The Prince's Christmas Vow is a story of new beginnings and second chances at love. I was immediately hooked with the story the minute I read the synopsis, it's one of those stories that I knew I was going to love and it didn't disappoint at all. When Crown Prince Demetrius Castanavo used to still be in his playboy ways he met a young interior designer, Zoe Sarris who he secretly got married to without anyone of his family knowing about it. Needless to say, it was an scandalous event that completed changed their lives, especially when Zoe was forced to leave the prince for good by his family. Now she has come back to his life after he requested her interior design services. With the hopes that they can put their personal past behind them, she shows up at the palace only to find that she still has feelings for the Crown Prince. But then she realizes that she will never make a good princess, and the secret that she managed to keep away from him could damage their relationship all over again. Soon she focuses on staying on task, only to find the shocking news that she is still married to Demetrius and that's when the story really takes off and Zoe has to decide whether staying married to the prince is worth it or not. Demetrius Castanavo has been trying to fix his public persona for the good of the country, but now as a Crown Prince things have started to get harder to hide from the press. But when he finds out that he is still married to Zoe, he promises to do anything to protect him, even letting her go once again. I really loved this story, it was filled lots of holiday spirit and romance that had me reading until the very end. It is evident that both of the characters have a lot to grow now that their lives have changed. Zoe tries so hard to hide the secret that could damage her relationship with the prince, but in the process she realizes that she loves him and doesn't know what to do about it. On the other hand, Demetrius is going to be king one day and he needs the public to see that he is serious about taking on the task, but his secret elopement could damage his reputation, and he is willing to fix the problem once and for all. Things start to get shaky when the both get word that someone knows their secret, and that's when the story gets twists and turns that will definitely keep you reading. The overall plot was great, although I wish we could have seen a separate chapter on how they met. It would have tied everything nicely, but it all ends up great at the end. The epilogue was sweet and it really felt like Christmas all over again. I highly recommend this book, I will most certainly be reading more from the author in the future. :) ***ARC provided by Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.***

Demetrius Castanova, Crown Prince of the Mirraccini Islands, can no longer be a playboy. He must now show himself as the heir to the throne because the King is not in good health. Demetrius’s estranged wife, Zoe, is an interior designer on the island and she has been hired to do the work on a large, long-term care housing project. She is thrilled to have won the job as she is hoping it will help her mother. Currently visiting a relative, her mother’s health is rapidly deteriorating as she declines into early-onset Alzheimers. When Zoe’s mother was diagnosed, Zoe fears that she too may carry the gene for the disease and that to remain married to the Prince would be wrong. She fears that she may pass the gene on to future generations of royals and may also succumb to the disease at an early age adding further burden to Demetrius. They were married privately and their marriage remains a secret. Zoe was to have signed some annulment papers and sent them to Demetrius but he never received them. It turns out that she had entrusted her mother to mail them and, instead, the woman had just placed them in a drawer. Zoe has been hired to paint some murals and that business deal brings her into constant contact with Demetrius. When she finds herself the target of a persistent photographer intent on finding out more about their relationship, Demetrius insists that she stay at a cottage on the palace grounds. As Zoe and Demetrius see one another more, they realize that their love for each other is still strong. Will they be able to complete the business deal they are working on and then go their separate ways? This is a sweet story that I enjoyed very much. I’m sure other readers will as well.

I want to give the story 5 stars - because I love Jennifer Faye's books, BUT ... I can't quite give it the 5 stars because if only the heroine had actually shared her thoughts with her hero ... then they might have been living happily ever after sooner. BUT ... then again ... maybe they needed that time apart from one another to grow and be ready for the happy ever after ending when it came. I still found the story sweet.

A wonderful story just in time for the holidays. Zoe Sarris walked away from her brief marriage to Prince Demetrius for personal reasons, though she never told him why. The marriage was never made public and an annulment was to occur. Now the Prince has requested her interior design services on the new South Shore revitalization project which entails restoring an old mansion into a care home facility. As Zoe works with Prince Demetrius again, old passions flare, and when she learns the annulment papers never arrived back after she signed them, she’s shocked to learn they are still married. Demetrius wants his princess back, but will the secret Zoe is hiding from him ruin their chances, or will she open her heart and give love another chance. A beautiful story with touching moments and two characters that will have you rooting for their happily ever after.

A crown prince and an interior designer. Both Demetrius and Zoe are driven in their chose fields, perhaps both use it as a way to forget their secret elopement. They were so well described that you couldn’t help but root for a happy ending. I enjoyed visiting this island nation. Both the beauty of the Mediterranean Coast and the descriptions of the newly renovated Residenza del Rosa come to life so well with author Faye’s descriptions. And although a Christmas ball highlights the end of the story, it can be read any time of year!

I received this in exchanged for an honest review. I love that fact that takes place at Christmas as this book is about family. Her mom his family and the fact that they are married. I love the part with them decorating the tree and the house. I love that they both love each other so deeply that either of them wants to hurt the other. I can understand the part how she feelings about the Alzheimer, it is really scary. Prince Demetrius is a strong man who knows when family is needed but also wants the woman he loves back but respected her wishes and let her go. the ending is the best. this a great book and I recommend it to anyone who loves a great romance.

Zoe Sarris is an interior designer who is sought out by Prince Demetrius to revitalize the area with the South Shore Project. He wanted it to be perfect because he knew Zoe was the best, and the project was going to help out a lot of people. When Zoe arrived, she hadn't expected the Prince to be there. She thought she was going to be working for someone else. Zoe and the Prince have a complicated past. They secretly married and since the marriage was annulled, or so she thought, she was apprehensive to work in close proximity with Prince Demetrius. There was a problem with the annulment and even though she signed the papers and sent them back, the Prince never received them. He thought she had a hidden agenda, expecting more money or trying to blackmail him. That was the furthest thing from the truth since she's the one who walked out on him after only 48 hours of marriage. Zoe's mother is the only family she has and she's extremely close with and very protective of her mother. When Zoe found out her mother's health was deteriorating, Zoe had to leave her marriage to be with her mother. She didn't have time to explain anything to Prince Demetrius. She thought leaving would be the best thing for the both of them and she didn't want to burden him with her problems. When Zoe found out they were still married, she wanted to make things right and get the annulment over and done with so she and the Prince could get on with their lives. The problem with working with the Prince was that old feelings started to resurface and Zoe only wanted to give her mother the best life she could. When Zoe finally figured out what happened to the annulment papers, she handed them over to the Prince and he realized she didn't have a hidden agenda. He needed answers as to why she ran off without an explanation and she finally, begrudgingly, told him the truth. He realized he still had feelings for her as she did for him, but she still didn't want to get close because she was afraid that her mother's health issues were also going to affect her and she wanted the Prince to be with someone who was truly a Princess, who wasn't a commoner and who didn't have flaws. Prince Demetrius wanted to be with Zoe, protect and care for her, and he would always be there for her no matter what. They worked closely together and the project was a huge success. Jennifer Faye is a wonderful author who writes amazing stories. I highly recommend this series.

Unique writing, great story line and interesting characters make this a delightful read. Zoe and Demetrius come from two very different worlds which makes things difficult but with understanding and growing love they work out their difference. I enjoyed this story very much and look forward to more from this author. Don't miss this one!! Gifted copy for an honest review.

An awesome story that gripped me from the very first page. Superbly written with great characters make this one for the reread shelf! Crown Prince Demetrius Castanavo takes his position very very seriously so when he requests Zoe Sarris' interior design services she's shocked. Even more shocking is the fact that their secret marriage was never annulled and he plans on getting her back! This is one I recommend for everyone!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Even waiting a year for this second book, I so very much enjoyed revisiting the Castanavo royal family. And no worries, this is definitely a standalone book. This story is about Zoe Sarris and Crown Prince Demetrius Castanavo. No recapping of the story here except to say that it begins with these two finding out that they are still married, after all this time. They make a great couple, are crazy in love with each other, and throw in a holiday background? LOVE IT! Seriously, it is a great holiday read about their journey back together and Ms. Faye does an excellent job of giving us an update from the first story as well. I highly recommend!
