The Princess by Claire Delacroix

"I will wed only my one true love!" declared Princess Brianna despite King Henry's decree that she marry one of the sons of the man who had conquered her family's castle. So Brianna issued a seemingly impossible challenge: He who returned with a gift that made her laugh would win her hand. And thus began the bride quest of the three brothers Fitzgavin. . . .

Burke and Rowan, knights both, set out at her command. Only Luc remained, refusing to indulge the whims of the glorious Irish princess. Even Brianna's legendary beauty could not tempt him—until she invaded his senses . . . and his soul. But Luc thought a princess had no place in the life of a battle-weary warrior who vowed to lay down his sword forever—until he was forced to take up arms to protect the fair maiden who had seized his heart by divine right.

About the Author

A confessed romantic dreamer, Claire Delacroix always wove stories in her mind.  While working as a technical writer for a software company, she began to look for a book to lose herself in for a few hours in the evening.  When she couldn't find the right mix of elements, she decided to write that book herself and unwittingly started upon a new career.

Claire makes her home in Toronto, Canada, with her husband, far too many books, and a variety of undisciplined houseplants.  She is an avid needleworker and often sorts out plot tangles while knitting intarsia sweaters.  Claire travels as much as possible, rides her bicycle everywhere, and cooks with enthusiasm—as long as someone else washes the dishes!

Watch for the next two novels in the stunningly romantic Bride Quest trilogy—The Damsel and The Heiress, coming soon from Dell.

I had never been into romance and happened to run across this book at a yard sale. I figured for a dollar it wouldnt hurt to try adn the book just blew me away it was so amazing, i passed it around to my friends who found it equally amazing. I was so upset when i fininsh the book because it was over but also couldnt wait to read the rest of the series. I assure you this series will make you want to read them over and over!

I read this book as part of a collection some time ago and was happy to see it released as a standalone. Determined only to marry for love, Princess Brianna sets up what she thinks will be an impossible task for her prospective suitors… the first one who makes her laugh loudest and longest wins her hand. The eldest son, Luc Fiztgavin, does not want to participate at all, and so stays behind while his brothers set off on the quest. He busies himself tending a long abandoned orchard, which, unbeknownst to him, was a favorite of Brianna’s mother, and also dear to her heart. Their reluctant, but undeniable attraction, keeps pulling them together. As always, Ms. Delacroix draws you into the story with beautiful descriptive prose, dialog which feels perfectly natural and native to the time period, and a heartwarming and lovely HEA. A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
