Justice is Robert MacKenzie's only desire, but the moment he sees Clarice riding into town he is overcome with emotions that have been buried for far too long. Feeling he must have her at any cost, he invites her to stay with him at his manor house and won't take no for an answer.
Soon Robert knows all of Clarice's secrets and he uses this knowledge to blackmail her into giving her unwilling aid to his own perilous plan. Caught between her need to protect her sister and the man who mixes dark emotions with passionate kisses, Clarice plunges into Robert's world.
As Clarice's beauty draws Robert from the shadows and her bright wit teaches him to live again, the treachery around them deepens. He swears to keep her safe, never suspecting that he will face an even greater hazard: losing his heart to the mysterious princess who just might make him believe in happily-ever-after.

Decent read but perhaps better if unabridged. narration was pretty good, the characters did have their own voices. I felt the ending left loose ends..short of giving away the book i would have liked to know what happened to the sister and the colonel and the kingdom. at least this one had a decent plot to follow and wonder what was going to happen next.
I agree completely. I loved the story and did not actually realize it was abridged until the very end. The story was very interesting, good characters and good suspense. The very end though, without giving a spoiler, is definately hindered because of the story being abridged. I was a little disappointed at the end, but the rest of the story was very good.
