Review " How to love a Princess" by Claire Robyns


Title: How to love a Princess
Author: Claire Robyns


Synopsis: Love exploded into the sheltered life of Princess Catherine de'Ariggo when she met Nicolas Vecca. But duty calls Catherine to sacrifice that love. Now, years later, she must be strong once more. Can she ignore the whisperings of her heart and stand firm in her convictions? Trusting in Nicolas, loving him, is a risk she dare not take.
When Nicolas sees Catherine again, he thinks he's looking at a ghost. Either that, or he has been cruelly deceived. Haunted love turns to hate. But even as he determines to remain unforgiving, his heart refuses to forget.

  
Review: Do you know the feeling when your mind keeps focusing on something and doesn’t let you do anything else? From the moment I read the synopsis of this book, that was what happened to me. Simple for some and common for others, to me, this was a story that brought me back to my teenage years when I was allowed to dream. Since a very young age I’ve become fascinated with the subject of this book. Princes and Princesses, forbidden love, duty above feelings… for so many people all of this is difficult to understand, but for others it is still so real…
This was a story that reminded me of the many books I read on those younger years and that Harlequin keeps publishing nowadays. I see it as a light novel, with a straightforward plot, that anyone could read smoothly. Plus, I find it to be a very well written story, with a lot of care from the author. In my opinion, books don’t necessarily need to have heavy themes to be great or to be impeccably written. For me, even simple stories need care and attention from authors, and I believe Robyns showed, in this book, all that and much more.
Although I liked all the characters, I especially loved Nicolas, who despite having plenty of reasons to abandon Catherine, still fought for what he believed and for who he truly cared about. Many were the times that I wanted to put myself in the middle of them and tell to that spoiled princess who did everything to take her ideas forward a few not so sweet words. Catherine, who at first seemed to be the perfect protagonist suddenly became a person who despite having reasons to act that way, sometimes exaggerated and made took on decisions capable of overcoming a 10 year-old girl, and maybe that was the secret, the reason that made me want to turn the page and follow the story through the end.
With a lot of romance and a bit of mystery, this book was an excellent company for me in these long, cold winter nights.
