Readers looking for a light, fun read full of holiday mischief will be delighted by Samantha Hastings' A Royal Christmas Quandary, perfect for fans of A Christmas Prince.
When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible.
1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington. But Drina's plans are all but dashed when Alice's parents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, declare that Alice must choose one of two royal princes to become engaged to before Christmas.
There's just one problem: George, a junior member of the Foreign Office, has accidentally misplaced one of the princes.
Together, Drina and George scour the town of Windsor for the missing prince, desperately hoping to deliver him to the royal dinner party with the queen and king none the wiser. They might just need a royal Christmas miracle to pull it off.

One Way or Another

What are some of your favorite romcoms?  ONE WAY OR ANOTHER by Kara McDowell has all of the charm and romance of a Hallmark movie plus the depth and drama of a well-written novel.Paige suffers from crippling anxiety and even the smallest of decisions, sends her into a spiral of overthinking. So when she is offered two different ways to celebrate Christmas, she is undecided. Go to New York with her mom on her first airplane ride and do all the things on her list. Or, enjoy the holiday at her best friend’s cabin who she also happens to be in love with. Fate and a knock on the head, give her the opportunity to enjoy both options...I loved seeing how the two “fates” differed and how they were the same. I also enjoyed Paige’s character growth in both scenarios. And what is a Christmas story without romance? Well this one has plenty of misunderstandings, misses, and holiday kisses.

Character Cards: Prince Bertie

Bertie is a bit of a disappointment to his parents; sandwiched between Vicky and Alice (both genius-level intellect), he’s ordinary. More charming than virtuous. More spontaneous than serious. But because he is male, he is the heir to Queen Victoria’s throne. He’s only 19, but his sister Vicky is already vetting princesses in Europe for his future wife. He and Drina are friends, and he wants to help her break the entail on her family’s estate. ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘He’ll eventually become King Edward VII, but his friends still call him Tum Tum. ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘‘Preorder gifts and purchase links. 


Princess Alice Character Card

This week I’m going to highlight two REAL royal characters! Queen Victoria, her husband, and eight of her nine children are characters in A ROYAL CHRISTMAS QUANDARY. Princess Alice is the third child and at the ripe old age of 17 needs to pick a prince fast (her older sister Vicky was engaged at 14; yikes!). Her parents have given her until Christmas to pick her future husband. Luckily, her best friend Drina is ready to help her find the perfect prince. Preorder gifts and purchase links.

Mr. Malcolm’s List

Have you ever created a list of attributes for a spouse/partner? I did in high school and it’s a hoot! There’s like 30 requirements (most of them are ridiculous). MR. MALCOLM’S LIST by Suzanne Allain is definitely a book you’ll want to add to your TBR list! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️When Julia learns from her cousin, Lord Cassidy, that Mr. Malcolm has moved on because she didn’t meet all the requirements on his list, she’s livid. She comes up with a scheme—have Mr. Malcolm fall in love with her old school fellow, Selina, and then have her snub him for not meeting HER list. Selina is eager to be London and is told by Julia if she doesn’t follow through with the scheme, she’ll lose her invitation. Both Selina and Mr. Malcolm have instant attraction, but Selina is piqued that she is being tested from his list. And Julia is out for revenge at all costs. Mr. Malcolm’s list for an acceptable wife is worthy of Mr. Darcy. He’s looking for perfection, but he realizes by the end that love can’t be found on a l…
