Engaging romance, which held my interest throughout
This book was not as good as the first in the series. Foley definitely hit a sophomore slump. The writing was her up to her normal standards but I really disliked the heroine. She came across as spoiled and uncaring. She just didn't do it for me. Darius, on the other hand, was a great character. He was dynamic, mainly because he was moody. The chemistry between these too saved the book. The plot, while holding promise, was cliched and overdone. Thankfully, Foley's body of works saved me from hating this particular work.
A nice , light read. Great trilogy. this is number 2.
This is a great book. I could't put it down. This is the second in the series and I feel you do need to read them in order (I feel this way about all series books though... you could read this one out of order but there are some spoilers).
BUT I have a few issues with Ms. Foley. First, she doesn't stick to the storyline between book one and book two on how Darius is found. I have a BIG issue with this and feel that it would have been VERY easy to connect the how he was found in book one with the storyline she gives him in book 2. Also I don't think that she did a good job of preserving the characters from book one in book two. Maybe it is because I read book 2 right after finishing book 1 and didn't give my mind time to jump 20 years in the future with the characters so I am trying to be forgiving about this.
I do love the book. For all of us who have dreamed of Knights and Secret Service agents protecting us... this is the book for us.
For all those that are interested in this series, I currently have all three books and I am a boxer (12/09).
LOVE this book! Gaelen never disappoints! Great hero and heroine that will capture your attention from the very first page!
Oh I really loved this book. Could not put it down... it had hot, steamy love scenes, wonderful dialogue, the characters were well developed and the story line flowed wonderfully. Lots of adventure, angst and of course a happy ending. Ms. Foley is a very talented writer, I have not been disappointed by any of her books. Can hardly wait to receive Prince Charming, the next in the series..
Another exciting, romantic adventure in this 2nd book in the trilogy!
adventure, intrigue and a great love story
a quick read- enjoyed alot
I loved the hero in this one!
If the Kings most trusted spy has one flaw - it is the stunning unattainable Princess

Darius Santiago is the King's most trusted spy. He is charming, ruthless, and he has one weakness--the stunning Princess Serafina.
