I loved this last book in the trilogy ... okay, I loved all the books in the trilogy!!!
This is the third book in the Ascencion triology. Excellent story. Gaelen Foley fans won't be disappointed.
Foley is back up to her normal standards with this book. I actually liked both lead characters in this book. The chemistry was there... oh boy was the chemistry there. The plot was fun and not overly cliched or formulaic. Best of all, Foley actually brought in major parts from the other two novels in the series. I like it when an author can carry over facts in a series. The one downside to that, however, was that she made King Lazar seem stupid and old in this book when he was witty and intelligent in is own installment. Aside from that, this was a great read.
So sad the triology is over! Great ending to a great series...
3rd in seris....just like the 2 before it wonderful book loved it kept my interest from start to finish!
Foley never fails to please! Her books are always a delight.
Very fun book with highly engaging characters! This is one of my favorite Gaelen Foley books.
I love Gaelen Foley! She always writes amazing stories, and this book is no exception! Lots of action and romance will keep you interested throughout the book! :)
Setting: Isle of Ascencion, 1816
Sensuality Rating: 8
On the eve of his 30th birthday, Crown Prince Raffaele Giancarlo Ettore di Fiore feels more like a prisoner than a prince. With his every wish granted and no real work required of him, Rafe is bored. Fate intervenes when his coach is set upon by The Masked Rider, a mysterious highwayman adored by the common folk for his Robin Hood ways. Rafe foils the bandit's attack only to later discover that he's unmasked a lovely young noblewoman. Lady Daniela Chiaramonte is as strong-willed and brave as she is beautiful and when she's drawn into Rafe's world of luxury and power, she becomes an invaluable ally in the storm of events that threaten his once predictable life. With an unknown assassin plotting against the royal family, Rafe's wit, courage, and endurance is tested beyond reason. Perhaps no one but Rafe and Daniela believe that he can save the kingdom; in the end, even the powerful prince might not be able to save the woman he loves.
Convoluted political intrigue, an evil villain, trusty companions, and a fascinating hero and heroine make this action-filled romance an entertaining finish for the trilogy that began with The Pirate Prince and continued with Princess. --Lois Faye Dyer
