She pretends to be a princess at children’s parties.
But can she melt a real prince’s frosty heart?
Get swept away by a Christmas story from Hallmark
and bestselling author Teri Wilson—
the queen of royal romance!
“I’m Prince Nikolas of San Glacera. Oh, you’ve never heard of us? Well, you’re not the only one. Our country relies on winter tourism, but we’re attracting fewer and fewer visitors. I admit it’s a problem. I just don’t think the solution is an American who likes to play dress-up.
You see, while I was away on a trip, my younger sister convinced the palace to hold a contest. The winner gets to star in our annual Ice Village festivities and accompany our royal family to holiday events.
And who did they choose? Gracie Clark, who runs a children’s party business and performs as—I kid you not—‘Princess Snowflake.’
Of course, I do respect the fact that she volunteers at children’s hospitals. I suppose to some, she might have a certain charm… But the whole cheap spectacle is beneath our dignity.
I’m not going to shirk my duty to my kingdom. I’ll go to every event with her. At least, once Christmas is over, she’ll be gone…”
This was just too cute! It was honestly the perfect Hallmark romance read! Once Upon a Royal Christmas is the second Teri Wilson book that I have read and I loved it! First off let me say that it is from Hallmark and it is a total Hallmark book. I was looking for a light and fun read and this was just what I wanted.
Gracie was so fun and full of life. She was trying her best to get her business going . She never expected to find herself playing a Christmas princess in San Glacera, spending time with the crown prince. Gracie was a sweet character, I liked how she looked out for others. She worked hard and she was kind. But Gracie was also working through her own fears of failures as she tried to keep her business afloat. I liked reading from Gracie’s perspective, it was also cute to see how she saw Nikolas.
Prince Nikolas was just trying his best. He truly cared for his people and he wanted to be the best prince that he could be. I really liked Nikolas especially as he tried to help his people. He was kind but he did have a bit of a grumpy exterior. Nikolas had to learn that he didn’t need to shoulder the burden of the world. Gracie helped show him how to live and enjoy life.
Nikolas and Gracie were a wonderful couple. They really balanced each other and helped each other be better. I loved reading about their easy interactions. The story was fun and easy to read with little stress. The side characters were a wonderful addition and I also loved the pets in this book too!
Once Upon a Royal Christmas is a must read. It is an easy relaxing read! Once Upon a Royal Christmas is a clean Christmas romance.
