This book took a little while to get into. Once you do though, it is an enthralling book.I would recommend it to people who love romance or stories set in medevil times. All in all, not a bad book.

This was an excellent, well written and intelligent book. I loved the intelligent dialog that took place without the main characters hopping right into bed at the drop of a hat. It was a refreshingly different story with quite a few twists and turns. Nicholas and Penny were thoughtfully developed by way of their thoughts and interactions. The 'sexual tension' was there, right from the start only remarkably held in check. This book was a joy to read and will be re-read again.

I enjoyed this book! However, when I started reading the first chapter - I almost put it away - but I'm glad I didn't. It took a while before I really got into the 'story' and characters. This book was harder to read and understand than most other romance stories. But there is more to the story - than just the love story. You don't know what will happen next. (When so many books are predictable.) You can't figure out how the two characters will get to be together. But they do - and I love happy endings.

I purchased this book because of the cover review blurbs by Mary Balogh. I expected an interesting story and real characters like she provides. I didn't get them. The characters were exactly that characters, their actions and romance unbeleivable. I couldn't care about them or what happened to them.

In 1814, Nicholas Alexander, the Grand Duke of Glarien, arrives in England to marry the Crown Princess Sophia of Alvia in front of all the European heads of state. This marriage cements the two central European principalities and has the support of the post Napoleon leaders because Alexander is part English. However, Nicholas¿ villainous cousin Carl has abducted Sophia and his nefarious plan is to reveal to the world that Her Royal Highness rejected Nicholas. This action will probably plunge both strategically placed nations into war.

Instead of heading to London, Nicholas heads to Rascall St. Mary where he is the Earl of Evenlode. He has not been here in almost two decades, but the biggest surprise is to find Sophia here. He soon learns that the woman is Penelope Lindsay, whose mother was seduced by Prince Frederick of Alvia twenty-four years ago. As Nicholas concocts a counter-plot to that of his scheming cousin, he and Penelope fall in love. However, Nicholas is committed to doing what is right for his people and that means marrying Sophia.

MY DARK PRINCE is an enjoyable historical romance that centers on the politics of Europe just after the first fall of Napoleon. The story line is fast-paced, but clearly belongs to the charcaters. The lead couple is a divine pair and the support cast makes a pivotal period on the world stage seem as if the audience is observing it first hand. Julia Ross does such a fine job, the audience will believe the two fictional principalities actually existed.
