SUMMARY
Princess Isolde, is prone to harmless indiscretions and accidental adventures. During one such outing, she finds herself running from a wild boar. As she attempts to escape the boar, she stumbles into a clearing landing at the feet of an unmovable obstacle, a naked and menacing warrior brandishing a battle ax.

Isolde is extremely attracted to the strange warrior. She does not recognize the man as the outlaw hunted by her father, the king, for attempting to assasinate him several years earlier. Later, when he reveals his identity, she finds it difficult to hold against him.

Especially, after he sees her safely returned to the castle despite his vow to avenge his father's execution at the order of the king.

Sexy, steampunk mayhem fills the pages of ISOLDE'S WISH by Em Petrova. The story's funky mix of medieval simplicity, Victorian era science and a hint of alchemy make this a fun read. When combined with a strong willed heroine, a hunky outlaw and nearly non-stop action, the book can be a pleasant afternoon read or read in bits--serial style.

The story's heroine, Princess Isolde, is prone to harmless indiscretions and accidental adventures. During one such outing, she finds herself running from a wild boar and stumbles to land at the feet of an unmovable obstacle in the form of a naked and menacing warrior brandishing a battle ax.

Isolde is extremely attracted to the strange warrior. She does not recognize the man as the outlaw hunted by her father, the king, for attempting to assassinate him several years earlier. Later, when he reveals his identity, she finds it difficult to hold that against him. Especially after he sees her safely returned to the castle despite his vow to avenge his father's execution at the order of the king.

Sadler and Isolde meet secretly on several occasions while eluding the Earl using mechanical horses and flying machines. They soon find themselves following in their parents' footsteps. The two, his father and her mother, were executed for carrying on an affair. Even when confronted with their shared history, Sadler and Isolde cannot stay apart; the attraction that first draws them together and their growing bond will not allow it.

The rest of the story follows Isolde and the warrior, Sadler, as they lead the king's men and the wicked Earl of Millvale, on a wild chase. The Earl fails to capture Sadler on several occasions when he comes to see Isolde -- even with the threat to his life. The Earl's suit for the princess' hand in marriage proves an uncertain investment given her interest in Sadler and distaste for the Earl.

Will Isolde betray her father by aligning herself with the son of her mother's lover? Will Sadler find himself at the guillotine for his attempt on the king's life and daring to love so far above his station? Read ISOLDE'S WISH. You will enjoy finding out.
