Awesome sex with a stranger is now something she can check off her bucket list.

Except he isn’t exactly a stranger. He’s the guy who broke her heart when they were teens, an experience she doesn’t plan on repeating.

Prince Leo can’t believe he’s finally found the woman he’s loved for years, and she wants nothing to do with him. When she shows up at his office, she looks anything but princess-like. In fact, she’s cursing him to hell and back. She may not be Cinderella, but he’s determined to prove he’s the prince for her––even if it means letting her go.

OPENING LINE

“I hope you’re happy, Brian,” Alicia Forkes whispered under her breath, eyeing the crowded nightclub.

What an enjoyable read! From the minute I picked up The Prince’s Bride I wasn’t able to stop reading!

When Alicia comes face to face with Prince Leo, he knows exactly who she is. However, she doesn’t recognize him. I don’t blame her, since he was in disguise! After their steaming night together and old laws Leo has to make Alicia stay with him. Which turns out to be just as difficult as Leo thinks it’ll be. We learn that Leo and Alicia originally met as teenagers back in New York City, they promised to write letters to each other and at around the 40% mark I had a very good idea as to what happened to those letters.

The tension between these two continues to build throughout the story, and there comes a point that Alicia can no longer deny the attraction. While I enjoyed watching the tension and chemistry build, I enjoyed learning more about both Leo and Alicia. Leo is a Prince who is soon to be King and Alicia is a regular girl from the US who believes Leo must marry a Prince. As the miscommunication about the past comes to light other issue arise causing pain to both Leo and Alicia. However, they got they’re blissful happily ever after.

The Prince’s Bride was a modern day retelling of Cinderella. It was such an enjoyable read that I can’t wait to pick up other books in this series!

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn’t help that she can’t keep her eyes off of her sexy boss – the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.

Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn’t believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother’s face when Maggie tells her that she’s his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms-and in his bed-she’d be everything he could ever want…which is why he can’t have her.

But if he doesn’t let her go, they’ll lose everything…
