Foreign Affairs, Book One
Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway ’round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online–only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he’s on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter’s as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to. Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.
Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger–until he met Annie. Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo…and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter’s not normally one to poach his brother’s women, but he can’t keep his hands, lips, tongue and other body parts off this sexy city girl.
When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end–or when Dylan finds out?
Misplaced Princess by Mari Carr and Lexxie Couper is an intense, sexy, entertaining read that will keep the reader engrossed with it’s compelling, well-written plot, deliciously sinful characters, believable dialogue, and explosive unbridled passion. One of the things that I enjoyed the most about reading Misplaced Princess is the seamless transition from one author to the other in regards to each character’s dialogue and cultural background, which is a testament to these two magnificent authors’ writing skills.
Annie is absolutely adorable and I love her spunk and sauciness. She’s desperate for a change in her world and has no problem seizing the opportunity to add a little adventure to her life by traveling halfway around the world to meet a stranger that she’s met online. While this city girl is smart and normally prepared for anything given her very public life, she finds herself in an interesting predicament when she arrives in Australia. But never fear, Annie takes the bull by the horns and goes with the flow as she quickly discovers an intense, sexual attraction to an unexpected savior and her online mate’s brother, Hunter. When Hunter and Annie share a smoldering kiss that would make any woman’s toes curl, sparks begin to fly as the two struggle to keep their hands, mouths, and other interesting body parts off one another. Will Annie and Hunter be able to fight their attraction to one another until Dylan returns to claim his woman? Or will Hunter unleash the animal inside craving Annie and let the chips fall where they may?
Hunter is sexy, intelligent, and loves women. Moreover, he thought his brother was crazy for traveling halfway around the world to meet a woman he doesn’t know. That is, until the woman in question ends up in the Outback after crossing her wires with his brother, Dylan. If Annie’s sexy body and personality didn’t rev up Hunter’s engine, the smoking hot kiss they shared in the airport sure did. Waves of unbridled lust emanates off this dynamic couple and the reader can’t help but be swept into their world-wind romance. I instantly feel in love with Hunter’s practical side and his ability to make Annie feel safe and welcomed in his home. It was obvious that he was intersted in Annie on a deeper level than a one-night stand, so I enjoyed watching the two get to know one another as their romance blossomed and quickly spun out of control.
In regards to the secondary characters, I loved Hunter and Dylan’s mum. She was an absolute hoot and knew exactly what her son needed. Her quick wit, caring heart, and grasp of the situation will make you laugh until you cry as she watches Annie and Hunter circling one another like two animals in heat. In addition, I enjoyed the easy camaradiere between Hunter and his brother. It was obvious the two deeply cared for one another and had a bond that only twins could have. Ms. Carr and Ms. Couper does an excellent job of not only providing in depth background information on each of the characters, but also sets up the stage perfectly for the next couple of books in the series by quickly yet effectively introducing the reader to several of the upcoming characters.
Misplaced Princess is a compelling story written by two amazing authors who work well together and have the ability to write as one. Their characters are vibrant and full of life, the dialogue is realistic, the emotions are genuine and at times raw, and the sex is uninhibited. I loved that Hunter was willing to allow Annie to embrace her sexuality, as he confessed some of his own secret desires. This is a couple who was truly meant to be together and are in a word or two…soul mates. So, if you want a quick read that will warm your heart, put a smile on your face, and heat your body to the core from all of the sexual tension emanating off of Annie and Hunter, then Misplaced Princess by Mari Carr and Lexxie Couper is definitely the book to read. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to see how Dylan fairs with the woman who has quickly stolen his heart and soul. I’d definitely recommend Misplaced Princess to my friends, so be sure to check it out. You won’t be sorry.
