Review Blitz - Cursed

 

  

 

A countess flees home—and the family curse requiring her to marry a prince—to hide out in the South Carolina low country. There, she meets a man who’s not quite a prince…but who steals her heart all the same.

 

Find out what happens in the fifth installment in Jennifer Chance’s Crowns and Gowns series, CURSED!

 


Synopsis:

 

When the prince she was supposed to marry falls for someone else, Edeena Saleri is done with Garronia's courts, crowns, and family curses. She grabs her sisters and escapes to the nobility-free coast of South Carolina, USA.

Refuge isn't anything like it's supposed to be, however. The family's island vacation home now borders a singles' retreat, which Edeena's sisters embrace all too eagerly. Worse, the private protection firm Edeena hires is run by the most infuriating man she's ever met--a rough-hewn, dark-eyed, charismatic charmer named, of course, Prince. He's not a royal and he's nowhere near noble, so there's no way he can break the family curse. And yet...

Vincent "Prince" Rallis has spent his whole life justifying his name. The son of hardworking immigrant parents, he's hustled for every dime, finally building a personal security firm with the muscle and grit to live up to its promises. He's used to keeping his cool, but when the high-strung, high-class Edeena shuts him down despite her obvious interest, pride demands he fight for her--even if he has to track her back to her glittering court to prove his point. Only once Prince arrives in the seaside kingdom of Garronia, he finds his troubles are just beginning.

Sometimes love in Garronia can be magic. And sometimes you're just
 Cursed.

Cursed (Gowns & Crowns, #5)Cursed by Jennifer Chance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #5 in the Gowns & Crowns series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. I recommend for complete understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers, I think this incredible series should be read in order.

Vincent AKA “Prince" has been hired to watch over the semi-royal family of sisters who have arrived here in South Carolina. He cannot help being attracted to the oldest of the siblings, Edeena. She is the one who hired his company. Now he must find out what this is all about.

Edeena must make a path for her sisters to build upon. She has to fulfill a family dream in order to break a long ago curse. What she wants really will not matter. If she let's time run out, there are more consequences to come. And.... time is running out.

This series just has so many surprises! These characters are just amazing. The banter is funny. The sexy times are hot. This is just such a fun read. This author never lets me down.

Courted: Gowns & Crowns Book 1
Courted: Gowns & Crowns, Book 1 - Jennifer Chance

I really wanted to like this book. Based on the synopsis, I didn't expect it to be an original story. It sounded similar to many other romance novels. But I did think it sounded like it might be a cute love story, so I gave it a shot. Unfortunately, I didn't like it. While I have a few nitpicky things, there isn't one glaring issue I had with the book -- other than I couldn't find a connection with any of the characters. Not a single one. And I didn't 'feel' the connection between Em and Kristos. I actually skipped the sex scenes, that's how disconnected I was to this story and the characters. I'm not sure if my lack of interest was based on the author's writing style, or my mood. Regardless, I don't intend to read any more books in this series. Good thing I didn't pay for it, but I did waste a Kindle rental.

Blog Tour w/Review # 2 - CAPTURED

 

Fans of Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries will enjoy CAPTURED, a New Adult Contemporary Romance with a modern royals flair by award winning author Jennifer Chance. Lauren Grant is a hard-partying celebutante dedicated to avoiding anything that might tie her down, but Dimitri Korba, the gorgeous and arrogant captain of the Garronia National Security Force and her unwanted bodyguard just might change her mind in this new installment in Chance's Gowns & Crowns series.

 

 

 

 

About Captured:

Title: Captured

Author: Jennifer Chance

 

Publisher: Elewyn Publishing

 

Release Date: January 19, 2016

Series: Gowns & Crowns #2

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Length: 207 Pages

ISBN: 9781943768066

 

For beautiful, pampered Lauren Grant, the idea of love without strings is a fairy tale and a trap. Though she’s skillfully maintained her image as the carefree celebutante, for years she’s been systematically stalked by the richest—and most ruthless—golden boy of the Jet Set. To stay one step ahead, she’s used every resource at her disposal. But now, stuck in Garronia with the whole world watching, she’s finally cornered by her nemesis, with no way out.

 

Well, no way out but one: the stubborn, forceful, impossibly gorgeous captain of the Garronia National Security Force, Dimitri Korba. The first man she’s ever trusted… which makes him the most dangerous man of all.

 

Dimitri Korba’s greatest duty is to keep those in his care safe. Since losing his closest friend, he's vowed that he will not fail another. Not even the haughty, foolhardy American blonde whom he can’t get out of his mind. And once Dimitri glimpses the terror Lauren hides behind her icily perfect façade, protecting her becomes his only goal.

Dimitri has no idea how far his commitment will take him, however, nor how powerful his need for Lauren will flare when she’s not only in his care, but in his arms. With each stolen moment, the danger around them intensifies, burning away every doubt…until all that remains is their fierce, unexpected passion. But will that be enough to save them?

Excerpt:

 

Attitude

 

Dimitri’s lips twitched as Lauren trotted up the steps, and he wasn’t able to wipe his expression fully clean before she saw him. “You’re looking satisfied.”

 

He leaned forward with his elbows on the railing and gestured to the sun. “It’s almost sunset. There is much to be satisfied about.”

 

Hmm.” She swiveled to take in the sun as well, her face half-hidden by giant sunglasses. “You do this every day? Just, you know, stand here and watch the sun go down?”

 

No. We only do it on the days when we wish to be good to ourselves. The rest of the time, we make do with a lesser life.” He held out his hands. “Let me take your things and put them inside. I will get us both a beer so we can celebrate the sunset appropriately.”

 

She willingly handed him her shopping bag, then hesitated with her purse, keeping it close to her body. “I’m good with this. But thank you.” He had no choice but to take her bag and retreat. Dropping it inside the door, he fetched the beers quickly enough as his mind clicked through the possibilities. He needed to see the phone, before they were to meet others. And that would be after sunset, so he didn’t have a lot of time.

 

How could he get Lauren worked up enough that she demanded a shower before she saw anyone else?

 

The solution was, of course, obvious. He’d always been known for his excellent ideas in the field. It was good to know that his instincts did not fail him while he was on leave.

 

He pulled the tops off the beers and headed back outside.

 

Lauren was sitting on one of the sling chairs, angled toward the sun. A thin crawl of clouds had surfaced on the horizon, running purple against the water. It looked more beautiful than any photograph he’d ever seen, and he’d watched tourists try to capture the magnificence a thousand times over. Some things, you had to experience in person.

 

He handed her a beer. “Good, yes?”

 

It’s pretty, I guess.” Her smile softened her sarcastic words, and when he held his beer out to her, she clinked hers against it. “What are we toasting to?”

 

To a perfect sunset. It’s enough.” Instead of taking a seat beside her in the matching swing chair, though, Dimitri folded his body to the porch, his head level with Lauren’s knees as he lounged back on one elbow. He was close enough to her body to feel her heat, sense her sudden tension. But it wasn’t the tension of a frightened woman, he thought. Simply one who was uniquely, subtly aware of him.

 

He took a long pull on his beer. He could work with that.

This is book # 2 in the Gowns & Crowns series. This book can be read as a standalone. After reading the books in the series I am of the mindset that it should be read as the author intended. The reader can find more joy and understanding by reading the books in order.

Lauren has come to Garronia, with her best friends while on holiday. While there, one of her friends falls in love with the Prince. This makes all of them fall into the spotlight. The news for Lauren, is not good.

Dimitri is the head of security for the country the girls are currently visiting. They run into one another often, since he is most trusted. With all that is going on, can they fight the attraction? After a possible tragedy begins to occur, Dimitri uses a plan to protect Lauren.

This story has fairy tale magic all its own. After reading the first book in the series, I was not sure how the author could keep it going - but she has. This book is every bit as good as the last. I am super excited to see where she takes us next!

Worse, every time she plays her audition piece, she mangles it. Is it too late to be the musician she'd always dreamed of? Should she even try?

 

Determined to get clarity, Emmaline accepts a friend's offer for a whirlwind European vacation. First Stop: a real live fantasy kingdom—the perfect place to sort wishes from reality.

 

Prince Kristos Andris was a respected captain in his nation’s military… Was. In the wake of the tragic death of his elder brother, he's managed to avoid his duties as the new Crown Prince of Garronia for months. But now he must accept his responsibilities and leave his troops behind. Outraged at the restrictions of his new royal position, he'll do anything for one last adventure. So when opportunity suddenly lands in his arms in the form of a dreamy-eyed American girl, he embraces it (and her) for all he's worth. What's the harm in a quick fling, after all? It won’t change what he knows he must do…

 

Only this is Garronia in the summertime, where passion has a way of ruining even the most sensible of plans.
