Publisher's Summary

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 man - 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.

Book 3 of The Prince trilogy but it's totally a stand alone listen with the only link with the previous 2 books is a meeting in a coffee house as the three heroes chat and you realise they were all friends.

As I've said before in other reviews, when you invest 22 hours of your life to a book you hope that investment will be worth it. Well, this certainly was - from Chapter 1 I was hooked and continued to be drawn into a romantic love story that was woven between Simon, hell-bent on a quest to avenge his dead brother by duelling and Lucy a country Lady with a high provincial moral code.

We see Simon (a tortured soul) and Lucy (a smothered soul) being drawn together as she finds him naked and nurses him back to health after being left for dead. As their conversations bring feelings and desires the attraction between them grows rapidly and, as they throw quips and banter with each other, the humour melts their shells and melds them together but Simon has dark secrets and never feels good enough for his Angel Lucy.

However, the very likeable main and secondary characters and events all play their part in eventually tearing them apart with revenge, guilt, murder, heartbreak and desperation making their presence known too. Can love overcome all or will it just not be enough in this well written and well narrated story.

Just one thing - I would have loved an epilogue!

Worth a credit? It's a typical EH book - clever dialogue in a well thought out descriptive plot and if you can shrug off the historical imperfections along with the sexy bits - then you will thoroughly enjoy this long (you could double speed it) but very very enjoyable listen - so that's a Yes for the credit.

Serious Story Line and Serious Love Scenes

What did you love best about The Serpent Prince?

The love scenes were quite steamy while remaining romantic. So many romance novels tend to either be too sweet or too hardcore, but the Serpent Prince is a great compromise.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how there was a pretty meaty story other than the romance.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The only extreme reaction I had to this book was that I had to forcibly make my self NOT think about Simon is a wig and red pumps. I realize these were the style of the time period, but after the Raven and Leopard Princes being so manly I hated when Hoyt brought up him wearing those ridiculous shoes and a wig.
