Pride and Fire by JoMarie DeGioia

PAUL TALBOT, Viscount Leed, is set on avoiding the marriage trap. Though his family has money troubles he won't marry an heiress and dance on her leading strings. LADY MICHELLE THOMAS is a spirited heiress, piqued with the rules of Society which dictate that a woman must be seen and not heard. And if she has opinions on politics or finance? Well, she had best keep them to herself. Sparks fly when she meets Paul -she believes she's found a man interested in more than her face, form and finances. They wed but when Paul refuses her generous dowry she'll do anything to see her money settled on him, even if it means going to his rival and putting more than his career in jeopardy.

This book was not worth the $3 I paid for it. Paul and Michelle met briefly in the novel before this one. There was enough fire between them that I thought their story would be great; however, I was wrong. The author did not do a good job of allowing a relationship to slowly build between them, as most writters do. They only met apx 3 times in this story before they got married, and during each of those times Paul was very mean towards her. Once they married he excluded her from large chuncks of his life and exploded on her if she asked about it. Her firey temper was easily pacified by his apologies, which just made me sick. This was by far one of the most poorly edited books I've ever read. At one point readers are told Paul's sisters are a year apart, but throughout the story they are referred to as twins. When Michelle finally discovers what's going on, the story becomes choppy. I had to read this section several times because I thought my nook didnt down load a page. Another thing that I couldnt stand was the poorly written love scenes. One minute theyre kissing and the next they are euphoric. I wanted to read Chester and Robert's stories because I was so drawn in by them after the first book, but I think I'll pass because there was no character development for there supporting roles in this story. Once again, I wish I never spent my time or money on this poorly written book.

Pride and Fire by Jo Marie DeGioia #2 in her interesting "Dashing Nobles" series. Can be read as a stand alone. A unique storyline but, I had a hard time liking or connecting with the characters. The story does have intrigue, betrayal, suspense, passion, sexually intensive, blackmail, deceit, violence and romance. Can the H/H come to grip with their inner conflicts, and find healing, forgiveness and their HEA? There was something difficult to enjoy about the H/H, while both are intelligent, strong-willed, and independent characters, they seem to come off as sad, pathetic people. However, with this said it is an enjoyable read with some twists and turns. Would I read the next installment, yes, I would! Received for an honest review from Net Galley. However, all opinions and thoughts are my own. Rating: 4 Heat rating: Mild to hot due to the violence Reviewed by: AprilR

Too much/long sex. The 'hero' said some things that disgusted me, and really dropped my opinion of him. I'm sorry I bought this series

Review Blurb: ~~~ I tried with great difficulty to love the story, but found the characters were inconsistent in both behavior and action to what I expected. One minute Michelle is strong-willed and opinionated and the next she is cowering over Paul¿s expletives and anger. I do not know that I ever understood Paul¿s quick turnaround from keeping Michelle at a distance to claiming her as his. ~~~ Please see full review at www (dot) justeroticromancereviews (dot) com

I knew next to nothing concerning the romance genre before picking this up, but JoMarie DeGioia delivers the goods in "Pride And Fire!" The heat literally leaped off the page, traveled through my cuticles, and wormed it's way into my nether-regions. A great gift idea!
