first bidder lies in journeying into the untamed Welsh countryside in search of an inheritance she s not sure even exists one reportedly controlled by Rhodrick Glendower, Earl of Radnor, also known as the Prince of Powys Rumor has it that the prince is rough, ruthless even a murderer But Greer never imagined that the brute would refuse to let her leave his remote castle until she has proven her identity Or that she would find herself powerfully attracted to this passionately virile man whose gruff demeanor belies a proud and sensual nature The further Greer falls under his spell, the

stars worthy though I m huge fan of Beauty and the Beast tales, and this one was a perfect example of this theme Adding to the fact that Julia London is a favorite author of mine, it isn t a surprise that I ended loving this.Greer goes to Wales to find her late uncle and persuade him to sign over her inheritance, modest as it may be In her trip there she meets Mr Percy who convinces her to go on, even when her companion dies and she discovers that her uncle is dead Together they arrive at the Prince s of Powys castle, who s a distant cousin of Mr Percy but a recluse and as Mr Percy s informed her, a possible murderer Greer is initially scared of the Prince, who s older than her and not attractive at all in his ragged appearence Percy fills her mind with stories about how ruthless the Prince is, feeding her terror However, when she finds herself close to him, she surprisingly discovers that she s attracted to him At some point Percy leaves the castle with Greer behind, who now is left alone with the Prince and her reputation in tatters Slowly she comes to trust himandand her fear lessens but they both hide facts from each other which make their relationship difficult They find themselves reluctantly attracted to each other, but their distrust makes them fight regularly Could this tender, kind hearted man Greer has come to know, be actually a murderer And is this clever woman whom she claims to be or is she really a swindler out to get his money My heart ached for the Prince I m a sucker for tortured heroes and he was a perfect example of one Having survived some tragedies in his life, insecure about his appearance, especially compared to beautiful Greer, he has trouble opening his heart In the end, the attraction he felt for her was too much to ignore and when Greer hurt him, I ached so much for him, it brought tears in my eyes.I know that this book was not perfect Greer was introduced as the witty of the three cousins but she rarely acts like it Prince s attraction to her seems to be mainly based on her lovely bosom for the most part of the book, rather than her clever mind or kind nature Greer was too harsh with him near the end, causing too much pain to both of them, but especially him But not one of those facts made me think of rating it with less than 5 stars My emotions were engaged fully during the entire time, I got misty eyedthan once and read some lines, some exceptionally tender and emotional lines were the hero thinks or talks to Greer, at least three times trying to memorize them I also love the fact that London, in all her books, spends a great deal of time writing the story from the hero s perspective and offering unique insights to what he s actually thinking at any time.This one goes to my keeper shelf and I expect to re read it soon 4 solid Beauty and the Beast stars The Perils of Pursuing a Prince is the second book in the Desperate Debutantes Trilogy and a fun, romantic, sexy tale It was my first taste of Julia London s writing as well as my first listen of Anne Flosnik s narrating, and I enjoyed both very much DescriptionLady Greer Fairchild hopes to avoid guardian Lord Downey s plan of marriage to

read, it took me awhile to warm up to Greer and Rhodrick, but the story itself was intriguing and is what kept me reading Eventually, though, we learn that all the things that make them hard to connect with are, once understood, the same things that make them endearing people I really did come to adore them, their complicated, emotional story, and their happily ever afterReviewed for Affaire
