The Prospective Princess Reviews
Great book, really enjoyed the journey that they both went on. Wish I'd been able to read read the first 2 books, but yeah, this was really great!
Five years ago, 15-year old Lady Brislyn confessed her undying love and affection to Commander Marchant but had gotten vehemently rebuffed and rejected. She then swore that he would regret it, and when he did, she wouldn’t be there to welcome it.Now 20 years old, the man who once denied her affections is the one now pursuing her and trying to rescue her at all costs from the evil clutches and plans of the Emperor of Isla Vis.Brislyn is Marchant's siren—his song, and he’ll do anything to get her out of harm’s way and to finally claim her as his.Will love truly be enough? Will Marchant save Brislyn in time and prove to her that he's a changed man? Will light prevail over darkness and quench the evil Emperor’s thirst for power and domination? Read and you will find out!My thoughts: For those of you who have read The Pirate Princess, The Prospective Princess nicely ties in with its story line as lot of the plot scenes intersect and mirror one another. What at times may be faded out in here may be expanded and further explained in Pirate Princess, i.e.- Petra and Charlee, Marisol and “Manny”, the outcome with the tyrannical Emperor of Isla Vis, etc. As for book one of the series, Queen of Jastain, I cannot vouch if it foreshadows or better explains anything that occurs in Prospective Princess, since I have not read it myself, but—I think it really just is a prelude to everything is all of how The King and Queen of Jastain came to be and their tumultuous love story. Don't quote me on it though! I could be wrong!#Anyway, a great third installment from this series! I enjoyed it a lot!
Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...I received a copy of The Prospective Princess in exchange for my review.Five years ago Commander Marchant broke Lady Brislyn's heart by denying her love. Now the roles are reversed and Marchant is madly in love with her, but when he asks her to marry him, Bris runs away shocked and confused. Captured by pirates she is dragged off to marry Prince Enriq, a man she feels physical attraction to but knows she doesn't love. Marchant will stop at nothing to get Bris back, even if that means risking his life on the sea he's never returned to. But things don't always go to plan, and complications get in the way even if the couple realise they want to be together...Romance, intrigue and action...this book has it all, not to mention a little bit, but not too much, of magic. The parts of the story were interwoven well, with none of the events seeming outside the realms of possibility, and the characters feeling and interacting in a way that rings true with the circumstances and with their feelings. And I very much liked that things weren't black and white in most cases!I really liked Bris as a character. She was quietly confident to begin with (until Marchant proposes then she's shook up) but as the story progresses you can see that she actually has a fair bit of confidence, and that she will act on her confidence, even if that means that she has to give up something of herself in exchange for other people. This made her a strong character, and I was glad that she had a choice in her husband from the beginning (well according to her father and Marchant anyway, other people didn't accept that too much).I liked the love story a lot as well. This isn't one of those where the couple just meet, she gets kidnapped and he rides off the rescue...rather this is one where the couple have known each other for a long long time. Though that meant that there were times that they didn't love each other, I think that it provided them with a strong base for their feelings towards each other and made them more believable, especially considering that they were pineing after each other a fair bit.The two Princes in the book where interesting, mainly because they were both examples of things not being black and white. Petra was in effect a really good guy, but Marchant didn't like him (because of jealousy basically) which painted him as slightly off white, though he was a bit redeemed in Marchant's eyes I think later on. Enriq on the other hand started off as seeming like the kind of man that would have to kidnap a wife, but then actually slowly softened (especially as Bris got to know him) so that he was a much more likeable character.I really enjoyed The Prospective Princess, though I am intrigued about Marisol and some of the other characters that weren't seen at the end of the book...
Lady Brislyn was 15 when she was rejected by her bodyguard Commander Marchant. Five years later, Marchant finds that he has feeling for her and wants to ask her father’s permission to marry her. When he tells this to Lady Brislyn she rejects him because she doesn’t believe his feelings are real. Later that night, she is kidnapped by pirates who are hired by the evil emperor to be the intended bride of his son. Marchant then embarks on a quest to rescue his love. The story is quite simple. A damsel in distress and a hero that rescues her. They meet a few interesting characters including a beautiful female captain. The villain is interesting - he is out for revenge, and wants to conquer Brislyn’s land. I also found the evil emperor’s son fascinating, for unlike his father, he is not evil. As for the setting, there really wasn’t much detail of the world building, but it was short and simple as the story was.As for the main characters, their story was sweet. Lady Brislyn loved him because she was always with him and he was her bodyguard. He was her protector. Yet, when she was kidnapped, she never lost faith that he would rescue her. She had faith that everything would work out right. Commander Marchant, however, was a womanizer, and never was serious for any woman. At first, he viewed Lady Brislyn as a child, yet over time he had feelings for her because she was now a grown woman. When he fell in love with her, he gave up his womanizing ways and has been faithful to Lady Brislyn. He was willing to do whatever it took to rescue Lady Brislyn and to make her his wife. Together, they both proved their love beyond all obstacles.Overall, the story is about friendship, love and hope. The message of the book is that love conquers all and that there is always a way. The plot is predictable and the story and setting is very simple. The characters are well-developed. I recommend this novella to anyone who is interested in magic, pirates, fantasy, and a quest for true love.(Note: This book was given to me as part of a blog tour in exchange for an honest review
The Prospective Princess starts off with Marchant declaring his love for Brislyn. I love it when the hero of the novel knows what he wants right away – no wishy washiness needed. But then things go quickly downhill for the Commander. Not only is Brislyn not yet over his earlier rejection of her but she is immediately thereafter captured. Except for a few flashbacks to fill in the love story of Brislyn and Marchant, the story is fast paced and quite the adventure. It was a quick and pleasurable read.The fantasy aspect of the story was not overwhelming so that even readers that may be a bit cautious about reading fantasy – such as me – will enjoy it. There was just enough of a fantasy aspect to carry the reader away from everyday life. Something we could all do with now and again.The love story between Brislyn and Marchant was very realistic. Despite the novel being labeled as new adult, I found that the characters were very mature. I did get a bit annoyed with the old fashioned values about sex and men and women, but that is all part of the fantasy world that Rader created. I enjoyed the secondary characters as well and look forward to reading their individual stories in the future.
I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock. I’m giving this book 4 Fangs.Five years ago, Lady Brislyn was 15 and told her protector Commander Marchant she loved him. He rejected her and she has spent the past 5 years trying to get over him. Now she is 20 and Marchant realizes he does in fact love her as she is being sought after to be the spouse of a vile emperor. When Marchant asks Bris to marry him she runs away and is taken by pirates that mean to take her to be wed.The story is very well written and the characters are both likeable and reviled as needed. The only reason I did not give the story 5 stars is it is not a stand-alone novel. Being several books into the series, it was difficult to understand some of the circumstance from the previous book. Getting over that however, I found the book intriguing. If you like historical romance, with a bit of mystical influence you should find it enjoyable.
Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?Within this book, we really get to know Marchant, who I met in The Pirate Princess, as well as Brislyn. If you read The Pirate Princess, then you know a lot of the story already, and this book fills in the blanks. This was a fun little book, and I'm curious to read the first two books in the series so I know the stories of all the characters and get the full picture.The Prospective Princess by Kary Rader was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
made it to the 40% mark and stopped reading- the plot was interesting but I couldn't stay focused with the constant time jumps between present day, 5 years ago, a few weeks ago, 20 years ago, etc.
