My Review: Her One Night Prince

I love books that give you that warm fuzzy feeling when you are finished reading it. Her One Night Prince did that for me. It’s a book about a shy, reserved woman who takes care of her father and tries to convince herself she doesn’t have time for love. She’s heading back to her reunion and trying to find a nice gay man to take her. It just gets better from here. Silly situations ensue as she wants a man to take her to her reunion. She thinks he is gay but he’s actually straight and enjoying the friendship that blossoms. If you enjoy a good romantic story you’ll love this book. Make sure you check out, Her One Night Prince. You won’t be sorry you did.

Book Blurb

Her One-Night Prince is a Cinderella story about a woman’s dream
to be something she’s not for just one night at her class reunion.
As all fairy tales go, however, happy endings don’t come easily.

Shy and sheltered Lydia St. Clair is uncomfortable around men, so
she advertises for a gay man to be her date and revamp her style.
Mitch Gannon answers Lydia’s ad and he’s perfect for the job–
he’s handsome and, even more important, he’s charming.

Unbeknownst to Lydia, Mitch is straight and answered the ad as
the unwitting victim of a practical joke. Before he can reveal the
truth, Lydia is convinced he’s her fairy godmother, ready to
transform her into the belle of the ball. And Mitch, prince that he
is, doesn’t have the heart to set her straight.

Excerpt from book.
With a firm hand against her upper back, Mitch propelled Lydia out of the bar and out the door.
She peered back through the windows and could just make out that waitress standing behind the bar and staring out at them.

“She’s beautiful,” she said, turning back to Mitch. Something about that woman signaled a déjà
vu of sorts in her mind, but she couldn’t quite put a finger on it.

“Who? Edwina?” He glanced into the pub. “Yeah, she is.”

Edwina’s showstopping figure and stunning looks caused Lydia to self-consciously smooth
back her boring, pulled-tight-into-a-bun-as-usual hair. She couldn’t imagine a woman like Edwina
ever advertising in the gay personals. She couldn’t imagine Edwina making a boob of herself by
assuming Mitch worked at a gay bar.

With the heel of her palm, she bonked herself in the side of the head a few times. “Just shoot
me, will you?”

Mitch pulled her hand away from her head. “You’re too hard on yourself, Lydia.”

For a moment she zeroed in on the feeling of his large, warm hand holding hers. It felt good,

like it belonged there, which was a crazy thought. Reality returned, and she pulled her hand from
his grasp.

“What in the world was I thinking?” she asked. Her skin burned from embarrassment, or the
heat of summer, or his touch…or all the above.

“It’s understandable you’d assume I worked at a gay bar. I mean, you think I…er…”

She waved her hand back and forth. “No, no. That was just plain stupidity. What I meant was,
I had this grand notion of you helping me out and transforming me into the belle of the ball. You know, Queer Eye my style or something.” She wrapped her arms around herself despite the warm
air and strode down the alley. If a sinkhole opened up in front of her, she’d gladly fall into it.

He jogged up beside her as they reached the sidewalk. “I don’t know about the clothing and
hair stuff,” he said, “but I could certainly give you advice on men.” He cleared his throat and
coughed. “I mean, since I’m a, ah, man.”

“That’s okay. It was a dumb idea. Besides, I don’t want advice on men. It would be pointless.”
She pulled black-framed sunglasses from her purse and exchanged them for her regular glasses to
block the blinding glare off the sidewalk.

Mitch didn’t respond right away, so she knew he silently agreed with her. Finally, he
asked, “Why would it be pointless?”

She had about a million reasons. “It just would be.”

I want to learn to snowboard!


Winter’s coming and I am thinking about our first snow that might or might not happen this week. Have you ever been snowboarding? I live in a fairly mild climate. We get snow about 3-6 times per year and it’s usually less than an inch. I, so, would love to vacation in a snowier climate and get to do the snow activities. One thing I’ve always wanted to learn was to snowboard and go snowmobiling. How fun would it be for the family to all get to pick out their snowboards.

I had to do some research since I have never been. Snowboarding is a fairly new sport. It began gaining popularity around the 1980’s when I was a teen. As I was looking at the website I noticed there are many sizes and designs to the snowboards. I loved the look of the Lucky Burns Kids beginner snowboard. As a mom of 2 boys I think they would like that to learn on those pretty red snowboards. How fun would it be to head north to Canada and learn a whole new skill set for both my boys and my daughter. Imagine how their self esteem could improve as they grasp a new sport. I can even see our kids eyes lighting up after taking lots of lessons on our new snowboards. My daughter has a very cautious personality and it might take me a few tries to get her on the snow. She must have a pink snowboard! That pink snowboard would have a better chance of getting her on the snow. She’s such a girl.

This is one activity I’d love to learn to do. A vacation to learn it would just be the icing on the cake. Do you have a sporting activity or something you’d like to learn? Would it involve taking you to another climate? I will be saving my money to take a nice vacation in the winter. We’ve never had a winter vacation. Maybe this time next year my family can learn to snowboard!
