A Crown Prince gets a second chance at love with the woman who’s always been there - in the next book in the prince duology from Donna Alward!

The Crown Prince of Marazur is suffering from a broken heart. After losing his wife and future queen, he knows he’ll never find love again with a partner as wonderful as her. He’s thrown himself into his duties and is trying to be a better father to his two children, but he’s lonely. Even though falling in love seems impossible, so does spending the rest of his life alone.

Stephani has been Raoul’s assistant for years. Smart, loyal, and discreet, Stephani is fantastic at her job. Except for the fact that she’s been in love with her boss since her first week of employment, not that she would ever act on it. Besides, Raoul is first in line to the throne and she’s his assistant. If Raoul ever marries again, it’ll be with someone who can be a future queen. Not someone like Stephani.

When Raoul’s date for a state dinner is unable to attend, he invites Stephani. She’s well-versed on the issues and castle protocol, and Raoul’s always been comfortable with her. But when Stephani arrives, Raoul hardly recognizes her. Is this stunning woman the same one who’s run his office for years?

The Crown Prince’s Bride is the ultimate fairy tale for readers looking for Cinderella to get her prince—and be able to keep him past midnight.

The Crown Prince's Bride (Royal Duology #2)The Crown Prince's Bride by Donna Alward

The Crown Prince's Bride is a bittersweet, moving and emotionally penned storytelling of a Crowned Prince who lost his true love, only to find it again in the most conflicting of circumstances.

Crowned Prince Raoul lost his wife in an accident, leaving him grieving but still must carry on his duties. Stephani is Raoul’s deceased wife’s cousin and Raoul’s assistant. There is an attraction there but Raoul is extremely conflicted about Stephani.

The Crown Prince, Raoul, starts to explore his feelings for Stephani only to discover that the woman that had helped him through his loss might be the answer to making him whole again. Emotions, mixed feelings and insecurities might just destroy any chance that their relationship can work.

The Crown Prince's Bride is truly a bitter-sweet story. Sometimes, being the survivor is the hardest place to be, adding a royal title just increases the complications, including public opinion. Understanding that, I found Raoul’s indecisiveness and decision making disconcerting.

The Crown Prince's Brid is a strong and entertaining royalty romance.

I received the ARC copy of The Crown Prince's Bride from St. Martin's Press. This is my honest and voluntary review. The Crown Prince's Bride is set for publication Jan. 9, 2018.
