Bronwyn (who’s name I still can’t pronounce correctly in my head) is the eldest daughter of a suitable, albeit no very wealthy family, nobleman who does everything she can to avoid social gatherings and instead wishes to immerse herself in her books. After her disastrous introduction into the world of fine balls and gowns, Bronwyn is convinced she will never fit in with the socialites because of her love for knowledge and her lack of knowledge of fashion and dancing. She has deigned herself to simply living at home helping her father and her family while forever reading her books or so she thought…
Prince Alexsey has always enjoyed his carefree, flirting lifestyle but when his grandmother, the Grand Duchess, decides it is time for her grandson to wed, she has Alexsey accompany her to Scotland in the hopes she can find him a suitable match. Determined to thwart her plans, Alexsey does everything to avoid his grandmother and runs into a beautiful, stubborn lass that not only challenges his every words but is a women who finally interests him. He seeks to court her, if only to sastify his own desires and to get his grandmother off his back, but to their society Bronwan is not a suitable wife (because she’s 24 years “OLD”).
Bronwyn has no time for the flirtatious nature of the Prince as she must help her younger sisters prepare for their own introductions in order to secure them wealthy husbands. However, what Bronwyn wasn’t prepared for was the desire the Alexsey stirs within her. Though both agree neither wishes to marry and this is to be strictly a flirtatious bout of happiness, neither can deny the ultimate attraction and pull towards each other.
It is the battle of whims between these two as they both devised plans to want the other to want them and it is a constant battle to see who will cave first. It is without a doubt a light hearted but beautiful romance watching those two come together. Especially when both Bronwan and Alexsey finally realized how they felt about one another when everyone else already knew!
For Bronwan’s part, I loved how book smart she was but she was an absolute disaster when it came to anything socially related. She was blunt, improper and sarcastic yet she was fooling around with non other than the prince. It was endearing to watch her grow more and more bolder when it came to sneaking out late and even trysting with the prince! Naughty little minx…
I have to say I think the reason I enjoyed this book more than the fairy tale was because of the stepmother and the stepsisters. Unlike the original Disney version, they were not the evil mean step sibling or mother that we have all come to depose. Surprisingly enough they were just as kind as our heroine and it made the book that much better!
My final thought was how much I enjoyed the Prince and Bronwan’s constant humorous discussions and banter that lasted til the very,
Snout the romantic lives of the 4 Oxenburg Princes. In Book two the handsome Alexsey, finds himself in Scotland with his stubborn grandmother who is determined to find him a proper lady to be his princess. Trouble is, Alexsey has no desire to marry and if he ever does, it will be a bride of his choice. So he plots to outwit his grandmother.
Does it work? Who will this battle of wills! Great book and looking forward to #3!
Amazon said this was a Cinderella remix, but you could have fooled me. Yes, step-mother, step-sisters and prince—but that's it. The story is set in Scotland, which means that the serving folk have accents but no one else does, except the Romany prince and his grandmother. (When I see "Scot" in a Regency/Victorian romance, I usually run, and if I see "Romany" I do so as well, but here I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. These are overused tropes, and really aren't exploited here except to be used as keywords.)
I would have liked to have seen Our Heroine working with her dad so we could see what keen stuff he was involved with, maybe see that she had a mind and was inventive as well. I would have liked to have seen her working in a robust manner. You know: Cinderella. It would have been great if Our Hero had had redeeming characteristics, or if the "twist" ending hadn't been something that had me saying, "huh?" Exactly what happened? And why would it make sense on both sides? Nope, it didn't.
Too pat, too cardboard, too slow, too lacking in effort. Karen does MUCH better than this in some of her other books. I'd suggest you look for those.
