Review - "The Third Son" by Elise Marion

The Third Son
(Kings of Cardenas #1)
Publishing Date: 9/23/11
Genre: Historical Romance
Source: Provided by Author

Prince Damien, the spoiled youngest son of the king of Cardenas, finds that his world will never quite be the same again when a fiery Gypsy girl, Esmeralda, comes dancing into his privileged life. Rake. Rogue. Scoundrel. Each of these words has been used to describe Damien Largess, youngest prince of Cardenas, most frequently by his ridiculously somber eldest brother. Damien is perfectly content to spend his days drinking at the card tables, and his nights in the bed of his scheming mistress, especially since doing these things seems to vex his high-handed brother to no end. But when he steps into a glittering ballroom on the night of his twenty-fifth birthday, the roguish young prince’s life will be forever changed. Beautiful. Graceful. Sensual. When Esmeralda steps into the center of the King’s ballroom to perform for his youngest son’s birthday, every eye in the room is glued to the tall, lithe Gypsy dancer. One pair of eyes seems to burn straight through her, and though she has worked endlessly to shield her heart, she finds her defenses slowly slipping away in the presence of the handsome prince. She cannot resist his devastating charm, nor is she immune to the earth shattering desire in his kiss. As she falls rapidly under his spell, Esmeralda dares to hope for a future she would never have thought possible. With a deadly plot against the royal family surrounding him in danger and intrigue, Damien will face a decision he never thought he would have to make. Would he step up to claim a responsibility that should never have fallen to the third son? Or will he abandon it to risk all for love?

My Review:
(Originally Reviewed on Mrs. Papillion aka "The Book Worm")
I had the privilege of reading "The Third Son" by Elise Marion when she contacted me via email.
It was a different book that I wasn't used to reading. It took me away from Paranormal for awhile and I have to say...I really ENJOYED this book. I would've finished this book in a couple of days, but other obligations stepped of them being, me not getting enough sleep at night due to a rocking and rolling baby inside of me. Naps and going to bed early took me away from reading for awhile. =(
This book had me in tears at the end. It's even worst being 35 weeks pregnant and reading this book. I don't suggest someone being pregnant reading this book. Wait until after the baby and then you can read it because you will be bawling at certain points in the book like I did.
I fell in love with the characters Damien and Esmeralda. They went through a lot in this book, but in the end they conquered it all. Elise Marion definitely wrote the love of both of these characters perfectly and how nothing could stop the love between Damien and Esmeralda.
Damien not only had to deal with love trials...but he had to deal with other family issues too. His family is being stalked by someone who wants to kill them all. For what reasons, he has no idea. When he does eventually find out who it is, it's already too late for some of his family members. Poor Damien who always was the one who got himself into trouble and loved being with women....had to step up in this book. He had help though...from Esmeralda who he never thought could capture his heart. A Gypsy girl who happened to dance at a function in his castle one day and he had to know her.
I definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves Romance. I also recommend it to anyone who wants a book that will capture your heart.
I look forward to the next book in the series. The Third Son's Epilogue at the end...let's you know who is next in the series to find love. =)
Thank you, Elise, for giving me the chance to read and review your first book in the series your writing. You definitely have a fan who will keep up with your work.
