Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

With anger and bitterness permeating nearly every page, it's doubtful Lindsey's sequel to Once a Princess will attract any new readers. Set in 1836 Russia-though the novel is conspicuously short on historic atmosphere and long on contemporary terminology-Baroness Alexandra Rubliov is a woman beyond her own time, something of a female cossack who wields a whip and breeds and trains her own line of white horses. Her unconventionality and blunt way of speaking her mind make her undesirable in the marriage market. Her desperate father presents what he swears is a long-standing betrothal between Alexandra and Count Vasili Petroff. It is, in fact, a contract of his own creation, but conveniently indisputable because Vasili's father is dead. Alexandra is incensed but honor-bound to comply. Only if the count should break the contract would she be free. So she sets out to insult and ridicule him at every turn and strives to be as physically repulsive as possible, eating like a pig and going for days without bathing. Vasili is a too-handsome man who beds women as easily as elephants eat peanuts. Of the two, however, Vasili is the more sympathetic, especially as Alexandra proves time after time, by word and deed, that she is a better man than he. Reminiscent of the movie The War of the Roses, the couple scrap it out all the way, but in the very last pages they declare a semi-peace and hope for love and romance looms on the horizon.

Vasili was so nasty and arrogant in "Once a Princess," he was downright charming! I fell in love right away. I couldn't wait for Johanna Lindsey to write his sequel, and am quite pleased with the results.
To summarize quickly, "You Belong to Me" throws together gorgeous Vasili with wild Russian Alexandra, a tomboy and horse breeder. They are duped into a betrothal by Alexandra's father and plot endless amusing ways to force the other to break it before the actual wedding takes place.
Vasili is simply exciting - the "peacock" is so insulting and contrary it's a pleasure to once again see him in action. As for Alexandra, she's his match in spirit and temperament, returning his barbs and hot air with equal passion. Plus, she is so jealous she threatens to cut off the ears of all of Vasili's "women," which makes for a fun scene or two.
Speaking of "other women," Lindsey also spices up the story with Alexandra's refusal to give up hope that her first love, Christopher, will marry her. Add to that Vasili's numerous conquests - including his own personal concubine - and you find grounds for a few serious arguments between the unwillingly betrothed pair.
The passion between them is fun, whether it's love or hate, and the setting allows for a lot of action. After all, they are traveling by horseback and wagon from Russia to Cardinia, Vasili's hometown, for the wedding. This allows bandits to sneak up on them and other fine messes to follow. Plus, everyone from "Once a Princess" makes a welcome appearance.
The only negative things I can say about "You Belong to Me" is that Russia wasn't used as much as a setting.

King Stefan's cousin Vasili is a rogue of the worst kind. Women swarm to him in droves thanks to his incredibly handsome face. He has just discovered that his late father betrothed him 15 years before to a Russian baroness. Now he must go and collect his bride. But he is determined to show her what a cad he is so she will cry off the wedding. Alexandra prefers the independent life. She has been breeding and raising her own horses for years. Now her father has admitted that she is betrothed and that her groom is soon to arrive. She is honorbound to marry him. Furious, Alex refuses to present herself as the lady that she is and is determined that Vasili becomes disgusted enough with her to call off the wedding never realizing that he is as honorbound as she is. Now as they make the trip from Russia to Cardinia they are each determined to get the other to cry off. But something goes wrong. There is an underlying attraction between the two and to their dismay it is pulling them right into each other's arms.
I have to say that I sided with Alexandra the whole time. Vasili rubbed me the wrong way in Once a Princess and continued to do so in this story. Although, like Alex, I too soon succumbed to his charms in the end. Alex was strong, independent, feisty, and wonderfully funny. I loved her! This is no milk-and-water miss to fall at anyone's feet. Especially an arrogant rogue no matter how good his looks. A great story that keeps you laughing through the whole book.

Who wouldn't want their own personal Vasili Petroff? Incredibly handsome Vasili never met a woman who can resist him. No wonder he is so arrogant and desperately need to be taken down a peg or two. No better person to take on the job than his out of the blue betrothed Alexandra Rubliov, horse breeder extraordinaire.
At the age of 31, Count Vasili Petroff had no intention to get married anytime soon. Who could blame him when women threw themselves to him all the time? Imagine his shocked anger when he learned that he had been betrothed to his father's longtime friend Baron Rubliov's daughter. Certain that the girl will be glad to have him, Vasili intend to make sure the girl will call off the wedding by showing his contempt full blast to her. Unbeknownst to Vasili, the girl in question Alexandra Rubliov, or Alex as she usually called, had no intention of agreeing marrying him either. Alex had planned to parade her most unladylike behavior to make sure that "the popinjay" will call off their wedding.
It made one hell of an entertaining ride when they traveled from Russia to Cardinia, the country where Vasili lived, trying one after another outrageous deeds to get the other to cry off. Vasili's friend Count Lazar Dimitrieff certainly thought so!
So come, and join this full of laughter read from Lindsey.

When I read this book I didn't realize it was a "sequel" of sorts to "Once a Princess" which I haven't yet read - but will. I thought this book was lots of fun. Alex, at 25 quite old for a heroine, is perfectly happy with her life and her horses and is not interested in marriage. Her father wants her to marry and manufactures a "long forgotten" betrothal to Vasili, the son of his old long dead friend.
Vasili is the too-handsome-for-his-own-good cousin to the King of Cardinia. He's enjoying the bachelor life to the hilt (he's got three mistresses and a live-in slave!) and he seems to always get his way. Except when his mother tells him he's betrothed to a woman he's never met!
Since neither want to marry, they each try desperately to repell the other into breaking the betrothal (neither want to dishonor their fathers by breaking it themselves). In this Alex does the better job - if I had been Vasili, I would have had to slap her more than once!
I LOVED Vasili's character. For a vain, strutting peacock he had a lot of humor and more patience that I would have had. Alex on the other hand needed to grow up! Waiting seven years for some guy from her past was a bit much. I loved the fact that toward the end, Vasili was willing to accept the less than lady-like habits of Alex anyway not knowing she was doing it all for show. That was sweet. All in all a fun read.
