This book was lacking in a few things:a) A likeable hero - Alex didn't appeal at all. It just seemed like he always had ulterior motives and didn't care about Livia at all. Not a believable character.b) Development of romance/love - I read these books for one reason, and that is the romance. There was none in this book. The characters didn't have that lightning bolt moment when they realize they are in love, and any lead-up type moments were very very boring.It was just a very unsatisfying novel [...]

Heroine inherited a house from a distant relative. She and her friends have come to London to live in it and escape from their relations, and it's working out well. Hero is a Russian prince, except we learn in the prologue that he's the bastard son of his Russian prince father and an English gentlewoman, sent away with his father because the opportunities are so much greater. He's come to England to advance the cause of Mother Russia by keeping an eye on British politics, when Tsar Alexander is [...]

Sadly, this book was only okay. I had to try to read it twice, because it was so slow to take off that the first time I tried to read it I just stopped reading altogether because it was so unexciting.As the book went on, it did get a bit better. But unfortunately, it never amounted to anything spectacular.If you really like that time period, this book might be worth reading. But otherwise, skip it.

* Concept of espionage/spies are fascinating, but poorly executed in this novel* Lack of romance in beginning, seemed forced* Secretive-untrustworthy, not clear motives* Inconsistency in heroine--rather insipid and shallow at start* Author's version of spies/espionage--laughable and not appealing to me* Puts "trashy" in trashy romance* Something just doesn't sit right with me about these books (Cavendish Square)I may seem cruel, but this book severely disappointed me.

Meh. She inherits house which unknown to her belongs to the hero. Hero doesn't want to just throw her out. Marries her instead. She's not what he thought - much more independent and outspoken. He holds secretsda da da. Didn't do much for me.

20/12 - Not as good as the first book in the series. I don't like the hero, Alexander Prokov, much at all. He appears to pursue Livia within a few sentences of the start of the first chapter (not counting the prologue). At first I wasn't sure if he was going to be a bad guy attempting to ingratiate himself to Livia in order steal something, information or an object, from her or the house. Even after their marriage, less than half way through the book, he still doesn't seem trustworthy or particu [...]

To Wed A Wicked Prince is the first book that I have read written by author Jane Feather. It wasn’t until I read the book that I realized it was part of a series called Cavendish Square. However I enjoy romantic historical fictions and I was hoping to be captivated by this book. The story is of a 28 yr old single woman, Livia Lacey that came into unexpected inheritance in London and lives somewhat independently with of course servants and a friend before meeting a handsome and mysterious forei [...]

I usually like Jane Feather. I pick up one of her books whenever I am having a reading 'slump' as her books tend to be quick, fun, and a step above other romance novels. However, this book wasn't the best. The only "different" thing about this book was that the main male is Russian. For a book set in the regency era, this is a bit different. I felt the couple were rushed into love, and the character development wasn't there.A woman grows old, doesn't want any suitors, but a stranger decides to w [...]

I would have given this a higher grade had we had a longer ending. It was wrapped up to easy and there wasn't really anything resolved that really mattered to make a marriage based on lies work. IMO.

So so storyline. It was kinda confusing with all of the Russian politics. Who's side was he really on? Didn't feel the normal chemistry that Jane puts into her novels. Wasn't one of my favorties of hers.

I swear I used to enjoy historical romance in a guilty pleasure sort of way, but GAH. Just dreadful. Unbelieveable storyline & flat, stupid characters.

Pretty lame actually.

While I did enjoy reading this fast read I would still have to say I had hoped for more, but it still was a good book that tied in lost loves, passion, betrayal, and spy suspense.

What can I say? It's been a busy month. I needed some mindless brain candy. This book tried marry political intrigue with romance, but it doesn't do it very well.

This is the second installment of the Cavendish Square series, Livia's story. It was not as compelling as the first one, Nell and Harry's story. I think it was because of the Russian intrigue element not being as interesting as the side plot of the firstd the names were hard to keep straight of Alex's coconspiritors and enemieswhich were which. At any rate our heroine saves the day and HEA prevailed but with a questionable future as Alex will still be involved in a plot to overthrow the czar.

tried to be a Romance novel a spy novel and historical fiction all in one. did all of those things poorly. cannot stress enough how it dragged out for pages. admittedly the point of these is the vibe that they create not the writing itself but the sex scenes were mediocre and thus did not redeem it. And a bare minimum Google search was all that was needed to fix the historical accuracy problems.

The Cavendish Square trilogy continues with the story of Livia, the heiress to the eccentric little house that we first see in A Wicked Gentleman. We learned in the last installment that the house has a lot of little idiosyncratic features, including a mural on the ceiling that is rather explicit, and a few items that are also a bit porno for the era. The ladies of the house find it all a bit hilarious. The story again starts with a prologue, in which one of the multitude of princes of Russia is [...]

I'd probably only give this book 3.5 stars if half stars were an option, but I'm being generous and rounding up instead of down because I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that it didn't drag as much as I thought it would. It was definitely a much longer book than I'm used to seeing these days (nearly 500 pages in the print edition), but fortunately the story kept moving and didn't get bogged down in inane details or spend too long on one aspect of the plot. Also, it was nice to read about a [...]

Gibt es was exotischere als einen russischen Prinzen in England? Nur ein oder zwei Sachen fallen mir da ein. Die Geschichte war sehr interessant auch wie sie beid [...]

Tadinya tertarik dengan buku ini karena kemarin baru selesai membaca HR karya Judith McNaught dan kembali nagih untuk baca buku HR lainnya.Saat membaca sinopsisnya, sudah tertarik karena ada kata-kata spy dan si tokoh utama wanita yang merasa dikhianati. Harus diakui, aku menunggu adegan itu dalam buku ini.Namun sayangnya, adegan itu sangat jauh dari harapan. :|Iya, selain adegannya sangat jauh di belakang buku, dan Livia terlalu mudah memaafkan Alex! =.= Khan kepingin lihat adegan Alex harus be [...]

Alex is a Russian prince come to London on personal and official business for his country. Livia is a respectable woman who inherited a house from a distant relative and loves her life of independence. He sets his eyes on her for a wife and she is wary and flattered. I was really disappointed in this book. Alex was a pompous, arrogant ass throughout the whole book until the last two pages. I usually like the hero and heroine of the books I read, but not this one. Alex was deceitful and closed of [...]

I liked that the hero was a Russian prince. I also liked that Livia wasn't really your run-of-the-mill miss from the ton. Those two things set the book apart from other regencies right away. It also has the characters get married in the middle of the book, which is a trope I like because it provides the characters with a way to get away from all the coquettish flirting and get down to the nitty gritty of what really makes a relationship work. The other trope I like is the pretty woman trope. I'm [...]

So if I wasn't married and this Prince was real I'd shake it like the naughty wicked witch of the west with him. LOL Okay, so truthfully I just wanted to use that line and it seemed appropriate with the title, but I truly did enjoy the book. The line by the way was from a Nickelback song (one I actually didn't care for, but chuckled at the lyrics when I heard them). A romance with a bit of espionage. He's a Russian prince with a secret past. When Livia Lacey is pursued by Prince Alex Prokov she [...]

Espionage, a Russian Prince, Regency England… this book is pretty good. As always I hate it when the hero and heroine don’t talk to each other, so the threat of being discovered as a spy is an interesting way to make it work in the plot.I thought the ending was a little abrupt but I think this is part of a larger series.My highest rating for a romance novel is 3 stars, I'd like to give this one 2.5 stars.

I like this trilogy well enough so far. I still feel like there is some spark missing, but the women are all awesome. They are not giggling debutantes, and their romances are more adult. (It helps that two are widows.) I wanted to smack the hero upside the head a few times, and I'm not sure the culture clash was quite correct. Overall, however, I liked the pairing -- especially at the end when it all came together.
