The Soldier Prince by Aarti V. Raman

39886209The Soldier Prince…

Alexander ‘Iceman’ Heinrickson was born a prince.

The spare heir to a European principality whose future was set in stone.

Until circumstances forced him to abandon his wealthy lifestyle and royal heritage. He chose to become a soldier.

After years of seeing needless combat, he works construction in New York city. And craves a normal life.

Going back home is not an option for him.

But neither is leaving a brave damsel in danger.

…And The Commoner

Sasha Ray is an aspiring teacher and a soft touch waitress.

Her life is normal. Boring even.

She also has a massive crush on the newest Tall, Blond, and Handsome who frequents the New York deli where she works.

What she doesn’t know about the stranger called Iceman might get her killed. Or worse.

For one, he turns out to be a lethally capable soldier.

For another, he is the secret Prince of Stellangård, who is not used to the word no.

So, when Alexander sweeps her off on a private jet to his castle nestled in the Swiss Alps for her own protection, she has no choice but to go with him.

Falling for a tortured hero like Prince Alexander might be the biggest mistake of her life.

But Sasha knows some mistakes are worth risking your heart for.

With an unknown enemy closing in, Sasha and Alexander need to decide if happily ever after is just a fairy tale. Or can a Prince and a commoner find true love in the middle of danger?

Meet the Royals of Stellangård – Alexander, Helena, and Michael – burdened by their heritage, freed by love, in three standalone novels of romantic suspense and action.

Conclusion:

So there’s a few things about this novel that I loved and a few things that I didn’t enjoy as much.

First, I loved that the female main character was Indian-American. You don’t see that in too many romance novels. So seeing it was pretty awesome. I also loved the cinderella-esque romance. A waitress helps and then falls in love with the Prince. I mean, come on, you can’t get anymore classic fairytale than that. The other thing I absolutely loved was the library. Okay, can you blame me? The descriptions of that castle library sounded like absolute heaven. Sign me up.

The things I didn’t like: The prologue didn’t work very well. When I first read it I was worried I was going to end up dnf’ing this. Which I really didn’t want to do. Thankfully the writing is fantastic after the prologue. Certain aspects of the storyline definitely didn’t interest me. I don’t know if I was just in the mood for fluff and romance, but the whole castle politics, “Hey the Prince needs to do all the stuff” just bored me, to be honest.

That all being said.. this novel was extremely enjoyable to read. May not have been my cup of tea completely, but I know there’s plenty of people out there that would be interested in it!
