Waiting for a new Men of the Zodiac romance from Indulgence? Meet Libra...Sign: LibraHe's hot, irresistible...and he will always make sure you're satisfied.
Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton was never supposed to be ruler of Callanos. He was the "spare to the heir," pursuing a decadent life of the rich and royal - extreme sports, physical pleasures, and glorious irresponsibility. Until his brother died. Now Nick is to be coronated king, and no one believes he's ready.The best way to secure his crown is to do the unthinkable...find a queen.
While Isabel Reynolds works in the palace gardens, she has no desire to draw the attention of the way-too-flirty, would-be king. For she's not the woman everyone thinks she is. Even if she wanted - or was tempted by - the promise of love, it would only end in disaster. Because while Isabel may be able to catch a king, her secrets would only destroy him...
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
This was a Cinderella meets Prince Charming story if Cinderella was a fugitive and Prince Charming was a hot, tattooed, triathlon medalist with his man junk pierced before ascending the throne. Yes ladies, there’s a piercing involved, and Prince Nick really knows how to use it
This story was sweet and hot. There were not many surprises but it was a really nice read. Nick is about to be appointed King by family circumstances, not that he ever wanted to be King, really, and after he dedicated his time to extreme sports, a fast life and women falling at the bat of an eyelash, most everyone in the country doesn’t see him as ready to take on the responsibility.
Isabel is happy working in the palace gardens and being otherwise invisible. Not as much a chosen lifestyle but out of necessity as she is running from something in her past.
This time though, running is on her side, as beating Crown Prince Nicholas on his morning run put her firmly on his sights.
He is the charming, smooth yet caring guy she always dreamed about. She is a breath of fresh air, not just for her beauty but by her substance and character. Not being impressed by a title is another thing that makes Isabel so special.
The rest, you can figure out… as I said, the plot twists are pretty predictable, but it was a very enjoyable read, quite hot (don’t forget the piercing) and it had me smiling.
