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

Interview with Tessa Afshar

     It was my honor to do an interview with Tessa Afshar! Ms. Afshar is one of the top-selling Christian fiction authors in the genre. Her books have won numerous awards in the field and her books show the love she has for the roots of Christianity. I asked Ms. Afshar about her latest work, Daughter of Rome . The novel focuses on Priscilla and Aquila, who had once brought Paul into their home  for 18 months. I appreciate Ms. Afshar taking the time for my interview, and I hope you enjoy looking into the latest work by Tessa Afshar, Daughter of Rome ! What attracted you to the story of Aquila and Priscilla? Although we know little about this extraordinary couple, what we do know is spellbinding: they saved Paul’s life, set up house churches in different cities in the Roman Empire, shared the gospel with many Gentiles, and became influential spiritual leaders through some of the most harrowing years of the church’s history. Their marriage must have been remarkable! Ther
