Stavos Voronin was not as blind-eyed as many nobles and royals.
Evony’s physical gestures—even the simplest movement of her
hands—revealed that she had not always been destitute. The same was true
of the children—of their polished manners and the boy’s knowledge of
horses and tendency to be bold and fearless of strangers.
Ah yes, Stavos enjoyed a good mystery. After all, interest in the
inexplicable circumstances surrounding the royals of Abawyth was the
very thing that had lured him to the kingdom—the enigma of Abawyth’s
twelve sleepy princesses. And yet now—now his mind was all the more
intrigued. Not only was the obscurity of what had caused the profound
and baffling torpidity of Abawyth’s princesses laid out before him, but
also he found his curiosity intensely piqued over the riddle surrounding
the very lovely Evony and her siblings.
As Stavos strode through the village resting on the outskirts of
Abawyth Castle, his mind reeled with possibilities. His musings were
drawn back to why he had come to Abawyth at all—to solve the conundrum

My Review: *****--5 Stars.
Marcia Lynn McClure is a master at taking a story and putting her personality into it. She has such a delightful way of crafting a story and engaging the reader, not to mention, her kissing scenes are epic (and clean, of course)!!
I love fairy tales and love to read what different author's do to re-tell those beloved stories. This is a great version of the Twelve Dancing Princesses. I love the unique twists and turns and the interpretation.
Prince Stavos is determined to solve the mystery of the twelve sleepy princesses--even though no one else has come close to doing so. I loved how brave Stavos was. He proposed a solution that is risky, yet
he was willing to go through with it in order to help this family out. Evony has secrets of her own, yet she goes out on a limb to trust this handsome stranger. She is so dedicated to her family and loved ones--she'll even put herself into a miserable situation to support them, all while having a good attitude. A fun romance (kissing) is blossoming, while danger lurks and mysteries are solved. Loved it!!
Content: kissing (clean), a couple of mild swear words, a little violence.
