She didn’t see her own beauty…

To retain the throne he’s sacrificed everything for, Alek must choose a bride.

4.5 Stars 

This is a book in the Once Upon a Temptation Series by Natalie Anderson.

Basic premise: A prince asks his sister’s assistant to be his fake wife in order to appease the royal rules of his rein. It is a deal for one year. But will they be able to pull off such a scam or is this really a love match they don’t see coming?

This is one of those books where you just can’t look away. Hester is the shy assistant who is made an offer she can’t refuse. You know that something wonderful is going to happen as soon as Alek has to refrain from seeing other women. And truthfully, that is what he probably needed all along. If he would have given more attention to his relationships and not just went straight to bed, he might have found love earlier.

Great story. I was mesmerized.

If you are looking for a good romance book, definitely check this one out.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
