    Just…. No

    Oh, my goodness! There are so many things wrong with this book that I don't know where to start. Perhaps with the cover. This book is supposed to be late Regency, and that dress wouldn't have ever been acceptable Regency garb. I found the language to not only have childish constructions but was actually icky in parts, especially when several men discuss “planting” babies in women, sometimes to their faces before marriage! Ewww. Again, this is the Regency Era. Other bits of language were far too modern, constantly jarring me out of the story. I also didn't think that a Russian princess would be named Amber. That is such a contemporary name and certainly not Russian. But the problems with this book are more than skin deep. The *hero*, and I use that term loosely, acts more like a bad guy than a romantic hero. This young woman was brought to him for honorable protection, but he determines to keep her as a mistress instead, wanting to plant those babies without the benefit of marriage. He was supposed to save not sully her. He literally made my skin crawl with all his shenanigans (and yes, he wants to bed other women as well). He was stupid and cruel, neither of which is a good quality in a romantic hero. The young woman is sympathetic given her plight, but ultimately she is stupid as well, as she allows the hero to treat her so shabbily. And, my goodness, the legal wrangling near the end was just nonsensical. If you enjoy Regency romance as I do, there are far better books out there. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

    Great Story

    My favorite trope of the Wounded/Scarred hero comes alive in the story and warmed my heart! A broken man after his wife died in a fire and her was scarred, Miles, Earl of Stratford, preferred to sit in the dark and only do business deals. Not get back into society. His brother in law and Prince Rudolf Kazanov came to talk to him about a deal, but all they could do was urge him to get back into society and find a wife. Little did he know, that wife would come to him in the form of Kazanov's cousin, Princess Amber. She had to flee Russia or her uncle was going to sell her off as a slave. All she wanted was to quickly find a husband and marry before her uncle found her. Of course her cousin thought of Miles and quickly took her to see him. A story of loss, danger, a villian, mystery and a long journey to happy ever after with several twist and turns!

    Princess Amber and the Earl of Stratford

    Originally published as "To Love a Princess" (Kazanovs #2) - The second book in the Lords of Stratford series. Princess Amber escapes a controlling, mean uncle and ends up in England as the Miles' ,the Earl of Stratford's, wife. Through some trying times, and love they manage to make it work out. There was a lot of heart wrenching emotions in this book, I loved the characters, writing and plot of this story. The steamy romance was great as well.

    Really good!

    Loved this book! Patricia Grasso always seems to know how to make a book interesting enough that you don’t want to put it down. Then she tugs at your heartstrings. Lovely story, well written.

    There is a lot in this tale.

    There is a lot in this tale. A princess in danger and needing a husband and a man dealing with the loss of his wife are the leading characters in this charming story. There is a lot in this tale and it seems to go on forever it is a very intense story. Do give yourself time to read a rush read would not do justice to this tale. I found it entertaining and very glad I took the time to reading this piece. I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
