He’s a prince with a problem, she’s a commoner with a getaway plan. 

Modern-day Prince Adrian of Monaforte has a most old-fashioned problem: his demanding mother wants him wed to her best friend’s daughter, the hard-partying Serena. When his refusal falls on deaf ears, Adrian decides it’s time for him to slip away from his gilded cage and figure out his life, all on his own. As luck would have it, event photographer Emma Davison, weary of a revolving door of lost-cause men and tired of her outsider-looking-in career, is in need of her own escape clause, just in time to help a wayward prince in need. And she soon discovers that sometimes a girl’s gotta sweep a prince off his feet. 

For any girl that’s ever held out hope that some day her prince would come…or better yet, hoped that some day she’d come to him. 

What people are saying about Jenny Gardiner's books: 

"As Sweet as a song and sharp as a beak, Bite Me really soars as a memoir about family--children and husbands, feathers and fur--and our capacity to keep loving though life may occasionally bite." 
--Wade Rouse, bestselling author of At Least in the City Someone Would Hear Me Scream 

"A fun, sassy read! A cross between Erma Bombeck and Candace Bushnell, reading Jenny Gardiner is like sinking your teeth into a chocolate cupcake…you just want more." 
--Meg Cabot, NY Times bestselling author of Princess Diaries, Queen of Babble and more, on Sleeping with Ward Cleaver 

"With a strong yet delightfully vulnerable voice, food critic Abbie Jennings embarks on a soulful journey where her love for banana cream pie and disdain for ill-fitting Spanx clash in hilarious and heartbreaking ways. As her body balloons and her personal life crumbles, Abbie must face the pain and secret fears she's held inside for far too long. I cheered for her the entire way." 
--Beth Hoffman, NY Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt on Slim to None 

"Jenny Gardiner has done it again--this fun, fast-paced book is a great summer read." 
--Sarah Pekkanen, NY Times bestselling author of The Opposite of Me, on Slim to None

It's all fun and royal games until somebody's heart gets hurt 

In his line of work, royal heir Darcy Squires-Thornton has always been content playing second fiddle to close friend Prince Adrian, and happy, too, with whatever brief romantic encounters come his way. Especially one with carefree Caroline McKenzie, whose best friend is engaged to the prince. Fun-loving Caroline McKenzie's motto has always been "love the one you're with". But when the one she's no longer with is the one with whom she's fallen in love, what's a girl an ocean away to do?

SOMETHING IN THE HEIR

 

Sometimes a girl’s gotta sweep a prince off his feet…

 

He’s a prince with a problem, she’s a commoner with a getaway plan.

 

Modern-day Prince Adrian of Monaforte has a most old-fashioned problem: his demanding mother wants him wed to her best friend’s daughter, the hard-partying Serena. When his refusal falls on deaf ears, Adrian decides it’s time for him to slip away from his gilded cage and figure out his life, all on his own.

And she soon discovers that sometimes a girl’s gotta sweep a prince off his feet.

 

For any girl that’s ever held out hope that some day her prince would come…or better yet, hoped that some day she’d come to him.

 

 

HEIR TODAY GONE TOMORROW

 

It's all fun and royal games until somebody's heart gets hurt

 

In his line of work, royal heir Darcy Squires-Thornton has always been content playing second fiddle to close friend Prince Adrian, and happy, too, with whatever brief romantic encounters come his way. Especially one with carefree Caroline McKenzie, whose best friend is engaged to the prince, whose motto has always been "love the one you're with". But when the one she's no longer with is the one with whom she's fallen in love, what's a girl an ocean away to do?

 

 

 

BAD TO THE THRONE

 

Sometimes you can let your heir down a little too much…

 

When wild-child Prince Alexander goes on a naked bender in a Vegas swimming pool, cocktail waitress Andi McDonough decides to preserve a shot of those family jewels on her phone. But when she’s fired for capturing the royal treasures, she heads off to find herself. After backpacking the world-over on a dime and a prayer, she finds herself in Rome, where a chance encounter with the wayward prince only reinforces to her that Prince Zander is indeed bad to the throne. And more than likely to her fragile heart as well.

Locked Lips Sink Ships... Lady Clementine needs a getaway. Badly. The best way to get her mind off of the unexpected loss of her beloved father is to usher her best friend Pippa away to a surprise Caribbean rendezvous with Prince Christopher. It's an added bonus that she stumbles upon her own tropical fling with boat captain Sebastian, Topher's cousin. 
Sebastian Chevalier walked away from Monaforte long ago. Weary of dealing with the fallout from his parents' on again/off again union, he sought solace in the water and never looked back. And he isn't about to allow even the irresistible charm of Clementine to get in the way of his carefree existence, and readily gives her the old heave-ho.   
But can Clementine take the wind out of his footloose and fancy-free sails?

Gimme Some Sugar… 

Sawyer Patterson has never been one to care much about first impressions, except when it comes to royalty, because snagging a palace endorsement could make or break his fledgling catering business in Monaforte—the European principality where he’s settled following culinary school and an apprenticeship at a renowned French patisserie. Despite his anti-royalist upbringing, when he’s hired for a birthday party for Princess Isabella, he doubles down to ensure the birthday cake he makes for her will leave a lasting impression… 

To support her good friend Clementine’s new event planning business, Isabella Annelisa Violetta Stefania, Princess Royal of Monaforte, hires her friend to help plan an epic birthday bash for herself. The occasion is the talk of the town, and she has faith Clementine will hire only the best to pull it off. It’s bad enough when Bella's nemesis from boarding school shows up as the hired caterer, but when his cake ends up making her the laughingstock of the party, the gloves are off and she’s determined he’ll never get business in her town again..
