The Prince and I by Karen Hawkins

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This is an awesome addition to a fun series! The Prince and I is technically the third book in the Princes of Oxenburg series, however you will see it often listed as the second, due to the first book being part of another series. So, just in case you like to read in order as much as I do.. Here's how they connect. 

The Oxenburg Princes Series: 
1)How to Pursue a Princess- The Duchess Diaries #2
2)The Prince Who Loved Me 
3)The Prince and I

What I loved:

• The "Robin Hood" theme..  I don't  believe I have read that troupe before. 
• The words written in a Scottish accent. That always brings me more in touch with the characters.
• The chemistry and banter between Murian and Max was wonderful.
• Murian is a strong woman and I liked how she knew herself well.
• The end. It was one I didn't expect, which doesn't happen too often, and as such was a nice surprise!
• Tata Natahsa is as ever the cantankerous old grandmother and makes me laugh.
• Loved Max and the way he dealt with his Grandmother.

There is really nothing I didn't like about this book.. apart from the fact that I now have to wait for the next one to read about Niki. I would highly recommend this series!

Here's the blurb:

Meet the Princes of Oxenburg... Fairytales with a sizzling, Scottish, and delightfully sparkling twist. 

Gregori Romanovin, Oxenburg's warrior prince, is escorting his grandmother to a ball deep in the Scottish Highlands when he and his entourage are robbed at sword point by a group of ruffians. Led by a man dubbed the Scottish Robin Hood, battle-savvy Gregori senses that something's amiss - that 'he' is really a 'she'.

Lady Murian is a young, beautiful widow seeking revenge against the powerful earl who murdered her husband and stole his birthright. Living in the woods, she and her banished band of men rob wealthy nobles visiting the evil earl.

But when Murian ambushes the Prince's golden coach, she gets far more than she bargained for. And she's left fearing that he is the real thief...of her heart.
