Warning: Spoilers below...

I liked the narrator's accent and found him easy to understand. Unfortunately, his voice did not have much expression or inflection. He could have been reading a recipe.

As far as the story, I felt there were too many incongruencies to make sense. I find it hard to believe that the Prince really loved her if he left her probably pregnant in a war torn country.. I didn't buy the reasons for leaving her behind presented in the story. If his mother wouldn't accept a farmer's daughter, well, he was going to be king, cut the apron strings. I could have seen going back with his love to reassure and comfort his mother that he was still alive. When he finally does decide to go back, an uncle takes over. Why couldn't that uncle have taken the seat to begin with so he could have returned for his love. Also, the Prince claimed he didn't want to put her in danger when he left her pregnant in a war torn country because he might not make it or she might be in further danger. It seems to me she would have been safer with his protection. And when she marries so her child would have a father, she never noticed the man hated her? Last but not least, when the Prince returns, she forgives him in about 30 minutes with the first kiss. This last installment insulted my intelligence and just irritated me for so many reasons.

A lot of reviewers complained about the cliffhangers. That really didn't bother me as long as I didn't have to wait. With the Romance Pkg, it was an easy matter to just download the short stories of the 3 part series. I thought Book 1 was pretty good and looked promising. By Book 2, I was having doubts. I've given my opinion of Book 3. Would I spend a credit on any of it? Unfortunately, no and I won't be continuing with this author. I like a tale that makes sense.
