Abducted By A Prince-Olivia Drake

Abducted By A Prince Olivia Drake St. Martin's, Apr 29 2014, $7.99 ISBN: 9781250002105 In London Damien Burke owns the most popular gambling establishment in town, Demon’s Den. When Viscount Stratham admits he cannot pay his debt, Damien offers to forgive the bill if the haughty aristocrat returns the key he stole from him when both attended Eton. Damien gives Stratham one day or he will abduct and ruin the lord’s innocent sister Lady Beatrice. When Stratham fails to give him back his key, Damien abducts Lady Beatrice. Only the victim insists she is Beatrice’s poor relation companion Ellie Stratham. Marooned by the weather in Scotland, he realizes his error as they get to know each other and fall in love. Ellie vows to help him retrieve his key and solve its mysterious use; Damien pledges to assist her with publishing her children’s book of illustrations and getting her out of this potential scandal. The third Cinderella Sisterhood historical romance (see Stroke of Midnight) is an engaging nineteenth century tale due to the strong lead couple. Though the audience anticipates what is coming and most of the secondary characters are extremely selfish and mean; series fans will enjoy this entry as we delightfully know what If The Slipper Fits denotes.
