Royal Date Review And Giveaway!

I am SO EXCITED to tell you about this book.  I first heard about it when the author asked me to help her with her back cover copy.  It was honestly one of the most fun I had writing back copy (the subject matter intrigued me) and then the book got picked up by the Kindle Scout program and Amazon mostly kept what I had written! Yeah, I loved that.

So, when I finally got my copy of the book I delved right in.  I wanted to know more about the characters that we'd been teasing on the back cover!  And it didn't disappoint.  Kat is such a fun, witty, sarcastic character that has such a great dose of realism around her.  I loved how she interacted with the prince from the beginning to end. Nothing felt contrived and I was laughing out loud at some of their scenes and sighing in contentment as her relationship with the Prince progressed.  Of course there's some pretty awesome obstacles for them to overcome, but I was totally rooting for them the entire way through.

The prince is described as "Superman's hotter Italian cousin" and I could just imagine.  I loved how he handled his relationship with Kat from the very beginning.  Getting down to who he really is and if he can actually have Kat in his life was quite the journey.  I loved his family, as well, and they rounded out a great secondary cast.

This is the kind of book that you stay up reading for.  It has it all---romance, wit, and a couple that makes you want to believe in happily-ever-afters. I highly recommend this one.

Here's the (amazing) back cover copy:

This Cinderella didn’t plan on a prince . . .

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything—including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman’s hotter Italian cousin.

HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal—let him show her his country and he’ll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra’s tourism industry. Kat agrees, but given her past and lingering distrust of men, she has one condition—absolutely no kissing.

Thanks to the claims of a jealous British noblewoman and the schemes of a meddling paparazzo, Kat’s rule doesn’t seem to be a problem at first. But the more Kat gets to know Nico and the people around him, the harder it is to remember her keep-your-distance plan. Should she stick to it or risk everything for a chance at happily ever after?

So, how does one go about writing back copy for a book one hasn't read?

Debra Erfert said...

Yeah, I voted for Kindle Scout to pick up this book too. When it won, I got my free copy and immediately read it. I was only going to read the first few pages, but it grabbed me so much that I pushed my plans for the day to the side and read the whole thing in one sitting--it was that good. I saw your name in the acknowledgments and knew you did the blurb. You're good!

T, I ask for a two page double-spaced synopsis of the book and write it from there. :)

Debra, thank you! And we obviously felt the same about the book. It's a one-sitting read!

I have only had the opportunity to read/review a couple of Sariah's books but they were both delightfully exceptional!
Whether I win or not, I will always be a fan and recommend her books!

The code didn't work for me just FYI.

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

Thanks, NaDell for letting me know. Sorry!

NaDell Ransom said...

Not a problem...I bought it anyway. Still a great deal!

I've read and loved all of Sariah Wilson's other books, and I supported this one on Kindle Scout. I'm so glad that this one was published (and that I've gotten to read and enjoy it)!
