A great read. Loved the Regina!
Kept me fairly involved. A quick read. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
In this breathtaking new tale of intrigue and incomparable romance from bestselling author Patricia Grasso, a merchants daughter and a prince risk everything
Pawned off by her father to a dissolute Earl, spirited Regina Bradford devotes herself to her writing, nursing her secret dreams of becoming a novelist.
It isnt long before she attracts the admiration of Prince Viktor Kazanov, a man locked in an equally unhappy marriage. Yet even as Regina loses her heart
to the dashing aristocrat, she dares not surrender completely.
Scandal erupts when Viktor is accused of murdering his faithless wifecaught in a compromising position with Reginas husband. But as much as Viktor regretted
his marriage, hed never resort to murder. And no one is more stunned than he when Regina testifies to a packed courtroom that he cannot be guiltybecause
he was in her bed that night.
The wave of gossip and intrigue that ensues is just the beginning of an adventure that will change their lives forever. Now, as unseen danger threatens
Regina, Viktor must seize his one chance to write the perfect ending to their story.
Love the series of books written by this author. This has emotional ups and downs that keep you on your toes.
The premise sounded wonderful and unique but the book failed to live up to it. Prince Viktor was Russian in name only and most closely resembled your typical young mid 20's American bachelor. His childhood and Russian heritage seemed to affect him not in the slightest and there were so many times when he said, thought, or did things that seemed totally out of character for who he was supposed to be portraying. He accuses Regina, a woman he already says he intends to marry, of playing a role in the murders, he uses a term to (jokingly) describe Regina that was pretty awful, and finally he does something pretty horrible to her at the end - that seriously endangers her life - for a relatively unimportant reason and then gets promptly forgiven. He makes a suggestion for what she could do in bed to seem like a different woman that was pretty disgusting too. In short, he's your average man. Not horrible or evil but certainly not a hero or the the type of man women buy romance novels to read about.
