A Princess for a Few Weeks …

The coming Christmas season isn’t looking great for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Certainly 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, D.C., 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. 

This is the last assignment Hunter would pick. Determination and grit have moved him 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? Wouldn’t it be delightful if he could give April a Christmas gift she will never forget …

                             … Her Prince for a Lifetime

                

The Christmas Princess, Book 5 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's The Wedding Series, is a moving, passionate contemporary romantic comedy that will captivate fans of Bella Andre, Susan Mallery and Sarah Wilson.
