Pleasant addition to the series but too short

This is Book 3 in Lacy Williams' Cowboy Fairy Tales series. It is about a fictitious European royal family finding love, usually with cowboys in Texas. The idea is silly but I think really pleasant. It is a "clean" romance series (no sex, just kissing) in which each book focuses on a different couple finding love. In this one, Peter is a prince who has never been recognized by his cousins and uncle in the royal family because his crazy mother has been ostracized for decades. Peter intends to find a way to cause trouble for his royal cousin Alesandra living in Texas. However, Peter meets Texas girl McKenna Hastings, who wants to win scholarship money as a rodeo queen. She makes quite an impression on Peter, our "toad prince". FYI, this series is best read in order because some story arcs continue from book to book.
I really enjoyed Books 1 and 2. I liked this one, but I found it a bit disappointing. I wish it was a little longer so that Peter and McKenna had more time together growing their relationship. The ending of the book was a little abrupt, feeling like "happy for now" but not complete enough for a "happily ever after". I hope that this couple gets some more page time in upcoming books. Also, McKenna's pair of cousins were too one-dimensional in their villainous behavior. Lastly, the audiobook was somewhat disappointing because the narrator started to get on my nerves a little with her over-emphasis of words in sentences. She is not the most expert narrator ever, but I had been pleased with her in the last two books. She is pretty good at male and female voices and Texas accents, though. Her European accent is a little lame but passable. I recommend that potential readers definitely listen to the sample before they buy it.
I still plan on listening to the next book in the series. The continuing story arcs really intrigue me, and I am looking forward to hearing about the scarred princess, who is like the Beast in Beauty and the Beast. I really like all 3 couples that we have met so far. In addition, I enjoy the Texas setting. The rodeo setting in Austin seemed very vivid. It was clear that the author has experienced rodeos first hand. I also love the cheerful tone to the series as a whole.
I received a free copy from the author, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
