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.

Her Royal Romance book #1 I enjoyed this love story. As first in the series, we are introduced to Prince Vittorio. His father’s health is failing and so he must find a royal bride soon! He has only had a glimpse of a beautiful Scandinavian princess, Brigitte of Stagaland and lures her to his Mediterranean country. His plan was to propose a marriage agreement to the “Ice Princess” as she is called. Mia Holmberg was Brigitte’s cousin and they looked so much alike that Mia has pretended to be Brigitte on many occasions and the Masquerade ball seemed the perfect plan since everyone must wear a mask. When Prince Vittorio meets the Ice Princess, he is surprised that she is warm and colorful. They both feel the hot chemistry and connection between them and she allows him to seduce her. He feels that perhaps this did not have to be a marriage of convenience. What will the Prince do when he finds out that Mia has deceived him? Well, of course, he kidnaps her. But, he only wanted her as his mistress because she was not a princess. Find out what happens to the Prince and Mia. You won’t regret it.
Her Royal Masquerade is a fun escapist read. A great little romance that is perfect for an afternoon at the beach or pool. One of the best parts of this book was the look-a-like cousins who sometimes exchange places. It reminded me of the Patty Duke Show! It also reminded me a bit of Cinderella--the poor, hardworking family member who lives in the shadows but is ultimately acknowledged by Prince Charming. A delight for fans of traditional romance with a little spice.
Her Royal Masquerade,Her Royal Romance 1Natasha Moore Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews So, I have a sneaky enjoyment sometimes of simple rags to riches love stories. This looked fun. Vittorio, I felt he was out of line in his actions to Mia. Yes she did deceive him in not telling him who she really was but...surely it was the person he made love to that mattered, not the fact that he thought it was someone else? After all she wasn't to know what he was planning for her cousin, and he didn't tell her. Then it all comes out, and poor Mia gets put in a terrible position. Its either admit to everyone what she and her cousin have done – and who knows what consequences that will result in, Vittorio's father could cause great problems if he wanted. Her only other choice is to be his mistress til her cousin gets in touch...and she's such a playgirl selfish person that could be ages. And it is, long enough for Vittorio to really feel strongly about Mia. Mia, she was such a doormat at times. I couldn't understand why she'd agreed to swap places in the first instance, although her cousin was very used to being manipulative, but then when she went along with Vittorio's suggestions, knowing how she'd be viewed back home, I felt she needed to get a back bone and stand up for herself. Still, if she did where would that leave the book :-) Overall it was an ok read, not bad, not great either though for me. I like my heroines to be a bit more self confident, to stand up for themselves not roll over and give in. Stars: three. ARC supplied via Netgalley
