    Reviewed for THC Reviews45 stars Many a little girl dreams of growing up to marry a handsome prince As a lover of fairy tales in my childhood I know I did And that’s part of the premise around which The Prince’s Bride is based Our heroine Jocelyn believed from the time she was ten years old that she was going to marry a handsome prince She’s been having a successful season in London and has even caught the attention of a visiting foreign prince but when he entices her into a private meeting at a ball she ends up the target of assassins when she witnesses another private meeting she shouldn’t have Enter our hero Rand a Viscount who works for the English government and who has been investigating the threat to the prince Knowing that the assassins will probably go after Jocelyn again he secretly uses her as bait which nearly gets her killed Feeling badly that he placed Jocelyn and her family in danger he vows to protect her by any means necessary even entering into a marriage of convenience so that he can whisk her away to his uncle’s rural castle for safe keeping where they fall madly in love It was all a romantic fairy tale scenario that I very much enjoyed readingWhile reading the last couple of books in the series where we first meet Jocelyn I had some reservations about her character I could relate to her dreams of marrying a prince and sometimes she seemed very sweet Other times however she seemed a little shallow and mercenary something that Rand believes of her as well in the beginning Admittedly Jocelyn is none too happy about marrying a mere viscount at first but it’s not just that his title isn’t what she’d hoped for It’s also because she was being forced to marry a man out of convenience rather than choice which was understandable From there Jocelyn only grew and I have to say that I also grew to like her quite well She’s instantly charmed by Rand’s uncle and his castle even if it is in disrepair and she begins to look at the bright side of her marriage At least her husband is attractive to the point that she’s almost constantly hot and bothered when he’s around She figures if she’s going to be married she might as well take advantage of the perks of matrimony It was really funny how Rand was trying to woo her into wanting to make love with him but she was already there and couldn’t wait Jocelyn also continues to prove herself as she falls for Rand She quickly comes to terms with the idea that being married to him could be great even though she initially believes he doesn’t have much to offer in the way of title or money Love soon trumps the material things for her so that when the full truth comes out the reader knows that Jocelyn is being sincere I also like that she wasn’t the featherbrained beauty she previously seemed to be but actually showed intelligence in thinking several things through I was also glad to see that she finally gave up her vanity in favor of having better eyesight by wearing her glassesOut of Thomas’s three friends who were introduced in the previous book Rand was my favorite He turned out to be a dashing hero here I loved his protectiveness toward Jocelyn and that even though she wasn’t the wife of his choosing he was willing to marry her out of a sense of honor and duty Since he was expecting her to be shallow he’s very surprised to find depth and intelligence underneath her beautiful exterior I like that he was interested in marrying someone with intelligence rather than beauty because that’s how I am And of course he got both I also like that in spite of being wildly attracted to her he didn’t just demand his husbandly rights or fall right into bed with her He actually wanted to romance her a little and get her to want him which wasn’t too difficult Rand didn’t plan on falling in love but he found that Jocelyn was an easy woman to love I also adored him for trusting her When Alexei basically kidnapped her to gain Rand’s cooperation he appropriately read into the clues she left behind for him and instinctively knew that she hadn’t left him for another man even though that was nearly everyone else’s initial thoughtSince the bulk of the story takes place at a rural castle there aren’t as many supporting characters on the canvas as there were with some of the previous books Jocelyn's two sisters Marianne and Becky are seen a few times and her brother Richard The Husband List finally returns from his lengthy trip to America Marianne and Thomas The Marriage Lesson marry but it’s little than a mention in the background Richard and Thomas also accompany Rand on his long journey to Avalonia when he goes after Jocelyn Rand’s uncle was a hoot Other than him I’d say that Prince Alexei is the primary supporting character in this book I was never quite sure what to make of him because he has his moments of decency but he’s also a manipulator I guess in the end he was OK because he didn’t make good on any of this threats and at his heart was only looking out for the well being of his country While none of the unattached characters seem to carry on and get their own books it does look like Alexei’s sister who wasn’t seen in this story will become the heroine of the next book of the series Her Highness My WifeOverall The Prince’s Bride was a very enjoyable read for me Like its predecessors in the Effington Family Friends series it had its light hearted moments but it also had some serious ones as well primarily in the form of a little political intrigue I think this gave it some substance and kept it from being overly breezy which was my main issue with a couple of the other books in the series While the reasons for Rand and Jocelyn needing to marry so quickly could have been a little stronger they didn’t really try very hard to come up with other potential ways to protect her as could a few other plot points such as Rand capitulating to Alexei’s reasons for luring him to Avalonia it was still a good read Also Rand and Jocelyn do fall in love rather quickly but for some reason to me it didn’t seem like it Maybe I was simply enad of the fairy tale quality of the story or the marriage of convenience regardless of the strength of the reasons it’s still a favorite trope of mine Or maybe it’s because I felt a strong emotional connection between Rand and Jocelyn Whatever it was I did have fun reading this book Up until now I’ve found enjoyment in Victoria Alexander's stories but I hadn’t yet found one that I could call a real keeper With The Prince’s Bride now I have and I’m looking forward to reading of the series
