Alex, son of the United States' first female president, and Henry, a prince of England, have had an antagonistic rivalry going on for years. When their latest social encounter leads to a tussle and to the upset of a royal wedding cake, their PR folks intervene to rebrand their relationship to one of best friends instead of worst enemies. Forced into making public appearances together, each grudgingly begins to admit that his trans-Atlantic counterpart is not as unbearable as previously thought...quite the opposite, in fact.

My summary absolutely does not do this book justice. It is a most charming, funny, delightful and adorable love story, and I'm thrilled that it arrived for me at the library during the week of Valentine's Day! Although the "enemies" portion of the enemies-to-lovers trope felt a teeny bit forced, the author earned points from me for avoiding, early on, The Misunderstanding That Serves to Provide Necessary Conflict. Cooler heads prevailed — imagine! Highly recommended, in February or at any other time of year.
