This tale is set in the fictional castle Montebello somewhere in Europe around 1940, when war breaks out.
The castle is seized by the Imperial Army, headed by Prince Mefist who decides to use Montebello because
of its strategic location. Prince Mefist soon demands the younger nuns for the officers' bordello and forces
Therese (Mother Superior Therese) to choose between giving in to his demands or he will seize women from
the local village. Therese resigns to the inevitable and assumes her new position of Madam, thus ensuring her
continued support of the nuns. Though soon enough Therese finds she is falling under the spell of the Prince.
You will need to keep an open mind when reading this story about a group of nuns who become
prostitutes. This book is one of the more controversial erotic novels I’ve read recently. The Prince and the
Nun offers another outlook on the oldest profession, with a twist! Although at times Prince Mefist and his
sister, Wanda, are blasé about what is forced on these nuns, I still found this story kept me interested to
discover the fate of these women. It was well written and it displayed emotional depth and character
development, as well as the differing viewpoints of the various characters.
The author does not intentionally set out to titillate her readers. The Prince and the Nun is interesting and
there are some very HOT moments in the book with some very tasteful scenes. The premise offered here is
that this may be a situation borne out of the necessity of war; these women simply have no other choice.
This book also centers on the story of Therese's sexual awakening through Mefist and his sister Wanda.
With their help Therese is awakened to a life of deep sensuality, but also craving intimacy from the man she
loves, Mefist. Prince Mefist is a charismatic, handsome and debonair character who easily manipulates but
also treats people under his charge with care and kindness. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book.

Naughty, but Nice
Fresh off of reading The Prince and the Nun, I find myself extremely satisfied, no pun intended!
Jacqueline George writes vividly, giving you every pertinent detail imaginable, and giving you the ability to
visualize what you are reading.
Although this novel can be classified as very erotic, it is erotic in all of the good meanings of the word. It
is not disturbing in any way, and in fact, Jacqueline relates to what we know we all feel, but are sometimes too
uncomfortable to speak of. But that is how she really pulls you in to this story, because her characters are
sincere and convincing as being uncertain and a bit frightened, as well.
The setting for the story was perfect, a mysterious old castle, with many secrets holed up within. A cold
winter atmosphere that tends to bring people closer together. This tale was actually very historical and
interesting, and as such, I was glued to it for two days during any of my down time.
A great deal of emotion actually sparks the passion within this work, and I hope that is never overlooked. I
could not pull myself away from this piece due to the value that Jacqueline places on all of her characters.
Every woman can relate to a character in this novel, whether it be Therese or Portia, and every man will love
trying to relate to the women in this novel. Therese, the Mother Superior, turned regular woman, craving
intimacy from the man she loves, is fantastic. She keeps the novel going because she is so painfully human.
If she were a real woman, I would even find myself kneeling at her feet. Mefist is charming and debonair, the
kind of man that inspires many a girl’s imaginations, I'm sure. You truly begin to care for these characters the
more you get to know them, and that in itself is worthy of a good read, not to mention the bonuses you get
when reading Jacqueline's work- she always adds a little something extra to keep the audience happy.
This was a wonderful read, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a naughty side, even if that may
mean one that is secretly tucked away.

A Good, Sexy Romance
The Prince and the Nun is a sexy romance revolving around Therese and her amour Prince Mefist.
Therese starts the story as Mother Superior of a convent in the castle. A war is on and, when the castle is
needed by the army, she pledges to help any way she can - not realizing this would lead to her being the
Madam for the Officer's Club and oversee the conversion of her youngest prettiest nuns from sisters of mercy
Through all the ups and downs every good novel has Therese keeps her wits about her using her influence
where she can to keep the ravages of war to a minimum. One of the interesting things to watch is how she
uses her administrative skills and Christian compassion that she learned in the nunnery to manage a bordello
and the army officers that patronize it. She is so resourceful that we are sure whatever her future holds
Therese will be up to it.
The central story is Therese's sexual awakening. In the nunnery she gained maturity still a virgin. With the
help of Prince Mefist and his sister, Wanda, Therese is awakened to a life of deep sensuality. Paralleling this
theme is the change in the girls from shy, quiet nuns to bawdy, self confident young women who aren't afraid
to **** when needed and who have learned to enjoy all kinds of sex from the Army Officers.
The novel is an enjoyable light read. The descriptive writing is excellent. Jacqueline really catches the
society of the village and the mountains surrounding it. The sexy parts are really hot. A party at the Officer's
Club where Therese organizes a special show always brings me a smile when I think about it. I don't want to
give the end of the story away but this party ends with cancan dancers and, a JoJo Jinx trademark, no panties!
If you are looking for a light sexy romance to pass an idle evening The Prince and the Nun fits the ticket.
Jacqueline George delivers an entertaining story centered on a most interesting heroine who often takes
unusual choices in difficult situations.

Erotic, but not pornographic, January 5, 2005
A story of forbidden pleasure, intrigue, and lust. The author clearly has talent. Mother Theresa must face
the fact that the army has taken over the convent. There is no way to make them leave. Forced to either give
up her young virgin sisters to the army or have them rape the wives and daughters of the village (whose
families might not be so forgiving) she chooses to sacrifice her sisters. The sisters are brought to a sexual
awakening, and the fulfillment and joy that sex can bring by the officers of the prince. Theresa faces demons
of her own; she alone is responsible for what has happened to her sisters. She must face her growing feelings
of sexuality, and her attraction to the prince.
The prince’s sister seduces her, but the prince himself remains aloof. Her confusion over her sexual
awakening and her growing feelings for him, are multiplied by his desire to have her come to him of her own
free will. He does not want Theresa for just a playmate he has that in his own sister. He wants Theresa for his
own. She must make the choice for he will not have her blame him in the end. An excellent story, really worth

The Renaissance Literary Editor's Comment
Jane Gallion, literary editor and author of Biker and Going Down calls The Prince and the
Nun "the finest thing I have read, combining history, characterization & erotica--believable
erotica--in decades. The characters are fine, the plot is excellent, the good guys believable
without being insipid, the bad guys abominable without being demonic. The story line gives
insight into aspects of the period I had never known before and hardly suspected. Higher praise
I don't think I could find for a literary work."
A couple of months ago, Jacqueline George sent me an email asking if I would read and review
an erotic book she had written. I agreed to do so, but made sure to tell her that it would have to
wait until things settled down after the winter holidays and the New Year. So, I finally read it --
and really liked it!
The book is about Therese von Falberg, Mother Superior of the Sisters of Montebello, of the
Order of St. Mary Magdalene. Set "somewhere in central Europe" in the 1940s, a crisis arises
when the Imperial Army comes to the castle of Montebello and wants "girls" for their Officers
Club. Therese is given a choice - either the Army conscripts women from the village, or she &
some of the other nuns can "volunteer" to be the officers' concubines. Wow, talk about breaking
some taboos, eh?
I found the story to be engaging, the characters well-rounded and the dialogue to be more or
less believeable. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was honest humor in these pages as
well as sex scenes that are just the right touch of spice that I enjoy. It was fascinating to view
these experiences from the eyes of Therese and the other nuns.
I especially enjoyed the character of Captain Prince Franz Mefist, the Adjutant of the Army
brigade that occupies the castle. It is he who gives Therese the ultimatum and he who supervises
the nuns' training as the officers' "girls". He is aristocratic with an air of privilege that brooks no
compromise, yet is kind and sympathetic to their plight, even as he gives them no room to
As the nuns enter their new profession, they learn several things - there are many wonderful
scenes involving their "enlightenment", but I won't spoil the fun by divulging everything here.
Suffice to say that I recommend that you go read the book. Jacqueline has done a bang-up job
with it & I hope you all enjoy it.
