Hoyt's final, fantastic novel in the Prince trilogy magically blends fairy tale, reality and romance in a delicious, sensual feast to savor. There's enchantment in Hoyt's stories that makes you believe in the magic of love.

Viscount Simon Iddesleigh was beaten to near death by his enemy and nursed back to health by Lucy Craddock-Hayes, who had the good luck to find him lying naked near her home. Kindhearted Lucy finds it difficult to resist Simon's teasing and sophistication when it comes to wooing women. When Simon discovers she's a talented artist, he commissions her to illustrate a fairy tale and tells her of the Serpent Prince and the Goat Girl.

But as Simon recuperates, his enemy returns, and his plans for revenge bring danger. The purity of Lucy's heart and her love will be Simon's saving grace as good and evil confront each other. (Forever, Sep., 380 pp., $6.99)
