HOLIDAY ROYALE (4.5) by Christine Rimmer: Cosseted since childhood because of near-fatal birth defects, Lucy Cordell realizes after she’s finally cured that she’s ill-prepared for life — so she asks a friend to be her first lover. Dami’s flattered and terrified by Lucy’s request — he loves watching the world through her boldly inquisitive eyes — but he absolutely cannot be her first. When love comes knocking, will they answer? Rimmer’s lighthearted romance is a joy. In this pseudo-Cinderella story, the nemesis of the adventurous heroine is illness, not wicked stepsisters; and her Prince Charming is the perfect royal playboy with the heart of gold. Rimmer’s formal dialogue fits the characters and regal backdrop like a glass slipper. And the loves scenes ignite.
