The Prince Who Loved Me (The Oxenburg Princes, #1) by Karen Hawkins The Prince Who Loved Me, by Karen Hawkins

A handsome, rakish prince who doesn't believe in true love meets a stubborn lass who will settle for nothing less...

In a lighthearted retelling of a classic fairy tale, bestselling author Karen Hawkins gives Cinderella a Scottish twist!

Prince Alexsey Romanovin enjoys his carefree life, flirting—and more—with every lovely lady who crosses his path. But when the interfering Grand Duchess Natasha decides it's time for her grandson to wed, Alexsey finds himself in Scotland, determined to foil her plans. Brainy, bookish, and bespectacled, Bronwyn Murdoch seems the perfect answer—she isn't at all to the duchess' taste.

Living at the beck and call of her ambitious stepmother and social butterfly stepsisters, Bronwyn has little time for a handsome flirt—no matter how intoxicating his kisses are. After all, no spoiled, arrogant prince would be seriously interested in a firm-minded female like herself. So . . . wouldn't it be fun to turn his "game" upside down and prove that an ordinary woman can bring a prince to his knees?

Lara | 2335 comments It starts today? Well, I better get started (and quickly finish up some other books)!


message 4: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments Well, I put aside some other reading and started. So far I'm not too sure. It's awfully romantic in a dreamy, naive kind of way. Well, those are just the first two chapters.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Eeep! This is checked out in all three libraries in which I have cards.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments I am next in line at one of them.


message 7: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments I must have bought the ebook on sale at some point, as I already owned it. But, I only got through chapter 3 last night. It does seem pretty light, which is good.

Lauren (laurenjberman) I liked this one. It reminded me of the film Ever After with Drew Barrymore.

Love that movie, Lauren.

Lauren (laurenjberman) It's one of my absolute favorites. I watch it every time its on :0)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments I do too! LOL! Even thought I have the DVD, I can't stop watching it in "real time."


message 12: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments So... Karen hasn't checked in. I know her job pulls her away. But, we're doing the newsletter and wondering if this series will take off, and if #2 needs to be put under "Series Reads."

Any feedback?

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments Well I know that I won't be in :P if that matters lol


message 14: by Lara (new)

Lara | 2335 comments I haven't gotten any further, but don't see myself prioritizing this series. It's a bit silly for me so far.


message 15: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (laurenjberman) I will probably continue this series some time but it isn't a priority. I will wait until there are more published because I hate waiting a year or more between installments.
