She’s devoted to helping children. He’s never had to worry about anyone but himself. Can a playboy prince and a social worker get their happily-ever-after?

When Prince Henry Somerset, the third in line to the kingdom of Durham, runs out of gas on a country road, a young woman driving an old truck stops to help him. Beneath her cold demeanor, Henry sees an intriguing woman whom he’d like to know more, but when she recognizes him, she’s quick to ask for his royal sponsorship.

Adrianne Blake is no stranger to disappointment. Now in charge of a pilot program at the community medical center, she’s in dire need of help or dozens of children depending on her will suffer. Despite Prince Henry’s playboy reputation, meeting him could mean the solution she’s been hoping for.

As Adrianne works side by side with Prince Henry to bring success to the program, she realizes there’s more to the man than her first impression. But as problems arise threatening everything she’s worked for, is their new friendship enough to allow their feelings to grow into something more?  

My Review: 5 Stars
I LOVE a fun, sweet story about a prince and an everyday girl. Because, hello? Don't most girls dream of becoming a princess someday? Okay...maybe that was just me...
Prince Harry...oops! I meant, Prince Henry and Adrianne meet in an interesting way and her first reaction to him was priceless. He's not used to girls not fawning all over him, but Henry is finally ready to grow up and take some royal responsibility and what better way to do so than working on a project that Adrianne is closely involved in?
I loved these two characters, especially as they battled the insane chemistry between them, worked hard on a program they're both passionate about, and fight the misconceptions surrounding them, especially Henry. They both became life-like to me, as I could vividly picture them, their setting, and their budding romance.
One thing that I really enjoyed was that, as much as I truly do love royals, there was more to this story than just fluff. There are tight familial bonds on both sides, as well as conflicts and issues to resolve. The love story is just the cherry on top of a great story.
Content: mild romance
