Sofia Burska is just a normal young woman working as a journalist. She really needs a big story though to gain a promotion to help pay off her mountain of school loans. Her boss decides to give her the assignment of going to Mondoverde to meet with Prince Stefano and get an exclusive story. Prince Stefano Graziani knows who he is and accepts his royal responsibilities, with God's help, of caring and ruling the people of Mondoverde. Knowing it's time to marry and produce an heir has caused him great anxiety. He wants to marry for love but knows that that's impossible, until he meets Sofia. Stefan is immediately taken with Sophia but she's a reporter and Stefan doesn't like or trust reporters. Sophia has never met a man quite as handsome and charming as Stefano. The problem is, he's a prince and she's a commoner. Nothing can ever be between them, or can it?

I loved this story with its charming characters and fairy tale type storyline. You'll find yourself quickly immersed in the lives of Sophia and Stefan. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each of them as well as the Graziani family. Though they are royalty, they are a God-fearing family you just enjoy spending time with. Stefan is a swoon-worthy hero. Strong, gentle, romantic – yep – all the things you want in a hero. Sophia was really a great gal to get to know. She was down-to-earth with a genuine sweetness about her that just made you want to be her friend, even if I did want to shake some sense into her sometimes. The romantic tension between them absolutely sizzled, which I loved! Though Sophia and Stefan were believers, they struggled with many of the same issues we struggle with, which I appreciated. We learn that God is always with us so we need not be afraid, that’s encouraging! You will love the ending and find yourself longing for the next installment. Really this story would make a great Hallmark movie. If you enjoy a good romance, one that will carry you away from chores you really don't want to do anyway, then I would highly recommend a trip to Mondoverde. I enjoyed my visit and can't wait to go back.
