I need to collect my long, lost inheritance!), and her being rather lovely, if it weren't for those pesky men harassing her, so she ashes up her face to look like a leper and men are teh scarez o ...more

All but Tatiana survived because she was sent away.
Tanya had a terrible life. The people who took her in as a baby owned a tavern and treated her like ...more
I read the 2nd book before I picked up this and only convinced myself that I want to read this today, this morning. It was like a Cinderella story with a transcontinental setting and a Prince (or King) UnCharming.
The hero, Stephen is one angry man. So, generally you don't find a HR hero who has anger management issues (to the point of being dangerous and borderline ab ...more

I had 2 books available to me at the library and I was deciding between this book and the other. I'm glad I picked this one. I can't even remember the other book's name.
The plot here is pretty simple: a princess, the last in line to the royal throne, has been betrothed since infancy to the crown prince - whose ...more
Damaged, consistently insulting Stefan sets out to find the girl he was betrothed to as a child. He isn't looking forward to the reunion, especially after it becomes clear that his future wife might not have been gently reared. In ...more
This book is just a huge chunk of meh with some minor enjoyable parts.
Anyway, why on Earth would the heroine think the royal gentlemen who came for her were playing some sort of diabolical game with her? And why would she let them think her to be a whore then get all frustrated because of them looking down on her? And why the heck would the hero fall for such a boring and childish lady? And why would the two leads even share the love??? I.felt.absolutely.nothing.
And why, pray tell, can't ...more
I'm not much of an old-skool romance reader but occasionally I want to understand where the genre came from and how it evolved. On top of that I heard Sarah Wendell rave about it on one of the DBSA podcasts. Well let me say it turned me off of old skool for awhile and this is from the girl who loved "The Flame and the Flower"
Tatiana is a barmaid...an abused barmaid. She's tantalizingly beautiful but dresses herself as the old hag unless ...more

He didn't budge. "It would be a misconception on your part, little Tanya, if you are thinking I have to be angry to make love to you." His head bent, his lips grazing her cheek all the way to her ear. With his warm breath sending tingles all over her, he continued in a whisper, "I wanted you last night, today a dozen times, right now more than ever. Tell me to love you, Tanya. Demand it of me!”
"What was that?"
"I Want You.”
