Dark Prince, Heed Thy Queen – Reviews


 Kirkus Featured Review July 2015- Indie

Prolific eroticist K (Honey B., Sexual Consultant, 2014, etc.) conjures a fictionalized wet dream starring a hyper sexualized woman and the domineering hoodlum who sexually enslaves her.

K’s latest is a titillating and highly provocative tinderbox, conflating taboo themes of hierarchal subservience, gender domination, and eroticized objectification.

Though the mysterious, unnamed raconteur of this erotica describes herself as an ordinary woman, she’s really an experienced physician who exudes “a sensation of calm, a sense of security.” She’s swept away by a cocksure, bearded, “dense and dreamy” stranger named Nathan, whose livelihood includes larceny…. K’s novella, easily read in one heated sitting, glosses over plot in favor of the sexual exploits between the narrator and Nathan as their relationship intensifies to incorporate kink and sadomasochism. Nathan is slowly revealed to be a crestfallen attorney and military serviceman–turned-criminal, but that hardly deters the narrator from pursuing him. Their respective appetites for carnal satisfaction seem infinite; any opportunity for role-playing and sexual adventure is met with agreement, including the addition of Jo, Nathan’s sexy “surrogate,” to their lovemaking. The book consists of short vignettes that ultimately blur into a carnal cacophony of three-ways, safe words, penis rings, and jail bailouts, as the narrator who “wanted a bad boy and got one” swiftly becomes rapt and ultimately enamored by Nathan’s sexual bravado. Readers of graphic erotic fiction will appreciate K’s smooth delivery of unbridled passion coupled with introspective ponderings in which the veil lifts to reveal her protagonist’s true nature. This aspect elevates the narrative from one-note fantasy to an explicitly personal chronicle complete with a surprise ending. Although the ever reliable narrator spends most of her time being bossed around and used like a Fifty Shades sex toy, the story is very much owned and operated by her. “I didn’t want somebody to love,” she unapologetically confesses. “It was more selfish than that, I wanted somebody to enjoy my body with me.”

K’s latest is a titillating and highly provocative tinderbox, conflating taboo themes of hierarchal subservience, gender domination, and eroticized objectification.


Kathleen K has again crafted a savory banquet for those readers (and practitioners) of uninhibited sexual freedom. Kind of like the satisfaction of a fine brandy, or a decadent chocolate mousse after a gourmet meal, her words leave the libido sated – but wishing for more.

“Stand up for me; I’ll want to see all of you.”

“I bought this gown just for tonight; I hope you’ll rip it off me.”

“I don’t think I will. I’ll get you to rip it off yourself.”

“That would be interesting.”

“Yes, it will.”

And, she did. And it was.

“Dark Prince, Heed Thy Queen” is Kathleen’s latest romp through the sexual life of a couple who enjoy the act of sex as one of the under-rated pleasures in life, freeing the spirit and the body, satisfying the soul.

I can’t say I’ve ever read a book quite like this one. It’s almost like a stream of conscious narrative, but it’s poetic in a way. The characters feel no inhibitions about their bodies or love life. It’s an interesting dynamic and I’m surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**
