The Spanish Prince's Virgin Bride - Sandra Marton


Each time I pick up a book by Sandra Marton, I'm amazed by it's strength and power and the enjoyment it brings, especially The Spanish Prince's Virgin Bride which is the last book in Sandra's Billionaires' Brides series.

Alyssa McDonough is a firey and proud woman who is determined to save her father's ranch and someday get it back on its' feet. Even though Alyssa was adopted she thought she would inherit the ranch she loved and the land belonged to her departed mother. However, she learns otherwise and that her stepfather made an agreement witn an old friend in Spain, Felix Reyes.

Felix Reyes has hoped for years that his grandson Lucas Reyes would settle down and now he is hopeful that his plan will present an opportunity for Lucas to just do that, marry his old friend's daughter, Alyssa. What better opportunity, since he owns the land than to send Luis to Texas to meet Alyssa and visit the ranch on a pretense he is going to be looking at horses and the newly acquired Texas ranch. If Felix's plans succeed, his grandson will see the lovely and bright Alyssa and agree to an arrangement he has cooked up. Well, you think it's hot in Texas? When Alyssa and Lucas learn what both their family members cooked up, "explosive" doesn't even begin to describe what happened.

Lucas is smart, sexy, handsome, wealthy and adores his grandfather. They share a love for Spain and raising their Andalusian's so it seems natural when his grandfather sends him to honor the request and travel to view the Ranch. What Lucas doesn't expect is to meet the very beautiful, sassy and stubborn Alyssa. Immediately there are sparks and sensual tension......they are combustible together so when he learns the truth of what his Grandfather has done, he demands Alyssa accompany him back to Spain to settle and undo the terms of the agreement.

Will this independent lovely horsewoman and playboy ever come to an agreement? Their journey is one you will not want to miss. In fact, this three book triology is brilliant! Wealth, power, secrets, tension and in the end all three old friends have happy endings.

Alyssa's character tugged at my heart. She really never felt loved by her step father and her mother was reserved. In the end, she learns a secret that rocks her world plus she never expects to fall in love with the sexy and tender hearted Spaniard who brings her so much joy and pleasure.

As for Lucas, well his character is to die for and you'll fall in love with him just as Alyssa did and in the end even his meddling grandfather will have your heart as well.

The very talented Sandra Marton continues to deliver powerful, meaningful and entertaining stories to her readers. I encourage contemporary romance readers to read The Spanish Prince's Virgin Bride and the other two books in the trilogy....The Italian Prince's Pregnant Bride and The Greek Prince's Chosen Wife.


Book Summary:

'I cannot imagine a virgin would return a kiss with such fervor.'

Prince Lucas Reyes is angry. His grandfather is forcing him into marriage with penniless Alyssa McDonough who's pretending she's untouched by any man. But the intense sexual chemistry between them tells him otherwise.…

Lucas's fiery royal blood is roused! He'll force Lyssa to go to Spain with him, where he can get their marriage annulled. Because he'd swear that she's pure, uninhibited mistress material, and never a virgin bride!
