Reader Review: The Prize is a wonderful romance novel. It's definitely not your everyday love story though. I have to admit that I really felt for Virginia throughout the whole book. Devlin definitely made her go through A LOT of difficult stuff. Virginia is palpably made out of stern stuff though because she still came out very much in love with Devlin. If you like angst then you're going to love The Prize.
An infamous sea captain of the British Royal Navy, Devlin O'Neill is consumed with the need to destroy the man who brutally murdered his father. Having nearly ruined the Earl of Eastleigh financially, he is waiting to strike the final blow. And his opportunity comes in the form of a spirited young American woman, the earl's niece, who is about to set his cold, calculating world on fire...
Born and raised on a tobacco plantation, orphan Virginia Hughes is determined to rebuild her beloved Sweet Briar. Daringly, she sails to England alone, hoping to convince her uncle to lend her the funds. Instead, she finds herself ruthlessly kidnapped by the notorious Devlin O'Neill. As his hostage, she will soon find her best-laid plans thwarted by a passion that could seal their fates forever...

Chapter OneJuly 5, 1798 The south of Ireland near Askeaton Castle
Gerald O'Neill rushed into the manor house, his once-white shirt crimson, his tan britches and navy coat equally stained. Blood marred his cheek, matted his whiskers. An open gash on his head was bleeding and so were the cuts on his knuckles. His heart beat with alarming force and even now the sounds of battle, the cries of imminent death, rang in his eardrums. "Mary! Mary! Get into the cellar now!" he roared.
Devlin O'Neill could not move, stunned. His father had been gone for more than a month - since the middle of May. He had sent word, though, every few weeks, and while Devlin was only ten years old, he was acutely aware of the war at hand. Farmer and priest, shepherd and squire, peasant and gentry alike had risen up to fight the English devils once and for all, to take back all that was truly theirs - the rich Irish land that had been stolen from them a century ago. There was so much hope - and there was so much fear.
Now his heart seemed to simply stop and he stared at his father, relieved to finally see him again and terribly afraid. He was afraid that Gerald was hurt - and he was afraid of far worse. He started forward with a small cry, but Gerald did not stop moving, going to the bottom of the stairs and bellowing for his wife again. His hand never left the scabbard that sheathed his cutlass, and he carried a musket as well.
Devlin had never seen his eyes so wild. Dear God.
"Is Father hurt?" a tiny voice whispered beside him, a small hand plucking at his torn linen sleeve.
Devlin didn't even look at his dark-haired younger brother. He co...

Great read, love the story line and the love story. I've read the whole De Warrene series and by far this one is my favorite. Delvin truely is the most tortured soul and I rooted for him all the way. Must read if you like Brenda's work!

The Prize is a wonderful romance novel. It's definitely not your everyday love story though. I have to admit that I really felt for Virginia throughout the whole book.
