Enchanting story.

Kind of the epitome of all things you'd ever want in a romance novel. Twins, a royal guy. Yeah it can be annoying at times but really, if you're a romantic, you'll love it. Worth listening to just once for the story at the least.

Narrator was fantastic but story was bleh.

I was bored for most of it but my biggest irritation was the main girl character! I'm glad I didn't waste my money or a credit on this book.

An Accidental Birthright

She only wanted a child. Not a relationship with a man. But when she goes through AI (artificial insemination) she gets more than she bargains for. She is now pregnant with the hero to the throne. And the father is not going to ignore that. What happens next is the story line. I have read it several times. Have it in paperback and e-book. The narration was good. It was just that having read it several times the narration was better than the story.

Bad style - even for a cliché story

I didn't expect anything more than a cliché, but thought it could be a light listen for a Sunday afternoon. However, it was rather annoying because of the constant repetitions. I got that the protagonists were afraid of a new relationship after one mention. Yet it was repeated again and again. It almost felt like the author had a hard time to come up with a bookworthy amount of words without it. In addition, the protagonists kept me irritated all the way: in the first half it was the heroine then the hero. Besides being irritated, the characters were so shallow, and poorly built that I couldn't manage to connect to them. Could fixing this have been a better bookfilling strategy than the constant reps? Yep. I think so.

Great story! Needed more though

I loved how the main characters seem to fit right in with each other... I just wish there was a bit more to the story then there was. I can't quite pin what it was, it just felt like it needed something more..I must say the narrator was great though.

Makes Me Sick.

Would you try another book from Maisey Yates and/or Laurence Bouvard?

NO I would not spend a second wasting my time.

What could Maisey Yates have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Write a book that doesn't insult me and make me grind my teeth. Make me want to finish the book. I was so disgusted with how she wrote the first few pages setting up a strong female lead that you could understand her firm, deep seated beliefs then in a page turns her into a weak, doubtful and serious lustful women. She follows along like a sheep, bowing to the hero's every command. She makes excuses for every single slight given to her by anyone.
