Sarah & Vittorio (Royals of Valleria #9)
Royals of Valleria
Princess Sarah of Valleria, ambassador to Italy, has been known to date a man or two in her time (though not at the same time—well, except that once, which was completely an accident), and she makes no apologies for it. One morning, however, she wakes up with a sexy man in her bed who turns out to be an Italian prince.
A prince looking beyond her royal mask.
Prince Vittorio ‘Rio’ Baziano never thought a night at a charity ball would end up with him in bed with a wildcat. When morning dawns, and it becomes clear she isn’t just the flighty socialite he thought she was, and he isn’t the random Italian she thought he was, they both begin to see other in a new light.
Can a one-night stand become one night of forever?
Once the press picks up on their royal romance, and the pictures and videos start circulating from the night before, they decide the best thing to do is to ride out the scrutiny. They’ll fake a fairytale romance for one month, and then they’ll part ways. One month to manage the fallout and convince royal relations to back their scheme. One month to pretend to like each other, then break up gracefully.
One month isn’t so long at all, is it? After all, it’s not like they’ll fall in love with each other.
With the paparazzi on their tails and their families reacting in devious and threatening ways, can they look past the fake to forever?
This novel features a fake royal romance that may turn real, one royal family that loves one another (even while they annoy each other), and a look behind fictional palace walls.
This is a standalone book in the series with no cliffhanger, and features extra sexy scenes and swearing. Emotional trigger warning: discussion of potential assault.
