Publisher's Summary

Sometimes you have to run away to find yourself.
Lots of young women dream of being a princess. Nina Jones isn't one of them. After escaping from her palace/prison by burying herself under sacks of fertilizer, she ends up in a beach cottage on New Zealand's South Island. She's meant to be looking after a cantankerous widower. Too bad she doesn't know how to boil an egg. Iain McCormick may be an All Black, a member of New Zealand's elite rugby team, and a bona fide celebrity. During the offseason, though, he's meant to be a regular Kiwi bloke. A good son, a good neighbor, and a good citizen. But civility comes harder when you've been dumped at the altar. He doesn't need anybody he has to look out for. He definitely doesn't need to fall in love. Yeah, right.
Note: This book, like New Zealand, contains some steam. In fact, it gets downright hot in a few places, and more than a little adventurous. If that isn't your cuppa, maybe visit another country...er, book.

Great fun listening

Wow this is a fun listen! I am sometimes disappointed when listening to a favourite book, but not on this occasion. Can a woman narrator do justice to male characters?
On this occasion, emphatically yes!
Emma Wilder really brings the characters to life. I loved grand dad Arthur's gruff life wisdom, he is spot on. Carmela and Graham' marriage revival is an added dimension too.
Light and shade, fun, humour, drama - there's lots of listening variety.
This is part of the New Zealand series but is absolutely a stand alone book.
Ian and Nina take a while to get together but when they do, it's typically steamy. If you haven't read the book you might want to be aware there are some fairly explicit sexual descriptions that the narration really brings to life!
I am still not a fan of the 'prince' element but that's a tiny personal point on my part, just being honest.
Control and choice are strong themes. Ian isn't perfect- he stuffs up but admits it and keeps trying (got to love him just for that!) and Nina has to toughen up to confirm her self belief. There's adjustments on both sides - just like real relationships.
New Zealand wraps around the listener and somehow the vibe and feel of the country is even stronger when spoken aloud.
Credit to all involved.

I received a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way or obliged to be positive. This is my own opinion.
