I very much enjoyed Sariah Wilson's The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back. I helped get this one, Royal Date, published, by voting for it on Amazon's Kindle Scout, and was rewarded with a free copy prior to its publication. I was really looking forward to it. I did like it, but not as much as the other one. But that's just ME! I am not naturally drawn to "he's so hot" and "my ovaries almost burst at his touch" lines written repeatedly. But I know a lot of readers will eat this stuff up. And that's great as I wish the author all the success in the world, many times over! This is definitely a modern fairy tale that starts out quite exciting on a ski slope. Then it turns into a love story about a young lady trying to keep her promise to herself while being overwhelmed by the attention of the handsome too-good-to-be-true prince. And princes are supposed to be just that, aren't they. I look forward to the next book to come from Ms. Wilson.
