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.

Just to second Sophie's recommendation, Sarah MacLean is writing excellent historical romances right now, if that's your thing (and if you're looking for an entree into the genre Sarah is an excellent jumping-off point).  The next book after Rogue is One Good Earl Deserves a Lover - and it's probably even better than Rogue - with the third book (No Good Duke Goes Unpunished) due out in November.

Microsoft became partners with B&N about a year ago.  The rumor and/or news story today is incorrect.  B&N will still have the e-reader, it just won't be an android reader.  I learned this today at my local

Microsoft already has about a 17% stake in the Nook.  My understanding is that Barnes & Noble has already separated the store from the Nook device so they could participate in the international market.  Barnes & Noble isn't an international brand.  If Microsoft does end up controlling 100%, the device would still work, our content would still be on the device, & the Nook store would remain open (unless Microsoft decided to scrap the whole system).  Since Nook has secured so many movie licensing deals, hopefully, Microsoft won't do that.
