Raised by a guardian who died shortly after he started at Eton, Damien's one clue to his parentage, a key, was stolen by Walt.  Now as an adult, Damien is desperate to find out who his parents were.  So he hatches a plan.  He will kidnap Walt's sister and hold her hostage until Walt delivers the key.  What could possible go wrong with that plan?  Except he accidentally kidnaps Walt's unwanted cousin instead.

Once I got past the fact that such a level headed man could come up with such a foolish scheme, this book worked for me on so many levels. A hint of fairy tale without being an outright retelling.  Deep characters.  An intriguing plot.  I couldn't stop turning pages. I'll be reading the first two books in this series soon.  If you like fairy tales and historical romances, give this one a try. 

This historical was has put me in the mood for more historical romance.  Do you have any recommendations?


  1. Have you ever read Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase? It's one of my favorites! Educating Caroline by Patricia Cabot is another favorite. I think it's a lot harder to find. I'm not sure if it's been released in digital. -Anne

  2. Holy crap! I just looked up Educating Caroline and it's $19.96 for the Kindle edition? Crazy! The paperback is selling for $26. (I've got a paperback!) -Anne

  3. Luckily my library has a copy of Educating Caroline. $20 is out of my reading budget. I've added it to my TBR list. Thanks for the recommendation.
