I love royal stories so no wonder this book by Andrea Laurence swept me away. Seduced by the Spare Heir is delightful and entertaining from beginning to end. The characters portray their roles in a believable manner. Colorful, well-written scenes sweep you away into the fictional world of Alma where we meet Gabriel Montoro and Serafia Espina. Once you start reading you’re hooked. However this story wouldn’t be such an entertainer if the characters didn’t face the worst of trials. Interwoven back-stories give readers a clear glimpse into the lives of the characters and as Gabriel and Serafia get past their personal problems we see how the romance between them bloom. Overall, fast-paced and interesting!
