Overview

It’s not easy being the son of evil incarnate…

Hunter Teague is the prince of the Unseelie Court, the dark half of Faerie. Raised in an atmosphere of unspeakable cruelty, Hunter has learned the lessons of his mother, the Queen of Air and Darkness, and he’s ready to put them to use. He’s on a mission, one that will shift the balance of power in Faerie forever: he will seduce the Seelie king’s mortal daughter and sire a child upon her—a child who will be heir to both the Seelie and the Unseelie thrones. Hunter has never met a mortal woman he couldn’t seduce...until now.

Kiera Malone is a self-employed web designer and a self-professed cynic. She doesn’t believe in magic or soulmates, let alone her mother’s ridiculous claims to have slept with the mythical Faerie King. But when Hunter hires her to design a website, Kiera finds herself drawn to him in ways that seem almost magical. He’s gorgeous and sexy as sin, the kind of man any woman would swoon over—but her every instinct warns her there’s something dangerous lurking beneath his charming façade.

To succeed in his mission, Hunter must let himself get closer to Kiera than he ever planned. Soon, he finds himself burdened with the one thing a prince of the Unseelie Court can’t afford: a conscience. Now Hunter must betray either the woman who is slowly working her way into his heart, or the Queen of Air and Darkness...who would destroy him and Kiera both.

Editorial Reviews

Cathy Thilmany
Jenna Black has written a very steamy story with a great deal of sexual tension.
Pamela Lynne
If you want a paranormal packed with tons of sexual tension, a hot alpha male, a sassy and independent heroine, and lots of action, look no further than Jenna Black's PRINCE OF AIR AND DARKNESS. It contains all of those things and so much more. In the past, I have not been a big fan of the all things fey, but I must admit, Ms. Black puts a whole new spin on faeries and the world they live in. It did not take long for me to find myself completely absorbed in PRINCE OF AIR AND DARKNESS. I was lite
Tanya Contois
There was no shortage of excitement or twists and turns so be prepared to read a book that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

Meet the Author

Jenna Black got her BA in physical anthropology and French from Duke University. Once upon a time, she dreamed she would be the next Jane Goodall, camping in the bush making fabulous discoveries about primate behavior. Then, during her senior year at Duke, she did some actual research in the field and made this shocking discovery: primates spend something like eighty percent of their time doing such exciting things as sleeping and eating.

Concluding that this discovery was her life's work in the field of primatology, she then moved on to such varied pastimes as grooming dogs and writing technical documentation. She is now a full-time writer and lives in North Carolina

I recommend this book. I loved the main characters and all the trials they had to overcome in order to be together happily. Hunter did some bad crap but he paid for it too, and Kiera was able to be open minded enough to accept the truth about herself and others around her. The plot was unique and I am curious to see what else this author writes next.

I love the Nikki Glass stories, so I had high hopes for this story. It turned out to be just another romance novel with a little urban fantasy thrown in for fun. The story had no depth and while the characters started out with potential, they never went beyond it to become something truly special.

She hid her insecurities behind an aggressively witchy attitude and was a brat to every single person in her life from her mother to her best friend to her love interest. She ruined the story for me. Other than that it was a good read. The other characters were great. The action was entertaining. The writinh was well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a sexy, steamy world that I could not get enough of. Prince of Air and Darkness started out as a bit of free reading on the Author's website while bored at work, then once I got to the steamy scenes, I had to call it quits. (No one wants someone else to walk into their cubicle as a somewhat inappropriate word crosses into their field of vision.) I planned to read at home but forgot. Finally, when I got back to it, I was saddened to see that it was now being sold, and on Kindle (I have a Nook and hate doing all the wierd app computer thingys.) Finally, when I got my iPhone, I decided, why not have both apps on there, and then I can read on the go at times when I cant bring my nook along. I did and immediately bought and read this book. I am not sorry for that decision. The story follows Hunter Teague, son of the Queen of Air and Darkness of the Unseelie court. His task is to impregnate the Seelie King's mortal daughter, Kiera Malone. I loved me some Hunter. There's something about a sexy anamalistic man that I just love, and with a name like Hunter, how could you not resist? He knows how to seduce a woman and is just all around sexy!!! I wanted him to be real. Yes, I agree, he's horrible for trying to get into Kiera's bed, but still, how many men do you know that don't want to get into a woman's bed. Therefore, I still love him. Kiera is a great character. She is even headed and firm, but a bit stubborn. I loved her. She was relatable and an even match for Mr. Teague. She definitely gave him a run for his money. I also loved the supporting characters. Jackson - the gay best friend, Kiera's Mother, and even the goblin Bane gave me a lot of variation and fun when reading this book.It was great. The story line wasn't too predictable. Although at times I knew what would happen because there was just NO other way to get around it, the author put in just the right amount of twists and turns to make it interesting. I wont tell you what happened in the end, but lets just say I wasnt frustrated. I would give this book 4 stars. It was a great read. I had a few issues with the lateness of the decision for the conclusion, and a few solutions in the middle, but on the whole, it was enjoyable.

Jenna Black and fae. It should've been match ... except it wasn't. Weak story and her YA Faeriewalker series hints of far more compelling romance. Couldn't finish even as a sick day read.
