I love paranormal and historical romance novels. I love talking about books and finding out about new authors and books to read. I also love supporting and promoting my favorite authors.

This one was ok. I liked the whole toad prince angle. It made it humorous and added an interesting twist. The plot and character development moved along well up to the point where he was set free from his curse, then things just seemed to move too fast. They didn't waste any time hooking up once he was human. She didn't stop to think that maybe she shouldn't be so quick to trust him. He became human, they hooked up, then they were telling the other they loved the other. His lack of believing in love didn't seem to cause to pause before he took the step into loving her. I think this one would have been so much better if it was longer. Their relationship needed to grow more once he was human. And some things just didn't add up. He slips and says a comment about his brother, calling Urbanus his twin brother while he is still a toad, but she doesn't seem to realize he made that major slip. How did she not catch that? Then in the cave, an extra set of clothes that fit him just so happen to be in the satchel that Celo gave Gemma? There were some holes in the storyline that just made it feel rushed and not congruous to a warrior princess trained to be a mercenary and a prince cursed by his own family into being a toad for years. It had potential; it just needed more. I did like the back and forth between Gemma and the toad Prince, there was some great dialogue there and the bad guy was well written. You definitely didn't like Urbanus after the wedding night trickery.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
