Andrea L. reviewed Prince of Danger (Isles / Templars, Bk 3) on
Helpful Score: 1
This is the first book I read of Amanda Scott's. I was completely thrilled when I read it. It was captivating from beginning to end. The characters, especially Isobel, are well rounded and complex. I love that the story kept me guessing the entire time. This was also the first romance novel I read and I was hesitant to buy it based on the fact that it is a romance novel. I was expecting one of those cheesy damsel in distress types, but I was pleasantly surprised that Isobel was a woman who could take care of herself, to an extent. I am also glad that the bedroom scenes weren't too descriptive, as I am uncomfortable with that. All-in-all, I loved this book and I have since bought a fair amount of Amanda Scott books.
I love this story. I like the adventure and how the two main character slowly fall in love and learn to trust each other over the space of the book. Amanda Scott's knowledge of the period paints such vivid pictures that her readers feel they're a part of the action, and the underlying sexual tension will leave you squirming in your chair. Amanda Scott delivers a sensuous, humorous, adventurous plot. Isobel is a good heroine--pretty spunky and genuinely good-hearted. You fall in love with Micheal from the get go. I am once again in awe at the brilliant way that this author can weave fiction into and around the rich historical background that she sets her characters into.
If you're looking for a romance novel that is character driven and that has everything necessary for a good, engrossing read, you can't go very wrong with "Prince of Danger" Prince of Danger is is not lust at first sight book but a well formed love story. There are interesting plot twists and we get to know several secondary characters well. The secondary characters are not boring. I love both Isobel's sisters and brother in law. I'm always looking for a diffrent plot line than most romance books have. Prince of Danger has that and more.
Captured when she attempts to come to the aid of Michael St. Clair, whom she discovers being badly beaten by a gang of men, Lady Isobel Macleod, a headstrong young lady determined to avoid the marital trap, escapes with Michael, unaware that he is the younger brother of a prince and that she will be forced to marry him in order to protect her reputation.
When a dashing Scottish nobleman meets an impetuous beauty under treacherous circumstances, they discover something more irresistible than the fabled Templar treasure that they seek....
To Lady Isobel Macleod, marriage is a prison and husbands irritating encumbrances. Her domineering father and ferocious brother-in-law have proven as much to her. But when she comes upon Sir Michael St. Clair, master of Rosslyn Castle, being beaten by vicious strangers, she flies to the knight's defense, helps him escape, and flees with him into the rugged Highlands and beyond to the misty Isles. Alone under the stars with the man whose gaze holds her spellbound, Isobel ponders her long-held prejudices. But as their relentless enemy pursues them, she faces a new danger--surrendering her freedom to this fearless yet tender man...and linking her fate forever to the treasure that stirs mankind's greed and imagination to this very day.
