I was born the oldest princess of a tiny country in the Alps, which means my future has been planned out for me since I was an infant. I was supposed to marry a rich, arrogant stranger to help restore the royal bank accounts, but I decided to go to college in the States instead. It was the one act of rebellion in my very sheltered life.

That's how I met Jack Watson. He lives next door, and he's the nicest, sexiest guy I've ever known. My time here is almost over, though. Soon I have to go back home and be the daughter my family and country expects. So there's no sense in letting Jack seduce me with his slow smile, his skillful hands, and his husky drawl.

Even if I was allowed to have him for a boyfriend, Jack hates formal occasions, pretentious people, and being the center of attention. He'd never hook up with a princess.

Which is why he can never know who I am.

## SHORT. 88 pages. The hero was scrumptious and the story was cute, albeit predictable. The heroine's mother was a nightmare, as was her sister. I didn't like the time jumping...Three weeks later, etc because we don't get to experience the h/h getting to know each other. Needed to be about 50 pages longer. 3 stars.

In all my little girl dreams, it was the guy next door. (Unfortunately, there wasn't actually a guy next door.) Amalie doesn't technically dream of him. She actually avoids him like the plague. Driven by the time constrictions of her life, she has avoided relationships until now. Friends... But then it doesn't remain that way. It's a sweet story that has a tinge of heat. But it definitely hooks you on the developments of book two...

Good, fictional read The story was short but the author ended it without any cliffhangers or loose ends. Yes, it could have been longer and yet, it was still cute and sweet. The only surprise, for me, came when the boy next door did not turn out to be extremely rich thus providing much needed money into the family coffers..

A Princess Next Door is the first of a series featuring the Rothman royal family, rulers of a small Alpine country bordering Switzerland and France. Amalie is studying art in Minneapolis to the chagrin of her mother who wanted her daughter to follow the royal tradition of arranged marriages and had picked out a suitable partner. But Amalie refused, and set off to study in America. Still she feels the weight of her royal duties and isn't sure for how long she can put her mother off. It's not helped that her sexy and kind and handsome (and did I mention sexy?) neighbour Jack keeps showing his interest. Even knowing she'll be leaving in a few short weeks, Amalie finally accedes to his friendly request for a pizza dinner at his apartment and for a little while is able to let go of the pressure of being a princess in hiding. When their friendship moves forward, they agree it'll just be a casual arrangement without strings. Sex with Jack is fun and exciting and Amalie knows she's going to miss him terribly when she moves back home. She's been keeping the secret of her true identity from him but it's getting more and more difficult, especially with the paparazzi having finally noticed her. As they spend more time together, their feelings become stronger. When Jack finds out the truth of her heritage, will he still be interested in a relationship? And will Amalie get to choose her own future? What a fun story! It takes a fictional royal family and imbues in them the characteristics we've come to expect from people in that position - a sense of duty, a strong family history, a pleasant public persona, etc. While the main focus is on Amalie and her struggles to do what is right for her versus what is right for her family and kingdom, we also get an introduction to her siblings and parents. They each have an important part to play in Amalie's life and this affects her decisions. But she stuck to her guns when it came to going off to university, and doesn't regret that decision even though it caused stress in her relationship with both her mother and her closest sister Victoria. Jack runs a successful sporting goods company and is in his early thirties (while Amalie is 24). The age difference isn't really noticeable as Amalie has had a very different upbringing than other women and had expected to be married off to an older man. He's a hard working professional who generally leaves the office at work and takes things casually at home. Public situations aren't his favorite but they are part of his job. Amalie expects that once he finds out who she is, the public expectations of her position will put him off entirely and she'll lose his friendship and any chance at a more serious relationship. Their easy camaraderie is bound to change but in the end, the decisions that are made give proof to the fantasy that a royal and a commoner can have a happy ending. It's a lighthearted read with some sexy scenes and I look forward to reading more in the series.

This is the first book of the Rothman series, about the Royal family of Villemont. Amalie Rothman is a princess, but most of all she is a young lady who only wants to study art and enjoy herself before taking a more active part in the Royal family. She has been living in the States for a while and meet her neighbor Jack Watson. Jack is older, a business man and a really great guy. This book is about Amalie and Jack finding a middle ground to be together with all their responsibilities, different life and goals. They love each other, but their worlds are so different. This book is great and is all about acceptance. Looking forward to the others!
