When the prince she was supposed to marry falls for someone else, Edeena Saleri is done with Garronia's courts, crowns, and family curses. She grabs her sisters and escapes to the nobility-free coast of South Carolina, USA.

Refuge isn't anything like it's supposed to be, however. The family's island vacation home now borders a singles' retreat, which Edeena's sisters embrace all too eagerly. Worse, the private protection firm Edeena hires is run by the most infuriating man she's ever met--a rough-hewn, dark-eyed, charismatic charmer named, of course, Prince. He's not a royal and he's nowhere near noble, so there's no way he can break the family curse. And yet...

Vincent "Prince" Rallis has spent his whole life justifying his name. The son of hardworking immigrant parents, he's hustled for every dime, finally building a personal security firm with the muscle and grit to live up to its promises. He's used to keeping his cool, but when the high-strung, high-class Edeena shuts him down despite her obvious interest, pride demands he fight for her--even if he has to track her back to her glittering court to prove his point. Only once Prince arrives in the seaside kingdom of Garronia, he finds his troubles are just beginning.

Sometimes love in Garronia can be magic. And sometimes you're just
 Cursed.

This book is the fifth book in the Gowns and Crowns series, but I have read the first book, Courted. I have yet to read books two through four, but this book felt more like a standalone. This book did have a slow start. A good portion of the book was to set up the infamous Saleri "curse." The leading lady, Edeena Saleri, and her sisters are in America for a suppose vacation, while Edeena tries to figure out what to do about the family curse. Then, there's Vincent "Prince" Rallis. A hardworker and owner of a security company with the best rep in the States. The pair of them are mismatched couple, but despite the difference in their backgrounds, they somehow work together as a couple. They grew on me as a couple and I'm okay with that. I am interested to find out what happily ever afters Jennifer Chance has in store for the other Saleri girls

3.5 STARS
