Book Description: Rosie is fairly certain that there’s nothing wrong with putting a love spell on a foreign prince. At least she hopes there's not, because such a drastic measure is necessary in order for her to ensure that the perfect fairy tale romance she’s dreamt about her entire life includes her own prince charming. As the heroine in her story, she won’t be deterred by well-meaning friends, royal betrothals, hungry dragons, or the intriguing guard who stands in her way.
Luckily, Rosie has access to an enchanted bakery and a recipe book of spells, one of which will ensure she’ll win the royal heart she desires. Unfortunately, no story is complete without a few obstacles, and Rosie’s comes in the form of a most formidable foe—a stoic guard whom Rosie may or may not be developing feelings for, one who is committed to thwarting her at every turn. But nothing will stand in the way of Rosie’s happily ever after. After all, what harm can a simple love spell do?
Inspired by “The Frog Prince”
My thoughts: I can imagine that Camille Peters had a great time writing this book. I found it to be written as a "tongue-in-cheek" novel. I found Rosie to be an "over-the-top" character and that her actions and words were not always in harmony. There were many moments that were very funny. She certainly knows how to get herself in a predicament.
The best part was the banter between Rosie and the guard Alastair. Prince Liam was a pleasant surprise. His part as the "spelled" victim in the book was funny. I can't imagine having a Prince drool over me. It was out of character for the flirtatious Prince that left me snickering quite a bit.
This is the second book in a series, it can be read as a stand-alone, but I would highly recommend reading Pathways before this one. That way you are familiar with the characters and their role in this book.
This book is a comedic romance that is loosely based on a fairy-tale. It contains mild romance and the threat of dragons (I must not forget the dragons.).

About the Author: (Taken from Goodreads) Camille Peters was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah where she grew up surrounded by books. As a child, she spent every spare moment reading and writing her own stories on every scrap of paper she could find. Becoming an author was always more than a childhood dream; it was a certainty.
Her love of writing grew alongside her as she took local writing classes in her teens, spent a year studying Creative Writing at the English University of Northampton, and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in English and History. She’s now blessed to be a full-time author.
When she’s not writing she’s thinking about writing, and when’s she’s not thinking about writing she’s…alright, she’s always thinking about writing, but she can also be found reading, playing board games with her family and friends, or taking long, bare-foot walks as she lives inside her imagination and brainstorms more tales.
