Rowan Palotay hopes she never runs into the too-handsome Prince Theodore Chenery ever again after she leaves an embarrassing first impression. But fixing her mistake garners even more attention from the prince, and when he requests she be his reporter for a news story, she can’t say no.
Prince Theo is completely enchanted with Rowan and finds her special brand of kindness and honesty impossible to ignore. Back home, his choices are made for him, but here in this small town where his mother grew up, he feels connections he never has before. And the more time he and Rowan spend together, the more he wants her—all of her.
When obligations back home take a turn he didn’t see coming, he’s ready to stake his claim. But when his father and the media get wind of his relationship with Rowan, Theo must decide whether to follow his heart or his royal duty.
Soooo good!! I adore Rowan. She's a little bit ditzy, a whole lot of fun, and so incredibly sweet you can't help but want her to find her HEA. One teeny tiny mistake at work has her on the hot seat and now she has one chance to get it right. Meeting Prince Theodore was her luckiest day ever. Well wrapping him up in the dog leashes wasn't her finest move but it worked out! Now she has the chance to redeem herself at the newspaper and right an in depth article on the Prince. And if that means spending more time with Theo - bonus! Theo is in Marietta to meet his Grandparents for the very first time. He grew up hearing about the quaint little town and his grandparents but this is the first time he has made the trip here. Meeting the feisty Rowan Palotay wasn't originally in the plans but sometimes the best things are those that are unplanned.
This story is wonderfully written and these characters will steal your hear. I highly recommend this one.
Always leaves you with a smile on your face!!!
Prince Theodore Chenery was exotic, sexy and smelled really good according to Rowan Palotay. In my opinion it was Rowan's quirky, witty, "all out there and I won't apologize for it" attitude that was the star of this book. Rowan Palotay is a "take care of everyone else before yourself" type of person. She's great! Falling for a Prince that has an arranged marriage far away on some Mediterranean island is not in her future plans.
Great story! I love the part of the story line that actually brought Theo to Montana. It gives this lighthearted Romance a little more emotional depth. This author has a fantastic writing style that always leaves you with a smile on your face at the end. I can't wait to see what's next!
Christmas with a Prince
How does one recover from literally running into a prince while dog walking? Rowan Palotay never expected meeting Prince Theo Chenery in this manner. Her life hasn’t quite gone as she planned lately. One minor mistake has her demoted to writing a small pet column in the Marietta newspaper. Rowan can’t figure out how she got on the naughty list nor how to get off. Christmas is supposed to be a time for joy and magic. Rowan is definitely not feeling it, at least until she is given the assignment of writing an article about the visiting prince.
Prince Theodore Chenery, Theo, is visiting Marietta shortly after the death of his mother, the Queen. He needed to explore his mother’s past life, growing up in Marietta, and getting to know his grandparents, who he never knew. The accidental run-in with Rowan leads him to an unexpected friendship with this lively girl who is unlike anyone he’s met before. Her kindness and honesty makes is difficult to remember his obligations back home. Once their relationship makes worldwide news, Theo must decide whether to follow his heart or his royal duty.
This was a sweet, fun and entertaining story with very likeable and authentic characters that you want to cheer on, hoping for that happy ending. The characters were well written with complex characteristics. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers.
