The second installment in the wonderful series The Call Of Duty, is the very emotional and passionate story of prince Stavros and the snarky Jessica.
Having witnessed first hand how emotions can overpower a strong men, bring him to his knees - His father, the king of Kyonos, has been devastated by his mother death and he nearly brought the country down with him - Prince Stavros keeps a tight control over his feelings. He has a reputation as a playboy and he uses his flirtation as a shiel
Rating 3.5 stars
I agree with others this book was sad and depressing and had a lot internal dialogue but it kind of worked because I like seeing a hero fall in love and in this book we see that plus he was the one doing all the chasing in the end. The heroine had cut herself off emotions and so had the hero but they came alive with each other. Plus the hero saw that it wasn't just duty that mattered love did as well and he chose her.

I actually really enjoyed the story line and the characters. I loved the hero, suave and sophisticated, but underneath it all a bad boy at heart. I loved the heroine. In spite of all the pain that came her way, she still kept it together with such class. I loved the two of them together, especially in the beginning. They had such charisma.

What didn't work for me, were the internal dialogues. They just seemed to go on and on. I kept flipping the pages saying...enough....let's get so

Maisey Yates always,always managed to blow me away with the most highly unlikely plots. This time she did so again,and boy oh boy what a plot she dreamed up for us this time!

I was amazed to learn that a matchmaker could end up with a Prince but hey what girl would not want a Price,castle and a tiara to go with it right ?

Now as perfect as that set up sounds the Prince in question is no angel and he most definitely does not need the" not fit to be a Queen Jessica ", yet she is the one that simply

Loved this book!! So good. Loved both Stavoros and Jessica who were perfect for one another. Stavoros is so sweet, understanding, and loving towards Jessica that it was easy to see why anyone would fall for him, and Jessica fell hard for him, and I don't blame her in the least. And Stavoros was the perfect hero to get Jessica to open up her heart to him and no other man would have done. But just like Stavoros helped Jessica through her fears and getting her to open up again after suffering soem ...more

At His Majesty's Request is a sequel to A Royal World Apart, but can be read as a stand alone.
Jessica is set to the job of finding the perfect wife for Stravos, one who of course can give the prince heirs. Which because of a severe health issue Jessica can not do, even as she comes to realize Stravos is the man of her dreams.

"At His Majesty's Request" is another Harlequin romance focusing on fictional Grecian royalty. Stavros is on the hunt for a princess and has hired renowned matchmaker Jessica to assist in finding qualified candidates - she must be free of scandal, of comparable background, and most importantly, fertile. Jessica, a divorced woman who is still coping with the physical and emotional trauma that ended her marriage, definitely does not fulfill any of these requirements. Nonetheless, the prince and th ...more

Jessica has been hired by Prince Stavros to find him a queen. As Prince Stavros ticks off his list of what's suitable Jessica meets none of the criteria but you know they say opposites attract and boy do opposites attract in Maisey Yate's beautiful tale At His Majesty's Request.

Prince Stavros believes if Jessica can see his world thru his eyes it will help her find him a suitable bride but the more time they spend together the more they wonder if although life has a path and a plan, does fate in

Nice story

I was glad to see this series continued, I really enjoyed the story and how well written it was. I found it realistic and enjoyable.
I found this book very emotional but the protagonists were quite strong. Jessica was one heroine that I will always admire. She was smart, confident, intellectual and independent. What better match for her than a chivalrous prince? I really admired the fact that Stavros did not escape from his duties towards his country unlike his brother. I found the ending quite unique compared to conventional Mills and boon novels. Here, everything doesn't end flawlessly making it like a fairy-tale. Instead t ...more

A quick read ending in a happy sigh— with tears shed in the middle. Now I must read the brother's story!
Jan 05, 2013 Eva rated it it was ok

This book was ok, but wouldn't recommend it. The female protagonist wasn't, IMO, sympathetic. She behaved unprofessionally, secondary characters were introduced and never seen again, and the male protagonist was self-centered and shallow. I wanted to buy into the relationship that was developing between Jessica and Prince Stavros, but it was just too convenient and contrived for me.

Jessica, a professional matchmaker, is trying to find Prince Stavros a wife. But Stavros' attention was caught by Jessica herself. There, the story begins.

I could have given this a 5-star rating if not for the ending. Like all romance novels, they manage to end up together but the ending leaves me hanging. When I reach the end of the page, I was like "What??!! Is that all??"
Brianna (The Book Vixen)
I think this was the first Harlequin Presents book I read, which I read it for the royalty/commoner trope. This was an okay read. I didn't completely like the leads (not that I disliked them). They didn't use a condom, nor was it discussed, which is a pet peeve of mine. And the ending was underwhelming. It could've used an epilogue.
This is a book.

Absolutely stunning premise. For fresh, unforeseen twists, carried out with sensitivity and gut wrenching angst, Maisey takes the cake.

This was a good story I loved Stavros and Jessica's journey to their happily ever after. Stavros just wants to find the prefect wife and uses Jessica to find her but I turns out she is perfect for him even if she does not check off everything on his list. The book progressed well and I loved the ending.

To me this novel was horribly sad in so many ways. I mean the heroine went through some crazy ass bullshit and yes, it did make her stronger but she was given and unfair deal. As for the hero, once he learned the heroines real life story, he seemed to change almost instantly.

I liked the book, but I felt some of the inner monologue and dialogue between the hero and heroine were repetitive (view spoiler).

Really enjoyed reading this story. It was sad but love does conquer all. The end left me wanting more I wanted all of Jessica's dreams to come true. Love Stavros he will make a great King. This book needed a epilogue or the author needs to write a part two.

A satisfying and sizzling read with an emotional punch…I fell in love with Stavros and Jess, laughed and cried with them…held my breath 'til the end. Jess is definitely one of my favorite heroines of all time. And Stavros? xoxoxo
