Review & Giveaway: A Princess is Always Right by Stephanie Burkhart

A Princess is Always Right
by Stephanie Burkhart


GENRE: Steampunk Romance



Sophia may be the youngest Windsor, but she knows her mind. A Princess of York, she's committed to do her duty – prevent Jonas Byron from finding Nikola Tesla and decimating the time line.

Jax Ruston is a rugged metalsmith with curly hair and dimples to die for. A resident of 1855, he's pledged to help Sophia find Jonas. Together, they journey across continental Europe in pursuit of Jonas.

Despite her duty, Sophia's attracted to handsome Jax. However, he's committed to living in 1855. Can Sophia keep her focus on her mission, or will desire interfere with her task? Only one thing is certain: a princess is always right.


My Review:

Finally another adventure of the cousins Windsor and their time travel. The protagonist of this episode is Sophia, the youngest of Windsor, she has the delicate task of going back in time to stop Jonas Byron and prevent him from modifying their future. To do this she have to pass through the whole Europe.
It was really fun and exciting traveling in the Europe of 1855. Another compelling aspect of this novel is the troubled love story between Sophia and Jax with the third wheel of Ian, a sweet five year old child. I really like this couple, a princess and a blacksmith. Sophia is sweet, gentle but also adventurous and brave, a real Windsor. Jax is a good guy, smart and very in love with Sophia although it is difficult for him to admit it.
This is the fourth book in the series "The Windsor Diaries", for easier and pleasant reading I advice to read the series in sequence, although there are many references to previous episodes that is fine as a stand alone
It 's a sci-fi fantasy with so much adventure and romance, will captivate you from the first page.

If you want to make an adventurous journey in the Europe of the mid nineteenth century this is the perfect book.



"Gus? Lord Ridgecroft? Are you here?"

"I seemed to have crushed a bed of dahlias. I'll be all right, Miss Windsor."

Sophia drew in a deep, calming breath, as a strong sense of responsibility settled over her. She had a mission -- find Jonas Byron and prevent him from interfering with Nikola Tesla's life. It sounded easy, but Jonas had a head start and depending on when she landed, she might be days behind him.

"Oww!" Gus' shrill cry pierced the night air.

"Lord Ridgecroft!" Jax rushed to the spot where his cry of distress originated. Sophia scrambled to her feet, unsure of her surroundings, though she believed they landed in the spot they had left from -- the garden behind the Ridgecroft townhouse in London.

The stars provided little light. Kerosene lamps from the street cast long murky shadows over the garden walls.

"Ow! Ow! Ow!" Gus cried.

Jax reached him. "His hand is caught in some type of trap."

Sophia frowned. Augustus "Gus" Darling had been thrust into the role of a nobleman when his uncle, Douglas Dunkirk, passed away. She really should remember to address him as such.

Slowly, she inched toward Jax and Lord Ridgecroft's shadows.

A door slammed. "Who's out there?"

She recognized the voice of Jeeves, the Ridgecroft's butler. Her shoulders relaxed a little.

"It's Sophia Windsor! Lord Ridgecroft appears hurt."
