Book Description

A flirtatious princess. And the man who can't be caught.

Coralina Corissa, known as “Coco” to her eight sisters, is the prettiest princess of a hundred kingdoms. And she knows it. Her beauty has always given her anything she wanted... and any MAN she wanted.

Runa Realm is facing a new threat. Strange bandits, disguised as nobles, are attacking beautiful women to steal their hair. Coralina isn’t concerned. Until Prince Luxley, her favorite (but not only) lover, gets clobbered by a peasant called Gord, who mistakenly assumed the prince was a bandit.

Outraged, Coralina plans to punish the peasant by deliberately breaking his heart. But Gord is nearly blind. For the first time ever, Coralina must rely on more than her looks to ensnare a man. But the harder she flirts, the more Gord seems to hate her. And the more her own heart (and hair) becomes endangered.

The Nine Princesses Novellas is a series that chronicles the adventures of an unconventional family of princesses, the struggles they face in a kingdom often hostile to their humble origins, and the day-to-day dramas of nine young women whose personalities often clash like swords. Fans of Gail Carson Levine and Shannon Hale would enjoy this young-adult series.

˃˃˃ Read an Excerpt:

Luxley filled two goblets with cider. The dark window above the table mirrored the sparkling ballroom and swirling dancers. Coralina patted her curls knowing Luxley would admire them if she did.

“Your hair is divine, Princess Coralina!” said Luxley. “Black as crows yet lustrous as moonlight on a frozen sea.”

Coralina smiled and accepted her goblet. Luxley was scrumptious tonight. Time for a little stroll out of doors. She’d take him to Love Lake and, after feigning reluctance, let him kiss her.

Coralina turned away with a sorrowful sigh.

“Whatever is wrong, my beauty?” said Luxley, right on cue. Coralina looked down at her goblet, tracing the rim with her finger. “Oh... it’s nothing.”

“Dear lady, you must tell me.” Luxley set down his drink to clasp her hand in both of his. Coralina blinked away tears she didn’t have. “I - I was thinking... how lovely it would be to walk in the moonlight.”

“Why don’t we!” Luxley cried joyously.

Coralina shook her head. “It’s too perilous. There are rumors of dangerous bandits in the kingdom. Maelyn forbade going out after dark.”

“But my precious princess, I will come with you!” said Luxley. “And all the world’s villains shall not touch you while I am near.”

Coralina lifted large eyes to his face. “Well... if you promise to keep VERY close to me.”

5.0 out of 5 stars I read both book one and two tonight January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I finished the first and immediately purchased fhe second. I could not put either of them down. The main chracters in both books, but especially this one, were very well developed and both princesses grew subtly but noticeably throughout their story. Anita Valle created an amazing portrayal of Coco. I wish I had not found this series until it was concluded. It will be very difficult to wait for the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars you want to hate her... November 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
...and sometimes you do! But Princess Coralina does shallow with the best of them (blissfully unaware that she IS), until you get toward the end and realize that you've watched a true character growth. So the twist ending is all the more wrenching, perhaps for its realism.

This story doesn't have the implied Happily Ever After that Maelyn's alluded to. But it does continue the idea that the stories of all 9 princesses is in fact one story.

I did like Coralina's story and I encourage that it be read, so that all Happily Ever Afters (in other stories/tales/what-have-you) taste that much sweeter. I can't wait to see what peripherally happens to Coralina, during her sisters' stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review for Coralina May 9, 2013
By Maria
Format:Paperback
Coralina is the second volume of The Nine Princesses Novellas. Nine girls were adopted by a king and queen--each from a different kingdom. [And, each one gets their own novella.] When the king and queen died, the princesses each took on a role to help run the castle and kingdom. This book is about Coralina the "festivities princess." Coralina is very beautiful and knows it. She doesn't hesitate to use her looks and charms to win people over, especially men who fall easily for her. However, she meets her match when she tries to pay back Gord for embarrassing her. However, Gord is going blind and cannot see Coralina like everyone else can. This does not stop her from trying and including Gord in her newest play. However, trouble is also afoot when bandits are abducting women to cut off their hair. Does Coralina fall into the bandits hands? Does she get Gord back? Does she learn a lesson in vanity? Does she learn a lesson in love? Well, that's where you have to read the story.

Growing up, I loved princess stories and of course wearing pretty dresses. I was a girlie girl, so even though I'm slightly older than the target audience (12+) - I guess the '+' includes me - I still like to read fairytales and princess books. Although the character of Coralina is somewhat predictable, I was surprised at what happened. As with any fairytale, there is a moral of the story. If I was rating the book as a younger version of myself, I would have probably given it 5 stars.

I wouldn't mind reading more of the princess novellas. This was a pleasant read, and I think a nice book for young girls. If you love princess stories and new fairytales, you might want to give this book a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Really Enjoyed This One March 30, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a book where I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I had read the first book, Maelyn, and I thought it was alright. This book, however, is one of my favorites of 2013!

Coco is a character who I know I shouldn't like, but I did anyway. She is spoiled, a flirt, and she takes pleasure in breaking men's hearts. But you know what? I didn't care. Under all that, you could see through how she interacted with Pipsy that she was actually a decent human being. I identify more with Maelyn, but I enjoyed reading about Coralina more.

Gord....hmmm. I had mixed feelings about him. He was another interesting character, but I don't think I exactly liked him as much as I should have. The ending was definitely not a cliche romance ending, which may be the reason for my unfair feelings toward him. I liked his daughter, Pipsy, more than him.

At first, I thought the bandits would be sort of babyish. I mean, they were stealing hair! But, considering that, I thought that they were actually written pretty well. When I found out who the bandits were, it made even more sense and really added to the story.

The story kind of had an ending, it kind of didn't. A few things were resolved, and others seemed to be leading up to the next book, Heidel. And now that I've read Coralina, I am definitely reading Heidel!

I would definitely recommend you read this story. I don't think you need to read Maelyn to read this book, but I have a feeling Maelyn will be important later on in the series, so perhaps you should. It is a short, fun, read that is unexpectedly great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Wait for Book 3 February 14, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Coralina is the second sister in the Nine Princess Novella series and just like Maelyn, Coralina was a fun quick read. I would have to say I relate more to Maelyn, but Coralina was a more fun sister. The kingdom has been overtaken by bandits that are after women's hair. Coralina is rescued by carpenter, Gord and decides to punish him by making him fall in love with her and then breaking his heart.

Coralina is smart and beautiful. She can have any men she wants just by batting her eyelashes, but Gord is different and proves to be a challenge for Princess Coralina. Along the way Coralina builds a relationship with Gord's daugther, Pipsy, who has no mother. I would have to say Coralina could be a bit difficult of a character at times, but I liked her. I think she made this novel exciting. I can't wait to see what happens in the third novella, Heidel.
