Hang on tightly as you read this story with twists and turns you could never imagine! Our hero is Prince Damien Alexander Rothchester, third son in the line of succession to the throne of Cardenas. He is a rather wild gentleman, a rake, who spends much of his time drinking, gambling, and whoring, realizing he will never inherit the throne and can do as he pleases. On Prince Damien’s 25th birthday, however, he will meet a woman who changes and reforms his life. He and Esmeralda Amador, the gypsy dancer provided to entertain in the ballroom, are strongly drawn to each other, but even knowing nothing can come of it, they cannot resist the attraction. A plot against the royal family puts Prince Damien in a position he never expected to find himself, with decisions to make which will turn his life around and take him down quite a different path than he ever anticipated. He must look to the good of his country and also decide on the love of his life. What decision will he make? Will the betrayer be discovered? This is the first book in this Royals of Cardenas series and I loved Damien and Esmeralda’s story. They had so much to overcome on their journey to love. Would that journey take them to tragedy? Or could there be a HEA somewhere along the way? Don’t miss this one! There is so much going on that will pull the reader right in!

I absolutely loved this book! Once i started reading, i could not put it down. It had everything you want in a romance novel! The love scenes were steamy and you could feel the love between the two main characters,Esmeralda and Damien. You instantly get involved in the book. Damien is the son of the king and pretty much does whatever he wants to enjoy life. He then meets a gypsy dancer, Esmeralda at his father's party. Thats when everything changes. And the drama starts, a page turner!I don't want to give anything away but this is a must read!

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review. This is my first book that I have read from Elise Marion and I must say it will not be my last. I enjoyed reading The Rogue Prince. It has a everything you could want in a book. Mystery, suspense, forbidden love, a traitor and deception. The story revolves around Damien the third son of the royal family known as rake. He was the wild child with the reputation to match. That was until his birthday where he saw a beautiful woman that he could not get off his mind. Esmerelda the talented gypsy dancer that stole the heart of the prince. Their love story will pull on your emotions. I found my self smiling and crying throughout the book. Then throw in that someone is trying to kill everyone in the royal family and a vindictive ex-mistress and you have a book that will take you through a mixture of emotions all the way to the end.

This is an amazing read. Definitely could have read this book in one sitting because it was so addicting to see the outcome. It was fast pace (which I love), had some really well developed characters (the depth of Damien throughout the story made this a must read), and its intense introduction (how one word from a dying mother can change everything). Loved the mystery and the added twist of the typical fairy-tale. I also loved Esmeralda! Looking forward to reading more from this Author. I received a ARC of this book from the author for a honest review.

If you love old school Lisa Kleypas, you’ll love this book! This has a rake hero (3rd son in the line of the succession to the throne) from the country of Cardenas that is only reformed by the love of a good woman who also happens to be a gypsy. There are elements of intrigue, suspense, and revenge wrapped in this package. This is the first book in this series and I loved Damien and Esmerelda. They had so many obstacles in the way of their love story, I was really started to get worried they wouldn’t get their HEA (happily ever after). Never fear, they did and it was well earned for all that they go through in this book. Something that I also love to see in romance novels is supporting characters that I also love. In fact, I believe two of them are in the next book. I can’t wait!

Prince Damien Rothchester is a drinking, gambling rakehell. He is the third son of King Adare. Lionus is the oldest and Serge is the second son. Women are at the top of Damien's list of favorite things. He has a mistress, Lady Davinia who hopes to marry him. On his birthday, he is entertained by a troupe of Gypsy dancers. Esmeralda, a dark haired  beauty intrigues him and he must get to know her. Once he finds her there is a deep connection. During this time, there has been an attempt on the kings life. Danger is everywhere. Esmeralda and Damien are in love and plan to marry when an attempt is made on someone else's life. The man in the silver mask is the cause of the threats and dangers. Who is he and why is he doing this? There is so much more to this book than I can put into a review. Plots within plots. I absolutely loved it. First book I have read by this author, but not the last. Full of intrigue, mystery, romance and a Gypsy with " the sight". I received this book from the author for a honest review.
