More About This Book

Overview

"Once upon a time, there was a girl who dressed up and went to a big party at the palace. When she was there, she met a prince. They danced and fell in love..."

Damn good line. Too bad I don't believe a word of it anymore.

My name is Claire Montgomery...and I'm not a princess. I'm a fighter. I worked hard to earn my place on the emergency image repair team for one of the biggest public relations companies in the country. We've been called to the renowned Chicago headquarters of Stone Global Corporation, where it's our job to clean up a heap of the Stone family's filthiest laundry. Our success will be the biggest victory of my career. I'm on my game. I'm ready.

Why doesn't "ready" include a contingency plan for Killian Stone?

My name is Killian Stone...and they call me the "Enigma of Magnificent Mile." That's just the way I like it. Elite tycoons want into my bank account. Their wives and daughters want into my pants. They'll all do anything for a piece of the enigma-until a crack in the castle is too huge for anyone to ignore. What they all don't know is that I'm thrilled about the fissure. Their fascination with the scandal means nobody will look at the bigger secret of the Stone family. I'm safe.

Until Claire Montgomery walks through my doors.

Her honesty, her bravery, her humor...they pull me in, a prism against the gray walls of my tower. I'm captivated. For the very first time, I long to shed the enigma. To share my secret. But what the hell will that get me? Even if she fits the slipper I offer...I'm no Prince Charming.

    Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed reading No Prince Charming by a

    Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed reading No Prince Charming by authors Angel Payne & Victoria Blue. I sort of walked in with preconceived notions of what to expect, which, thankfully were absent. First off, the whole story is told in alternating first person POVs which, the authors have very successfully pulled off. I hate it when I feel like the story ping-pongs back and forth between characters and I get lost. Not a problem here. The transitions back and forth was smoothly done and gave wonderful insights to Killian’s and Claire’s thought and feelings. The other reason I was surprised I enjoyed No Prince Charming was because of Killian. 




    So many authors seems to think the leading male needs to be rich, domineering and has to sweep the leading lady off her feet straight into a BDSM relationship That cookie cutter premise has gotten so old. Thankfully, that is not the case here. I found him to be a combination of smexy and sweet. Claire also lacks that cookie cutter character as well although she does seem to fall into that Cinderella realm with a (so-to-be) evil step-sister, Margaux. Now that is one chick I wouldn’t mind seeing her stiletto get stuck in a stairwell on the way down. Back to Claire and Killian. Their dialog was snarky and funny, their sexual interludes sometimes had me in stitches. They certainly were creative on getting private moments together. And secrets…boy do these two have juicy secrets! Of course while we the reader finds out both their secrets before everyone else does, I was surprised to find out only one gets revealed. Truly I knew this was a series but as the story progressed along I was surprised to find the ending to have cliffhangers. They were those OMG I need the next book NOW type for me. The cliffhangers were more of Oh Boy! type to let me simmer along.




    This is my first book by both authors and it certainly won’t be the last. They have a style that is like smooth whiskey…goes down hot and lingers for a while. I know I’m looking forward to the next book in the Secrets of Stone series. Yes, No Prince Charming is a book I will be recommending.




    I received this book from JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.

    I love their story, I honestly do.. So much fun and intrigue and a hot, dominant, billionaire
    named Killian who is swoon worthy and a plucky irresistable gal named Claire who can
    actually stand on her own two feet. I love that it is a wonderful suspenseful romance and
    with the cast of characters can go in so many directions. Also it is the first book in a series
    Cannot wait for the next book to come out in October 2014.

    I absolutely loved this book. Angel and Victoria did an amazing job. I fell in love with Killian Stone right away. Who wouldn't? That's what happens when Claire and the company she works for are hired by Killian to do some PR work for him and his out of control brother. When Claire and Killian meet the fire is lit and there's no way it will be put out. Clair's future sister in law isn't going to let that happen because she wants Killian for herself. This is a wonderful story and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

    There's nothing  I love more than an alpha male and Killian is definitely an alpha male! I love sweet Claire and the dominate Killian together, they balance one another out. I love Claire being sweet but not a doormat. The chemistry between Claire and Killian is totally off the charts! One of my favorite quotes is "He intoxicated me, and I never wanted sobriety. He enslaved me, and I never wanted freedom." I can't wait to tackle the second book to see how their relationship is progressing and I'm dying to know Killian's secrets! This book is a must read!

    A great twist on Cinderella

    What a great book. A new twist on the classic tale of Cinderella. I really enjoyed the modern adaption to the classic fairy tale. This version had really inventive twists that took the original story in new directions while still having elements from the original story. I have to say I liked the new adult additions to the story. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    Killian Stone, ruler of the SGC empire, has had it with his olde

    Killian Stone, ruler of the SGC empire, has had it with his older brother Trey's antics.  This time Killian will have to call in a professional PR firm to clean-up Trey's mess and that's when he meets Claire Montgomery.  She's everything he didn't want to want.

    LOVED IT!!!  I was hooked from the beginning to the end.  The story flowed perfectly with no dull moments.  Killian Stone is the stuff dreams are made of.  His attention towards Claire never faltered, even when she thought it did.

    The writing style of these authors is amazing and I can't wait to read the next book in the Secrets of Stone series.

    Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Romantic, Sexy & HOT!

    I couldn’t put this book down! I was captivated from the very beginning and couldn’t get enough of Claire and Killian. They were electric together!

    Claire Montgomery works for a PR firm that comes in to clean up the messes of the rich and famous. Killian Stone runs the family business and is a very influential and successful businessman. Killian’s older brother, Trey, screws up --- again --- but this time it threatens their family’s business and their good name. Killian calls in the big guns to help clean it up. Claire and Killian have an instant attraction and can’t stay away from each other, but they both have secrets that threaten to destroy them if the truth was ever revealed. Can they let themselves trust each other enough to find their “happily ever after?”

    At first, I was concerned about how I was going to like reading a story in two different POV’s. This story was so well written that after the first two chapters I was hooked! I couldn’t wait to finish one chapter and get to the next to see what each of them were thinking. The story does not repeat itself, each chapter continues the story and alternates between Claire and Killian’s POV. It added so much to their character development and to their romance to be able to get into both their heads and really understand what and how they were feeling. It made you love them even more!

    I truly enjoyed this story and can't wait for the next one. Killian Stone could be my prince charming! Claire needs a bit more maturing but I am sure that is coming.. and I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the characters. Angel Payne is one of my go to authors and she does not disappoint (along with Victoria Blue) on this one.. my only issue - it's way too long to wait for the next one.. but it will definitely be on my kindle asap!!

    AWESOME!! Miss Payne and Miss Blue kept me enthralled in book 1

    AWESOME!! Miss Payne and Miss Blue kept me enthralled in book 1 of what I have no doubt will be a best selling new series! I love their snark and chemistry and cannot wait to see where their story will take us next. I had a difficult time tearing myself away from reading. The secondary characters have me drawn in as well and I look forward to see what may be in store for all parties involved! Great job ladies!
