Book Review: A Foreign Crown by Jen Geigle Johnson

About the Book:

Following a devastating series of misfortunes, Lady Aribella Bardsley has bravely shouldered the responsibilities of her household. But just as the bleakness of her situation threatens to overwhelm her, a summons arrives from the Queen with a providential offer: Aribella’s presence is requested as a lady-in-waiting at the palace. 
Prince Layton Wilhelm’s family has clung to their neutrality in the war for far too long. As the youngest of the King of Oldenburg’s eight sons, Layton is determined to prove his worth and is unwilling to turn a blind eye to Napoleon’s encroaching privateers. When Layton embarks on a journey to England, it is for one purpose: to petition the British navy for aid. But when he becomes acquainted with the lovely Lady Aribella, he cannot deny their powerful connection. Amid the intrigues and schemes within the walls of the palace, Layton and Aribella know a future together is impossible—but torn between loyalty and love, will they risk everything to follow their hearts?

My Thoughts:

I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Foreign Crown by Jen Geigle Johnson. Prince Layton and Lady Aribella suited each other and I loved watching their relationship grow from friendship and mutual admiration to a full-blown secret romance with plenty of chemistry. Both characters feel duty-bound to others and must make difficult, life-changing decisions. More character development would have been welcome, but Layton and Aribella enchanted me as they were. A Foreign Crown felt light and was so entertaining that I didn’t want to put it down.

A Foreign Crown commences Jen Geigle Johnson’s Royal Regency Romance series and I can’t wait for more!
