|Title:||The Romantic Prince|
|Publisher:||Grosset and Dunlap|
Sir Anthony of Egmont, finding himself a thoroughly disenchanted man, packs up his Ideals and leaves behind him the ungentlemanly life of the Burgundian court. His sensibilities are immediately put to use by his saving the life of an unjustly accused man; a fateful turn of events that leads him to the home of the beautiful Johanna. Though romance quickly blooms, Anthony’s sense of duty has him soon back at his Duke’s side, albeit a much unhappier man. A now thoroughly disenchanted Johanna also follows her sense of duty, accepting her pre-arranged marriage, and becoming a great deal unhappier as well. Their next fateful meeting forces the pair to face up to the truth of both their true feelings and the consequences of their choices. Fate leaves Anthony to contend with Duke Philip’s war-hungry ways and Johanna to deal with the despicable rogue Rhynsault; two paths that lead back to the same purpose.—Goodreads.com.
