    1. I was so excited about this book when I read the blurb and few reviews. I wanted to jump into what seemed at the time awesome story. But sadly I was disappointed. To be honest I skimmed the whole book and even dropped it almost at the end. I couldn't stand Shaye and her reason was a too weak one to excuse her behaviour towards a man who truly cared for her. I mean, I get you'd be ticked off when someone took you agains your will and threw you into a whole new, to you alien, word. But there has t [...]


    2. Intrigued by the "myth" of Atlantis? Always wanted to know more about nymphs? Dying to read a book with a heroine who manages fairly well to resist an irresistible hero?Then you would love this book. Valerian is the Nymph King, irresistible to all womenkind. I was prepared to dislike Valerian, considering that he starts the book in bed with not one or two women, but three. The sneer arose on my lips at this point, yet I still kept reading. This woman is a good writer. She held my attention, and [...]



    3. You guys where looking for something ORIGINAL? Well you've found it!!!This is a great series, very entreating, and I just wanna read more and more. I never thought I would like it so much as the ratings of it are a bit low, but IMHO this series is totally worth to be read.In this installment we get to read about a totally new supernatural species to me, the Nymphs. They are a species that needs sex to stay strong, and one of the fiercest of them all. They are also mostly men; powerful-strong-hot [...]


    4. This is a random book I picked up - not based on the cover, that's for sure - and bought out of boredom. So I was pleasantly surprised by its humour, sauciness and the great chemistry between many of the characters. I've always been wary of books that throw up the Atlantis thing, but I didn't mind it all here. It was fun, and racy, and (because this often comes up), Shaye didn't annoy me. I understood her, so her stubborness made sense, and helped create some sizzling sexual tension. Valerian wa [...]


    5. This was a good story. I really liked the chemistry between Valerian and Shaye. I also liked that there were 2 different love interests in this story. The other was between Joachim and Brenna had a story within this main story. I like that. I think I liked this story the best so far. I am moving on to The Vampire's Bride which is Layel's story. I already have a soft spot for Layel, so I'm excited to start his book.


    6. I was pretty excited to read this book in the Atlantis Series. Everything mentioned previously in the series describes the nymphs as the strongest warriors in Atlantis although they are the most laid back. They won't bother you if you don't bother them first. Valerian, King of the Nymphs, has led his army to capture a castle from the dragons. To retaliate the dragons stole the nymph females. Valerian's men are getting antsy and weak because even though Valerian is still getting sex to keep his s [...]


    7. Sorry, Gena Showalter. Stokholm Syndrome isn't sexy.The plot of "The Nymph King" (or any other Gena Showalter book) is essentially a porno. Valerian, the unbelievably sexy Nymph King (nymphs are basically sex addicts) kidnaps Shaye, a young, cynical woman who wants nothing to do with love. He drags her to Atlantis and basically tells her that he will have sex with her no matter how much she says no (um rape much?). I'm assuming that in te context of a romance novel this seems sexy, but in realit [...]


    8. Buddy read with Maru.Quotes:“Do you like the palace?” he asked again.She hesitated before saying, “I’ll be honest. Your home…the walls, remind me of you.”Our home, little moonbeam, our home. “Thank you.”Frowning, she slapped at his hand, trying to force him to release his hold. “That wasn’t a compliment.”“Being told pictures of sex make you think of me is not a compliment?”Her mouth fell open, but she snapped it closed. “That’s not how I meant it, and you know it. [...]


    9. Valerin wakes up post orgy tangled in 3 sleeping women; one for each hair color of course. He had tried to selflessly pimp them on his soldiers, for you see nymphs need sex for survival. But the soldiers' manslut karate is no match for V's kung fu. So they ignored the other perfect (if slightly worn hunks) and all 3 threw themselves at him in tandem. When the Nymph army had set off for their latest exploit, he ordered all the women stay behind, it was too dangerous and they wouldn't be gone long [...]


    10. WOWI loved this! This book was incredibly sexual and I really did laugh out loud at some of the antics. You have got to respect a writer that can take a race of promiscuous sex addicts and make them desirable to the average girl. Be warned though, this book has some VERY hot love scenes - do not read it on a train fact make sure you are safely at home to save your embarassment!Valerian is a warrior and king of the Nymphs. He is so handsome it hurts and NO woman can resist him. He literally needs [...]


    11. A friend who thought I needed a laugh lent me this one. Laugh? boy did I ever. It's SUCH a stereotypical erotica. We've got no plot (though a little is thrown in near the end), some purple prose and questionable grammar, and exaggerated and conformist gender roles. Hello strong warrior man who knows nothing of love but is ACTUALLY totally misunderstood and needs to civilizing influence of a woman. Greetings healer woman who has daddy issues/mommy issues/abusive ex-boyfriend issues, and needs a s [...]


    12. With this third installment in the Atlantis series, I was curiously anticipating a story involving a race of creatures that aren't known for monogamy and require sex to survive. It was fascinating getting her idea of dragons and then a book that pulled a little from all the races in Atlantis, but now it zeroed in on the Nymphs who were briefly mentioned in the other books. I was ready to be intrigued yet again.This was one of those stories that teetered on the edge of like/dislike for me. I hone [...]


    13. ★★★☆ I liked itO'oh. This series started so good but has kept dropping from there. I expected this to be a fantastic book focussing on the impending war between the nymphs and dragons, with a love story of course. Instead, we just get a sex-crazed King who won't stop until he gets what he wants. Sex, sex, sex. It's pretty much all that happens (or is thought about). Even the "war" was lacklustre. Shaye is meant to be his mate but he seems to just want to have sex with her for the rest of [...]


    14. El es tercer libro de la serie Atlantis. Aunque no es necesario, recomiendo leer primero Heart of the Dragon (Corazón de Dragón) y Jewel of Atlantis.Esta vez el protagonista llamado Valerian es un hombre de la raza de los Ninfas, mas específicamente, el Rey de todos ellos. Los ninfas son una raza puramente sexual, pues de este acto obtienen fuerza. No hay mujer (y algunos hombres) que puedan resistirse a su encanto. Simplemente caen como esclavas, y son adentradas a un mundo de placer sin igu [...]


    15. I was really shocked at how much I disliked this book, as I've loved everything else Ms. Showalter has written.The lead character is controlling, abusive, narcissistic, and he ABDUCTS his "mate" who assaults him physically to try to escape. I got 1/3 through the novel and was horrified at the control he was using against her, and words like "obeying" etc. It was just a horror. Her attempts to survive and go back to her life are called "stubbornness", which implies he knows what is best for her, [...]


    16. This is my second book by the author. I first read The Darkest Kiss which I don't like at all. I don't even remember what the story was aboutDue to that awful first time, I was ready to not like this too. I was surprised by how much I love this one! It is most definitely better than The Darkest Kiss by miles. It's just funny and sexy and so, so seductive without being lurid or crude. Now I only wish that I had read the first two of the Atlantis series because I'm a sucker for reading serial book [...]


    17. A fairly typical Showalter romance novel. Lots of smut in this one; not really much of a plot persey. But it delivers enough to make me read to the end. One thing I wish Showalter did with these books is that we got to see more of our past characters (the women in particular) that cross with the new characters being introduced. But I hope that comes later in the series. This is only book 3 after all.


    18. Amazing, I think I may just love this one more then the first,I know I love it more then the second. I like how the leading lady (Shaye) didn't just give up and swoon like all the other chicks, she had strength and power. She was her own self, and I liked how Valerian didn't give up on her. I loved this book, really loved this book. But one thing bothers me, why are all the lead females virgins???


    19. Valerian, king of the Nymphs, has never had to work at getting a woman, but he has to work for Shaye, a human and his mate. I love it!! Not even Poseidon can interfere. A good continuation of the Atlantis series. She is untouched by any man until him, and he has bedded anything that came near him for centuries. Complete opposites, but very compatible in all ways. Great read!!


    20. Okay, I really liked this book, but the heroine irritated me alot. But the actual storyline was awesome! and so was the plot, other characters, and it fits in really well with the other Atlantis books, but you don't have to read them in order to understand it. I would fully recommend it to anyone who wants a great read they can't put down with a super hot HOT nymph king as the hero!


    21. This book was funny! There is a paranormal theme, i.e the lost city of Atlantis and all that that impliesdragons, vampires, centaurs, the greek god poseidon and others.The title was awful and I thoughtick, but someone suggested it to me and I'm so glad they did. I laughed through this book. This author has a wonderful sense of humor.




    22. What can I say about this book except that it is the best one yet. I love it when a series gets better as it goes along and this is definitely the case here.This series was recommended by a friend on a yahoo book group. So I tried it. I was definitely intrigued by the first two books though admittedly not super impressed. I had never read anything by the author but was willing to continue with the series. I'm so glad I did.The Nymph King is the best of the series yet. Valerian oozes sexual allur [...]


    23. The Nymph King was classic Gena Showalter in that it was funny, sexy, fast-paced and unput-downable! Her characters are so interesting and original in every single book and this quality just continues to thrill and astound me. Of course Valerian and Shaye are no exception.Shaye is just an average girl living on good ol’ planet earth attending her mom’s sixth wedding to Mr. Perfect, irritated that she’s away from her anti-card business, and being her usual caustic self when anyone tries to [...]


    24. I'm really enjoying this series. It's sexy, sweet, and action-packed. As an unrelated aside, this might be my favorite cover in the group. I think it's the guy's stomach. Or the watery overtones. Either way niiiice.Things I found amusing: Valerian is a total man-whore. Sure, it's a pitfall of being a member of a universally irresistable species, but the guy opens the book in bed with three women. Three. Not two. Three. I'm totally down with that, btw. Way to go, man-whore! It's a given among the [...]


    25. i got this (as well as Jewel of atlantis) for xmas and had read The Vampire King (layels story) before and liked it but had read a snippet of this one and was hooked i really wanted to read this one next (though out of sequence it doesnt seem to affect the story which i like) and was as good as i thought i loved the passion and chemistry between valerian and shaye you could Fell it emulating from the book from the moment ya met d yes he is an arrogant cocky guy whos unbelievebly good looking bu [...]


    26. *Contains detailed sex scenes*This series is oh so good. It’s so hot and steamy and yet not in a weird way. There’s always so much chemistry between the two main characters and you just know they’re gonna give into their passion and end up with each other in the end. These books are very sensual and the plotline and story are so captivating.I loved the romance in this book. I thought Shaye’s hard edge nature was so interesting. All she really wanted was someone to need and love her and I [...]


    27. Valerian, raja nymph yg digila-gilai oleh para cewq, akhirnya menemui batunya, setelah bertemu dgn Shaye yg punya usaha anti-card (hmmm menginspirasi gw utk buka usaha ini jg). Namun Shaye gigih menolak pesona Valerian, sampai mencoba kabur berkali-kali. Namun apa daya, maybe krn memang sudah belahan jiwa, akhirnya toh Shaye luluh juga.Bagi para pembaca dibawah usia 21 thn, amat sangat disarankan tidak membaca novel ini. Penggambaran percintaan amat mendetil. Benar-benar extra hot. Dan ada adega [...]
