OK, you might have a point there. All right, I have a not-at-all-secret passion for royal romances, but a distressingly high proportion of them are not very good. The last one I read (Pretend Princess) was absolutely dire.
The Doctor and the Princess is absolutely FANTASTIC. I loved the premise - a 'spare' princess, not wanting to be a mere ornament, becomes a doctor and goes to work for Doctors Without Borders, but her brother's abdication of the crown suddenly dumps the job of Head of State unexpectedly on her shoulders. Right as she's about to get hot and heavy with another doctor she met while on mission.
Gabrielle and Sullivan are perfect for each other, both dedicated, driven and damaged... Gabrielle by the weight of the burden that has suddenly been dumped on her, Sullivan by the PTSD and depression after the loss of his father he has been sublimating by burying himself in his work.
Making the decision to go with Gabrielle to offer his support as she must take up the reins of her country lands Sullivan in a situation with too much time to think. He has to take care of his own demons before he can be the true partner Gabrielle needs.
There was so much to like about this book, from the charming, realistically written characters to the unflinchingly honest, medically accurate way the author addressed Sullivan's mental health issues. There was a particularly moving scene where Gabrielle abandoned a state dinner to help him when he had a panic attack; would that everyone who suffered from those kind of issues had someone as loving and capable to help them through it!
The Doctor and the Princess is an absolutely delightful romance and if you, like me, have a not-very-secret passion for royal romances, I heartily recommend it as one of the best I've ever read. Five well-deserved stars, and put Scarlet Wilson on your list as an author to watch in the future!
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
Gabrielle Cartier was a doctor and she wanted to remain one. She didn’t want her other life to intrude. Yet her brother abdicated and she had to go and become the ruler of a state and resume her duties as a princess.
Sullivan Darcy had been attracted to her and they were about to explore their attraction with each other when he found out that Gabrielle was a princess. He was astounded when he found out but he wanted to support her so he went with her. But would their chemistry and attraction withstand her hectic schedule in the royal palace? As head of a state, her time was divided. Would Sullivan take kindly to being left alone all the time?
THE DOCTOR AND THE PRINCESS is an emotional read. I loved this romance and the emotions tugs at your heart. A reader would stay hooked to this story till the last page as the setting alone keeps you engrossed.
Highly recommended for all readers of medical readers.
Not even sure if its a good summery but I'm just going to go with it. I really liked this book, I thought it was interesting seeing how Gabrielle dealt with what was handed to her and seeing her take on the role. It was interesting seeing Sullivan dealing with his own set of issues and how they worked on things together. I loved that Gabrielle was not a person to stand to the side when she was given a role she did her best at what she does. You know what I don't think I can tell you more about what I liked about this book without giving it away. I just loved the balance between these two who are nothing alike and managed to find a way to work together. Overall this was a pretty good book, I really enjoyed it.
