Summary

Princess Rozala of Denbourg enjoys her reputation as a wild child, especially when it annoys her father, the king. When Rosa's latest girlfriend brings scandal to the palace doors, her father sends her to Britain, in the hopes that time with her cousin Queen George and the new Queen Consort will finally make her face her responsibilities.

After overcoming personal demons and quitting the high-stakes world of finance, Lennox King is content with keeping her life simple. As the new director of a hospice charity, she uses a strict business approach to help the charity grow and prosper.

When Rosa comes to work at the charity under orders from the Queen Consort, babysitting a spoiled princess is definitely not on Lennox's agenda. But when passion flares between them, will Lennox's past stop their relationship in its tracks, or will a twist of fate bring a new future that neither was expecting?

Pushed boundary of believability a tad

The narration is very good for this audiobook. The story was okay. I found the believability a bit hard to accept at times, and didn't really take to the the characters that well, as its hard to identify with either of them. The Rosa character worked well, I felt the Lennox's past was a bit overplayed, and really from plot perspective I felt a bit underwhelmed as the threat from Rose's ex did not seem immediate. There needed to be more foreshadowing leading to the later event with Rosa's father. But many liked this, so it could just be it wasn't for me.

A great alternative to this - The Princess Affair, by Nell Stark which I think does a better job of allowing the reader *(listener) to identify with the pauper as well as experiencing divide between Royal and peasant more effectively.

Good sequel

I enjoyed listening to this book but missed Bea's London accent and Cam's Scottish accent from the first book which added to the character's so not everyone spoke in cut-glass English. I liked how new characters were introduced alongside the familiar characters from the first book.

Should have briefed the narrator

Overall I enjoyed this story and had no problem with Vincent’s narrative skills but with this being a sequel I feel the producers should have made sure she was aware that one of the characters is actually a proud Scottish woman and doesn’t have an upper class English accent as she’s been given in this book of the series. The character doesn’t play a big part in this story but I don’t feel that’s an excuse to forget about a big characteristic of hers.

Just as Good as the First!

Didn’t think I could love any characters as much as Bea and George but Rosa and Lex are just as deeply developed and lovable. My new favorite series!

It was good but...

I love Jenny Frame! Her books are fun to read and keep you interested. This one, in my opinion, wasn't as good as the first. SPOILER I didn't know it was going to be this weird mother/daughter-ish relationship that some lesbians seem to fall into. I think it's unhealthy and wasn't prepared to read about it. Other than that, it was ok. Nicola Victoria Vincent knocked it out of the park again. Love her narrations.

Overall, I would recommend this book because it also includes the first book’s characters and it was interesting to hear about their lives also.

Very heteronormative lesbian fiction.

It reads like a normal romance novel with the man's personal pronoun changed to she and her. They do not even get renamed with a feminine name. The damsel wears cute little outfits while he always wears suits or masculine clothes. The damsel princess ogled the dom for their musculature and the description could be ripped straight from any male romance lead. Now I know plenty of butch lesbians. This did NOT feel like that. I feel safe in saying they do not wear 'aftershave'. It was after the second occurrence of this that I stopped listening. I do not take this lightly. I have several hundred audible books in my library and have stopped listening to 3. (Pacific Vortex and something else) I loved the first book. It was like listening to an episode of Crown. This book lacks that completely. That book also was tres hetro. the use of an inteliflesh 'strap on' was annoyingly straight. Yes, I know lesbians who use them but they do not eagerly suck them to felate their girlfriend. This is not a lesbian thing.
I was waiting to see how this book dealt with sex scenes but the repeated aftershave references killed it.
The performer also reads spoken text well but the descriptive passages were too fast and flat like a robot or a student in my class.

I loved it

I love all the royal formalities and look in into the love lives of the royals. Enjoyed that the first and second book were tied together by a lot of chapters. I can’t wait for book 3 and 4. Would it be presumptuous to assume there could be a straight Theo romance novel with a gay supporting cast? I hope Theo finds love! He’s one of my favorites.

First book was better

I wish they had kept the same narrator through out. But what can you do. I liked that it followed up with characters from the first book.

I liked

This was a good story. I enjoyed it a lot and would have given it 5 stars but I also listened to the audible of the first book as well and I liked the narration from the first book better. I mean they made Cameron sound regular when she's Scottish.
