About the Book:
Prince Nicolas is looking for a priceless royal heirloom. Trying to stay under the radar, he keeps that he’s a prince secret—especially from the cute antiques dealer he asks to help him. The longer it takes, the more time they get to spend together, though no matter how attracted he is to Lizzie, love is certainly not an option for the heir to the crown of Belfort.
Lizzie Cates fled her family’s new-found fame and fortune because life in the spotlight wasn’t for her. She loves her small town, where the most exciting thing on the schedule is the car parade for the Fourth of July. That’s just how she likes it, until Nicolas comes along. Lizzie finds herself falling for the caring man who craves the country and small-town life as much as she does.
Except Nicolas has a secret that will shatter both their dreams…
This is a sweet contemporary romance with a royal twist and great addition to this delightful series!
Lizzie Cates runs an antique shop on Heart Street. She’s moved there to escape the spotlight her family’s recent fame had put her under and is loving life in the small town. She’s keen to be involved in local events and is helping organise the town’s fourth of July celebrations.
Prince Nicolas is trying to find a family heirloom that his grandfather gave to a visiting American lady but he never dreamed that endeavouring to speak to the young lady clearing a house out would have the consequences which follow! He knows he’s only in town for a short time and he really shouldn’t be attracted to Lizzie, but can he resist trying to convince her to give him a chance? What will happen when she discovers he’s a prince?
This story has more than one royal romance in it and is a lovely story to escape into. The town and the people in it are brought to life and I love how they strive to look after Lizzie. There are lots of incidents to put a smile on your face – including when Nicholas gets knighted! I really enjoyed this book and will certainly be looking out for more in this series and others by this author in future. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this book to anyone looking for a lovely romance to escape into.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so.
