Giveaway - Seduce me in Flames by Jacquelyn Frank Book 2 in the Three World Series
Publisher: Ballentine Books
Since the age of 4, when she was ripped from her mother’s arms and the pampered life of a royal princess, Ambrea Vas Allay was never sure whether her father the Emperor would pick today as the day to end her existence. When she is called to the palace for a royal audience, she is unsure what to expect, but it was not to find out her father had died and that her adolescent half brother is now the Emperor. Thrown in prison for her refusal to sign away her name and all claims to the thrown, her innate dignity keeps her for begging for mercy. Rush Ender Blakely is an elite soldier with IM, The Interplanetary Militia, and he is sent in undercover to break out the princess and help restore her to the throne. With the help of the rest of his team, Ambrea and Ender fight for the lives of themselves and the freedom of her people.
I rated this book as a salad because it is not my usual fare. I do love Jacquelyn Frank’s books but normally I’m not a big sci-fi reader. I do make an exception for this series however, because it has her trademark heroes and captivating plots. Ender, so called because he ends things, is a big, tanned, muscular blonde, who likes to blow things up. Well, that’s enough for me, I’m completely sold. He’s also been keeping a secret from his team. He’s a human torch. After finding out the hard way as a young man, he knows to keep his curse a secret, but when Ambrea discovers it by accident and is not appalled or afraid, his heart is lost.
Ambrea is a very sheltered young woman for a political prisoner. She is also very devout and extremely loyal to her people. These qualities are what terrify her corrupt uncle, who is plotting to take her throne. Although not my typical kick-ass type of favored heroine, Ambrea has intelligence and hutzpah out the ying yang. She has a steel plated spine and is a worthy mate for Ender. The crew from Seduce Me in Dreams is well and truly represented, although my boy Domino is only mentioned once. *sigh*
This is a action packed book that reads very quickly. It has humor, drama, really, really, really good sex, fantastic characters and a compelling story. I want to spread my love of this tremendous series. If you would like my copy of either Seduce Me in Flames or Seduce Me in Dreams, simply follow the rules below. Contest ends 8/14/11 at 11:59 est.
