Happy Wine Wednesday everyone! I hope you are having a fabulous week. If you are reading this blogpost hoping to find the perfect book and bottle reading experience than you are in luck. This week's pairing features New York Times Bestselling Author Karina Halle's The Swedish Prince and a gorgeous bottle of Smoke Tree Chardonnay. A good part of The Swedish Prince does take place in a royally charming Swedish setting but at least half of the book details the prince's incognito stay in California so, voila, Smoke Tree, a Sonoma County wine. I read this book a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. It was a super fun, sexy read. If you love Royal Romances, don't miss out on The Swedish Prince. And of course you'll want to enjoy it with a glass of Smoke Tree Chard. Be sure to let me know what you think of both. Happy middle of the week and, as always, happy reading!
I never believed in fairy-tales.
Never held out for Prince Charming.
Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-three.
Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep.
At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.
But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.
Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.
He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.
Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.
I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.
I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.
When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?
Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?
WARNING: The Swedish Prince is oh-so sweet, enchanting and funny, but it does contain foul language (lots of the F word) and graphic sexual scenes (lots of dirty talk). Reader discretion is advised for those who are sensitive.
