Summary

This Cinderella didn't plan on a prince...

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything - including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman's hotter Italian cousin.

HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal - let him show her his country and he'll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra's tourism industry. Kat agrees, but given her past and lingering distrust of men, she has one condition - absolutely no kissing.

Thanks to the claims of a jealous British noblewoman and the schemes of a meddling paparazzo, Kat's rule doesn't seem to be a problem at first. But the more Kat gets to know Nico and the people around him, the harder it is to remember her keep-your-distance plan. Should she stick to it or risk everything for a chance at happily ever after?

A good royal story

I often find American stories which include a total family cringe worthy, however Sariah Wilson has done an ok job. I still cringe at times but she is such a great author I find I can overlook those bits. Shariah is a great author and her books are worth reading.

Very, very sweet story

No surprises in this sweet Cinderella-esque story. Though I am typically drawn to a steamy romance, it is occasionally nice to break from the norm and listen to/read a lovely story sans sexual encounters. Christians would be comfortable with it, and be pleased, as well, with the religious aspect as it is inclusive of morals and the royal family’s devotion to the church. There are a few villains, but only minor angst.

Royal Date is a heartwarming story and so very apropos for the Christmas holidays.

A new Princess Diaries

I really enjoyed the story. Thought that the Narrator made Nico sound a little like Dracula but I was impressed with her abilities overall.

I struggled with this book!

I struggled with this book. The leading lady was so whiny and weak. The chemistry was not convincing. The story line was not convincing. I was like reading a fairytale that was not a good read. I hate to write a negative review. It could be because I just listened to Emma Chase's Royally Screwed series.

I only listened to the entire book because I an the type of person who has to finish what I've started.

😄💕

This is such a great story. I was really happy to see that it was finally released on Audible. I hope more titles from this author are released on Audible soon.

I have read several of the Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds stories. Some are almost as good as Ms. Wilson's original works and I am hoping that some are released on Audible as well.

Royal Date

Sigh, boy do I love a good love story, this book had it in spades. I loved the Cinderella aspect of it. It was sweet and the narrator does a fantastic job with all the characters she really brought them to life. I could see the story playing out behind my eyes.

This is a clean romance and usually I don’t like those because I feel like the story suffers and it really isn’t real. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The author does a great job with the balance of sexual tension but without going over that line.

I can’t wait to get started on Lemon’s story and her accent alone and the way she speaks I know it is going to be a great story.

To many 'southern' sayings

I enjoyed the story, however the southern colloquialisms, that weren't even any known sayings, were extreme. Many didn't make any sense at all and weren't things said by southerners. I think it was an attempt at humour that fell flat. I also found it unbelievable that the H sprained both her ankle and wrist, yet was up and walking unassisted by crutches within a couple days and even dancing. I've sprained and broken both ankles and wrists, this is not remotely possible or plausible. And where did all her bruises go? No pain or even stiffness. Pretty unrealistic.

Delightful!

This was such a wonderful book. It does have a few serious topics that are discussed, but overall it is lighthearted and kept me gripped to the end. The narration was superb. And I loved the voices she gave to each character, including the prince.

I have been in a reading “rut”
for a couple of months, and this book just pulled me out of it. Hooray!

A Very Typical Rags to Riches Story

The story plot was predictable, but good. the narration was well done. it was a nice feel good story with no sex scenes (for which I am grateful).
A good clean story.
