The second installment to the Princes Trilogy tells the story of Harry Pye -of the coffee and agriculture loving trio- the rough and tough land steward, and the very owner of the land that he manages, one Lady Georgina Maitland.

I have to say, the very first and foremost thing that comes to mind when I think of this series is the unusual heroes. I think I’ve already mentioned this in my review for the first book in the series, but it deserves another mention here because I think this is the first time I read a historical romance where the hero is not a Lord, or a Viscount, or a Duke or any other title that you can think of. No, the hero of this story is a mere land steward, but don’t get me wrong, I only say ‘mere’ for the sake of emphasizing the difference of him. In a very good way of course.

I’ve been hearing of Elizabeth Hoyt for some time now, people whose taste in fiction match mine have suggested this author whenever I begged for a good historical series, so I decided it was time to try her books. May I say thanks to all those friends now? Thank you. I think historical romance has become a favorite in this gal’s book world, so to add a new author to it, one that I’m quite sure I’ll enjoy with her every book, is a wonderful thing. Now, for the sake of appearing cool and not to declare an author as favorite after only one book, I’m going to simply say that this story is among the many I enjoyed immensely. Or, you know, scratch that, I think Elizabeth Hoyt will be one of the favorites.

This was every bit the book I expected, the high and mighty proud man who puts reputation and his station above all else finally being brought down to his knees -literally- by a woman with so much spirit and personality. This was a match that couldn’t go wrong and I’m happy to say it didn’t.

The plot had already written itself from previous books. The Duke of Leighton, Simon, already met his match in Juliana, the feisty and bold Italian half sister of the Marquess of Ralston and Nick St. John. From then on, theirs became the story of acceptance, of their worth, their love and the fact that there’s no escaping the scandal that their lives are going to cause.
