About the book:
A bitter and reclusive prince. A determined intruder. An unlikely friendship.
His face scarred from a witch’s curse, Prince Sebastian retreats inside his castle, resentful and angry. He shuns contact with everyone except the Red Hoods, the elite soldiers he trains and leads.
Four years ago, Sienna was kidnapped. Still traumatized by her ordeal, she needs to learn to protect herself to feel safe again, and she wants the Prince to train her.
Reluctantly, Sebastian agrees.
But long-held beliefs aren’t so easy to cast aside. Can the bitter soldier and the haunted girl overcome their demons? Or will their pasts rip them apart?
Review by Katy Haye:
This year’s reading has been binges and slumps since Spring. I’m delighted to tell you that The Scarred Prince tugged me out of a slump that had left me sighing and tossing aside every book I seemed to pick up for the last month.
Sienna is an absolute delight of a heroine: smart, resourceful, she knows exactly what she wants and isn’t afraid to go for it. I loved her.
And the writing and pacing was just such fun: fast-moving and tremendously enjoyable. I read the whole thing with a smile on my face.
The romance is full of emotion, but as a glorious change from the norm, it doesn’t mark an end to the story. Sienna has plenty else she intends to do before she gets married and starts to even think about babies.
This is a stand-alone story, but it fits into a bigger world with plenty more stories to come. I can’t wait to try the next. Highly recommended!
