When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn’t until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was.
Prince Alexander of Cambridge.
Royal bad boy.
Exiled heir to the throne.
He isn’t Prince Charming. He’s controlling. He’s demanding. He’s dangerous. And I can’t say no to him.
We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—and as the paparazzi exposes each one, I have to decide just how far I’m willing to go for King and Country.
For readers 18 and up due to mature, erotic scenarios.
“You asked if I would hurt you, Clara. I can’t lie and say that I won’t.”
Geneva Lee has knocked it out of the park with her debut erotic romance, For King and Country. I absolutely fell in love with Alexander and Clara and this book is going on my top reads for 2014.
What I thought would be a predictable story is a highly erotic, beautifully written and surprising story of Clara, an American living in London, who just graduated university and is about to begin a new job in the city. Although she comes from a wealthy family, she lives an unassuming life and prefers to work rather than live off her trust fund. She meets a mysterious, gorgeous and uber-sexy man named Alexander at a friend’s graduation party and is literally swept off her feet.
This is NOT a predictable story. Alexander turns out to be a member of Britain’s Royal Family. Although he is a prince, this is no fairy tale. Alexander is dark, aggressive, dominant and only interested in offering Clara a purely sexual relationship. He clashes with his family and tries to shield Clara from the non-stop paparazzi and tabloid coverage of his every move. They embark on a passionate and VERY steamy affair and literally burn up the pages!
Both Clara and Alexander have painful secrets and trust me, even these are unpredictable. Kudos to the author for coming up with a fresh story line in the erotic romance genre! Alexander tries to warn Clara away but she is drawn to him and the explosive sexual chemistry they share. He awakens her sexuality but boy, does he ever come with baggage. The supporting characters are all fantastic, and I loved (and hated!) each and every one. Clara and Alexander literally have to wade through a viper’s nest in order to be together.
For King and Country is a deliciously hot and sexy book and an amazing debut by Geneva Lee. My heart broke a little for both Alexander and Clara and I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series, In His Majesty’s Service!
