Once upon a time,
there was a wholesome young princess
who ruled her kingdom in grace and purity…
This isn’t that story.
Octavia is a naughty, snarky, young princess that is always looking for a good time. But, in a single night, a greedy, bloodthirsty enemy changes her world forever.
Now that she’s in control, the rebellious princess is trying to escape the terrors of her past by becoming the Queen of Pleasure. Decadence and debauchery sum up the days in her world, and being the Queen of Pleasure comes with benefits! Her favorite one is having the choice of the fairest gentlemen in the land to be her private “playthings.” All seemed well in her kingdom of pleasurable pain.
Tragedy is about to strike a second time, forcing this hedonistic monarch to embrace her dark past, and to realize the full potential running through her veins. In order to destroy the familiar enemy who once shook her world, she will need to gather those closest to her, and learn to lean on her newest “plaything”…who is not all that he seems.
Blood is sweet, but revenge is sweeter when you’re…The Queen.
This book is not for the faint of heart or prudish. Packed with explicit scenes it’s not recommended for anyone under 18.
Princess Octavia, while young is not innocent at all and she thoroughly enjoys her fantasies.
To be honest I fell in love with her bodyguard/caretaker Klyn he is truly someone to be reckoned with. It’s because of him the Princess survives to become Queen.
Octavia is a good ruler, and she has her quirks but she is also always a bit fearful the Carpe Noctem would return and destroy all she has rebuilt.
Her ‘gentlemen’ satisfy her needs and she adds to them periodically. But strange things start happening and the suspense builds.
A bit of a cliffhanger with extreme heat, interesting characters and a bit dark. It’s not clear if this is going to be a trilogy or more of a series, but I do hope we don’t have to wait very long for the next book.
