Product Description

In the scorching finale of Anna Randol's wickedly tempting Trio series, the Wraith takes on a mission— and a princess— he'll never forget . . .

Ian Maddox, aka the Wraith, is happy to leave his life as a spy— as soon as he discovers who's been trying to kill his friends. All clues lead him to the bedroom of an exiled princess. Yet Princess Juliana isn't the simpering royal he expects, and this irresistible beauty agrees to give him the information he seeks . . . for a price.

Princess Juliana has never cowered—not even as she fled her burning castle in the midst of a rebellion—so she won't tremble before the darkly charismatic man who appears in her bedchamber and holds a knife to her throat. Instead, she bargains with the infamous spy to help her retrieve sensitive documents and restore her kingdom. But Juliana quickly finds that Ian is no humble servant, and she never imagines that lessons in thievery will lead to schooling in seduction.

About the Author

Anna Randol was raised in Southern California. When she was eight, she decided her diary was too dull and decided to write as if she lived on a raft in the Amazon with her imaginary dog, Cream Puff. At twelve, Anna decided racing down rapids with only a dog for company might get rather lonely. Handsome British heroes began to appear on her raft, and her love of adventure-driven romance was born.

Summary (from Goodreads):

Ian Maddox, aka the Wraith, is happy to leave his life as a spy— as soon as he discovers who's been trying to kill his friends. All clues lead him to the bedroom of an exiled princess. Yet Princess Juliana isn't the simpering royal he expects, and this irresistible beauty agrees to give him the information he seeks…for a price.

Princess Juliana has never cowered—not even as she fled her burning castle in the midst of a rebellion—so she won't tremble before the darkly charismatic man who appears in her bedchamber and holds a knife to her throat. Instead, she bargains with the infamous spy to help her retrieve sensitive documents and restore her kingdom. But Juliana quickly finds that Ian is no humble servant, and she never imagines that lessons in thievery will lead to schooling in seduction.

What I Liked:

I don't know why the overall Goodreads rating of this book isn't higher. I LOVED this book. There were so, so many wonderful things about this book that I really just did NOT expect. Or maybe I've been starved of a fantastic historical romance novel for too long. But this book seemed perfect to me. The characters are lovable, the plot was dynamic and interesting, the chemistry was steamy but not over the top, and this book was genuinely FUNNY.

Julianna makes a deal with "Wraith" - Ian: help her learn to be as sneaky as a thief, and she'll give him information about the "Trio" that he is a part of. Julianna needs to steal letters from a duke in order to save her kingdom. Ian needs information from her - he needs to know about who wants him dead (most recently). Eventually, Julianna and Ian decide to work together to get the letters, and Ian is hired as her footman. The pair, as well as the rest of Julianna's court, travel to the culprit's home (for a ball), and there, Julianna and Ian will attempt to steal the letters, and save the kingdom.

I LOVE that there is an actual plot to this book! This book could completely stand alone as a historical fiction novel, and does not necessarily need the romance! Of course, the romance was AMAZING and I loved it, but I'm just saying - the plot of this book was intriguing and interesting, and I wanted to know more. I wanted to keep reading, to find out about the letters, the tricky duke, the lying family member...

The characters are completely lovable. Julianna is feisty and fearless, Ian is clever and witty and so good at what he does. The two of them make a very interesting pair, both with strong wills. HOWEVER, I love that Ian is not overly alpha and macho, like most historical romance male protagonists appear to be. Ian is more laid back and chill, and it's so appealing. Everything is a joke to him, but not actually. More like, he has something witty or funny to say about everything.

Which leads me to my next big point - this book is so FUNNY! It's hilarious! The author has the characters doing silly or hilarious things, and she also has them saying silly or hilarious things. I seriously could not get enough of Julianna and Ian's banter, but also the actions of the two of them. Love!

I found that in this book, the chemistry was not flaming hot or flying off the page. This was different, but I really liked this, because there wasn't a sex scene or almost sex scene after every chapter or so. In fact, the author had a very, very few amount of sex scenes in this book. Don't get me wrong, the chemistry is HOT. But the author finds subtler ways than straight-up intercourse to make this book steamy.

I really enjoyed this book, you all. It was just about perfect. The ending comes in a rush, but it was a super great ending. Everything comes together in the end. If you get confused about something while reading, keep reading, because everything makes sense at the end. Or at least, that's how it was for me. So great!

What I Did Not Like:

I really have nothing to say in this section. Perhaps a few anachronistic phrases every now and then, but honestly, I am so willing to look past them at this point.

Would I Recommend It:

I would HIGHLY recommend this book, to historical romance lovers especially. Keep in mind, I did NOT read the previous two books in this series. But you bet I want to now. This book knocked my socks off!

Rating:

5 stars. I can't believe I waited this long to read this book! Shame on me. I loved it so much!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 starts - way better than its predecessor book 8 Nov 2013
By Suzy Q-ed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well, I asked and I received; I fell in love with this hero back in the predecessor book (Sins of a Ruthless Rogue) and posted that Ian Maddox totally stole the show from the leading hero and wanted to read his own story and the author complied, and for that Thank You.

The story continues in that Ian Maddox has to protect the identity of his fellow spy members of "The Trio." When their covers are blown, Ian takes it upon himself to weed out the traitors and finish off those that pose a major threat to their lives and safety. This character was amazingly introduced in "Sins of a Ruthless Rogue" as a supporting character which totally stole the show in that book and continued to do so in this book. This character does not falter or waiver for anything or anyone, which made him so realistic. I fell in love with him all over again in this book. He maintained his bad-axx qualities and never hesitated to take matters into his own hands- no matter how ruthless or difficult; he knew when he had to kill because the alternative to "be killed" is just not an option. He came across as the "007" of his time! When he fell in love with the Princess (Juliana Castanova) from Lenoria (fictional country bordering France and Spain during the Napoleonic Wars) he surely fell hard, but controlled his deepest urges as the trained spy that he is. Oh, he does hint and throws seductive innuendoes to our virginal princess and she fires them nicely back at him, but he knows his place in society enough to never cross the line and disrespect the princess;-- this made him so admirable because we know how much he suffers from not being equal in society with Juliana; royalty is usually matched to other royalty and not to spies.

The Princess Juliana, although virginal, was indeed strong-willed, classy, confident and spunky; after all, as a child she had to get her and her brother out of their burning castle safely into exile. These two lovers did not play that formulaic cat and mouse game where they toggle back and forth between their unearthed feelings and hold back in saying "I Love you" like it's done so tritefully ad nausea in most romance books. Their conversations were extremely witty and Ian is a flirt to the fullest, but when he cares for someone (from his valet, to an abused homeless girl, his fellow spy members, and even the princess) he will unleash his full wrath the enemy with no holds barred!

And what an intense plot! - I don't want to give it away, but readers will not be disappointed of the political tale that is excitedly woven into this story. There is plenty of action, drama, twists and turns that you won't see it coming when it's happening. Yes, this book is filled with great action, suspense, chills and thrill!

Even though our couple really don't consummate the relationship until almost at the end of the book, the times they do come together to engage with their emotions are just as sexy and come on, it takes a real gentleman to know that he cannot spoil a princess that is destined to marry into other royal families-- Yes, our hero holds great respect for Princess Juliana and although he has deep urges, he is extremely noble; after all, our leading lady is a princess and our hero is a spy pulled out of England's slums.

I hope our next story is about Kate (The Russian Princess that assisted in aiding and abetting the Trio), because when we last heard of her in "Sins of a Ruthless Rogue, she found out that the man she loved and believed was her Prince Sergey now missing in action is a really British spy hiding out in Whales.

4.0 out of 5 stars The End of the Trio! 7 Nov 2013
By Kimberly Rocha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
*Pouts* It's over, it's really over.. After the first book in the Sinners Trio, Sins of a Virgin by Anna Randol shocked me, I put my reservations aside and found this book to be awesome. I happily awaited for the second book to be released and loved Sins of a Wicked Rogue to be intriguing. Now at last third book is out and Sins of a Wicked Princess is another winner.

Ian Maddox, or Wraith as he is known by those who know of the Trio of spies that used to work for the British government. Each of the three spies were recruited from the gallows and given the choice to live if they gave their lives in service to the crown. The government has now disavowed knowledge of the Trio and now they are on their own. Clayton and Madeline are now happily married and living productive lives but Ian is still uncertain of his fate. Frankly, he is quite content to leave the life of being a spy, but first he must discover who is behind a hit list on his former associates.

Princess Juliana is a semi-exiled ruler of a small country that is sought after by the French and the Spanish. When Wraith appears one night in her bedroom demanding to know who wants his friends killed, Juliana has no idea what he is talking about. Somehow the Trio has something to do with the toppling of Juliana's country. She soon finds that there is another plot to depose her of her throne and her brother may be at the center of the plot along with an unscrupulous and immoral Duke. In addition, the sparks between Ian and Juliana fly as soon as they meet. Juliana knows she must do her duty to her country and marry someone of her ilk, and Ian believes he is not for her, but at every turn there is heat between them.

Once the lines are drawn, Ian and Juliana team up to each solve their own dilemmas. Once in the evil Duke's domain both parties have to fight to stay alive and seek or deny their attraction at the same time. This tale of foreign intrigue is bereft with danger and deception, even from Juliana's own family. Once Ian's secret of what happened to Juliana's family during the fall of her country comes out, will Juliana become the cold and proper princess she has been rumored to be, or will she look beyond the duty he thought he had to do and see the man Ian truly is?

Anna Randol has done is again and I am very sorry to see the end of the Sinners Trio. Anna's knack for danger and suspense make this not just a romance but a wonderful mystery as well. Ian's snarky mouth and Juliana's not so proper princess who can pick locks, are fabulous characters. I loved how both of these characters at first thought they had to part ways, but then with the realization they couldn't be happy unless they were together, they both fought for what they truly wanted. In the end the spy and the princess overcome their social differences, making The Sins of a Wicked Princess a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to a great trilogy 4 Nov 2013
By TracyJane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been looking forward to Ian's story since the first book. He was the most interesting of the trio to me. We saw glimpses of him, but never got to know him - which of course made me want to know him even more!

Honestly, I didn't know what to expect with his past and it certainly wasn't the story that was told!

Julianna was Ian's perfect match. I can't imagine a better heroine for him. She was smart, sassy, loyal and adventurous. Together they were sensational!

I found the plot to be original and there were so many twists and turns, I was constantly wondering how they were going to be able to be together in the end.

My only complaint would be that we barely heard about the other members if the trio and there was no epilogue - I wanted more!

I hope there is a book for the Duke of Abington - there is a man who has a story that is begging to be told!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well DOne!! 31 Oct 2013
By My Book Addiction and More - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
THE SINS OF A WICKED PRINCESS by Anna Randol is an exciting Regency Historical Romance. #3 in the "Sinner's Trio" trilogy and the conclusion of this fast paced, adventure filled story and what a conclusion! Can a Princess of a long forgotten Kingdom find her Prince Charming in a charming but dangerous spy? You must read "The Sins of a Wicked Princess" to find out for yourself rather fairy tales do really come true. Join Princess Juliana, the heir to a Kingdom,which is in danger and Ian Maddox, aka the Wraith,who has left his spying days behind him,at least,until he learns who betrayed his team and his trying to kill him and his friends. Filled with lies, mystery,suspense,secrets, betrayal, treachery, treason, passion and the greatest gift of all, love. The passion fairly sizzles off the page between Juliana and Ian! Princess Juliana finds the greatest challenge of all,is her master spy, Ian. For you see Ian,(Wraith) is out to destroy the one who attempted to kill him and his friends....her younger brother,oh, but he has meet his match with Princess Juliana. Juliana's brother has been manipulated by a traitor in more ways than one. A powerful story on the powers to be and the lies,and deceit that follows when the greedy gets greedier on the backs of the poor and defenseless or so it would same. Ms. Randol is a masterful storyteller. One who draws her reader into the story and holds them spellbound. I love her stories and "The Sins of a Wicked Princess" was a true prince of a story. For a pauper may just become a prince after all!! Well done!! Received for an honest review from the publisher and Edelweiss.
