The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy) by Elle Lothlorien

The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy)

The Frog Prince (A Romantic Comedy) by Elle Lothlorien just dropped in price on Amazon from $4.99 to $2.99. It's only available as an ebook and is self-published for those who are wary of that. However, there are plenty of positive reviews--and, no, they don't appear to be all by family and friends of the author.

As for me, I loved the cover and just wanted to put it here. I've added it to my Elliptical queue--books to read on my Kindle while I am exercising. I devour books when I am exercising and exercise longer and harder than if I am listening to music since books are my happiness. And when I am exercising the reading material can't be too heavy or serious so this sounds like a fun experiment...

Book description from the publisher:

It was his pheromones that did it. With one sniff, sex researcher Leigh Fromm recognizes that any offspring she might have with the mysterious stranger would have a better-than-average chance of surviving any number of impending pandemics.

But when Leigh finds out that the handsome “someone” at her great aunt’s wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts—not that she was intending to sleep with the guy. The royal house of Habsburg was once completely inbred, insanity and impotency among the highlights of their genetic pedigree. (The extreme “bulldog underbite” that plagued them wasn’t called the Habsburg Jaw for nothing.)

It doesn’t matter that his family hasn’t sat on a throne (other than the ones in their Toilette) since 1918, or that Austria is now a parliamentary democracy. Their lives couldn’t be more different: Roman is routinely mobbed by paparazzi in Europe. Leigh is regularly mocked for having the social skills of a potted plant. Even if she suddenly developed grace, charm and a pedigree that would withstand the scrutiny of the press and his family, what exactly is she supposed to do with this would-have-been king of Austria who is in self-imposed exile in Denver, Colorado?
