3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun - but not at all believable
'The Perfect Princess' is a historical suspense-intrigue. With these kind of books, the villain's identity is either blatantly obvious or completely unlikely. With 'Princess', it's the latter, and the plot follows a similar incredible path.
This aside, Elizabeth Thornton manages to write rather good lead characters, and their adventures together are as exciting as...

This review is from: The Perfect Princess (Mass Market Paperback)
Challenged by her friend Lady Rosamund Devere a duke's daughter accompanies her on a mission of mercy to Newgate prison to see the convicted murderer Richard Maitland.
Ex-chief of special branch of the secret service Richard Maitland is about to do the impossible and break out of Newgate prison. But when things go wrong he has no choice but to kidnap Lady Rosamund to escape. But now he has her he is finding it almost impossible to let her go. He is determined to clear his name but how to do that with out putting Rosamund in danger.
This was the first book by Elizabeth Thornton I read and now I just buy any book with her name on it without even looking at the back. Althought you knew from quite soon in the book who the main villian was you will find a few surprises toward the end and the relationship between the two main characters is well writtern and you can not help but become involved in their adventures together.

This review is from: The Perfect Princess (Mass Market Paperback)
'The Perfect Princess' is a historical suspense-intrigue. With these kind of books, the villain's identity is either blatantly obvious or completely unlikely. With 'Princess', it's the latter, and the plot follows a similar incredible path.
This aside, Elizabeth Thornton manages to write rather good lead characters, and their adventures together are as exciting as their growing relationship.
A good book for a being curled up by the fire or sat by the pool.
