2 stars-- Royal Date (The Royals of Monterra, #1) by Sariah Wilson

Note: I accidentally deleted 6 months of the blog so this is a repost. All comments on the original posts were unfortunately lost. Sorry!

Eh. If you've watched a Hallmark movie with a royal family you basically know the gist of Royal Date. Poor heroine on holiday catches a Prince's eye and then winds up hurt and taken under his wing for the holidays. He's smitten, she resists, the temptation of betraying him is presented, she breaks up with him yada yada. 

The Characters & Such: Nico is a lovely hero-- upstanding, responsible, loving, kind. He's all things good and sexy and totally swoon-worthy. Kat was a struggle-- mercurial, immature and irrational. I wasn't a fan of how childish and ungrateful she could be. I did like the setting of the royal family's private quarters and seeing them during the holidays. The family moments and their professional commitments. Its a nice family and the holidays were lovely. 
All in all, though, Royal Date was mostly a miss for me. There's nothing all that original or remarkable about it-- including the writing-- but it wasn't the worst I've read either.
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?
