Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.


My Review:
What a really great read! I'm always a huge fan of reading a nice contemporary read..especially one with royalty.

What I really liked about this book definitely was the main character Samantha Rosseau. She definitely is a down to earth character which I really liked. It was also nice to see her develop throughout the novel, especially when she finds out she is a heiress. I also liked how she still kept being true to herself even when she gained all this wealth and fame. The relationship with Alex also was so refreshing and fun! It was nice to see them progress throughout the novel and I think they are a really great couple.

I did think that the plot of the book was a little bit rushed..especially the beginning. I do kinda wish that things were a little bit slower in the novel and we were given a little bit more details. Overall I thought the plot development was great and it was nice to learn more about Lilaria!

In the end, I really enjoyed this novel! It was fun read and I highly recommend you guys check it out this summer.

My Rating:


  1. This sounds like a fun read! I love the 'didn't know she was royalty' trope. :D Great review!

  2. Great review. I love fun and refreshing relationships :) Maybe I'll read this one over the summer.

  3. Yay! I LOVED this book! I couldn't stop thinking about it for days after I read it! Sam was such a fun character and oh Alex. What a guy. :D
