A PRINCESS FOR CHRISTMAS
A PRINCESS FOR CHRISTMAS (3) by Shirley Jump: Running an art gallery in a small town is a respite for Mariabella from the expectations of her family -- and her royal duties. But it's not going to last forever, especially once hotelier Jake rolls in with plans to build a fancy resort. Mariabella blocks him at every turn, but Jake's not used to taking no for an answer -- personally or professionally. But getting involved would be a terrible idea, because Mariabella has to go home eventually -- and Jake isn't over his fiancee's death. Somehow, though, it happens anyway! This story has its charms, but several plot elements have been done to death.
