Publisher's Summary

When a royal summons from her brother arrives, Emma knows it's time to embrace her duties as the princess of a small European kingdom and marry the man her brother has chosen for her, a stranger she has never met. Instead, she does what any self-respecting princess would do - she runs away. All she wants is one week in London. One week to experience everything life has to offer, before she is locked away in a loveless marriage forever.

Former naval captain Nick Gregory has inherited a title he never wanted. As the new Earl of Lyndhurst, he chafes against his landlocked existence - until fate brings a mysterious young beauty across his path. Believing she's an unemployed governess, Nick offers shelter and protection to the captivating girl, never guessing her true identity.

Emma falls hard for Nick, but knowing they have no future, she flees once more, this time back to her royal responsibilities. But when she and Nick unexpectedly meet again, she learns that against all odds, he's determined to make this princess his bride.

    "Unsure at first, but glad I continued"

    This first novel is set in the early 1800's. I am a fan of historical romance, especially the Outlander series. This is nothing like those. This is the first of a trilogy written about three princesses. Warren did a nice job making her characters accessible and realistic.The plot is solid and has the right amount of suspense. At the end though, you can most likely guess the outcome. Not withstanding, Emma, is the main character you can get behind. This is much more romance in this book and only scores a one out of five on the steamy scale. You read this because of the interactions of the characters and the time period. Warren is a little light on description, but it doesn't take away from the enjoyment.

    It takes a least and hour of listening to get used to Justine Eyre's narration as it is accented for the story telling. At first I had three stars in mind for her, but eventually I warmed to her performance. I recommend this book enough that I will listen to the trilogy. I give it a thumbs up.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "GOOD - BUT I THOUGHT BOOK 2 WAS BETTER"

    I listened to the second book in the series before this one and I enjoyed it a bit more. I couldn't empathise with Emma as I found her to be immature and, after weeks of staying with, spending time with and generally using Nick, she was so selfish in the end.

    Having said that, if you're looking for a historical romance then you could do a lot worse than this book but unfortunately I didn't think it was quite as romantic as book 1. Yes, it was good but just not great and it's one of those frustrating books that has you shouting "arghhh, tell him!!" and "you love each other .... so just elope" but then that's why I'm not an author - my books would only be about 10 pages long !.

    Worth a credit? Despite what I've said above, and if you're looking for a nice historical/romance then YES I would spend the credit and I will be downloading the third in the trilogy.

    "A great escape, easy listening story."

    Really enjoyed listening to this tale. Predictable - but still fun. Especially enjoyed the narrator's change of voice with each character.

    "Entertaining story. Good narrator."

    The story was very enjoyable and the narrators voice well-suited. Some of the storyline is predictable however it accomplished its goal and was very entertaining.

    "Enjoyed"

    Enjoyed this one as well. I've enjoyed every book I've listened to by Tracy Anne Warren.
    This one had a familiar storyline as the Prince and the Pauper, somewhat. It was true love and it was so nice to see them be consistantly so throughout the book.

    "Lukewarm storyline"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Quicken the pacing, needs much stronger villain.


    Would you recommend The Princess and the Peer to your friends? Why or why not?

    No-- too many other excellent books in same genre that I enjoyed far more.


    Which character – as performed by Justine Eyre – was your favorite?

    The hero, Dominic; Justine Eyre did a phenomenal job with both male and female characters, the dialect and cadence of English accents. Eyre's performance was so incredible I finished listening to the book, where if the performance had been any less compelling, I likely would have quit part way through. Kudos to Eyre!

    Love historical and paranormal romances with smart, imperfect people who against all odds find love when they are not looking for it.

    "Great read.."
    Any additional comments?

    This was a real page turner. I loved everything about this book. Loved Nick and Emma. Loved Ariadna, Mercedes, Rupurt and Sigrid. Loved the storyline. Loved Justine Eyre's narration. Truly a great read. This is my first book by Ms. Warren but it's made me want to read all the rest she's written.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book! It wasn't a story line I had heard before and made me want to listen to it all day. I ended up getting the print version of the next one in the series and that one was also really good. I can't wait for the third one to come out now.

    "It needed something more"

    The narrator was to slow and the story needed some life threatening scenes, but if your looking for just romance this book will fit the bill.
