Sophie Jordan grew up on a pecan farm in the Texas hill country, where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows..
S. Jordan gives you wonderful characters with the perfect mixture of dialogue and sexiness.
She kept going on about how she doesn't want to be like her mother and she want her siblings to have a better life.
Always look forward to a new historical novel by this author and this one does not disappoint!
Again, I say I CANNOT stand an overly strong minded heroine. I mean to the point you want to reach inside the book and slap some reality into her. Read morePublished 6 months ago by ASpoon

The characters' actions make little sense, dialogue is trite, and there are too many historical inaccuracies. Read morePublished 9 months ago by K. Joyce Williams
What fun, Ms. Jordan has a unique style, bringing to life the most unlikely princesses and making us fall in love right along with them.

Very few books cause me to tear up, but this one invoked a emotional response. The horror she went through.....
But she found her HEA, eventually. Good book. Great series.
Very good read. Cleo wants to marry an old man so she won't be endlessly pregnant or controlled by a man all her life. But then she meets young Logan McKinney.Published 18 months ago by Rose
