Three very different sisters beguile society with their beauty and charm, but only one of them must fulfill a prophecy: marry a prince. Who is the mystery Prince Charming, and which sister will be his bride?
All that clever, passionate Ravenna Caulfield wants is to stay far away from high society's mean girls.
All that handsome, heroic Lord Vitor Courtenay wants is to dash from dangerous adventure to adventure.
Now, snowbound in a castle with a bevy of the ton's scheming maidens all competing for a prince's hand in marriage, Ravenna's worst nightmare has come true.
Now, playing babysitter to his spoiled prince of a half-brother and potential brides, Vitor is champing at the bit to be gone.
When a stolen kiss in a stable leads to a corpse in a suit of armor, a canine kidnapping, and any number of scandalous liaisons, Ravenna and Vitor find themselves wrapped in a mystery they're perfectly paired to solve. But as for the mysteries of love and sex, Vitor's not about to let Ravenna escape until he's gotten what he desires . . .
Readers are in for a riotous good time in this Regency-set game of Clue from Ashe (How to Marry a Highlander). Ravenna Caulfield is battling grief over the death of her beloved pet. The last thing she wants is to attend a bride-hunting party for a spoiled prince, but an unexpected encounter lands her in the arms of handsome Lord Vitor Courtenay, making the party considerably more lively. When a guest is found murdered, Ravenna and Vitor set out to investigate the remaining party guests, who are conveniently trapped in the house. Even though Ravenna's and Vitor's banter sparkles with wit and flirtation, their romance takes second billing to the delicious whodunit. The supporting characters are magnetic, particularly the salacious Lady Iona. A strong plot and exceptional dialogue will appeal to mystery fans as well as romance readers.
Ravenna and Vitor are perfectly matched as heroine and hero in Ms. Ashe's second novel in her Prince Catchers series. It's a marvelously entertaining whodunit set in a castle where all of the suspects in a mysterious murder have their own secrets. The wonderful combination of a clever plot, appealing characters, cuddly puppies, romantic setting and intelligent writing is a welcome treat for the reader. This is a sizzling romance including many clever twists and turns - it is thoroughly enjoyable and I couldn't put the novel down. Loved it from beginning to end!
