2 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Princes have pomp and glorynot crushes on commoners Nothing gets the tongues of Londons high society wagging like a good scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, its all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefited from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detectiveand an even greater interest in Eliza. With a trade deal on the line and mounting pressure to secure a noble bride, theres nothing more salacious than a prince dallying with a commoner. Sebastian finds Elizas contrary manner as frustrating as it is seductive, but theyll have to work together if theyre going to catch the culprit. And when things heat up behind closed doors, its the prince wholl have to decide what comes firsthis country or his heart.

I was actually leaning more towards a “so-so” rating until about halfway through this one. Both the heroine and hero redeemed themselves (she started out rather silly, he arrogant), and the slow pace picked up a bit at that point. This had some hints of P&P mixed in throughout.

There is a murder to solve as well as an unfolding romance, and both H/h are drawn together by their shared isolation and need for honesty and loyalty.

I did come to like both H/h and enjoyed the humor and growth of both characters. 4/5⭐️ #Harlequin #NetGalley Out 11/19 @ScientistSam
