Anne Gracie: The stolen princess jne.

Anne Gracien historiallisessa viihderomaanisarjassa Devil Riders on ilmestynyt viisi romaania. Kaikki romaanit toistavat saman kaltaista juonikuviota, jossa on yhdistetty ulkomaan eksotiikkaa päähenkilöiden keskinäiseen kuherteluun.

The stolen princess (Berkley Sensation, 2008; ISBN 978--0-425-21898-3)

The estranged younger son of an earl, Gabriel Renfrew earned glory and honor on the battlefield, but now, without purpose, he finds himself deliberately courting danger at every turn. Then one night he races his horse along a dangerous moonlit cliff—and stumbles upon a beautiful woman obviously in need of saving.

A princess on the run, Callie has disguised herself and her son, the crown prince, as commoners, hoping to protect him from those intent on stealing the throne. She has no choice but to trust the handsome ex-officer who's come to her rescue, even when he insists that only a marriage of convenience will provide her the ultimate protection. But while her new husband may keep Callie and her son safe from assassins, what will he do to her heart?

His captive lady (Berkley Sensation, 2008; ISBN 978-0-425-22324-6)

Highborn ladies have only one use for nobleman Harry Morant--in the bedchamber. Now, after eight years at war, Harry breeds racehorses and vows never to fall in love. His plans are soon threatened by an unexpected passion for an earl's daughter.

To catch a bride (Berkley Sensation, 2009; ISBN 978-0-425-23022-0)

It was the perfect excuse to delay a dreaded marriage of convenience—head off on an exotic journey to track down a young lady missing in Egypt for six years. Rafe Ramsey, son of the Earl of Axebridge, is utterly besotted when he finally locates the beautiful and spirited Ayisha, who has taken a new name. But a mysterious past has made it impossible for her to return to England, and she is on the run from something far more serious than an unwanted betrothal.

The accidental wedding (Berkley Sensation, 2010; ISBN 978-0-425-23382-5)

When Nash Renfrew wakes in the bed of lovely Maddy Woodford, he thinks he's dreaming. Then he learns of his accident and the loss of his memory. But when it returns, Nash has no desire to leave Maddy's side and continues pretending he has amnesia. With each passing day, Nash's attraction to Maddy grows. But he's a diplomat and she's just a country girl. How can he even entertain thoughts of seducing her?

Bride by mistake (Berkley Sensation, 2012; ISBN 978-0-425-24579-8)

Eight years ago, Lieutentant Luke Ripton made a hasty wartime marriage-in-name-only to protect a young girl from a forced union and left her protected in a remote mountain convent. Now, Luke is Lord Ripton, but he has been unable to obtain an annullment. Which leaves him no choice but to claim a wife he doesn't want.

For nearly a decade, Isabella has waited like a princess locked in a tower, dreaming of her handsome, dark-haired prince. Her dreams are shattered when Luke reveals himself not as a prince, but an autocratic soldier, expecting her unquestioning obedience, which is something Isabella's fiercely independent nature will not tolerate.

And while Luke and Isabella's fiery personalities clash at every turn, they remain bound to their vows, never expecting that the passionate fury they share could become passion of a different kind.
