    1 thought on “A Bride for His Majesty's Pleasure”

    1. Man, I got so excited when I read the blurb for this book. Sadly, I was a bit blah about it. This is not a bad book. It's pretty good in fact, but it failed to come to life for me. I felt like there was way too much internal dialog, and too little action. Don't get me wrong, I love being inside the character's head, but I needed to have some 'doing' to go with it. There were some parts I really liked. Such as the delayed wedding night. "Phew!" I guess he showed her what to do with her passionles [...]

    2. I've read a lot of Penny Jordan books and I agree with the another reviewer of this book (featured on reviews); she was a great writer who wrote thoughtful well-written books which have brought her many readers a lot of pleasure. However, this is not one of them.The book begins with the ridiculous premise that Prince Max becomes the new ruler of the fiercely patriarchal, and basically third world dictatorship led principality called Fortenegro. Everyone lives in poverty, herding sheep, not educ [...]

    3. DNF The heroine was too stubborn and obnoxious for me. She snipes at the H constantly, in her mind if not out loud, and far too often to his face. I don't mind forced marriage settings, IF both characters are deserving of each other. In centuries past not many people were lucky enough to marry for love anyway. In this case, however, I wanted to toss Ionanthe to the mobs screaming for her death.

    4. Unlikable characters and a predictable story line made this a DNF for me. From the beginning the interaction with the hero and heroine was absurd. I managed to get halfway through it before I gave up.

    5. Sebenarnya tidak ada yang salah dengan buku ini. Premisnya lebih menarik, setidaknya cukup menarik buatku. Tapi yang aku sesali adalah, terlalu banyak pembicaraan antara si hero atau heroine dengan diri mereka sendiri. Dan itu bisa lebih dari satu lembar. Membosankan buatku. Aku me-skip sebagian besar. Bahkan ada beberapa bagian yang hanya aku baca dialognya saja. Belum lagi praduga-praduga antara satu sama lain yang sangat menyebalkan. Aku jadi ingin menjitak kedua tokoh utama karena praduga me [...]

    6. Max is the ruler of a very antiquated country and after his wife dies with another man, the people of his country demand that her sister pay the price of honor. So, Ionanthe, the sister, is trapped into marrying Max and providing him with an heir. She decides she's willing if only to conceive a son whom she will raise to be an enlightened ruler who will change things for her country. But what she doesn't realize is that Max is already that enlightened ruler. Ionanthe was ridiculous. Straight up [...]

    7. I was pleasantly surprised by this because royalty are not my normal cup of tea (sheiks are the exception). The heroes are almost always extremely arrogant. Max, however, was not an insufferable jerk or as ruthless as the blurb described. He had a good heart, wanting only the best for his country and others. With the exception of forcing Ionanthe into marriage, I never felt Max lorded his position of power over her. Ionanthe was a sensitive and insecure heroine, but not overly so. I found her in [...]

    8. First book ever where i felt sorry for the heroHeroin has to marry the brother-in-law because her sister cheated on her husband. The heroine has an inferior complex believing that everyone likes her sister more than her. Set in an unbelievable setting - an island ruled by a prince who has honourable vision for his country but marrying sister-in-law as revenge to please his peopleyou actually dislike the heroine, she's spoiled, with a real complex of inferiority and she judge the people around he [...]

    9. There is something different about this familiar tale. There's this restrained quality that both the hero and heroine have that made their passion even more combustible when finally ignited. I tried to read this title twice before and couldn't get past the prologue but this morning it was the right moment. I can see where it's not the typical Presents royal bride story, but there is more here than just it's stereotypical conventions. Both characters' devotion to philanthropy never felt forced or [...]

    10. My first Penny Jordan. How do I say thisI feel that each sentence is too long and complex. While they mean to describe the situation, they end up annoying me. Despite that, I like how the writer portrays misunderstanding. No, it's not the usual "cruel hero, misunderstood heroine". I like that they both misundertand one another. At some point, I even pity the hero and almost snapped at the heroine. Oh, and it feels more like a historical than harlequin to me.

    11. Insta-sex, insta-mistrust and insta-love. Stop thinking/having/agonising over sex and go help the poor people! !!

    12. MY FIRST EVER BOOK. I REMEMBER BEING SUPER CRAZY ABOUT THE STORYLINE. ALTHOUGH I DIDN'T LIKE THE WAY IT ENDED. MARATHON READ.

    13. Got a little tiresome with the "oh, he's X" and "She's such a conniving X"but the redemption was lovely and the chemistrywowser.

    14. Helps to pass the time but not worth to purchase at full price Something's missing in this novel Seems like there were parts that were cut-off
