Editorial Reviews

MacAlister brings wit and charm to her lighthearted fourth Noble historical. Publishers Weekly
“In this mayhem-filled romp, MacAlister delivers a charming, sweet love story, rife with fast-talking and faster-moving characters and a feast of love and laughter.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“MacAlister’s cheeky, charming Regency romp will surely please readers.” Booklist (starred review)
“MacAlister brings wit and charm to her lighthearted fourth Noble historical…The relationship between Dagmar and Leo is filled with raucous humor and spirited dialogue. The lack of intense drama will appeal to readers who care more about fun and engaging repartee.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Alison Larkin is clearly having fun with this witty tale of impoverished but determined Princess Dagmar, whose knight in shining armor arrives to rescue her in the form of Leopold, seventh Earl of March. She finds the wounded and unconscious spy extraordinaire in her garden. Larkin gives Dagmar an endearing childlike voice that is perfect for this smart-aleck sprite. Her portrayal of Leopold is equally clever, imbuing him, by the use of well-timed pauses and well-acted dialogue, with panache, intelligence, and humor. The progress of the romance is appealing and makes the listener laugh out loud. It’s all great fun.” AudioFile
