Publisher's Summary

This Cinderella didn't plan on a prince...

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything - including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman's hotter Italian cousin.

HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal - let him show her his country and he'll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra's tourism industry. Kat agrees, but given her past and lingering distrust of men, she has one condition - absolutely no kissing.

Thanks to the claims of a jealous British noblewoman and the schemes of a meddling paparazzo, Kat's rule doesn't seem to be a problem at first. But the more Kat gets to know Nico and the people around him, the harder it is to remember her keep-your-distance plan. Should she stick to it or risk everything for a chance at happily ever after?

Very, very sweet story

No surprises in this sweet Cinderella-esque story. Though I am typically drawn to a steamy romance, it is occasionally nice to break from the norm and listen to/read a lovely story sans sexual encounters. Christians would be comfortable with it, and be pleased, as well, with the religious aspect as it is inclusive of morals and the royal family’s devotion to the church. There are a few villains, but only minor angst.

Royal Date is a heartwarming story and so very apropos for the Christmas holidays.

I struggled with this book!

I struggled with this book. The leading lady was so whiny and weak. The chemistry was not convincing. The story line was not convincing. I was like reading a fairytale that was not a good read. I hate to write a negative review. It could be because I just listened to Emma Chase's Royally Screwed series.

I only listened to the entire book because I an the type of person who has to finish what I've started.

A new Princess Diaries

I really enjoyed the story. Thought that the Narrator made Nico sound a little like Dracula but I was impressed with her abilities overall.

😄💕

This is such a great story. I was really happy to see that it was finally released on Audible. I hope more titles from this author are released on Audible soon.

I have read several of the Royals of Monterra Kindle Worlds stories. Some are almost as good as Ms. Wilson's original works and I am hoping that some are released on Audible as well.

For me, uneven

This is the fourth book from Sariah Wilson that I have read. The novels have been formulaic but because of her humor and writing skill were enjoyable. The first two #Awesome and #Starstruck, I couldn’t put down. The #Moonstruck and this book had stretches that I was turned off on the characters and couldn’t wait for the book to end. The point at which it occurred for me in this book was when she took the money and phone from the paparazzi. She was supposedly a high principled intelligent person that knew right from wrong and this didn’t fit with the character. Everything after this when the author was developing their relationship rang hollow. That said, there we parts or the book that were enjoyable because of the talent of the author. She has a humorous style that wasn’t quite as much on display in this book. I didn’t completely buy in to the relationship between Kat and Prince Nico. She has a real talent for capturing kids and their behavior. I probably would not recommend this book as a measure of this author’s considerable talent.

sweet but implausible

good for mindless entertainment but don't think too much about it because the holes in storyline are easy to spot.

Nice clean story

Some of the excess background talking could have been cut short. Blah, blah. The narrator was good, but her male voice was like Dracula. Lol, it’s had to find that sexy.

Love a good fairy tale

I don’t care what anyone else says, I loved Royal Date and fell in love. Nico charmed me even after I thought he was a total flirt who didn’t know how to take a hint. ;) Kat is good for him, and I totally fell in love with Serafina. It’s a cute, feel good fairy tale for anyone who loves such a story. I’ll be reading Lemon’s story next.

Wonderful

What a beautiful story. I laughed from the beginning of this book. The story was very sweet, romantic and emotional at times.
