Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
". . .You'll gladly give up a night's sleep to spend those hours with a book by Anne Stuart."(Romantic Times)
Library Journal
On her way to the Shrine of St. Anne to become a nun and avoid being subject to the brutal whims of men, independent Elizabeth of Bredon finds herself in the same entourage with the notoriously evil Prince William, bastard son of King John, who is headed for St. Anne's to atone for his sins. But something about William doesn't tally with the stories Elizabeth has heard; as one small act of kindness follows after another, she begins to wonder who he really is. This dark, passionate romance takes a former Crusader seeking absolution for wartime sins and a noblewoman too intelligent and strong-willed for the times, makes them a target of a deceptively beautiful sociopath, and, in true Stuart style, spins a sensual tale of vengeance and retribution. Noted for her edgy, intense, limit-testing romances, Stuart is a member of the RWA Hall of Fame. She lives in Vermont. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Good Old-Fashioned Historical Romance

    Given the onslaught of so many light-hearted, politically correct historical romances in the last few years, I thoroughly enjoyed this tale that took me back to a time of knights and lasses in distress. Deception, danger, forbidden temptation - this romance has everything that says 'good old-fashioned historical romance' to me. Loved the heroine's bold intelligence, yet sympathized with all that plagued her. Watching the hero fight his temptation was utterly sexy. So if you're in the mood for the kind of historical romance that isn't always easy to find these days, check this one out.

    Decent Romance

    This book was worth reading. It's a nice steamy romance but I found a lot of redundancy in the character's thoughts and words. 'She already moaned about that, we already know' I thought a few times. I ended up skimming a few times over the parts that were repetitious but I'd still recommend this book for romantics.

    Resident Genius of Romance strikes again!

    It's delightful to finally have another Anne Stuart Historical. Few writers are at home in both medieval sagas or dark, deadly erotic suspense as this writer is. But it has been a few years since we were treated to a Historical Romance from Stuart. Hope it won't be so long until another one comes along! Hidden Honor is simply wonderful. Elizabeth of Bredon has grown up in a house full of men. Her father is an arrogant lout, given to using his ham size fists. Her mother died in childbirth, and since Elizabeth has been little more than a glorified servant to the fifty or so males in her fathers castle. Never time for the things she wishes to learn, she spends her time hiding her intelligence from her less than fatherly father. So she views entering the convent of St. Anne as a suitable choice for her life. No more violent, brutish men, no more endless work for little appreciation. She tells herself she is blest being overly tall and with bright red hair, for no man has ever offered for her. Thus, she will not die in birthing endless children as her mother did. However, her peaceful future is suddenly thrown in turmoil. She is to travel to St. Anne's in the company of knights escorting Prince William to do penance. The illegitimate son of King John, the Princeling is a worthless debauched excuse of a man - inheriting all the King's bad traits. He killed a daughter of a Baron, and has been forced to do penance to atone. Only, when Elizabeth meets Prince William, she's totally puzzled. He is nothing like she expected. For one, he is tall, but not as tall as most of the Plantagenets. He is dark, where they are known for their golden beauty. William is a strong man, a lean, calloused-hands warrior, yet there is a gentleness in him that disarms her. All rather at odds with the soft man who spends his time in drink and debauching maidens. She also notices the Prince is going prematurely bald. Or is he? Elizabeth knows she should hate the Prince, but finds she cannot resist his seriousness, the troubled look in the dark eyes, eyes that seem to look into her soul. He is so kind to her, on their journey, again, contrary to the tales of William being utterly cruel. Very sharp, Elizabeth becomes convinced this man may not be all he says he is. Elizabeth discovers there is more than one man in the party wearing masks as their two-day journey takes a treacherous turn. Their group is attacked by men wearing Prince William's colors! Many of the monks traveling with Elizabeth and 'William' are slaughtered. 'William' and Elizabeth escape, but they must race against time to foil a murderous plot of revenge. Toss in a vow that keeps 'William' and Elizabeth apart, one really wicked super-mean villain, you have Stuart at her best. With vivid, heart stealing characters, this is another keeper on your Stuart shelf! It's a richly textured medieval romance, with Stuart realistically portraying the realities of women's treatment in this period. Stuart once again amazes me with her genius, her insight, her imagination. Don't ever stop, lass!
