BlurbSamantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master's degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it's to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.
Alex D'Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he's had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women--especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She's stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone's front-page news.
While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.
ReviewAt first when I started to read this book it felt too much like the Princess Diary's, which I've watched a few thousands times with my daughter!
By chapter four I was sucked into the story and absolutely loved it, not able to put it down. In fact I loved it that much I gifted a copy to my seventeen year old daughter. There is some explicit scenes towards the back of the book, so if you are thinking about letting your daughter read it, I suggest you read it first.
You can feel the heat between the two main characters straight from the start, which just gets hotter and hotter through the book.
Samantha's personal assistant is a hoot and was a really good secondary character.
A feel good romance which really did leave me smiling!
