Royal Holiday by Jasmine Guillory

When Vivian Forest is given the opportunity to join her daughter to the country "cottage" of the British Royal family, she reluctantly agrees to go. Upon arriving at the this cottage, however, she meets Malcolm Hudson, the ultra-handsome private secretary to the Queen herself! And sparks fly instantly for both as Malcolm introduces Vivian to many new experiences, and Vivian brings out a fun playfulness in Malcolm that he hasn't felt in years.

The playful yet mature banter between Malcolm and Vivian was so enjoyable and it made me giggle out loud many times throughout the story. Guillory has a great way of portraying relationships perfectly as they should be, but also keeping them realistic by creating practical obstacles for the couple to hash through and overcome. Vivian and Malcolm are two extremely likable characters whom you root for from the very beginning. This is just the book to kick off a fun and flirty holiday season!
