Princess Alexandra Sasha is second in line to the throne. Like all second children in the British Royal family she is the rebel who is determined to break the glass cage around her. She spends her time clubbing, partying and scandalizing the press. She is living a double life, hiding her true self, because she thinks it is easier and more acceptable than being honest with the world.
Despite being a player Sasha is drawn to the open honesty and integrity of the intellectual soccer player from upstate New York. Kerry knows this is going nowhere, but like a moth to a flame, she finds it impossible to resist. Both women want something they can never have. Only time will tell how long they can sustain even the closeted secret of their passion for each other.
This is a wonderful fairy-tale romance that will put a smile on your face and joy in your heart. For Brits reading this you definitely need to suspend disbelief and allow yourself to dream, but if you can imagine a Cinderella who can help Prince Charming escape from Victorian expectations then this is the book for you. I think your enjoyment of this book will depend crucially on lack of knowledge of Britain, British society and the monarchy An American working class Rhodes scholar and a dyslexic wild child British Princess fall in lust in a club.
From there on in we have a number of set pieces leading to a fairy tale ending. I found it increasingly impossible to suspend belief in this story. Overall, a very well-written, but weak-plotted, romance with not very believable characters.

Or if you are and willing to turn off the bollocks-alarm A perfectly relaxing read. Nov 03, Bonnie rated it really liked it. I am not much of a follower of royalty, so I wasn't sure I would like this. However, I enjoyed the locations and the characters were very likable. Dec 10, Karen rated it really liked it.

Leigh rated it really liked it. After an intense paranormal series, Nell Stark returns with a sweet journey that is everything you want in a romance -- characters you fall in love with and worry over, and a happy ending. The icing is a wonderful American peek into the U. If you are a sucker for romance -- and I am -- you'll enjoy this tale. Jan 05, Ty rated it really liked it. Well this was kind of delightful. The characters were sweet and interesting and likable. The plot moved well, and the hurdles they faced felt natural to the progression of the story.
This was a nice fairytale romance. Still as Charming as ever in this audiobook version. Nov 28, Joc rated it it was amazing. I didn't think I would be able to suspend my disbelief to read a novel about a fictional British royal family. Not only was my inner skeptic silenced, I also found I was completely invested in the story. Using the royal family was actually a really clever construct. Everyone knows what happened to Princess Diana so one doesn't even have to use any imagination to understand the ramifications of being constantly followed and reported on by the press or paparazzi.
This alone sets up strong tension I didn't think I would be able to suspend my disbelief to read a novel about a fictional British royal family. This alone sets up strong tension from the beginning because you know nothing good can come from it. I liked both main characters - their interactions with each other had both wonderful chemistry and entertaining dialogue.
This is my first novel by Nell Stark and I'm looking forward to reading more of her work. Nice cast of characters and a sweet love story. A very enjoyable read.

Such a silly book I cannot believe it was written in the first place.
I suspect it is for teenagers because only that explain everything. Well, for teenagers i guess it is a good book with average lesbian rep. Maybe it will help some girls to come out to family and friends or accept herself. But if you are not a teenage anymore, your opinion about the book probably will be: silly with one dimensional characters and minor characters that were useless. Kerry is a main character but after she met Sa Such a silly book I cannot believe it was written in the first place. Kerry is a main character but after she met Sasha, she became just a free therapist for her problematic instagirlfriend.
And she has so much potential Sasha is certainly the main character but not well-written. She only got problems with herself and her family. Silly problems. I like it that she was dyslexic, but all the drama. I mean, you are a fucking princess, should I really believe that not ONE single doctor or guard or maid or whatever never told you that you are not stupid? Should I believe that no one ever realizes that you are dyslexic?
Only your savior Kerry Donovan. The plot it exactly what the synopses shows. Not one thrilling plot twist. Stark's prose is The only minor character that is worth some commentary - not to say good things - is King Andrew. An idiot, tyranic that made Sasha's live miserable and in the end his personality completely change for better.
All the problems here are solve in the most easy way ever.

This was a difficult book in several ways I'll just briefly note: closeted people hiding from the public; certain amount of miscommunication issues; etc.
Though I never doubted I'd complete the book. In the end, though, I was able to like it enough to give it four stars. I'm not sure if I can get myself to read another like it, though. For a long while I've been tired of the "straight woman who suddenly realiz This was a difficult book in several ways I'll just briefly note: closeted people hiding from the public; certain amount of miscommunication issues; etc. For a long while I've been tired of the "straight woman who suddenly realizes they are actually a lesbian" theme. That's not in this book, though the Princess isn't "out".
And that's the theme I'm rapidly growing tired of, the "not out" part. In this day and age, the cowering in the closet is something I'm rapidly losing patience with. At least among adult characters who are not over a certain age. There's always a reason, of course. Mostly tied to work. Mostly I see it in acting related books which is, in itself, funny in its way, as the perception has been long presented that the public thinks they are all wild weirdos anyway. Well, this time the reason is "royal highness", i. Okay, I've read that now.
I'll not "punish" this book for having the closeted theme, since I hadn't specifically read this exact storyline before though I've run across princesses with fake images falling for a specific woman, and how that created complications, etc. I lost track of this paragraph. So I'll just conclude it with: I've read this story line now, I won't detract points based on it, but I'll try to steer clear of the theme in the future. I just noticed - the book wandered over Ireland, Scotland, and England; what, a day trip to Wales was too much to ask for? Do you have the courage to take action, even when it might create chaos?
And I'm sure there are already too many of those stories focusing on straight couples, so it's nice to have this one: A queer princess falling for a commoner who's also a woman. I certainly liked it very much. It was well-written, fun, sweet, exciting, highly entertaining, with a bit of the expected drama, and likab "Do I dare disturb the universe? It was well-written, fun, sweet, exciting, highly entertaining, with a bit of the expected drama, and likable and interesting characters to make me enjoy it even more. I've had this book on my list for a very long time now, so I'm happy to have finally read it and discover it didn't disappoint me!

If you find the royal family at all intriguing, if you ever wished you were smart enough to be a Rhodes scholar, if you ever wanted an insider's guide to London night spots and good running paths. This is your book. Really a fun read. I especially liked the way Nell described the intimate scenes between the two characters. As I've read more romance novels I've realized how complicated it is to write intimate sc Finally, a modern twist on the classic tale of the fairy tale princess love story.
As I've read more romance novels I've realized how complicated it is to write intimate scenes that are infused with real passion, while not sounding like an anatomy textbook. The scene with the first kiss was pitch perfect. The chemistry between these two characters in that very first scene was Well done. Mar 17, P. Industry rated it really liked it Shelves: coming-out , politicians-royalty-or-spawn , lesbian , romance , fem-fem. Pure, wish-fulfilling, fluff. And that's not a bad thing - anyone thinking about buying a book with the premise that a Princess falls in love with an ordinary university student pretty much knows both what they want, and what they'll get plot-wise.
So this review is therefore more of a reassurance. The book is written well, and intelligently. Potentially awkward situations are handed with compassion, and there is a minimum of annoying, misplaced angst. It is a rather good example of pure wish-ful Pure, wish-fulfilling, fluff. It is a rather good example of pure wish-fulfilling fluff, coupling the lightness as it does with technically decent writing.
It is a fine way to waste an evening. The Princess, saw the other heroine at a club, she was instantly attracted to her, the same feelings from the other party. It was really lust at the first sight. Anyways, it was just okay for me. Give it a try yourself and I hope that you'll love it. Mar 29, Alena rated it it was ok Shelves: fiction , queer.

But I just had to read this because as a child I was just fascinated with European royalty. In addition, the dialog from the British characters didn't seem particularly BE to me. Whenever I do hear a member of the royal family talk they sound more BE. Mar 25, A. A solid book from Nell Stark but not one of my favourites written by her. I liked that Nell Stark introduced some new elements to an otherwise romance story that could have been redundant.
I'd recommend to read at least once in an afternoon. An enjoyable romance.

The Princess Affair by Nell Stark: Book Review
Kerry and Sasha are delightful. Very human in the frailties, wanting to be better for each other but struggling to overcoming their insecurities and the expectations placed upon them. This is traditional LesFic romance at its best. Hugely entertaining, completely absorbing and keeping the roller-coaster will-she-wont-she suspense throughout. An easy book with great characters and an enjoyable romance, and exactly what I needed after a very angst story. It has that classic intense and instant attraction that I never completely buy, but they acknowledge it instead of creating unnecessary angst and it starts to feel much more genuine the more time they spend together and I really enjoyed seeing their relationship grow and them becoming more comfortable around each other.
