I absolutely loved this read. This was my second book from Jeana, but it was absolutely my favorite. That being said. I need to read every other book she has written because not only do I love her crafting of a plot, but her characters are glorious.
This duo was everything. I love royalty reads and this one was not only a royal read but it was a marriage of convenience. EVERYTHING. This story was everything. Keep the bride you need for a title at arms length to keep your crown?
Sounds like a super great plan.
NOT. These two were not only destined for each other but I was on the tips of my toes waiting for these two to finally just let what was in front of them becoming what ti was meant to be.
Throw in some twists that leave you filled with anticipation and a kingdom to rule and you won't be disappointed in this read. I know I wasn't.
“Shall we begin?” When spoken by my new husband, these three little words fill me with terror and anticipation.
In private, King Henry rules my body like he rules his country—with unrelenting control and passion. I crave his orders, his punishment, his commands. Outside the bedroom, we’re strangers caught in a web of lies and decadence.
Our marriage is a sham, a business arrangement devised to save my life and secure his crown. He doesn’t love me. He loves my body, controlling it, shaming it, worshipping it. To survive the dangers at court, I need to be smart, but it’s hard to think straight with a man like Henry between my legs.
Each night, he locks the bedroom door, determined to teach me a new lesson. Obedience, patience, trust. I lie awake in bed waiting for the sound of his footsteps and the latest installment in pleasure and pain. My heart pounds when the hinges creak and his broad shoulders block the door. I’m not ready, but I can’t wait to feel his hands on me. He shoves his bowtie in my mouth, binds my hands to the headboard, and whispers in my ear…
