Publisher's Summary

Princess Una harbors no illusions about her claims to Karadok's throne. The last of her ill-fated line, she is just grateful she emerged from the dark days of war with her head still on her shoulders. After three years under house arrest, she is keen to start her own life afresh, hopefully in relative obscurity. What she does not realize is the extraordinary scheme the king has devised to find her a suitable bridegroom.

Armand de Bussell is a rogue who shirks his duties and does as he pleases. How anyone could think him fit for a princess is a mystery to him. He neither wants nor needs a wife in his life. At least...that's what he always thought before he met the Blechmarsh princess.

Contains mature themes.

Enjoyed everything about The Consolation Prize.

I had no problems completing this book. The story was engaging and I loved the heroine. She was strong in her own way and soft and sweet as well. I liked the hero, as well. Both main characters experienced growth throughout the story. The narration was excellent. I love listening to Anne F. and have many audible books narrated by her. For me, the book was therapeutic. It provided a much-needed break from the seemingly endless heart breaking news of this world. I plan to return to the series when I feel the need to take another healthy reality break.

Narrator ruined it for me

If you read it first, not a good idea to listen to the audio. It’ll ruin what you have in your head for the characters. Not sure if it’ll do the same thing if listened to it first then read it. That’s normal though. Somehow, I didn’t like how the narrator did the characters.

Even better in audio form

I truly enjoyed this book in written form,but I like it even better as an audio. The reader does a very good job of making our reluctant hero likeable. The heroine is great, too.

OK

Disappointed. For the "Princess of the Noth" I thought the story should have been more involved. Not the best character development.

Cute and fun

This story is so cute their love and respect builds, does not happen instantly. Is so much fun to navigate their victories and shortcomings. Keeping this.

I liked this book

There were lots of aspects to this book I enjoyed, but too many niggles with the plot line and characters for me to give it more than 3 stars. I’ll still eagerly listen to more in this series and by this author, though.
