Book Summary:

Prince Nolan has had enough of Princess Blythe—the woman to whom he has been betrothed since infancy—and her simpering letters. Does the princess truly not have a brain in her head? Never before has he communicated with someone who seemed so childish and spoiled. It was time he met her for himself, to decide if he could actually follow through with this marriage. But to do it right, she must not see how handsome he is. He needs a disguise—something that would show him her true nature.

Nolan asks an old herb woman to transform him into a creature that is disgusting to any female—a frog. The spell will last thirty days unless the princess does the impossible and kisses him. Now the true test begins. Will Blythe prove to be as monstrously annoying as he believes she is, or will he learn to see past his judgments and find a loving princess waiting for him?

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a fun, short read. The characters really drew me into the story. The ending seemed too protracted. It was a five-star book before the last chapter. But I still really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading other books in this series.

  1. I really like fairy tales retold but it seams that Jenni James really shakes up the story line. I am definitely going to check this series out.

  2. Such a pretty cover, I love it!

  3. I think I’ve got that somewhere on my PC, too, in my ever growing eBook TBR-Pile.
    Have to put it on my reader before it gets completly lost now. 🙂

    And totally agree with the above comment, the cover is beautiful!
