After seven hundred years, Prince has acquired everything a Packmaster could desire. But when he meets the enchanting Nadia Kozlov, he realizes there’s one thing he doesn’t have: answers. Prince owes his life to a man he hasn’t seen in centuries, and Nadia holds the key to his whereabouts, because that man is her father.
Destinies collide when Nadia’s sister shows up unexpectedly. Katarina is a skilled bounty hunter, hot on the trail of a nefarious outlaw who turns out to be Prince’s old nemesis. Prince teams up with Nadia’s sister to track down the Mage, but the real game of cat and mouse is already underway as sparks fly between Prince and the cunning bounty hunter.
The only trouble? Nadia wants him too.
Last year I devoured the Seven series by Dannika Dark, and have begun picking up the novellas to this series. Charming is a full-length standalone novel set in the world, and I decided to listen to Nicole Poole’s narration. Charming delivered a suspenseful tale, filled with mystery, a delightful romance and a touch of snark.
Prince is a character we met in the Seven series and one I wasn’t particularly fond of, but Dark has a way of changing your mind, so I grabbed my earbuds and listened.
Dark begins by giving us some details regarding Prince’s history as she introduces Nadia the daughter of someone Prince owes an enormous debt. From the onset, I disliked Nadia. She was bitchy, arrogant and way too high maintenance for my tastes. Fortunately her twin sister Kat showed up unexpectedly and was my kind of bestie.
Nadia and Kat’s father once saved Prince’s life, and until now Prince thought him dead. Up until ten years ago he had survived and rebuilt his pack. Nadia believes her father to be dead, but Kat is trusting her instincts and believes her father is alive and in trouble. Kat is a bounty hunter and has spent the last ten years chasing a Mage she believes is holding her father. When Prince discovers the Mage is an old nemesis, he decides to assist Kat. The tale that unfolds was addictive as Prince finds himself falling for Kat, which is a bit awkward since he asked Nadia out first. Oops.
I loved listening to this tale. Poole has the perfect voice for Dark’s tales, and her large range of voices and accents brought the story to life. From the Russian accents to playful tones of the characters personalities, actions and the stories suspenseful overtones popped to life in vivid 3-D.
The title is absolutely perfect, and I laughed when the reason was revealed. Kat’s foodgasms to her teasing banter with Prince had me grinning like a fool. Prince is very formal and reserved so it was fun seeing Kat wholly unman him. These two Alphas tango and it resulted in a delicious, suspenseful tale that I devoured in a single listen.
