Review: The Formidable King

My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Formidable King
India Hamilton is a 27 year old managing director of the Princess Eden Charitable Foundation.  She is sharp, confident and spirited.  For all that she is self-assured, she has an aversion to intimacy stemming from childhood.

Six years ago, at a masquerade ball, she shared a romantic interlude with a masked man who made her challenge her innermost thoughts and desires.  However, fate intervened and she fled the ball without a trace.

King Gabriel de la Croix rules the kingdom of Santaliana.  He is known to be rigidly straight, serious as well as a responsible ruler.  When he meets the director of his late sister's charity, he realizes immediately that this is the woman that left him at the ball years ago.  He cannot let go of or forgive the humiliation of being deserted in front of his two closest friends.  Nor will his body allow him to forget the passionate kisses they shared.  With this, he sets out to prove she is not suitable as the head of the foundation by proving she is a gold-digging, party-loving playgirl.

What happens when Gabe realizes that India is everything he ever wanted?  How will India react when confronted with his desire for her?

This book is surprisingly much more than you think it is.  Upon reading this book, I had assumptions about where the plot would go and OMG!  I was SO wrong!  Although I found the ending rushed as if to put a pretty bow on everything, I do not believe it detracts from the story.

The attraction and chemistry of these characters  pulled me in and most of the misunderstandings were cleared up quickly..  I couldn't put it down!  There is so much to say but, I believe this book is better enjoyed without divulging too much information about it.

I heartily approve.
