The Wild Princess: A Novel of Queen Victoria's Defiant Daughter by Mary Hart Perry Tour & Giveaway

Four of the five daughters of England's Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were regal, genteel, and everything a princess should be. But one was rebellious, scandalous, and untamed.
This is her story. .

Watching and reading about the Royals is like indulging in chocolate.  It's decadent.  Most little girls dream of being a princess and growing up to meet, fall in love and marry their prince.  For Princess Louise, Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, she got one out of the three.

A independent, headstrong young woman, Princess Louise was the wild child of the bunch and her mother was determined to curb her ways.  She married her off to a British subject, the Marquee of Lorne.  Did Louise love him? No, nor did they have children, but The Wild Princess explores Princess Louise's life and how one American, Stephen Byrne, recruited for the Queen's Secret Service, keeps Louise's secrets and those of the crown.

With vivid details of royal life and all it entails, Perry has obviously done her research.  It reads like you could be watching it through the window. Her characters are well developed and the pages just fly by as this reviewer found herself immersed in the decadent and secret world of Princess Louise, later known as the Duchess of Argyll.  Fans of Phillippa Gregory will devour this novel and the forbidden love and secrets embedded in it's tome.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
