Publisher's Summary

It was his pheromones that did it. With one sniff, sex researcher Leigh Fromm recognizes that any offspring she might have with the mysterious stranger would have a better-than-average chance of surviving any number of impending pandemics. But when Leigh finds out that the handsome "someone" at her great aunt's wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts - not that she was intending to sleep with the guy. The royal house of Habsburg was once completely inbred, insanity and impotency among the highlights of their genetic pedigree. (The extreme "bulldog underbite" that plagued them wasn't called the Habsburg Jaw for nothing.)
It doesn't matter that his family hasn't sat on a throne (other than the ones in their Toilette) since 1918, or that Austria is now a parliamentary democracy. Their lives couldn't be more different: Roman is routinely mobbed by paparazzi in Europe. Leigh is regularly mocked for having the social skills of a potted plant. Even if she suddenly developed grace, charm and a pedigree that would withstand the scrutiny of the press and his family, what exactly is she supposed to do with this would-have-been king of Austria who is in self-imposed exile in Denver, Colorado?
A handsome prince, gut-busting laughs, love, dirty ballroom dancing, pathetic commoners, sex factoids, Vienna palaces, cursing in German, random hilarity, little to no frogs. See why tens of thousands of readers have fallen in love with this Amazon best seller! Because someday your prince will come...sort of.

A Modern Day Fairy Tale

When I first read the e-book version of The Frog Prince, I fell in love. Leigh Fromm is a sex researcher who is an awkward girl trapped in a super model's body. And then she meets an honest to goodness almost-royal, Roman Habsburg von Lorraine of Austria. Between Leigh's inability to not blurt out whatever she's thinking when she's nervous and Roman's good-natured lovability, there's not much to not love about this book.

When I learned from Elle's Facebook page that an audio version was being recorded, I was ecstatic. I listen to books at work during my busy season to help me get through the 9-10 hour days I have to put in and was ready to add The Frog Prince to my collection. I was not disappointed!

Leah Frederick, a happy coincidence of shared given names with the main character, does an admirable job of reading the book. With all those German words, it couldn't have been an easy time in the studio for Ms. Frederick, and I can only give her kudos for having done so with such aplomb. I'm sure with time and more experience, she'll become even better at her craft (I must note that I have not listened to any of the other books she's read as of yet).

If you're a fan of romantic comedies, witty authors, and fairy tale endings, you should definitely purchase this audiobook.
