Short and steamy, but rather lackluster and forgettable.
The premise was interesting, but the execution sadly didn't live up to it. I thought that the romance between Elara and Dalton wasn't fully fleshed out and therefore not particularly believable. For a story about princesses and which was seemingly set in an earlier time, the characters sounded very modern in their actions and speech. The story was also steamy, yes, but I felt like if that was going to be its driving point, it could have been hotter.
In all, A Most Unusual Princess wasn't bad, per se, but it wasn't good either.
Princess Elara needs to find a royal husband, but claims that no man can satisfy her. Her father hires Dalton, a special guard, to watch over her while she’s courting suitors. Dalton finds her unusual behaviors charming—and enthralling.
Dalton’s aloof manner intrigues Elara, and despite their differences, they share tender moments and intimate nighttime encounters. Elara is heartbroken when her father chooses a “proper” husband for her—until she meets the mystery man.
Note: Although this novella is part of a series, each book stands alone as an individual read.
