The Prince Who Loved Me by Karen Hawkins

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I could not put this book down! It was wonderful! The story is basically a "Cinderella" plot with a few changes..  No evil step sisters, she isn't treated poorly etc.

What I loved: 
• Alexsey's laid back attitude as a prince, which I much preferred than a rigid arrogance. Execpt of course in his pursuit of Bronwyn.
• Bronwyn's love for books, and her sassy wit.
• The chemistry and banter between the Hero and Heroine.
• Mairi (one of Bronwyn's sisters) I loved her spunkyness. Truly hope she gets a story!
• Pretty much everything else! The writing was fantastic, I laughed and could often be found trying to sneak moments to read because I was enjoying it so much!

I did have a few moments where I wondered if there was a previous book in this series... which there is!  It is called How to Pursue a Princess - The second book in the Duchess Diaries series.  If you haven't read that yet, don't worry, this book can be read as a stand alone but the first book is also fantastic! So personally, I would read that one before. 

To Purchase:

Here's the Blurb:

A handsome, rakish prince who doesn't believe in true love meets a stubborn lass who will settle for nothing less...

In a lighthearted retelling of a classic fairy tale, bestselling author Karen Hawkins gives Cinderella a Scottish twist!

Prince Alexsey Romanovin enjoys his carefree life, flirting—and more—with every lovely lady who crosses his path. But when the interfering Grand 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' 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?
