5.0 out of 5 stars Another Sarah Morgan great read 2 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sarah Morgan at her best - the language is excellent - sorry I hate a plod and this is vibrant, pacy and steamy in one book.

The plot gets reviewed by others so only need to add:- Yes,Izzy is young (she calls Matteo out on his stuffy engagement party for her sister with hilarious results), has had a few knockdowns from family and bad press but still stands up for herself!
I like a strong heroine who is great at the comeback and gets in some excellent witty last words too! Its steamy too with one scene where the leads almost lose control whilst trying to avoid a roving spotlight...

You know the book is going to have a happy ending but an emotional one? Try it, Sarah Morgan gets 5 stars for a reason.

Can't understand how one reviewer only gave this one star! Please have you read some of the other bland and poorly written romance stuff out there that gets 4 & 5 star reviews? Eek.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Really Good Read 12 Nov 2012
By Jen
Format:Kindle Edition
As always with Sarah Morgan's stories, I feel uplifted and happy after reading one. This was no exception.
The story moves well and is easy to read. I had to learn to love Izzy, the heroine, as I found her annoying to begin with. Little did I know that was what everyone else was doing and all she wanted was to be seen for who she really is. Izzy is also the only one who can bring down the defences of the prince.
Sarah Morgan reeled me in once more. Both hero and heroine were great ! A really feel-good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good fun light read 5 Aug 2013

I really loved Izzy - she was a wonderful character - funny and endearing, this was escapism at its best - completely fictional romance with a fabulous modern twist but so much fun to read. Loved it.

DEFYING THE PRINCE is a romance packed with humor, steamy sensuality and heart-tugging pathos. It is a sparkling tale of unexpected attraction, chance encounters and red-hot passion. Author Sarah Morgan has fulfilled the promise of a yummy hero in Matteo and a witty heroine in Izzy and rolled them in a story that is filled with emotion and sizzle.

A disgraced pop princess finds herself falling in love with a brooding prince in Sarah Morgan's contribution to The Santina Crown continuity: Defying the Prince.

When wild child Izzy Jackson had taken part in a TV talent show, she thought that her future as a singing sensation was assured. After years of dreaming of becoming a chart-topping pop star, Izzy's dream finally looked like it was within reach; but unfortunately her record flopped and her fledgling career was over before it even started. However, Izzy refused to give up on her dreams. She was determined to prove to her detractors - and to her family who had never believed in her - that she had what it takes to make it as a singer. All she needed was a chance to show the world how talented she really is, but who is going to take a chance on a wannabe singer whose failure had been so public? When Izzy's sister Allegra announces that she's marrying into the royal Santina family, the aspiring singer hatches a plan that will enable her to prove her mettle in front of the world's press and Prince Matteo, her sister's soon to be brother in law who knows all the top people in the music industry. Prince Matteo could be the one to make all of Izzy's dreams of superstardom a reality. But there's a catch: Prince Matteo thinks that Izzy is a vacuous airhead who doesn't have a single talented bone in her entire body!

Matteo cannot fathom what possessed his brother to marry into the notorious Jackson family. With their penchant for drinking and rabble-rousing, the members of the Jackson clan have become firm favourites with the paparazzi and their exploits are regularly splashed all over the tabloids. Despite all this, Matteo still hopes that his brother's engagement party to Allegra Jackson will be a dignified affair. However, all his hopes are dashed when tipsy starlet Izzy gets up on stage and begins to belt out a raucous tune in the middle of proceedings! Determined to ensure that his brother's reception does not degenerate into a farce, Matteo finds himself with no other option but to smuggle Izzy out of the party, into his limo and straight to his secluded luxury palazzo!

Izzy is absolutely furious with Matteo! She cannot believe that the arrogant prince had the gall to interrupt her performance and make a complete fool out of her! Izzy is determined to show Matteo that she deserves to be taken seriously as an artist, but what the spirited singer hadn't counted on was making sweet music with the gorgeous prince!

Is Matteo ready to overcome his bias against Izzy? Or will prejudice lose him the only woman he can ever love?

Romance superstar Sarah Morgan has outdone herself once again with Defying the Prince! Sexy, sassy, witty and feel-good, Defying the Prince is an emotional, enjoyable and wholly engrossing contemporary romance about first impressions, triumphing against adversity and falling in love with a fantastic heroine you'll adore and a sexy Alpha hero you will love!

Fun, warm-hearted and absolutely impossible to put down, Sarah Morgan's Defying the Prince is not to be missed!
