A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows.

I couldn't put it down. My only wish is that it could have been a bit longer, it didn't take me very long to finish. I love Ms. Jordan's books and won't hesitate to buy more of them.

This is just OK. I read it on my Kindle instead of on my Nook because it was free there, too. My taste doesn't run to the steamy romances but if yours does, you'll like this. It's short on plot but long on the heavy petting scenes. As typical of these stories, it's dismissive of promiscuity and ignores the inference that she was a virgin before he treated her so roughly. I'm certain that was inferred, but he doesn't care, nor does she seem to. She seems incongruously tough and progressive, so outspoken for her time; then she faints...hmmm. Believable? Not so much. I don't especially care about the characters. There were several typos, but not too bad, comparatively. I liked the creative descriptions, though: I learned new words, like termagant and virago. It's good for a diversion, and a quick, unchallenging read.

When you are born into life with no discernible lineage, trying to find a good match becomes close to impossible. Despite the fact that her father is ridiculously rich Miss Grier Hadley is viewed as his illegitimate daughter and the large dowry he is offering is the only reason she is invited to parties at all. Grier is convinced she will marry a common man not a titled heir despite what her father wants. Crowned Prince Sevastian Maksimi is looking for a queen with impeccable taste and breeding and he needs to get that done today. He is to be King and everyone expects him to produce numerous perfect heirs with this flawless to be chosen queen. His interests are not to be considered and once Grier dumps her drink on his head, he is sure that she can be ruled out of any race to the altar despite her money and exquisite good looks. A man does love a feisty red head with freckles who can sass him without breaking a nail and funny things do tend to happen on the way to destiny. Sev may have the title but Grier has the magic that is drawing him to her and making him want to stop her from talking with a kiss. That one kiss turns into some roaming hands, deep breathing, and the thought that he might get her out of his mind if only he could get her into his bed for one night. He may know he cannot marry her, but does that have to rule out having a relationship with her? Grier is not going to back away from any fight as she has held her own since she was left to her own devices at a young age. She has known despair and the stigma of name calling so this future king can take a flying leap; she is not going to be any man's temporary fling. Yet the harder she fights to stay away the more she is drawn to him and he to her with total abandon to king and country. Sev has always fulfilled his duty but just this once he wants to know what it feels like to make his own choices and decide his own fate and love whom he desires. Sev and Grier stumble over each other enough that once they figure out that love has a way of making decisions for you. They are lost in one another's passionate embrace and while the past may cause some blips on Grier's radar and Sev's family seems to have more issues then he ever suspected if they can get past all that to move this may prove to be the best decision they independently make together! You have to prepare yourself that once you pick up this book the dishes will not be done, the family will have to fend for itself, and you will not be able to stop reading Sev and Grier's story. You feel the pain and passion from both of them and the adventure they are on is fabulous! The only unfortunate part is the book does end so do as I did and read it again and again and again.

I admit i didn't like this book at first. The attitude and arrogance the those people pissed me off. I almost gave up. But with the sparks and passion flying, I couldn't help myself. The story drew me in. There were a lot of useless words, could have been a lot simplier. Still I enjoyed this book.

Nice, quick read that had romance and not a lot of drama. I would recommend to a friend.

In the first half of the book I enjoyed the way the characters played off of one another. And while the story was fairytale sweet, it was unbelievable to me. A prince would never be allowed to marry so beneath himself. However, I did root for Grier when she refused to be a mistress. I liked them best when they were fighting, oddly enough and felt that this was a relationship that could have blossomed into a wonderful friendship. The chemistry felt somewhat contrived.

She has been independent, held a job, been attracted to another man, but when she gets around him she loses all semblance to her prior life. It was getting quite predictable. Didn't finish the book.
