The Prince Who Loved Me

The Prince Who Loved Me by Karen Hawkins is a loose adaptation of Cinderella. Bronwyn is a strong female lead and Alexsey is a prince who doesn't want to be a prince. They shared a love of reading and independent nature that allowed them to connect. Their relationship started off by a chance meeting, followed by a bit of deception, then transformed into love. I enjoyed the aspects that were similar to Cinderella, but what made it so enjoyable was how the story differed from Cinderella. While Bronwyn had stepsisters, they weren't evil. Her father was also alive, and she wasn't mistreated. This story was good and I definitely recommend it. I want to read about Alexsey's brothers and get his whole family story. This book gets 4 stars from me.

The Prince Who Loved Me (The Oxenburg Princes, #1)
Romance sizzles in this Cinderella story set in Scotland, the first in a sparkling new spinoff series from New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins.

Prince Alexsey Romanovin enjoys his carefree life, flirting—and more—with every lovely lady who crosses his path. But when the interfering Duchess Natasha decides it’s time for her grandson to wed, Alexsey finds himself in Scotland, determined to foil her plans. Brainy, bookish, and bespectacled, Bronwyn Murdoch seems the perfect answer—she isn’t at all to the Duchess’s taste.

Living at the beck and call of her ambitious stepmother and social butterfly stepsisters, Bronwyn has little time for a handsome flirt—no matter how intoxicating his kisses are. After all, no spoiled, arrogant prince would be seriously interested in a firm-minded female like herself. So…wouldn’t it be fun to turn his “game” upside down and prove that an ordinary woman can bring a prince to his knees…
