Four of the five daughters of England's Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were regal, genteel, and everything a princess should be. But one was rebellious, scandalous, and untamed.
This is her story. . . .
To the court and subjects of Queen Victoria, young Princess Louise—later the Duchess of Argyll—was the "Wild One." Proud and impetuous, she fought the constraints placed on her and her brothers and sisters, dreamed of becoming an artist, and broke with a three-hundred-year-old tradition by marrying outside of the privileged circle of European royals. Some said she wed for love. Others whispered of a scandal covered up by the Crown. It will take a handsome American, recruited by the queen's elite Secret Service, to discover the truth. But even as Stephen Byrne—code name the Raven—vows to risk his life to protect the royal family from violent Irish radicals, he tempts Louise with a forbidden love that could prove just as dangerous.
In the vein of Philippa Gregory, Mary Hart Perry tells the riveting story of an extraordinary woman—a princess who refused to give up on her dreams, including her right to true love.

The love story was good, but the author basically took the royal family and spun a story about them that was pure fantasy. I suspect much of the technology was out of place, too.Published 15 months ago by Rebecca A. Bunn
I enjoyed this book very much. It is predictable as far as the love story goes, but the mystery portion was not as guessable.Published 16 months ago by Myrna Wood

I liked the premise and the reviews seemed favorable. Unfortunately, this novel read like a fan-fiction, it has no depth. Read morePublished on July 29, 2013 by J. W. family
