    An adventure.

    An adventurous story filled with unexpected thrills, fascinating characters and hidden agenda's. Under Karen Hawkins skillful hand The Prince and I became a glorious romance full of triumph, determination and intrigue. As I read through every page the images were so vivid I almost felt like I was there. The experience was so captivating I felt the emotions as if they were my own. Murian's convictions lead her down a dangerous road but she did not pull back. She refused to be rescued by anyone but herself. That is a heroine I can look up to. Gregori is thrust into a situation that he never saw on the horizon. Will he follow his head or listen to his heart? I received an ARC of the Prince and I in exchange for an honest review. Amidst all the chaos Karen Hawkins has created a romance that sticks in the mind and entrances the soul.

    The Prince and I

    I read a Prince who Loved me, and enjoyed it, but found the characters a little slow- The Prince and I was awesome!! so much fun. I had an idea that the story was based loosely on the tale of Robin Hood. Karen Hawkins weaves an enthralling tale of prince who gets captured. The characters grow throughout the story and you start to root for the HEA. There are several stories woven throughout this one, and they all work, the prince who is on several missions who finds that all of them lead back to one estate. I found the story more engaging, and the hero grow so much, he makes several mistakes and listens to the heroine - actually listens to her- and involves her in decisions. I almost feel like this could have turned into two books? The heroine, is not happy with her story, and actively works to change it, she is also not afraid of the romance that develops between her and the hero. Overall a great story, amazing characters- I even started to like the Grand Duchess in this one.

    A Robin Hood Fairytale with a twist!

    This is an awesome addition to a fun series! The Prince and I is technically the third book in the Princes of Oxenburg series, however you will see it often listed as the second, due to the first book being part of another series. So, just in case you like to read in order as much as I do.. Here's how they connect. The Oxenburg Princes Series: 1)How to Pursue a Princess- The Duchess Diaries #2 2)The Prince Who Loved Me 3)The Prince and I What I loved: • The "Robin Hood" theme.. I don't believe I have read that troupe before. • The words written in a Scottish accent. That always brings me more in touch with the characters. • The chemistry and banter between Murian and Max was wonderful. • Murian is a strong woman and I liked how she knew herself well. • The end. It was one I didn't expect, which doesn't happen too often, and as such was a nice surprise! • Tata Natahsa is as ever the cantankerous old grandmother and makes me laugh. • Loved Max and the way he dealt with his Grandmother. There is really nothing I didn't like about this book.. apart from the fact that I now have to wait for the next one to read about Niki. I would highly recommend this series! ** I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review **

    A Unique Robin Hood Tale

    General Gregori "Max" Romanovin, Warrior Prince of Oxenburg, has been tasked to accompany his grandmother into the Scottish Highlands for a house party. He does not believe for one moment that it's only for that purpose, knowing his Tata Natasha so well, but as he has his own hidden agenda and is still suffering a great personal loss, he's willing to humor her, but only for so long. When they are accosted by a band of highwaymen, Max is determined to find them and make them pay. Lady Murian Muir has a mission of her own. Prove that her husband's death was no accident and re-claim the home that was stolen from her and her people. But the new lord of the castle is determined to crush them before they can find the proof they need so they've had to be very creative in their search and their survival. A once-in-a-lifetime passionate love grows amidst the intrigue, deceptions, secrets and dangerous plots but they are destined to follow different paths...or are they? I'm always thrilled to read a new book from Ms. Hawkins and she delivers a unique take on the classic Robin Hood tale that I found to be refreshingly sexy, insightful and humorous. While there were several subplots unfolding, with wonderfully fleshed out main and supporting characters, I was never confused because the pace was steady and each plot point was revealed when it should to keep me glued to the pages to see what would happen next. This series keeps getting better and I'm eagerly anticipating the next installment. Well done, Lady Hawkins! I received an ARC for an honest review.

    5 stars each for story, characters, and writing!

    THE PRINCE AND I is an absolutely enchanting and ingenious story based on a retelling of Robin Hood. Prince Gregori Maksim Aleksandr Romanovin, known to his friends as Max, is accompanying his grandmother the Grand Duchess Natasha Nikolaevna to Scotland. “Tata Natasha” wants to retrieve something that was taken from her a few months before by the Earl of Loudan. On their way to Loudan’s Rowallen Castle, they are sort of attacked by a band of very well-mannered highwaymen, and relieved of some of their possessions. Their leader is a young widow, Murian MacDonald Muir, whose husband was killed by the Earl, and she has vowed to take back her Rowallen, her home. Meanwhile, she is struggling to help her band of widows, children and two men stay afloat. THE PRINCE AND I begins with a breathtaking swordfight, it got my full attention right away, and I could not stop reading, I would not stop reading! What a marvellous story! I’m not usually fond of retellings, but this book looked good, and it is beyond magnificent! Ms. Hawkins weaves a terrific story around the legend, Murian is an exceptionally fascinating character: she is brave, dedicated to her people, clever, loyal; a perfect heroine. And Max is truly a Prince Charming: a former general in the war, he is an honourable man, but also considerate and caring. Murian and Max’s road to romance is fraught with several ambushes, and to say the least, it’s difficult for them to be together, but how positively delectable is every little moment they manage to steal. Tata Natasha is an eccentric, cantankerous, but clever and kind-hearted old lady, and every one of Murian’s band of sort-of-thieves is fabulous. THE PRINCE AND I is an exceptional book, each page is filled with elegant, luminous and eloquent prose, vivid descriptions of the scenery and the characters, witty banter, all sorts of plot twists and surprises, and a romance for the ages. There is not one dull paragraph, not one superfluous chapter, not one word out of place. And the ending is positively enthralling! THE PRINCE AND I is an unforgettable story filled with love and hope, and it will be cherished for many years to come. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I will be waiting with bated breath for the next instalment! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
