Once upon a time, Miss Victoria Cardiff went to a grand party at the home of a classmate. There she had the misfortune of bumping heads or rather locking lips in a series of sizzling kisses with her friendís half-brother, raffish Raul Lawrence. Staid Victoria has never been able to shake the memories of how she felt while in Raulís sensuous embrace. Three years have passed since that fateful encounter, and Victoria is now a respectable governess employed by an upstanding English family on their way to the small principality of Moricadia. While registering at one of the grandest hotels Victoria has ever seen, Victoria spots an older and even more dashing Raul Lawrence.

Bastard born, and raised without love by his harsh English father, Raul Lawrence is really Prince Saber of Moricadia. Using funds won from his prized race horses, and his gambling, Raul will lead the coming revolution that will free his people and restore his thrown. Raul is shocked when he sees proper, but not so prim, Miss Victoria Cardiff in the hotel lobby. Raul remembers all too well how she hotly responded to him. Victoria could ruin everything as she knows who Raul really is! That is what spurs Raul to kidnap the governess and whisk her away to his mountaintop castle. Itís there Taken by the Prince that Victoria must hold her reserve against Raulís fervent onslaught.

Christina Doddís Taken by the Prince is pure sinful delight! How can anyone resist the rakish Raul/Saber? The spinsterish governess Miss Victoria Cardiff who shows a stiff backbone when faced with kidnapping, angry Moricadians, and a seduction so erotic, that her will to resist crumbles, matches Raulís every move with her own steely resolve. The story is well rounded out with the requisite despicable villains, comic relief provided by many memorable sidekicks, and a fervent romance that scorches right off the pages!
