Review: The Princess and the Prepper – Barbara Elsborg

Posted June 30, 2013 by Shannon in Reviews / 0 Comments

17161555Lili knows she shouldn’t accept a lift from a stranger, but as usual, she leaps from one disaster to another. The consequence is being stuck in the middle of a snowy nowhere wearing next to nothing, and this time, being unprepared looks likely to kill her.

Grant lives in an isolated cabin for a reason. He’s prepared for almost every eventuality. The last thing he wants is some needy person interfering with his ordered life. When he gets into bed with a woman he rescued from certain death—just to warm her up, of course—Grant discovers something else he’s not prepared for. His heart opening.

A match made in heaven, until secrets come knocking. Lili is not just a simple woman in need of shelter, and unless she can survive dealing with her background, it doesn’t seem possible the happiness that’s fallen out of a blizzard can heal Grant’s own past.

Reviewer’s Thoughts

The story of Lili and Grant is an erotic romance novella that delivers quite a punch! Full of deeply rooted emotion and steamy sex, the author managed to put together an intense, yet different, short story. As a fan of the erotic short story, I was expecting a light-hearted typical fairy-tale fantasy. What I got, was a raw, heart-wrenching love story that develops between two people with some serious emotional baggage. And where this might sound a tad bit depressing, I can assure you that their issues lead to some amazingly touching and intimate moments. Who says sex with “feelings” is cheesy? In this novella, it MAKES the story.

The chemistry between Lili and Grant isn’t without hesitation. Both have been hurt, both are cautious, but their attraction is undeniable. Their flaws are the perfect cocktail for a deserved happily ever after. They rescue each other, which makes for a beautiful love story complete with a sneak peek into their bedroom *wink*. Unlike any other erotic short story I’ve ever come across, The Princess and the Prepper isn’t just a story to rev your engine. It’s one that touches you as a romantic, and creates more than your average arousal.
