I usually love Katie MacAlister books. And I own a lot of them. I can read them over and over, and still be amused by the impertinent, flippant and witty tone.

This one missed the mark for me. Love scenes were cringe-worthy, Princess Dagmar is shallow and dumb, Leo is meh…..

There wasn’t really anything that made me care about the story in the first 50 pages, and it didn’t get much better from there.
