Didn't like this one.
I chose to listen to this one because I enjoy this author and because it is a holiday story. I wasn't enjoying it, but I stuck with it, hoping it would get better; I've had great luck with this author in the past. But it just didn't redeem itself and I didn't really enjoy it much at all. The romance felt unrealistic and just wasn't romantic. I understand where the author was going with these characters-an arranged-type marriage between a royal and woman that used to be part of a royal family, but I just couldn't get past either character's personality and their constant fighting. I've read other Harlequin Presents stories that were enjoyable but this one just was not.
Even though I didn't care for the story, the narrator did a nice job.
