I finally had a block of time to finish another one of Jacqueline's books. I've noticed that Jacqueline is a master at building believable environments and communities because both The Prince and the Nun and Light O'Love feature memorable characters who can hardly be called merely "supporting" cast members.

Let's discuss the "Prince" in the story. Mefist IS Prince Charming in every sense of the word but he and his soldiers are caught in a war and assigned to take full control of sleepy convent hi
This novel is a bit of a saucy romp. Although the 'nuns' are not entirely believable the novel is fun, as long as you like playing with sex as a theme. The setting is good in the previously eastern european block, what probably would have been Prussia. Conversely to the German Nazi army during WWII, I do appreciate that the early Prussian armies were known for their gentlemanly officers which were generally taken from high ranking, wealthy families.

Recommends it for: lovers of good, believable tales
Mother Superior Therese of the Magdalene convent in the castle of Montebello, has a problem. War has broken out and the Imperial Army has occupied Montebello. Now the adjutant Prince Franz Mefist has presented her with an ultimatum: he needs girls for the officer's bordello, and if Therese does not find them in her convent, then the army will seize women from the neighbouring village.

Are her vows worth sacrificing village women and their families?

And if she agrees to help with girls, what else

"Imagine yourself in a fictional castle Montebello somewhere in Europe around 1940, when break of the war forces a group of young nuns (lead by Mother Superior Therese) to become concubines to Imperial Army, headed by Prince Mefist. The sisters are brought to a sexual awakening facing 'few' demons and taboos…
The Prince and the Nun is a vivid story of forbidden pleasure and lust between Therese and amour Prince Mefist. It’s a very tasteful and engaging erotic story. Loved it and hope there will b

Excerpt - Dress Rehearsal 1 9 Sep 18, 2008 04:50PM  
Jacqueline lives in the far north of Queensland, Australia, on the shores of the Coral Sea. She has a house built for the tropical climate - on tall stilts and with walls that open to let the breeze blow through.

She lives with her husband who is easily managed, and her marmalade cat Rudy who definitely isn't.

Jacqueline writes romantic stories because she is an unrepentant romantic at heart. But sh
