BLOG TOUR: Stolen to Wear His Crown by Marcella Bell

 I'm pretty excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for Stolen to Wear His Crown by Marcella Bell. I received an advanced copy from the publisher for honest review. Thanks so much to Harlequin Presents and Marcella Bell for letting me be a part of this tour.


Title: Stolen to Wear His Crown
Author: Marcella Bell
Published by: Harlequin Presents 
Released: December 1, 2020
Source: Review Copy from Publisher
From unworldly scientist…
…to his fearless queen!
Mina has finally achieved her dream of becoming chief scientific advisor of Cyrano, when she’s stolen from the interview room! She’s taken directly to the palace chapel, where the terms of a secret betrothal mean she must marry the king—immediately.
Powerful King Zayn knows all too well monarchs can’t afford dangerous distractions like love. Yet still, he’s appalled to be wed to a complete stranger! Mina is altogether too sensitive, too scholarly, too unpolished to be queen. But that can’t stop the desire that flares each time she looks his way… 
From Harlequin Presents: Escape to exotic locations where passion knows no bounds. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Okay, okay, okay, this book might not be for everybody, but I kind of enjoyed it. It was in no way a realistic premise. Some of the stuff that went down was not okay, (people might say problematic) but as a suspend your disbelief romance, I enjoyed it. In ways, it kind of reminded me of the 365 Days movie.
There's just something about an arranged marriage that I find fascinating. In reality, I would hate it, but in a fictional book form, it just provides two people who have to learn to love each other. There's a lot of tension, a lot of trying to figure out the other person. It's a very weird dance of realizing that this person who you don't really know, is now your person. There's just something very interesting about that kind of relationship and I enjoy the journey. It also helps when they are both attractive and are a good match.
Mina is one intelligent and successful person. She is a lady that's worked hard for all that she has achieved. Zayn can be kind of a mess, sort of arrogant. He's got that King thing going on. Watching these two people come together and learn to love each other was satisfying.
This book was an interesting ride. I liked the storytelling and the writing. If you're looking for something to escape into, I'd say give this a shot.

Marcella Bell lives in the mostly-sunny wilds of Southern Oregon with her husband, children, father, and three mismatched mutts. The dry hot summers and four distinct annual seasons of the region are a far cry from the weird rainy streets of Portland, OR, where she grew up, but she wouldn’t trade her quirky mountain valley home for anyplace else on the earth. As a late bloomer and a yogini, Marcella is drawn to romance that showcases love’s incredible power to transform.
