While Grier Hadley is the daughter of an unsavory character, her father's fortune affords her a large dowry that would make any suitor swoon. Enter Prince Sevastian Maksimi, who is hot on the trail of a respectable bride-to-be who can give him an heir as well as a hefty dowry. While he knows that she would bring disrepute along with vast fortune, the beautiful and indepent Grier has captured the Prince's attention, and a stolen kiss has him yearning for more.


Will this star-crossed pair find true love against all odds?

Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Sophie recommends:


Her voice, the seeming ease in which she makes a historical heroine so accessible to the modern woman has always left me in awe. Her books are like candy, ease to inhale ... but then you're left regretting that you didn't take it slowly and savor it. The hero in A Rogue by Any Other Name  is one of the best alpha heroes I've ever come across. This could be just another damaged/wicked rake meets spinster tale, but MacLean adds depth and emotion by giving them a complex past. My FAVORITE moment is when the heroine sees him (and the cold-hearted man he has become) for the first time in years, and an exchange follows in which she says, "How sad.... He is gone ..." When the hero asks her who, she replies, all the while gazing at him so her meaning is clear, "My friend." Stop. My. Heart. In that moment I was hooked, anxious for the moment when he becomes not just her friend again, but her lover.

Hello World! Good Morning to all the wonderful people in nookland! I hope all of the mothers have a wonderful weekend and are treated so nice by those that you love.  I am may not be on here as much for I am learning how to quilt and I know alot of people having babies, and I am a night owl not an early bird so.... any way I will keep looking but sharing at the same time as spec may change. 


Have a great weekend and be thankful for the little things in life for that is what ends up making the bigger picture! Hug themwhile they are little and never let the lines of comunication die even when they are snarky teenagers!

As always, thanks for the B&N weekly selection and for all of the other additional lists. 


Hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

Thanks for all the hard work you all do to post free books. I have over 600 books on my Nook. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how long the Nook will be around for. So grab all the free books while you can. Of course, if we don't ever buy anything, that doesn't help BN. There's talk Microsoft may buy it.


Microsoft may be willing to take Nook off Barnes & Noble’s hands for $1 billion

It's a stormy day here best time to curl up with my nook n just read the day away. I am so grateful for the FF selections :smileyhappy: I hope everyone has a great weekend!

If Microsoft buys it, maybe B&N could still be a distributor.  Just a thought . . .


On another note, thanks again as always to everyone who poted titles this morning.  I plan to celebrate a litlle of Mother's day hibernating with my Nook HD reading:smileyhappy:  We just returned from a cruise and my Nook was my constant companion!

Thanks to B&N for another stellar freebie and all who contribute here. I buy books from B&N as well as free ones so I have complete confidence that they will continue to provide their excellent products.

Thank You Thank you Jeremy and B&N what more could a mom like me want to do on mother's day but to spend it reading a great historical romance filled with rakish behavior and lots of Bodice ripping :smileyhappy:
