This prequel novella was pretty good. We got a good look at the Queen, although really it definitely didn't make me like her any more. Maybe it's because I've already read Red Queen and know what she is like in there. So I would recommend this though.
I really tried, but I just couldn't get into this one. I couldn't quite place the character with what I remembered about the first story, so it didn't work for me. It is on my DNF list.
Castle Hill (On Dublin Street #3.5) by Samantha Young:
A Joss and Braden Novella
Braden Carmichael never imagined he’d fall as hard and as fast as he did for Jocelyn Butler. He also could not have anticipated how difficult it would be to convince her to give in to love. But now that he has her, he’s never letting go. He’s got it all planned—the passionate proposal, the dream wedding, the sexy Hawaiian honeymoon—even the perfect family they’ll start.
After trying to flee from her painful past, Joss is finally allowing herself to embrace the future. But when things start moving faster than she anticipated, she finds herself panicking over something Braden can’t understand. After everything they’ve been through, Joss is sure that their love can survive even her worst fears. But, this time, she may push Braden too far—and risk losing everything all over again…
As with every book in this series, including the other novella or two I've read, it was definitely something worth reading!
