There are hints as to why not but it was never fully brought to light. I thought that could have brought more drama to the end than there was. The last part that bugged me was that the end seemed so rushed. Everything was going great and I was actually surprised at a few points and then all of a sudden the book rushes towards the happy conclusion. I knew it was coming but it would have been nice to have it drawn out a little. Other than that I thought it was a fun story with a few surprises thrown in. The supporting characters were my favorite part of the book.
Like I mentioned above Poppie and Henry were wonderful and I also really liked what we saw of Christoph's mother and his main servant. I always enjoy these mysteries about the royal heirs who no one is ever really sure if they were murdered or managed to survive in hiding. It reminds me of the stories about Anastasia Romanov possibly having made it out of the massacre of her entire family.
It's such a romantic idea that despite the odds they might have faced they managed to survive whatever catastrophe and one day reveal their true identity.
When Passion Rules
All in all a fun read that while not a favorite from Lindsey it was not as bad as others made it out to be. This book never lives up to its potential.
When Alana's "uncle" tells her she's really a princess of a fictional country at the time of the Napoleonic wars , she returns to her homeland to claim her birthright only to be imprisoned by the captain of the royal guard who believes she is an impostor. The mystery surrounding Alana's true identity is good, but Lindsey relies on coincidence too much.
The characters are never held accountable for their actions and the scene in which the romantic obstacle is overcome is laughable picture characters slapping themselves on the head and saying, "Why didn't I see this before? This changes everything! I think I'll do a complete now! Forget what I said 2 paragraphs ago! Definitely not Lindsey's best effort, not worth the hardcover price, but good enough when you just want a quick mindless read.
I had a hard time putting it down and despite the unbelievable parts, I found it enjoyable. A women who grew up in England would have taught you better. When I am with the king, I exhibit the manners he expects in nobles. When I am with my men, I use manners they expect. When I'm with a women--" "That's far enough.
She was actually going to enjoy being a princess just long enough to put Christoph Becker in his place. Here at Walmart. Your email address will never be sold or distributed to a third party for any reason.

Plotline had potential, but ended up being a confusing, jumbled mess. Dialogue was horrible Romance seemed rushed and forced, and just not believable. I couldn't have cared less whether the two main characters had a HEA.
So much about this book I just didn't like at all. So much stupidity all around that I ended up skimming most of it, then just giving up before I was finished.
