    Charming and delightful

    This was a very engaging read. Payton Peppiwell was a delightful young lady, and I quiet enjoyed her. The prince though Jade was a very complex character and I enjoyed watching his walls lowered so he could fall in love. Wonderful romance and I highly recommend it.

    Scandals are afoot at the House of Calydon again!

    In a twist to the normal way of things in a historical romance, this delightful yet emotional story features a heroine who wishes she could marry anyone OTHER than a titled man, after a disastrous broken engagement that ended with her being shunned by the peerage. Now at a house party where her family is determined to find another man with a title for her to marry, Payton catches the attention of Mikhail in the stables, a man who outwardly appears to be exactly what she's looking for (and who her parents will never allow to marry). Mikhail is intriguing, of Russian descent and seemingly as comfortable out of the public eye as she is. In fact though, he carries a few secrets, ones that Payton must be willing to accept in order for them to move forward with a relationship. When the man who jilted her in the first place comes back to try to claim her, will Payton be allowed to choose her own path to happiness? I always enjoy Stacy Reid's stories, with their attention to detail and intricate plots. Besides the unusual twist of a woman preferring not to marry into the English Aristocracy, there is also a rather heartbreaking story-line involving Mikhail's past and a kidnapping that resulted in him being unable to stand a woman's touch. Naturally this has affected all his relationship with women, including ones he would have married, as his need for control of any intimate moments doesn't bode well for a healthy sex life. But something about Payton is different. From the moment he first lays eyes on her Mikhail is enchanted by her courage, her fortitude and her overall look at life. She confides in him, and in turn he eventually confides in her - everything except for that niggling detail of being royalty in disguise of course. The conflict set up is twofold, with the truth of Mikhail's background (both in terms of parentage and abuse) moving the pace of the story quite swiftly even as the two find the chemistry between them won't be denied. The love scenes between them are very steamy (the more so as they involve some interesting maneuvering around Mikhail's intimacy problems) and eventually of course they find a way to get their happy ending. I really enjoyed the two of them together and the originality of the plot. 4 stars.

    Enjoyable and satisfying read!

    This is book four in the "Scandalous House of Calydon", but can be read as a stand alone. There are many facets to this tale, it's powerful but gritty, with charming, challenging and endearing characters and a unique storyline. Its not just a story of a Prince in disguise, with dark secrets, and an American beauty whose been betrayed by someone who professed his love for her. But it's a tale of secrets, heartbreak, challenges, struggles, triumph, passion, love, romance and "The Royal Conquest". Powerful but compelling, a bit complex, but passionate and magical. A superbly written tale that address some harsh realities as well as realistic and historically factual issues. A great read! Enjoyable and satisfying. *Received for an honest review from the publisher* Rating: 4 Heat rating: Mild Reviewed by: AprilR

    Ms. Reid like a fine wine, keeps getting better.

    Ms. Reid like a fine wine, keeps getting better. I am relatively new to her writing. I discovered her back in March when I got the chance to read Sins of A Duke. Her ability to humanize characters by showing their weaknesses is what I love most about her work. With fiction and romance sometimes we as readers get caught up in the fantasy of make-believe. With the Royal Conquest we are taken through the pain of facing emotions without the blinders. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Payton and Mikhail read like a cacophony. They were a mismatched couple that started out a riotous mess but ended as a harmonic rhapsody.
