***NOTE TO READERS: Gilding the Lily-pad is NOT a sequel to The Frog Prince; rather, it is a "companion novel." What does that mean? It means that Gilding the Lily-pad follows the same story as The Frog Prince--but it is told from Roman Habsburg von Lorraine's point-of-view (rather than Leigh Fromm's). Although Gilding the Lily-pad is

Shelves: d-bag-men, lies
I gave Frog Prince three stars and was hoping that GtLP would be similar, or better, filling in blanks about Roman, but I think it was worse. I ended up disliking Roman so much. He's clearly in love with her, but most of the time is lying or a jackass or jealous or all three.

I still don't understand why Leigh is in love with this dude. In both books there's a 2 1/2 month gap where they fell in love with each other, but he was lying the entire time to her. This dude was definitely a frog and a wh

I loved this book! I enjoyed the Frog Prince and Leigh was definitely one of my favorite female characters but reading the book from Roman's perspective answered some questions I had from the first book and really helped me to get a better feel for his character. I really liked him in the first book but by the end of Gilding the Lily-pad, he was at the top of my book boyfriend list :) As usual, while reading one of Elle Lothlorien's books, there were many snort laugh worthy moments but an ...more

I was first introduced to Elle Lothlorien when I read Alice in Wonderland. I had no idea what to expect but the moment I finished it, I immediately searched for more books by her.

My mom lent me The Frog Prince and within a few days I found out about Gilding the Lily-pad. I read the first few chapters before it came out and was glad be able to finish it when it did.

I love reading books from 2 different perspectives and can only imagine the time it takes to be able to write them (let alone just a

This is the same exact tale as The Frog Prince - it's just told from Roman's point of view. I felt like I had a lot better understanding of the events from his perspective. I did get upset with him though. He doesn't always think before he acts or speaks. It is a cute Cinderella story and I liked it. I wish I wouldn't have read this back to back with The Frog Prince - since it is the same story it would have been a good review of the other book and I probably would have liked it even more if I ...more

I loved this book. A great companion book to "The Frog Prince". This is the first companion book I have ever read and was worried I wouldn't like it since I know how the story ends but it was great to see the other side of the story. Now I have to locate the rest of the books by this author. If they are half as good as these two then she is very very talented. Plus I just found out now there is going to be a sequel to these two books. Yay!!!

Slow reading only because it is a companion to The Frog Prince, which I have already read. Since it is the companion, I already know what happens and so I keep getting distracted(I have a short attention span at times), for other things to read. I am enjoying it though. I think I am enjoying the story through Roman's eyes even better than Leigh's.

Just as fun as the original

This isn't the sequel to The Frog Prince, but rather the same story told from Roman's point of view. Such a fun, funny and adorable romance. It makes me want to go back and read the original again and I can't wait for the sequel! I'm a huge Elle Lothlorien fan. She never disappoints!

I just barely finished Elle Lothlorien's *The Frog Prince* (which I LOVED), and was pretty excited to read this companion book and get the H's POV. I am so happy I did! I'm looking for more Elle Lothlorien's books - I have been so pleased with the two I have read!

This was an AWESOME companion to The Frog Prince. It truly gave you the story from Roman's point of view. This added to my overall enjoyment of the story as a whole - and made me want to go back and re-read The Frog Prince. It also made me want a tree house even more than I did before. A definite must read for the romance/comedy lovers!

Great book. I read the Frog Prince and this book was like reading a new story. It was fresh and totally different from Roman's perspective. Like all Belle's novels, I couldn't put it down. Can't wait for the Frog King.

Amazing book! I was looking forward to reading this book and was not disappointed. This author is one of the few that can make me laugh out loud while reading. I love The Frog Prince and I love this book as well.

What an amazing book. I LOVED The Frog Prince and this book was excellent. I loved seeing or reading the other side of the story. So many times I wondered what Roman was thinking and this takes you into his world. Amazing!

Fun fun fun! I love every one of Elle's books. They are fun and original. Read this one but also the frog prince.

I love this book! The Frog Prince was so funny I was excited to read about Leigh and Roman's love story for Roman's point of view. And Elle Lothlorien did not disappoint. Great read.

A “military brat,” Elle Lothlorien was born in Germany and spent her childhood in such far-flung places as Puerto Rico, Charleston, S.C., Italy, and Washington D.C. Sadly, the only language she ever became semi-fluent in is English. She writes romantic comedies that are loose riffs on the popular fairy tales she read as a child–stories she still loves as an adult. Elle’s first self-published ...more
