Reader Review: The first of Elizabeth Hoyt's novels ever read by me - and because of this one, I'll be reading more! Ms Hoyt doesn't put a foot wrong - with a delightfully appealing couple, their hot & heavy romance, laugh out loud moments and some interesting secondary characters.
There comes a time in a womanrsquo;s life when she must do the unthinkable - and find employment. For the widowed Anna Wren, that means taking a job as female secretary for the Earl of Swartingham. Secretaries are always male - never female - as Anna well knows but the real downfall of her career is the realisation that she is falling in love with Edward de Raaf - the Earl. But when she realises that he is going to visit a brothel in London to take care of his 'manly' desires, Anna sees red - and decides to take advantage of the opportunity to also take care of her 'womanly' desires - with the Earl as her unknowing lover. But the Earl has another reason for going to London. He is formalising his betrothal and trying (with little success) to forget about a secretary that has no right being female. Unhandsome, he knows that no woman wants him. Except for the mysterious lady with whom he spent two unforgettable nights at Aphroditersquo;s Grotto, the most scandalous brothel in London. But when Annarsquo;s plan is revealed, a bit of blackmail is thrown into the mix, a proposal is rejected and even the Earl himself will be unprepared for the intrigues that ensnare them.

The Raven Prince
Chapter OneOnce upon a time, in a land far away, there lived an impoverished duke and his three daughters.... -from The Raven Prince
LITTLE BATTLEFORD, ENGLAND
The combination of a horse galloping far too fast, a muddy lane with a curve, and a lady pedestrian is never a good one. Even in the best of circumstances, the odds of a positive outcome are depressingly low. But add a dog-a very big dog-and, Anna Wren reflected, disaster becomes inescapable.
The horse in question made a sudden sideways jump at the sight of Anna in its path. The mastiff, jogging beside the horse, responded by running under its nose, which, in turn, made the horse rear. Saucer-sized hooves flailed the air. And inevitably, the enormous rider on the horse's back came unseated. The man went down at her feet like a hawk shot from the sky, if less gracefully. His long limbs sprawled as he fell, he lost his crop and tricorn, and he landed with a spectacular splash in a mud puddle. A wall of filthy water sprang up to drench her.
Everyone, including the dog, paused.
Idiot, Anna thought, but that was not what she said. Respectable widows of a certain age-one and thirty in two months-do not hurl epithets, however apt, at gentlemen. No, indeed.
"I do hope you are not damaged by your fall," she said instead. "May I assist you to rise?" She smiled through gritted teeth at the sodden man.
He did not return her pleasantry. "What the hell were you doing in the middle of the road, you silly woman?"
The man heaved himself out of the mud puddle to loom over her in that irritating way gentlemen had of tryi...

The Raven Prince

Reviewer: A reader from OBrien, FL US
This is the first book in Hoyt's Prince's series. There is obvious sexual tension that builds through the entire book and though there is an underlining plot, the focus of the story is just how much two people can need each other. It is a beautiful love story.

Reviewer: A reader from The Lone Star State
This book opens up a la Jayne Eyre as the hero, Earl Swartingham, falls off his horse because of the heroine, Anna Wren. He's rude...she's offended. Well...she doesn't know he's the earl and she ends up taking a position as the earl's secretary. And this is when the sparks begin to fly. Anna Wren is a widow who was married for several years to a cheating husband and the Earl lost his family and is considered "ugly" because of the Poc marks he carries. The Earl needs/wants a wife who is able to give him children. For that reason he doesn't give in to his lust for Anna. Anna takes things into her own hands and pretends to be a prostitute in order for the Earl to sleep with her. This book also has blackmailers as secondary antagonists to the main characters' personal hang-ups. This story isn't perfect but I thought it was the most romantic out of this trilogy.

The raven prince is a delightful story with a heroine full of wit and courage to defy society and its conventions. The hero is far from conventional and the story enjoyable to read. I really liked this novel from Elizabeth Hoyt and I recommended to anyone who is likes romance.

An ok read but quite dull in places. I thought the characters were a bit two dimenional and the storyline a bit dubious. However it was quite funny in places and I liked the story of the raven prince at the beginning of each chapter
