Book Review: If You Dare by: Kresley Cole (RAT3)

Summary: 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 fiancee. Lady Annlia Tristan 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. From the moment Court discovers that Anna’s prim facade masks a fiery, brave lass, his heart’s ensnared, and he dares to defy the curse that had 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.

I am so utterly disappointed by this book I LOVE Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series, but this series, OMG, I can’t even keep reading the first book, and I have read some bad books. The plot line seems forced, not only is an evil general after the two lead character but the lead male is cursed and the lead female doesn’t like him. Oh wait, after about half way through the book, she immediately and very oddly changes her mind after staying with him in the same bed overnight, drunk, at that. I haven’t even begun on the other plot lines, it completely ridiculous. I like a good highlander romance story as well as the next girl but I am sorry to say, with this book, I have lost like 4 hours of my life that will never return, and I was only half way through the book when I stopped.

I give this book 1/5 stars. ★


  1. This is the first book of Kresley Cole that I've read. I wanted to try Kresley Cole's book since she seems to be very popular. After reading this book, I avoided Kresley Cole like the plague!!

  2. OMG. Don't!! The Immortals After Dark Series (book 1 is: A Hunger Like No Other) is AMAZING. I adore it, you definitely shouldn't give up on her from this one book.
