Goodreads:  Julia Costa is too busy trying to complete her PhD while also holding down a full-time job as a private tour guide in Rome to keep up with celebrity gossip. So when she crosses paths with a real, actual prince, she mistakes him for a client and takes him on a daylong tour of the city.

Intrigued by the idea of spending time with someone who obviously has no idea who he is, and delighted at the prospect of a day free of royal obligations, Niccolo La Torre, Crown Prince of Lazaretto, acts on impulse and assumes the role of Julia’s client. He swears to himself that he’ll return to his royal duties after only half a day…but he’s having the time of his life.

Until Julia presents him with the bill. Since he snuck out of the hotel without so much as a dime, he tries to escape, only to discover that she won’t let him out of her sight until he can pay her back. She’s determined to get her money…and perhaps more from the handsome stranger she’s fallen for.

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a series where each book is self contained, it is a remake of a story, but maybe with a little twist.  This book was a remake of Roman Holiday and from the beginning I was swept up into this grand story.  A prince is mistaken by a tour guide for her private tour of the day and as he wants to get out of his duties, he decides to go along for the ride.  

From the beginning, I loved Julia Costa the tour guide.  She was fun and spunky and I just loved her energy.  I almost wanted to try to get a plane to Rome and have her by my tour guide for the day, I loved that she was trying to do the tour guide thing to pay the bills while getting a degree that bled into her tour guide life.  The prince was fantastic.  He was the brother that never got into trouble and always followed what was told and for one day he wanted to throw caution to the wind and make his own decisions - I loved it.
I just adored this book and the writing and the pace.  The characters were right on point and with all things royal, I loved it.  This one is completely romance so if that isn't your jam you may not like it.  It definitely had some sexy times, but they weren't unwarranted or weirdly placed, they were just right.

I was excited to start the series and will be reviewing book two and three the next two days.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
