Kindle Edition, 273 pages
Published August 6th 2011
An elven prince without a throne.
A mortal woman without hope, stolen from her own world to fulfill his every desire.
A choice of love and death that could bind them together forever.
Some people believe that beneath our own world, separated only by a thin veil of human disbelief, there is another one – an ancient land of myths and legends, a place where magical creatures dwell. What would happen if one of them walked the streets of London at night?
Once a proud warrior, elven prince Elathan was living in exile, fallen from grace and separated from his own people. He wanted the mortal woman the moment he saw her standing on Blackfriars Bridge, staring down into the darkness with unbearable pain in her eyes. This strangely compelling female also happened to have luscious curves that made his body ache with desire.
Naturally, he decided to hunt the woman down, drag her to his lair and command her to become his slave of pleasure. But would her frail human body survive a night of untamed passion in the arms of a Fae?
After a devastating breakup with her fiancé, Igraine Chandler was spending her honeymoon in England all by herself, her life utterly bereft of meaning. For who could ever love a plain, slightly overweight nurse from New Jersey with nothing left but a broken heart and her lost dreams of a home and a family?
But she never imagined that she would soon set out into a world beyond her wildest dreams, and help a prince reclaim his throne …
Set in a medieval fantasy world of noble knights, monsters and magicians, honor, betrayal and revenge, “Bound to the Prince” is a romance influenced by Celtic mythology and Arthurian legends. But in its heart, it’s a story of a woman’s inner development to a new, strong, self; uninhibited desire, boundless love, loss and sacrifice.
My rating 5/5
This story was really intense, funny, entertaining and incredibly hot! What more can I say? I really should get a kindle…This book would have follow me everywhere I go if I had one… Some scenes give me shivers. This book was one of the best I read this year so far. I’ve been totally throw into a fantastic, magical and steamy world and I love it! This book mix some old Midsummer Night Dream by Shakespear and bright new Paranormal Romance by the author herself : Deborah Court. A Good mix that will bring you into two differents realms :Human and Elven.
I love the introduction : at first, the author will take you to the Elven realms by introducing Elathan, the Elven Prince. We will learn more about is childhood and his warrior life, then why he’s exiled. Then, you will know about Igraine who live in Human realm. She had her heart broken by a bastard and she willing to end her own life because she think she's worthless.
I really enjoy the abduction of Igraine by Elathan. At first we’re not sur if Elathan want to hurt or not Igraine and his intentions are pretty mysterious and unpredictables (even if we all know somehow that he will not hurt her!). Elathan want Igraine as his personnal slave, a slave of pleasure! (OH YES)… You would wish that Elathan's abducted you! The sex scenes aren’t over exploited and they are well described. We almost feel like we are there with them at some point! And I truly wish I could be Igraine at that time! Elathan seems to be a great lover!
All the adventure, training, the characters, the details are mix it up to create a strong story that wont be easy to let go. The writing of Deborah Court is truthful sweet and almost noble. Reading this books was a true pleasure and to be honest I’m eager to read the next on the series. This was really my kind of reading. I love strong, handsome, sexy male characters and Elathan his the perfect man (or more elf) that fit well in my criteria!
Igraine who though that she wasn’t worth living will discovered that she’s a pretty strong, kick-ass woman. She will fall more in love with the man than with the fact that Elathan is an elf or a prince. She will teach him more about love, respect and courage in some way.
I didn’t expect that kind of ending, OMG. I love to be suprised! And it’s really appreciated from the author : it’s not the conventional end or happy ending and that’s ok with me. The author know how to keep the reader into a bubble of captivation. In the last chapters, everything is going so fast and seem so sureal. I even have to re-read them to be sur I didn’t miss something… I would like to know more about it in the next book!
Deborah Court is an original and fantastic author that you have to keep an eye on. Looking forward for the entire trilogy!
Oh BTW I was impress by this cover: my eyes are automatic drawn to this picture. The colors on the cover have been rightfully choosen and well applied! And the Elven prince... Mmmm I wouldn't be able to resist that kind of man!
