I liked – but didn't love –
reading Prize of My Heart
by Lisa Norato. I thought the beginning was exceptionally good and
liked that the story delivered both adventure and romance. Throughout
the story, there was a strong emphasis placed on speaking the truth
and knowing a person's background. Unfortunately, I felt that a
certain twist later in the story undermined this theme as a prominent
character was left not knowing the truth. I can't say more without
spoiling things, but it did not sit well with the rest of the story
or with me as a reader. Aside from that, Prize of
My Heart is an
enjoyable read. I recommend it to fans of historical romance who are
looking for a little adventure in the story, but I do encourage
renting it from the library before buying.
