‘A fairy-tale romance to warm even the coldest of hearts.’ - Chloe’s Chick Lit Reviews

Teresa Adler is the ultimate Ice Princess, with a heart as frozen as the winter landscape of her beloved home, Westerwald. All her life, she’s belonged to the ‘inner circle’ of wealth, privilege and position.

Christian Taylor: Heartthrob. Movie Star. Bad Boy. The mischievous actor sets temperatures soaring in the picturesque baroque principality – and with a wicked glint in his eye and a chip on his shoulder he sets his sights on the one thing he’s told he can’t have. Teresa.

While Tessa holds the ultimate clue to the secret of Christian’s parentage, it is the heat of his touch that will make this Ice Princess feel more alive than she ever has before…

My Thoughts:

When I started To Catch a Star, I wasn't sure what I got myself into. I love the premise of the story with the bad boy movie star with a chip on his shoulder again aristocrat and the Ice Princess. That is the making of a good story. Plus, the cover is absolutely adorable. I think that is what really sold me. Anyway, I started the book and it was a little slow to get into. Granted there was all this tension between Christian and Teresa and it was bound to explode. However, there was a lot of build. Both of them had prejudice against one another. What changed my feelings about the story was when they both started open up and they started to understand one another.

So, we have Christian and Teresa starting to understand one another, and you would think they would automatically jump into bed. *Possible Spoiler* However, there is one element that is missing and that is Teresa is engaged. Now you are thinking how is this going to work. Trust me I was thinking the same thing. Truth be told I was a little worry.

Anyway, by the time I got to the middle of To Catch a Star the progress of the story started to speed up and I enjoyed the relationship that was developing between Christian and Teresa. Truth be told I did enjoyed the book, because by the end it gave me the happy-ever-after. So, if you are looking for something with a little drama, but not enough to stress you out with a happy ending, you might consider reading To Catch a Star.

Author Info
I've always written stories for myself but didn't even think of being an author until I realized that being over thirty and living in a fantasy world was a little odd. Writing those same stories for other people makes it a lot more acceptable!
By day I dress in cargo pants and boots for my not-so-glamorous job of making movies but at night I come home to my two little Princesses, and I get to write Happy Ever Afters. Since I believe every girl is a princess, and every princess deserves a happy ending, what could be more perfect?
Though my heart lies in Europe, I'm not too good with the cold, so I live in sunny South Africa.
