The debtIonanthe will leave her freedom at the castle doors Ancient laws demand an eye for an eye she must pay the price for her sister's mistakeThe paymentRece. I ve read a lot of Penny Jordan books and I agree with the another reviewer of this book featured on reviews she was a great writer who wrote thoughtful well written books which have brought her many readers a lot of pleasure However this is not one of themThe book begins with the ridiculous premise that Prince Max becomes the new ruler of the fiercely patriarchal and basically third world dictatorship led principality called Fortenegro Everyone lives in poverty herding sheep not educating their children tugging forelocks to the rich elite and stoning women to death in their free time As an act of vengeance for the fact that his first wife cheated on him and failed to provide an heir he gets to demand the body of her sister for his new bride She either has to marry him or become the next live entertainment and get stoned to deathFrom this unpromising and distinctly unromantic setting Max and Ionanthe are thrust together fall in love and end up thrusting together uite a lot sod the peasants No but it s okay because Max is basically an enlightened dictator and he s going to bring euality to the peasants when he manages to get out of bed with Ionanthe and Ionanthe is going to fight to bring peace and justice there too when she eventually gets out of bed tooAs if hurrying to regain lost romantic ground the latter part of the story is set in a fairytale castle where they get snowed in for Christmas There s an awful lot sensuality in this story than some of the others of Jordan s works and it s not a great book for it There s a very uncomfortable scene with some figs which it pains me to recall Consider Max s fantasies Even without closing his eyes and focusing his senses he could imagine the silky softness of her hair against his own skin its scent her scent heated by desire to release its erotic frangrance into the air filling his nostrils Her head would be thrown back against his arm her eyes a passion glazed glitter between thick dark lashes her lips swollen from their shared kisses and eagerly parted proclaiming her pleasure and her desire for as she smiled invitingly up at him What a load of rubbish To be frank PrinceDictator Max has been reading far too many Mills and BoonsMy overall feeling was that Jordan had attemped an overly ambitious attempt at romance in a too serious setting and it just hasn t worked In short she should have stuck to nannies and secretaries falling for their bosses in the typing poolThere are a few romantic lines towards the end of the book but generally it doesn t sit too comfortably together what with the peasants and all the undernourished children running about I ve got to say this is one of the worst Penny Jordan books I ve ever read and I normally love all her stuff v disappointing It left me feeling that like Max I d read one too many Mills and Boons as well

    I was pleasantly surprised by this because royalty romances are not my preferred cup of tea sheik romances are the exception The heroes are almost always extremely arrogant Max however was not an insufferable jerk or as ruthless as the blurb described He had a good heart and wanted only the best for his country and people With the big exception of forcing Ionanthe into marriage I never felt Max lorded his po

    Unlikable characters and a predictable story line made this a DNF for me From the beginning the interaction with the hero and heroine was absurd I managed to get halfway through it before I gave up
