I liked this book *much* better than book one in the series (Queen of Hearts). The king (brother to the "hero" in book one) falls for the heroine (sister to the one in book 1) and her feistiness right from the start and decides that he doesn't want to break her - that he likes some of that fire. Thank you! He compromises for her sake and doesn't insist on the complete and total submission seen in book 1. He was still the dominant alpha male (and had his arrogant moments for sure) but for the most part, he dealt with his often challenging heroine with humor and understanding. It was a good battle of wills and a good match-up of two strong-willed characters. I really enjoyed this book.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the king of hearts, which is the story of Alexi's twin, Alice, but Alexi as a character is more my type of character. She's a kick-ass, independent, ball buster woman who will not take crap from anyone, especially anyone messing with the people she cares about. Unlike her twin, she likes being submissive, but only in the bedroom. Everywhere else, she wants to be an equal. Darronn, the King of Spades, is not used to being disobeyed so he has to learn to compromise if he wants to keep Alexi with him as his Queen of Spades. Great great book and if you like explicit sex, ta-dah this book has got ya covered.
the 2nd book in the King Series erotic great reads!
loved it! now i'm waiting for book #3!
