The Princess Plan
Published: 11/26/2019
Princes have pomp and glory—not crushes on commoners. Nothing gets the tongues of London’s high society wagging like a good scandal. And when the personal secretary of the visiting Prince Sebastian of Alucia is found murdered, it’s all anyone can talk about, including Eliza Tricklebank. Her unapologetic gossip gazette has benefited from an anonymous tip about the crime, prompting Sebastian to take an interest in playing detective—and an even greater interest in Eliza. With a…

Special thanks to Harlequin for providing our copy of The Princess Plan by Julia London in exchange for an honest & fair review.

The Princess Plan

Eliza was the spinster daughter of a blind court judge. Her days were filled with helping her widowed sister continue to publish the gazette her brother-in-law had started, assisting her father with his legal work, or partaking in her hobby of fixing timepieces.

Bas was born the crown Prince of Alucia.  His days were full of royal matters; war with their neighbor and finding a British wife with ties to Queen Victoria ‘s court.

Love Eliza

Eliza is my kind of girl.  She’s smart, opinionated, brave, and she cares not for society’s rules regarding single women. Not the typical young woman.

An untimely murder, an anonymous note to the judge, and a blurb in the Gazette lead to many, many meetings between Sebastian and Eliza.

During their time together, Bas starts to depend on Eliza for her attributes detailed above.  He recognizes that she has so much more to offer than the propped up and promoted twits paraded before him as potential mates.

How can these two shatter the Victorian shackles and expectations to find true love and happiness?


I really enjoyed this book! Even if you think historical romance is not your thing, try it! The Princess Plan is fun. Another romance I loved recently is The Write Escape by Charish Reid.
