She wants to work on a pit crew—not be a princess.
Determined to be a member of a racing team's pit crew, the last thing mechanic Isabel "Izzy" Poussardexpects is for a gorgeous guy to step out of a limousine and tell her she's a long-lost princess…and his wife.
Crown Prince Nikola "Niko" Kresimir of Vernonia wants one thing from Isabel: an annulment. The pretty American wearing grease-stained coveralls is too rough around the edges to be the future queen. Their marriage, the result of an archaic custom neither knew about, needs to end so he can modernize his country.
As sparks fly, Niko and Izzy fight their growing attraction for each other. Neither wants to remain in an arranged marriage, but that might be the only way to keep peace in the kingdom. Is a love match possible where all their dreams can come true? Or will aspirations and pride keep them from living happily ever after?
She makes an awesome princess!
This is book one in the Her Royal Duty series and it features Niko and Izzy. This story is highly entertaining. It’s about family, duty, responsibility, obligation and ultimately love. She is about as far from princess material as she can get and he doesn’t EVER let her forget it. I thought Niko was going to be a nice guy. I thought he was going to be the prince of every girls’ dreams but in my opinion, he was a disappointment. There is so much happening and he’s so stuck on his ideals, that he doesn’t take her feelings into consideration. I feel so sad for her because he listens to her but doesn’t really hear her.
The story line is fantastic! The characters are great too. I just didn’t like the prince.
A modern fairy tale!
This is the story of a princess who had been removed from her country and family just before her parents were killed. Her parents had left her with a box that tied her to her homeland. After advertising looking for the key to open the box, a prince finds her and the box which he has the key for. A charming story of love, romance and duty.
Loved the plot and the pace of the book. I loved how Izzy’s character was written. And how understanding Nico was. Especially Julianna, I’m happy that she will have her own book. Not to dramatic scenes in this book that was to over the top so I really enjoyed it.
