Publisher's Summary

Taylor is a genius when it comes to computers, but understanding the opposite sex is beyond her. Because she always fumbles her flirtations, she needs help in finding her Prince Charming. So when her friend, Gretchen, sets her up as a tour guide for a new guy in town, she says yes despite her misgivings. She just doesn't expect Mr. Charming to actually be royalty.

A faction in his country wants him to be king, but Loch has no intention of taking the crown. To keep from being named as the next successor, he hatches a scheme to marry a totally unacceptable American woman. Quirky Taylor seems like the perfect person for the job, until Loch realizes he likes more about her than her ability to keep him off the throne.

When Loch's secret schemes come out, his chance of happiness with Taylor are blown - unless he can find a way to get the nerdy object of his affection to believe she's truly the queen of his heart.

Opposite INTERESTS Don't Attract

I'm going harsh on this one and I hate to do it because I recently discovered this author and I've been LOVING her other books. They're fun, sexy, and the characters usually pop. But this book failed from the start (and I'll confess I did not finish it). Here's why:

Opposites attract can be a fun dynamic, but the notion is based on opposite but complimentary personality traits that each somehow complete the other. For instance, "In the Wrong Billionaire's Bed" by the same author had an uptight heroine who needed help becoming vulnerable and a playboy hero who needed an anchor. Worked great.

Opposite INTERESTS, on the other hand, just mean you have nothing to keep you together once you get past the great sex. I've already glimpsed the HEA, and it ends it divorce once they get it all out of their system. The real question is whether this happens before or after they start a family and whether the kids get dragged into it. Or maybe the kids distract them so much that they don't figure it out until they're empty nesters looking at one another going, "Okay,, now what?"

It probably doesn't help matters that I myself am a geek. Of all the heroines in this series, this is the one that should have resonated with me the most. All the scifi references, gaming references .... that's my world. And I gotta say, while I get that Thor's hot (I mean really really hot), I just can't imagine myself ever being with someone who doesn't share at least some of my geeky interests. It's not sexy.

I do apologize for the harshness of this review and for the fact that I'm leaving it after only reading about a quarter of the book. I just couldn't keep going. The narrator, as always, did a lovely job. Unlike others, I actually like it when a single narrator (male or female) reads an entire book rather than having two narrators swap back and forth for male/female chapters. I find alternating narrators distracting because the hero/heroine don't sound the same in the various chapters.

Despite this review, I can't recommend this AUTHOR highly enough. She's rekindled my faith in romance. Every author is allowed a dud. :)

Sweet Funny Lovable Characters

The Bride and Billionaire books by Jessica Clare put together the billionaire and the most unlikely of women. Seeming opposites love blooms, each learns and grows and the dialogue is funny, sweet and entertaining.
So much fun and light, with a little touch of angsts, but so little it is just a fun listen.
Jillian Macie has a sweet, naive voice perfect for the women and does a nice job with the men...perfect pace, tone and emotions!
Will listen to all the books in the Romance Pkg and perhaps buy the ones I particularly love to listen to again and again.

Love is in the air

I love all of her books,. I have been listening nonstop. They all have a cohesive storyline and lots of SEX. All of the billionaire books go together and make you want to listen to the rest of the series.
