4 Star Read!!!
Oh my Geez! What is happening and who is behind it all! Yeah that is what I was yelling at when I hit the end of The Princess. I loved The B*stard, and was still on the edge reading The Princess. When Lisa announced she was making this a trilogy, I knew there was going to be a lot we were going to be needed after this book and that is the answer to it all! Will Eric and Harper get a HEA? Or are they doomed?
The Princess kind of keeps you in a loop of the unknown. The questions that were swirling in my head made me try to figure out the truth. But I am at a loss. I really do not know what to expect with the 3rd book. I am still hanging off The Princess and need to wrap my head around this story. The Princess is a great romance suspense that will have you on the edge through the very last page!
The second book in the Filthy Trilogy – Eric and Harper’s story continues…
He’s the bastard of the empire, a savant, a genius, and a self-made success. He left it all behind, but he came back for her.
Their passion is a flame that ignites more than their bond. It ignites secrets, lies, and a puzzle that once solved, will shake them to the core.
You know one deep, dark secret, but you do not yet know anywhere near everything.
I forget everything but him. How can I not? He owns me. That was my fear, but I don’t feel fear now. No fear at all. But there are other emotions, a swell of unnamed emotions overwhelming me. We’re in his territory, his home, the danger and darkness of this night, driving confessions and intimacy to a whole new level. “I’m not just going to fuck you, Harper,” Eric promises. “I’m going to make love to you.”
I spoke that word to him, so hearing it on his lips shouldn’t send shockwaves through me, but somehow it does. It shouldn’t make my chest expand with fear that I didn’t feel moments before, but it does. I both want him to love me and fear the moment he does. With love comes real pain when he tells me to walk away and gives me a shove when he doesn’t really follow, because he decides the bastard and the princess can’t survive.
My walls erect. I need to protect myself. “What happened to fucking the princess and leaving her behind?”
“We just had this conversation. I’m not leaving you again.”
“And yet you told me to leave.”
“I did,” he says. “But I’m a bastard, remember? And not just any bastard. I’m the one who wants you too damn much now to do what’s right. You run. I’ll run faster. I’ll come for you.”
Heat rushes up my neck. “Fucking me is safe,” I whisper. “Fucking me is—”
“Fucking you is perfect,” he says. “And I will fuck you, Harper. Every way I can think of and every day, but right now, I’m going to show you more than the bastard. I’m going to make love to you.” His lips part mine, his tongue stroking deep, stroking long, exploring, and the demand I’d felt in him when he’d snapped is nowhere to be found. There is just this sultry, sexy, caress of his tongue that seduces me and tears down my walls.
I am his to do with as he pleases. I am his to please or otherwise. I think he really will break my heart. I think he knows it, too, but it’s too late to turn back. We’re on a path together that must be traveled, no matter where it leads.
