Rowan Palotay desperately needs to get her journalism career back on the right track. One little mistake ruined her credibility, but now she is working at a small local paper in Marietta in order to correct the wrongs of the past and make it back on top of her field. Enter Prince Theodore Chenery, in town to meet his grandparents when he stumbled upon Rowan and her dogs. Theirs was a really adorable meet-cute except Rowan found it immeasurably embarrassing and she hopes to rectify it. Robin Bielman’s story, Once Upon A Royal Romance was the perfect holiday romance. It was cute and fun, romantic and just a really great time for a few hours.
Prince Theo was just everything. He was handsome and funny and more than a little flirtatious despite his staid, sometimes rigid demeanor. What I love most about what Robin Bielman did with this story was the conflict. There wasn’t much in terms of the attraction between Theo and Rowan but their lives headed in totally different directions—he has a throne to ascend to and a country to run while she is a simple hometown girl trying to get her career back on track—which would make their romance pretty much impossible. While in so many ways this was a typical romance, there were a few hidden layers that took it deeper and made this Christmas gem a really fun read.
Once Upon A Royal Christmas is the perfect read to keep a smile on your face and a stirring in your heart.
