Summary of Dating the Prince by Alina Snow
Small-town girl, Katie O’Connor has always dreamed of seeing her name in lights. Check the box for fame, a movie deal, the perfect leading role that comes with a gorgeous leading man! Katie moved to Hollywood, elbows her way into auditions, lives on a shoestring budget—whatever is required to land a deal, she throws her heart into… until she’s involved in a royal kidnapping.
As the future king, Prince Alexander refuses to rule from an ivory tower. Duty-bound, he intends to relate to his future subjects, regardless of their walk of life. Before his coronation, he needs a foolproof plan to outrun his security team and go temporarily AWOL. While visiting L.A., all it takes is a soundstage collision and Alex is blindsided by a headstrong woman who is simply irresistible. So much so, he calls in a favor in order to secure her help … as his pretend girlfriend.
Their worlds are oceans apart, but their immediate attraction is impossible to put aside, especially their nonstop banter. Miffed at being wrangled into a situation that might blow up in her face, Katie comes up with her own plan. If The Prince is serious about walking the walk of the common folk, she’s only too happy to oblige as his pretend girlfriend. Through an ice storm, a road trip, kitchen duty, and a Texas pig race, Alex captures the hearts of the locals as well as Ms. O’Connor’s.
What starts out as a deal Katie can’t refuse becomes the acting role of a lifetime… letting Prince Alexander go without a fight.
A delightfully funny retelling of The Prince and The Pauper that romance readers of all ages will enjoy. On a two-week 1,500-mile road trip, Katie and Alex discover the end of the road might just be the beginning of their ‘Happy Ever After’ together.

Review of Dating the Prince
If you are into fairy tale stories and maybe have been a little caught up on royal weddings, then this title should be in your reading queue.
The author was inspired by the engagement of Prince Harry to actress Meghan Markle.
This story presupposes that the Prince is heir to the throne and that the Queen is going to be stepping down for him to begin his rule. This is the reason for his round the world tour which lands him in Hollywood.
While the story occasionally has a choppy spot or two, I found it a delight to read. After all, many gals have had fantasies of Prince Charming coming and sweeping them off their feet. In this instance, though, it isn’t love at first sight. Rather Katie sees Prince Alexander as an inconvenient means to an end (her big break!)
Like all good romantic comedies, there’s a bit of tension throughout the story. And, eventually, they fall head over heels in love. But, having feelings for someone and giving up the life you know to be with them permanently isn’t easy.
The book is divided into three main sections (almost as if they could each be a novella.) First, you have them meeting in Hollywood and forging an allliance. Secondly, they head to Texas where working together on the campaign of Katie’s father and ultimately fall in love. Finally, they head to England where life becomes completely different for Katie causing her to reconsider he desire to marry the prince.
