Review

Karen Hawkins presents the second book in her new Duchess Diaries series, HOW TO PURSUE A PRINCESS. In this installment, the matchmaking Duchess of Roxburghe with her adorable flock of pugnacious pugs, has been waiting patiently for the chance to find a match for her beautiful god-daughter, Miss Lily Balfour and already has the perfect man in mind. That man is NOT the seemingly impoverished prince who is determined to sweep Lily off her feet.

“A humorous and romantic twist on Little Red Riding Hood, Lily and Wulf must decide which is more important, power and money . . . or love everlasting?

Lily Balfour swore she’d never marry, but when her father’s unforgiving debts leave her no choice, she finds herself caught between a handsome, wealthy suitor and an irresistible, indigent rogue.

An innocent lost in the woods . . .

The sensible solution to her family’s financial woes is for Lily to bestow her affections upon the Earl of Huntley, an alluring, well-to-do widower handpicked by her matchmaking godmother, the Duchess of Roxburghe. Huntley is pleasant and attractive with plenty of money, the perfect candidate in every way. But Lily knows she’s in big trouble as soon as sexy, unprincipled, and passionate Prince Wulfinski sweeps a hot, possessive glance over her.

Powerful and sexy, Prince Wulfinski declares he will make Lily his, no matter the cost . . .

By his own account, Wulf is a pauper, barely able to afford his own cottage. Yet nothing will stop him from pursuing the strawberry-haired beauty with every cunning trick he can muster. To make the right choice, Lily must trust her heart and not just her head to lead her to the riches—and romance—she desires.”

Lily and Wulf’s story is incredibly witty and sweet with the kind of fairytale charm that cannot help but remind us of our own childhood dreams of handsome princes and happily ever after.

…incredibly witty and sweet with the kind of fairytale charm…

Karen Hawkins is one of those “can’t miss” authors, in that her stories should always be read and that she consistently delivers stories that you will want to enjoy over and over again.

This reviewer is a HUGE fan and anxiously awaiting the arrival on the bookshelves in October of the next installment in this fabulous series, HOW TO ENTICE AN ENCHANTRESS.
