First in a new series From New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister comes a series about finding your own wonderland--through one roadblock at a time.... Nothing about Alice Wood's life is normal right now. Her fiance, Patrick, called off their wedding and relationship only days before their nonrefundable wedding trip. And though a luxurious European river cruise for one is just what she needs, it's not what she gets.... Due to a horrible misunderstanding, Alice is now cramped in her "romantic" suite with one of Patrick's friends. Instead of cruising along the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers sipping champagne with the love of her life, she's navigating the waters with a strange--yet mysteriously handsome--British aristocrat. A baron of dubious wealth--and not-so-dubious debt--Elliot Ainslie is just looking forsome alone time to write the books that keep his large family afloat. But his stodgy, serious self is about to be sidetracked by a woman who seems to have jumped out of the pages of a fairy tale, one who is determined to shake up his life...and include him in her own happily ever after.
About the Author
Ever the romantic, Katie MacAlister decided one day to write a story that included all her favorite literary elements--dishy guys, strong women, steamy love scenes, and lots and lots of humor. She's been blessed to write more than forty books since that first one, and is always madly in love with her latest hero. She is also the author of It's All Greek to Me and the Time Thief, Light Dragons, and Dark Ones series.
