There are two novellas about a missing princess and prince from the fictitious country of Glynaven. A revolution has occurred and two members of the royal family escaped with assassins tracking them. In Waiting for a Duke Like You, Princess Vivienne has been running for her life and ends up with the Duke of Wyndover. With her expertise with the bow and arrow and his pistol, the assassins tracking her are taken care of. In the Prince in Her Stocking, Prince Lucien has been looking for a book in which his mother hid money and papers. In the bookshop, he meets Lady Cassandra Ashbrooke who helps in his search. But he feels the assassins are near and doesn’t want any harm to come to Cassandra. He must find the papers before they are lost forever. Both of these stories are wonderfully written. The Duke of Wyndover had met the Princess years ago but she did not remember. He did as no one even came close to the attraction he felt for her. The Prince gave Cass the love she never had with her first husband. Now her life was complete.
WAITING FOR A DUKE LIKE YOU is one of Shana Galen’s most wonderful stories ever; what a delight! At the Dukeries, Vivienne is running for her life literally: assassins are pursuing her, and she is so hungry and tired she collapses. While on a scavenger hunt, Nathan, The Duke of Wyndover, stumbles upon her and gentleman that he is, he rescues her. He knows her but she doesn’t recognise him. Strange, that! Nathan is unbelievably gorgeous, unforgettable really to all but Vivienne, who doesn’t care for pretty men, however Nathan is much more than his pretty face, which is the least of his worries. This is Shana Galen at her very best! What a fabulous story, extensively researched, filled with political intrigue, action, and magnificent characters! I was enthralled from the very first lines. The romance is divine, the writing is exquisite, the chemistry between Vivienne and Nathan is palpable. WAITING FOR A DUKE LIKE YOU is sheer perfection! In PRINCE IN HER STOCKING, Prince Lucien of Glynaven, now known as Mr. Glen is on the run. The Prince is now a destitute pauper, a victim of a revolution. While struggling to remain alive during a cold English winter, he is searching for the proof of his birth and reclaim his title. This so happens will be found in a bookstore, more precisely the one commonly known as the On the Shelf bookstore. While perusing, he comes across the loveliest woman he has ever seen, and he is immediately smitten. She is Lady Cassandra Ashbrooke, a widow, and he is delighted but taken aback that she wants to talk to him, even looking as miserable as he does, always hungry, with no place to live and no money. “Cass” lives with her tyrant of a sister-in-law, has always done what she was told; she has always been quiet, sweet and docile until events make her otherwise…With Shana Galen, you know you can expect romance plus action and adventure, and the author doesn’t fail us! Both Cass and Lucien are not your cookie-cutter romance protagonists, which makes the romance even more delightful – and real! I loved that the romance in A PRINCE IN HER STOCKING revolves around books, and a bookstore. There are surprises at every corner, fabulous plot twists, and terrific character development, especially when it comes to Cass. The writing flows beautifully, the chemistry between Cass and Lucien is palpable; what a wonderful story it is! Shana Galen can do no wrong with these two exquisite novellas! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
