#103: If You Dare by Kresley Cole

With If You Dare, Cole introduces a thrilling new romance trilogy featuring fierce Scottish brothers with dangerous lives, dark desires, and a deadly curse.
Can he exact revenge?
 
High in the Pyrenees, a band of mercenaries led by Courtland MacCarrick wages war for General Reynaldo Pascal. When Court turns on the evil general, Pascal orders him killed but Court narrowly escapes and exacts revenge by kidnapping Pascal's exquisite Castilian fiancée. 
Can she deny her passions? 
Lady Annalía Tristán Llorente despises her towering, barbaric captor almost as much as she does Pascal. Her inexplicable attraction to the Highlander only fuels her fury. But nothing will stop her from returning to Pascal -- for if she doesn't wed him, she signs her brother's death warrant, as well as her own. 
Can there be love between them? 
From the moment Court discovers that Anna's prim façade masks a fiery, brave lass, his heart's ensnared, and he dares to defy the curse that has shadowed his life -- to walk with death or walk alone. But Pascal vows that he'll hunt the two, never stopping until he's destroyed them both.

REVIEW:
Steamy!
Like fog up the computer screen kinda steamy. The chemistry between Anna and Court, you can totally see why they are fated.
I also appreciated the realness of the story. I an honestly say that this is the first book I've ever read where the virgin losing her virginity does not have such a good time. That's realistic, since the first time is not very pleasant. Usually romance novels keep it fluffy and I hate that.
Being a fan of Kresley Cole's vampire story and another romance I read, I had a feeling that I might like this one too. It's her writing that I enjoy. Such an ease of flow that keeps you reading, no matter the plot or setting.
Lots of romance fans will eat this one right up! Has the hot couple with opposites attracting, some action and super graphic x-rated action, and even a 'happily-ever-after'. What could be better than that?!

4/5

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
