ORDINARY GIRL IN A TIARA from author Jessica Hart is from the new Harlequin M&B line, RIVA.

Caroline Cartwright, hurt by her fiancé leaving her for someone sexy and fun, felt herself to be too ordinary for the likes of an European prince.

Prince Philippe, dashing, jet-setting playboy is used to sophisticated and pampered princesses. When he hatches a plan with Caro’s friend Princess Charlotte, for Caro to masquerade as his girlfriend in order to thwart Lottie’s Grandma’s matchmaking, he knows Caro wouldn’t be able to play the part. But Caro would do anything for Lottie and she agreed to live the life of a princess for a few months.

Yet while pretending, Caro sees a different side to Philippe, a good, kind and caring man, who funds missions and flies aid to stricken areas and she becomes aware of the chemistry between them. The growth and progression of the love between Caro and Philippe is depicted in a natural flow which is emotionally satisfying.

She knows she has to return to her ordinary life, and Philippe becomes irritated when he sees her trawling the dating sites. Can he be jealous?

Philippe’s snide comment on every man’s profile Caro tells him about from the dating site is hilarious. And the emails depicted between Caro and her friend Lottie keeps the story very much in the present and is realistic.

This story is liberally spiced with humor, pathos and heartfelt emotion. I did feel emotional when Caro went to say goodbye to the Dowager. And I kept thinking how the author would bring these two characters together for their happily ever after.

You just can’t help but root for these two characters to get to their happy ending. I didn’t want the story to end just then. But who wants a good romance to end? And after finishing I sort of missed Caro and Philippe!

Written with all the warmth, tenderness and sensitivity that has become Jessica Hart’s hallmark, Ordinary Girl in a Tiara is the latest charming and mesmerizing romance from her. It’s every ordinary girl’s story and I highly recommend it! ( )
