A Princess is Always Right by Stephanie Burkhart - Review Tour and Giveaway

A Princess is Always Right
by Stephanie Burkhart


GENRE:  steampunk romance



Sophia may be the youngest Windsor, but she knows her mind. A Princess of York, she's committed to do her duty – prevent Jonas Byron from finding Nikola Tesla and decimating the time line.

Jax Ruston is a rugged metalsmith with curly hair and dimples to die for. A resident of 1855, he's pledged to help Sophia find Jonas. Together, they journey across continental Europe in pursuit of Jonas.

Despite her duty, Sophia's attracted to handsome Jax. However, he's committed to living in 1855. Can Sophia keep her focus on her mission, or will desire interfere with her task? Only one thing is certain: a princess is always right.



With Sophie Windsor the time-traveling Windsors of the Windsor Diaries come to an end. Sophie is the last Windsor to travel through time to Victorian England. Something has gone very very wrong. The present no longer runs on clean energy. Instead someone has meddled with the past and now it is running on the internal combustion engine and pollution is very common. Sophie comes back in time to fix the problem. There is just one complication, her attraction to Jax. He is from the Victorian time and must stay in the past while she needs to go back to the present. Of course there is also the chase to find and prevent the changes that have affected the present. This is a very good conclusion to the series. Sophie is a great character and Jax is everything you would want in a man. Look for another fun adventure. I loved all the references to historical characters. Burkhart did a very good job changing just small things to make them fit in the story. I do recommend reading the series in order. That way you will not be confused when something just does not fit. I know because I did switch the order on two of the books.


She wrinkled her brow. What did she want? To go home and train horses and pray the press leave her alone? To support charities? Sure, the task was noble, but not...fulfilling. Would she be dispatched through Great Britain as a goodwill ambassador? Did she want to seek higher schooling like Richard had? Was there a balance to be found between her personal life and her royal obligations? Richard and Alice seemed to find that balance, but Sophia felt almost rudderless in this moment. Did she want to remain a princess or enjoy the anonymity that Edmund possessed?

She ran a hand over her hair. She'd never felt so directionless before. Why was that? Because she wanted Jax in her life? They had discussed visiting each other using the time machine before Augustus' uncle passed away, but Sophia believed travel wouldn't be approved just for dating.

"You're a Windsor. Duty first. Love second. That's what I did and the nation benefited because of it." Liz's voice filled with pride.

"I had no idea it was such a thought provoking question." He kept his voice light in an effort to put her at ease.

She placed her hands in her lap. "Surprisingly, it is."

"How so?"

"I have some very serious decisions to make regarding my future." She drew in a breath. "And the direction I want to take it in."

He chuckled. "Remember -- a princess is always right."

She sighed, realizing she could only think of one major problem at a time and her future would have to wait. "I have to be right when it comes to Jonas. I have to catch him."
