The third lost princess. The final key to the treasure. And a battle for the throne.
Growing up deep in the forest as a poor charcoal burner’s daughter, Emmeline has always known her identity as a princess of Mercia, and she lives in fear of being caught and killed. When her adopted father returns from town with news regarding the imminence of war, Emmeline has no wish to join the rebellion against King Ethelwulf.
Prince Ethelrex, the strongest warrior in the land, has done everything he can to prove his loyalty to his father, including searching for the last lost princess. When Ethelrex finally captures Emmeline, the king commands his son to marry the princess in order to win the support of the people and undermine the rebellion.
Forced into marriage, Emmeline has one goal—to escape. But Ethelrex takes his marriage vows seriously, including his promise to love and cherish his wife, and has no intention of letting Emmeline get away. As the battle for the throne rages, will the prince be able to win the battle for Emmeline’s heart?
I stayed up way too late reading this book, and it was worth every blink of my tired eyes today! I just couldn’t put this story down! This entire series is a page-turning delight, every book is better than the last! Not one story slowed, they just built on top of the last, culminating in this final, masterpiece of a grand finale that I didn’t want to end!
Each of these three sisters holds her own, with her own special gifts, and challenges. But if I had to pick a favorite, I’d have to go with Emmeline. Her courage to stand tall and face the unknown is a reminder that true courage isn’t about feeling brave, it’s facing your fears, knowing that God is always with you.
Filled with action, adventure, and wonderfully dynamic characters that at once had me holding my breath and turning pages to see what would happen next! I really enjoyed watching this unexpected love grow between, Rex and Emma. A love that started out as a conscious choice, and a promise. A love that grew as the story progressed. A beautiful reminder that true love is sacrificial, and wants what is best for the other person.
Be sure to grab this superb Lost Princesses series! You will want to add these stories to your personal library to not only share with your friends but to read and enjoy it again!
