First person POV alert! *Alternating* first person POV alert.
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
ARC provided by NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.

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

"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 "

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

Really not as horrible as the last few I've read by this author. The hero grovels nicely at the end. And I liked the way the heroine is compared to Don Quixote. I actually mentioned the mad Don in my review of THE GUARDIAN'S VIRGIN WARD.

I wonder if CC reads her reviews!

I loved this book! One of the better ones of late, written in a first person view, which is very unusual for a HP. Imogen and Javier were both so deserving of their HEA after the lives they had lead during their formative years. The only thing missing was an epilogue which I really wanted, if just to see Javier finally getting the huge family he so craved.

My Bought Virgin Wife by Caitlin Crews is a sexy marriage of convenience romance for a French aristocratic daughter, and a Spanish businessman looking for a society status upgrade – and finding love in the bargain.

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

I LOVED this book! There are great reviews out there on this, so I'll keep mine short. The H has a tragic past growing up on the streets of Madrid. The h has always felt unloved and flawed. When they meet the day before their arranged marriage sparks fly!

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

I read the paperback version from Mills and Boon with this cover. This is my first book that I have read by Caitlin Crews, and oh boy did it deliver. The story starts of quiet scary. Imogen Fitzalan is scared as she is about to get married in the morning to a monster, how frightening is that? How is she going to manage a man like Javier Dos Santtos? One of the most interesting stories that makes your heart go out to Imogen in her situation. Will their marriage be a happy one? I've left it open f ...more

Caitlin Crews is a very good writer. I feel angst while reading her books. I don’t like all the books, some of them are not for me but I certainly loved this one. 4,5 stars
Mar 19, 2019 added it
Wew, i finished this one and i feel weird.
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.

I liked it well enough, but not quite the best I've read from this author.
I quite enjoyed this one. It had a lot of the favorite tropes.

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
If you want an excellent review (complete with some spoilers), read Ivy's review here .

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

Crews has always been a hit or miss author for me but this gem is probably the best of hers that I've read so far.

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

I just realized I put myself through hours of agony for nothing

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

**ARC provide to NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

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.

I always like Caitlin Crews but this was one of her better books. Imogen and Javier were both interesting characters and I really liked the flip in perspectives for each chapter. It was well written if a little rushed at the end.
I liked the book and the story, but felt there could have been more on Imogen's family as far as revenge or comeuppance for what they did. I enjoyed reading about Javier, but again there could have been something else with his family.

The main characters, Javier and Imogen, are entering an arranged marriage. Both main characters have a lot of baggage that they need to work through while they are getting to know each other. This is all taking place during a very short amount of time, so they are under a lot of pressure emotionally. Imogen is very innocent and naïve as she has mostly lived in a secluded place and on top of that she has a nasty father and an evil step-sister. Javier has a major chip on his shoulder because of hi ...more

Caitlin Crews discovered her first romance novel at the age of twelve, in a bargain bin at the local five and dime. It involved swashbuckling pirates, grand adventures, a heroine with rustling skirts and a mind of her own, and a seriously mouthwatering and masterful hero. The book (the title of which remains lost in the mists of time) made a serious impression. Caitlin was immediately smitten with ...more
