The last place Lady Wenderley Davis ever expected to find herself after swearing off princes forever was living in a palace with two of them. Even if it is only temporary. And she did agree to it. Kind of. Against her better judgement.
But then, she’s never been one to hide her heart, nor hold back help from anyone who needs it. And if ever there’s a family who need help, it’s this one.
As two weeks stretch to more, Wenderley throws all she has into showing the princes and their family how to smile again, and she’s loving every moment of it. Which is a problem. Because she’s very quickly becoming attached, and – as the man she’d rather forget keeps reminding her – the one thing she can’t do is stay.
Why This Book:
Having read the first two books in this series, I was excited to read the third and final book.
From the first scene, I was there with Wenderly. Having met her in the previous books, I already looked forward to reading her story, but the way Currie wrote the opening funeral scene immediately hooked my heart to Wenderly’s. I loved her immediately and had to see what became of her.
Lady Wenderly Davis is one of those characters I immediately identified with. If you’ve ever been disappointed in love, or reluctantly harbored feelings for someone you never thought would notice you, you’ll relate to what she goes through. I particularly enjoyed the role she falls into of caring for Prince Marcos’s son, Prince Ryan. She’s a wonderful caretaker and her heart to help and desire to do right despite the personal cost makes her completely endearing. Prince Marcos is a likable hero who tugged on my heartstrings.
Emotional Engagement & Pacing of the Story:
I was hooked from the first page and kept reading so that I finished this novel in record time. The sweet, swoony romance was so engaging that I didn’t ever want to put the book down. Every character was well developed and engaging.
Elements I Especially Liked/Disliked:
I loved the relationship between Lady Wenderly and Prince Ryan. It reminded me of my nanny days and made me laugh in several places.
The faith element of this story is organic and integral to the story. I loved how Currie handled the character’s struggles with scripture in mind. At no time did I feel preached to – not even a little. Yet, if you removed the faith element there would be a gaping hole in the story.
The ending is everything fans of royal romances could ask for. I sighed, I smiled, I whimpered just a little at the thought that this wonderful series was over.
“What if God was big enough, but His answer wasn’t the one I wanted?”
“It was the way he said them–the gentleness of his voice, the way he stood there for a few moments more, holding that connection–that made those words so much more than simply goodnight.”
I highly recommend Heart of the Crown by Hanna Currie to fans of royal romance looking for a Christian perspective in their story. This novel is full of loss, laughter, and loads of love. I absolutely adored it and can’t wait to read more of Currie’s writing!
