"A perfect combination of sweet and sexy moments makes A Princess for Christmas an unputdownable read!"--Mia Sosa, USA Today bestselling author
From USA Today bestselling author Jenny Holiday comes a modern fairy tale just in time for Christmas about a tough New Yorker from the other side of the tracks who falls for a princess from the other side of the world.
Leo Ricci's already handling all he can, between taking care of his little sister Gabby, driving a cab, and being the super of his apartment building in the Bronx. But when Gabby spots a "princess" in a gown outside of the UN trying to hail a cab, she begs her brother to stop and help. Before he knows it, he's got a real-life damsel in distress in the backseat of his car.
Princess Marie of Eldovia shouldn't be hailing a cab, or even be out and about. But after her mother’s death, her father has plunged into a devastating depression and the fate of her small Alpine country has fallen on Marie’s shoulders. She’s taken aback by the gruff but devastatingly handsome driver who shows her more kindness than she’s seen in a long time.
When Marie asks Leo to be her driver for the rest of her trip, he agrees, thinking he’ll squire a rich miss around for a while and make more money than he has in months. He doesn’t expect to like and start longing for the unpredictable Marie. And when he and Gabby end up in Eldovia for Christmas, he discovers the princess who is all wrong for him is also the woman who is his perfect match.
Opposites attract in this thoroughly charming Christmas romance from Holiday (Mermaid Inn). When architecture student Leo Ricci's parents died, he dropped out of college to take over raising his 11-year-old sister, Gabby, supporting them both with a job as a taxi driver and as the on-site super of their Bronx apartment building. He meets Princess Marie of Eldovia when she commandeers his off-duty cab, desperate to get to an important diplomatic party. Gabby, riding shotgun, persuades Leo to take pity on the plucky princess and chauffeur her to her destination, leading Marie to hire Leo as her personal driver while she's in town. Leo doesn't expect to like Marie, but he soon learns that underneath her posh exterior is a sweet, vulnerable woman. The unlikely pair grow close, leading Marie to invite Leo and Gabby to spend Christmas in Eldovia. The snappy prose, charming atmosphere, and Hallmark movie style plot combine to create a delightful romance, underpinned by strong supporting characters. This Christmas treat, with its intoxicating blend of heat and sweet, is a winner.
