The second novel in New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins’s sparkling Duchess Diaries series features a young woman desperate for a wealthy marriage, a prince who pretends to be poor, and a meddling godmother.A PRINCE IN WOLF’S CLOTHING SETS HIS SIGHTS ON AN INDEPENDENT SCOTTISH LASS IN THIS SPARKLING ROMANCE FROM BESTSELLING AUTHOR KAREN HAWKINS. An innocent lost in the woods . . . The sensible solution to her family’s dire financial woes is for Lily Balfour to marry the Earl of Huntley, a wealthy widower handpicked by her matchmaking godmother, the Duchess of Roxburghe. Huntley is pleasant and attractive, the perfect candidate in every way. But Lily knows she’s in big trouble as soon as passionate, unprincipled Prince Wulfinski sweeps a hot, possessive glance over her. Powerful and sexy, Wulfinski declares he will make her his—no matter the cost. By his own account, Wulf is a pauper, barely able to afford his own cottage. Yet nothing will stop him from pursuing the elusive beauty with every cunning trick he can muster. But which is more important: power and money . . . or love everlasting? To make the right choice, both Wulf and Lily must trust their hearts, not just their heads, to lead them to the happiness they desire.
  • This is the second book in the trilogy of the Duchess Diaries and it focuses on the middle sister named Lily. She must make a good match to get her father out of debt. The story is predictable from the get go, which is the reason for my giving it 4, instead of 5 stars. Lily believes that the Earl of Huntley will solve her families financial problems, even though she is torn because of her growing feelings for the Prince, whom she met after falling from her horse. She doesn't love Huntley, but tries to convince herself that all will be okay since she will clear her father's debts. She will try to make him a good wife..blah..blah..blah, basically be a martyr and sacrifice her own happiness.

    The prince is wealthy and could help in this matter but he chooses not to share this with Lily because he wants her to fall in love with him for himself and not his money. He is a romantic, like his father. His father taught him the importance of a love match. His grandmother, Tata, adds humor to this story with her trying to cast spells and wreck havoc.

    Then we have the Duchess of Roxburghe,who narrates this story with her opening passages in each chapter. She plots events along with her cohort, Lady Charlotte. Adding to the excitment we have a bunch of pugs running around creating humor to the story. The Duchess pretends that she isn't matchmaking when she is always plotting and confiding in Charlotte but she does so in such an adorable way that one can't help but laugh at her antics.

    The Duchess of Roxburghe is the Godmother to Rose, the eldest sister from the last book, How to Capture a Countess. She is also Lily's and her younger sister Dahlia's Godmother. She wants to see them all happily married. She accomplished that with Rose in the last book.

    The best part of the story took place after reading the first 300 pages. That is when the story really moved along.

    The fact that the Prince captured his Princess after his long pursuit made it feel like Cinderella being carried away to the castle.

    Looking forward to Dahlia's story next...How to Entice an Enchantress.

  • I always enjoy Karen Hawkins books, but I couldn't get totally swept up in this story. The only thing standing in the way of this happily ever after was a silly lie. I understood it being put in place early on in the story, but honestly, based on the characters, it should have been cleared up half way through instead of dragged out to the end. Both hero and heroine were open books. Yes, he wants a woman that will love him for himself, not his money. But once it became clear (and it did become clear within the first few pages of their meeting) that she was willing to sacrifice her happiness to save her family from their money woes, there needed to be a different path taken with this plot. Perhaps as the story progressed he should have just sent the funds anonymously to her family to take care of the debt. Then she could have chosen her heart freely. I know that doesn't make for a long book but some other issue could have been introduced. It just wasn't a plausible roadblock to this relationship to last an entire book and made the read a bit frustrating for me. There was no real character growth needed to overcome this issue.

    Some of the main characters actions were also out of line with what Ms Hawkins had developed. That by the end of the story the prince would still rather let her go to another man than just tell her he lied and could help her family made no sense. The ending of the story also seemed really out of character for the heroine. She should have been spitting mad that he put her through 3 weeks of turmoil. He knew at the end of week 1 that she wanted him but was stubbornly plowing on with the pursuit of another to save her family.

    In general, this was an okay read. I will definitely continue to read books by Ms Hawkins, this just wasn't one of my favorites.

  • Early this morning I finished reading Karen Hawkins' How to Pursue a Princess. I must say that I enjoyed the story. However, it was a little different from How to Capture a Countess. Actually, How to Pursue a Princess reminded me a Candice Hern's book A Garden Folly. Yes, there are similarities and difference, but today's focus on How to Pursue a Princess.

    In How to Capture a Countess, it was filled with light-heartedness with the hero and heroine trying to one-up-each-other. In How to Pursue a Princess, we have Lily Balfour trying to save her family from finacial ruin. So, she always figure she wouldn't get married, but cirmstances call for her to action. Now she needs to marry for money and hope to find love in the process. After all, the Duchess of Roxburghe is known for making impectable matches. However, I think the Duchess is off her game when she tries to match Lily with the Earl of Huntley.

    However, when Lily meets Piotr Romanovin, Prince Wulfinski (Wulf), it's instant attraction. Yet, when she finds out Wulf is pauper prince, she needs to keep pursuing Huntley because he has the means to save her family. Now Wulf knows that Lily is to be his, and he will try to prove that love can solve all problems. Granted Wulf is actually wealthy, but he wants her to love him for who he is other than a title and money.

    There is a slight problem with Huntley. Actually two: 1) She doesn't love him 2) Miss Emma Gordon who happens to be a good friend to Huntley. However, that's not going to deter Lily for making her conquest. So, we have the Duchess cheering for the match, while Emma and Wulf team up to win the love of their lives. A tough task for Wulf and Emma to outwit the Duchess.

    Overall, it was enjoyable. However, I was a little worry that Lily was going to forsake her happiness for security. Let's be honest, that can be stressful. I had to remind myself a couple of times it will all be ok. I really did like how Emma and Wulf try to out Duchess the Duchess with their plan. So, if you are looking for a story with "pauper" prince and a girl looking for a hero, you might enjoy How to Pursue a Princess.
