...different

The Prince and I (The Oxenburg Princes #2) by Karen Hawkins 


Certainly reading this you encounter humerous moments in this tongue in cheek play on Maid Marion and Maid Murian who admits to Max (a Prince of Oxenburg) her penchant for Robin Hood.
This is definitely not a serious contender as a Robin Hood remake, but is an enjoyable read.
I loved Max's grandmother Natasha. She stole the show. It was absolutely in character and hilarious that she gambled away that which she not--all in a good cause.
Even more hilarious that she would not tell Max just exactly what she'd done and just exactly what he was searching for.
So of course the gallant Max ends up aiding and abetting the beguiling Murian in her quest, especially as they have a common enemy.
