A Princess? No Way
Katie Davis is a perfectly ordinary young woman living a perfectly ordinary life in small-town Wisconsin ... isn't she?
The most interesting thing about her is that she works for the men's basketball office at Ashton University. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around assistant basketball coach Brad Spencer, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn't feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-missing granddaughter of the King of Bariavak have to be wrong ... don't they?
Brad has a real soft spot for Katie. She stirs his protectiveness, his penchant for the underdog, and, possibly, certain other reactions he's not about to indulge. So he's going to do his damnedest to make sure Katie gets all that she deserves, including the crown that might be her right ... even though it means Her Royal Highness will never again look at a basketball coach from Wisconsin like he's the king of her heart.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Surprise Princess by Patricia McLinn The Wedding Series Book Five Katie Davis never quite felt like she fit in. She loved her job in the athletics department at Ashton University but mostly she kept to herself. After all she was raised to never be noticed. And then one day she finds her world in an upheaval. Brad Spencer is content being the assistant coach and working alongside the man who coached him when he was and college, C.J. Draper. Everyone thinks he should take a head coaching job, but they don't know the truth of what is holding him here. The story of the missing princess from Bariavak begins in book four of this series; The Christmas Princess. The reader can get to know Brad, C.J. Draper and Carolyn in Hoops. The characters from the first three books are active in the story as well. I really enjoy this series and the characters. **Mild sensual content
This book completely surprised me, as I couldn't figure out if it would have a happy ending or not. But the development of the relationship between Katie and Brad took various twists and turns, and added to the great ending.
