My Rating: 4.5 stars
I fell in love with The GP’s Royal Secret not only because it’s a well-written story with likable characters but because it’s realistic in a way that I could see how Davian and Cate got themselves into this particular situation, to begin with – and enjoyed how they reconnected after so many years that Davian miss with his adorable daughter.
One precious little girl steals scenes and hearts quite easily and a prince comes to know his own personal princess while determined to win her mother’s heart once again. There were odds stacked against them in some ways, but there was also a determination to claim their personal freedom beyond his royal duties to his family. I’ll admit that I was quite annoyed with one particular over-the-top stubborn set in his way character. And, ironically, got an imagined look behind that royal curtain that is pulled as the rest of the world has no idea what is really happening.
Cate and Davian obviously never stopped loving each other even though circumstances tore them apart years ago. I enjoyed watching them sort themselves out, finding a solution to the situation, and reclaiming the love that never died in spite of everything that’s happened. If a forever love getting a chance to make things right is a style of romance you enjoy, then The GP’s Royal Secret would be perfect for you.
