Noble Prince by Devney Perry Review


* * * * * * * * * *


The night Luke Rosen met Scarlett Marks was the only time he’s regretted becoming chief of police. One horrific night of blood and death, and now she’s living under his roof—all because he swore an oath to serve and protect.

Scarlett is stubborn and infuriating. She has no respect for the order in his structured life, and she never does anything she’s told. Worse, she doesn’t seem to care that the information she has on a motorcycle gang means she might end up dead. But her unwavering strength, her courage and tenacity and beauty, makes it impossible for him to abandon her.

If Luke is going to keep her safe, he’ll have to make the hardest decision of his life. He can either honor his values as a cop, knowing Scarlett is unlikely to survive . . . or he can break all the rules and protect the woman who’s invaded his home and his heart.

I am absolutely loving the Tin Gypsy series from Devney Perry, it just keeps getting better with each book. These stories are tied together with an edge-of-your-seat, heart-pounding suspenseful arc, and each one features a romantic relationship fraught with challenges and complications. This series is just so addictive! Having finished Noble Prince, the fourth book in the series, I find myself right back in familiar territory where this series is concerned, and that is anticipating the release of the next book.

Scarlett Marks is the twin sister of Presley, the heroine from Stone Princess. Noble Prince picks right up where Stone Princess left off in a suspenseful storyline that had me tapping my Kindle furiously. Perry really gives readers the chance to get to know her characters, and I particularly appreciated that here. Pairing Scarlett, a woman who had suffered through horrific abuse and trauma for her entire life, with Luke Rosen, the town police chief, gave this romance an opposites-attract vibe that was perfect. Luke is a pretty black and white kind of guy, but as things shake out with Scarlett, it seems that he’s going to have to embrace the gray a little bit. I loved how gentle and patient Luke was with this woman, she absolutely needed that from him and he gave it to her in all of the best ways. Scarlett and Luke’s romance was a bit of a slow burn—emphasis on the burn—and, again, it was very fitting for this couple.

Scarlett and Luke’s love story was an enthralling swirl of emotion, sizzling chemistry and pulse-pounding predicaments. At times thrilling and hair-raising, at times poignant and emotional, their journey to happily ever after was a twisting, turning, tumultuous trip. This was the kind of story where I couldn’t flip the pages fast enough, I didn’t want to put my Kindle down, and it was in my hand as I burned dinner. A steamy, emotional and tender romance collide with a skin-prickling suspense plot in a story that completely owned my all of my attention. Five smooches from me for Noble Prince by Devney Perry!
