Alisa's Review: The Prince and I by Karen Hawkins


Kindle Edition384 pages
Published August 25th 2015 by Pocket Books

From New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins, the lively and sizzling second book in a new fairytale-based Scottish historical romance series, The Princes of Oxenburg.

Max Romanovin, Oxenburg’s warrior prince, is escorting his grandmother to a house party deep in the Highlands when he and his entourage are robbed at sword point by a group of ruffians led by a man the locals have dubbed “The Scottish Robin Hood.” The battle-savvy prince instantly realizes there’s something different about this thief, and it’s not just the Scottish accent—it’s the fact that “he” is really a “she.”

Lady Murian, a young widow out for revenge against the powerful earl who killed her husband and stole his birthright, is now living in the woods with her family’s banished retainers. To stay alive, she and her band of men rob rich nobles coming to visit the evil earl. But when she ambushes the Prince of Oxenburg’s golden coach, she gets far more than she expected. For when the prince uncovers her true identity, she’s afraid that he might be the real thief…of her heart. 

Barnes and Noble:

I have to rank this up in my top favs for this year! OMG  this was just so awesome!
This book kept me glued to my kindle from the beginning to end ( when real life didn't interfere) 
Full of intrigue and surprises.
Marion is a spitfire!! Loved her independent spirit, but damn was she a stubborn woman.  She was brave, and loyal.  
Max, he was more than a prince.  He was a fascinating man.
Tata Natasha, loved her- absolutely hilarious.

A very well written story, a must read for historical romance lovers.  This book does not follow the typical story line of damsel in distress.
*I received my copy from Netgalley for an honest review*
