"Storming the Castle" by Eloisa James

Title: Storming the Castle

Series: Fairy Tales #1.5

Author: Eloisa James

(read on March 13th, 2012)

My rating: 4 of 5

Not every fairy tale begins with a prince or a princess…

When Miss Philippa Damson runs away from home to Pomeroy Castle, she is far from a princess…she’s an extraordinary beauty with ordinary dreams — to live a quiet life as a nursemaid.

Jonas Berwick
, rakish son of a grand duke, has vowed never to wed.

He offers Philippa everything—but his hand in marriage.

Philippa has stormed the castle, but now she faces an impossible Challenge: To win the love of a prince, she may have to risk everything that makes her a lady.

Will the sacrifice of her honor be too high a price to pay?

My Thoughts on the Book:

This fun novella is connected to the first book in the series A Kiss at Midnight. I love the fact that Eloisa James gave Wick his own Happily Ever After, because he was one of my fav characters in that book. Anyway, I really liked Philippa. From the second we meet her, she made me laugh so much, so she was really fun character who decided to stood up for herself & take matters in her own hands. Their romance was so sweet & I enjoyed reading it. Of course we meet Kate & Gabe again & the unforgettable Princess Sophonisba - so funny, I think that was my fav scene. Anyway, nice addition to a great series :)
