Release Day Review: The Prince and I by Karen Hawkins

  [space size=10]


My Rockin' Review


 

A witty take on Robin Hood this time with the return of the Oxenburg Princes. If you'll remember in The Prince and I, it was a Cinderella remake. Karen Hawkins charms us again with this sweet fairy tale remake.

Gregori "Max" Romanavoin, is a warrior prince and a General in the Grand Army of Oxenburg. He and grandmother, Tata Natasha, the Grand Duchess or more like the devilish gypsy queen, who likes to turn people into goats, whom we've met several times, are on their way to the dastardly Earl of Loudans' estate. He is holding something over Tata and Max is determined to find out what is going on. Surprise, Surprise, on the way through the woods his coach is pulled over and he is asked to "donate" to the cause by "Robin Hood" and his (her?) merry band of thieves.

Lady Murian is fighting for survival with her band of widows and children. Her husband whats the rightful owner of the estate Lord Loudan has  taken control over. She is determined to prove that he acquired it be nefarious means. She find it irritating that she has become attracted to one of his "friends", Max.

The scenes between Max and Murian are littered with humor and romance. How can they be together when he is dedicated to his country and she is dedicated to her people? Will there romance end before it can even begin?

This twisted take on Robin Hood will bring you laughter and a satisfying ending. This second novel in the Oxenburg Princes is a humorous tale. Tata and her antics are troublesome and at times hilarious. I'd love to find out what Tata Natasha can get herself into next!

 

P.S. Don't you just LOVE that cover!!! I'd love a wall poster of it!! So gorgeous!!
