A great historical romance. Miss Evangeline decides to have 1 perfect summer, but of course she doesn't expect to have a handsome man who says he's the Crown Prince show up saying he is her fiance. He believes her to be the runaway princess she is not, or is she?

This was an excellent read and keeps you guessing the whole way through. Is she the real princess or not?

Evangeline Scoffield of East Little Teignmouth, Cornwall, is a fraud. Rescued at a young age from an orphanage she had called home for most of her life, Evangeline goes to live with an eccentric and rich woman named Leona. When Leona disappears without a trace, Evangeline learns that she is the sole heir to the woman's fortune, and she wastes no time in packing a cache of cash and heading for Spain, posing as the refined lady she had always longed to be. To her shock, Prince Danior of Baminia appears and announces that he is her fiancé. He insists that she is the Princess Ethelinda and that they must return immediately to her kingdom where they are to be married. Evangeline's protests are cut short when someone lobs a bomb into her room and Danior pulls her to safety, explaining all the while that evil forces are determined to kill them both to prevent their marriage and the subsequent joining of their two kingdoms. The two set off on the long journey to Princess Ethelinda's kingdom, with Evangeline feeling as if she's tumbled down the rabbit hole. Not only does Danior stubbornly refuse to listen to her, but he's determined to consummate their betrothal. Evangeline's determination to set right this wrong is sadly undermined by her own growing attraction to the powerful, dark-haired prince. Still, Evangeline knows she must convince him of her humble beginnings, for a prince could never truly love a simple girl such as herself. Who is right, Evangeline or Danior? Is Evangeline the Princess Ethelinda or isn't she? And if not, how will Danior cope with the deep love he feels for her? The Runaway Princess has a dash of myth and magic, colorful secondary characters, and a wonderfully heroic hero and heroine. What more could a reader of romance ask for?

I had a hard time getting into this book. I was confused at exactly what she was doing. At first it seemed the author used sex to make her( the false runaway princess) believe that she loved him- the prince. Then later she did start to see him in a better light. Over all a lot of sex but an interesting story idea.

English orphan Miss Evangeline Scoffield has spent her life contenting herself with dreams. But with an unforeseen inheritance, she can afford one perfect summer-a summer she will spend the rest of her life remembering. She buys herself expensive clothes, travels abroad, and presents herelf as a lady of mystery. But she quickly discovers her mistake, for a darkly handsome man appears at her bedroom door, claiming to be a Crown Prince-and her fiance.

One look into her eyes, and the prince recognizes her. She is his betrothed, the runaway Princess of Serephina. All her denials cannot change that, or alter the passion the burgeons between them. To fulfill their destinies, the prince will do anything-abduct her, coerce her, or, best of all, seduce his reluctant bride into his royal world of peril, promise and passion.
