This the second book in this series and the main plot is a marriage because the King of Vloyarus thinks is the best for the country. The first book explained a real love story, but this one started different because these two characters never met before and Demyan had to seduce Chanel until she accepted the wedding.

I have no idea how she managed to stay virgin for this long but Demyan was super sweet about it and we can clearly see he is touched by her admit ion and the reasons why she wants him to be her first. I actually liked these two together and even if Demyan would never chose Chanel without a secret motive, it was fun to watch these two falling in love. Demyan really needed some love after the way his family accepted all those years.

But my main issue was Chanel mother and the way she kept acting. I simply hated her stepfather and in the end her mother did explain but the reasons weren’t good enough for me. So 3 stars because of it.

I really liked this book, because we can see a prince marriage with a baby on the way and a very strong female. I liked the fact Gillian didn’t just bow down after Maksim started making orders. He really needed to stop and think a little before taking the next step. We can clearly see he had feelings for her, but after the way they broke up it was difficult to just get back without a serious conversation and dealing with some issues.
 
The most conserning probme was the fact she couldn’t have a child, after some seriuous inflamation to her apendicy. I actually liked the fact she’s not perfect, because all those princes want perfect woman and we can see Maksin really loves her. After discovering she was pregnant, Mak was all in for a wedding, but he was not disapointed I think he only jumped on the news and decided to get the best of it.
 
I really liked the way he was after hearing on the baby news, he wanted the mother and it was fun watching him work on getting her back. Gillian was a great person and she’s really good. So this book was a nice romance.
