5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific beginning to a new continuity Jan. 23 2002
By C. Penn
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Silhouette Desires' first year long continuity, TALL, DARK & ROYAL introduces a prominent Chicago family with links to European blood lines. With the death of Princess Emma's father and brother, her eldest son is next in line for the throne. Currently the vice-president of Connelly Corporation, Daniel's life will be transformed with his ascent to the throne.
While he intends to take a hands-on approach to ruling, others would prefer to convince Daniel to relinquish his power and function as a figurehead. Indeed, his background as football player has led his adversaries to grossly underestimate Daniel's abilities. Daniel considers his ascent to the crown a matter of honor and duty, accepting the extraordinary changes in life with grace, including the need to learn the traditional etiquette of his people.
"Royal etiquette and palace liaison" Erin Lawrence arrives to instruct the future king. Her intensions to follow proper protocol often fail with Daniel's easygoing attitudes and insistence upon speaking honestly. Despite her prim polish, however, Erin is perceived as an innocent and forbidden by Daniel. Unfortunately, Erin is also a woman with torn loyalties. She comes to believe in Daniel's sincere concern for her people even as father insists that Erin persuade Daniel to not assume the crown.
Dynamic characters and endearing scenes make Leanne Banks TALL, DARK & ROYAL a marvelous read. Erin's prissy prim and proper behavior contrasts sharply with American casual and forthright manners. The result is often amusing, at times unexpected, and always delightful. The underlying plot of divided loyalties give TALL, DARK & ROYAL added punch as cultures and family loyalties clash. A terrific beginning to what promises to be an entertaining continuity, TALL, DARK & ROYAL comes very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Connelly Dynasty starts with a bang.. May 10 2004
By Meg
Format:Mass Market Paperback
For a short book, Leanne Banks made sure you got your bang for the buck. This book was well written, and from what I've read the best in the series. It felt like a fairy tale in some aspects, and probably would translate well onto the big screen. The story was a little bit fantasy, but not so much that it felt impropable. There's also a bit of mystery that begins in this book and carries out through the others. Being a fan of the romance genre, I enjoyed this book throughly, and now that I've read the other books in the Connelly Dynasty, I wish they had been held to the same standard as this.
