The Serpent Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt
Publisher: Forever (September 1, 2007)
WHEN THE DEVIL MEETS AN ANGEL
Country bred Lucy Craddock-Hayes is content with her quiet life. Until the day she trips over an unconscious man—a naked unconscious an—and loses her innocence forever.
HE CAN TAKE HER TO HEAVEN
Viscount Simon Iddesleigh was nearly beaten to death by his enemies. Now he's hell-bent on vengeance. But as Lucy nurses him back to health, her honesty startles his jaded sensibilities—even as it ignites a desire that threatens to consume them both.
OR TO HELL
Charmed by Simon's sly wit, urbane manners, and even his red-heeled shoes, Lucy falls hard and fast for him. Yet as his honor keeps him from ravishing her, his revenge sends his attackers to her door. As Simon wages war on his foes, Lucy wages her own war for his soul using the only weapon she has—her love…
Country bred, Lucy is content with the quiet and tranquil of her life until the day she comes upon a badly injured yet very noticeable naked man. She urges her manservant to help the man and bring him back home with her. Without regard to her safety, she manages to bring the man to good health. But soon something changes and she can't help but fall for this mysterious man.
Simon, a Viscount has been beaten senseless and left for there. The only thing stopping from enacting his revenge has been the careful attention he's received from his now guardian angel, Lucy. He manages to keep all his interest in charming Lucy. But fate has other plans when someone tries to finish what they started by eliminating Simon once and for all.
Simon realizes he must do all to keep Lucy from harm. Lucy does everything in her power to prevent him crossing the line with his revenge. She will do anything she can to prevent from losing Simon.
From the very beginning you will be entranced. THE SERPENT PRINCE is the latest historical romance by the very popular, Elizabeth Hoyt.
You too will be charmed as Lucy is by Simon. Readers shall be happy to see that this heroine, Lucy will not just stand by and let Simon do anything he wants. When the dust settles, these characters will get their happy endings.
Overall, I have to give this charming tale 5 Stars.
