Summary from Goodreads:

     Two princes. One bride. A dire misunderstanding…

     Geo and Dmitri are the princes of Tybiria. Though Geo is the obvious athlete, it's bookish Dmitri that yields the credit - and consequences - for slaying a foreign prince. But whose arrow really struck the boy?

     Luccia Camerlane is the Baron of Backshore’s enigmatic daughter...as well as Prince Geo’s secret mistress…until she learns of her disastrous betrothal to none other than his brother, Prince Dmitri.

     When Dmitri is abducted by the deranged King of Llewes, star-crossed lovers Geo and Lucie must set aside their woes and differences to rescue the Crown Prince from the formidable Wintersea fortress. A precocious castle ward, a fascinating love-quadrangle complete this action packed rom com in another wickedly fast-paced fantasy adventure from C.K. Brooke, author of The Red Pearl and the Books of Jordinia. 

     My Review: Luccia is forced to break up with the younger prince of Tybiria, Geo. She does this because she has an arranged marriage to the Crown Prince, Dmitiri. When Dmitri is kidnapped by the mad King of Llewes, Luccia and Geo goes on a mission to rescue him. Can Luccia and Geo ever admit their feelings for each other? Can the two star-crossed lovers be reunited?

     I really did like the two female protagonists, Luccia and Pavola. They were very smart and sassy. I liked how Luccia was very brave to go on a mission to save a man that she barely knows. She has been very courageous and stubborn. She is willing to prove herself a good rescuer in front of Geo. She can also be very caring and loving at times to strangers. I really loved her relationship with Geo. He was a great male hero. He is wounded by Luccia’s rejection. However, I love how he still loves and cares for Luccia and takes great lengths to protect her. I also liked Pavola and Dmitri’s blossoming romance. Both of them start to bond over their love of books. I really like how both brothers were different, for one was a warrior and the other was a scholar, and were very lovable protagonists.

     Overall, this book is about love, family, and acceptance. The message of this book is that there is always hope. The characters are very well-developed. They are lovable, strong, and witty. I also thought the fantasy world was very well built. While I was reading it, the setting seemed to be very similar to Medieval Wales. The Wrong Prince is very fast-paced and it grips you from the first page until the very end. I also found it be a light and quick read with a captivating romance. I also loved the happily ever after ending, and I liked how everything was tied up neatly. Overall, I recommend this book to Dani-Lyn Alexander, Kary Rader, and J.D. Wright.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

My Favorite Books of 2021

Looking back at the year 2021, it has been a very hard year especially with the pandemic. Reading a good book is what helps me get through the most difficult times. While I did not read as much this year as I usually do, I still found some gems that a worth a re-read. These books drew me into the past and for a while whisked me away from the realities of 2021. This is the list of my favorite books of the year. Boudica has always been one of my favorite historical figures of the year. I even wrote a history article which you can find here . I can say without a doubt that Melanie Karsak did justice to Boudica's early life. It was  a gripping historical read with raw emotions! I look forward to the next books in the series to see how Queen Boudica is portrayed! Queen Esther's story has always been one of my favorite book in the Bible . When my favorite Christian author writes one of my favorite stories, it becomes a sweet treat! I loved everything about The Star of Persia ! The m

Finding Dorothy by Elizabeth Letts: A Book Review

Finding Dorothy Author: Elizabeth Letts Genre: Historical Fiction Publisher: Ballantine Books Release Date: February 12, 2019 Pages: 352 Source: Netgalley/Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Synopsis: Hollywood, 1938: As soon as she learns that M-G-M is adapting her late husband’s masterpiece for the screen, seventy-seven-year-old Maud Gage Baum sets about trying to finagle her way onto the set. Nineteen years after Frank’s passing, Maud is the only person who can help the producers stay true to the spirit of the book—because she’s the only one left who knows its secrets.     But the moment she hears Judy Garland rehearsing the first notes of “Over the Rainbow,” Maud recognizes the yearning that defined her own life story, from her youth as a suffragette’s daughter to her coming of age as one of the first women in the Ivy League, from her blossoming romance with Frank to the hardscrabble prairie years that inspired The Wonderful Wizard of Oz . Judy reminds Maud of a
