I do not typically like the princess fantasy that most girls have at one point or another. I usually stay far, far away from books that have royalty in them. Because they're cheesy, stereotypical, and everything that I really hate.
And yet, I bought this book. I read the description and I took a chance. And you know what? I freaking loved this book. It is completely different from the kind of stuff I like, but still utterly amazing.
Sam is a girl who lost her mother and is on her way to losing her father. She's in college, earning her master's degree in wildlife biology. She loves her birds. And then she's invited to dinner with a duchess. Oh course, she thinks that the duchess is going to donate to the bird program.
Only, the duchess tells Sam some pretty big news, and it has nothing to do with the bird program at the raptor center. Oh, and lets not forget the dashing young prince Alex. Yummy. The heat between those two is palpable.
This is a book I would normally scoff at. But I loved it. And I plan on reading it again and again. I love the cover. I love the characters. I love the chemistry between Alex and Sam. I love the story and the craziness that comes with it. I think that this book is fabulous.

Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.
Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.
While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders
