Blog Tour - Miss Burton Unmasks a Prince Review and Giveaway



About the book: Southern belle Meg Burton is her parents' last hope of avoiding financial ruin, and a distant cousin's kind gesture seems an ideal solution: He will sponsor Meg for a London Season. The pursuit of a wealthy husband was not exactly how the bookish young woman had envisioned her first trip abroad—after all, what does a girl from Charleston, south Carolina, know about being a lady? Amidst the stunning gowns and extravagant balls of the ton, Meg feels like an imposter. Thankfully, she has one friend who knows her true self—Carlo, a handsome stable hand. Despite their difference in station, love blossoms between the unlikely pair, and Meg is sure of one thing: She wants nothing to do with the insufferable European aristocracy.
Prince Rodrigo de Talavera has lost everything to Napoleon. Jaded by war, he has become bitter and miserable—until he meets Meg, an American woman whose eccentric schemes and passion for life remind him what it is to laugh and to love. If only she knew him for himself and not as Carlo the stable hand. With the shadow of deception looming over their happy acquaintance and the dangers of war drawing ever more near, can Meg and Rodrigo find the courage to put aside their pretenses and discover if they can be loved as they truly are?

My review: I have to say that anytime you are reading a historical romance, or romance of any kind really, that makes you giggle right out loud that is a good thing! That's what this book did for me. I loved everything about this book. I loved Meg, she's a southern girl transported to England about to experience her first season there. She is spunky and looking for high adventure, which sometimes causes her to have situations that are a little bit crazy. I loved Carlo and how he really worked to try to manufacture adventurous situations for Meg to enjoy in the boring castle of his sister and her husband. 

The plot is really well written and just plain fun. I love how the reader knows what's up with Carlo but Meg doesn't have the slightest idea that he's really the prince. Meg's reaction when he reveals himself was one of my favorite parts of the book. I'm not going to tell you what happens, you'll have to go read it for yourself! And the ending was awesome. I'm really hoping that Jennifer is planning to do some spin off stories from this one. I really would love to know what happens to Meg, Rodrigo, Daniel, and Serena.

Part of the fun with this book is the mask contest that Covenant Communications was running. Jennifer Moore brought me a fun mask, and I said I'd post a picture of it here, so here you go! 



I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
