Romanian unification is on the horizon and the spirited Crown Princess of Carpathia, Caroline, would prefer to ride horses and archery to embroidery and dancing. Complicating her life is her recent discovery that she's a witch.
Prince Stefan Sigmaringen travels to Carpathia to meet Caroline. He discovers he has much in common with her. He also learns that a strange man, Timon, has an unnatural interest in him.
Upon Stefan's engagement, he overhears his mother confessing to a horrible secret – she cursed him in order to conceive him and Stefan will become a werewolf when he turns eighteen. There is a condition to overcome the curse, but it will require Stefan to draw on all his inner strength and Caroline, her courage. Can they break the foul enchantment and secure their future or will Stefan give himself over to the lupine curse that haunts his family?
I have read the other two books in this series and I was really anxious to read this too and was not been disappointed at all.
Caroline loves the outdoor life, is a very good rider and the best archer in the kingdom. But she is the crown princess of Carpathia and her mother wants her to know how to dance and embroidery and has ways much more elegant and refined. She is betrothed to Stefan, the crown prince of Moldova and is determined to adhere to her duty even if doesn't know at all the guy. But she will not remain disappointed.
I loved Stefan and Caroline since their first meeting, the chemistry between them is very strong and magical. Caroline is stubborn and wild but can also be sweet and generous. Stefan is polite and friendly, a perfect king. Together they will try to learn to use the magical powers that they found they had.
It's an easy and fast reading but very pleasant and engaging, romantic, passionate but with a touch of humor and adventure.
Highly recommended for those who want to read a paranormal romance different form usual.
Stefan stepped into the grand room and came face-to-face with the Carpathian royal family.
"King Mircea, Queen Aurora, and their children, Crown Princess Caroline and Princess Helena, welcome you to Carpathia."
Stefan took one look at Caroline, and his heart rate accelerated. She was Aurora -- the beautiful outdoorswoman he'd met only hours earlier. She had used her mother's name.
Her cheeks colored fiercely, and satisfaction filled him. Even from this distance, he could feel the same magnetic heat from her he had in the forest.
How different she looked -- how regal. The dress accentuated her curves and made her look decidedly feminine, yet despite her outward beauty, her eyes betrayed not only surprise, but also unease.
Queen Aurora nudged her. "Caroline."
She stepped forward, along with her sister, and both curtsied. Stefan bowed.
King Mircea spoke up. "We hope your travel to
went well." Ploiesti
"It was a delight to travel by rail," Stefan's father replied.
"Come. Dinner is served." Mircea gestured toward the table along the wall. Caroline stood tall next to her father, a spark of pride in her eyes. Stefan quickly assessed her parents and determined she was a unique blend of both, though she slightly favored her father. They shared the same thick chestnut-brown hair.
"Your Highness, Princess Caroline, I have something that might be yours," Stefan said. She raised an eyebrow.
He reached into his pocket and pulled out her scarf. He'd had the dirt and grime removed so the golden parts of the embroidery glistened in the light from the chandelier.
