This is one of THE BEST historical romances I have read in quite some time. I loved it! The instep cover of the book, featuring the dashingly handsome "Dark Prince" and Elizabeth seductively posed against the trunk of a tree amidst a forest backdrop is only the prelude to one HOT tale.

Elizabeth has been raised in a household of men headed by her father who thinks that women are "useless and stupid". Eager to escape her dreary existence in her father's household and resigned to the fact that no man would want her due to her freakish height, coltish limbs, and "witch's hair" - she resigns herself to a life among the sisters of St. Anne's convent. Unfortunately, her escort of holy friars have also been charged with escorting the bastard son of the king to the convent to do penance for the murder of a nobleman's daughter. Elizabeth finds herself disturbingly attracted to the notorious prince and finds his mannerisms to be at odds with his dangerous reputation. Elizabeth's quick wit and sharp tongue kept me greatly amused throughout the story.

Now on to our hero. The "Dark Prince" can best be summed up in three words: DEE-LISH-US!!! *three snaps and a neck twist I simply adored this man. I haven't read about a hero of his caliber in quite some time. He had it all - this man was pure sensuality rolled up in one darkly handsome package. *fanning self frantically

The secondary characters, namely Dame Joanna and Brother Adrian, make for a great story as well.

If you're looking for laughs, witty dialogue, snappy comebacks, steamy love scenes, lots of action and heartfelt romance - this book has it all!!!

Anne Stuart - I salute you!

Not bad! I've never read Anne Stuart before and was pretty happy with this introduction. Actually what I'd heard about Anne Stuart was that she was known for having extremely alpha male leads, but I can't say this guy seemed especially out of place. Definitely not a push-over, but what do you expect from high-ranking medieval guys. Anyway, it'd been a while since I read a straight romance novel, so this was a nice change of pace!

I agree with Tonia B.'s description & review 100%, except, I don't think there are "laughs" in this book - it's a pretty serious story all the way. The hero & heroine are in danger from a killer for about 2/3 of the story. Great characters and hot love scenes, and a nice secondary romance too.

Not one of Stuart's best. An interesting premise none the less. If you like historical romance this may be the book for you.

The story of a lady whose only desire is to be a nun. However, on
her journey to th convent she yields to temptation. To say more would
interfere with a GREAT read.

Independent and headstrong, Elizabeth of Bredon wants only to become a nun, but her journey to the convent of St. Anne's threatens her choice. It's not the escort of holy friars who tempt her, but the man they are taking to do penance for his many sins. Elizabeth has heard whispers about Prince William's treatment of women-the king's only son is a man well schooled on deception, cruelty and murder-yet she cannot entirely resit his charms.
But when the journey takes a treacherous turn, masks of deception fall and there is no safe place but in the wicked prince's arms. With treachery drawing near, they are soon racing against time, murderous revenge...and their own sinful desires.
