Review by Nas:
WEIGHT OF THE CROWN by author Christina Hollis is released by M&B Modern as well as Harlequin Presents.
Alyssa Dene is personally recommended as the best in the job and she takes on the duties of nanny to the orphaned nephew of Prince Lysander Kahani. Coming face-face with the Prince, Alyssa is aware of his playboy reputation but cannot help the flicker of attraction running through her!
Lysander meets a challenge! The previous nannies had come running to him to be consoled after his nephew threw tantrums. Yet Alyssa lays down strict boundaries for the little king-in-the-making, making Lysander back her up!
Will Alyssa manage to make the little Prince as well as Prince Lysander toe the line? How will Lysander combat his attraction to Alyssa as she seems unattainable? Alyssa’s refusal to be taken for granted was one of the reasons that had appealed to him. Women never refused him, ever. So how can he bring Alyssa to agree to a royal offer he intended making?
WEIGHT OF THE CROWN is a wonderful, sensual, tension-filled romance that I found charming, absorbing and moving. Christina Hollis is a terrific writer who creates likeable characters readers take to their hearts. It’s a beguiling and stirring story that is sure to tug at readers’ heartstrings and leave them with a great big smile on their face at the unusual ending.
She has delivered a yummy-to-die-for hero, a playboy Prince who turns to one woman only for true love, a strong, feisty heroine and rolled them in a story that is filled with emotion and sizzle!
