It was surprisingly good, which I didn’t expect at all. I wasn’t sure about this book before I read it, but the moment I started reading it, I can feel that it will be amazing. I was glad that it turns out to be a nice and beautiful story. Stolen Princess is the first book in the ‘Royal Conquest Saga.’ This book are full of surprises, family drama, and plotting revenge. It was very intense.

The storyline was nicely done, and the whole thing about elves and faeries was amazing. I really dig the wh

I'm a little on fence. It was nice but it could have been so much better. The storyline does have an Austen vibe but it fell just a smidge short. The characters dynamic threw me off a bit and I definitely think the author could have explored those relationships a bit more.

What did I just read? Damn what a ride. I was constantly trying to guess where this story was going and was surprised by how unpredictable it was! At first I just thought this was a romance between a Fae Prince and and Elf. Boy was I wrong.

The story is actually about three different females and their POVs as they maneuver between the Fae and Elven realms. Each of them have their own love interests and all three males have bits and pieces I love about each of them.

Hoping that there was more to Nikki Jefford’s story in The Monster Ball anthology, I was excited to find out that it wasn’t the end of Aerith and her sisters.
Stolen Princess continues immediately on from the ending of Enemies and Lovers, where Aerith has returned home from the ball, with the promise of seeing Jhaeros again.
Stolen Princess is beautifully written and detailed that you’ll be captivated and immersed in the story - I didn’t want it to end. Luckily there’s a second book with False Q

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader's copy of this book.
Fantastic story! Wow, this book jumps right off continuing from The Monster Ball novella. This moved right a long, but poor Aerith & Jhaeros, they have to overcome so much just to be together! The main couple, Aerith & Jhaeros, are very likable, but so is her sister, Mel, and her boyfriend, Devdan. Loved the twists & turns this had, with unexpected happenings making it so unpredictable. I really wanted the couple to have their HEA tha

So after reading the short story of Aerith and Jhaeros in "The Monster Ball" I was intrigued enough to set that book aside and pick up this book. Their story was total instalove, they went from enemies to being totally in love in ONE night . However, I gave the author the benefit of the doubt since it was a short story. I thought that she had no choice but to rush their love story. So, initially I picked up this book to get a little more depth and insight into Aerith and Jhaeros instead of just ...more

Spellbound and Aurora Sky readers, this one's for you! 💙👸

I wanted to do something silly and fun, but also dark and sexy with twists and turns.

* November 2019 Update: The book now includes the prequel novella from The Monster Ball Anthology Year 1. It has been blended in as the first 7 chapters of the ebook, paperback, and audiobook. -xo- Nikki

After reading The Monster Ball anthology I was hooked on Nikki Jeffords story and characters. So thrilled when she announced a follow up. Stolen Princess did not disappoint. It is multiple points of view but it works really well. Aeriths sister Mel is given a larger role and she is just as badass as her sister. Can we please have a book just for her!? There are twists and turns throughout this story that keep you on your toes. Stolen Princess has characters you'll love and some you'll hate. Ther ...more

I love how Nikki continued her Monster Ball story. I loved Areith's character and I loved getting to know Mel better. There were so many twists and turns you didn't know which way was up. Can't wait to see what she does with the next book!

Stolen Princess by Nikki Jefford a five-star read that will steal your heart. This is the first read in the Royal Conquest Duology and its simply amazing, I had come across the beginning of this story in the monster ball anthology and I was so excited to read more. Aerith is someone you will be rooting for the whole story, and the secondary characters all have their part to play, they will keep you on your toes and guessing all the way through. This will leave you with questions and thrill you a ...more

I absolutely loved this follow up to The Monster Ball short story. I highly recommend reading that before starting Stolen Princess to get more of this juicy background. I was so happy to finally get to see more of the Fae World and it sounds like in the sequel we will get even more of it which I am highly looking forward to. One of the things that I liked in this book was that I was never exactly sure where this story was going. It took me in different directions that I wasn’t expecting which ke ...more

Stolen Princess was such a great book to read! I loved how the book picks up right where the novella in The Monster Ball ended and provides not only POV from Aerith (Who I LOVE as a character!) but also from her sister Mel. Both sisters have been through a lot, but the way they interact is fun and makes for a great character development for both! I really enjoyed getting to see more of Aerith and Jhaeros relationship. After returning from the Monster Ball, real life interferes with the relations ...more

Gah! All the love for this one!
Stolen Princess is the continuation of Nikki’s short story “Enemies and Lovers” featured in The Monster Ball anthology. Aerith and Jhaeros’ story continues to be thrilling and entrancing, full of sexy moments and all kinds of twists. Longtime Nikki fans will not be disappointed, and new readers will discover a great rad, whether they start with Stolen Princess or decide to check out the Spellbound Trilogy, the Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter series, or the Wolf Hollow S

This was such an amazing book. The story began in another book but started well without the back story. I felt the book kept my attention and kept me guessing. I absolutely loved the characters, some more than others. I am looking forward to reading the next one to see how everything unfolds.

Ok, I went into this book expecting a fun, *smexy,* and quick read. HOWEVER, I found a story that I absolutely loved and couldn’t stop thinking about. Now, don’t get me wrong, I expected to love it. I however, didn’t realize just how invested I would be with all of the characters.

Ok, first things first I love elves and I love the fae, so you could imagine how excited I was for a story that promised me BOTH. YES! I need more elvish and fae mixings! But these weren’t all of the supernatural creatu

After reading the prequel Novella to this phenomenal new series from Nikki Jefford in The Monster Ball Anthology I was so excited to read Aerith's story.

When Nikki announced the Stolen Princess as a follow up I seirosuly did a little happy dance and Nikki certainly didn't disappoint me with this. I am now completely hooked on this new series.

I loved how this was told from multiple POV instead of just from Aerith's POV, It works well making this instalment flawless. There are some really clever t

Nikki Jefford's most fantastic series yet!

Stolen Princess is a fantastic read with relatable characters even if they are from a different realm. I highly suggest you read The Monster Ball anthology novella of Enemies and Lovers first, because Stolen Princess picks up right after the ball. And although Nikki Jefford does catch the reader up, it's even better first-hand.
After Aerith's 15 month stint in Faerie, she is finally able to return home, despite her brother-in-law 's wishes. Aerith, sick
I fell in love with Aerith after reading the Monsters ball anthology, it's not necessary to have read that first...but I highly recommend, because it's fabulous.
This book has it all action, adventure, kick arse heroines, well written side characters and swoon worthy love interests.
At the heart of it all though is the love of sisterhood, the bonds of family both good and bad and a desperate desire to find love acceptance and home.
Of course it wouldn't be complete without a wicked Prince and scoun

Holy sweet berries!!! This plot was delectable!! This follows the novella from The Monster Ball anthology and it's nothing like how you'd image the story to be! This was a surprising book filled with twists, turns and wonderful new characters!! With heaps of drama and danger you never know what will happen next! There are some steamy scenes that may make you rethink your thoughts about certain characters. Aerith goes through these highly dramatic encounters and yet she remains strong. She is tes ...more

We first meet Aerith and Jhaeros in the Monsters Ball anthology (so get that first as you'll fall in love with them from the moment they meet!) so when I heard that this was becoming a full length novel I did an actual happy dance. You can read it as a stand alone though so don't worry if you get this and not the other.

Aerith's in laws are a complicated lot and decide to insert themselves back into her life causing mayhem and mischief like only the fae can!

Such a fun story!!

Stolen Princess is a brilliant follow up to the novella found in the Monster Ball Anthology (id highly recommend you read that first as it’ll really enhance this story). This is such a fun read with loveable characters and a great story.
The world building and attention to small detail by the author adds depth to the story and brought everything to life in my imagination. One of the things I enjoyed the most is that this story is told from 3 female character POV which is unusual

When I read in the anthology that small story it got my all: ouuh I want more! And I wasn't deceived. At ALL! It picks up right where the Monster Ball finishes and ouh la la! I couldn't put it down! Great character (*wink wink* for Mel! Totally sassy but awesomly lovable), as well as great storytelling that makes you feel immerse in this world (yes it'sfantasy, but I could rock pointy ears ;) ). I will definitely follow for many more as this author needs to continue, she found her way. W

What a crazy, beautiful, wild ride!! 

I fell in love with Aerith and Jhaeros' story in the Monster's Ball anthology short and was ecstatic when I heard Nikki Jefford decided to continue their story. This is the first full length novel I've read by Nikki and I am hooked, on these characters and her writing. I loved seeing Jhaeros and Aerith's adventure expand, and I absolutely adore Mel. This book is EVERYTHING!! 

It's a love story, an adventure, an intrigue, but most of all it's addictive. From st

What a ride this book is.. You don't know who to trust, or what will happen next. It is a great read that takes you on an epic Journey.. The Name says it all, it's legit a Stolen Princess story, that takes place as soon as the Monster Ball was over. It's a rollercoaster ride from the first page, Nikki Jefford wrote an amazing tale and I can't wait to see what happens next!

I loved this books. Omg it had so many oh snap moments that I was not expecting! I loved reading the continuation of Aerith’s story. I liked how we got to kind of see how her life was as a princess. This book is a little dark but definitely worth your time. That ending though wow! My heart was so happy but I can’t wait to read more!
