    I was sixteen when I read this My aunt gave me some hardback romances, and this one was one of them Memory is sketchy, but I filled it in with LOLzy bits and comic relief.I remember something about a tavern wench with a birthmark being a long lost princess lol, I wonder if that would hold up in court I need to collect my long, lost inheritance , and her being rather lovely, if it weren t for those pesky men harassing her, so she ashes up her face to look like a leper and men are teh scarez o I was sixteen when I read this My aunt gave me some hardback romances, and this one was one of them Memory is sketchy, but I filled it in with LOLzy bits and comic relief.I remember something about a tavern wench with a birthmark being a long lost princess lol, I wonder if that would hold up in court I need to collect my long, lost inheritance , and her being rather lovely, if it weren t for those pesky men harassing her, so she ashes up her face to look like a leper and men are teh scarez of her deathmask, so that keeps them at bay The hero sails from an unknown kingdom to collect the princess for marrying Heheheheh It likely pre dates Shrek s Far, Far Away He readily starts the ridiculing and kickin her down for her lack of jawdropping attributes, but later, after a surprise dip in a stream lake he sees what an utter jackass rat bastard he s been, but doesn t hesitate to continue with the beatdown.Now, in my head I was all, oh god girl, don t do it Make him feel your hairy legs for months, and skip deodorant a few days to test his lovin s. I was sixteen, get off my ballz , but in all actuality the freakin HERO was the one really scarred and shit He reminded me of the Mummy, with the sinewy bits of muscles cartilage stretched over skull Or a really gaunt Willem Dafoewho I have everlasting love for, but still Why you callin people fugly when you re obviously pushing the average number, you bastage Threatened by beauty, make woman feel inferior for it, check.Eventually he s overcome with the ruts and does the heroine in the veil of the night, but insists she s some trollop, from her showcasing at the tavern she served at, so he doesn t believe her when she says she was a bleedin virgin It seems as though his valet had to confirm it Yes, as I recall the hero didn t even have the courtesy of REMOVING his breeches during the deed, and the evidence was there.First of all what guy does that Iono, maybe his balls are scarred, too Maybe he has a flat tire sack goin on or some telltale parasitic twin growth, I m not sure, but that was ultimately pathetic, by any human standards Unless this Prince has Foehammer tucked away for the sexors, my best bet is that a good part of it is gonna STILL be hidden inside his breeches And don t get me started on zippers thank goodness there weren t any during that time period, I m assuming, or else she would have had a few ripped stitches And needless to say a virgin pants soaking up your trope heroine s natural, endless spring, during the whole gawd awful dressed for EVERY affair nightmare, I m terrified to think of a repeat.Secondlywhy is your valet acting as a woman s reputation courier, and lastlywas he not disrobed because his valet generally does that for him Lol When your valet isfamiliar with your clothing than you are, it s time to put down the crown of prissy pussness.Lololol Johanna Lindsey D You make me sniggle giggle

    Normally, I would never have liked this book I mean, abducted heroines and obtuse heroes are so not my thing Yet, I liked this.I read the 2nd book before I picked up this and only convinced myself that I want to read this today, this morning It was like a Cinderella story with a transcontinental setting and a Prince or King UnCharming The hero, Stephen is one angry man So, generally you don t find a HR hero who has anger management issues to the point of being dangerous and borderline ab Normally, I would never have liked this book I mean, abducted heroines and obtuse heroes are so not my thing Yet, I liked this.I read the 2nd book before I picked up this and only convinced myself that I want to read this today, this morning It was like a Cinderella story with a transcontinental setting and a Prince or King UnCharming The hero, Stephen is one angry man So, generally you don t find a HR hero who has anger management issues to the point of being dangerous and borderline abusive and is often dumb as a doornail seriously, he couldn t figure out that he took her virginity and ridiculously stubborn to both the fact that she was a whore and that he was unattractive to women , but here it was acceptable And this only worked because tavern wench Tanya, aka lost betrothed Princess Tatiana, was a badass She s really awesome and strong, while possessing her own set of flaws Considering her situation, I really liked her character and the fact that she didn t give in to Stephen s and his friends vile opinions She acted smart in a bad abduction situation Gawd, I hate that theme, but kudos to her I also liked the secondary characters and Vasili is infuriatingly obnoxious I really want to read the 2nd book again to see his abuse It s so sweet.The one part that was painfully slow was their process of falling in love Stephen is so weird, that he says the dumbest things at the worst times, and it only cause Tanya to protect herself and say bad things back Stephen s personality kinda got better at the end, when they didn t have as much sexual tension and emotional turmoil, so I guess it does redeem itself.Worth a read, but you must want to read an abduction themed HR or you won t enjoy it

    Let me sum this up quickly before I dive into my mini rant soon to be King from Eastern Europe is betrothed to a princess who was sent to America when she was 5 months old to escape a blood feud with some crazy mother f ers Said STBK soon to be king travels to Mississippi to find said princess who was to have been raised in the lap of luxury to come home and bear him an heir while he continues to bone every chick in the joint Imagine his surprise when tragedy had struck and this woman e Let me sum this up quickly before I dive into my mini rant soon to be King from Eastern Europe is betrothed to a princess who was sent to America when she was 5 months old to escape a blood feud with some crazy mother f ers Said STBK soon to be king travels to Mississippi to find said princess who was to have been raised in the lap of luxury to come home and bear him an heir while he continues to bone every chick in the joint Imagine his surprise when tragedy had struck and this woman ended up as a Cinderella esque slave in a bar tavern to a man who beat her But now he has to get her from Mississippi to Cardiniaagainst her willOh, did I mention she is the most gorgeous woman in the world but hides her beauty.And she is a virgin.Oh, and did I mention that the STBK has a couple of scars on his face like, not a big deal that he totally needs some therapy about.So this is really a cross between Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast with a makeover scene from Miss Congeniality.With a touch of 50 Shades because STBK gets angry and likes to work out that aggression between the sheets.Whatever.Up until this point, I am not really judging anyone That is actually a premise I can get behind Minus the 20 year old virgin part Seriously At this point, I remember what my problem is with a lot of historical romance and hence my preference for contemporary romance For some inexplicable reason, historical romance writers seem to forget that no actually means no and portray rape as something that is okay if the guy is hot I am all about romanticizing sex simultaneous orgasms Let s have a show of hands how often THAT happens but I am not all about romanticizing rape And it bothers me that books do this says the woman who is queuing up the next Diana Gabaldon book I get it It is symbolic of a woman s unacknowledged need to be dominated by a strong man It starts as what we call date rape in college but morphs into true love It is rape as the key to unlocking a woman s tightly crossed legs so she can recognize her sexuality.It s bullshit.And, in case you couldn t tell, it really annoys me.Call me feminist Call me overreactive Call me what you will But I love me a good, descriptive, erotic sex scene but think it is way better when the woman isn t opposed to the sex and forced into it before discovering what she has been missing all these years.Okay Rant over Please resume your daily lives

    The first in the Cardinia s Royal Family series by Johanna Lindsey I loved this book I thought it was hilarious Tanya Tatiana works in her guardian s tavern with high hopes of inheriting it someday All hope of that dies when a group of men come and kidnap her to take back to their country After all she is their long lost princess and its time for her to take her place by the prince s side.

    One of my favoritesThis is one of my favorite books I have read it several times and it just keeps getting better The heroine is really a princess but doesn t know it She works in a tavern and had been mistreated her whole life She is really beautiful but camouflages it by using makeup and ashes The H is a prince who has to find his betrothed in America She was sent there for her protection as a baby but unfortunately her caretaker died and she was brought up by a mean man and his wife Sh One of my favoritesThis is one of my favorite books I have read it several times and it just keeps getting better The heroine is really a princess but doesn t know it She works in a tavern and had been mistreated her whole life She is really beautiful but camouflages it by using makeup and ashes The H is a prince who has to find his betrothed in America She was sent there for her protection as a baby but unfortunately her caretaker died and she was brought up by a mean man and his wife She was never told she was a princess So she doesn t believe them when they come for her The H has scars and thinks he s too ugly for beautiful women He likes the h at first because he thinks she s ugly too but if course she s not He also thinks she s a slattern and could be bought with coins All kinds of misunderstandings ensue and she tries to run away several times I loved their interactions and I especially loved the heroine s personality There is an ex mistress involved and she shows up in the book several times I hated that but it plays out well The H was smoking hot to me Loved him for the most part Like I said I have read this over five or six times It s a good historical romance and a definite favorite of mine

    Ok in truthfulness I didn t read the whole story I could barely get into this one I just didn t enjoy it This was one of her higher rated books too.Our boy genius hero We meet our hero first, and after the first scene with his father, we meet the evil OW the mistress and they have sex offpage It s not descriptive But boy is this lady ever presentabout that later.Hero has scars and he is obsessively insecure about them We learn he uses sex to get rid of his anger so mature , and Ok in truthfulness I didn t read the whole story I could barely get into this one I just didn t enjoy it This was one of her higher rated books too.Our boy genius hero We meet our hero first, and after the first scene with his father, we meet the evil OW the mistress and they have sex offpage It s not descriptive But boy is this lady ever presentabout that later.Hero has scars and he is obsessively insecure about them We learn he uses sex to get rid of his anger so mature , and he is gullible enough that said mistress can manipulate him to think she gets bruised during his rougher sex sessions so that he buys her jewelry And why should any smart man not be wary of the mistress words about his fianc e she is only the woman who s about to takeimportance in your life than the mistress and become queen With such a king, I worry for the future of their nation.Too much drama The drama and misunderstanding continues through out the book The mistress is there, ever present, all the way until the end of the book In fact she appears in the last chapter of the book, in a confrontation w the heroine Why Hero does refuse her advances by Chapter 38 of a 49 chapter book I just don t know why she needs to keep popping up like a bad case of acne Enough of that plot line.In fact, the hero finds out his fianc e was a chaste virgin after all in thelast chapter, in the very last scene no, our boy genius did not figure it out when he had sex with her At the same time, he also finally understands that she doesn t mind his scars either And they confess their love for their HEA I wish that the main characters had resolve each of their issues misunderstanding gradually throughout the book, instead of suddenly like the author just had to wrap up the story It would have shown us they can communicate honestly with each other Instead the author left us with mostly angry conversations and accusations between the two and not enough sweet to make up for it None of her books have an epilogue but in this case especially it was definitely missing.I m beginning to think I read all of JL s good books already That would be disappointing At a Glance Safety warnings view spoiler Hero has mistress in the story There is sex off page with this OW who is scheming to break them apart The mistress is in the story until the end hide spoiler HEA view spoiler Yes hide spoiler

    Joanna Lindsey has a wonderful way of spinning a tale Tanya is a serving girl in a tavern in America and doesn t know that she is really a princess from the European country of Cardinia That s weird How can she not know Well because she was taken away from that country as an infant, so she would not me murdered like the rest of her royal family She was betrothed to the Prince of Cardinia, Stefan, at birth so he is given the task of finding her and taking her back to Cardinia so they can mar Joanna Lindsey has a wonderful way of spinning a tale Tanya is a serving girl in a tavern in America and doesn t know that she is really a princess from the European country of Cardinia That s weird How can she not know Well because she was taken away from that country as an infant, so she would not me murdered like the rest of her royal family She was betrothed to the Prince of Cardinia, Stefan, at birth so he is given the task of finding her and taking her back to Cardinia so they can marry.When he finds her working in a tavern, her assumes she is a whore and is quite rude to her She has lived a very poor existence so her clothes are hand me downs, also she has always covered her face with makeup to appear to be an old hag so that men would not bother her Since Stefan s face is scarred from a wolf attack, he is happy that Tanya is ugly.When Tanya meets Stefan and his guards, she does not believe their story that she is a princess and they are taking her to Cardinia She thinks they are stealing her to sell her and gives them a hard time about it all Tanya was a strong woman who was used to taking control so she was not going to be made to look foolish by believing their fairy tale.Stefan has been a prince all his life so he takes it for granted that he gets anything he wants He didn t know how to handle Tanya s disobedience He does have a terrible temper and has never been called on it because of his position which doesn t help Tanya but she learns to deal with it.Finally Tanya believes that she is a princess and starts to care for Stefan Stefan cares for Tanya too but is so concerned about his scarred face that he doesn t think a beautiful woman would be interested in him By this time he has seen Tanya without her makeup and sees how beautiful she really is.I really enjoyed the ending of this book
