The Wild Princess A Novel of Queen Victoria's Defiant Daughter By Mary Hart Perry....R&G




This is her story. . . .
To the court and subjects of Queen Victoria, young Princess Louise—later the Duchess of Argyll—was the "Wild One." Proud and impetuous, she fought the constraints placed on her and her brothers and sisters, dreamed of becoming an artist, and broke with a three-hundred-year-old tradition by marrying outside of the privileged circle of European royals. Some said she wed for love. Others whispered of a scandal covered up by the Crown. It will take a handsome American, recruited by the queen's elite Secret Service, to discover the truth. But even as Stephen Byrne—code name the Raven—vows to risk his life to protect the royal family from violent Irish radicals, he tempts Louise with a forbidden love that could prove just as dangerous.
In the vein of Philippa Gregory, Mary Hart Perry tells the riveting story of an extraordinary woman—a princess who refused to give up on her dreams, including her right to true love.

I typically avoid all things history, it's just not my thing.  When the opportunity arose to read this historical fiction book I took it and I couldn't pinpoint why.  There was something in the description of the book that grabbed me.  I am glad I picked this one because while it was historical it was also fun.  Who doesn't love a fighter, a rebel?  The story of Louise is a good one and this book is a quick read!
