Livia Lacey came to the house she inherited in London's Cavendish Square with her two friends, Lady Cornelia Dagenham and Lady Aurelia Farnham, to experience the excitement of city life. With Cornelia now happily married, Livia and Aurelia are on their own. But dashing Prince Alex Prokov, a newcomer to London, seems enchanted by Liv the moment they meet. Disarmed by the prince's determined pursuit of her, his exuberant joy of living, and the desires he awakens in her, Liv agrees to marry him. But while night is a time for passionate embraces, Liv discovers that her irresistible husband can be as autocratic as he is extravagantly generous. While Alex balks at Liv's independent ways, he refuses to explain his own comings and goings. When Liv learns one of Alex's secrets she only loves him more. But when she learns the other secret, will she feel wickedly betrayed?

20/12 - Not as good as the first book in the series. I don't like the hero, Alexander Prokov, much at all. He appears to pursue Livia within a few sentences of the start of the first chapter (not counting the prologue). At first I wasn't sure if he was going to be a bad guy attempting to ingratiate himself to Livia in order steal something, information or an object, from her or the house. Even after their marriage, less than half way through the book, he still doesn't seem trustworthy or particularly loving. He uses big gestures to show he cares but, to me, he seems to be attempting to buy her affections - there's more to doing something nice for someone than just spending huge amounts of money. If I was Livia I would want him to do something romantic that he wouldn't have to spend any money on, or at least very little. I also question Feather's choice of naming the hero Alexander and having Czar Alexander feature (in name only) in the book as well. Why not choose another Russian name for the hero instead of having both characters have the same name? Fortunately, most of the time they call Czar Alexander 'the Czar' or 'Emperor,' but still I think it's a bit strange. To be continued...

21/12 - Ok, it's 23:21, past the appointed time for the world to end, so I guess it's <i>not</i> going to end and I'll have to finish this review. I didn't really feel a true connection between Livia and Alex, it all felt forced, especially from Alex's side. I didn't like the end, it seemed rushed and everything was wrapped up quickly but not satisfyingly (that's a word, right?). I thought there were still a lot of loose ends that needed to be cleared up between Alex and Livia and I was left wondering if Feather intended to give the reader a more conclusive conclusion in the final book of the trilogy. Not particularly impressed with this one, hope the next one is better.
