Dear Reader

Dear Reader,

THE PRINCE SHE KISSED IN PARIS is my debut royal romance with Harlequin Romance. Kicking off the story in Paris was a no-brainer; it was my husband’s and my first international trip together. I fell in love with the old architecture, the iconic landmarks, and just the overall feel of the city.

It was a lot easier to write the chapters set in Paris than creating the country of Kelna, although I learned so much about world-building throughout this process! Kelna was inspired by the country of Croatia, a stunning setting that is now on my travel bucket list.

I also want to give a shout-out to my incredible sister-in-law Rachel, for helping bring Madeline and her passion for architecture to life. Rachel is an architect in the Pacific Northwest and has worked on everything from museums to embassies. She was a wonderful resource on how design processes, site visits, and construction work, and let me get away with some twisting of how an actual timeline would progress!

I hope you enjoy Madeline and Nicholai’s romance. Happy reading, and have a wonderful summer!

Love, Scarlett

an excerpt

The elevator dinged. The doors slid open and she brushed past him.


The sound of her name, uttered in that husky accent, slid over her. Heat pricked her eyes as she remembered how he’d said her name last night, of how special she’d felt under the magic of a Parisian sky.

She whipped around. He stood in the door of the elevator, one arm braced against the frame, a thunderous expression on his face.

“Don’t worry. I’m going to pretend like last night never happened. As far as you and I are concerned, we met for the first time this morning. I won’t say anything to anyone, including my team, reporters or anyone else you’re concerned might find out. If you can treat me with slightly more respect and politeness, then we’ll get along just fine.”

He sighed and scrubbed a hand over his jaw.


“Have a good day.” She punched the button to close the door, grateful when he stepped back.

And couldn’t resist one last parting shot. She grasped her skirt in her hands and dropped into a deep curtsy as the doors started to slide shut. “Your Highness.”

about the author

From sneaking behind the shelves of her local library to read a few pages of romance to absconding with her mom’s copy of A Rose in Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss, Scarlett has loved romance for as long as she can remember. By day, she works in public relations. By night, she powers through her most hated chore (laundry) and writes sweet, contemporary romance with strong heroes and the fierce heroines who make them realize true love really is possible.

When she’s not reading or writing, she’s wrangling her two little ones while trying yet again to plant a vegetable garden, visiting her husband at the fire station, or sitting on her front porch savoring a cup of hot tea and the sight of the Midwestern countryside.
