My Bought Virgin Wife
But will her innocence break all my rules?
I’ve never wanted anything like I want heiress Imogen Fitzalan. I married her to secure my empire—but my untouched wife has ignited an undeniable hunger in me. Desire beyond reason wasn’t my plan…yet now I have a new aim: to strip away her obedience and replace it with a fierce passion to match my own…
Other possible triggers: hero was with heroine’s sister 8 years before.
It’s never really answered if the hero had sex with the sister since this is first person POV and the heroine never asks out loud – just thinks it. The hero has absolutely no sexual/emotional/any attraction to the sister - so whatever happened in the past stayed in the past.
Now with all of those disclaimers/triggers out of the way, I’ll cover the plot. Self-made ...more
Imogen has been sheltered and protected all her life. Her father controlled her life and has arranged an marriage for her. Her sister was the beautiful one, but not so beautiful on the inside. The man Imogen is to marry was originally wanting her beautiful sister, but her Father had promised her to someone else.
Javier was Imogen intended groom. He came from a tough and not so wonderful childhood that left him dealing with ...more
"I love you,you fool "
"It isn't going to go away just because you do " she said
"You didn't come after me"
"Javier ..." she whispered one hand dropping to cradle that belly were my child grew and something in me... broke .
"You have ruined me "
"You took my home .you took my heart when I didn't think it existed to be taken "
H was a jerk and I wanted to hit him but he was a good groveling boy 😉
This was almost a perfect little romance novel! So freaking close! If not for the end where he runs off and leaves her alone for a long time....
Anyway, Imogen Fitzalan has never fit in, with her family, or the high society that she'd forced into. Now she's being forced to marry a man she doesn't know. A man that had once wanted to marry her older half sister... yeah, sounds crazy right? Well, it's all cute. Javier was actually a really nice guy, I felt so badly for him, growing up the ...more
I wonder if CC reads her reviews!
Imogen Fitzalan is a French heiress who hasn’t had a very happy life. Her mother died when she was young, and she’s trapped with a cruel father who constantly denigrates her over her flamboyant red hair and impulsive manner, comparing her to her perfectly put together blonde half siste ...more
These two were so perfect for each other and I was so into this book. There were a few minor mentions of the Hero's OW past, but it never bothered me. He was a different man around the h and she soon had him turned inside out in love. He just ne ...more
It is like the heroine said the sky is blue
And the hero disagreeing with her, and claims instead that the sky is in fact "blue"
This is one of those books that after you reach the end and closes it, you'll just ask yourself, 'what did i just read?'
If you enjoy reading novels with 1st person voice, you might enjoy this one or understand and connect with the book, the way i did not.
I liked this book, but I wish Imogen had a little bit more balls to stand up for herself, I mean she did a little but I didn't think it was enough, “you could have stayed if you wished. I didn’t ask you to come with me, I merely said I was done.” Javier was okay I wished the man had more feelings.
A sister who I thought better of and was disappointed.
A cold father who sold his daughter into marriage for his own benefit.
A heroine who is sweet, kind, innocent and feisty as hell. It took her a little while to find herself, but once she did, she owned it.
A hero whose childhood left him in a dark place. He’s cold, harsh and considered by most to be a monster.
I love the way the author chose to write the book in the first person ...more
This was such a different book, I don't know where to start. First, it was written in alternating first-person views. Then, there wasn't a whole lot of action per se, but you *do* get a lot of internal thoughts/ emotions from both of the main characters. You can see and feel what is actually happening with them and how their relationship changes. This makes it so much more personal when some "black moments" h ...more
I'm no a fan of 1st person POV so I was iffy on that. The book is broken down into 'his' chapters and 'her' chapters, both 1st person POV, which is something I've not seen so far - but damned if it didn't work.
We read bout heroines who are 'sacrificed' to MOCs or arranged marriages to help the family, etc., and you read about heroes who come with a lot of baggage from their youth, et ...more
Just imagine having a plastic bag around your head with only enough puncture holes to allow you to breathe and not suffocate... that's how I felt while reading this book. Here you are treated to excessive inner dialogue and contemplation by both main characters only to be interrupted by the occasional scene where the h is being belittled, disrespected or physically and verbally abused. Nevertheless, I kept on reading in hope of being ...more
Not bad but I would have preferred the female lead character to have more spunk, I'm so over door mat virgins that take whatever garbage is thrown at them by evil relatives. The ending was also rather abrupt. A decent epilogue would have been nice too.
