Review: Ruling the Princess by Christi Barth (2020)

Sexy Misadventures of Royals, Book #2

Heat Factor: Panty melting, but make it classy

Character Chemistry: They’re like a chemistry experiment…they’re prim and proper until mixed. Then ka-boom.

Plot: Duke Jr./financial auditor is sent to examine the Princess’ books because the country is considering entering the EU. Duke Jr. doesn’t like the Princess or royalty at all, but that feeling is short-lived and then lots of fascinating drama ensues.

Overall: I grudgingly started this book and ended up completely absorbed by it–sexy, fun, and well-written. (And a series! My favorite.)
