Customers who bought this item also bought
Career woman Bronte Talbott never intends for sexy Brit Max Hayworth to be anything other than her TM—transitional man. But as the Duke of Northrop, Max wasn’t raised to be the “love-’em-and-leave-’em” type that has burned Bronte in the past. The two meet in a Chicago bookstore eight weeks before Max finishes his doctoral work and has to return to England to assume his title. Max is reluctant to reveal his lineage when he discovers that Bronte is obsessed with the royals, but the sudden death of his father reveals his secret, and Bronte realizes that it is she who will be making a transition. Mulry, a newcomer to the romance genre, moves between the perspectives of Max and Bronte with perfect timing, and their relationship is believable in its idiosyncrasies. Though the premise may be that of a fairy tale, the very human characters keep the plot fresh, funny, and engaging, with Mulry’s lavish descriptions of fashion an added bonus. --Amber Peckham

Language: very strong throughout
The book felt a little like a saga covering a couple of years. I enjoyed the book but there were points of character change that left me a little confused. The character would have a startling realization about herself and I thought. Huh. I knew she had an issue, but I didn't get that this was it. Frankly, even when explained I still didn't get it. Possibly lack of IQ points on my part. Unrelated to the stars, but for the benefit of those trying to decide whether or not to purchase, if I'd known how explicit the sex was I wouldn't have bought it.
I liked that Bronte was in her late twenties, which made her a career woman rather than a silly unfocused girl. The pace of the book slowed once they became engaged and the plot after that point needed more action. I loved the scene where Bronte tried on all the family’s heirloom jewelry to select her engagement ring. It was every girl’s dream to be dripping with jewelry! From the cover, I was lulled into thinking this would be a cute chick lit book, so I was surprised when a hefty portion was squarely in the romance / erotica genre! I would never have picked this up if I had known I would read about Bronte and Max’s steamy sex and their quest to use 100 condoms in under a month! Yikes!
Overall, the book was entertaining but I don’t think I’ll read the remaining series.

She doesn't know she's dating a member of the royalty she's only read about...Now she is the one dealing with the paparazzi, rules, and rumors. Can she handle all that life offers? Or will she walk away, most likely with her broken heart?
I loved this book - I read it twice in 2 years. Great for everybody, especially those who dream of a "William & Kate" type of life happening to them.
