Because of a not-too-secret dalliance between his great-grandmother and the then King, Englishman Rudolf Rassendyll bears an striking resemblance to the king of Ruritania. Curious about his heritage, he vacations in Ruritania to see his double's coronation -- and he meets and befriends the soon-to-be-crowned King Rudolf. When the King is kidnapped by the villain, Black Michael, Rassendyll must impersonate the King in the coronation ceremony . . . and in the heart of the Queen. Hope's handling of the romance between Rassendyll and Queen Flavia is both a daring and romantic love story and a subtle examination of the meaning of honor and duty to a gentleman. An enduring action-adventure classic in the manner of Sabatini, Dumas, and Orczy; if you haven't read _The Prisoner of Zenda_, you need to read it now. (Jacketless library hardcover.)

Maybe too low-brow for me, but a fun read nonetheless. Unbelievable plot and characters, but you take it for what it is. Read full review
