In this "magical" ( Library Journal ) tale from #1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey, a stolen princess discovers her true destiny--in royal duty and in love.

On the eve of her debut into London society, Alana Farmer learns the shocking secret of her birthright. Can it be true? Is she really the lost princess of the European kingdom of Lubinia? Returning to the homeland she and her guardian fled when she was an infant to escape Napoleon's rampaging army, Alana attempts to quell a bloody revolt in this isolated, mountainous country whose customs strike her as medieval! Suspicious that this beautiful newcomer is a wily imposter or a spy scheming to depose the king, Christoph Becker, the captain of the palace guards, arrests Alana and vows to draw the truth from his alluring prisoner, even if he must lay his life on the line to protect her from harm. Now, as a fiery passion flares between Alana and the man who has wrongly imprisoned her, the fate of a nation rests in their hands and on their hearts.

What happened to Johanna Lindsey? I used to love her books for the plots and interesting characters. Her books of late, including this one, have been throwbacks to the cliche neanderthal hero, helpless virgin plots of the 80's. Even though the "intelligent" heroine is supposed to be trained in the martial arts, like sword fighting, she is, of course, no match for brute strength and irresistible caveman magnetism of the "hero". What a bore. I couldn't finish it. Don't waste your time.

I absolutely adored the Christoph Becker and Alana. Normally I enjoy the Malory series the best, but I was extremely happy to have made the mistake of buying the book. It was amazing.

I have read every book by Johanna Lindsey and she is one of my favorites. This book was not her best but was still very good and worth reading.

58 million books sold makes Lindsay one of the most popular romance writers. This is on my to read later list.

I have read earlier works and look forward to seeing how Lindsay style has developed.
