I'm an Anne Gracie fan and was looking forward to this book. The plot line put me off - I don't like stories about Princesses from obscure made-up principalities - I can't suspend my disbelief enough to put up with names like Zindaria and Crown Princes skipping through the English Regency countryside pursued by evil Counts. Still I enjoyed the rest of her books so thought I would give this one a chance. Stayed up late to finish it and wish I hadn't sacrified my sleep!

This is meant to be the first book in a 'Devil Riders' series about four soldiers coming back from war and presumably finding their one and onlys in the next four of her books. First of all whilst we are told that the hero, Gabriel, is traumatised by war and a nasty childhood and is having trouble settling down, there is really no evidence to support this. He's a very two dimensional character who is goodlooking (never very well described so its hard to picture him), charming and gallant from the first. The shadows supposedly in his past pop up from time to time but not very convincingly.

He falls for 'Princess' Callie (!) at almost first sight on the basis that she has lovely eyes and delicious lips and takes her under his wing. Callie herself is another two dimensional character whose only motivation is the protection of her son - Crown Prince Nikolai - who has a limp and was harshly treated by his now dead father. She was married off at 16 to Prince Rupert, found out he was unfaithful, it broke her heart and she decided never to trust a man again. When he gets shot by evil Count Anton she also decides never to marry again.

The evil Count is in line to the throne and keen to eliminate poor Nikolai who is the only one left in his path.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
England, 1816 - With the war over Lord Gabriel Renfrew, the youngest son of an earl, was adrift with no real purpose. Not caring a whit if he lived or died, Gabriel raced his horse along a narrow moonlit path where he came upon a young woman and her son struggling up from the beach below. The woman, unbeknownst to him was the runaway princess, Caroline (Callie) of Zindaria, and her son, the seven year old Crown Prince Nicolas (Nicky).

Disguised as commoners, Callie was running for her and her son's life, from people who had attempted to kill her son. Left short of her destination in a remote area, Callie had no alternative but to trust the handsome rake who offered her his protection and opened his home.

When soldiers from Zindaria eventually caught up with them Gabriel offered her the only viable option that would keep she and Nicky safe, a marriage of convenience. Only Gabriel was hoping to make it a marriage in truth, but Callie, afraid of love, was not sure she could ever risk her heart to be broken ever again.

*** Ms. Gracie has a remarkable flair for fleshing out her characters, showing them to be three dimensional and giving them necessary motivations for their actions. With Callie, it was clearly understood that Nicky was her life especially after having been bitterly humiliated by her husband who as a young bride of fifteen she'd fallen head over heels in love with! After her husbands untimely death, and several `accidents' started to occur around her son, she knew she had to protect him at all costs.

When Callie was rescued by Gabriel, it was natural for her to be wary - first because he was a stranger and though charming and evidently a gentleman, her motherly instinct to protect made her raise shields around Nicky and herself.

"Romancer" complains that the heroine doesn't want anything "for herself" -- and here I was, so charmed to find a heroine with an altruistic streak, someone who did put public service and the welfare of others before her own interests. How charming and un-modern, I thought. She seemed real enough to me :)

This is not my favorite Anne Gracie book; I'm not much on royalty and imaginary European principalities myself -- but I did find it a very entertaining read, and I would recommend it.

I was surprised to read the other reviews here at Amazon, because the general consensus seems to be that Anne Gracie's other books are (even) better. If that's true, I really must read her other books. (I've read some, but not all)

I loved this book. Parts of the dialog were so great, I had to read them out loud for the pure pleasure of it -- especially the scene where the heroine explains to the hero that some forms of his teasing and banter are actually unconscious put-downs that disrespect her. I love it when an author is able to create strong characters with a few deft strokes, and write dialog in each character's voice -- you can read the words out loud and know which character is speaking, even if you skip the dialog tags -- and in a book with a large cast, that is really quite remarkable. I loved the ever-so-slight accent implied in Nikolai's precise speech, the strength in Callie's direct sentences, the charm in Gabe's more elliptical and humorous style -- loved it, loved it, loved it.

The plot was far-fetched, of course, but vividly drawn. Anyone who is able to enjoy "The Prisoner of Zenda" ought to be able to enjoy this book -- indeed, I wondered at first if she had borrowed Zenda for this story, but no! Anne Gracie's storytelling skills carried the day, and my only quibble is that the princess was consistently addressed as "Princess" rather than "Your Highness." To my ear, that sounded odd -- perhaps because "princess" is so frequently used (in America, anyway) as a nickname for a spoiled daughter.

I am pretty obviously a "voice reader" -- if I enjoy an author's voice, I will devour anything and everything that author writes and not give two pins for the plot. When an author is able to deliver an action-packed plot on top of a wonderful voice, that's icing on the cake. Ms. Gracie consistently delivers iced cake.
