Rating: 4 Cups
Princess Emmaline “Emma” Von Aufenstadt wants nothing more than to have the freedom she so desperately craves. When her brother does not show up when he is supposed to, she decides it is the perfect time to experience London like never before.
Nick Gregory's idea of heaven was when he was on the open seas, commanding his ship as a naval captain. Now, as the Earl of Lyndhurst, he finds his feet have been firmly planted in the ground with no way of escaping.
When Emma meets up with Nick, she decides to use his mistaken impression of her to her full advantage. What began as a simple journey of freedom and exploration soon becomes more as Nick shows her a world of passion and love. But how can she, a royal princess, marry a man whose very station is so far beneath her? Emmaline should have known that commanding a ship full of navy men would have prepared Nick to fight the biggest battle of all...love.
You take two characters that are on opposite sides of the spectrum according to society, throw in a dash of wonderment, a sprinkle of love, and a taste of passion and you come out with The Princess and the Peer. Once again Ms. Warren has written a novel full of all the great qualities a historical romance should have. The emotional imbalance that Emma continuously floats on is described so wonderfully, I could practically hear her heart thudding in agony as she tried to figure out what to do. The way Nick's eyes were opened through Emmaline's fresh experience with the simplest items (such as a London market) was so beautifully written that I could almost picture the scene myself. Whether you are a fan of historical romance, Tracy Anne Warren, or just picking up the book because it sounds good, you will not be disappointed with your choice.
