She almost experienced it at the tender age of eighteen, when she and her servant Chelsey, engaged in a smoldering love affair for one brief summer before they were both separated forever. Eight years later, Daisy is now engaged to a man who wants to offer her the world. But Daisy still longs for the woman she has never forgotten...
The dastardly lady pirate C.W. Dread, lives for revenge against Lord Humphrey, the man who murdered her family. She will kidnap Humphrey's fiancée, hold her for ransom, and introduce her to the delights of the flesh. Then her revenge will be complete! But Dread is in for a shock when her prisoner is a blast from her past who she once adored deep down to her very core...
Danger, adventure and passion are only a few things in store for this lady pirate and her princess as they succumb to a lust for one another that can no longer be denied or contained...
"Ah, I see you have finally awakened." The masked woman smiled, taking a step toward the bed.
Daisy held up a hand and lifted her face bravely, speaking the first thing that came into her mind. "You… you have stolen my precious jewels!"
The woman shrugged with indifference. "Perhaps I have. So what?"
Daisy's mouth dropped in dismay. "Do you realize how expensive- oh, what is wrong with me! Of course you don't care one bit what I think. You enjoy pillaging priceless jewelry and other trinkets for you own selfish gains. I am just one of your many victims."
The masked woman with the smirk took another step forward.
"S-stop right there, you scoundrel!" Daisy screeched.
"And what if I don't?"
Daisy's finger shook as she pointed. "I will scream."
Daisy flinched as the woman let out a husky laugh. "Go ahead, princess. We are miles out at sea, as you can tell. It's only me and my boys here. And they are used to hearing a woman's screaming coming from my cabin."
Daisy pressed a palm against her chest and frowned. "You apparently know me."
She gave Daisy a wide smile. "Oh yes, Princess Daisy. I know you very, very well."
"But how…" Daisy's eyes roamed over the woman standing only a few feet away from her, taking in her dark boots, the tight fit of her breeches and the jagged scar and black mask covering her eyes and head.
And suddenly Daisy knew who stood before her.
"You're her… the nasty lady pirate Dread all the papers talk about." Daisy sat up on her knees and looked at Dread in both awe and trepidation.
Happily Ever After Reviews
I have been waiting to read “The Princess’s Bride” since I saw the cover on Ms. Grant’s website after my review of “Lovestruck.” It was well worth the wait and I was definitely not disappointed. Much like her other novellas, “The Princess’s Bride” left me with a dozen conflicting emotions. I was pissed off at Chelsey, wishing Daisy would grow up, and secretly plotting Lord Humphrey’s death.
The characters are realistic, deeply flawed, and full of life. Ms. Grant writes as if they could walk in the door any minute and sweep you off your feet. The relationship between the women seems very dominant / submissive at first, but it morphs slowly into more of a partnership. It was good to see Daisy find her backbone in the face of adversity.
Though the story was loosely based on “The Princess Bride,” Ms. Grant’s style rings true. Once the story gets going, there is no stopping it – you will be hooked. And the setting is expertly crafted with imagery that left me in awe.
Looking for some action? The fight scenes are creative and consistent. As always, the love scenes are scorching hot. This author truly writes the best f/f romance that I have ever encountered.
The only thing that put me off was the prologue. I’m not a big fan of those and like to jump right into the action, figuring out what has happened as I go. The first part of it fit into the story a little funny and I think honestly could have been left off altogether.
Overall, “The Princess’s Bride” was a great read for those who are interested in some hot f/f romance. If she keeps this up, Ms. Grant is going to have another reader for life!
Got Erotic Romance
Anyone who says a princess the housekeeper’s daughter can’t be together haven’t met Chelsey and Daisy. Although they come from different worlds, these two share a heart. But when Daisy’s daddy, the exiled king, finds out, he drives Chelsey away, and the two are separated by years and oceans. Which changes the equation to: can a princess and a pirate be together?
I enjoyed this story. K.T. Grant’s characters are likeable people, who I would love to know. Their devotion to each other under circumstances which are difficult at the very least, is charming, and the reader will feel their pain when they are separated. The villain, who I shall allow the reader to meet for herself, is a very bad person, and the backdrop of kingdoms and pirate ships will makes for a fun read. The reader will root for these women to find a way to be together, against all odds.
Writings of a Wicked Book Addict
Daisy is the ultra feminine, rich chick who secretly falls hard for her maids older daughter, Chelsey. Chelsey also has feelings for Daisy, feelings one day she acts on. When Daisy’s father catches them in the act, he fires Chelsey’s mother. Chelsey promises she’ll come back for Daisy, but as the years pass, she never does.
Daisy ends up becoming engaged to Lord Humphrey, a man who may not want Daisy for her love. Then on the night of their engagement party, Daisy is kidnapped by the pirate C.W. Dread, little do both of them know their lives are about to come full circle.
Lesbian Pirates Oh My! Yeah, you knew I was going there.
The Princess’s Bride is not something I would normally read, but I’ve read Ms. Grant’s writing before & to be honest I was intrigued. I’ve never really got into the Pirates hype & suffice to say, I’ve only read one lesbian romance in my reviewing days. So I took this as sort of a personal challenge.
Leave it to Ms. Grant to make me like bad ass female pirates & actually enjoy the romance between Daisy & Chelsey. I love the way Ms. Grant tells a story, it sucks you in & spits you out at the end leaving you with a “whoa, did I spend the whole morning reading that?”
I wasn’t a big fan of Daisy, she’s just too girly girl for me, but I loved Chelsey! She’s kick ass, doesn’t take names & storms peoples ships like they owe her money! The combo of the two are a perfect relationship, you know Chelsey would do anything to protect Daisy.
And there’s action people! No not “that” kinda action, well there is “that” kinda action to but..damnit. There’s action, trust me.
A great read & not too intimidating for those of you who haven’t read a lesbian romance before.
