Sophia Dumas is the Dumas princess. Her father’s only heir and bargaining chip. Her father has offered her hand in marriage to his right hand but with him gone, he then promises her to one of two men. One a pedophile and the other a serial killer in waiting. Sophia has always been a good, dutiful daughter, despite her father’s attempt to give her to the most disgusting men.
When Sophia’s latest pleas to her father go unheard, she decides to take up her friend’s suggestion to have a night out on the town. She wants one night for herself before she has to marry a monster.

I’ve always enjoyed Karin Tabke’s books in the past and this one wasn’t bad either. It just wasn’t everything I remembered her book being. The suspense was okay but not great. The sex was hot, sure enough but in the end it was just okay for me.
