Overview

Princess Rinda of Balinore knows of only one way to get her cold father’s attention – to be an obnoxious, spoiled princess. When she finds out that the king plan to marrying her off to a far-flung nobleman, she puts on her best bratty show in front of the entire court. But Rinda’s plan backfires, and she soon finds herself married to the most ineligible man ever. Her new husband is monastery raised, poor as dirt, and a traveling minstrel.

A very, very bad traveling minstrel.

But Alek isn’t what he seems like on the surface, and neither is Rinda. She won’t take this marriage lying down, and schemes to find herself a new husband – a king. But as she and Alek travel together, they learn that not only are appearances deceiving, but goals can change in the blink of an eye, and love can get in the way of the strongest plans…

The Scarecrow King is a romantic retelling of the King Thrushbeard fairy tale.

    Great book

    I found myself sniffling a couple of times. This book is not explicit but it's still a very good romance.

    Confused...why is the cover 17 magazine?

    I like Jill Myles' books. Is this one a real thing? Or a hoax?

    I really enjoyed the retelling of this fairytale. I found our heroine a bit irritating in the beginning but it adds to the overall story and there is a reason for her arrogance. I wish I could find more books like this one. This definitely is not a delete and will go into my re-read pile! If you like fairytales in the true sense of the word, you will love this book.

    Excellent Fairy Tale Romance

    Myles' retelling of King Thrushbeard (or The Stork King) is a sweet, romantic and exciting tale. Rinda and Alek are both terrific characters with great chemistry; with her sharp tongue, Rinda could easily be unlikable, but she is actually very sympathetic. Plus, the lack of explicit sex is a nice chabge of pace from the glut of erotic romances on the market.

    My only complaint is that the book needed a second more thorough edit. There are quite a few typographical errors.

    I hope Myles tackles more fairy tales in the near future. The Scarecrow King is highly recommended to fans of Kathryne Kennedy, Gail Carriger, and teen girls in search of an admirable heroine. -- lyradora
