A PRINCESS BY CHRISTMAS by Julia London
A Princess by Christmas Julia London, book three in her A Royal Wedding series, tells the story of Hollis Honeycutt.
She has mourned her deceased husband for three years, turned his gazette into a successful source of fashion and gossip, yet Hollis feels something is missing in her life.
Her sister lives abroad, her best friend moved to the country, and now her father started talking about also moving away. She has no idea what to what to do. She considers adding serious, investigative news, starting with a rumored coup; she accidentally overheard. Encountering a mysterious, yet dashing gentleman, who seems out of place, Hollis wonders if he might be involved in this coup.
Marek Brendan is in London to assist with negotiating a peace treaty for his country of Wesloria. When Hollis confronts Marek with her belief that he is involved with coup, he sets her straight. Marek has a secret and he has to make sure no one discovers the truth. After all, no one would ever believe he is the lost crown prince of Wesloria; except maybe Hollis.
Spending time together, searching for clues about who is behind this coup, Marek finds himself attracted to Hollis and falling for her. These two definitely burn up the sheets with their sizzling chemistry and it is probably a good thing electricity had not been invented yet as theirs could have lit up the city.
As Marek discovers the “mastermind” out to destroy the King, thanks to Hollis’ help, he discovers he needs her and the happiness and love she inspires in his life. Hollis needs to decide if she is willing to leave London and move to Wesloria to start a new life with Marek.
Ms. London wrote an emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, intelligent banter, and charming characters who provide Hollis and Marek a chance to discover a shared love, and possible future together. I highly recommend A Princess by Christmas to other readers.
