There are some elements I really loved in the story and some that really bothered me, so I m doing reviewer math and giving this three stars.
What I liked The worldbuilding The courtesan s wing of the palace was practically a character in and of itself It is featured in the prologue where the hero and his sister find it as children And then the heroine and her retinue from the secret organiza This book has a prologue AND an epilogue That alone brought me untold joy I love the peek into the story at the start and the happily ever after bit at the end Harlequin s rarely have prologue and epilogues any That alone earned this book winning marks Then the prologue grabbed me by the um bits and pulled me willingly into the the story It was fabulous A great start to the book and it just improves from there I LOVED Sera She s trained to be a courtesan and so muchShe s extremely well educated, very sophisticated, is trained I Several forms of fighting styles, can fit into any social event and can plan one better than most event planners, was the CFO of a major worldwide charity organization but was taught to be subservient to the man she was gifted to Yup The shipped her off to the H, King Augustus as a pressie He was horrified at the She was my dream heroine incredibly beautiful, smart, intelligent, well educated, has compassion and martial arts expert She was not queen till the ene but untouched as the title indicated He was not cruel but morally strict view spoiler Lord knows I didn t ask for you, but you ve come here labelled as my courtesan and I will cut the hand off anyone who touches you No kissing No sex No flirting with any of my employees Are we clear Above alldon t tempt me He was so yummy like a todler who doesn t play with his toy but don t want anybody else to play it However, he is a man, what can I expect Lol He didn t know what he d do if she liked it greedy and rough, because that wasn t him He wasn t drawn to explore the darker sides of desire, those places where control bled away and chaos slipped in hide spoiler
