An "effervescent" (Rachel Lynn Solomon) stand-alone Christmas LGBTQIA+ New Adult RomCom, perfect for fans of Schitt's Creek and Red White & Royal Blue.


Matthew Prince is young, rich, and thoroughly spoiled. So what if his parents barely remember he exists and the press is totally obsessed with him? He's on top of the world. But one major PR misstep later, and Matthew is cut off and shipped away to spend the holidays in his grandparents' charming small town hellscape. Population: who cares?

It's bad enough he's stuck in some festive winter wonderland—it's even worse that he has to share space with Hector Martinez, an obnoxiously attractive local who's unimpressed with anything and everything Matthew does.

Just when it looks like the holiday season is bringing nothing but heated squabbles, the charity gala loses its coordinator and Matthew steps in as a saintly act to get home early on good behavior…with Hector as his maddening plus-one. But even a Grinch can't resist the unexpected joy of found family, and in the end, the forced proximity and infectious holiday cheer might be enough to make a lonely Prince's heart grow three sizes this year.

While part of a series, this book stands alone.

Praise For…

"[You’re a Mean One, Matthew Prince] is a sweet, sexy holiday romp." — Booklist

"This is holiday rom-com perfection. Sparkling with a gloriously fresh, witty voice and timely messages of healing and hopeful new beginnings, YOU'RE A MEAN ONE, MATTHEW PRINCE is tender, sexy, and deeply heartfelt—a new all-time favorite!

" — Chloe Liese, author of the Bergman Brothers series

"YOU'RE A MEAN ONE, MATTHEW PRINCE is a funny, heartwarming pop of Christmas sparkle with a protagonist whose selfish ways are so entertaining to read that I'm almost sorry he can't be bad forever—but with as funny as Matthew is when he's wicked, his redemption arc is equally satisfying, sweet as a chai sugar cookie, and I was rooting for him and Hector, as well as the whole town, from the moment Matthew Prince stepped into Wind River in his Gucci boots." — Sarah Hogle author of You Deserve Each Other and Twice Shy
