I'm No Princess by Elizabeth Stephens is a young adult romance. The story opens with Tatiana Penrose leaving her Australian home to join her father in his ancestral home, Gallyr, where he just happens to be a duke. Unlike her older sister, Tati is not princess material. She's as clumsy as they come (think Mr. Bean). Tati would rather lead a quiet life but alas it is not to be. The king of Gallyr is her father's best friend and he's determined to give her the kind of welcome a lady deserves. Her introduction into Gallyrian society is a disaster and there are those who go out of their way to make sure she doesn't belong. With the press hounding her footsteps, speculating on which one of the eligible royal princes she's destined to marry, life is not getting any easier.
As the title so aptly puts it, Lady Tatiana is not anyone's idea of a princess and she most definitely knows that. I'm No Princess is funny and filled with lovely family scenes. I loved that Elizabeth Stephens created a flawed heroine who apparently had nothing going for her and turned her into a star. As Tati navigates the stuffy upper-class, she brings a more relaxed atmosphere with her. The three princes were like a minefield and I was happy with the one she ended up with. I loved that this collection allows you to read Tati's story from start to finish without any cliffhangers. Fans of underdog, ugly duckling romance will really enjoy this book and its adorable characters.
