Colliding with a prince while dog walking isn’t how Rowan Palotay pictured meeting royalty, but then lately her life hasn’t gone according to plan. With one teensy tiny mistake, her job as a news reporter took a turn for the worse and now she’s lucky to have a small pet column in the local newspaper. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and magic, but she feels like she’s forever stuck on the naughty list.

Prince Theodore Chenery is in Marietta shortly after the death of his mother to meet his grandparents for the first time. When an accidental run-inβ€”literallyβ€”with Rowan leads to an unexpected friendship, he finds himself enchanted with the outspoken, feisty country girl. She’s unlike anyone he’s ever met and her special brand of kindness and honesty make it harder and harder to remember his obligations back home.

Rowan can’t afford one more mistake, and Theo’s future is already mapped out, but when they find it impossible to fight the passion and deep-rooted emotions between them, they discover what matters most. Until their relationship makes worldwide news… and Theo must decide whether to follow his heart, or his royal duty.


When not attached to her laptop, USA Today Bestselling Author Robin Bielman can almost always be found with her nose in a book. A California girl, the beach is her favorite place for fun and inspiration. Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can’t live without jumpstarts all of her story ideas.

She loves to go on adventures, and has skydived, scuba dived, parasailed, gotten lost in the wilderness (and only suffered a gazillion bug bites for it) hiked to waterfalls, and swam with dolphins. In her spare time she also likes to put her treadmill to good use while watching her favorite TV shows, take hikes with her hubby, indulge her sweet tooth, and play sock tug of war with her cute, but sometimes naughty dog, Harry.

She dreams of traveling to faraway places and loves to connect with readers. Keep in touch and sign up for her newsletter on her website at

Quickly, and without thinking, Theo sat down behind her, cradling her between his thighs and wrapping his arms around her waist. They both needed to get down the hill and this seemed like the best solution.
Her breath hitched, her body tensed.
β€œI thought we could do this last sled run as a team,” he said quietly. β€œBut if you’d rather—”
β€œIt’s okay.” She relaxed against him. β€œThis is good.”
Having her in his lap felt better than good. Even with a bulky jacket on, she was soft. Her hair smelled like citrus shampoo. And she fit.
β€œHere we go.” He shoved them off. They gathered speed quickly and Rowan’s sounds of glee made him smile inside and out as the wind rushed their faces.
They started to slow, the slope evening out. Theo shifted slightly and the heel of his boot got stuck in the snow for a second. They spun out of control, pitched to the side, and crash landed. Their bodies tangled, rolled as one, and came to a stop with him on top of her.
Worried he was crushing her, he quickly pushed up onto his elbows. Her eyes were closed and her long, black lashes almost reached the tops of her pink cheeks. Snow clung to her hair. He gulped. She was beautiful. β€œSorry about that. Are you okay?”
He was acutely aware of her chest rising and falling as she tortured him with silence for several seconds before finally opening her baby blues and saying, β€œThat. Was. Epic.” Then she broke into a fit of laughter.
And God, it made her even more beautiful. She wasn’t irritated or flustered by their crash, but tickled by it. He stared down at her, enjoying her sound and the crinkles in the corners of her eyes. His body covered hers, making contact in so many good places, making him hungry for more. He hadn’t meant to like Rowan as much as he did, but she was great, and every interaction elevated his attraction to her.
Any affection had to be buried, though. He had a life waiting for him back home.
The thought bothered him more than he cared to admit.
How could it not when she stopped laughing and any pretense of this being a simple friendship vanished? The way she looked up at him, with desire and playfulness, was one hell of an aphrodisiac. He imagined she saw the same expression mirrored back at her.
He slid one hand in her hair to cradle the back of her head. With his other hand, he cupped her cheek. He’d never wanted to kiss someone so badly. At the moment, he didn’t care about the consequences. If he didn’t get to make her lips sore, suck her tongue into his mouth, and find out what she tasted like, he’d regret it.
β€œRowan,” he whispered.
She reached up and brushed the hair off his forehead. β€œYes, Theo.”




β€’ Love or Duty?

Prince Theo came to spend a month in Marietta Montana, his mothers home town, to physically meet his grandparents for the first time in his life. After his mother met his father, she never returned to her childhood hometown again before her death, he promised her he would go visit. His first morning there he literally collides with a spunkily feisty young lady walking 4 dogs. Once untangled, one of the dogs urinates on his foot.
Rowan continues to make mistakes, even though she tries not to. Now she’s on her last chance at the local newspaper and forced to write a small pet column instead of what she should be writing. While at her dog walking job, yet again things happen out of her control. All four dogs tangle themselves as well as her with Prince Theodore Chenery, DEFINITELY NOT the way she wanted to meet any royalties. Now Rowan is hoping for some Christmas miracle to come her way.
Rowan and Theo form a strong friendship after their unusual meeting, and while she’s interviewing him for the newspaper. Their connection is stronger than just friendship though, but Theo has obligations back home that he must return for. What will happen between Theo and Rowan? What will he choose love or duty? You’ll have to read ONCE UPON A ROYAL CHRISTMAS to find out. I absolutely, thoroughly loved this story! I was hooked from page 1 and refused to put it down until I finished the entire book. This standalone story was my first Robin Bielman book, but it won’t be my last. I want to read the story of how Rowan’s brother Nick and her best friend Cassidy meet in FALLING FOR HER BACHELOR (Bachelor Auction Book#2), which has connecting characters with this story. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 17 and older! I received an ARC via IndieSage in exchange for an honest blog tour review.
