Release Date: October 1, 2014

A royal kiss under the mistletoe…

Prince Alexandro Castanovo arrives in snowy New York intent on protecting his royal family from scandal. And when Reese Harding—down-to-earth and heart-stoppingly beautiful—finds room for him at her inn, it seems like the perfect twist of fate.

Not long ago Reese's world came crumbling down, shaking her foundations. But this enigmatic stranger intrigues her! She's learned to be wary of secrets…but when she discovers Alex's true identity, might there be enough magic in the air to make this regular American girl a princess by Christmas…?




Excerpt:

When Reese started walking, Alex fell in step next to her.
Hand in hand, they moved as though they’d been together for years.
She glanced over at him. “Are you still up for going to dinner like we planned?”
He was hungry—there was no doubt about that. But food wasn’t what he craved.
Big snowflakes drifted lazily to the ground and quickly covered her hair. He’d never seen anyone so beautiful. It was going to be hard to stay focused on his priorities when all he wanted to do was get closer to Reese. If only his life were different…
In that moment he heard the king’s clear, distinct voice in his head. Your life is one of honor—of duty. You must always think of the kingdom first.
And that was what he was doing—but each day it was getting harder and harder to live by those rules. He glanced at Reese. Definitely much harder than he’d ever imagined.
