Review: The Prince and His Captivating Carpenter by Charlie Cochet (Paranormal Princes #2)

I love how Charlie Cochet can switch from romantic suspense to paranormal romance and still maintain the quality of writing that I've come to expect from her! Two books in and her Paranormal Princes series has easily become one of my not-so-guilty reading pleasures--because hello, why the heck should I feel guilty about acknowledging the awesomeness that is about King Alarick, Lord Eldrich, and the princes who are challenged to show their worthiness and find love along the way?! You also don't need to read The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard prior to reading the brand-new The Prince and His Captivating Carpenter (and this is where I encourage you to do so anyway because the series starter was a fab enemies-to-lovers read!), so you can feel free to jump straight in this.

The Prince and His Captivating Carpenter is about Prince Bernd, also known as the Prince of Bear Shifters, and Saer, a coyote shifter tasked to accompany the prince on his quest. Bernd's curiosity over his companion is there from the get-go, especially considering Saer has been living right under Bernd's nose for quite some time. But Bernd cannot afford to be distracted, not when he needs to prove his worthiness to King Alarick. Learning that his quest will take him to the very place where he lost his beloved father makes this journey even more difficult for Bernd, but will Saer prove to be the perfect shifter to have by his side in order to succeed in the quest...and even beyond?

I adored every single thing about Bernd and Saer's story! It was quick-paced yet didn't skimp on both the romance swirling between Bernd and Saer and the intriguing quest that King Alarick has set the two on. I loved that this had a fine balance of lightheartedness with some angst mingling because of the respective back stories of our Prince of Bear Shifters and the beguiling coyote shifter who may or may not be his gifted carpenter (that's not a spoiler since the title basically pairs up the prince with the aforementioned genius woodworker and furniture designer). This was every bit the entertaining and endearing read I expected it to be, but this time around, readers are left with a cliffhanger of sorts. No, it has nothing to do with Bernd and Saer's happy ending; rather, it's about Alarick and Jean (aka the king and his dear adviser and friend)! So excited! Five stars go to The Prince and His Captivating Carpenter. ♥
