“A rollicking adventure about Queen Victoria’s bold artist daughter who finds herself ensnared in a plot involving expert bombers, a murderous pimp, and the former undercover guard to Abraham Lincoln, one of which vies for her heart.” (Heather Webb, Between the Sheets)
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.
This one is a hard one for me to rate. One the one hand, I really enjoy the idea of the princess and the guard sort of romance. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Sarah L. Gruwell
