    Sweet romance

    This is a sweet, romantic story of a man dealing with loss and learning to live and love again. To make his struggle more difficult the woman who has gained his attention is his long time assistant and his deceased wife's cousin. Stephani has been in love with Raoul for years but has always hid her feelings for the sake of family and most recently respect and her job. She now has a decision to make. Go after who and what she wants or move on in both her personal and professional life. This story takes us on the journey these two travel to find their HEA. I would definitely recommend this one.

    3.5 Stars - Well written, enjoyable read

    Another enjoyable read from Donna Alward! This royal family has faced some hard times and it was nice to see Prince Raoul find his happy ever after. This book picks up in parallel to the ending of the first book, The Playboy Prince and the Nanny, but can easily be read as a standalone. The plot is not new and the twists are not unique, but this love story between Prince Raoul and his assistant is an easy read that gets a little bit angsty but delivers a nice happy ever after. I really enjoyed Stephani. She had a strength about her that I admired. She was committed to doing what was right for her – and was resolved to do so even if it meant leaving the job, country, and family she has come to love. Raoul irked me at times. He has had a hard time with the loss of his wife, and, add on the pressures of knowing he would one day take over the throne, I could definitely see why he needed to be cautious with his choices. What irked me though is what he put Stephani through – for someone who always needed to be conscious of what impact his decisions may have it got me just a little mad how he ended up treating Stephani. Of course, he does come to his senses – this is a romance novel, so that was a given – but boy did I want to give him a good talking to a couple of times! I enjoyed catching up with other characters from the first book, and Diego’s children were just as endearing in this one. Having met the other members of the royal family already and seeing the impact that Rose (from the first book) had made on the family made this an even easier read for me – I’m not a huge fan of royal romances but this family did make me smile and enjoy each page I turned. Donna Alward has created a wonderful fairytale world in Marazur and this book was a nice read to escape in. She has crafted a well put together book that is an easy read. A must read for those who are fans of royal romances or anyone looking for an easy read to escape in with a happy ever after.

    D Alward’s The Crown Prince’s Bride

    Are you ready to be swept away in a wholesome, heartwarming sweet read? You will sample part of the life that royals must live through the eyes of Stephani, the assistant to the Crown Prince of Marazur. Description is deftly woven into the story making the reader feel as if they are there with the vivid, colorful and well defined characters. Power packed with emotion, fear to love again, loss and grieving, family issues, shenanigans, personal growth, friendship and love,this fairytale story moves at a steady pace. This is book # 2 in the Royal Duology series. It can be read as a stand alone. It was the first one in the Duology that I read and the past and present mixed effortlessly making it easy to follow the royals and their activities. A highly recommended read!! I volunteered to read The Crown Prince’s Bride. Thanks to St Martin’s Press via Net Gallery for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

    Will he finally see what they could have?

    I hadn't read the first book in this series, but I will have to get it to read about Diego and Rose. Stephani has been in love with Raoul for years. The problem is, he was married to her cousin and she is his assistant. He just doesn't see her that way. He has been grieving the death of his wife and Stephani has been there through it all to help him and his children. She has been a good friend. Then on his birthday, Raoul finally really looks at her. Will he open his eyes and see what they could have? Or will he keep his heart locked away forever?

    Royal Romance

    The Crown Prince’s Bride by Donna Alward Royal Duology #2 Crown Prince Raoul: recently widowed, father of two, afraid to love and be hurt again… Stephani: Raoul’s assistant, first cousin to deceased wife of Raoul, has been “in love” with Raoul for years… The story begins right where book one of this two part story ended with a kiss between Raoul and Stephani. The story has interactions, events and a few things happening but it left me wanting more even with the HEA that eventually transpired. I am on the fence, much as Raoul was during most of the book, on this story. It was so-so and okay but not all that…at least in my opinion. If you are looking for an old fashioned love story that is somewhat predictable with a fairytale ending this book might be for you…just don’t expect fireworks or many emotions from either main character. Thank you to St. Martin’s Press – Swerve for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars
