Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn't bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn't what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.
There's a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they've traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven't chopped anyone's head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
Nicholas was the first prince of Wessco, very attractive and well known. He loved to have fun and had no intention to settle down. Unfortunately for him, he had to fulfil his duties soon and bring back his brother from New York. There he met Olivia, a born and raised New Yorker who was running the family coffee shop. He made a very bad first impression but he changed it quickly. They started spending time together and were having so much fun. What they didn't expect was to have feelings for each other as well, which was a big problem since this fling had to end soon. Through this relationship, Nicholas had the chance to be normal and Olivia to act like a girl her age and visit another place. When they were alone in Wessco everything was magical but his world was cruel for an innocent girl like Liv. So, in the end, Nicholas has to choose between the crown and the girl he loved.
A true romance novel with royal families and poor honest people. There is pure love, hate, intrigue, funny incidents, heartbreaking moments and a beautiful happy ending. The characters are unique and exquisite, some of them will surprise you in a good way. For me, it's a five-star book.
My favourite line:
“Always a pleasure, Littlecock.”
That’s not what she said. Ever.
