Review: The Question of Royalty

The Question of Royalty The Question of Royalty by Kai Andersen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Recommended for fairy-tale retold fanatics. Fairy-tales retold which slip under my radar pleases me so. Ms. Andersen is a new to me author who catches me off guard and I'm delighted. This book is a loose reinterpretation of the Princess and the Pea. I didn’t realize this until near the end of the story and I have to say, I much prefer Ms. Andersen's version.

Serena is a princess on the run. She is doing her best to get away from her arranged marriage. When she finds shelter at a hunting lodge resembling a cat drown in water, the fun begins. She never expected to meet a royal family on holiday at the lodge. Nor did she really want to have anything to do with a Prince. Said Prince is an arrogant little shit who thinks the world kind of revolves around him. Granted, for the most part women are throwing themselves at him. Still, he is shocked when Serena isn't trying to force him into a marriage. Instead, she wants nothing to do with him and wants to leave the area as soon as the rain lifts up.

The writing style of this story is smooth and amusing. The characters are well done and one can really visualize the location. The characters are created with a fairy tale stereotype in mind. This actually helps keep the book more consistent with fairy tales. The added erotic element is definitely a plus. The erotic scenes in this story are sensual with sly sexual tension. The Prince easily seduces Serena into a puddle of goo. The conflict in the story also flowed well into the Princess and the Pea storyline. It is cleverly done and entertaining. Overall, this is an erotically sweet piece with a lovely happily ever after.
