DESCRIPTION
Lady Eliza Harcourt, the queen's seer, is in danger of being kidnapped. To avoid such a fate, she will be whisked to safety during a royal masked ball. But when the man doing the whisking turns out to be Thomas Blackstone, she's no longer sure fleeing is a good idea.

Rejected by Eliza seven years earlier, Thomas has changed from the amiable second son of a lowly noble into a cold-hearted mercenary. Not only does she have to put up with the silent treatment, but she cannot be entirely certain he is on her side. The only thing she can be sure of is that he's still bitter about the rejection. And that she still loves him.

NOTE: The Mercenary's Price is a 23,000 word novella. (Approx. one quarter the size of a paperback book).

A little shorter than i hoped but an interesting read none the less. Some key elements of the plot could have used a little flushing out to make for a stronger story. Good characters and spirited dialog make this novella a decent afternoon read. Would love to see more from this author.

This book isn't very long but I was suprised by how much I loved the characters by the end. The hero and heroine had a complicated history together and issues they needed to work through. And the ending! Wow, I didn't see that coming. Great writing and great romance at a very low price. I can't recommend this book enough.
