Overview

Beloved of her father, King Dacian, and adored by her people, the Scarlet Princess Monet endeavored to serve her kingdom well-for the people of the Kingdom of Karvana were good and worthy of service. Long Monet had known that even her marriage would serve her people. Her husband would be chosen for her, for this was the way of royal existence.
Still, as any woman does-peasant or princess-Monet dreamt of owning true love-of owning choice in love. Thus, each time the raven-haired, sapphire-eyed Crimson Knight of Karvana rode near, Monet knew regret-for in secret, she loved him, and she could not choose him.
As an arrogant king from another kingdom began to wage war against Karvana, Karvana's king, knights, and soldiers answered the challenge. The Princess Monet would also know battle. As the Crimson Knight battled with armor and blade, so the Scarlet Princess would battle in sacrifice and with secrets held. Thus, when the charge was given to preserve the heart of Karvana, Monet endeavored to serve her kingdom and forget her secreted love. Yet love is not so easily forgotten...

At first I had no idea what to rate this one. I really enjoy the books by The Queen of Kissing (Marcia McClure), however, this one was hard for me to decide one way or another. I am used to McClure's books being light and fluffy and that was what I was expecting when reading this. That's not what I got. This book was far more serious than previous ones. Couple that with her usually cheesy way of describing the love interests and I was just confused. Still, the book was clean and cute.

I read this one years ago and put it on my Reading Challenge 2016 as my book to read again. I have a thing for royalty and found myself swooning all over again throughout this romance between a princess and a knight. This is one of my favorites by this author. Monet's kingdom is on the verge of war with a neighboring kingdom. To keep her safe, her father sends her into exile with the Crimson Knight to protect her, as her husband, in name only. A huge, hulking knight would be intimidating, for sure, but Monet's heart has always held him close and as they get to know each other, a fun, bantering camaraderie develops and the romantic tension is a delight. A marriage of convenience is one of my favorite book relationships and I love the way this one happens. Who could resist a strong, brave knight and a beautiful, empathetic princess? There are surprises, suspenseful moments, swoony romance, and great characters in this smooth-flowing story. This author is a master at kissing scenes, as well at flowery imagery and descriptions. Content: mild romance (swoony kisses, some vague innuendo); mild-moderate violence (nothing too graphic, but war, war violence, torture, etc). Clean!

This was my first MCM book to read and it was her best work to me.  Some of her books are too light light and sometimes silly.  This one was serious, deep, and incredibly romantic story that takes you back to a time of knights in shining armor.  The way the title plays into the story was brilliant and the whole book will leave you spell bound.

This is another great story by Marcia McClure. It has knights and princesses in it. It reminded me of a fairy tale story with a lot more romance than you see in most fairy tale stories. I loved it and would highly recommend it.
