THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS is a USA Today Must-Read romance!
In its “Recommended Romance” column, USA Today says:
“McLinn writes a delightful, romantic tale with The Christmas Princess, which holds all the coziness of the holiday spirit. The Wedding Series continues with April and Hunter and the unusual assignment — pretending to be a princess — that stands between them. While the request may seem straightforward and doable, especially from Hunter’s perspective, the exercise of turning April into this fantasy ignites emotions and feelings that can render him speechless.
"McLinn is an expert at revealing the layers enveloping her characters. With each reveal, sometimes exquisitely subtle, we are pulled in deeper to be active participants in the emotionally charged, yet heart-melting romance. This is Happy Holidays with a grateful sigh.”
THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS
In Book 5 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's Wedding Series, the stories shift from Chicago to Washington, D.C., and wrap in a little royalty, beginning with the enchanting "The Christmas Princess."
Christmas isn’t looking so jolly for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Yes, her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them. Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.
Determination and grit have moved Hunter beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time?
King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking?
A vibration started at the base of April's skull and zinged down her spine. “You’ve been watching me.”
Hunter's eyelids lowered and rose once. That was it. One blink. Otherwise, he could have been a lump of granite — albeit a nicely shaped lump.
