You Belong to Me (Cardinia's Royal Family #2)
The story goes that they are bound by a supposed prearranged contract between their fathers when they were children to marry. She doesn’t want to lose her independence by getting married and he’s a lothario so getting married is the last thing he wants to do. They are fo...more
This is the basic love-hate, forced betrothal, rake hero, tough heroine type of story. Unlike most HR, this one takes place in Russia and Cardinia (fictional country), yet I loved the characters too much to be turned off from the change in setting. Vasili, aka the peacock (Tatiana and my favorite nickname), aka Petroff as A...more
I read it by the time I was like 13, (five years ago)
and I still remeber almost the whole book,
the story is very entretaining and I *adore* the characters(:
I really liked Once a Princess (first in the series), when I read it I couldn't wait for a book based on Vasili BECAUSE LET'S FACE IT, HE WAS THE MOST INTERESTING CHARACTER, and when I finally got my hands on his own story!, I loved it, it was waaay more entretaining than the first one in the series.
The story is very simple. Despite its simplicity, readers would enjoy the entertaining exchange of charades between the two characters. The wittiness of the heroine and the seduction prowess of the hero is a perfect combination that would really entertain readers.
The weaving of the plots and characters are also good. The author also did a good job in creating a strong and independent heroine. The heroine may have her own flaws, but it was to make her character more realistic. Furthermore, the t...more
Vasili, yang dari awal sudah ada di seri pertamanya, dari situ aja saya sudah bisa mendapat gambaran kalau dia lelaki cantik. Dan saat tahu di seri kedua nyeritain dia, saya langsung histeris.
Disini, vasili, (playboy ga ketulungan, dari awal novel ini aja, adegan dia muncul udah sangat menggambarkan dia playboy sejati. Duhh...) berniat dijodohkan dengan alexandra, putri sahabat ayahnya yang sudah meninggal. perjodohan itu juga a...more
Vasili was a ladies man. He was so good looking that they came to him like bees on honey. Most women, his cousin Stephan's wife, Tanya, did not like him much. Alex is happy with his life, he has his mistresses around town and enjoys his single life. But it seems his mother has something different in mind for him.
Alexandria's dad wants her married. She had met an Englishman seven years ago but he never returned for her. At twenty-five her dad decides to fake a betrothal ag...more

Awalnya menarik sih, gw menikmatin banget 'adu muLut' antara VasiLi & Alex, dialognya asik...

Pas kelar baca semalem, gw ngerasa "Loh ? kok udah kelar ? Udah,cuma gitu aja ?"

Alexandra Rubliov and Vasili Petroff are forced to honour a betrothal agreement that their fathers 'supposedly' arranged. Neither are happy about it and do their damndest to get the other to break their engagement. Set in the Ukraine and Cardinia in 1836, you can just imagine the expolsive tempers that they bot...more
In all the world, no man exists who can tame Alexandra Rubliov. A fiery and beautiful free-thinker, Alex's steadfast refusal to marry has frustrated her hapless father. And so he creates a "long-forgotten" agreement and sends his rebellious daughter away -- falsely maintaining that Alexandra has been promised since childhood to the handsome, insufferable libertine whom she must now accompany to his homeland to wed.
Dismayed to find himself suddenly engaged, Count Vasi...more
The characters are well devloped and you are able to come to love and feel for them as they carry on in this funny, yet romantic tale.

although its quite cliche like vasili's feeling bloomed etc it still gave me goosebumps for good. its quite funny how vasili adored alex's boobs and told the reader over and over again lol
Great book! good story. A definite must read.
I'd highly recommend it.

I hadn't realized that Once a Princess is the first in this two book set. The characters from the first installment are included in this one, but the author does a good job at giving enough detail to be able to follow along. Though this is a stand...more

Alex was annoying. Her antics to change Vasali's mind to call off their betrothal was at first amusing, but it became quite annoying...more
perhaps vasili is playboy and love to playing with many girls,but althoughfinally vasili try to be loyal with alex and just love alex, but still.. there's something that not fit into.
That book only told that Vasili love Alex's breast and just wanna her body, wanna making love with her. well, its quite annoying me.
I want Vasilli really love her Alex, not because her body and cause something from Alex that could satisfied her.
Setelah membaca, saya lebih suka buku yang saya baca sebelumnya, tuh. Buat saya, buku ini agak nanggung dan nggak klimaks. Tapi, yah, tipikal Lindsey, tokoh utamanya pasti dari benci menjadi cinta. Emosinya lebih dapat di The Devil Who Tamed Her.
Saya memang bukan pencinta ceri...more
Yang menarik dari cerita ini adalah pertengkaran mereka sepanjang perjalanan.
So far, this book is very enjoyed to read.. apalagi mengikuti pertengkarannya mereka.

Alexandra was too angry to be intimidated.
"Misery loves company, sweetheart," she shot back. "So don't think I'll be suffering mine alone." She slipped out from under his arm and marched out the door.”
