The second in Julia Londonís The Desperate Debutantes series, she brings us Greer Fairchildís story. Hold onto your corset and enjoy the ride!

To avoid marriage to the first bidder, Lady Greer Fairchild, left destitute by her guardian, must travel to the wilds of the Welsh countryside. There she must find Roderick Glendower, Earl of Randor, also known as the Prince of Prowys; who may hold an inheritance that she never knew existed, if indeed it ever did. But Greer never imagined that he would hold her captive in his castle until she could prove her identity. The Prince of Prowys is known as a brute, a rogue and possibly a murderer, but as Greer comes to know him, she sees in him not a monster, but something else that she may never be able to protect herself against. The further Greer falls under his spell, the more determined she becomes to unravel the secrets of her Welsh heritage and the mystery surrounding the dark prince who dares her to become his wife and princess.

Rhoderick Glendower, inherited the title Prince of Prowys, but with the title comes responsibility and with that responsibility knowing whom he can trust and believe. Lady Greer shows up on his doorstep with a wild story of an inheritance that he supposedly possesses, with no proof of who she is or if this inheritance really exists. Along with this, he has his own problems and mysteries that he cannot afford someone such as Greer to find out. When danger surrounds his castle, Rhoderick can think of only one thing to keep Greer safe. Greer must become his wife and princess, but will she want to spend the rest of her life with a man whom every one is convinced is a murderer?

Julia London never fails to deliver her readers a real page-turner and The Perils of Pursuing a Prince is no exception. Greer is a very determined woman who knows what she wants and isnít afraid to go after it. Rhoderick is a man with a past who is trying to forget and live his life in peace. Needless to say, Greer shakes up his world a bit! With a never-miss-a-beat plot, a mystery to solve and enough sex and romance to melt the 8 feet of snow outside my window, Ms. Londonís newest book will be sure to keep you warm and toasty and maybe slightly out of breath.

A top pick for your winter reading! Enjoy!!!
