Princess Menshikov of Oxenburg, Alexandra Romanovin, is done being courted by men interested only in her position and wealth. Inspired by tales told by a beloved tutor of the bold and brawny men of Scotland, Alexandra visits that misty land, hoping to find true love. But while traveling without the protection of her royal name, she finds herself accused of thievery by an angry innkeeper. Rescued by the dashing and handsome Earl of Kintore, she thinks she’s found the answer to her prayers—a man worth falling in love with.

But Kintore has other ideas. An avowed bachelor who long ago swore off marriage, the earl wants nothing more than a passionate interlude with this beautiful, exotic stranger. But soon Alexandra’s intoxicating beauty and seductive touch leave Kintore wondering if a mere interlude will be enough...

<b>***ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review***</b> I thought this was a nice little tale. As with most novellas, it did leave me wishing for a longer story, but I'm greedy. Alexandra may have been a little forward for the time period, but I think the author made it work. She was also a really likable heroine, which I appreciated. She was independent and went after what she wanted, albeit a bit more enthusiastically than was appropriate. LOL But it made the story fun. I liked the set up with the way the characters met and how they were immediately drawn to one another. I think they both had interesting back stories that were just begging to be fleshed out. Kintore, the lead male character in the book, was quite brooding and angsty, but given what happened it was fitting. The pace of the story was pretty quick, but again, that's to be expected with a novella. I would definitely recommend if you were looking for a quick, sweet read.

Immediately Alexandra response with like passion, Kinton is looking for an interlude but soon discovers Alexandra&rsquo;s lineage and this confirmed bachelor wants nothing to do with marriage. But Princess Alexandra has other plans. This was a quick an easy novella. Since the story was brief the character development and emotional attachments seemed a little rushed. That being said, I found Princess in Disguise a cute, hot, romance and an enjoyable read. This copy of Princess in Disguise was given to me by Pocket Star in exchange for a honest review. This book was published on February 25, 2013.
