The Princess wore plaid - Karen Hawkins

Royal princess Tatiana Romanovin is the beautiful, wealthy, and spoiled favorite of the King of Oxenburg. On her way to her cousin’s wedding in the Scottish highlands, she and her entourage are held up by a gang of ruffians. Frightened, her servants flee, and Tatiana soon finds herself alone in an inn with no servants, no funds, and no proof of her identity. Destitute, she accepts the offer from a sympathetic (but unbelieving) innkeeper to work for her room and board while she waits for an answer to the missive she’s sent to her cousin Prince Nikolai. With no other recourse, Tatiana scrubs floors and dirty linens, waiting for her prince to come…

After a brutal, bloody battle with the French Navy left Lord Buchan limping and surly, abandoned by his betrothed because of his twisted leg, his lordship hides away at his manor house in the countryside. He leaves only once a week to eat at the local inn, drawn by the expert cooking of the innkeeper’s wife. One day, Buchan arrives to find that the innkeeper has a new servant, a beautiful scullery maid with a queenly air, and flashing green eyes that leave him breathless and increasingly aware of his lonely existence…

The challenge of winning his way into Tatiana’s heavily protected heart stirs Buchan back to life…but can he and his twisted leg—and broken heart—win a proud princess whose only goal is to leave Scotland and return to the court where she’s the crowning jewel? 

My thoughts:
A short novella about a princess and a Scot. I have not read the other books in the series, but it did not matter (though I am positive I have read something, or maybe not.) Anyway, this is a novella in that series and you can jump right in.

And when you do you meet Princess Tatiana who was in an accident and works at an inn. The inn people were so nice. She got lucky there. But no one has come for her yet, strange.

In comes Lord Buchan. A limp, a lingering sickness. Cranky. And sure enough he falls for her.
And she for him, after being arrogant like a princess to him at first.

But she is a princess! He is just a Scottish Lord.

And then they lived happily ever after. Well duh, of course they do.

A sweet novella.

Funny how he thought he was better than her because he was a lord, but she was actually a princess. Glad you enjoyed this one.

I haven't read anything by this author but I've been wanting to. Maybe a novella is the way for me to go. This one sounds good.

I think the title should say she wore a plaid sash. Sounds cute.

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

Sounds fun..but that dress on the cover is not plaid :)

Oh, no! The princess had to scrub dirty floors! Though worth it, to meet a sexy Scot. ;-) Sounds sweet.
