Posing as her best friend’s lover shouldn’t be a problem. At least that’s what Tonya tells herself — until she meets Michael’s twin brother Gabriel, and finds out just how hot fire dragons can burn.

I adored this book! I totally enjoyed the story, the romance and pretty much everything about it.

When I say I enjoyed the story, it’s because the plot was one I could sink my teeth into. I understood the motivation of Michael and Tonya. I believed in the heroine’s torn loyalties, Michael’s needing a break from familial pressure and the stress it caused, and I sighed over Gabriel’s dragonish ways.

I commend Ms. Hasker’s description of Gabriel when he was overcome by passion, even when he tried to rein it in. I had so much fun reading about the effect his dragon had on Tonya, and visa versa. The way Tonya first met Gabriel was sexy, seductive and oh, so exciting. The sex scenes between the two were perfect in execution, timing and level of heat. I really felt that the plot was more about the romance than spending page after page describing one sexual event. Every feeling that I expect a romance story to invoke, the author nailed it.

There were only a few things I wished were in the story, Gabriel’s actual descriptive response to the beignets, a sentence or two of dialogue from Michael and Gabriel’s parents clearly illustrating their snobbery so the reveal would have a stronger impact, and a wish that Tonya and Gabriel’s dragons had a chance to let loose so they could come out and play. I bet that would have been fun.

The one big secret that is hinted at early on, when it was finally revealed to the reader and the secondary characters, (pretty much everyone — everyone that is, except the hero), was like a fairy tale. You have no idea how much I appreciate Ms. Haskell’s handling of the great reveal to Gabriel. His actions, his words, and his response to Tonya, all of it made me happy.

I’m absolutely delighted to recommend this romance story to readers. Secret Princess was awesome.
