No one blends humor and sensuality like New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands in this captivating story of feuding nobles forced to marry…and destined to fall in love.

Love thy neighbor, ’tis said. A fine idea, except when the neighbor in question is Lord Holden. Lady Helen Tiernay has complained frequently about his treatment of his people. Too frequently perhaps, for the king intends to curb their constant bickering by ordering them to wed. Helen can’t refuse a royal decree, but she’ll do everything possible to drive away her devilishly attractive husband-to-be.

Holden has faced all manner of horrors on the battlefield. But marriage to “the tyrant of Tiernay” is still a worrying prospect—until he glimpses Helen in the flesh. What flesh it is…soft, lush, made for his touch. If she weren’t so intent on thinking up devious ways to prevent consummating their bond, Helen would see how perfect they are together, and that a marriage begun as enemies can turn to absolute pleasure.

I love reading Lynsay Sands books. There is just something about them. Her characters just jump right of the pages. I love laughing and enjoying her books. So when I saw this one come up for review I knew that I had to read. 

I was also very shocked that I missed reading it when it first came out! How the hell did that happen?

We'll guess what? It didn't. After I read the first chapter I knew right away that I already read it. Of course I read it again because...why not? I love her books and it was just as fun the second time as the first. 

This story cracked me up! How these two acted towards each is pure fun. Well at least for us. For them it was a frustrating. They really didn't like each other and worked really hard to make each other unhappy. 

Silly thing was it was for all the wrong reasons. 

Their enemy wasn't each other. Of course that took them a while to figure out. Good for us, bad for them. If you haven't yet read this one you really should. You'll love the humor and wonderful love story in it. It was so worth the second read.

If you've read Bliss or any other book by Lynsay Sands I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
