Princess Ava uses indifference as a mask to hide her feelings and her need for her father's approval. Security expert J. Wolfe has seen first hand - in his parents marriage - the devastating side of love. Ava is looking for love and marriage. Wolfe likes his affairs short and simple. You can't find two persons more different.
Their first encounter is funny. The banter between these two strong headed is witty and fun to read. Wolfe ruffles Ava's regal feathers but she gives as good as sh
I will agree with another reviewer. Did not like heroine's previous boyfriend was 20 years older than her. She was too sophisticated for me and and even cold at some parts.
Nicely written but I did not care for the heroine.
Did not like her previous boyfriend was 20 years older than her either. She was too sophisticated for me.
Duty At What Cost is a good book. Ava is a really level headed, not into living the princess lifestyle lady. While Wolfe is a love jaded millionaire/bodyguard. Together they but heads and have great chemistry, and find what they are really looking for in life.

Ava had to attend the wedding of her ex-fiancee. It wasn’t a hardship – she and Gilles had been friends all their lives and they’d never really had a relationship. It was just assumed they’d marry someday, but he found someone to love – and that meant Ava had to pretend she was putting on a brave face, even if she was secretly thrilled for her old friend. If she had to be completely truthful, she was also a little jealous that he’d found the thing she never ha

Sparks fly when Princess Ava de Veers and James Wolfe meet. The chemistry is so strong that it's no surprise the princess and the warrior had a passionate one night. But when Ava is suddenly in line for the throne, she must abandon the life she has created for herself, and Wolfe must protect her while she hunts for a suitable husband.

I enjoyed the banter between Ava and Wolfe. One might think the sophisticated lady and the "uncultured beast" are polar opposites, but they are, in fact, very simi
Amé esta historia. Simplemente perfecta.
Fue muy bueno, es fácil y entretenida de leer tiene contenido +18 y es realmente genial, lo recomiendo para una fácil lectura.
Duty At What Cost? by Michelle Conder was a very good book. Some tried to kill Ava. Someone did kill her brother. Now she will be Princess of her country. Wolfe is hired to protect Ava. They fall in love but fight it.

Excellent story from Michelle Conder! An absolute delight to read. I adored Ava, found Wolfe sexy as hell and their quippy banter and sizzling attraction kept the pages turning. Definitely a keeper!
