Waiting on Wednesday - Ransom My Heart

Ransom My Heart by Mia Thermopolis and Meg Cabot was published in January in the US but a UK edition will soon be available (early December).

From Meg Cabot's website:

Her Royal Highness Mia Thermopolis, Crown Princess of Genovia–whose published “Diaries” have been a #1 bestselling sensation–now graces the world with her first novel of danger, desire, and timeless romance…with an introduction from Meg Cabot!

He’s a tall, handsome knight with a secret.

She’s an adventurous beauty with more than a few secrets of her own.

Finnula Crais needs money for her sister’s dowry, and fast. Handsome Hugo Fitzstephen, Earl of Stephensgate, returning home to England from the Crusades, has money–saddlebags of gold and jewels–and lots of it. What could be simpler than to kidnap him and hold him for ransom? Especially when he’s more than willing to allow himself to be caught by such a winsome captor.

Well, for starters, Finnula could make the terrible mistake of falling in love with her hostage, only to realize he’s been lying about his identity all along ….

But then, so has she.

Now their lives—and the lives of everyone they know and love—could be in mortal danger.

Is Finnula in hell? Or is she in heaven?

and..."Princess Mia and Meg Cabot have announced that all of the author's worldwide proceeds for Ransom My Heart will be donated to Greenpeace. It is printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper and the mill is FSC certified..."


  1. I loved the extracts of this book that I read in Princess Diaries 10 ("Ten out of Ten"). I'm not sure if I'll enjoy it away from the context of Mia's own relationships, but I'm looking forward to trying!

  2. Oh, by the way, the UK cover is different. You can see it here if you're interested:

    I thought this book was out this past January in the US? It came out at the same time as PD10. I wonder why we've had to wait nearly a year for it? Sigh. :)

  3. Many thanks! I got my years muddled up. I've now amended the wording and put the UK cover up. There seems a touch of the 'vampire neck' cover about the UK version :).

  4. this book is brilliant i mean one of my favorite all time books. considering i wasn't a big fan of the princess diaries series i really didn't expect to love it like i do.its a definite must read!!!!!!!!!!

  5. awesome book lots of twist and turns though the ending was quite hasty i would have loved to read about finn and hugo's baby
