The gimmick to accompany the conclusion of the Princess Diaries is this delightful historical romance written by series heroine Princess Mia Thermopolis (“with help from” Cabot, who is donating all proceeds to Greenpeace). Finn Crais is the resourceful daughter of a miller living in Stephensgate, England, in 1291. When Finn’s older sister, Mellana, gets pregnant by a troubadour and has no money for a dowry, Finn agrees to carry out Mellana’s ridiculous plan to abduct a wealthy man and hold him ransom, settling on Earl Hugh Fitzstephen, fresh back from the crusades and loaded with gold and jewels. Finn doesn’t realize who it is she’s captured, and Fitzstephen, owing to a curiosity about Finn and wanting to see where the kidnapping will lead, plays along. As to be expected, passions become enflamed, and Finn discovers her sister’s plan may not be a simple as she originally thought. Though predictable, the novel is thoroughly enjoyable and funny. Cabot’s fans, and particularly those graduating from the Princess Diaries, will be pleased, especially as they may have read brief excerpts in Forever Princess, the series finale (Reviews, p. 55). (Jan.)

One sweet knight

Meg Cabot offers a frolicking medieval romance, Ransom My Heart, in the guise of her fictional character Princess Mia Thermopolis of Genovia (of Princess Diaries fame). Irrepressible Finnula Crais, young expert huntress with a shadowed past, succumbs to a sister's pleading to find a man. A man, that is, that Finnula can kidnap and ransom in order to restore her older sister's spent dowry. Tough on the outside, but soft on the inside, Finnula agrees, and through a delightful series of events captures a handsome knight on his way home from the Holy Land. Hugo has a secret, but it doesn't stop him from falling in with the adventurous Finnula's plan, or falling in love. When the pair's secrets and shadows are revealed, complications abound, and attempts on Hugo's life threaten Finnula as well as the happy ending they seek. Peopled with entertaining characters, Cabot's latest romps briskly to a satisfying denouement.
