Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The witty second entry in bestseller Dodd's Lost Princesses historical series (after Some Enchanted Evening) chronicles the story of Princess Amy Rosabel, one of the three displaced princesses of Beaumontagne, a small European kingdom. In 1810, Amy is living on Summerwind, an island off the coast of Devon, whose residents have fallen on hard times thanks to the neglect of the Marquess of Northcliff, Jermyn Edmonson. A fierce, impulsive do-gooder, Amy carries out a plan to kidnap the handsome marquess and use his ransom to help the people of Summerwind. When Jermyn's Uncle Harrison refuses to pay the ransom, foiling Amy's scheme, she's left to deal with the irate hostage now residing in her cellar. As the animosity between Amy and Jermyn changes to romantic tension, and they edge ever closer to a sensual love affair, their romance is complemented by subplots involving Jermyn's long-lost mother and Harrison's true intentions toward his nephew. Dodd's intelligent historical romances never fail to please; this latest is no exception. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Kidnapping a man was more difficult than it looked, as Amy Rosabel discovers when she abducts Jermyn Edmondson, Marquess of Northcliff. All Amy wants is for Jermyn to pay for stealing Miss Victorine Sprott's idea for a beading machine and neglecting his duties to the residents of the isle of Summerwind. Amy manages to imprison Jermyn in Miss Sprott's house, where he will have time to review his transgressions while Amy waits for his uncle to pay his ransom. But her carefully crafted plan unravels, leaving Amy with a hostile, hotheaded, and handsome nobleman chained up in her cellar. RITA Award-winning Dodd continues her captivating Lost Princesses series, which began with Some Enchanted Evening (2004), with this wickedly entertaining, lusciously sensual romance featuring distinctive characters and fairy-tale charm.

Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best. A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. When Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published to great acclaim. In the years since, she has enjoyed writing witty, emotional novels for every reader: suspense, historical romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense. Her stories have been translated into 25 languages, won the prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Booklist praises her, "brilliantly etched characters, polished writing, and unexpected flashes of sharp humor that are pure Dodd."

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book in the "Lost Princesses" series about three royal sisters who must flee their homeland in the Pyrenees during wartime, and now - ten years later - are still in hiding for fear of assassination by their country's enemies. This is the story of the youngest princess, 19-year-old Amy, who is currently living with the elderly spinster Miss Victorine on a small English island off the coast of Devon. The islanders are near starvation because of profound neglect by their wealthy liege lord, Jermyn, Marquess of Northcliff. Jermyn has been living a life of leisure in London since inheriting the title from his late father thirteen years earlier. He has left the running of his properties to his uncle. Unknown to Jermyn, his uncle has been stealing from him and ignoring his tenants' needs. Princess Amy decides to take drastic measures and, with the help of several islanders, she drugs and kidnaps Jermyn and imprisons him in Miss Victorine's cellar with his ankle shackled (but otherwise treated and fed very nicely, thank you). A ransom demand is sent to Jermyn's uncle, but he refuses to pay it because he wants the kidnappers to kill his nephew so that he can inherit. Meanwhile, captor and captive are spending a lot of time in each other's company and, although often sniping and snarling, are starting to look rather longingly at one another. Amy seems to be the only person who has ever spoken honestly with Jermyn, which both infuriates and fascinates him. Because of Amy, Jermyn begins to wonder whether he has neglected his duties. And Amy begins to wonder whether Jermyn is the devil she first thought, or rather is he her destiny?

I found this book to be a fast and fun read.

I always love a sassy heroine and a slightly bedgragled yet utterly handsome hero, Jermyn, who is only slightly a rake with a lesson to learn. Great scenary( and I am not talking about the landscapes here), great dialogue. The whole story made me smile, the fabulous intrigue, lust, and the love. I loved this one. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Clarice's tale, but I devoured Amy's. She's more my kind of a princess, the one who speaks her mind and wants to do good and right wrongs, a little Ever After- ish. I mean really. She's strong, great minded, takes what she wants, stands up for what she believes in. Ties an utterly handsome marguess up in the basement with a manacle. You know all in a days work. Witty is an understatement. Amy is Charming, intelligent, and very much the kind of a women we all admire. Of course you have to have a little devilry too. I mean really, who hasn't wanted to kidnap a hndsome man and have him totally helpless to your will, in the basement? hm....

I Can't wait to read Sorcha's adventure. so far they are only getting better. I mean really, who wouldn't want to be kidnapped by a handsome, strong, slightly dark prince that's a little rough around the edges from being imprisoned who has eyes only for you? Especially if you've been in an abbey on an island for over ten years, separated from your family and your home, oh, and you're a raving beauty with normal famale inclinations. uh huh, I can't wait. I could barely keep myself from calling off of work to read, "barefoot Princess," who knows, I may when the final one is released they are that good! Candy for a woman's soul.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on February 1, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
She always dreamed of slaying dragons, but at nine she and her regal siblings Clarice and Sorcha fled their war-ravaged kingdom to live in separate exile in England. Princess Amy Rosabel vowed to fight real dragons not fairy tales creatures as she ardently feels she must intercede when injustice occurs.

In 1810 living on the isle of Summerwind, Amy is irate that the gentry stole elderly islander Miss Victorine's beading machine invention that is now the rage of London high society. Amy holds culpable the Marquess of Northcliff for causing this affront. She vows to teach this arrogant aristocrat a lesson on neglect of duties and injustice, and get Miss Victorine the money she earned..

Her plan works perfectly when she and Miss Victorine kidnap the Marquess, Jermyn Edmondson. Amy chains him in her basement and sends her demands to his uncle Harrison to pay a ransom for his nephew's safe return. She thought wrong as his uncle wants Jermyn dead so he can inherit everything. As his anger cools, Jermyn and Amy begin to fall in love, but she wonders how her heart could betray her with the enemy.

The second Lost Princess Regency is a terrific historical romance that starts off with SOME ENCHANTED EVENING that includes an abduction, chains and manacles. Stockholm syndrome aside, the lead couple are a delightful amusing match-up who fusses and fights, but falls in love with one another. Fans will enjoy their rousing battles even as his uncle betrays him by ignoring the ransom demands with the fondest wish they kill his nephew (think Ruthless People). Book two is a winner with the Crown Princess Sorcha's tale still to come.

THE BAREFOOT PRINCESS is about a kidnapping gone awry. Amy (princess #2 in the series) captures Lord Jermyn, chains him in her cellar and sends off a ransom note to his uncle. She wants the money to help Jermyn's downtrodden villagers, but his uncle wants him dead, so he doesn't pay. Pretty soon she's discounting Jermyn (who is not used to being treated like this) and it gets very funny and very sexy. The sex while he's chained is very very hot and when he gets free and gets revenge it's even better.

THE PRINCE KIDNAPS A BRIDE is book three in the series and according to Amazon, it comes out in December. The sooner the better. I want to see the prince get his.
