Publisher's Summary

I never believed in fairy-tales. Never held out for Prince Charming.

Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of 23.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep. At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich. But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor's façade. Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he'd rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.

Yet uncovering Viktor's secret was only the first step. I didn't expect to fall in love with him. I didn't expect to have my whole life turned upside down. When you're from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle? Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?

Contains mature themes.

I ❤️ royal romance

This royal romance had all the feels. Sadness, happiness, love and lust. Victor and Maggie were a great couple. But what girl doesn’t dream of falling in love with a prince! This story was the kind dreams are made of....

K Hale is the best ;)

I have read two books by KH and have enjoyed them. So that’s how I ended up reading a prince and a commoner themed book when I’d normally pass on by. I am very glad I did take a chance on this book because it wasn’t cheesy!!! It was sweet a bit flowery here and there but it was very real and down to earth. It also did not have the freaky super dom male character Vic was just the right amount of man! Every woman deserves to be loved and made love to just like this. It also was not full of unnecessary drama and had lots of cute real life type moments w/ Mag’s fam, I love little ‘Damion’ he was absolutely enduring. Maybe hopefully KH will right a book for the crazy adorable little guy when he grows up!!! This is getting book-marked for a re-read!! I hope you buy it and enjoy it too. I’m reading Wild Heir next ....

A little long and slow narration

I chose this book after reading others by the author. Compared to those (the Macgregor collection) I feel like it was a bit slow and the narrators were slightly juvenile. I also felt like it was unbalanced between the male and female perspective it almost could’ve been done completely from the female perspective. I was underwhelmed and I think I’ll take a break from this author for a bit. The plot was predictable no real surprises. And for such a long but I think she could’ve created more chemistry between the two characters.

Should be rated XXX

The FxxK word and the SxxT word we’re over used. The sex was rough and explicit. Neither added to the story which was actually pretty good.

Started out strong...

The book started out strong but began to decline around half way through. The book was predictable, to easy, sweet, boring towards the middle till the end. I would not listen again nor would I recommend it to friends.

Modern day Cinderella

Maggie and Viktor's story is a modern day Cinderella story, but with enough twists and spins to keep it from being a tired overplay. The prince is charming but a bit out of his element when he meets Maggie and her cart-full of baggage.
Stephanie Wyles was an amazing first-time narrator for me and I really enjoyed the snark she brought to the story. Jeremy York was great with the hint 9f an accent and made the naive but sweet prince loveable.

A Classic Cinderella with a Swedish Hunk

The story line was great, dragged a bit but that helped build up the good parts for me. The female narration just isn't for me, her sound is robotic and at times I considered not finishing the book. I tried speeding it up a bit but that didn't help. Sad that the other books in the series are narrated by her as well, I will most likely read them for myself. If you can get past the narration give this one a chance !

Struggled with the heroine

Nice performances and story, but the heroine’s voice sounded too young for my taste and this was not helped by the character’s whiny and self-absorbed inner voice. I also found her use of profanity jarring at times. I have enjoyed some of Karina Halle’s other books more than this one.
