What It’s About:

Turning thirty-five doesn’t mean much to most men. For Sebastian Wakefield, it’s the end of life as he knows it.
When your father is the King of England, thirty-five is the year that a marriage will be arranged, a suitable bride cementing a future you didn’t choose. The obvious solution for escaping the archaic laws of the throne is for Sebastian to leave the country. And where better to go than America?

Nina Wolfe has spent her career avoiding scandal. As a Hollywood publicist and minor celebrity in her own right, she knows exactly what it takes to keep the media at bay—and what will send them into a frenzy.

Prince Sebastian hiding out in Cunningham Falls, Montana is an unlikely story. Ending up in his bed, even more so. And keeping their arrangement out of the press might just be impossible. The ring on her finger is about to spark a firestorm that will change her life, and no professional spin will help Nina fit into the world of royalty.

Only love could write an enchanting new beginning—if they’ll let themselves fall.

My Thoughts:

Enchanting Sebastian is the first book in a spin-off series from author Kristin Proby.  I haven’t read anything from this author previously, and I was easily able to dive into the story.  However, it is very clear that the character development of many key players has happened in the parent series.

Sebastian Wakefield is a young prince with a problem.  He is required to find a wife by his next birthday.  To escape his parents efforts to arrange a marriage, he departs to the USA–Montana in particular.  That’s right…not Manhattan, Los Angeles or Las Vegas, but Cunningham Falls, Montana.  He has a friend there, so it is the perfect place to hide out and perhaps strike a deal for a fake marriage.

Nina is trying to be an entrepreneur but she can’t get any breaks.  Her latest business venture failed because her alleged friends and business partners flaked out.  In fact, people have been bailing on Nina her entire life and that has led to some serious baggage.

Between gigs, Nina jumps at the adventure Sebastian is offering.  Little does she know that a sham marriage to a great guy with a loving family can lead to lasting love.  While highly improbable, Ms. Proby’s latest book is a fun escape.  The author admits to her obsession with the British Royal Family, and her love of all things royal is apparent in her latest book.  This lightweight read is a sweet with spice contemporary romance.  There is little angst and minimal tension as the story reaches its zenith.  The culmination is nice but easily anticipated.  The book ends with an epilogue that also acts as a segue to the next book in the series, so be prepared for further adventures from Princess Ellie!
