I'm not usually a fan of historicals where the prince falls in love with/marries below his station, despite my love of fairy tales. This one was pretty good. I enjoy Sophie Jordan's work a lot, though, and will probably read almost anything she writes.

Pretty sure I did listen to this, as I remember being glad there was a book devoted to Vivian as she had been an unforgettable character in an earlier novel in the series. So I've just borrowed it again to revisit...

Meanwhile, I've read the comments below and zeeelicious, thanks, your rundown of the book has brought it back to me, along with your reflections on the character of Vivien - she stood out!!

This book wrecked me, wooed me, made me cry, made me so anxious, scared me and then tied it all together with a happy ever after. Sophia and Edward had a short liaison that was cut short because he had the duty to marry for the Dukedom. But the love lost when they separated broke both of them. When Edward's wife dies, he returns for Sophia determined to win her back in to his life...forever! He spends the whole book trying to convince her he means marriage, kids and everything and that they can stand up to the scrutiny of the Ton and his horrible Grandmother, the Dowager. Seriously, finished this in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. One section had me so sad and feel a horrible pit in my stomach (you KNOW what I'm talking about), then I was swooning as they made love, then I was frustrated with Sophia for not letting herself go and just love Edward, then I was scared of the Dowager, and then the cycle started all over again.

I know this makes no sense and I am rambling but seriously, I was on the edge of the page the whole time!

The Heroine
Sophia Russell is a courtesan that had a rough childhood, although I don't recall much detail about it. She is beautiful and the sweetest woman to everyone. Its no wonder Edward (and many other men) adored her! But when Edward had to walk away to fulfill the duties of the Dukedom, she was crushed. It took her a long time to get past the pain, but she did eventually and took other protectors, but none compared to Edward. So when she reconnected with Edward, she had to protect her heart from something that she thought could never be. She was truly trying to protect him as well, but slowly Edward was able to break down the wall around her heart.

The Hero
Edward, the Duke of Lockhart is now my new favorite book boyfriend. Hands down. He had very little choice but to walk away from Sophia and get married, but it was a difficult marriage as he and his new wife were in love with other people. When she died, he felt horrible that her short life was so miserable. But he was able to return to Sophia and convince her to love him. He was so sweet to give her space when she needed it and obey her 'rules' she put in their liaison. So patient! Ugh, he was the best and I was rooting for him the whole book, just hoping Sophia would see reason!

The Steam
I mean its Jess Michaels, OF COURSE there is steam and in the best way!

Meredith Sinclair es el prototipo de una perfecta dama de sociedad. Causa sensación en cualquier fiesta, los hombres caen rendidos a sus pies y toda mujer ansía ser como ella. Pero bajo esa fachada de mujer con éxito se esconde una magnífica espía. Y su nueva misión es muy personal.
Le es encomendada llevar a cabo una investigación sobre la implicación de Tristan Archer en el robo de un cuadro en el que podría ocultarse información secreta sobre los movimientos del ejército británico en Francia. Meredith sabe que no debería tener una relación cercana con él, pero aquel hombre le salvó la vida hace muchos años. Y cada vez le resulta más difícil creer que Tristan pueda hacer algo así cuando sus besos son tan exquisitos.… (mais)
