The Nymph King (Gena Showalter's Atlantis Series #3) by Gena Showalter

Females young and old, beautiful and plain crave Valerian's touch. None can resist his blatant sensuality and potent allure…until he steals Shaye Holling from a Florida beach and holds her prisoner in his underwater kingdom.

The cynical Shaye wants nothing to do with the mighty warlord, but she's inexplicably drawn to him. For underneath the warrior's arrogant beauty lies a complex and powerful man. A man whose caress is like fire…

Now Valerian must fight for the privilege of claiming her as his own. Because there's one thing Shaye doesn't know.…

That when a nymph discovers his true mate, she's his for life.

If you need a great action packed run of the mill romance novel don't pick this one up. This book keeps you glued to the pages with the hot sex scenes and loveable and relatable characters. A must read. Just wish the first two were still in print. A great collection to any romance reader.

Oh, Valerian! You make my heart sing...literally. I picked up this book first, not realizing it was part of a series. I saw the word "Nymph" and had to know more. Now if I could just find that portal to Atlantis, then I'd be set!! Each book was fabulously written and hot, sexy, hot!! The Nymph characters are captivating, strong and always half-dressed. *Swoon* Way to keep me up till sunrise again Gena! I love this series...

Shaye Holling thanks her mother for her successful Anti-cards business that centers on the concept of love, if it even exists, is evanescent ending before it can begin forget that hokey ever after fairy tale junk. Shaye does not even blink though she is a bit stunned as mom invites her to attend wedding number six.-------------- The King of the Nymphs Valerian and his men attend the ceremony seeking women to take back to Atlantis to mate with his male horde. When his species fail to have sexual gratification, they turn feeble and pathetic he knows first hand how that feels. Most of the women at the wedding including mom agree to go back to Atlantis with the nymphs, who have cast a web of romance on all the women except Shaye and one other female guest who refuse. Valerian will not accept Shaye¿s rejection, but before battling this human anti-romantic, he must fight against his best warriors for the right to pursue her as she is the key to winning an upcoming battle that if lost could destroy Atlantis.-------------- Readers will have to adapt to male warrior hunks as nymphs, but Gena Showalter makes them seem real as does Atlantis, dragons, and vampires, oh my. The story line is fast-paced and oceans deep as Valerian and Shaye battle over whether love exists. Romantic fantasy fans already know Ms. Showalter always provides a winner (see THE STONE PRINCE) her latest is no exception.------------- Harriet Klausner

I just completed reading the "Nymph King" by Gena Showalter and I thought that it was really good. The beginning started off kind of dicey but it ended up being a really good story. I know that there are 2 other books that proceed this one but, I doubt they were as good as this one. There was a sweet tenderness to this novel that I was a little surprised to read. In the book there are really good moments of sweetness, tenderness, caring and sacrifice. A lot of heroics and some really good action scenes. There were some elements of the book that found just a little far-fetched (Vampires, Dragons, and Demons in the city of Atlantis). It is a work of fiction so I had to really let my imagination take over. I would recommend this book.

I wanted to like this book, but to be honest I couldn't even finish it! While reading it the main female was complaining the entire time. This story had GREAT potential but you are left very unsatisfied with all the whining from the leading lady.

I loved this book. It is my favorite book in the Atlantis Series by Gena Showalter. Valerian and Shay are so cute and I love that she does try to not fall into bed with him right away. It is fun to read about him trying to seduce her and to see their relationship evolve. Very fun book that you can read over and over again.

I read her "Lords of the Underworld" series first and fell in love with her characters and writing style, so naturally I had to read this series. Her take on Atlantis is different then I have read before and I am looking for more from this series.

I love all of Gena Showalter's books, but this one is my all time favorite!!! I just can't stop reading it, the way that Valerian falls for her in an instant and fights for her the whole way is brilliantly written and Shay is like an normal woman in the 21st century!!! The use of characters is perfect! Outstanding and very SEXY!!!!!

the nymph king is one of Gena showalter's best! Valerian (king of the nymphs) is one sexy king, only one problem when he spots Shaye holling and takes her to his underwater kingdom she is determined to resist him. But can she? valerian is dead set on making her his mate and what shaye doesn't know, when a nymph finds his mate, it's for life.

THE NYMPH KING is Gena Showalter at her best. I absolutely love this series. It&rsquo;s got everything you&rsquo;ve come to expect from Gena &ndash; sexy alpha males, strong females, and off-the-charts sex and romance! Off all her characters, Valerian is one of my all-time favorites. He makes me wish Avalon was real because I&rsquo;d probably swim there to meet him. Everyone wants him except the one woman he desires - Shaye Holling. After he steals her off a beach and takes her to Atlantis, all she can think about is returning to Florida. Gena created a beautiful backdrop for this book. Valerian&rsquo;s underwater palace is amazing. And, although the romance is non-stop, so is the action. I really don&rsquo;t have anything negative to say about this book. It&rsquo;s my favorite in the whole Atlantis series. Anyone who likes to read about adult paranormal romance, Atlantis, mythology retellings, or just sexy alpha males will fall in love with this book.
