    One thought on “Wicked in Your Arms”

    1. Read this review on Demon Lover's Books & More4.5I got this for free the other day and thought I’d flip through to see if it was something I’d like. Within minutes I was hooked. I read this in one night, on my phone because my husband was asleep next to me.The crown prince of Maladonia Sevastian Maksimi is being told by his aging grandfather the king, that after a decade of war and bloodshed, his people need something to look forward to. He wants to see Sev settled down and married (pref [...]

    2. Sophie Jordan is not one of the best writers out there, but she is a great storyteller and I will definitely be reading more by her.The Forgotten Princess is about Grier, an illegitimate woman who does not fit the mold of a proper lady. She loves the outdoors, can ride like the devil, and prefers to speak her mind. In short, she is earthy and the furthest thing from boring. Sevastian is a crowned prince looking for a suitable and wealthy bride for his kingdom. Grier is not really suitable for th [...]

    3. WICKED IN YOUR ARMS by Sophie JordanBook #1 in the Forgotten Princesses Series07/11 - HarperCollins Publishers - Mass Market Paperback, 384 pagesAre we able to overcome the expectations set for us?When you are born into life with no discernible lineage, trying to find a good match becomes close to impossible. Despite the fact that her father is ridiculously rich Miss Grier Hadley is viewed as his illegitimate daughter and the large dowry he is offering is the only reason she is invited to partie [...]

    4. I'm extremely disappointed with this book. It had a lot of potential, in terms of plot and character, but it didn't live up to it.First of all, I got tired of the amount of times Sevastian said or thought Grier was ineligible and that she wasn't good enough to be his wife and, consequently, the future queen.As such, I thought the romance came up short. How can you feel some sort of enchantment toward the love story if the hero thinks the heroine is nothing but a lowly peasant and a bastard most [...]

    5. Wicked in Your Arms5 StarsAt the end of years of civil war, Prince Sevatian Maksimi’s country is in dire need of stability and he is determined to do his duty and marry a suitably well-bred heiress. Grier Hadley, the illegitimate daughter of one of London’s wealthiest yet most unsavory underworld denizens, has nothing to recommend her except for an enormous dowry. Grier and Sev couldn’t be more wrong for each other, but that fact cannot stop the undeniable passion and desire that spark eve [...]

    6. Wicked In Your Arms by Sophie Jordan opens with a prologue in which the male love interest, Sevastian Maksimi discovers he is the new heir to the throne of Maldania, a fictional country, after his brother dies in war. It is Sevastian’s duty to his country to find a bride among the English ton, preferably one who will bear many children. Grier Hadley is a bastard, but her father, Jack, is super rich and provides Grier with a generous dowry, as long as she marries a titled man. However, the ton [...]

    7. This was so good. All I know is that I need to look into some more Sophie Jordan books! Grabbed me from page one and I couldn't put it down.

    8. To say Sophie Jordan is my hero is an understatement. She gets to write a highly successful YA paranormal romance trilogy, sexy historical romance books, and paranormal romance books (wowza!). Now why is she my hero? Because what goes on in that head of hers makes me blush and I like it!!While I haven’t read many historical romances, I have to say I really enjoyed this one. The beginning seemed to go on a little too long with the differences between Grier and the Prince. However, I liked the s [...]

    9. Oh Sophie Jordan, you enamored me with Firelight and steamed up my nights with Wicked in Your Arms. It’s been quite a long time since I read a romance and when this one showed up on my doorstep I did a little happy dance. I knew I loved Jordan’s teen writing and I couldn’t wait to see how her prose was used in the romance genre.Sevastian seems to be a foppish prat, concerned only with finding a well bred girl to marry and bed down with heirs for his kingdom. It is after all his duty. Grier [...]

    10. This book was actually going perfectly fine until well over halfway through. The hero might have been an alphahole, but at least he wasn't randomly popping out of a corner and jumping on the heroine. Then, bam! He GOES INTO HER ROOM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT and starts taking off her clothes and his as well and says that YES DEAR, WE MUST CONSUMMATE OUR RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE THERE IS NO TIME LEFT. Wow, what a stellar catch, and how UNCREEPY. *eyeroll* I liked the heroine well enough, but god, th [...]

    11. DNF by chapter 2. Heroine and hero meet and sparks fly because heroine overhears hero saying some not so nice things about her. She pours lemonade over his head. Sounds great, right? But then in chapter 2 heroine comes upon hero boinking a married woman, and then hero and heroine hide in a closet because married woman's husband comes upon her. Hero gets very friendly with heroine in closet even after he's been diddling with another woman. Heroine gets all hot and bothered.Sorry, not into the tro [...]

    12. Most fantastic villain death I've read in a long time gains this formulaic piece an extra star. Review to come.

    13. 4.5 Star. Really enjoyed the heroine standing up for herself. Could have been better IF the book was longer. Not that it was a short read. This author just likes big font's.

    14. What a fantastic read! This book really surprised me. I wasn't expecting to love it this much. It's my first read by this author and I will definitely continue reading her books. What I enjoyed most is the sentiment the main characters had as their relationship changed from loathing each other to admiration and then to love. Similar to Pride And Prejudice. We have an illegitimate heroine with a large dowry and a prince in need of a wealthy bride. Due to his station, he views the heroine as an un [...]

    15. Originally posted at smexybooks/2011/08/revFavorite Quote: “Do you mean to say you’re considering me as a prospective wife? Heavens! Have the stars truly shined down on me? Could I be so blessed?”Crown Prince Sevastian Maksimi, one of Europe’s most eligible bachelors, must find a rich wife of impeccable breeding and produce a heir in order to help his country heal from the devastation of war. When Ms. Grier Hadley finds herself eavesdropping on the prince and his cousin, she is mortified [...]

    16. I just really wavered on how to rate thisOn one hand, I thought the plot arc of Wicked in your Arms is a good one. There is a concise story here with all the classical trappings - Hero meets heroine, Hero and Heroine fall in love, Heroine meets Villain, Villain is defeated. No real plot holes, characterization was good and their motivation is sound. When a story doesn't work for me or drags, the pacing or plotting of one of those things mentioned above is usually missing. It's a point in this bo [...]

    17. Grier Hadley is the headstrong illegitimate daughter of Jack, who is very rich from being some kind of king of the underground who is looking to become part of London society by marrying off his illegitimate daughters to titled gentlemen. It seems more can be learned about that situation by reading Wicked Nights With a Lover although this book can be a read alone and is part of a new series, I think somewhere it should state that the books are tied together. I felt as if I was missing something [...]

    18. I loved Grier. Under other circumstances, I think she would have been considered an Original; yet because of the Ton's rigid opinions on birth, even her father's wealth can't buy her more than a grudging seat at Society's best tables. (Her father made his money from gambling hells and has no refinement to speak of; she does, but she and her half-sister Cleo were born out of wedlock.)There's a more than a bit of the Elizabeth-Darcy vibe going on with her initial relationship with Sevastian, and t [...]

    19. This is just a quick review of a great book! Prince Sevastian Maksimi knows that following a long, grueling war that leaves his elder brother dead, he must quickly take a wealthy bride and produce an heir to help bolster his counties spirits. He travels to London where a cousin of his lives and sets out to find a nice, docile wealthy bride. Unfortunately for him, he is overheard saying some very rude things about Grier Hadley and in her bold, confident manner, she dumps her lemon water on him! A [...]

    20. I wish had a bomb rating in addition to the star ratings. Not because this book deserved a bomb, but because some of my one-star reads are so horrible that one star is too generous, while others (like this one) aren't enjoyable, but also aren't stomp-on-it-rip-it-into-tiny-pieces-then-burn-it bad.That's my long-winded way of saying that while I didn't like this book, and it greatly annoyed me for much of the time I was reading it, it's not horrible. I just found the plot so boring (how many tim [...]

    21. Oh, man. Grier's stoicism in the face of the BRUTAL way the society ladies (and men) treated her for her illegitimacy kind of killed me. She ignores it as best she can, but the words still hurt. She hates the balls and city life after the freedom she'd known on her own, but she feels she has no other choice.Oh, Grier.I didn't blame her at all for trying out a few kisses on Sev. Yeah, he was kind of douchey to her when they first met (well, when he was saying unflattering things and she was hidin [...]

    22. A great story. I had a hard time putting it down. Sevastian is a prince from a foreign land in London to find a suitable bride. His country just ended a long 10 year war in which he fought and lost many men including his heir-apparent brother. Not the task of bringing his country back to life is falling on him. His grandfather, the King, is his only remaining relative. And Sev wants only to make him happy.Grier is the illegitimate daughter of a Welsh nobleman. She just recently has been brought [...]

    23. I was a bit frustrated with the first half of the book because the characters kept repeating themselves. He's a prince in need of a suitable bride, she's the bastard daughter of the owner of a gaming hell, completely unsuitable. She's constantly being snubbed and rebuffed by members of the ton. She doesn't want to be there. She wants to go live in the country. She hides. She's fascinated by the prince, angry that he sees her as unsuitable, but realizes she IS unsuitable. He's fascinated by her, [...]

    24. I liked Grier (hated her name), and her Welsh background. I wish the author had given us more of an insight into her life pre-London, other than the occasional mention. I also liked Sev, although he was a bit of an ass in the beginning of the book. Still, Grier gave him something he was missing - an equal. She may not have been royalty, or even legitimately Ton, but she was leagues ahead of her peers, and I'm glad he finally wised up and recognized it. The ending delved into the predictable, whi [...]

    25. I didn't realize this book was going to have graphic love scenes. I don't usually like thosebut the rest of the plot wasn't cheesy like some of those other romance novels can be! It was a really amazing story and I was completely taken in by the rich, romantic world of old England! The writing was beautiful! I felt swept away to another time! I totally loved it!

    26. Flat out deliciously fun HR! Take one bastard daughter with an enormous dowry and one prince having to wed a suitable bride, through in dislike, insults, chemistry galore and let the sparks fly. This was a one sitting read for me and a great time!

    27. It's sexy, and it knows it! Seriously, I really enjoyed this one and plan on checking out Sophie's other adult novels. For adult fans of Sophie Jordan's Draki series, I highly recommend reading this. Woohoo, steamy, steamy, rawr!
