Publisher's Summary

The most dangerous and desirable man in all of England, Nikolas burns to possess Emma Stokehurst, but the proud, headstrong beauty is promised to another. Still, there are no limits to how far the wealthy, bitter exile will go to win her exquisite hand - though owning Emma’s body, but not her love, will do nothing to fill the empty spaces in his heart.

But Nikolas’s destiny awaits him elsewhere, as passion’s magic transports him to a different place - a land of splendor and romantic dreams. For only there can he experience true ecstasy in one remarkable woman’s tender touch - achingly familiar yet gloriously new - and learn, at last, to love.

    "A great second book to the series!"

    I admit I was liking the story a lot up until it backtracked to 170 years before that point in time and the hero began to live as his great, great, grandfather. It was too much time devoted to reliving the past for my taste. However, once it was done, I realized why it was so important to have that section in the book. It ended up being such a sweet story that I almost felt my heart skip a beat. S Duerden was also as amazing as always. A definite must buy.

    "Tortured romance with a happy ending!"

    I could not stop listening to this book!!! It took me a few chapters to get used to the narrator and in some places I wished she had more inflection in her voice... but she nailed the male lead....dark and brooding. This had more of a gothic flare than other Kleypass novels and I LOVED IT!! You have to love tortured hero's and the women who change them to love this book. Beautiful love scenes, intricate plot, and loveable characters. WORTH A CREDIT!!!

    "Good, but could have been excellent"

    I didn't like this as much as it's predecessor Midnight Angel, but still enjoyed it, even though....





    ****SPOILERS*****



    The hero cheats once, which is normally a 'throw the book across the wall and never finish it' moment for me. However, in this instance, I wasn't as offended as I normally would be. I think it was because it was made clear he didn't do it out of lack of interest in the heroine or a desire for anyone else. The H was so obsessed with the h that he planned to marry her for years (since she was 13) and schemed and scammed to get her to agree to a "marriage of convenience" with him. He was in serious denial and truly terrified of how much he had come to need Emma. It's not an excuse, but it worked within the context of the story and the h is definitely not a pushover, he definitely has to earn his way back into her life and bed. Also, it's not an affair and there's no detail. He goes out, get's drunk, and comes home smelling of liquor, sex and perfume. I assumed he was with a prostitute

    I absolutely adored Lord St. Vincent in Devil in Winter, but never really considered him a dark, villainous antihero as some seem to. Spoiled and selfish, definitely, but I never took his "villainy" too seriously. Prince Nikolas, however, is more the genuine article. He is definitely a tortured soul and at least a borderline alcoholic. And he did have some pretty horrific traumas in both childhood and adulthood to contend with. In fact, a *trigger warning* for descriptions of childhood sexual abuse is worth noting. (Nikolas' father repeatedly and brutally raped his younger brother, who he was unable to protect). Not your typical "one woman hurt me and now I'm an ass" excuse for being broken.

    I am as yet undecided on the reincarnation element. It was emotional and I cried when Nikolas "died" in that previous life, but part of me wishes he would have learned to accept his love for Emma in 'real time'. In fact, I think it would have made this a 5 star book for me.

    "EVERYONE NEED A PRINCE OF HER OWN."

    This is not one of my favorites by LK but it is really hard to pick a bad one. It was confusing in parts but ended well. I am glad I started with one of her other books.

    "Good but not her best"

    I love Lisa's books and this is no exception but with so many to choose from I have to say it was not my favorite. I vaguely remember reading it years ago, but it was not a sharp memory. However, Lisa is always worth a second read or listen.

    Story
    "1800's animal rights ??"

    Classic romance set in 1800's, yet with modern themes, such as vegetarianism and animal rights. Didn't seem to fit well together. The actual romance story is OK with a love triangle and lots of conflict surrounding it.

    Story
    "Great as always"
    What did you love best about Prince of Dreams?

    Usually when an American author is trying to write about Russia, it sounds very one-sided and under researched to me as Russian born. I am talking about fiction here. This story (as well as the other one in the series) was done well in highlighting cultural differences and blending them into the plot.


    What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There was some criticism of ms. Duerden's Russian accent. While her pronunciation of Russian words was not great (sometimes I could not figure out what she was trying to say), her accent representation was fine in my opinion. There are many different accents that you can hear from a Russian speaking person. I was told many times that my accent sounded more French then Russian, for example.

    "OMG! What A Good Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Prince of Dreams the most enjoyable?

    This book has intrigue, suspense, danger, love and humor. Bottom line, it is a must listen and I agree with other comments that you must read Midnight Angel first.


    Any additional comments?

    The characters are great and Susan Duerden is outstanding,
