Lawdy, lawdy, lawdy! K. Webster can write the heck out of a dirty romance. In Prince Charming, book 2 of her Stroke of Midnight trilogy, more of what you loved about Stroke of Midnight, the first book of this trilogy, is HERE. Prince Charming is still dirty, still edge-of your seat, and still more of Winston’s insistence that he can’t love. Add into this more of the step-brothers misbehaving, more of the Constantines, and more of Ash standing tall against Winston while falling deeper for him. As she did with Stroke of Midnight, Webster leaves us suspended on a cliff at the end of Prince Charming, so much so that I worry that Ash will make it out of alive in this series. But all of this conspires to create a book that, while dark and sometimes it hurts your heartstrings, there is a lightness to it too. It’s just plain fun even when Winston is degrading Ash and denying his feelings.
Also, K. Webster has once again brilliantly woven in so many aspects of the Cinderella myth that you can’t help but smile as you encounter the ball and the shoe and the pumpkin (yep! It’s here). She has modernized and dirtied up the fairy tale in a way that makes it a delicious read.
If you love dark romance, some seriously steamy romance, and a cliffhanger that makes you crave the next book, then you definitely want to read K. Webster’s Prince Charming. She had me at glass slipper…
In love and romance,
