Almost A Princess by Elizabeth Thornton.

Almost A Princess by Elizabeth Thornton ♥I hardly tuck into a romance when I know that there's going to be a heavy amount of suspense/thriller etc. elements (unless it's Shannon Mckenna). I'd usually breeze through the non-romance parts if I'm not in the mood.

But Elizabeth Thornton? I just read everything.

Ever since I read To Love An Earl, I just feel like digging into her other books too, war, spies and all.

I can so take it. ☺

Because ultimately, the romance is seriously satisfying for me. In the mist of all the impossibilities.

Oh Case.

(SPOILERS warning...)

One of my favourite scenes is when Case and Jane and her AWESOME dog, Lance (short for Lancelot) went out in the dark and cold to look for her housekeeper's young grandson.

I do so love how Case threatens answers out of a bad guy:
"I'll ask you again," he said, "and if I don't like the answer, I'm going to break your arm. Where is the boy?"
All for Jane right?

Andandandand later in the story how Case shows his love for Jane:
"I'm saying that if you go back to Campbell, I'll come after you. I mean it, Jane. And if you run away and go into hiding again, I'll find you and chain you to my side."
"When I came here tonight, I didn't know, I didn't understand. I thought you'd deliberately led me on knowing that I could never have you. I was crazy with jealously, and my pride, of course, was cut to shreds."
And so much darn more.

I took so long to blog this because when I browse through the book for tidbits of Case that I love, I tend to continue reading. And reading.

I just love this whole book. Case, Jane, Lance, the mysteries and all. ♥
