Being close in proximity quickly has sparks flying between these two; but, as secrets are revealed their budding relationship is put at risk. This was one of those stories where I knew immediately that it was going to be damn good…and it was. Elsborg didn't let me down on this one.
This story sucked me in immediately and got me emotionally involved with the characters. My heart broke for Lili for what she had to endured throughout the story and I just wanted to give her a good ol' hug. However, I was glad that she eventually stood up for herself in the end and shed the skin of the docile woman that she was and grew into a headstrong individual.
Lili and Grant were also great as a couple. I loved watching them together as they opened up to one another and of course, who can forget those steamy love scenes! These two together created enough sparks to light a bonfire!
Love In One Night
I happily cheered for them from the beginning until the very end. I had to admit I teared up a bit at the end as it was a wonderful ending to the story which left a smile on my face. All in all, The Princess and the Prepper was a fantastic read. I devoured it quickly and sighed in contentment after the story ended because it was just so good. It most definitely is a must read! I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. A modern day fairytale, The Princess and the Prepper by Barbara Elsborg deals with a runaway princess who's looking for Prince Charming in the frozen wilderness of Wyoming.
With likable characters, good dialogue and just the right amount of sexual heat, Ms. Elsborg's tale grabbed my attention from the first page and never let go. While a part of the "Prepper Romance" series, this can ea I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. While a part of the "Prepper Romance" series, this can easily be read as a standalone book. Running away from the life she's being forced to live, Princess Liliane "Lili" Johanna Charlotte Helene zu Saxe-Melckenburghausen finds herself almost naked in the middle of nowhere Wyoming.
Knowing she'll die if she doesn't reach shelter, Lili is relieved to be rescued by a man and his wolf. Staying in a rustic cabin without servants isn't what she's used to, but it's the only place she discovers she wants to be.. Especially with the man who rescued her. Successful author Grant Thomas Houston lives in a cabin in Wyoming for a reason - he wants to be alone. Having spent the last couple of years alone, Grant is a "Prepper", someone who knows what he needs to survive in the woods without being dependent on others.
He never expected to rescue a woman while out walking in the forest with a wolf he's adopted as his own. Being attracted to her is out of his control, wanting her to stay is an unexpected surprise. Full of subdued passion and physical attraction, the scenes between Lili and Grant are full of verbal give and take. Hiding who and what she is, Lili is finally free to act like a what she is - a woman who needs to be loved, while Grant slowly begins to let her into his heart.
Elsborg does a good job developing the characters, they slowly reveal themselves and some of their issues to each other and to the reader as well. I was able to connect with Lili and her problems. I was also able to understand why Grant has hidden from the world for so long. Will Lili and Grant be able to save her from the villain when he finally shows up? And will they have a chance to have a happy ever after? You'll have to read The Princess and the Prepper to find out. I enjoyed this rapidly paced romance and I think you will too.
This is ultimately a story about loss and two people recovering from their losses through the healing power of love. These are likable people who have gone through horrendous experiences and grab on to the one moment of happiness that presents itself.
Finding Mercy (Evans Point, #1) by D.L. Jackson
They appear opposites at first but their mutual pain brings them together in a night of steaminess that leads to an unexpected, yet completely satisfying conclusion. Lili was the child her parents never really wanted. She never lived up to their exp This is ultimately a story about loss and two people recovering from their losses through the healing power of love.

He's been hiding out after the loss of his family with only a wolf for company. He doesn't like the chaos she brings with her to his quiet life or lonely heart but he can't turn away a damsel in distress. She brings a smile to his face and forces him to deal with his demons. He's scared of being forced into living again but knows he can't let the bit of light she's brought to his darkness go no matter how different they appear. This story is a modern-day fairytale where the Princess is rescued by the handsome hero.
This hero is slightly tarnished though and the Princess isn't picture perfect. Their path to a HEA starts out steamy with a bit of desperation attached to it and leads into an entire hometown standing up for what's right in a completely heartwarming conclusion. Elsborg is a master at pulling at the reader's heart strings and this book once again leaves me believing in fairytales and her on my must read list. The Princess and the Prepper Poor Lili, she has fled one man and found herself in a worse situation, one that could only get worse if she ended up walking down a snowing road wearing only her underwear - things got worse!
Luckily for her Grant and Shadow are nearby to rescue her. Grant is living isolated in a cabin trying to escape memories of his past and is not sure he wants to deal with Lili's intrusion into his life. This was highly entertaining as you find out the stories behind Lili and Gra The Princess and the Prepper Poor Lili, she has fled one man and found herself in a worse situation, one that could only get worse if she ended up walking down a snowing road wearing only her underwear - things got worse!
This was highly entertaining as you find out the stories behind Lili and Grant both have rough pasts for completely different reasons, Lili has a family she would like to ignore and Grant has a family that he is ignoring and yet they find common ground and involve them selves in some nicely steamy sex!! It makes you want to be in a log cabin with a roaring log fire whilst it snows outside For any people, like me, who don't know what a "prepper" is, its someone who is prepared to be self sufficient in the event of a major catastrophe however this has very little bearing on the story so don't let it put you off!
I would give this 4 out of 5 stars Petra complimentary book given for a free review. The Princess and The Prepper is a new twist on the finding your prince charming. When Princess Lili finally gets up the nerve to escape her abusive fiance she jumps out of the frying pan into the fire, that is until she is rescued by Grant and his semi-tame wolf.

Grant has isolated himself, he has had some personal tragedy and has hidden away from family, friends and life in his isolated cabin, he doesn't want the disruption that saving Lili will bring but he sure can't just let her die in the snow.
Elsborg is able with The Princess and The Prepper to take a novella length story and tell a rich and full tale of love, loss, abandonment and redemption. We are treated to likable and identifiable characters that don't fit your everyday romance tale. The Princess and The Prepper gives us the sexual tension and hot sexy scenes we crave along with a bit of comic relief and even family healing all packed into a read in an afternoon length book. I would love to see future stories in this same town along this same story line and would love to catch a glimpse of what happens with Lili and Grant's relationship down the road.

My Boogie Woogie Bugle Guy. Last Flight of the Ark. My only complaint was the ending. I need to know a little more about what was left unresolved. Dane and Sara and their conflicts are wrapped up perfectly. It was the other trying for spoiler free that I need to know more about. So without another book Escape to My Arms really needed an epilogue. Jul 15, gillian Tattooed Book Review rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review and more at www.
I love these stories; the combination of survivalism and romance. Escape to my Arms has a sexy hero, a strong heroine, plenty of action and danger, and some great, steamy scenes. Dane is one of my favorite types of men; sexy, rugged, protective, and not afraid to get his hands dirty. Sara is a great compliment to his ruggedness.

Feminine, with vulnerability, and a surprising and admirable strength and determination. But things start to heat up when Sara asks Dane to teach her to fight: Can two people find love as society as we know it is is crumbling around them? Just for a few minutes, I want to stop being afraid and feel something else. I want to feel that something with you.

When she hurts her knee and has to stay with him for a couple of days the sexual tension rises. I love the preppers tv shows and so a prepper romance like Escape to My Arms is right up my alley. I love that mixed into the love story and the post-apocalyptic world you can read some of the things that Dane and Sara have done to prepare for a break down of society. Dane and Sara have sexual attraction in spades but Sara has made a promise to her family never to reveal the preparations they have made for just such an occasion.
With Sara being a part of a prepper family and this the story of her journey to safety I am hopeful that we will get future stories of the rest of the family or maybe others like them. I enjoyed Escape to My Arms a great deal. I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Apr 19, Brandy Dorsch rated it it was amazing.
What a great story! Heather always knows how to wrap you up in a story! Sara is the type of person I would like to be. Always prepared and ready for anything. When the worst actually happens, Sara believes she is prepared and heads to the safety of her familys bunker. What she doesn't take into consideration is that she didn't fill her gas tank and the highway is a parking lot. Dane realizes something is going on when he sees the news and heads back to his cabin in the woods.
Escape to My Arms
He wasn't expecting What a great story! He wasn't expecting to find a lost woman there. Taking Sara back to his cabin is the right thing to do. Sara knows the fate of her family is in her hands.
Trust is not an option. This is a short read and I have to say it really makes you wonder. I would love to have more from this couple! Aug 28, C. Szarek rated it liked it. This is a new author for me, and I really enjoyed this novella. It was a quick read and the storyline with something that's a very current topic today. It's definitely different you don't see too many prepper novels out there, and I enjoyed the characters. I hope that there are more books in this series and I can't wait to read the second one.
