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 th..Show More »e 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.
Firstly, Ooops I listened to this book before book 1 but I guess it didn't matter much and shows it could easily be a stand alone listen.
Pri..Show More »ncess Mercedes gets carriage-jacked and flees to a local Inn where she is rescued by Highland Hunk Daniel and, although he doesn't believe her claims, agrees to escort her to London. A sweet and touching romance grows between them and, as they journey on, several disasters befall them which only goes to strengthen their bonds - that is until they reach London.
Good likeable characters (especially kind and protective Daniel), tender feelings ignite as the romance builds but it's threatened not only by the villains who are hot on their trail....... but by themselves as well.
Worth a credit? Yes, and I'm off to listen to book one.
This last novel is about Ariadne. Through the first two, she is the independent, firecracker untamed princess. In the first novel, there was a hint th..Show More »e she and Rupert would get together. A clue like, 'these two don't like each other,' in novel one is sure to be a story-line romance in a later book. Sure enough, book three -- ta-da. Its a classic tale of determined woman and head-strong, stubborn prince. Warren manages to take this simple troupe and weave an interesting story. Although this third book has elements of the first two, she combines them effectively.
This is last in the series.I recommend the series. Its entertaining. Although all three books stand on their own, you will get more enjoyment if you listen to therm serially. These books are not historical fiction although their settings are historical. If you're interested is historical aspects through romance, this is not the series for you. Failing that, you will find these entertaining. A thumbs up.
