Always a Princess is an unlikely Regency Romance. Focusing on a romance between two different cultures rather than just two different mindsets. From the beginning, I was intrigued by the Romany culture at this time and their interactions with the English houses. Syeira's character and her role as a Romany princess was also intriguing to read about. I was very interested in the trades that the Romany engaged in with the English households and the attitudes of the English about the Romany camps ranging from helpful to tolerant to an annoyance. While Wil and Syeira's romantic interest was apparent from the start, the writing let the characters take time to get to know one another. The focus for Syeira was always on healing her brother and Wil focused on getting the estate in order while trying to figure out his next step in life. I really liked that their relationship was always respectful and Syeira called out Wil and her brother when decision were being made about her when she was not present. Overall, a unique, sweet and engrossing cross-cultural Regency romance.
