The prince who loved me - Karen Hawkins

Prince Alexsey Romanovin enjoys his carefree life, flirting—and more—with every lovely lady who crosses his path. But when the interfering Duchess Natasha decides it’s time for her grandson to wed, Alexsey finds himself in Scotland, determined to foil her plans. Brainy, bookish, and bespectacled, Bronwyn Murdoch seems the perfect answer—she isn’t at all to the Duchess’s taste.

Living at the beck and call of her ambitious stepmother and social butterfly stepsisters, Bronwyn has little time for a handsome flirt—no matter how intoxicating his kisses are. After all, no spoiled, arrogant prince would be seriously interested in a firm-minded female like herself. So…wouldn’t it be fun to turn his “game” upside down and prove that an ordinary woman can bring a prince to his knees… 

My thoughts:
This was a Cinderella story where she actually liked her stepsisters and stepmother.

Brownyn is a bookworm (yay for that), she is on the shelf (and does not care). She is helpful and good.

Then there was Alexsey, I was unsure about him. He only wanted her for a quick fling. He did not care if he ruined her and by association her sisters. But it was hard to dislike him since I knew they would live happily ever after. Still, in the beginning, he was an asshat, one that started to fall for the person he meant to seduce and leave.

Alex's gran want him with a pretty woman who can move in society. Bronwyn is not really that.

But you know, they dance around each other. There is passion. There is drama and there is a HEA.

Conclusion:
Good, cute.

This makes me think that a Cinderella retelling where she actually loved her stepmother (and stepsisters) is an idea that needs to be utilized more...I would love that!
