Let’s face it, we’re all suckers for royalty. Give us castles, princes, princesses and romance, and we’re all set for a couple of hours of sheer escapism. And that is exactly what you get with this sprightly little read from Silhouette and Elizabeth Bevarly.
Taming the Prince is the job that falls to Sara Wallington, a highly trained escort-cum-bodyguard, who is assigned to see that Shane Cordello gets to his destination. Once there, the matter of his “prince”hood is to be determined. And of course, this involves a “small mythical European country” called Penwyck. (Some of us fondly recall Fenwick, which invaded England in a charming film called “The Mouse that Roared”. Same place maybe?)
Well, back to the romance – it’s not too challenging to realize that Mr. Studly-and-Handsome construction worker-slash-possible prince is going to be too much for Miss Elegantly Unrufflable English to resist. And sure enough, they tumble headlong for each other with the usual ups and downs. One of the downs involves a hi-jacking however, and this adventure does meander slightly from the path of true love over to the James Bond side of the house.
However, it’s a quick read, has plenty of delightful romance between two very nice characters, and it’s certainly a fun way to spend a couple of hours. I recommend it.
