I was intrigued by this book's description when I first read it. After all, it's a modern-day fairy tale with a reluctant princess and a handsome prince. It's an unusual story with the fairy tale twist and modern day trappings. But I liked it immediately.
The story here is an interesting one with twists and turns that I didn't always expect. The character development was a little slow in coming, so there were parts that seemed a little stilted and forced. But there was always enough to keep me reading, and I ended up glad that I did.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Jessabelle Keller would happily spend her entire life in obscurity, but her father once saved the life of a future king. Before he dies, her father is committed to seeing that king make good on his promise to have one of his sons marry her so she would be taken care of for life.
No sooner than Prince Malachi and Jessabelle return from their honeymoon, they find themselves dealing with both private trauma and the very public drama of groundless accusations from the press. Just as they begin to weave their fragile trust back together, a ghost from the king’s past arrives and threatens everything they’ve ever held dear.
Secrets have a funny way of coming out and this one could rip the faith of the country in their leaders to shreds. Malachi is determined to protect Jessabelle no matter what it takes, but will it ever be enough for her to not feel like a Hand-Me-Down Princess?
