”Winning means prestige, honor… and me”
Overall Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4/5
Thirty Knights. Five Events. One Determined Princess.
In order to avoid a loveless arranged marriage to a man she cannot stand, eighteen-year-old Princess Pippa of Lauramore makes a bold move: she begs her father to hold a marriage tournament.
Knights travel from far and wide for a chance to win the princess’s hand, but she immediately sets her sights on one—Galinor of Glendon. He’s strong. He’s handsome. He’s a girl’s dream come true.
But as the events progress, Pippa learns her valiant knight is prettier than he is capable. Left with no other choice, the princess enlists the help of the one man with the power to shatter the fragile balance of the tournament—a man she should keep at arm’s length.
A man who calls her like a moth to a flame.
Pippa knows she plays a dangerous game, but when the stakes are this high, she’s not sure if she can afford to walk away…
Set in a rich fantasy world, Pippa of Lauramore is a take-your-breath-away fairy tale romance with unforgettable characters, humor, and heart.
Who doesn’t love knight stories, a tournament, dragons, and an arranged marriage? Ok, the last one maybe not. It’s been sooo difficult for me to find CLEAN interesting books that tackle romance without the steamy scenes and all that ”extra” stuff. Pippa of Lauramore has been such a refreshing, fun, and easy read filled with adventure, romance, and spunk (hehe). This is definitely a romantic book, so if you don’t like a book revolving around that subject, this book is probably not for you (or maybe it is… won’t know until you give it a try 😜)
The main character, Pippa, is quite the free-spirited princess. Even though her childishness and silliness were a little annoying, it ended up being the reason why I loved her so much. I know, I know, people hate excessively childish characters, but I really liked how the author portrayed her naiveness as a stage instead of a fixed personality trait. In some ways I felt her because she was in the middle ground… one day splashing and swimming in caves and the next second watching a tournament unfold that would determine with whom she would spend the rest of her life. EEK! If you put it that way…
I loved the overall tournament and how things unfolded between Pippa and the knights. There was a moment when I wanted her just to make them (or almost all) her brothers 😂. The personalities between the knights were refreshing and made them look all like brothers. I would love to talk more about a particular guy (hehe), but it would be kind of a spoiler, so *Zips mouth*. This story is definitely a love triangle story, just a heads up for those that don’t like that. That’s another thing, I usually HATE love triangles, but this story was very well done. I enjoyed it very much! So, go grab a copy of this wonderful book and submerge in a world of knights, dragons, tournaments, love, and….. faeries? *mischievously grins*
