Passion and danger abound in this classic historical romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Orphaned and besieged, Princess Alesandra knows that only a hasty marriage to an Englishman can protect her from the turmoil in her own land. The bold, raven-haired beauty instantly captivates London society, much to the amusement of her makeshift guardian, Colin, younger brother of the Marquess of Cainewood.

But when Alesandra is nearly abducted by her unscrupulous countrymen, Colin knows he must protect her and offers a marriage that should be in name alone—until their first kiss ignites a wildfire in his soul. As the lovely princess dashes headlong into unforseen dangers, Colin will risk his own life to save her and claim Alessandra as his own—forever...

  • Disappointed

    By misschopsticks
    I loved JG's novel The Secret. I cant believe the same author wrote this book. From a 5 stars to 1 star... Problems i had with this novel: Ridiculous dialogue (not very witty, just a lot of silly back an forth that doesn't make sense). Another thing that doesn't make sense is the heroine. She sounds like a silly git. I don't understand how she could have such a "head for figures" and no head for conversation. She's so dense! The heroine is also very meek. There's a lot of indignation, but girl, DO something. I'm slightly past the middle of the novel, and I'm just fed up with her character. Read The Secret. Skip this one.

    Loved, loved, loved this book. A very unique story of mystery and romance. Also, the humor was unexpectedly nice. I found myself openly laughing. I look for to reading another novel by her.
