Simone left the small country of Florena years ago and has only been back a handful of times for quick family visits. She’s made a life for herself in Paris, working in a bookshop she hopes to eventually purchase from the owner. She certainly doesn’t expect to see Ed, better known as Prince Edouard of Florena, to show up in her small shop, nor for him to ask for her help hiding from the press. Despite being close as youngsters, they haven’t seen each other in years. But the second Ed lands in Paris, he knows he’ll find safety and solace in Simone. Laying eyes on her for the first time in years, he may have found more than just friendship. The Playboy Prince might finally know what it means to fall in love. This friends-to-lovers royal romance from Lewis (Back in the Greek Tycoon’s World) lets readers live vicariously through Simone’s fairy-tale happily-ever -after.
VERDICT A charming love story with enough palace intrigue and secrets to keep readers eager to turn the page.
