I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.

Series: Princesses of Rydiania #3

In the final Princesses of Rydiania story by Jennifer Faye, a princess and a CEO know a festive fling is completely off-limits…but succumbing to desire is far too tempting!

Breaking the rules…until Christmas!

Princess Gisella’s fundraising gala must be a success. It will prove she’s capable of taking the throne she was never meant to ascend. Anxious and exhausted, she’s about to fire her New York PR firm…before she meets high-flying CEO Silas. Gisella’s duty-bound to marry royalty, while Silas can’t afford distractions, so a fling is completely forbidden. But their intense connection blurs the lines of tradition…


Emotional and heartfelt! Jennifer Faye delivers a satisfying conclusion to her Princesses of Rydiania series that brings us Gisella’s story. I liked her and Silas together quite a bit, but felt like the development of them as an actual couple was a bit lacking and felt rushed. As a whole I loved the series and really enjoyed getting to know this family. Would have liked to see the entire fam come together in the end as well.

I recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that loves a modern day royal romance that brings royals and commoners together even when it’s not necessarily allowed. The characters are intriguing and their love rewarding.

It’s not every day you meet a man at the bar, stare at him for hours, and then right when you decide to make a move, he gets up to leave. Worse, when you follow him outside, you see him completely change his appearance by shucking a wig and a button down shirt, dropping them into the nearest trash can.

When Crimson looks around to see who noticed the complete one-eighty that’s just taken place, not a single person notices or cares. When she looks back, he’s gone.

Dejected, she leaves, thinking maybe she’d hallucinated and made the whole night up.

Only, just as she passes a dark alley, she’s taken. Literally and figuratively.

That’s the night that Winston Cyrus Osborn, III walks into her life.


Crimson is the worst type of woman.

She’s curious.

And curiosity kills the cat in his line of work.

With nothing else left to lose, he’s set to rid this world of the filth that infests it. And in doing that, he’s made a lot of enemies that would like nothing better than to ruin him and every single person he cares about.

At every turn, she’s there, insinuating herself into his life. And despite his attempts to keep her at arm’s length, she blows past every single barrier he erects.

He should really stay away.

He should also make sure that she stays out of his business.

Yet, he keeps letting her in. And she keeps reminding him why he wants her to stay.


Crimson meets her match and gets more than she bargained for! I’m really enjoying Lani Lynn Vale’s quirky Welcome to the Circus series. It’s filled with a really unorthodox group of siblings that worm their way more and more into the reader’s heart with each new book and there’s always hints of danger and intrigue weaved throughout. Crimson and Winston really caught my attention. He’s secretive and she’s out to get answers … and the answers she uncovers are more than she ever would have expected.

Highly intense emotional scenes are a given with this series, but the love each sibling is finding is healing them one step at a time. I loved Winston so hard! Highly recommend this series as a whole.

Welcome to Fort Lauderdale… where the days are hot and the Knights are hotter!

The last thing I need under my roof is a matchmaker… but that’s exactly what’s going to happen if my grandmother moves from Slovakia to Fort Lauderdale to live with me. She says it’s because she’s lonely, but I know better. She’s planning to find me a wife.

The problem is, I already have my eye on someone: my teammate’s sister. She’s gorgeous, sexy—and not staying in Florida. But now that I’ve had a taste, I don’t want her to leave. And I don’t know how to ask her to stay without risking it all.

I ran away when I was sixteen and I’ve never stopped. From the abuse of my childhood to the trauma of my failed marriage, it’s easier to keep moving. Until the search for my brother leads me to Fort Lauderdale.

Once I’m there I find a different kind of family—his team. Especially Johan. My brother warned everyone I’m off limits, but the Slovak hunk is known for breaking the rules both on and off the ice.

I just hope he doesn’t break my heart.


Instant sex appeal leads to the connection of a lifetime! The seventh book in Kat Mizera’s endearing Lauderdale Knights hockey series is pulling on our heart strings as Decker’s sister makes a surprise visit to town and secretly falls for a teammate.

Sloane is a complex character. She’s sweet and sincere but has a ton of baggage that she hasn’t worked through yet, and it makes her push Johan away more than I really liked. He was a total sweetheart and I wanted to see her embrace him as wholeheartedly as he did her.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a close knit group of hockey teammates that have each other’s backs on and off the ice as each one falls hard when they meet “the one”.
