Book Watch: The Barefoot Princess

The Barefoot Princess
by Christina Dodd
Format: Paperback, 384 pages
Publisher: Avon
Pub date: February 1, 2006
ISBN: 0060561173

Once upon a time... in a kingdom high in the Pyrenees, three young princesses were forced to flee the chaos in their land—vanishing without a trace and lost to their people... until the day a courageous prince can bring each princess home.

Life in exile has taught the passionate Princess Amy to hate injustice, and on the enchanting English isle of Summerwind, she finds injustice personified in the powerful and wickedly handsome Jermyn Edmondson, marquess of Northcliff. Since he has stolen the islanders’ livelihood, Amy decides to steal him. She kidnaps the arrogant nobleman, chains him with his own manacles, and holds him for ransom.

It’s a simple plan, destined to succeed. Surely Jermyn’s uncle will pay his ransom. Alas, his uncle would be delighted if someone killed his nephew and left him to inherit the title and fortune. And holding the furious, guileful, sensual Jermyn chained in her basement provides a challenge to Amy’s restraint... and her virtue.

How could such a little revenge and blackmail go so passionately wrong?

You girls had me in stitches with your bitchin'. I could never, ever be as verbal or eloquent or outspoken as you gals. So keep it up!

I've got Some Enchanted Evening and My Fair Temptress on my TBR pile.

And I'm watching out for Devil in Winter too. I see there're some authors that I like too. Will drop by again.
