Book Description

Bestselling author Patricia Grasso's spellbinding new novel blends breathtaking passion and peril into an unforgettable romantic adventure as a prince engages in a game of deception to win the woman he loves. . .

Beautiful Belle Flambeau relishes her independence even as she dreams of a family of her own. When a vicious attack leaves her with an ugly scar, Belle retreats from society, her hopes of love and courtship dashed. Yet the darkly handsome, wounded stranger who seeks shelter on her property seems intent on proving otherwise, beginning a seduction that is slow, delicious, and utterly scandalous. . .

Prince Mikhail Kazanov wants--nay, needs--a loving, nurturing wife, not one of the shallow, empty-headed fortune hunters vying for his attentions. Drawn to Belle, Mikhail uses subterfuge to woo her. But though their heated attraction explodes into sensual bliss, the truth drives Belle away--and into danger's path. Now, as an enemy makes his violent intentions known, Mikhail must find a way to win Belle's trust again. For with their love--and her life--at stake, he cannot afford to fail. . .

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the worst book I've ever read 7 Oct. 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The author uses more plot devises than enough to move her story along, with little or no consideration for the moral framework of the era she is writing in. Modern references creep in everywhere and her characters are no more than cardboard cutouts.

In places it is quite clear that she has a poor grasp of English and who ever beta'd for her suffered likewise.

Do not waste your money on this book. Paint a wall and watch it dry. You will be more entertained.

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful Regency romance 5 May 2007
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1821 the seven Flambeau sisters each possess a different "gift". Belle, for instance, is blessed with the ability to heal people by touching them. She is contented with her lot as she loves gardening, enjoys helping people and looks forward to her upcoming marriage. Everything changes when Belle is the victim of an ugly assault most likely by the serial killing Society Slasher that though she survives leaves her face scarred and her fiancé dumping her.

Unable to cope the once happy healer hides in her garden, her last place she has any enjoyment. Meanwhile Prince Mikhail "Mick" Kazanov and his daughter Bess want a wife and mother. She suggests he try shopping at the "mummy stores" for a spouse who can tell her fairy tales and loves gardening. Mike knows he found a wife that he and his daughter could love, but Belle rejects his efforts to court her so he works a deal with her father the duke, her siblings, and his daughter to assist his plan to marry the woman he loves.

The latest Flambeau sister and Kazanov brother Regency romance (see PLEASURING THE PRINCE and SEDUCING THE PRINCE) is a delightful tale. The story line is action-packed from the onset with the Slasher doing his horrific deeds while Mick and Bess court Belle. Fans of this princely series will enjoy this fine entry as Belle is one of the most fascinating characters amongst a horde of interesting players especially the Flambeau felines.

2.0 out of 5 stars An Easy Read 8 May 2007
By appifany - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I recently bought and read this book and thought the book was alright. It was easy to read and did not require any deep thought. I found that it WAS quite predictable. You were able to guess exactly what was going to happen and you KNEW that there was going to be a happy ending no matter what.

I think that a little more conflict or more to the plot would have made this book a bit more of a challenge and a little bit more entertaining. I enjoy books where the main characters have more spunk. However, it was a fairly decent book that managed to keep my attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tempting the Prince 1 May 2007
By Storm1234 - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
You must buy this book! Ms. Grasso writes another spell binding Flambeau Sister Story mixed in with another tantalizing Kazanov Brother.

You are immediately drawn into Belle's gentle world when tragedy strikes. You feel Belle's soul deep courage and her ache to overcome all the challenges life has thrown in her path and the despair she faces believing no one will love her scarred imperfection. Enter Prince Mikhail who believes, as all arrogant males, he can make her love him. But in the end it is he, Prince Mikhail Kazanov, who is humbled by true love.

The Prince learns that love isn't his to command. In that risking love he must trust that love will return to him. Not an easy challenge while dealing with "The Society Slasher" who threatens the very thing he loves. Ms. Grasso has so artfully crafted an intriguing plot around the strength of her characters that you find yourself turning the pages faster and faster to visit all the charming and intriguing characters from her previous books.

Pleasantly surprising are several subplots that are as intriguing as the main plot. I cannot wait to read the story of Raven Flambeau and Alexander Blake, but first there is the teaser for "Enticing the Prince."

5.0 out of 5 stars The gift of a healing touch. 4 May 2007
By Detra Fitch - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Belle Flambeau and her six sisters each have a special "gift". Belle's is a healing touch. Belle's passion for gardening has made her famous in certain circles. Belle is happy with her lot in life and is about to marry. But it all changes when a vicious attack leaves her with an ugly scar on her face. Belle's fiancée dumps her and Belle retreats from society.

The Flambeau Sisters do not know who their father is (except for Fancy, who is not telling). They only know he is a duke and he always provides well for them. But after Belle's attack, their father comes forward to acknowledge them. Worried for the safety of his daughters, the duke and his wife convince the girls to move in with them. This is not as awkward as you would think. The duke has always cared for his six daughters and the duchess, "Roxie", greets them with open arms. In fact, Roxie treats the six sisters as if they were her own daughters, offering love and words of wisdom. Belle is the only daughter Roxie cannot convince to go out into society again. Belle wants only to be left alone to tend the gardens.

Prince Mikhail "Mick" Kazanov wants a loving, nurturing wife, not one of the shallow fortune hunters that are constantly vying for his attention. His young daughter, Bess, is eager for a new mother as well. Bess insists that Mick search through all the "mummy stores" and get one who knows a lot of stories, loves laughing, plays in the garden, helps with tea parties, and bakes happiness cakes. And upon sighting Belle, Mick knows he has found the perfect woman to be his wife. Problem is that Belle's scar would keep her from allowing anyone to meet her, much less court and marry her. Thus Mick, the duke, and a select few others get together and begin scheming.

Meanwhile, London is being plagued by a murderer dubbed "The Society Slasher". The Slasher's victims are female. He slashes his victim's throat, leaves a gold sovereign in her hand, and takes some of her hair for a souvenir. And Belle just may be next.

***** I found this enchanting story to be a subtle twist on the "Beauty & the Beast" tale. The book caught my attention with the very first line, the Slasher stalking his latest prey. There is so much more going on than my synopsis reveals. Author Patricia Grasso has many secondary characters throughout the entire book; however, I never found myself confused by them all or distracted from the main plot by rambling. There is no "filler" within the pages to deal with. Everybody mentioned is relevant to the story. I became so enthralled by everyone and everything that I felt as though I were actually there. I came to know each character's quirk and attitude. I could guess how each would react to news. And let us not forget the villains that readers all love to hate. This story has quite a few of them for me to despise!

This is part of a series, but I did not have to read the previous novels to enjoy it at all. Yet after reading this book, I intend to search the book store for "To Charm a Prince", "To Love a Princess", "Seducing the Prince", and "Pleasuring the Prince". If they are even half as good as THIS title, I'm in for a treat. Patricia Grasso, you have a new fan in me! *****

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous plot line 18 April 2008
By Lois Lane - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a dissapointment. Too many characters and unbelievable plot lines. Not at all entertaining. You expect some fantasy but this was way out there with all the sisters having "unusual talents". They were all thrown at you, and at the story to the point where you could care less about any of them.
