Synopsis: She's discovered his secret.
Now the trouble really begins...
After three years of mourning—and turning her dear deceased husband's gazette into the ton's sauciest source of fashion and gossip—Hollis Honeycutt feels her life has been strangely bereft of late... Her sister is living abroad, and her best friend moved to the country. What must a young widow of rank and reputation do? Why, transform her society gossip sheets into serious investigative news, starting with a rumored coup...and the rather dashing, mysterious gentleman whom Hollis suspects might be the villain of her first real story, and she is the only one who can write it.
Marek Brendan is investigating terrible rumors of treachery and treason that threaten his home country of Wesloria, but he must proceed with caution. No one can discover the truth. After all, who would ever believe he is Wesloria's lost crown prince? Only Hollis Honeycutt's cerulean-blue eyes seem to know more than she's letting on—and worse, Marek can't seem to resist her curious charms. But even as betrayal threatens a nation and a throne, nothing is quite so dangerous as the lovely young widow who's determined to find the truth...and a prince of her own. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Oh what a fun story! This is the third book in the Royal Wedding Series, I had not read the previous two before going into this one. I do think it's probably smart to start at the beginning of the series. I think it would have helped me knowing a little more backstory and characters. Even with me being a little in the dark, I enjoyed myself while reading this book. I really liked our characters of Hollis and Marek. I loved the idea of an undercover prince. I liked that Hollis is doing what she wants to her late husband's paper. I also kind of enjoyed that Hollis was a widow, because that meant she had more freedom then other young women of the time.
I enjoyed watching Marek and Hollis's romance unfold. They definitely are at odds through parts of the story.
I also really enjoyed the Christmas vibes. It's a great one to get you in the holiday season.
I had a good time reading A Princess by Christmas by Julia London. It was cute, sweet, and full of good romantic tension. I think I'll go back and read the first two books of the series so I can know all the details that I was missing.
