 Sum It Up!What a pleasant read and a believable modern day fairy tale!

If Amy Wilde’s new boyfriend, Leo, treats her like a queen, that’s because he’s secretly a prince himself: Leopold William Victor Wolfsburg of Nirona, the ninth most eligible royal bachelor in the world. Amy soon discovers that dating an heir to a throne has many charms—intimate alfresco dinners, glittering galas, and, for a girl who lives in jeans and wellies, a dazzling new wardrobe with tiaras to match. But there are also drawbacks: imagine the anxiety of meeting your boyfriend’s parents multiplied by a factor of “riding in a private jet,” “staying in a castle,” and “discussing the line of succession over lunch.” Not to mention the sudden press interest in your very un-royal family. When an unexpected turn of events pushes Leo closer to the throne, the Wolfsburgs decide to step up Amy’s transformation from down-to-earth gardener to perfectly polished princess-in-waiting. Amy would do anything for Leo, but is finding her Prince Charming worth the price of losing herself? (Goodreads)


What a pleasant read and a believable modern day fairy tale! Hester Browne takes readers on a happy ride as Amy transforms into a princess while trying to hang on to her gardening business, friends, and her own identity. The book was a humorous read with modern references but really told the story of what is most important in life and what really matters. While Amy's dreams of Prince Charming are coming true...can she hold on to herself in the process? Leo is a great hero who is charming and kind and the kind of man we all would love...a true prince charming.

This is not a steamy, hot, sexy novel but more of a love story with dating and courting, picnics and dinner parties! It truly showcases old fashioned values of honor, integrity, friendship, and love. I would recommend this book to those readers who enjoy sweet romances with happy endings!

  1. For example, it can be tempting to request $10,000 if the sum needed was only $8,000 pay day loans uk since i can't refer to it human instinct, i will refer to it as american nature.
