Loved both stories
An innocent photograph. A runaway media story. A real life Cinderella. A handsome, available Prince Charming. These were all the things that had started a long six year engagement. Finally today is their wedding day. But did they really know each other? Were her dreams for the future a castle in the sky? Did he consider this a dream match or another duty quietly performed? Or was this just a situation that got out of hand? They will have a lifetime to find out. Believing in love at first sight, Alyse Barras took one look at Prince Leo and fell in love. An innocent photograph taken at her birthday showed the world how she felt and the paparazzi went into a frenzy. When the royal family approached her with their proposal for their marriage, she was overjoyed. She would get her prince and live happily ever after. But the revelations on her wedding night she learned from her new husband crushed her hopes and dreams. She loved him, but he didn't love her. How can she salvage this dreadful mistake? Could she pick up the picks of her broken dreams and build a new life? Or would she have a long loveless marriage with no hope of reprieve? Spending his life in the spotlight, Prince Leo Diomedi of Maldinia had always known how to fake his reactions and play a part on the world stage. He knew he had a duty to perform to repair the monarchy badly damaged by the antics of his parents and increase tourist revenue to his small country. Duty...duty...duty. Those were the things he knew and there was no room for emotions. He didn't tolerate them, do relationships, or have intimacies. After all, he had never had any shown to him and the only time he had tried, he was betrayed. Now he was married and his new wife wanted to change the rules. She wanted a loving marriage with closeness and intimacy. Didn't she know love was a sham, a lie, a mist in someone's mind? How could she change the rules now? On their wedding day??? Couldn't she see they could have a sensible, emotionless, and loveless marriage and still accomplish everything they had planned ? The emotional roller coaster that these characters travel to find their happily ever after is an intense, wild ride from the beginning to the end of the book. Well written characters were interwoven with a well thought out plot to produce an enjoyable read. I enjoyed this book very much. Watching these people come from a long engagement without any knowledge of the person's dreams and expectations makes you realize that conversation about the things that you want in life are necessary for a fruitful and happy union. I would recommend this book to all romance readers. I received a signed copy from the author for an honest review. 5/5 stars Was their marriage doomed from the start?
