The French Prize was a fun light-hearted romance that I really enjoyed. What I really liked was the collision of history and present time. And ‘knights’! I think that says it all…
Dr Olivia Walker is an intelligent woman chasing her dreams… her dreams, though, were about to come through yet they just might undermine her future happiness. She’s a woman who knows herself and is spunky enough to stand for herself –an easily likeable heroine.
Raimund Blancard is the last of his line and determined to destroy the fabled item that had so far taken apart his family. He’s one of those macho alpha male –a bit overbearing & overprotective but as always, with a soft core.
This wasn’t in any way a hard read –a bit of history, some mystery, bit of action, and tons of attraction thrown together for an enjoyable lazy afternoon read. There were a bit of kissing and sexual references but there was nothing graphic so it’s a fairly clean read. All in all, The French Prize was easy on the eyes and easy on the brain.
