"His Jingle Bell Princess" by Barbara Dunlop is a sweet and heartwarming romance. This is Crown Princess Jasmine Arcules and Sam Cutler's story. Princess Jasmine finds herself stranded in the little town of Tucker, Maine during a blizzard. She is going through some restless times in her life so this may end up being a good time for her to take a break from her rigid duties. Sam and his precious twin girls have lived with his mother in-law since the death of his wife two years ago. The girls want to go back to their home but Sam keeps saying that they can't move back in until he finishes renovations on it. Sam is dreading Christmas time since this was his wife's favorite time of year and when she died. Princess Jasmine ends up staying with Sam's family. No one knows that she is a princess. For the first time in Jasmine's life she gets to experience life as a normal person. Jasmine and Sam don't hit it off at first but as time goes on they end up helping each other. There is an attraction between them but in reality she is a princess and has duties that she must fulfill and Sam is still having trouble moving on since his wife's death. I fell in love with Sam and Jasmine's characters. The reader could feel Sam's pain and Jasmine's loneliness but could also feel their emotions as they began to change. The twins were great too. This is a beautiful feel good romantic read. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Jasmine Arcelus was a Princess and in one months time on her birthday she would become Princess Royal. But Jasmine had a problem she froze when she was to give a speech such as the one she was suppose to give in NYC to a diplomatic audience. Jasmine had not said a word and she knew her father would be very unhappy with her when she returned Vollan. The private plane had a repair that needed to be done, it wouldn’t take long but had to be done so the plane stopped at Tucker, Maine. Jasmine had said she was going to lay down there was a bedroom aboard the plane but instead decided a quick walk and fresh air would help more so Jasmine manages to get off the plane and isn’t seen. No one had checked for her and when she went in the airport her plane had already taken off and because of weather the airplane could not return right away. So Jasmine was stuck in Tucker until the blizzard cleared up/ A woman named Belle toke pity on Jasmine and toke Jasmine to her home. Belle’s son in law and twin granddaughters also lived with her as Sam her son in law had been widowed . It had almost been two years but Sam hadn’t healed yet Sam and Kara had been HS sweethearts and had Sophie and Amelia who were nine. Sam had a problem getting through Christmas and was already dreading this holiday season but he must try to be cheerful for his girls. Sam was a carpenter and had plenty of work and could afford to take on help but refused he said he rather work by himself and he wanted to be left alone. Sam just ready to move on yet and resented anyone trying to help him get on with his life as he felt it was his fault that Kara was now gone. Brock was Sam’s best friend and he wanted to see Sam start living again. Sam could not understand why he was reacting to Jasmine he felt like he had no right to react to someone else.So then Sam was pretty rude to Jasmine until Belle heard him and said something to him.Sam offered Jasmine some cold pizza and could not believe she had never had any. Jasmine wasn’t sure how much she should reveal about her self and her father and her identity. She did say she was from Vollen and her father was well known and the had land that had been passed down. But not her father was king and she was to someday be queen. Sam was embarrassed when Belle said something with the way he was talking to Jasmine and he did apologize. Jasmine then said she should apologize as she was intruding on his family. Jasmine decided she would fins a hotel the next day if she could. Jasmine had lost her mom when she was six years old and her heart went out to Sophie and Amelia. Jasmine was attracted to Sam and was fighting it. I like this story. In the beginning this story was a little slow but it does pick up and I ended up really liking this story. The plot was very good, the characters were great especially Amelia and Sophie they really add to this story. I like how Jasmine got to lead a normal life even if only for a little while but also was one of the reasons Sam was starting to heal and she wanted to help if she could. Sam also knew he had to try to do better for his girls. I absolutely loved how the ending worked and I recommend.

I loved this story. A princess stranded by a blizzard hides her true identity and gets to be "normal" with a family in the weeks leading up to Christmas. The family is healing from a loss, and this stranger sure mixes things up for them. I loved Sam and Jasmine so much. Belle was great, and the twins were just adorable. I could almost picture them running around in the snow and playing. This was a very sweet and heartwarming story, and that little town really showed the best in people.

Princess Jasmine Arcelus knows that being a princess is both difficult and lonely. She's always surrounded by guards and must always follow protocol. On a layover for a plane repair, she's tempted to take a walk in the snow and enjoy the peace and solitude. When she gets back her plane has left. Now she's stranded in Tucker, Maine in a crippling blizzard. She has no money and no cell phone. What happens next is both touching and romantic. Jasmine becomes the guest of Belle Zachary, her son-in-law, and his twins. Sam Cutler lost his wife in an accident which happened at Christmas. He feels guilty and the holidays make it worse. Sam resents Jasmine. Her presence awakens him from his guilt. Jasmine with her innocence of the real world is a breath of fresh air. Her kindness helps the girls enjoy the holidays. Seeing Jasmine and Sam's reaction to each other was amazing. I wanted a HEA. I just wasn't sure how a Royal princess would fit into a small New England town with a carpenter but Barbara Dunlop didn't disappoint me. The magic of the holidays make the perfect background for this love story. The characters are likeable, the dialogue is charming and the romance tender. His Jingle Bell Princess is a perfect holiday treat.

I would say 3 1/2 stars. The fairy tale part of this story captivated me and how the dynamics of the people's past helped each other to grow, with some realism, but I was disappointed in the ending. I really wanted it to go the other way. Receive an arc for an honest and fair review.

Sam Cutler has only loved one woman in life and he still grieves for her. Princess Jasmine Arcelus has never even been kissed. While her flight crew assumed Jasmine was asleep, they left the airport before the blizzard hit Tucker, Maine. But Jasmine wasn't sleeping on the plane. She had gone for a walk in the woods by herself. When she returned to the airport, she was surprised to find out her plane left without her. Sam hasn't been interested in anything since he lost his wife in a car accident two years ago. He doesn’t care about Christmas or work. He hasn't spent time with his friends and he hasn't even moved back home yet. He is still living at his mother-in-law's house with his twin daughters. When Belle meets Jasmine at the airport and finds out she has been left behind, she brings her home to stay until her plane can come back for her. Sam starts becoming attracted to Jasmine. He hasn’t felt this way about a woman in a very long time. Jasmine discovers feelings towards Sam that she has never experienced before. But she knows nothing came happen. She has certain standards she is expected to live up to and falling in love with just anyone isn't in the plans. Will Jasmine and Sam give into the feelings they have for each other, or will Jasmine be forced to forget about Sam when the time comes for her to return to Vollan? This is a heartwarming and a very clean romance novella that can be read in one sitting. Sam’s rediscovering love and Jasmine finding love for the first time was fun to read about. Sam’s little girls stole the scenes in some parts and made it more realistic. I just wish the story would have been a bit longer as it seemed to wrap up too fast for me.

What a fun, wonderful read! A princess stranded in the middle of a small town during a snowstorm no less. Jasmine will have an impact on one small family that will change their lives forever. Sam and his twin daughters are making it through each day but Sam is such a great character and you can feel that he wants to start living again but can't quite make himself do it. This one is wonderfully done and a perfect read to get you into the spirit of the holidays. I highly recommend this one.

I enjoyed this story as it is my first Christmas book of the season. Princess Jasmine while wanting alone time discovers that she got it, just not the way that she planned it. Luckily, she is taken in and given shelter. She doesn't realize the family dynamics until shes knee deep in it and doesn't want to be anywhere else. This holiday story will warm your heart on a chilly night. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Sam and Jasmine are about to discover that miracles happen in the strangest ways. Can a misplaced princess and a grieving single dad be the answer to a prayer? His Jingle Bell Princess shows how being in the wrong place at the right time can have lasting benefits. Jasmine is a princess with an attitude that brighten up the darkest night, but lacks confidence in her abilities as a royal. Sam is a man stuck in the past. Tragedy left him a single father of twin girls but it also left him with a shattered heart and broken dreams. When the royal and the widower cross paths, tempers rage, hormones flare and the healing begins. Can this mismatched twosome, be a perfect pair? Jasmine and Sam with help of Ms. Dunlop spin a tale of hope, second chances and the powerful of family in this energetic, light - hearted holiday read.
