Product Description

To the beat of war, crowns are kept and stolen. . .

1768, Philippines

Spanish Captain Raúl Calderón has accepted a daring mission in the Philippine colonies – to negotiate docking rights in hostile waters for the Manila Galleon. If successful, he can return from exile to be with those he loves. But when he is captured by slave raiders and delivered to the Last Princess, a woman known for killing those who cross her, he is thrust into the center of royal intrigue. The Last Princess is not what she seems, however, and Raúl must stay alive long enough to warn her of the danger in trusting those close to her.

Juliza Alimuddin, The Last Princess, hides behind a cutthroat reputation to protect her beloved islands. But when a mysterious Spaniard, Raúl Calderón, falls into her hands, she decides to go against her allies’ wishes and nurse him back to health. Her heart has been bruised in the past, yet Raúl brings out feelings she never thought she’d have again. Just when Juliza starts to believe in the possibility of love, however, she is betrayed and her family and sultanate put in a deadly situation. Will The Last Princess live up to her reputation when forced to choose between her people and the man she loves?

A clean historical romance from award-winning journalist and author Jewel Allen. Fans of swashbuckling tales will enjoy this action-packed novel, filled with romance, danger and intrigue of 1760s Philippines. Based on true historical events, this is Book Two of the Islands of the Crown series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved The Spanish Exile by this author but the Last ... 25 July 2017
By Amber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved The Spanish Exile by this author but the Last Princess omg its absolutely amazing and keeps you on your toes at all times.

I just couldn't put this down. I fell absolutely in love with the Princess, she is such an amazing character and a great match for Raul instead of the obnoxious Conchita who is all about herself.

Both Raul and Juliza have gone through a massive heartbreak, but they are still trying to do their job and what is right while healing their heart.

Juliza is this beautiful exotic Princess that saves his life and nurses him back to health which causes a crazy war between her clans because of the Spanish being so hates on the islands. But no matter she still saves Raul from a horrible fate from her lover killing him or worse.

They form an amazing friendship and he saves her and her family from the other clans attack on their palace. They deal with pirates trying to sell them as slaves, shipwrecks, and a full on war against her family.

Just love it. This author definitely outdid herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Historical Romance with Incredible Detail! 6 May 2017
By Kira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is my first book by Jewel Allen, but I love the level of detail and care she goes into her book. I could see everything she was describing as if it was right in front of me.

I haven't read The Spanish Exile (Islands of the Crown Book 1) yet, where I guess Spanish Captain Raúl Calderón is first introduced, but I don't think that hindered my enjoyment of reading the Last Princess. I really like Juliza's character as I felt she was a strong heroine and it is always refreshing seeing a woman be able to hold her own in these types of stories. I also have a soft spot for historical romances and I think Jewel Allen had that level of detail that just made everything in this story fit together so well. Overall, a wonderful read!

I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s.

Title: The Last Princess
Author: Jewel Allen
Genre: Romance/Historical
Rating: ****
Review: Despite not reading the first book in this series I was still very excited to read the Last Princess. The prologue to this book was brilliant we meet Juliza who is Gurian’s princess currently on her first hunt with her people. We also meet Koda Juliza's lover she hopes to marry after she is crowned and can change the laws. But when Koda had to leave on a two year exposition she calls off their romance only to regret it the moment he leaves. We then up forward two years, where we meet Raúl as he arrived in Spain’s Philippine colony. Raúl is there to negotiate docking rights for Gurian on behalf of the King of Spain but I'd denied because it is impossible. Gurian is the last sultanate resisting an alliance with Spain and any party that has sailed into their waters has never been seen again. Rather than scaring Raúl it fascinated him and he wants to know more especially about the Last Princess and what her weaknesses are.
As we approach the 1/4 mark in the novel Raúl meets Victor who can find him a sailor willing to take him to Gurian. We learn that Raúl is running from the same thing as Juliza; a broken heart and both have skewed themselves to be cold towards anyone seeking courtship but something about her is compelling Raúl to travel to her lands. After some work Raúl manages to get a boat that will carry him to Gurian courtesy of his new friend Victor. I loved the changing location between Manila and Gurian. When we return to Juliza's point of view we learn that Koda never returned leaving the princess jaded and bitter. As Raúl sails to Gurian we see him procure an unusual gift for the princess in the hope of gaining an audience with her.
As we cross the 1/4 mark in the novel we see Raúl and Pitoy encounter some trouble as they approach Gurian. The next thing we see is Juliza's coronation where both Raúl and Koda are present. We see Raúl take an interest in Juliza but we don't see how he came to know about Koda's past relationship with the princess and this would have been nice to see but we do have the foundations of a romantic interest between the two protagonists. We see Koda present himself as a suitor for Juliza and presents Raúl as his gift to her. Juliza rejects his suitor offer but tends to Raúl`s wounds rather than sending him back or killing him.
As we approach the half way mark in the novel we see Juliza get to know Raúl, she also reacquainted herself with Koda setting up a love triangle which I don't normally like but I was willing to give this one a go. Just as they agree to marry Juliza realises the Koda that returned wasn't the Koda she fell in love with and he is ultimately arrested for orchestrating a rebellion against the sultan because they want to trade with the Spanish. As Raúl and Juliza learn more about each other they grow to be friends even despite the slight language barrier between them. Eventually Juliza is faced with a choice between her love Koda and her family and her choice will change her future forever. As we cross into the second half of the novel we see someone within the palace repeatedly attack Raúl and Juliza possibly in an attempt to kill them. Raúl also tried to befriend the sultan who isn't easily convinced but I have a feeling he will come round with time.
As we approach the 3/4 mark in the novel we see how Raúl makes Juliza a target by being close to her and eventually he has to leave the island although he doesn't want to and Juliza doesn't want him to leave either. During his time away from Juliza Raúl learns about the surrounding cultures to her island although Pitoy makes it painfully obviously that both Raúl and Juliza have feelings for each other and this is the first time Raúl it aloud. As we cross into the final section of the novel we see Raúl return and help the royal family flee before the rebellion arrives. Juliza has been ripped away from everything she knows and loves and now along with the other royals have to put their trust in the Spaniard. We see the group faced more trails including sharks, an deserted island and being used as slave before they are offered an escape. We also finally see Juliza and Raúl confess their live for one another and everything that has happened has only brought them closer together. The ending of this book was good but it was a little disappointing I was just expecting a little more from it.
Overall I found this to be very enjoyable and I actually finished it which is rare as I usually end up DNFing historical fiction books. I highly recommend it to prior who struggle reading historical fiction out are looking to break into the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written historical fiction! 13 July 2017
By busy mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This second book in the series finds Raul Calderon exiled to the Philippines. He delivers a letter from King Carlos of Spain to the governor in Manilla. Raul’s return to Spain depends upon the success of the mission the King sent him on. The governor refuses to help Raul saying to do as the king asks would be like “sending a man into hell”. I loved the strong woman Princess Juliza was! The book was well written with likable characters. The descriptions of the beauties of the Philippines transported me there mentally and were beautifully written. I look forward to the next book in the series!
