The Synopsis:

Burndee can barely tolerate the mischievous Prince Colin, but the two of them are invariably thrown together in a way that keeps them at one another’s throats.

While attending a noblewoman’s wedding, Burndee and Colin’s feud comes to a climax when Burndee loses his temper and does the unthinkable.

Can the two of them work together long enough to unsnarl the mysterious goings on around them?

I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

Other Books by this Author:

The Reluctant Godfather


book coverA Royal Masquerade piggybacks off of the Cinderella retelling, The Reluctant Godfather, with the same characters, however this time, we read a new take on The Goose Girl, a bit of a lesser known fairy tale. This novella can be read as a standalone though I recommend reading both.

Burndee and Prince Colin are easily one of my favorite literary duos! They are so entertaining and I love their silly adventures!

In this story, I felt like both characters really came to life and some parts of their personalities really improved from the first book. I can’t say much about the story for fear of spoilers, but I will say that it is a well done, and unique, retelling of The Goose Girl.

There are only a few mentions of kissing, however the book is completely void of crude and profane language and sexual content. It does have some very mild fight scenes.

Overall, I enjoyed A Royal Masquerade just as much, if not more, than The Reluctant Godfather and certainly recommend both! I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
