Format: Mass Market Paperback
Being a Princess comes with responsibility and obligations not all wish to fulfill. Her Royal Highness Princess Emma of Rosewald is pivotal to ensuring the future of her family sovereignty and is being forced into a marriage she does not want. All Emma sees are the bars and constraints her life has turned into and freedom if only for a week is on the other side of that door. Running away should have been easy but nothing is ever as uncomplicated as the plan devised in your dreams.

Emma finds herself at the mercy of Dominic Gregory, Earl of Lyndhurst a kind and considerate man who takes her in not knowing her importance to anyone but himself. Nick creates an atmosphere of fun and lighthearted adventures that Emma never thought possible and cannot wait for the next day to see what it will bring. Emma may always be looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her, but staring into Nick's eyes is so much more enjoyable. Nick wants to protect Emma but the more time she shares his home the more he realizes he wants to protect her but love her as well.

Yet obligation overrides desire; duty calls and love cannot answer; and ducal responsibility never takes a holiday. Emma knows all these things and understands that she did have this time with Nick but it must end. The reality of what her life must be is over riding any other emotion and try as she might the door on destiny is about to close forever. Nick is not going to love her and then let her go; he is going to fight for their long-term future. Even after Nick discovers Emma's secrets, he quickly recovers from the shock to pursue her with an even more determined manner knowing what obstacles he must hurdle, every one of them worth even a moment of her time with a tender kiss.

With a little too predictable plot, The Princess and the Peer has its ups and downs. The hero was simply wonderful but I found the heroine not as enchanting.

Emma is an eighteen year old royal princess from a small continental European County, probably the size of Andorra. She has been cloistered along with her two other Continental princesses in an exclusive boarding school in Scotland. Her brother sends word that she is to be betrothed to an older King and Emma who is dutiful yet adventurous decides to go to London to experience one big adventure about town. Emma is young and she really has no plan and no idea of what London holds for her. She has her purse snatched and fortunately Dominic (Nick) Gregory, Earl of Lyndhurst saves the day by giving her a place to stay until her former teacher returns from a trip.

Emma acts young; in many ways she is not a mature eighteen year-old. She expects Nick to squire her about town and she lies about who she is. Nick mistakes her for a governess and she does not disabuse him of this notion.

Nick has only recently come into the title. His older brother passed away and Nick, who was a naval Captain, must adjust to a new life on land. Nick is charmed by Emma and he is also protective, wanting to behave in a gentlemanly manner. Emma makes that difficult as she is testing his control.

Nick opens up about his past with Emma and she is cagey about hers. They have a relationship built initially on his openness and her lies. They share experiences about London but not a lot of truth on Emma's part. Emma realizes she is falling for Nick and decides to reurn to her old life with a cursory note and not a proper goodbye. Again, these are the actions of a young girl and predictable.

Review Courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A story of love and royalty.

Opening Sentence: Her Royal Highness Princess Emma of Rosewald stared at the letter held within her eighteen-year-old grasp, her fingers grown icy against the cream-colored vellum.

The Review:

In this story, taking place in the times of kings and queens, dukes and duchesses, there lives the Princess of a small country I don't remember ever hearing of and the man who would be her husband, the Earl of Lyndhurst.

Emma is a princess, on the run from her duty, looking for a bit of adventure before submitting to a life as a royal, in a loveless marriage to a man almost twice her age. But on her way to the home of a previous teacher, she is robbed of all of her money. She is saved by a handsome man, who gallantly offers to bring her to her destination. Upon her arrival, they are informed that the former teacher is out of town, thus leaving Emma not only penniless but without a place to go.

As a peer of the realm, and former captain in her majesty's navy, Dominic Gregory feels the need to help out this poor young lady. When he realizes the full extent of her misfortune, Dominic offers her a place to stay in his own home for the time being, and also brings in his aging aunt to observe all the necessary proprieties. For even he can tell this young woman is an innocent that was raised to be a lady, even if she is telling him otherwise.

What neither of these two planned on was their mutual attraction and affection, taking them from their roles of savior and damsel in distress to the roles of two lovers, and the toll it will take on their hearts when the two must separate.
