Overview
First in a new series
From New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister comes a series about finding your own wonderland--through one roadblock at a time....

Nothing about Alice Wood's life is normal right now. Her fiance, Patrick, called off their wedding and relationship only days before their nonrefundable wedding trip. And though a luxurious European river cruise for one is just what she needs, it's not what she gets....
Due to a horrible misunderstanding, Alice is now cramped in her -romantic- suite with one of Patrick's friends. Instead of cruising along the Rhine, Main, and Danube rivers sipping champagne with the love of her life, she's navigating the waters with a strange--yet mysteriously handsome--British aristocrat.
A baron of dubious wealth--and not-so-dubious debt--Elliot Ainslie is just looking forsome alone time to write the books that keep his large family afloat. But his stodgy, serious self is about to be sidetracked by a woman who seems to have jumped out of the pages of a fairy tale, one who is determined to shake up his life...and include him in her own happily ever after.

MacAlister’s first Ainslie Brothers contemporary is witty, charming, and erotically tender, although plagued with one subplot too many. Alice Wood’s aggravating fiancé, Patrick, dumps her right before a planned trip, and Alice bravely decides to go by herself. Unfortunately, she finds on arrival that she will not be alone on her romantic river cruise through Europe—Patrick gave away his ticket. Baron Elliott Ainslie, manager of his family’s estate, just wants a quiet place to write a book away from his 11 siblings, crumbling castle, and chaotic finances. But sharing a cabin and tour group with the vivacious and attractive Alice seems likely to distract him completely. MacAlister (You Slay Me) inexplicably throws in an espionage element that serves only to detract from the sparkling romance. Alice and Elliott are endearing, and the comedic potential of the situation is played to the hilt. This confection only rarely falls off the edge between silly and too silly; most of it is a treat. (Jan.)
