotta tell you, I hate Laurent…with a passion. If he’s supposed to be redeemed later on I can’t imagine what it would take to do so. Really, no kidding, I hate him.
Michelle: Finished Captive Prince and moving to book 2. The plot is too intriguing for me to stop. I do agree with Fabi that finding anything positive about Laurent is beyond difficult but his growth so far is promising. I enjoy how nothing is spelled out but very subtle and read between the lines.
Fabi: Bev, I’m at 80% of Captive Prince. I love it I adore it, I want so more of it. I’ll have to go directly to book 2. I wish I’d read these closer to the release date of book 3. Oh, and I was right. There is a resemblance to Measure of Devotion, one of my all time favorite reads.
MichellleS: Just finished Captive Prince book one and moving right into book two. It was a slow build, but you really got to get the feel of the characters this way. I don’t hate Laurent anymore. I am now intrigued and can’t wait for the “fun” to start.
Fabi: I just finished Captive Prince, and like Michelle, I’m moving straight into Prince’s Gambit.
MichelleS: I finished Captive Prince 2, and I don’t want it to end! When is this book three coming out anyway? Wah! Things just got crazy good. What now? I hate leaving a great world behind. Ugh. P.S. Love this series. Definitely reading book three.
Michelle: I can barely wait for Captive Prince on Tuesday! I hope, I hope the trilogy finishes up on a high note……. Fingers crossed!
About book #1:
Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the rightful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity, and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.
Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country.
For Damen, there is just one rule: never, ever reveal his true identity. Because the one man Damen needs is the one man who has more reason to hate him than anyone else . . .
