To Target the Heart: MM Fantasy Romance (A Tale of Two Princes Book 1) Kindle Edition
How can he win with the odds stacked against him?
Prince Hamish has no interest in fulfilling his duty of marrying. Not to a woman, at least. That doesn’t stop his mother, Queen Fiona, from presenting him with every eligible noblewoman that enters their castle. He’s certain it’ll be no different with the representative of the Udynea Empire.
So when they do arrive, Hamish is relieved the imperial prince, Darshan, is not the woman everyone expected. Until the man kisses him and Hamish is confronted by the very emotions he has been forced to conceal or be punished for. Emotions he is eager to explore.
But the kiss proves to be a little too public and leads his mother to take drastic measures to ensure Hamish adheres to her family vision. The contest of arms will force Hamish to make a choice: give up his happiness for convention’s sake or send the kingdom spiralling into civil war for the right to love his own way.

First off, I didn’t have a problem with the writing, but I did have major issues with Hamish and the story itself. For a 37 year old man, he did an awful lot of hand wringing and had too much damsel-in-distress syndrome. I could understand it to a point, but it got old pretty fast. I truly have no idea what Darshan sees in Hamish. I can understand compassion for another who needs help, but I didn’t feel the love or chemistry between these two gents. There were also too many things making me scratch my head. So Darshan is the crown prince and heir of an empire, so a pretty important dude, but he gets sent to the other side of the continent by himself? He doesn’t have a retinue of servants, not even a valet, but his empire is supposedly pretty posh and wealthy. Then let’s talk about the wickedest witch there ever was, Hamish’s mom and queen. So one dimensional. I lost interest with her brand of vitriol and homophobia because nothing was going to change. Apparently, she has had Hamish’s former one nighters killed. Then there’s Ethan, Ham’s middle nephew, a young kid, who everyone already knows is “the same” as them. I feel like the story had holes and it was generally a mess. Also, warning for any possible triggers, but Hamish decides to end it all by putting himself in front of a bear. This was also not his first attempt but that is alluded in the past. Then there’s the union contest. Yada yada yada. I almost stopped several times but I finished because I wanted to truly give it a chance. I liked Gordon and the kids. I will not be picking up book 2. As I said, the writing itself wasn’t bad, but the content, the story, really needs a lot of work IMO.
I personally love that the characters are older as well? I get tired of reading romances about people in their late teens or early 20s. I am closer to age to Darhsan and Hamish these days then other end of the spectrum, so it's really nice to read about people who have dealt with life and their own losses and victories. It's the story of two men who have life experience finding each other and I LOVE that.
I will say, content warning on some big mental health topics such as depression and suicide, even if they are very brief. There is also mention of consent and what happens when there is none of that. I think the character involved did a great job of handling the problem and it was handled with respect, but it's there and it may hit you if you aren't expecting it.
That being said, this is a lovely romance that is actually focused on two people actually forming a relationship. It isn't jam-packed with steamy scenes, they are there and there's a lot of talking and intimacy that comes from getting to know someone or just sleeping beside them and I am an absolute simp for that kind of content. So if you are too, i'd recommend this book.
