I loved this book. It was a wonderful fairy tale type romance with Prince Alexandro Castanovo from Marraccino arriving in New York in disguise hoping that nobody would recognize him. He had reservations at The Willows Inn which was run by Reese Harding. Reese had been struggling to keep the inn going and not let any of her employees go when Alex arrived for his reservation. Reese's mother had taken the reservation but not properly so Reese had no record of it even though a huge deposit had been taken. Since they didn't have a room available for him, Reese gave up her bedroom for Alex until a guest room became available. Even though Alex was attracted to Reese he fought it because he had a duty to his family and country which didn't include a romance with a commoner.

I was captivated with this story right from the beginning. I couldn't read it fast enough to find out what happened but I didn't want it to end either. What a problem. It takes place a couple of weeks before Christmas making it a great holiday read but even with that it could be read and enjoyed at any time of the year. Alex's secret was difficult for him to keep but he felt he had no choice but to hide his identity and location, even though he knew he would never be able to explain it to Reese if she found out.

The character development was very well done. I loved that Alex was an all around nice guy and was even a bit unsure of himself at times. I swear Alex is my new book boyfriend. Reese was not as easy to like at first because she was so controlling but once she loosened up and let go of some of her need for control, she was much better to appreciate.

I must say that this did bring tears to my eyes at times - especially the ending. I am so glad I won this book or I might have missed it. If you like romance you will love A Princess By Christmas and I highly recommended it.

HASH(0x9b4578e8) out of 5 stars Cute modern fairytale Oct. 9 2014
By Roberta - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Who hasn’t dreamt as a child to meet a charming prince and become a princess? If you’re raising your hand and saying, “me” than maybe this book isn’t for you.
If, on the other hand, you’re like me and have grown up watching Disney movies and dreaming of being swept away by a handsome prince just like all the female characters in those movies, you should grab a copy of this book.
A Princess By Christmas is a modern fairytale, featuring Reese, an independent American woman struggling to make ends meet and save her family inn from the debts her father left behind when he died, and Alexandro, a handsome Mediterranean prince in disguise who’s travelling to New York to take away the attention of the paparazzi from a scandal looming over his royal family back home. If he becomes the target for the paparazzi, they’ll be too busy to go dig into his twin brother’s (and crown prince) life, so all he needs to do is spread rumours about him having fallen in love with an American girl and they’ll follow him to New York. There’s only one problem: he hasn’t found a fake girlfriend yet – but when he meets Reese, the owner of the inn he’s booked a stay in, his immediate attraction to her throw him a little off kilter. As a member of the royal family, he has duties and expectations – falling in love is not on his agenda. Neither is on Reese’s.
As they start to get closer, the attraction gets harder to ignore and when Alex is forced to tell Reese the truth, things become even more complicated. It’s all supposed to be a charade, and Reese doesn’t want to give her heart to Alex, no matter how charming he is but when the line between reality and pretense blurs, can they keep to their initial plan and part ways as soon as the situation has been fixed?
This book is a very quick read that I managed to start and finish over a weekend. The Christmas atmosphere gives it that little bit of magic, but it’s okay to read it throughout the year because it’s not your typical Christmas story – especially since Reese ends up spending Christmas day on a Mediterranean isle with palm trees and blue skies.
I enjoyed the book, even though I felt there could have been a little more character development, as it seems that both characters changed their beliefs and attitudes almost too quickly. Apart from this, which is only my personal view, I liked the story and I would recommend it to all those readers who enjoy a clean, modern fairytale with no angst or tension. If you like sweet romance, you will like this book.

HASH(0x9b457d74) out of 5 stars Very sweet fairy tale type of romance. Dec 4 2014
By S. Frank - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reese is struggling to make ends meet at her inn. Several years earlier she'd had to leave school, giving up her dreams of becoming an artist, when her father died. His death brought secrets to light that devastated her mother and made it difficult for Reese to trust another man.

Alex shows up at the inn one night, expecting to be able to stay in the room he had reserved. Unfortunately, there had been a mix-up and there were no rooms available. In order not to lose his deposit, Reese put him up in her room until one became available for him. Alex is in New York to try to head off a scandal involving his older brother and an ill-advised marriage. He is attracted to Reese and finds her infinitely fascinating, but knows there is no chance of a relationship between them. Alex has spent most of his adult life paying very close attention to his duty to his family and country and ignoring anything that would be strictly for himself. He also refuses to allow himself to fall in love, having seen his father's devastation after his mother's death. Alex comes up with the idea of asking Reese to pretend to be his girlfriend in order to draw the paparazzis' attention. He doesn't expect to start to have feelings for her.

Reese liked Alex before she found out who he was. He was attractive, nice and fun to be with. She wasn't so happy when she found out his secret, as she'd had enough experience with deception thanks to her father. When Alex begged for her help in order to protect his brother and his home, she couldn't say no. She knew that there was no chance that their deception could become real, but her heart was harder to convince. When he took her home to his Mediterranean island she was entranced by it. The things they did together as part of the deception were a lot of fun, and she found herself falling deeper for him. Just when she thought there might be a chance for them, things fell apart and she fled for home.

I loved the way that the author used How the Grinch Stole Christmas to show Alex the price of devoting himself solely to duty. He had to learn about the importance of love, and when he did, he did it very well. I loved his "go big" moment, and the epilogue was very sweet.

HASH(0x9b45d150) out of 5 stars Good Reading! Dec 4 2014
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This story is a modern day fairy tale romance with a holiday backdrop which makes the romance that much sweeter.

Reese is a strong young woman who has survived some pretty big emotional wallops in her life. She doesn’t trust men, with good reason. As the story opens, Reese is struggling to keep the old mansion she has set up as a B&B afloat after her father left Reese and her mother in deep debt. Reese has had to give up her dreams in order to keep her business running and take care of her emotionally fragile mother.

When a handsome man with a sexy accept shows up at the house claiming he has a reservation, it’s immediately apparent there has been some kind of mistake. Arrangements are made for this mysterious, and rather persistent man despite having no available rooms for him.

Alex is a prince who has traveled to America in hopes of drawing attention from the media away from this brother and his latest scandal which could put his country’s regime in peril. He never dreamed he would meet the woman who would cause him to question his staunch adherence to duty and obligation.

The story was just a bit uneven at the beginning and was oddly disjointed which disrupted the flow. It was just little slow moving at first and the set up took up a little too much time. But, once the story reached the half way mark all those little kinks had been smoothed out and I found myself really involved in the plot.

Alex was so nice and sweet and so open with his feelings but, he was also bogged down by the rules of his family and country and their expectations. I thought it was kind of ironic that his wayward brother would teach Alex a thing or two about love and life. Reese would have to work hard to open herself up like Alex. Her guard was up at all times, but Alex was simply too irresistible…the ultimate prince charming. Who doesn’t love this fairytale like story where the poor girl who has given up her dreams to face life’s harsh realities winds up becoming a princess when she meets the love of her life? This is sigh worthy every.single.time. The poignancy of the holiday season was very difficult for Reese, so it was only fitting that she would find true love and all her hopes and wishes would come true at Christmas. This is a very sweet holiday themed romance and I really enjoyed reading it.

HASH(0x9b45d234) out of 5 stars Perfect Holiday Read!!!! Oct. 25 2014
By CurlUpWGoodBook - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Looking for a heart-warming fairy tale love story?! This book is for you! I absolutely loved this book! Reese had to drop out of college to return home after her father dies. Reese and her mother are left in debt and are trying to keep their New York family mansion in business.

Their luck begins to change when they over book their rooms and let a very intriguing guest stay in their private quarter of the house. Alex does not let anyone know that he is the Princess of Mirraccino!!! Neither Alex or Reese are looking for love but they both realize that their is something between them!

I would definitely recommend adding this book to your list! It is a great love story with just the right amount of Christmas spirit! I give it 5 stars!
