Lili knows she shouldn’t accept a lift from a stranger, but as usual, she leaps from one disaster to another. The consequence is being stuck in the middle of a snowy nowhere wearing next to nothing, and this time, being unprepared looks likely to kill her.
Grant lives in an isolated cabin for a reason. He’s prepared for almost every eventuality. The last thing he wants is some needy person interfering with his ordered life. When he gets into bed with a woman he rescued from certain death—just to warm her up, of course—Grant discovers something else he’s not prepared for. His heart opening.
A match made in heaven, until secrets come knocking. Lili is not just a simple woman in need of shelter, and unless she can survive dealing with her background, it doesn’t seem possible the happiness that’s fallen out of a blizzard can heal Grant’s own past.
My Book Review:
Lili is a princess whose whole life has been controlled by her parents and fiance. Tired of being controlled and fearful of her abusive fiance, Lili runs away by hitching a ride with a trucker. When the trucker tries to rape Lili as payment for her ride, Lili fights him off and is left stranded half dressed and with no money in a snowstorm on the side of the road.
Grant Houston is a reclusive author and prepper, who left his past life behind to live in a secluded cabin in the middle of the woods of Wyoming with a tame wolf named Shadow. Carrying emotional scars from his past, Grant is prepared for any traumatic event, except meeting a half-naked girl stranded on the side of a road in a snowstorm.
Grant rescues Lili and takes her back to his cabin. They are complete opposites, but have similarities as both suffer from emotional pasts. Lili is looking for her Prince Charming, while Grant is afraid to risk loving and losing someone again. As they get to know each other, they overcome obstacles that bring them together under the healing power of love.
The Princess And The Prepper is a short novella that provides the reader with a steamy modern day fairytale where the princess is rescued by her prince. Author Barbara Elsborg weaves a dramatic tale of love, loss and second chances. Written in the third person narrative, the author brings together two people with past emotional baggage, who seek comfort in each other's arms through the healing power of love. The storyline is full of emotional upheaval, drama, humor and steamy sex that draws the reader in as Lili and Grant's story unfolds. You can't help but feel for both Lili and Grant as you learn about their traumatic and emotional pasts, but their coming together makes up for it with some pretty sigh worthy steamy love scenes. From beginning to end, The Princess And The Prepper will engage the reader to cheer on Lili and Grant, hoping for a wonderful happy ending that will leave a smile on their face.
The Princess And The Prepper is a thoroughly enjoyable erotic romance novella that weaves a deeply satisfying emotional tale of love, loss, and second chances.
RATING: 4 STARS ****
About The Author
Barbara Elsborg lives in West Yorkshire in the north of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Vulcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.
After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop. Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write.
