Title: A Royal Christmas Princess
Author: Scarlet Wilson
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Published: October 11th, 2016
This is another delightful festive read, with a young woman, struggling after nursing her dying mother, discovering that not only was she actually adopted but her real father is royalty and searching for her! She agrees to travel to meet him but is reluctant to have her identity made public before she has had the opportunity to meet her ailing father and discover more about the country he rules. With an opinionated, ambitious member of the press travelling with her, a Chancellor who obviously seeks to undermine her self confidence by overwhelming her with meetings and factual data, her ally through it all is the next in line for the throne, Felix. The problem there is she really likes Felix but is unsure who she should trust and what she should do. Discovering she’s really a princess isn’t anything like in fairy tales! To discover what happen you’ll just have to read the story for yourself!
The angst and turmoil experienced by this young woman is emotionally portrayed, making it easy to relate to her as new possibilities unfold before her. It is a well paced story, with great characters and plenty of dilemmas. Another thoroughly enjoyable festive read to escape into, whatever the season!
I was gifted an ARC of this novel via NetGalley with no obligation or requirement to review it. This is my honest review after reading the ARC.
After a tough year losing her mom and bills mounting, Holly Yates is in for a lonely Christmas. But when she hears a news report that the small principality of Coronia is looking for their lost princess, she recognizes her baby photo on the news and is astounded. Felix – the could-be Prince – is delighted to find her and whips her off to a snow-covered Coronia to meet her real-life ailing father where he persuades her to fall in love with the people and the place.
Holly is so shell shocked by everything that she agrees – as long as they keep her identity secret until she makes up her mind. But can a shy girl from Baltimore really become a fairy tale princess?
