This was a refreshing tale of true love, and all the problems that go with it. I thought the love scenes between Aedan & Christina, while not exactly the norm for most romances, were well done, romantic and certainly occurred because these two were falling in love. Nothing insulting about it, in my opinion.

Such intense dialogue, and obvious true love between Aedan and Christina puts this book at the top of the list as an all-time favorite of mine. Yes, it dragged in places and that wasn't good, but overall this book was well worth reading; it leaves you with a smile on your face. There wasn't an uncool bone in Aedan's body! He was the best; he kind of reminded me of some of Madeline Hunter's heros, another great author.

This was an excellent, excellent story, my first book by this author. Aedan was definitely all-man; sexy, handsome, smart, gentle, and yes, ruthless, when needed. Christina was lovely, just so perfect for Aedan. Edgar was a perfectly done villian. He was a prig, yet slightly evil at the same time.
This book had the kind of dialogue I love - very intense, deep, and emotional. The author just entrances the reader when Aedan & Christina are together, especially intimately. And there were witty parts, most notably when Aedan & Christina were sitting on his horse in the pouring rain and Edgar arrived. But...there were a few boring spots I found tedious. However, after a while, they faded altogether and the book became a real page turner.

I absolutely love Susan King's writing style, and I have loved each of her books so far--they are always exquisitely crafted, with a warmth at the heart of each story that is irresistible and unforgettable. In a genre of quick reads that just don't stick with the reader for very long, here is a writer who delivers quality and satisfaction for readers who love romance, yet often find themselves hungry for substance in a story.
WAKING THE PRINCESS is another beautifully rendered story by a truly gifted storyteller. THis is a book to savor for its wonderful characters, its unusual and compelling story--pay attention, and you will be immensely rewarded. If you are used to fast, lite reads, you may not "get it" but that may be your loss. This is a sensitively crafted story written with a lyrical tone. Aedan and Christina are compelling, sympathetic, very real characters, deeply challenged by their pasts and their emotions, and forced to deal with their own private fears in order to grab at the chance for true love at last. The whole story, the setting, the characters, the plot, are convincingly created and lavishly constructed. The reader is drawn into the story completely--the whole world went away while I read, and that is something that is difficult to achieve in any genre.
I am a high school English teacher, not that it makes me an expert, but it definitely gives me an appreciation for good, even great, writing, and for solid story structure. I love historical romance, but find myself often disappointed by current trends. Susan King is always the exception for me--and she is an exceptional writer, a very talented novelist. The beautiful, complex artistry in WAKING THE PRINCESS transcends much of the genre. It reads like a much bigger book, like a hardback novel.

I agree with the reviewer from Hightstown, NJ. The book just didn't have a plot that would keep the 2 main characters apart. Even the book jacket didn't really tell you what the story was about. I kept waiting for the story to start and I was well into the middle of the book by then.
Also, I'm so unimpressed with these trilogies that authors keep putting out. Aedan didn't impress me in Taming the Heiress and Dougal and Meg were just forced onto the pages of Waking the Princess. What's wrong with starting over with all new characters nowadays??? Everyone seems to be doing it and it's nothing but a distraction to me.
Sorry to say that Ms. King let me down a little this time, although her writing is still far superior than so many others out there.
