Canadian Jordan Haines is on vacation in the Caribbean. After the summer he's had, a couple months of fun in the sun is just what the doctor ordered. What he didn't count on was meeting a beautiful woman on a private beach - or falling hard.
Crown Princess Astrid of San Majoria seems to lead a charmed life. Just like everyone, there's tragedy in her past, but she lives in a palace, has aides to do everything - and paparazzi hounding her private moments. Her sanctuary on her family's beach is broken one day when a tired windsurfer takes refuge in her cove - and works his way into her heart.
But it's just a summer fling, isn’t it?
After all, Jordan will be returning to Canada before long, won't he?
When pictures of the two of them, and what looks like an engagement ring, appear in the tabloids, they have to deal with fallout - and the beginnings of a real relationship. Secrets kept become hearts broken as they try to discover if Jordan really has the heart of a prince.

Heart of a Prince by Carol Moncado was exactly what I needed after reading Child of Dust.
This book was a sweet romance story involving a princess and a Canadian. The tone of the book was lighthearted, but with a touch of suspense. Astrid had a tragic past, losing her husband to an accident before she could tell him she was pregnant. The main part of the story starts two years later. Jordan was a hockey-loving Canadian who also enjoyed a number of other sports, though he was limited in how much he could do due to heart issues. Sophia is Astrid’s delightful daughter. I loved the way Jordan brought his love for hockey into so many things, even teaching 20 month old Sophia how to play. The tentative relationship between Jordan and Astrid that was constantly changing as she struggled with whether he could be trusted was touching and realistic. Jordan was the perfect hero, trying to learn how to fit into the world of royalty and the public.
The story was told from both Jordan’s and Astrid’s viewpoints in a third-person narrative, switching back and forth between their perspectives.
Though there are characters in this book from other books by Carol Moncado, this book can stand alone.
