Karim is past the time when he should have chosen a bride, but he never met anyone who caught his eye. Forced to choose, he holds a ball and invites all eligible princesses to attend. And that’s when everything changes.
Giselle’s been tucked away on her father’s land and doesn’t know how the royal world works. It’s her first party, and it’s going terribly until she finds herself alone in a room with a man. A man who wants to make her his.
When Giselle gives him everything and then discovers who he is…well, how good do you think she’ll be at hide and seek?
[strong]Warning: It’s instalove at first sight. Literally, like two seconds in. But don’t worry, Karim will find her…and steal her if he has to.[/strong]
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I must confess that every once in a while a character in these stories will say such a ridiculous thing I just can’t stop laughing. The award for the most absurd line in Stolen Princess goes to King Karim:
“If you cum and then take my seed your body will make the baby strong and healthy.”
Giselle was a naïve, inexperienced princess who’d lived her whole life with her father in self-imposed seclusion. She was sweet and innocent with a childlike wonder for everything except for sex, that is, once Karim shows her what she’s been missing.
Karim was an alpha bossy King who was expected to choose a queen. Waiting to find the one, he had run out of time and was forced to throw a party where he could pick one from all the eligible royal women. One look at Giselle in all her pink tulle glory and he’s all growly and obsessed with making her his.
I had the same issue with the setting of this story as I did with His Princess, as they talk and act in a manner that clashes with them taking out their cell phones or getting in an SUV.
Despite this, Stolen Princess is a fun, light, OTT story I enjoyed. As you read these stories, it’s important to remember not to take them too seriously as these alphas are written to the most over the top ridiculous.
