Julie Garwood's historical romance is so much better than her modern day stuff, and 'Castles' is a great example. It's romantic, exciting and very funny.
Aristocrat Colin comes home to find a princess in his house. He instantly suspects his father of matchmaking. Princess Alesandra is beautiful rich and kind, yet she and Colin fall into childish squabbling and pinching each other at every opportunity. They are great characters. Alesandra is likeable but a bit of a sook. Colin issues dry one liners. The adoring butler is thrilled to have royalty in his household. In the background is an evil ruler who wants to abduct Alesandra.
I don't know why this author's HR is so much more fun than her modern stuff, but I highly recommend all her historical novels. If you have not read the wonderful 'The Bride' and 'The Wedding', I would start there.
