Overview

It was his pheromones that did it. With one sniff, sex researcher Leigh Fromm recognizes that any offspring she might have with the mysterious stranger would have a better-than-average chance of surviving any number of impending pandemics.

But when Leigh finds out that the handsome "someone" at her great aunt's wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts-not that she was intending to sleep with the guy. The royal house of Habsburg was once completely inbred, insanity and impotency among the highlights of their genetic pedigree. (The extreme "bulldog underbite" that plagued them wasn't called the Habsburg Jaw for nothing.)

It doesn't matter that his family hasn't sat on a throne (other than the ones in their Toilette) since 1918, or that Austria is now a parliamentary democracy. Their lives couldn't be more different: Roman is routinely mobbed by paparazzi in Europe. Leigh is regularly mocked for having the social skills of a potted plant. Even if she suddenly developed grace, charm and a pedigree that would withstand the scrutiny of the press and his family, what exactly is she supposed to do with this would-have-been king of Austria who is in self-imposed exile in Denver, Colorado?

I don't mind admitting that I'm an unabashed fan of romantic comedies. Good ones are hard to find, but when you do it's a joy. Elle Lothlorien's debut novel, The Frog Prince, is a good one.

Meet the Author

An early mid-life crisis propelled Elle Lothlorien to take a Lindy Hop swing dance class at a Denver bar. Three years (and a few ankle and knee braces) later she does a mad Charleston and can pancake like nobody's business.

A "military brat," Elle was born in Germany and spent her childhood in such far-flung places as Puerto Rico, Charleston, S.C., Italy, and Washington D.C. Sadly, the only language she ever became semi-fluent in is English.

Elle currently lives in Denver. She keeps a miniature dachshund around the house to provide comic relief.

This book really has no story or character development. The conversations between the characters are so boring, but I kept forcing myself to read because there were some raving reviews by others. I ask all of you, did we read the same book? It got so bad that I started to skim half way through the book, just to see if the plot thickened. It didn't. The only conflict I could wrangle from this horrible *cough*cough* novel was that the main character was going to have to worry about being in the tabloids. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME! There are many other self published books out there that are much more worth your time and money. They are also less expensive. Go check out Tess Oliver. I've loved all of her books.

This book was great it kept me reading. It's a romantic comedy but it made me laugh out loud and blush at love stuff the characters did. Its aboit a girl who is hot and i mean super model hot with social skills of a potted plant who meets a would be prince of austria. I don't recomend little kids and kids under15 read this. I recomend to those who love a good based on real story this one.
