About the Author
USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

I liked the plot but I can't say I loved the characters. The queen was selfish planning to get pregnant without considering how it might affect anyone else. Mauro had a "poor me" attitude because of his childhood. Even with the ending being very fast, it did leave me with a smile. If you enjoy stories about royalty, you should give this book a try.

Mauro was a child of poverty and discrimination: brought up in the slums, rejected by his father and having to make the world work for him. He has been a young man, who for a brief period was willing to trade his body for a warm bed, food and even money. He’s now an incredibly successful billionaire who enjoys a life of apparent debauchery although quite frankly I’m not sure how much of that was real and how much was manufactured for the press. He certainly gave it all up pretty fast!
Astrid, the virgin Queen who decides pregnancy is the only way for her to beat her council of misogynistic men is a fabulous heroine. She eases her way into Mauro’s Club and they seduce each other and then she leaves. However, he finds her and turns all her plans upside down.
I loved their story and the way their relationship developed. Astrid owned her sexuality rather than retreating from it and Mauro revealed his determination to give his child what he had never had as well the fantastic connection between him and Astrid.
I’ve seen some reviews which are very negative which puzzles me - but then we are all so different that it’s inevitable that we won’t always have the same tastes and preferences. I thoroughly recommend this one and the only reason it’s 4 stars rather than 5 is that I would have liked a much longer epilogue than the brief taster we were given.
