Brenda Joyce does it again! I love practically all of her stories. I didn't think I would enjoy a romance featuring a Prince because quite frankly how many Princes do you meet? Any story featuring the hero as a true Prince is just "stuff of fairy-tales." Unexpectedly, I really enjoyed this story. It had the makings of all great romances with tragedy, romance, sex, action, suspense. This Prince suffers the pangs of real life responsibilities and suffers the consequences when remaining true to the expectations of the social norms of his age. It is not inescapable just because he is a Prince. And of course, the heroine gets to live the "fairy-tale" dreamed by all little girls of finding a Prince that truly loves her. The greatness is that the heroine could be the girl next door, or better yet even yourself! But real life invades this sweet scene in the most believable of ways, and rips at the heart. Don't despair! Keep reading....Your heart is bound to be saved! :-}
