Pretty, flighty Daisy Devreaux can either go to jail or marry the mystery man her father has chosen for her. Arranged marriages don't happen in the modern world, so how did the irrepressible Daisy find herself in this fix?
Alex Markov, as humorless as he is deadly handsome, has no intention of playing the loving bridegroom to a spoiled little feather-head with champagne tastes. He drags Daisy from her uptown life to a broken down traveling circus and sets out to tame her to his ways.
But this man without a soul has met his match in a woman who's nothing but heart. Before long, passion will send them flying sky high without a safety net... risking it all in search of a love that will last forever.
Wow! I started reading this book some time ago. Not only that I didn’t like, but it helped me sleep too, as every night I read 10 pages and fall asleep. As y’all might know by now, these aren’t good signs for me and anyone might consider just dropping the book. But something kept me from doing it. I had previously read 2 other books of SEP and I enjoyed them so much, so I had to give her more credit. Thank God I did that! I knew she wouldn’t disappoint me (that badly). 🙂
Just pass the first quarter of the book and I promise it will grow on you. Or at least that’s what happened to me. It was intriguing, since I have never read a book where the action takes place in a circus and nevertheless with the main characters forced to get married by the father of the bride.
In the end I really liked it. I think it’s interesting and it’s very much worth reading.
