Blurb : Colliding with a prince while dog walking isn’t how Rowan Palotay pictured meeting royalty, but then lately her life hasn’t gone according to plan. With one teensy tiny mistake, her job as a news reporter took a turn for the worse and now she’s lucky to have a small pet column in the local newspaper. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and magic, but she feels like she’s forever stuck on the naughty list.Prince Theodore Chenery is in Marietta shortly after the death of his mother to meet his grandparents for the first time. When an accidental run-in—literally—with Rowan leads to an unexpected friendship, he finds himself enchanted with the outspoken, feisty country girl. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met and her special brand of kindness and honesty make it harder and harder to remember his obligations back home.Rowan can’t afford one more mistake, and Theo’s future is already mapped out, but when they find it impossible to fight the passion and deep-rooted emotions between them, they discover what matters most. Until their relationship makes worldwide news…and Theo must decide whether or not to follow his heart or his royal duty.
Review : I actually received my first Christmas review copies in the end of JUNE … and I have to be honest I refused reading them until beginning of November. So I had a little “early Christmas” last weekend to get myself into the mood. The weather outside was bad with freezing rain and wind so I simply left the curtains drawn to shut out the outside – turned on a few candles and got myself some cake and hot chocolate before I started with :
Twelve Days of Christmas of Debbie Macomber

My thoughts on “once upon a royal Christmas” quiet simple – I think when reading a X-mas novel you have to be more generous than usual when it comes to stuff like “love at first sight” or “miracle” or even “Insta-love” (and you know my general thoughts on that subject). So I am not going to question any of these things here and just go with the feeling of what I expect of a X-mas novel and I believe this book has a lot to offer on that subject. Theo and Rowan are adorable and reading this book made me feel all warm and cozy holed up here in my little pretended pre-X-mas. I can really recommend this book for the X-mas holidays as a story on the shorter side but really worth reading when you are looking for the right feeling.
