Overview

To catch one of history's most notorious killers, a princess risks losing her family, her life-and her heart...

London, 1888: A year after Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee terror mounts in the city's slums. A killer has butchered two prostitutes, the crimes brutal even by London's hardened standards. Rumors of the murders reach Princess Vicky, daughter of Queen Victoria and grieving widow of the German Emperor Frederick III. When her niece Princess Maud visits, she brings with her even worse news-the Metropolitan Police have a suspect. It's Vicky's nephew, Crown Prince Eddy. Desperate to clear her family's name, Vicky rushes back to England.

Detective Inspector Thomas Edmondson believes there is a royal cover-up behind the killings. He will stop at nothing to expose the truth and bring a murderer to justice before he can kill again. But when Vicky joins him in searching for the man who will become known as Jack the Ripper, neither of them foresee the overpowering attraction that will draw together the royal and the commoner-or the danger their love puts them in.

    This is a very exciting story, it pulls you forward page by page

    This is a very exciting story, it pulls you forward page by page.  Perry`s descriptions paint a very vivid and shockingly real picture for her audience.  She takes a one of a kind look at the time surrounding Jack the Ripper`s sojourn in Whitechapel that combines the chill and horror of the time with a look at the lives of individuals who may have lived through it.  This story is also accurately and firmly placed within the time period in question while creating an excitingly unique journey for the reader.  

    I quite enjoyed how approachable the characters are.  Although many of the major players in the tale are royalty or at the top of the profession of law enforcement at a very difficult time they still remain personable and human.  The relationships between the characters tell you as much about the individuals as Perry`s descriptions of them do, making for a well-rounded cast of characters.  I also appreciated the naiveté in the younger characters.  It was very refreshing to see young, sheltered individuals act as such.  

    All in all this is a story that I won’t soon forget.  It was another brilliant, well written novel by Mary Hart Perry that I`d definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    THE SHADOW PRINCESS by Mary Hart Perry is an exciting Romantic

    THE SHADOW PRINCESS by Mary Hart Perry is an exciting Romantic Victorian Thriller set in 1888 London. "A Novel of Queen Victoria’s Daughters" #3, but can be read as a stand alone. See, "The Wild Princess" and "Seducing the Princess". A tale of a German Princess, a detective, the White Chapel Murders (aka Jack the Ripper), romance,danger and a royal love between an older woman and a British Detective.

    Meet Princess Vicky, Queen Victoria's daughter and grieving widow of the German Emperor Frederick III. And Detective Inspector Thomas Edmondson, who believes Princess Vicky's nephew,Crown Prince Eddy, just may be the one doing the killing.

    Vicky joins Detective Thomas on his quest to bring someone to justice, find the truth and stop a killer. But they are in danger also of not only losing her heart but her life. They are attracted to each other from the start and that attraction grows. A royal and a commoner can love survive the difference between their status, their ages and the danger they are in? A dalliance is begun, and so the tale begins.....

    You must read "The Shadow Princess" to find out this and so much more. What an exciting story with engaging characters, and an intriguing storyline. An enjoyable read from start to finish. I would recommend this title especially if you enjoy Victorian romance, Jack the Ripper tales, royalty, and a great story. I enjoyed this title and plan to go back and read the others in this series. There is more to life than just royalty as Princess Vicky shows the reader. There is love of family, country and finding second love. Fast paced and filled with danger and love. Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    RATING: 4.5
