But when Cam discovers the maiden's not-so-maidenly diary, will her wildest Christmas wishes be fulfilled in its pages . . . or in his arms?

I'd been seeing rave reviews for Katharine Ashe for a few years now and I've been meaning to try her ever since and the other day I finally got around to doing so, and now I'm kicking myself because I didn't give her books a go sooner.

This was a sweet little historical romance that had just enough steam to really round out the story. I enjoyed that this was a love story with a Plain Jane princess (Jacqueline) and a dashingly handsome rogue Cam.

I liked that Jacqueline was a princess of a made up country but I also liked that she was aware of being plain, but she didn't let it stop her from writing her deepest desires about Cam into her diary. I also think it gave her a bit of an edge because she wasn't like other heroines that use their looks to get what they want, instead she used her brain. I liked seeing her go from being shy around Cam to being really witty in the end and she had me laughing a couple of times.

Cam was the rogue, but instead of being a real pain in the rear, I found that he was softer, more mellow than the usual historical romance heroes. He wasn't really broody and I thought that he could be very charming, plus I love how he was with Jacqueline.

As a couple, these two fit together very well and I love how their romance came about with Cam reading about her fantasies in her diary. I thought it was funny how our rogue found himself tongue tied over what her majesty thought and I loved their chemistry. I thought that the author using the diary in the story was genius and a unique way in bringing the couple together in time for the holidays even though they had obstacles to over come but I enjoyed that the book let the characters romance evolve over a couple of months and wasn't an insta-love type read.

Since this was my first time reading the author I wasn't sure what to expect, especially since this is book 1.5 in the series, but I really think I did the right thing with trying this one out because I feel like I was able to get a good feel for the author's writing style (which I thoroughly enjoyed) and I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the Prince Catchers series in the near future.

I would recommend Kisses, She Wrote to all fans of Katharine Ashe, historical romance and those who are looking for a light, quit entertaining read about an unlikely couple and their holiday romance. Cam and Jacqueline are sure to make you smile.

Really Enjoyed It!

  3. Kimberly this sounds positively delightful and I don't think I have tried this author. I love holiday themed tales and will add this one to my pile. Beginning in November I gobble these up like chocolates and cannot wait!

  4. This is also the first of Katharine Ashe's books that I've read and I really enjoyed this small serving of a sweet and engrossing love story between a princess and her rogue.
