Synopsis according to Goodreads:
My enemies know me as Lord Bannor the Bold, Pride of the English and Terror of the French. Never in my life have I backed down from any challenge or betrayed so much as a hint of fear—until the war ended and I found myself a reluctant papa to a dozen unruly children.Realizing that I couldn’t lop their little heads off or throw them in the dungeon, I sent my steward out to find them a mother and me a bride—an attractive, meek, maternal creature too plain to tempt me to get her with child. You can imagine my horror when he returned with Lady Willow of Bedlington, a spirited beauty who made me think of nothing else!With her cloud of dark curls and the sparkle of passion in her eyes, Willow was everything I’d sworn to resist. I never dreamed she would join forces with those mischievous imps of mine to teach this cynical warrior just how sweet surrender can be.
Charming the Prince is a sweet romance, in the typical vein of romances. I like the multiple fairy tale tropes woven into the story. I’m not a huge fan of romances, so I don’t know if this ranks as a great one or a standard one or a bad one. It’s a cute, quick read with the standard hero/heroine struggle…plus added mischief with some plot twists and hellion children.
I recommend it for fans of romance and fairy tales, and romantic fairy tale retellings.
