Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darlene from Langley This book has all the elements to keep you enthralled from beginning to end. Darius is one of the most complex and lovable heros I've ever read about. You meet him in the first book of this series The Pirate Prince as a young boy and I couldn't wait to read his story! It was exciting to really like both the hero and the heroine in this story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This book was even better than her first. I loved it. You absolutely fall in love with the characters. I love how the author created Darius so strong yet he shows such vulnerability. The plot I found very interesting. This was a great read.

Read from the Book

May 1805 The sound of her rapid, shallow panting filled the narrow space between the box-hedge walls of the garden maze. The hedges towered over her, closing in on her, and the pounding of her pulse was so loud in her head she knew they would hear. She inched down the narrow lane, her bare toes creeping silently over the cool, lush grass, her chest heaving. Constantly she looked over her shoulder. Her whole body was shaking, her hand bleeding, maybe broken from punching Philippe in his smug, sneering face with the sharp edge of her huge diamond ring. But at least she had managed to throw herself out of his iron grasp and had torn into the maze, where she thought she could evade them. She dared not call out for help because only the three men would hear. No one else was outside on such a night, when the breeze spattered rain from a sky deepest indigo smeared with gold clouds. The cicadas roared in waves, while the wind, as it rose and fell, brought fragments of a tinkling minuet spilling out over the vast gardens and the royal park from the ball in progress--her engagement party. Her fiancé had been unable to attend. She jerked her face wildly to the left, hearing movement on the other side of the dense hedge. He was right there. The acid taste of the wine she''d drunk rose in the back of her throat. She could see the shape of him, tall, bedecked in his finery.
