He makes my heart do the tango and my head wants to explode. In other words, it’s just another day working for Prince Malcolm.
Give me a problem and I’ll fix it. That’s what I do. The trick is remaining calm and preparing oneself for any eventuality. But even I failed to anticipate my former boss, Malcolm, crossing an ocean to bribe me for my help. He insists I’m the only one who can fix his problem, but I had an excellent reason for leaving that job in the first place and putting an ocean between us. It’s hard to keep the big picture in mind when you’re secretly in love with your boss. And even harder when he’s about to be crowned a king.
Being a prince certainly has its perks: money, cars, women, and a license to do just about anything I please. But since my assistant, Alice, resigned out of the blue, I’ve been unable to find my footing and have admittedly been a bit cranky. When a problem arises calling for the utmost discretion, it’s clear Alice is the only woman for the job. But she’s less than thrilled at being coerced into returning, and she’s doing her best to make me pay for it. With the clock ticking down to my coronation, I’m putting all my trust in her to see me through. But the stakes are getting higher because Alice is beginning to look more like my future than even the throne I was born to take.
My Review:Stealing Kisses with a King was a very cute read. I enjoyed the cuteness of it all.
Alice has been in love with the prince for a couple years, but she knew he would never notice her. After an incident where she took the fall for one of his negative incidents she quit her job, cut all communication, and moved to the states. Now she's working in North Carolina and doing what she does best, problem solving. Except her problem is that Malcolm doesn't know how to take no for an answer and shows up at her door begging her to come back and help him.
Malcolm hasn't been the same since Alice left. He misses her like he lost a limb and no matter how productive his new assistant is, she isn't Alice. When he finally gets ahold of her contact information he flies across the ocean to beg for her to come back. When that doesn't work? Bribery. He'll help her save her new job from financial ruin and she'll work for him until coronation time.
I thought this story was cute and well done. Alice very much wants to help her new boss succeed and doesn't want to be babysitting the man she loves anymore. I liked how she put up boundaries with her and Malcolm and that she wasn't afraid to call him out.
Malcolm was probably my least favorite character. He was just so immature and while he did step up towards the end, I wish we could have seen a slower growth versus a snap character growth.

Meet Sylvie Stewart
She hails from the great state of North Carolina, so it’s no surprise that most of her books are set in the Tar Heel state. She’s a wife to a hilarious dude and mommy to ten-year-old twin boys who tend to take after their father in every way. Sylvie often wonders if they’re actually hers, but then she remembers being a human incubator for a gazillion months. Ah, good times.
Sylvie began publishing when her kids started elementary school, and she loves sharing her stories with readers and hopefully making them laugh and swoon a bit along the way. If she’s not in her comfy green writing chair, she’s probably camping or kayaking with her family or having a glass of wine while binge-watching Hulu. Or she’s been kidnapped—so what are you doing just sitting there?!!
