Overview

Lili knows she shouldn’t accept a lift from a stranger, but as usual, she leaps from one disaster to another. The consequence is being stuck in the middle of a snowy nowhere wearing next to nothing, and this time, being unprepared looks likely to kill her.

Grant lives in an isolated cabin for a reason. He’s prepared for almost every eventuality. The last thing he wants is some needy person interfering with his ordered life. When he gets into bed with a woman he rescued from certain death—just to warm her up, of course—Grant discovers something else he’s not prepared for. His heart opening.

A match made in heaven, until secrets come knocking. Lili is not just a simple woman in need of shelter, and unless she can survive dealing with her background, it doesn’t seem possible the happiness that’s fallen out of a blizzard can heal Grant’s own past.

Meet the Author

Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

She writes contemporary and paranormal erotic romance and dark suspense stories.

    Lili is a princess whose whole life has been controlled by her p

    Lili is a princess whose whole life has been controlled by her parents and fiance. Tired of being controlled and fearful of her abusive fiance, Lili runs away by hitching a ride with a trucker. When the trucker tries to rape Lili as payment for her ride, Lili fights him off and is left stranded half dressed and with no money in a snowstorm on the side of the road.




    Grant Houston is a reclusive author and prepper, who left his past life behind to live in a secluded cabin in the  middle of the woods of Wyoming with a tame wolf named Shadow. Carrying emotional scars from his past, Grant is prepared for any traumatic event, except meeting a half-naked girl stranded on the side of a road in a snowstorm.




    Grant rescues Lili and takes her back to his cabin. They are complete opposites, but have similarities as both suffer from emotional pasts. Lili is looking for her Prince Charming, while Grant is afraid to risk loving and losing someone again. As they get to know each other, they overcome obstacles that bring them together under the healing power of love.




    The Princess And The Prepper is a short novella that provides the reader with a steamy modern day fairytale where the princess is rescued by her prince. Author Barbara Elsborg weaves a dramatic tale of love, loss and second chances. Written in the third person narrative, the author brings together two people with past emotional baggage, who seek comfort in each other's arms through the healing power of love. The storyline is full of emotional upheaval, drama, humor and steamy sex that draws the reader in as Lili and Grant's story unfolds. You can't help but feel for both Lili and Grant as you learn about their traumatic and emotional pasts, but their coming together makes up for it with some pretty sigh worthy steamy love scenes. From beginning to end, The Princess And The Prepper will engage the reader to cheer on Lili and Grant, hoping for a wonderful happy ending that will leave a smile on their face.




    The Princess And The Prepper is a thoroughly enjoyable erotic romance novella that weaves a deeply satisfying emotional tale of love, loss, and second chances.

    The Princess and The Prepper is a new twist on the finding your

    The Princess and The Prepper is a new twist on the finding your prince charming. When Princess Lili finally gets up the nerve to escape her abusive fiance she jumps out of the frying pan into the fire, that is until she is rescued by Grant and his semi-tame wolf. Grant has isolated himself, he has had some personal tragedy and has hidden away from family, friends and life in his isolated cabin, he doesn't want the disruption that saving Lili will bring but he sure can't just let her die in the snow.




    Ms. Elsborg is able with The Princess and The Prepper to take a novella length story and tell a rich and full tale of love, loss, abandonment and redemption. We are treated to likable and identifiable characters that don't fit your everyday romance tale.
    The Princess and The Prepper gives us the sexual tension and hot sexy scenes we crave along with a bit of comic relief and even family healing all packed into a read in an afternoon length book.




    I would love to see future stories in this same town along this same story line and would love to catch a glimpse of what happens with Lili and Grant's relationship down the road.  




    I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Intensely Emotional, Heartwarming With a Bit of Steaminess

    This is ultimately a story about loss and two people recovering from their losses through the healing power of love. These are likable people who have gone through horrendous experiences and grab on to the one moment of happiness that presents itself. They appear opposites at first but their mutual pain brings them together in a night of steaminess that leads to an unexpected, yet completely satisfying conclusion.

    Lili was the child her parents never really wanted. She never lived up to their expectations no matter how hard they tried to mold her into the perfect Princess. She had dreams, but through her parent's machinations, those dreams have continued to go unfulfilled. She's now trapped in a nightmare of physical and emotional abuse from which a haphazard plunge into a dark and snowy night seems a better alternative. This one moment of bravery after years of accepting the abuse could be her final act, but the stranger who rescues her epitomizes her dream and she'll do anything to stay with him....even if it means learning how to cook and make a decent cup of coffee.

    Grant prides himself on being prepared for everything but finds himself uncertain in how to deal with a pampered Princess who isn't what she appears. He's been hiding out after the loss of his family with only a wolf for company. He doesn't like the chaos she brings with her to his quiet life or lonely heart but he can't turn away a damsel in distress. She brings a smile to his face and forces him to deal with his demons. He's scared of being forced into living again but knows he can't let the bit of light she's brought to his darkness go no matter how different they appear.

    This story is a modern-day fairytale where the Princess is rescued by the handsome hero. This hero is slightly tarnished though and the Princess isn't picture perfect. Their path to a HEA starts out steamy with a bit of desperation attached to it and leads into an entire hometown standing up for what's right in a completely heartwarming conclusion. Ms. Elsborg is a master at pulling at the reader's heart strings and this book once again leaves me believing in fairytales and her on my must read list.

    Ok but not great

    ## I thought this was just an OK read but the characters didn't get to know eachother very well. I do not like stories that involve dead wives nor do I like weak heroines. But it wasn't the worst I've read.
