Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, there was a girl who dressed up and went to a big party at the palace. When she was there, she met a prince. They danced and fell in love....

Damn good line. Too bad I don’t believe a word of it anymore.

My name is Claire Montgomery, and I’m not a princess. I’m a fighter. I worked hard to earn my place on the emergency image repair team for one of the biggest public relations companies in the country. We’ve been called to the renowned Chicago headquarters of Stone Global Corporation, where it’s our job to clean up a heap of the Stone family’s filthiest laundry. Our success will be the biggest victory of my career. I’m on my game. I’m ready.

Why doesn’t ready include a contingency plan for Killian Stone?

Such charm...

This book was slow in a languid sexy sort of way, a very very good way indeed! With by far some of the best narration ever I found myself drowning in the oozing goodness of their performance. With a story so very yummy I truly enjoyed every moment. I am rather disappointed that it’s a cliffhanger as far as the HEA is concerned... but that too is okay since there is another book to sink into.

So sexy, do steamy rip roaring hot....

Worth it!

Full of secrets. Great narration

The first book in the Secrets of Stone series and it is off to a good start. If this series is not on your TBR list then I suggest that you add it. This was a fast paced book, full of secrets; a fun and quirky take on Cinderella.
From the start I was entranced by Killian Stone and I was excited to see who the woman who would capture and hold his attention would be; Claire Montgomery did not disappoint.
Claire is a member of a PR team that has been called in to clean up the image of Stone Global Corporation. She has her own secrets, ones that she is determined will not be exposed.
Claire finds herself attracted to Killian and when you throw in the fact that Killian is enthralled with Claire, complications are sure to arise. Killian too has his secrets which he is bound and determined to keep, but all is not as it seems, despite the confident persona that Killian shows the world.
No Prince Charming is smoking hot and certainly delivers on the sizzle.Told in dual POV’s it will spark your interest and keep you entertained. Both Ms.Payne and Ms. Blue obviously work well together as it was impossible to determine who wrote what.

The story was erotica and exciting. I couldn't stop listening. I could picture in my mind just what the characters looked like, loved it.

An epic start to a series!

This was fantastic! It’s kind of a modern day fairytale about a young girl working for one of the biggest public relations company in the country. She’s working with a team that’s working with the Stone Global Corporation where she helps clean up all the unwanted rumours, and keep things as smooth was possible. It’s when she’s helping control Trey Stone and his rebellious ways that she meets Killian, his brother.

Claire? She’s a smart girl, a little skittish, a little shy in a way too, but she’s a fighter and she works her butt off for everything she has in life. She’s focused and she thought she had it all worked out, that was until Killian Stone came walking through the door and everything she’s worked hard for went out the window.

Killian? He’s a powerful CEO of his father’s company and he’s dominant and alpha as hell and when he sees something wants, he normally gets it and what he’s got his eyes on now is one of the team members that is trying to keep scandal aware from his families company.

Claire holds secrets of others, but she’s got some of her own.. and as much as she craves and wants Killian and wants to act upon these feelings, she’s reluctant but little does she know that Killian holds secrets too.

This book is full of drama, steam and even a fair bit of humour, and I absolutely loved it. Both Angel and Victoria are a duo to be reckoned with. Although I’ve only read book 1 and 8 of this series I already know it’s going to be phenomenal.

Jason Clarke never seems to disappoint me, he’s become a fast favourite of mine! At first I struggled with Devon Graces voice as Claire but over time I warmed to it!

If I could rate it more than 5 starts it would be higher!!

Kept me interested.

I liked the story, however i wish there was a part 2 or something to this book, it left me wondering a lot. The book climed to the peek at the end but I wanted more.
Did her father ever divorce Margos mother or did they live happy, How did she live with Margo and Andrea... How did Clair and Killian Stone get along, did it ever get better, did Clair quit her job and went to work for Mr Stone...
Overall ithe book kept me interested, I kept wanting to know more.

Should be labeled erotic

I really liked the story itself but it was totally ruined with the sex scenes. I'm no prude but the excruciating detail was so over the top that it ruined the story for me. Sorry won't be reading any more of her books.

Yes yes please to Jason Clarke!!!!

Jason Clarke has a sweet and tantalizing voice that makes you swoon. His narration was spot on. I liked Devon Grace too. This is an interesting series but at times I wanted Claire to speak up for herself and get a spine and out of her head. While I am looking forward to the next book in the series, its Killian that stole my heart 💕. He's all man . Look out ZW, Jason Clarke has that passion in his narrations too. Overall I liked the book and would recommend. I commend the inclusion and references of the the other Stone Brothers too. Great listen.

Warning: This is Not Really a Standalone Novel

This first novel in the author's series is free in the Romance Package. But the story of the H and h continues in the second book which is NOT free in the Romance Package.
