<b>Gruff Prince Rigo is Bella’s boss and strictly off limits…shame the attraction between them could melt the royal treasure!</b>

Human rights lawyer Prince Rigo of Altaleone returns home to solve the mystery of the royal murders. When the daughter of one of his suspects applies for a job at the palace, he takes the opportunity to keep his enemies closer. Lucky thing he's not distracted by her sassy irreverence or curvy beauty.

 Bella Beauvoir finds Rigo's brash manner and fierce presence unsettling. Still, the job lets her work close to home and raise funds for her animal sanctuary, so she resolves to ignore her feelings for the prickly prince. She’s good with animals so she should be able to manage the royal beast, right?

 Their research leads them on the trail of the murders—and into each others’ arms—until Bella realizes that her father is in Rigo’s cross-hairs…and Rigo has her right where he wants her.

 A convenient bride…

Royal heir Darias Leone needs a wife to claim his crown. He doesn’t want to get stuck with the kind of snooty princess his mother has in mind, so he makes a business arrangement with the pretty young assistant at his New York art gallery.

Emma Ricci thinks the idea is crazy, but the money Darias is offering will allow her to put her brother through drug rehab. Surely she can survive one year as a fake royal wife to save what’s left of her family?

After one year Emma and Darias can divorce and go their separate ways…unless something goes wrong with their plan. With a sizzling attraction, two unsolved murders, a mysterious secret society, and the constant forced proximity of a marriage under the eyes of the entire palace…almost anything could go wrong.

EXCERPT:

Darias watched her, dark eyes gleaming.

She wondered if he intended to say something for any potential eavesdroppers. “I love you,” perhaps. What else would real newlyweds whisper as they lay in bed together on their wedding night?

Sometimes it was hard to remember this was all fake. There was something magical about being folded into the bosom of this big family, when she was still reeling from the loss of her mom.

“You’re a very special woman.” His voice was low enough to be almost a conspiratorial whisper but probably loud enough to be picked up by recording equipment. Was he truly saying this to her, or was it for the benefit of snoopers?

“Thanks.” Did it really matter whether he meant it or not? He was paying her handsomely to be here, and she needed to do her job.

It would get easier over time, wouldn’t it?

Lifestyle blogger Serena Raines is used to giving advice on how to "live your best life", but finds herself alone and devastated when her fiancé leaves her. Not ready to share the news of her breakup with her family, she goes into hiding for Christmas alone at a luxurious beach house.

European royal Sandro Leone refuses to let his friends spend Christmas alone, so he rents a house for them to share—and finds a strange and lovely woman already there.

Serena is embarrassed to be discovered in her hideaway and fights a fierce attraction to the charming playboy prince. Things get worse when a surprise winter storm prevents his friends from arriving and leaves them stranded—together.

EXCERPT:

“We all make mistakes,” he said again in that infuriatingly therapeutic tone.

“Do we? I bet you don’t ever make mistakes.” She couldn’t get herself to sound calm. Emotion that had built up in her in the last few weeks, heck, maybe the last year—or maybe her whole life—exploded to the surface. “Why would you? You’re the handsome prince—the knight in shining armor—who any girl would welcome into her life. I bet you’ve never experienced a single moment of rejection.”

He watched her, bemused, and she fought a powerful urge to slap him hard across his handsome, arrogant face. “Have you?”

Her answer came in the form of a hard, hot kiss.

Sandro’s lips crushed over hers, and her protest evaporated instantly in the fire of his kiss. Her limbs grew weak as his big, strong arms wrapped around her. The warmth of his body enveloped her, and his musky, masculine scent overwhelmed her senses.

For a crazy instant she was able to just let go—of all the pain, the embarrassment, the disappointment, the secrecy, the uncertainty about herself and her future—and lose herself in the fierce intensity of his kiss.

A sudden gust of wind threw sand against them and stung her cheek hard enough for her to pull back. She stared at him, blinking, for a moment. Then her heart sank and shame flooded through her. “I guess you just proved my point.” 

"I was so enthralled by this book that I read it in one sitting."

"I love this author's writing. She creates characters that I care about and a romance that makes me sigh."
