EVERYTHING ABOUT THE PALACE HAD ALWAYS INTRIGUED HER
Including the incredibly handsome crown prince himself. There was no denying that Murat was a man of mystery, power and many talents. But for a husband, Daphne Snowden wanted more. Sure, future "queen" sounded lovely, but she wanted someone who saw her as more than a woman to bear the next heir to the throne. Someone who respected her. Someone who loved her.
Still, there was that niggling burning desire and unfinished business between them. And though time had changed him, it had not erased her interest in the only man she ever loved. But obey his demands and marry him? Never!
Release date: February 1st 2005
Not my favorite book in this series. Murat needed a serious neck smack. He kidnapped, keep stranded and even married a woman with an head injury. He seriously has issues with being the crown prince and having everything on his way.
I liked Daphne and completely understand her reasons to leave on the first place. Okay, she loved him, but also tried to move on. She had a normal life with a very dysfunctional family bugging her about choices, still she always made everything right, until her niece accepted a wedding with Murat and Daphne had to return and show him things would be different this time.
I liked when Murat finally realized he needed Daphne in his life and how much she actually meant for him. But he deserved to suffer a lot more.
