The Cover is Beautiful and I want it painted on my bedroom wall-( 1996 Zebra books cover). When I saw the cover i was in love.

I was looking for a medieval book with a tough heroine and and alpha male-and boy did I find it.

GREAT book-The Heroine,Ryen is a Knight/warrior woman but not so much that... ...more

This is a book I read a long time ago, but for some reason it has stuck with me. (I stole this one from my mom-lol) It was one of my first Historicals, and one of the first books that I read several times (I think I was a sophomore in high school!-1996) and I can't believe I got rid of it! If you... ...more

I truly enjoyed this although, honestly, I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it quite as much if I'd read it instead of listening to the audio. It was very long and I sit in front of a computer all day reading tiny lines of code, my poor eyes and head are losing their tolerance for long tomes such... ...more

I love medieval romance, and this is the second time I've read the book-something I rarely do! There is lots of action and excitement that carries the reader from page to page. The author did a good job of portraying the hero, Bryce Princeton.
My only criticm would be that the numerous twists, tur... ...more

Great premise, but not so good execution. I was really looking forward to a strong kick-ass heroine but she seemed to forget that was what she was. Most of of the time she was whiney and indecisive. This was a 2.5/5 star rating for me but I'll round up for the effort.

I really loved The Angel and the Prince, written by Laurel O'Donnell! Her main heroine , Ryen de Bouriez, is no ordinary woman, she is a French lady knight, AKA the Angel of Death, who loves wearing shining armors and sword challenges. She was only fifteen, when the king knighted her. Quite a bea... ...more
