Lucy Craddock-Hayes was country bred and lived a quiet life. That life will be shaken when she finds an injured man. She will nurse him back to life and will find that her life will never be the same. Lucy will want to be with Simon who was different from any man she had ever met.
Viscount Simon Iddesleigh had been beaten to death but that would not stop his plan for revenge. He had to make sure the men who had killed his brother paid, their payment was death. Simon though will be distracted when Lucy will help him and have him wondering if death was the answer.
The Serpent Prince is the third book to the Prince Trilogy series by Elizabeth Hoyt. I liked this book a lot more than the previous books. I was drawn into the story pretty much right from the beginning. I will admit its still not my favorite of Elizabeth Hoyt but it was good.
I liked Lucy. She was quiet but there was a fire that was inside her and that was drawn out by Simon. Though she was still very much the voice of reason when it came to Simon. The character of Simon intrigued me. He was out for revenge because of his brothers death. I found Simon like two people, a good man and a bad man, and he is explained that way in the book, so I think Hoyt does a good job at that.
The quest for revenge was one that went throughout the entire book. Hoyt does a good job at writing Simon’s mission of revenge and how he changed as he got closer to his goal.
I am reading the last book to the series next.
