A marriage for the monarch
One last New York night with Sofia Ramirez is all Prince Nikandros Constantinides allowed himself before returning to Akathinia, after a dreadful accident took his brother's life. But before the royal rebel is crowned, Nik discovers that he didn't leave Sofia behind alone!
In a baby's heartbeat, Nik turns Sofia's world upside down and whisks her away to his Mediterranean kingdom. Dissolving a politically perfect engagement is not what Nik — or his country — had in mind, but this proud prince will do whatever it takes to legitimise his new rule…with a wife and child!
As predictable as you can get.
You know you've stepped waist deep in the low-tier romance when the only warm squishy feelings you get is when you finish the book & know you will never ever have to read it ever again.
Since I've seen a plethora of high ratings for this book on various sites I thought this was a sure thing, I guess the author has a large fan base because this was just predictable & boring, it was hard to finish.
If you’ve read a story about a royal knocking up a commoner, the drama around that, then the happy ending, then you know this book. Carrying the King’s pride is more or less the equivalent of a churn & burn book in it's writing and quality. Whether people want to overlook it or not is up to the individual, but I believe it fails at the fundamentals for writing a good story. Instead of taking the time to write a new spin on an old story this book is as predictable as it comes.
If there's an audience out there for this, despite what little value I could find in it, so be it. But if you do read these sorts of books because you like those exciting lovey-dovey heartthrob feelings that they can produce then skip this one because it’s just so bland and one of those stories you’ve read a hundred times before.
