To watch the love bloom between Princess Nia Alaera and Mayor Shamus O'Neill was a welcome change from the romance novels of my past. In my reading experience, most of the time in this genre it's either instant attraction followed by a tumble into bed, or love on one side and some other emotion on the other. It's all driven by feelings, hormones and pheromones.
Not so with My Fair Princess. While there's plenty of attraction between the main characters, Nona has written something deeper here. She explores the process of finding true love on a level I don't usually see in the genre, and the liberal doses of humor throughout keep the story from getting maudlin or melodramatic.
I don't usually read a book twice in two months, but I can say that with My Fair Princess, it was well worth the return visit.
I gave it four stars instead of five only because of a few word choices that jarred me out of the story. Otherwise, an excellent tale of love and romance.

I am not required to write a positive review of any book, regardless of how I obtained it. The opinions I express are my own.

Nia Alaera understands her duty and why she must marry Shamus O'Neill. She goes into it headlong, with eyes opened. Fortunately for her, Shamus (Shay) is the epitome of a Sweetheart. He's gentle, handsome and generous, and is determined to give her every chance to fall in love with him. Do I hear applause, ladies? =-D
The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was that this story is obviously part of a series, so I was lost a few times. But if the rest of the books are populated with characters as engaging as these, I'll definitely be looking for them soon =-)
A fun, sweet read with romantic tension peppered in for spice.
