Review: The Prince Who Loved Me by Karen Hawkins




Romance sizzles in this Cinderella story set in Scotland, the first in a sparkling new spinoff series from New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins.

Prince Alexsey Romanovin enjoys his carefree life, flirting—and more—with every lovely lady who crosses his path. But when the interfering Duchess Natasha decides it’s time for her grandson to wed, Alexsey finds himself in Scotland, determined to foil her plans. Brainy, bookish, and bespectacled, Bronwyn Murdoch seems the perfect answer—she isn’t at all to the Duchess’s taste.

Living at the beck and call of her ambitious stepmother and social butterfly stepsisters, Bronwyn has little time for a handsome flirt—no matter how intoxicating his kisses are. After all, no spoiled, arrogant prince would be seriously interested in a firm-minded female like herself. So…wouldn’t it be fun to turn his “game” upside down and prove that an ordinary woman can bring a prince to his knees…



Karen Hawkins takes a tried and true tale and turns it in to her very own beautiful story with this Scottish Cinderella retelling. I am never disappointed when I pick up one of her stories and even though this particular book does not have a Highlander hero Prince Alexsey is nothing to scoff at. Bronwyn was so easy to relate to and I just wanted everything to work out for her. I find that the older I get I enjoy spinster-stories and the smart and sweet young woman was perfect for the foreign prince. The witty dialogue and interaction between these two is fabulous. I loved this story for its heartwarming and fun easy reading pleasure. If you are looking for a pleasant read that will keep you smiling long after the last page is done than this is a fantastic choice.
