What girl doesn’t want to wear a tiara? Me. The one who lives in yoga pants and knows she’s not special enough to be a princess.
One minute I’m starting my dream life in NYC, and the next, a man too hot for his own good is banging on my door, telling me that I’m a 25 year old long lost princess of a country on the other side of the Atlantic.
Not exactly your typical Friday night in the Big Apple.
Suddenly, all of my plans for the future are yanked away. I’m trapped in a life filled with social obligations—and stilettos!—and an uptight royal family I didn’t know existed. They, and the whole rest of the freaking country, have lofty expectations I’m not sure I can meet.
At least the aforementioned sexalicious man, Elias, is my constant shadow, protecting me with his life. The whole situation is overwhelming. So I’ve secretly put him in charge of my happiness, too...and he’s taking my orders very, very seriously.
So seriously, I’m falling for him even harder than the new country I’m coming to...maybe...love.
And that’s a major problem, because he’s crazy about me, too. I may not know all the zillion rules about being royal, but I know one for sure: No way can a princess hook-up with her bodyguard…

Charming & Entertaining!
This story was well written, light in the drama department, was witty, cute, entertaining, and a pretty fun read for the most part, but sometimes low drama and angst and a whole lot of charm is just what you need. And with such great characters and a delightfully fun spin on a royal romance story this was a fun and quick read.
Kelsey and Mallory Wishner were finally officially residents of the most exciting city in the world. Manhattan. It had been a lifelong dream of theirs and they had finally scraped and saved enough to afford it. But before they were even done unpacking, Kelsey was speechless, when a handsome man with official documents arrived at her front door, informing her, she was the kidnapped princess of the House of Villani, the royal family of Moncrian. What young girl hasn’t wanted to be a Princess at one time or another? But this had to be a reality show? Right? No it’s not.
This is quite the fun ride as Kelsey and her sister Mallory are swept off to meet the Royal family. And what better way to enjoy the meet and greet but to start to have strong feelings for her handsome bodyguard? And maybe having a little fun on the side? Yes this is filled to the brim with laugh out loud moments, and stomach-flip, romantic times that will keep you reading into the night.
I requested a complimentary copy from NetGalley for an honest review.
I was so surprised by how much I loved this book!
I was so surprised by how much I loved this book! After Kelsey and her sister finally achieve their dream of living in NYC, her world seems to crash around her when she finds out she is actually a princess that was kidnapped as a baby. Confused and hesitant, she agrees to travel to meet her family and get more information about what happened to her. Elias, the guard tasked with not only finding her but also bringing her home, has ties to her original kidnapping and while he’s attracted to her is unwilling to risk his family’s reputation. As Kelsey attempts to assimilate into life as a royal, she finds herself unable to bond or relate to her family and it pushes her more to spend time with who she’s comfortable with – Elias. This was my first book by Christi but it won’t be my last, especially since we get Genevieve’s book next! I really enjoyed her style of writing and the pace of the storyline, not to mention the plot! It was definitely a Hallmark movie but in book form and I couldn’t get enough!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
