My Rating: 3 1/2 stars
Description: Beloved of her father,
King Dacian, and adored by her people, the Scarlet Princess Monet
endeavored to serve her kingdom well-for the people of the Kingdom of
Karvana were good, and worthy of service. Long Monet had known that even
her marriage would serve her people. Her husband would be chosen for
her-for this was the way of royal existence. Still, as any woman
does-peasant or princess-Monet dreamt of owning true love-of owning
choice in love. Thus, each time the raven-haired, sapphire-eyed, Crimson
Knight of Karvana rode near-Monet knew regret-for in secret, she loved
him-and she could not choose him.
As an arrogant king from another
kingdom began to wage war against Karvana, Karvana's king, knights and
soldiers answered the challenge. The Princess Monet would also know
battle. As the Crimson Knight battled with armor and blade-so the
Scarlet Princess would battle in sacrifice and with secrets held. Thus,
when the charge was given to preserve the heart of Karvana-Monet
endeavored to serve her kingdom and forget her secreted love. Yet, love
is not so easily forgotten.
My Thoughts: At first I had no idea what to rate this one. I really enjoy the books by The Queen of Kissing (Marcia McClure), however, this one was hard for me to decide one way or another.
I am used to McClure's books being light and fluffy and that was what I was expecting when reading this. That's not what I got. This book was far more serious than previous ones. Couple that with her usually cheesy way of describing the love interests and I was just confused.
Still, the book was clean and cute.
