Review & Giveaway:Courted by Jennifer Chance

Fans of Meg Cabot's Princess Diaries 
will enjoy COURTED,
a New Adult Contemporary Romance 

with a modern royals flair,
about a young woman about to give up on her dreams … and the prince whose dreams she could help make come true.
Aspiring concert violist Emmaline Aurora Grace Andrews is torn between her love of family and her love of music. A year ago, she deferred entering a prestigious graduate program to help her parents recover from a devastating accident. Now the deferment is expiring, but her parents still need her. Worse, every time she plays her audition piece, she mangles it. Is it too late to be the musician she'd always dreamed of? Should she even try?

Determined to get clarity, Emmaline accepts a friend's offer for a whirlwind European vacation. First Stop: a real live fantasy kingdom—the perfect place to sort wishes from reality.

Prince Kristos Andris was a respected captain in his nation’s military… Was. In the wake of the tragic death of his elder brother, he's managed to avoid his duties as the new Crown Prince of Garronia for months. But now he must accept his responsibilities and leave his troops behind. Outraged at the restrictions of his new royal position, he'll do anything for one last adventure. So when opportunity suddenly lands in his arms in the form of a dreamy-eyed American girl, he embraces it (and her) for all he's worth. What's the harm in a quick fling, after all? It won’t change what he knows he must do…

Only this is Garronia in the summertime, where passion has a way of ruining even the most sensible of plans.

What I thought about Courted

Emmaline is vacationing with her girlfriends, taking a break from some serious real life issues when she's saved twice on the beach by a gorgeous man she finds out is the crown prince of Garronia.  He's smitten and so is she but when the press gets wind of what is going on, they need a safe place to get to know each other better,and they flee to the country.

Upon returning to Garronia, the media gets crazier and it appears as if their few days together are coming to a close. But destiny has a different fate for Em and Kristos, and well, it's a fairy tale come true.

I was attracted to this book because I really wanted something sweet and romantic, and this fit what I was looking for.  The scenes with Em and Kristos together are the best scenes in the book, and even though there's nothing terribly original in Courted, it was a well-written, fun read.
