#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey weaves a marvelous adventure set in the tumultuous world of continental royalty, where a stolen princess discovers a kingdom she was meant to inherit--and a passion made to rule her heart.

Forced to flee Napoleon's rampaging army on the continent, orphaned Alana Farmer and her eccentric guardian make a new home for themselves in London. There, Alana enjoys every privilege a daughter of the nobility could hope for, plus an education fit for a queen. Now, on the eve of her debut into London Society, she learns the shocking secret of her birthright. Can it be true? Is she really the lost princess of the European kingdom of Lubinia? Persuaded by her guardian to return to their homeland to quell a bloody revolt, Alana finds herself in an isolated, mountainous country whose customs strike her as medieval!

With controversy and intrigue brewing around the beautiful newcomer, Christoph Becker, the captain of the palace guards, arrests Alana on suspicion that she is either a wily imposter or a seductive spy working for the shadowy figures determined to depose the king. No stranger himself to seduction, Christoph uses every means at his disposal to draw the truth from his alluring prisoner, even if he must lay his own 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.

In each of her dazzling bestsellers, Johanna Lindsey's "mastery of historical romance" ( Entertainment Weekly ) shines stronger than ever!

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.
