Blurb: Fairy tales do come true—and so do tabloid scandals! Bestselling author Marquita Valentine kicks off a juicy contemporary romance series with a novel about a prince whose best-laid plans go deliciously awry when he marries the maid next door.
Forced to flee to the United States with his siblings after their parents’ assassination, Crown Prince Colin Sinclair takes it upon himself to become the caretaker of his family while hiding out near Charlotte, North Carolina. But after a decade in hiding, the secret’s out and Parliament demands that Colin wed a princess of their choosing. Unwilling to play their game, Colin decides to marry an American instead, and he has the perfect candidate in mind.
As a home-service professional, Della Hughes doesn’t believe in storybook endings. But when her best friend and secret crush reveals that he’s a flesh-and-blood prince, she doesn’t know what to think. Still, she’ll do anything for Colin, including becoming his wife—in name only, of course. But when their plans to stay purely platonic go by the wayside, their fake honeymoon turns all too real. After a week of white-hot nights, Della can no longer deny her feelings—not with a happily ever after so tantalizingly close.
Review: What a sweet and easy story about waiting for your prince only to find he’s always been there.
Della and Colin have been friends for over ten years. She’s helped him take care of his siblings and made the whole family come alive. She and her aunt have really become members of their family… And the Sinclairs really need friends.
Della and Colin have always had a secret love for each other, and the plot brings them together in the most delicious ways. You’ll cheer for them as they marry to protect Colins family inheritance and cross your fingers that more will come.
The plot and story were pretty simple but I appreciated the smoking hot sex scenes and the lack of angst in the characters. If you want to enjoy a fantasy story that’s sweet, hot, and filled with characters you’ll love, grab this book and start. I can’t wait for the next in the series. Thanks
