Storming the Castle – Fairy Tales #1.5 by Eloisa James

Miss Phillipa Damson always dreamed of being rescued by a knight in shining armour. But as everyone knows dreams don’t always come true.  So in order to save herself from an unwanted betrothal, Phillipa runs away…straight to Pomeroy Castle.

Jonas Berwick is certainly no knight, he is not even a gentleman.  What he is though is the kind, caring majordomo of Prince Gabriel, also his half-brother. With the unexpected arrival of the new nursemaid, Jonas is soon to find that he is more of a gentleman than he thought.



This is a short novella based around the half-brother butler of our esteemed prince from A Kiss at Midnight. Jonas Berwick has always known what his station in life would be despite sharing a bloodline with Royalty.  It is nice to have this sequel to give us a little insight into what happens to him, and to finally know that he has found love and a life of his own.

I’m not sure what to make of Phillipa. I think because it is quite short I don’t feel the same connection and sympathies for her as I probably would if it had been a full length version, but then saying that, I don’t think she has much of a background to feel sympathetic about.  The important thing is, is that she does right by Jonas and treats him well.

Great to hear a bit more about Gabriel and Kate in this book too, and to meet the young Prince Jonas. Gabriel once again shows his caring and brotherly nature in this book.   Loved the ending where Wick confesses his grabbing practices.  Enjoyable albeit short story of love with a Happy Ever After.

I love to Read! Mostly romance (of all types) but I also enjoy murder mysteries, paranormal fantasy, sci-fi, comedy, pretty much anything.
