After being sacked from her job on the gossip magazine Celebrity, Ally Parker is forced to return home to Combe St. Philip with her tail between her legs. She is given a fresh start when her childhood friend, Hope, asks her to work PR for Hope’s marriage to Prince Jonas of San Michele.
When Count Fredrik Jensson, head of security for the royal family, arrives to check out the village, he makes it clear that her past employment makes her unfit for the role. The fact that there’s a sizzle between them from the moment they meet only makes everything worse.
Forced together on a trip to San Michele for the official announcement of the wedding, their sizzle flares into an inferno. However, their night of passion sours when he sees her with her ex-boss. Believing that Ally is about to buy back her job with wedding secrets, Fredrik turns back to ice. What will it take to see the person she truly is and a thaw to set in?
After The Prince’s Bride, I was totally into the San Michele court. So a story about Fredrik, the head of security and Ally, lifelong BFF of Hope is too good to pass up. And indeed, we get to swoon over Fredrik. The upper stiff security guy and the easygoing gossip girl. What can I say: opposites attract. And they do. But still they distrust each other and they misinterpret situations.
Liz Fielding does an excellent job in giving the story (and especially Fredrik) multiple layers and twists and turns. So the book is very refreshing, swoon worthy and a great read. Warms your heart and keeps the pages turning.
So four out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc. And of course, I’ll be looking out for the other parts of this series Royal Wedding Invitations.
