She’s slated to become the king’s latest concubine, a sexual toy for male pleasure, only Marisol meets his hot son, Prince Grentoori, first. Instantly attracted, they break with tradition and have lots of heated sex—the forbiddenness of their actions driving them on. But when a traitorous general discovers the prince’s sexy transgression, the battle is on. Grentoori can’t leave Marisol, so the prince escapes with her in a carriage that becomes caught in an earthquake…
Marisol comes to in a transformed Grant Drury’s arms. Could it be? Is he the insolent boss she left behind or her sixteenth-century lover?
This was a very good book with lots of twists and turns to keep it interesting. I was very impressed with the author’s writing and her seeming in-depth knowledge of ancient cultures.
The love scenes are hot and well-written while moving the story forward. I think readers will enjoy, as I did, the chemistry between the hero and heroine in both time frames. My only complaint is that the ending comes a little bit abruptly and although they’ve written an epilogue, it didn’t stop the jarring sense that came with the fast ending for me.
I give this book a high recommendation and hope everyone will check it out.
