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!

Listener Opinions

    " A fairy tale just for me. Not sure how well written it being a romance and all but I loved it anyway. The fairy tale slightly reminded me of Merlin's Keepwith less darkness and sorcery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Huckabay | 2/2/2014

    " Good plot, but just felt it was lacking. Have read other books by JL that were better. Hope it was just an "off book". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 2/1/2014

    " I have been reading Johanna Lindsey's books for 28 years and she has never disappointed me :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy Roberts | 1/28/2014

    " UGH... if not for the cover picture, this book would be a total loss. I slugged through this book muttering to myself - stupid book, stupid book. Alana is apparently trained as a male in both academics and weaponry. But with her first look at Christoph, her brain falls out of her head, as well as the clothes off her back. The always moody Christoph all but rapes the girl at their first meeting which some how endears him to her. YIKES! Foreplay is non-existent. He just dives right in there - even while she is asleep. The murder plot was often too convoluted to follow, although there were occasional plot twists that worked. Sub-characters were more entertaining. Story seemed promising in the beginning but ended out to be too contrived and predictable. Wish I had liked it more... "

    " I love all Johanna Lindsey books... Her Mallory books are my favorite.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimi Sharp | 1/19/2014

    " Timeless plot, every little girl dreams of finding out she is really a princess. Well, not this time ... strong characters with a fast-paced plot make it an easy read. Great for a snow day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/7/2014

    " I've always loved the "lost past" types of stories, lost family, etc. or in this case, lost princess. Maybe that's because some days I hope I'm a lost princess, but we all know how well that wish will turn out. I loved Poppie as the reformed assassin that raised Alana as his own. I loved Alana as a strong and independent woman. I would have liked to see her show those skills once she arrived in Lubinia. I adored Christoph as the strong and sexy palace guard. I did find this story seemed to gloss over or become vague whenever the characters became intimate. I can't remember if this is a trait of all Lindsey novels or if this was something new for these characters. Otherwise, great story by a great author! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/5/2014

    " Classic Lindsey. She is one of my favorite authors. Must read if you love romance nivels "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 11/26/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. I found it moved fast and loved Alana she was strong and independant even though her life had been thrown for a loops not once but twice. It moved quickly and found that I had it read in a very short amount of time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 11/11/2013

    " As far as a Lindsay novel, this one is not one of her best. I did enjoy the book but most was just too hard to believe. How so many things can go wrong all at the same time just got tedious for me personally. I love Lindsey and will always be a die hard fan of hers forever! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 10/5/2013

    " Pretty good. I think I would have finished this read sooner, if I hadn't spent so much time at "ogling" the beaufiful man on the cover! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dina Oktariani | 10/2/2013

    " sayang terjemahannya gak asik, padahal ceritanya bagus, untung deh nih buku cuma minjem... 3 bintang saja ya :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amber Humphries | 9/30/2013

    " My least favorite out of all her books. The characters were really dull and did not seem to have any life to them. Very sad since I really love her writing usually. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 jessica wilson | 9/16/2013

    " The overall story was so-so. I did not like the Captain character so it made for a long and slow read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 6/23/2013

    " Not the best Lindsey, but it's been awhile.....What a wimp Alana ia and Christophe is not my idea of a barbarian. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jackie M | 6/21/2013

    " While I liked this book I can't say that I loved it. It just wasn't up to Johanna Lindsey's regular standards in my opinion. She is one of my go to authors and I do hope she redeems herself with her next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacqueline Seewald | 6/13/2013

    " A very enjoyable romance. Lindsey rarely lets the reader down. This novel is no exception. The bodyguard theme works well here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 5/17/2013

    " Found this one day in the bargain area of BN and snatched it up! It was a great read though the ending felt a bit rushed to resolve. It isn't very graphic (which can be a nice change of pace depending on the mood you're in). I enjoyed this book very much and will likely read it again down the road. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 France' | 12/8/2012

    " I have read, and re-read many books by Johanna Lindsey, yet this made me love and appreciate her novels once again. I fell in love with her characters,their wit, charm and guts. Johanna created fun humour,great adventure and a fresh story line! This book is a must read and a must re-read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 10/5/2012

    " Needed to take a break from serious books and relax with a romance novel. Nice way to end the year:-) "

    " A nice solid romance with a fun leading lady and a totally cool captain of the palace guard hero! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 10/2/2011

    " Solid JL. It's clear there will be another book from the same family. Over the last few books it has been clear JL is pulling back on the passion, but without any substantial character building, the books do get formulaic.... She needs to spice it up a little. Bring the heat back... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sammy | 6/20/2011

    " She never fails to write a good book. "

    " I know this book didn't get very good reviews but I really liked it. It was a different storyline than most historical romances with the spy and assasin twist and turns. A quick but enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Filthy Mind | 4/23/2011

    " *Look at my comments*!! (and we ALL know who the next book'll be about.., K..,..) AND!!!: Where IS the SEX??? Where is Chandos, Colt, Warren and ANGEL??? Ggaah, hate the PC of today!!!!! I've been in love with angel since I can remember. But Warrick.. Oh help, he's in my fave book :) "
