Princess On The Run is an enemies-to-lovers, road trip romance that captured my attention on the first page. Princess Louisa, or “Isa,” is on the run looking for her brother. Samuel, Lord Ranleigh bumps into Isa and offers her his aid. Isa lies about who she is. When the trip gets complicated by chaperones, drivers, and men trying to kill them, the couple slowly learns to trust each other. Through this harrowing journey, Sam and Isa fall for each other, but can a relationship based on lies last?
I had a hard time warming to Isa at first. I know she is a princess, and that is the reason for her rude, arrogant behavior. It was her total disregard for the danger she put everyone in that made her difficult to like. She does get better with help from her traveling companions to the point where she shows empathy. Sam loves to have fun. Sam becomes more responsible, and he has a good heart and limitless patience with Isa. It took time for the couple to warm up to each other. I felt it was slightly sudden when the feeling started to develop. I did like Sam and Isa together; they complimented each other well.
Princess On The Run is the second book in the Royals & Rebels series. Both books in the series end with cliffhangers; I am not usually a fan of cliffhangers, but I liked these. Each story stops at the same point in time. We see the plot from different points of view in each book. I felt this device worked well and gave the reader a well-rounded view of the story. The plot moved well and was entertaining. There was a lot of action and intrigue. Princess On The Run was a fun read, and I look forward to the next book.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
