5 Wyvern Stars
Wyvern's Prince - Deborah Cooke

 

She’s engaged to the crown prince of Urbanus of Regalia, but Gemma knows that her fiancé was the once to arrange the attempt on Drakina’s life. She’s intends to keep the betrothal and take vengeance but she didn’t count his beguiling charm. Alone is Urbanus’ palace, Gemma can only rely upon herself for her survival – or can she trust the mysterious stranger who pledges to aid her, for his own reasons?

 

This ‘Dragons of Incendium’ romance is an adventurous and spellbinding fairy tale read that readers can really enjoy. There’s a hero, a heroine, a frog, a quest, a warrior, spells and a villain or two to keep readers glued to the pages and that’s not counting the wonderfully sweet, spark flying, sizzling chemistry romance that builds between a mysterious stranger and Gemma. Although neither expected the other to be the ONE, so the romance is a slow build up that has readers shivering in anticipation but chuckling in amusement at their antics and quick witted remarks.

 

The plot is fast paced, exhilarating and fun with lots of suspense as Gemma and the stranger try to make it to the Queen’s Grotto in search of an antidote. Readers can’t find one dull moment throughout this adventurous romance and the stunning and unique conclusion is very satisfying and has readers chuckling and cheering in wonder and amazement.

Reading progress update: I've read 278 out of 278 pages.
The Prince - Jillian Dodd

Finished! My final rating is probably going to be 1.5 stars. It was a fairly quick read and occasionally mildly interesting, but unfortunately not very good. I'm still not quite sure what happened with the love triangle at the end. I think they just gave each other to other people, like presents?

 

E-book versions of both this and the second book are available for free (with DRM, which I loathe) - I don't plan on continuing on with this series, though.

The Prince's Baby by: McKenna James
The Prince's Baby - McKenna James

 

 

James takes hearts back in time to the beginning of a modern dynasty. Before there was Andrew and Eliza or Edward and Maggie, there was a fiery, no nonsense diplomat and a frustratingly, sexy Prince. The Prince's Baby is Alison and Sebastian's unconventional, yet unforgettable journey to royal infamy. What began as a battle of wills, becomes a scandal of epic proportions. Love was never on the agenda but fate had other plans. I love these stories dearly, but I adore Alison and Sebastian for laying the groundwork that started my love affair with this family. McKenna James is a master at crafting fairytale magic with modern day twists.

The Prince - Jillian Dodd

Montrovia has no poverty, and all its hotels are 5-star. These are supposedly facts about the country, rather than demonstrations of the cluelessness of the book's disgustingly rich characters. Readers are also expected to believe that there may be socialist eco-terrorist elements (everyone is equal, abolish currency, etc.) in the country hoping to assassinate the prince.

 

And I'm pretty sure there's some sort of love triangle, but Huntley's "emotions" are written so oddly it's hard to tell. If a guy is even slightly emotional around her, her heart softens for him and she cares for him. But if he isn't physically near her, she at least 90% forgets about him.

The Prince - Jillian Dodd

"Oh, for gosh sake, give it a rest."

 

The heroine (do I call her Huntley or do I use her real name?):

- Has sex, multiple times, with guys she literally just met (at least one instance of which the author put on-page)

- Is willing to walk around in a tiny thong and nothing else in order to keep the Prince's attention

- Is 100% sure she could kill a trained agent she studied and crushed on when she was in school, although she hopes she could fit in a bit of sex before killing him

- Thinks about sex a lot, in case this wasn't already clear

 

And yet edits her language.

 

Also, I'm still wondering how she could write her senior dissertation on another country's top spy when supposedly no one knows his real name. Like, how do you research someone like that?
