About Annette Gisby

Annette Gisby grew up in a small town in Northern Ireland moving to London when she was seventeen. Being a very small town there were no bookshops and a small library. When she’d devoured every book she could get her hands on in the library, she started writing her own stories so she would always have something to read later.

When not writing she enjoys reading, cinema, theatre, walks along deserted beaches or wandering around ruined castles (great places for inspiration!)

She still lives in London with her husband, a collection of porcelain dolls and stuffed penguins and enough books to fill a small library. It’s diminishing gradually since the discovery of ebooks but still has a way to go.

A good read, well developed characters despite its length.

Review by: Sadie S. Forsythe on March 04, 2013 :
The is a fairly short read about an aloof prince seeking a reversal of position. It encompasses a little bit of light S&M/bondage, but is really pretty vanilla. There is a lot of emphasis on the safe word and the Dom frequently gives the Sub a chance to call it quits. While this was nice, kept the story from feeling dark despite the subject matter, I thought it also distracted from the story. It passed a pleasant half hour or so though.

As an avid reader, I enjoy sinking my teeth into a long novel that will take me days to read, so I was a bit wary when I saw "The Prince's Guard" under short stories. In the past, I have encountered short pieces that felt like they were lacking, as if the author had given up on the development of the characters and story. However, Annette Gisby has pulled me flawlessly into the world of the Prince and his Guard.

Her characters are so intense and real that the second you finish the story, you're in utter shock and denial that the characters are not actually standing in front of you, her writing style is absolutely lovely for she has a way of making words flow along the pages, and she knows how to entice the readers from the very beginning (of course having a half naked man on the cover does help).

My fingers are itching to give a play-by-play of why I loved this story, but I don't want to give anything away! I can, however, definitely say that by the end, my heart was yearning for Dashan and Ryland's happiness, but at the same time I was quite satisfied with the outcome (no pun intended).
