Publisher's Summary

"There is star quality in this writer!" raves the Romantic Times about gifted author Gaelen Foley. Her love stories are filled with glorious settings, stunning characters, and unforgettable passion.
Destiny casts its hand one perfect moonlit night when Ascencion's most elusive highwayman, the Masked Rider, chooses the wrong coach to rob. For inside is Rafael, the prince of the kingdom, renowned for his hot-blooded pursuits of women and other decadent pleasures. The failed raid leaves the equally notorious Masked Rider wounded and facing a hangman's noose. Then Rafe realizes his captive criminal is Lady Daniela Chiaramonte, a defiant beauty who torments him, awakening his senses and his heart as no woman has before.
Dani can only wonder if she's been delivered to heaven or hell once she agrees to marry the most desirable man in the Mediterranean - until forces of treachery threaten to destroy their tenuous alliance and bring down the throne itself.

Delightfully Charming

This is the kind of audio book that is difficult to put down. It is a fast paced adventurous story that's fun, sweet, heartwarming and (yes!) charming!

This book is not a deep historical's more of a Cinderella type book that every young girl (or young girl at heart) enjoys.

The narration was great. Nell Geisslinger's voice was very pleasant and added to the enjoyment of the book.

If you like old-fashioned fairy tale romances like I do then don't miss out on this one!

Excellent novel. Absolutely a must read!

This is an essential audio book for anyone who appreciates a good love story, and the lure of fairy tales... A fantastic novel with intrigue and passion, loyalty and jealousy. It is immediately captivating. The story of a prince, a traitor, an old secret, and a beautiful young female outlaw. Gabriella is the mistress of her lands; a poor Nobleman's daughter who acts as a "robin hood", stealing from the haughty aristocracy to take care of her poor people and her grandfather. Her lands have been victim of a corrupt Lord, who taxes the people beyond their capacity to survive.

Living in the shadow of his father, Prince Rafi is restless, unforfilled, tired of his meaningless life. He is considered by most to be a spoiled, rakish, ineffective Heir to the throne of a beloved Ascension. His people are devoted to the land and their king, but not to the prince. When the king becomes ill, he forces the prince to marry and give the country an heir. His choice in marriage is a shock to his noblemen and council. He chooses the beautiful outlaw, Daniella, thus saving her from a death sentence. And for this, he gains the approval of the people of Ascencion, who adore the masked outlaw for her devotion to them. For Daniella, it is a dream, a fairy tale come true to marry the handsome Prince Rafi. They have certain attraction, but face obstacles that test their love completely.
Meanwhile, a plot for the throne is being planned, and danger is threatening the King, the Prince and even his Bride.

This is such an unique, intriguing and beautiful tale.
Do not miss this in audio. The narrator is fantastic.
