I found this story very confusing. I didn't read the first one and maybe I should have. The presentation on Kindle was horrendous. Spaces between lines and words. I didn't feel the story had any real substance just the main character Marissa always wanting to be laid or lay someone. I realize that may have been the way it was when you are the King's concubine, but a little story would have been more enjoyable. Finally around the end, the story picked up. I love historic romances with sex, but I like a story with it. I really didn't enjoy it and couldn't wait to finish it.
*I received a free copy of this book and this is my honest review.*
