Though the initial attraction I had to the Reluctant Royals series was the royalty aspect, I quickly fell in love with Cole’s writing and amazing characters. Even though no royals even appear onscreen in this supplemental novella, the story still packed an amazing combination of love and heartbreak into a limited number of pages.
The intertwining timelines of Likotsi and Fabiola’s first and second meetings told the story in an intriguing manner. I generally dislike when point-of-view characters hide information from the reader, but Cole chooses her reveal moments perfectly, and to great affect.
Everyone deserves a happy ending, not just those who wear the crown.
Rating: 4 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
