My Fair Princess by Vanessa Kelly 👸🏻
Synopsis from goodreads: “Despite being the illegitimate daughter of a prince, Gillian Dryden is happily ignorant of all social graces. After growing up wild in Italy, Gillian has been ordered home to England to find a suitable husband. And Charles Valentine Penley, the excessively proper, distractingly handsome Duke of Leverton, has agreed to help transform her from a willful tomboy to a blushing debutante.
Powerful and sophisticated, Charles can make or break reputations with a well-placed word. But his new protégée, with her habit of hunting bandits and punching earls, is a walking scandal. The ton is aghast . . . but Charles is thoroughly intrigued. Tasked with taking the hoyden in hand, he longs to take her in his arms instead. Can such an outrageous attraction possibly lead to a fairytale ending?” 👑
I love to read historical romance books but I rarely ever read a historical romance book that I absolutely love and it’s safe to say that I LOVED this book 💖 it was fun, sexy and cute .. Totally what I needed after reading a fantasy book ✨ I love stories where the girl is willing to stand up for what she believes in and she’s a strong character .. Not a dainty weak princess who’s waiting for a guy to save her (there’s nothing wrong with that, I just simply don’t like it) Charles is a Duke that can weaken your knees and steal your breath away. The story is absolutely amazing and I’m definitely going to check out the rest of the author’s work 💪🏼
