Her Royal Masquerade Her Royal Romance #1 Natasha Moore

Time is running out for Prince Vittorio. His father’s health is failing and he must find a royal bride. Fast. He’s never forgotten his glimpse of a beautiful Scandinavian princess and lures her to his Mediterranean country with an invitation to his father’s birthday ball. He’d planned to propose a marriage agreement as cold as her icy reputation, but then he discovers she's as colorful and warm as a summer sunset. The heat between them flares red-hot and when she allows him to seduce her, Vittorio sees his future unfolding just as he had planned. But what he doesn’t know is that the woman in his bed is not a princess at all.

The last thing schoolteacher Mia Holmberg expects when she masquerades as her royal cousin is to be swept off her feet by a charming prince. The incredible night in Vittorio’s arms is like a fairy tale come true, but she’d never want the life of a real princess, with all its pomp and politics. Knowing they can never have a future together, she slips out of his bed and back to reality, where she belongs. 

But Vittorio discovers the deception and kidnaps Mia back to his palace, demanding she be his mistress until the real princess appears. Despite her attempts to stay aloof, Mia soon learns there’s more to the prince than arrogance and attitude, but now she’s in danger of falling in love with a man she can never have.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★

Mia Holmberg use to love standing in for her cousin, Princess Birgitte.  But now that both of them are older and no longer children, Mia is tired of playing second fiddle.  But what do you say when the Princess – yes, real royalty – asks you a favor?  You stand in again.

The Ice Princess is here and just as beautiful as Prince Vittorio remembers.  If he has to marry for duty and not for love he might as well enjoy what he has to look at, right?

As the night rolls on Prince Vittoria and “Princess Birgitte” find keeping things on a neutral ground impossible.  Mia “has not felt such an immediate attraction to a man since…since ever.”  And Prince Vittoria is finding the Ice Princess to be a lot hotter than he predicted.

This is until he discovers she is a stand in.  The Prince is so angered, he kidnaps Mia until the real princess shows herself.  Neither are prepared for what happens next.

Heroine:  Mia 4 stars
Hero: Vittorio 4 stars
Steam: 4 stars
Plot: 4 stars
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book:  Most definitely.  Great love story with some super sexy scenes with a great flow without a lot of descriptions on meaningless stuff.

Would I recommend this author:  I would read more of this author.  She has a smooth flow to her books and left me with enough information on the support characters that I would seek out spin offs of their lives or be content with my version of the future.
