Prince Alexander Davros is on the run. From the press, from his bodyguards, and from a secret that threatens his position as heir to his country's throne ...

Journalist Maddie Lawson is determined to prove herself capable of covering hard news. She's fuming when her boss tells her to investigate reports of a European prince holidaying undercover in Sydney. As far as Maddie is concerned, Alexander Davros is a freeloading playboy.

When their accidental meeting results in a media frenzy, Alex is convinced Maddie's just been using him for a story. And Maddie can't believe the cute surfer she kissed was actually royalty. With her professional reputation in tatters, Maddie has no choice but to accept the royal family's offer to travel to Europe to write a profile on the Prince.

While furious that his father has arranged for Maddie to visit, Alex is forced to keep her close or risk having her uncover his secret. And as they spend more time together, the attraction between them grows. But if Maddie discovers the truth, she'll have to choose between the career she's worked so hard for and the man she's just getting to know ...

The Secret Prince is definitely a light, entertaining read. It was nicely written and reading this book feels like reading a fairy tale, with the Amorea prince fell for a common girl from Australia.

Maddie met Alex on her job to investigate reports of a European prince holidaying undercover in Sydney. Maddie had no idea who Alex were when she met him. But after they shared a kiss, everything changed. Alex turned out to be the prince she was looking for. 

I love the characters in the book. But I love Maddie the most. She wasn't really a princess material, and she made it clear from the start. And Alex is such a cutie at first, but his personality changed once he returned to Amorea. Both Maddie and Alex were trying to deny the feeling they had for each other to protect themselves. Nevertheless, I thought that the two of them had a really good chemistry. They were cute together. And reading the book makes me smile. 

The ending was very sweet and cute. But I kinda wish that Maddie should resist just a little bit and give a thought about being a princess. Still, I enjoyed this book and will be looking forward to read more from the author.
