comGirls will laugh and swoon with Ransom My Heart Princess Mia Thermopolis, heroine of Meg Cabot s THE PRINCESS DIARIES, pens a fun, flirty debut novel that s spiced with the occasional mishap.
Finnula Crais is out to catch a rich man Why has Fair Finn switched from hunting game to hunting men To help out her beloved sister, of course The family beauty, Mellana, has spent her entire dowry and needs Finn to capture and ransom some poor unsuspecting fool so she can marry the man of her dreams As luck would have it, her prey is none other than the new local lord, Hugo Fitzstephen, a seasoned knight and womanizer who has just returned from the Crusades.
Inevitably, things begin to heat up as Finn uses herself as bait to lure Hugo Her hostage is all too happy to fi Normally I m a huge Meg Cabot fan I picked up this book and liked the main character immediately And the knight s character too However, it turned out to belike a Harlequin romance I hate to say it But I wasn t expecting so much sensuality It could have been such a wonderful book, but there was far too much sex in it I d hoped that most authors would learn from Stephenie Meyer that having tension in a book is much better than sex scenes It makes me sad, since I have almost all of Cabot s other YA books.
I d check it out just to support Greenpeace, but I expect it ll be fun Fun, indeed It s an historical romance, and a whodunnit, and the cast of characters is engaging Pure pleasure reading And no guilt to it, either.
Purportedly written by Princess of Genovia Mia Thermopolis , who I understand to be a popular movie character, this book is a typical bodice ripper, airport novel read Orproperly, a braies ripper , since the main female character has a propensity for wearing this form of late medieval menswear, and the main male character spends most of the book fantasizing about removing them spoiler alert he does Though interspersed with the occasional God s teeth and Nay, my lord , the dialogue is typically anachronistic and post feminist, with most of the focus on saucy descriptions of improbably impressive medieval physiques and equally improbably tarty medieval womenswear In the one for this genre unusual twist, the sheriff in the story is depicted as intelligent and kindly, whileusually the evil nemesis is named Laroche, an unsubtle rendering of his despicable nature To be fai Another book in the summer of romance novels this one will set a high bar for the others to attain, however Reading through it brought me back to the basic principle that a good book does not need to be high literature if it it makes you want to stay up for hours to finish reading this one And I certainly did with this book muchso than almost any of the others I ve plowed through recently High spirited heroine who is just beginning to recognize the effect that men have on her A hero who is not a jerk A story line that involvesthan just describing their physical attributes and the tingly feelings that each one gets when looking at the other A few of the factors that combine to make it a great summer read One thing I found curious about this boo is that it was classifed as Young Adul Alright, once again I would like to know why movies have ratings but with books You have to guess Because this book makes you guess the rating WRONG.
Pros It was a cute fun read If you are in the mood for moderatly smutty, self indulgent, completely fluffy romance Which as it happens I sometimes am It s pretty funny.
Cons Who in their right mind connects the Princess Diaries which I m only on book 4 of but I m pretty sure I d let a 12 year old read with a book like this that is sooo much an adult novel It s supposedly written by Princess Miawhich is a cute way to have a pen nameIF IN THE SAME AGE RANGE If I were a Mom and bought this book for my kid I would be seriously pissed off It doesn t look like a bodice ripper, either.
Also, seriously, it s one of those books that pretends to be historical, but makes the girl have all sorts of modern ideals and habits Which is a bit c So I have always been a big Meg Cabot fan, really I have, whether it was reading about Princess Mia s awkward adventures or some of her other fluffy, light hearted romances So I figured when I picked up a novel written by Princess Mia with the help of Meg Cabot I was in for a winnerhowever, this was not the case The plot reminded me a lot of Roberson s Lady of the Forest but not quite as good Maybe I have just been in one too many gender classes for my own good, but lots of bits were openly masochistic and repetative Lastly, I don t mind smut, but at some points this was over done, not to mention used as a means of female control over an otherwise strong female character especially for what the excerpt from the final Diaries book claimed was Mia s senior project for high school ie handing in to a teacher That she thought of showi A book by Mia Thermopolis Meg Cabot I thought when I first saw this So being the Meg Cabot fan, I checked out this book from the library and began reading it that night The first shock came on the very first page with the date England, 1291 Holy cow this was long ago But I read on and on By the time I was finally able to stop reading, it had been well over an hour.
Mia s Meg s writing abilities continue to blow me away It was just amazing No, telling you it was amazing doesn t do it any justice because it truly was a great book I mean seriously good I ve read this book THREE TIMES That s how good this book is Finnula is just like she is described above She a fearless, fun, and very loving heroine She s a heroine like none other that I ve read about She s feisty, annoying, very stubborn and will probably kick any guy or gals butt She s one of those girls who you love i Finnula Crais is in a bit of a quandary The year is 1291 and her older sister Mellana is pregnant by her lover, Jack Mallory, a troubadour who is dead broke Mellan begs Finnula to help her and Finnula comes up with a plan She will kidnap a rich man and use his ransom to pay Mellana s dowry Finnula has a low opinion of men in general She thinks they are useless creatures The reason she feels this way is because of her first unwanted marriage that ended with her old senile husband dying the night they became man and wife Finnula is a bit of a tomboy who likes to wear leather braises pants and go hunting in the woods and capture game for the poor villagers so they can put food on their tables If Finnula doesn t find a man to ransom, her older brother Robert will probably kill Jack Hugo Fitzstephen has finally returned home after ten years away in Jerusale
