Unexpectedly Romantic and Desireable!
When this first flew across my suggested bookshelf, I was surprised due to not heavily reading physically intimate stories, or even stories about "Dominant and Submissive" roles, but this was more than enjoyable - it was educational! I had often tethered the term "submissive" with "slave", but that isn't the case at all! Definitely worth the read - certainly changed my perspective and gave me a fantasy or two! ❤️
Exiled seems to suffer from a split personality. On the one hand, the book reads like a historical romance; exiled prince, virginal ingenue, etc... In fact, I wondered, until the mention of a jet, if I'd accidentally downloaded myself into the nineteenth century. Then there's the aforementioned ingenue. She seems to be almost painfully timid and proper, too pure to be true. And yet, after a couple of chapters she's suddenly cursing and claiming to be self-assured. And the ease with which she begins her sexual journey-well, there was very little timidity there. Did I like the book? Yes. Mostly for the good sex scenes. Did I believe the story? Nope. And that's the ultimate contradiction.
