"Amusing Fantasy Romance"
When Nana died, her attorney informed her ward Kate
Carmichael and her only living relative Adam St. John that
no will has been found. Without a will, by law, Nana's
house loved by Kate goes to the family, Adam, who plans to
toss the moocher out and sell the home. A stunned Kate
returns home to talk to the portrait that she has used as a
confident for the last twelve years or since her dad
allegedly died. Taking the picture off the wall, Kate
mutters that everyone she loves leaves her. She then reads
an inscription on the back that she never noticed before.
Suddenly Robin Goodfellow leaves the portrait and appears
next to Kate. He persuades her that he indeed was trapped
inside the portrait for two centuries by the fairy queen
Titania. However, he quickly learns that he is not
completely free, as he remains bound to his rescuer Kate.
Robin and Kate fall in love, but being an immortal he
cannot deal with watching a beloved mortal eventually die,
while she too cannot cope with everyone she loves dying.
PRINCE OF CHARMING is an amusing fantasy romance that will
enchant sub genre fans. The story line is enjoyable
especially the humorous scenes involving Robin's charm
power and his learning about his "disability." Simply Robin
charms the reader and steals the show from Kate and the
support cast. Karen Fox writes a novel that is fun to read.
