Title: CourtedCourtedCover

Author: Jennifer Chance

Publisher: Elewyn Publishing

Release Date: October 6, 2015

Series: Gowns & Crowns #1

Rating:  4/5

This is a delightful modern fairytale romance, with all the classic ingredients – a young, very caring, hardworking heroine (Emmaline Aurora Grace Andrews), Prince Charming (Prince Kristos Andris), and the folks against their happiness, the wicked enemies (paparazzi) and a fairy godmother (the Queen)! It isn’t quite a classic (or they wouldn’t have ended upon bed together anywhere near as quickly) but it is still a lovely modern take on the genre and I enjoyed escaping into it!

Four young ladies are off on holiday, exploring Europe and giving Em a much needed break from caring from her parents who were seriously injured in a devastating car accident. They are staying in the small kingdom of Garronia. Whilst on the beach she is run into (literally) by a military man who is racing with his comrades. He apologises, warns her about the dangerous undercurrent, then runs on. He’s charming, handsome, polite and she definitely likes the look of him! She goes off for her swim and, would you believe it, gets caught in the undertow. When he spots she’s in difficulties, he dashes in to her rescue, safely returning her to the beach . . . . yes, her handsome rescuer is the charming Crown Prince and when films and photos of the rescue appear in the media, life is definitely changing for the girl who has been brought up dreaming of being a princess . . . . They’ll have lots of problems, especially with the press, political expectations and want to be princesses before they’ll achieve their HEA.

Now that might sound a little cheesy, but it is so well written that it really isn’t. You know the ending you want with any fairytale and this is no different. I found it a very relaxing, pleasurable story to escape into, a dream of a modern fairytale romance I recommend to anyone who’d like to read this genre and I’ll be looking out for the other books in this series when they’re released!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for provided an ARC for me to read in exchange for this, my honest review.
