About this ebook

Heartstopper • Exciting • Swoonworthy • Unputdownable

He’s the perfect bodyguard for the princess: strong and brave, loyal and hot, and her older brother’s best friend, except his entire life is a lie.

 Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of.

No one knew that he had been her first lover and broken her heart.

 Princess Flicka von Hannover is on the run from her cheating husband (soon to be ex) who did the unforgivable. The only person she can trust is her bodyguard who’d always been there when she needed him, and they run.

 And as they run, old feelings begin to resurface, and now they have something else to hide.

 Fast-paced and suspenseful, the Princess and the Bodyguard series is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride across Europe and the US, another heart-stopping story from Blair Babylon, author of “Thrillers that Bang.”

 This special boxed set edition contains the first two books of the Princess and the Bodyguard series, Once Upon a Time and In Shining Armor in one convenient book.

Once upon a Time Blair has another masterpiece! On the outside, Flicka lives the life a princess should, but looks are definitely deceiving. She makes fundraising for charities, and wedding planning look like child’s play. On the inside, she just wants to be free of the whole princess world and just be a normal person, and be able to walk around freely, and maybe play the piano. Dieter’s story is also entwined with Flicka’s. They have a shared history of more than just him being her brother’s best friend and her bodyguard. They spent some spectacular time together until he suddenly broke it off, and broke both their hearts. This book does have some background information for some of Blair’s previous books. If you’ve read her other In Disguise series, these bits of information just put together more pieces of the puzzle that Blair has concocted for all of her readers. It also brings back other favorite characters for readers to re-connect with. This book takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Be ready to laugh, cry, be angry, totally surprised and wanting more! May 8th can’t come soon enough. In Shining Armor What do you find in the muck??? If you are Flicka, a Knight in Shining Armor! We’ve all made mistakes, done things that we regret, and wish we could do over. Flicka and Dieter are no different than the rest of us. They both have things that they regret, wishing that they could just turn back the clock, and make the “right” decisions. Flicka is trying to escape from Pierre, who is obsessed with keeping his place in the royal line, and will do anything it takes to try and make sure it happens. Dieter says that his life started when he joined the military. He has done things is the past he’s ashamed of so now, he is doing his best to be a better man. Dieter has been keeping her safe for years so when Flicka needs protection, Dieter is the person she turns to. The past and present collide and the sparks fly. We find out quite a lot about their earlier interactions, and how they ended up together. Many of the missing pieces of their story are answered in this book. The information helps, but also leaves you with more questions, and just wishing for more. This part of their story does have a cliffhanger, but the next book will be out soon. (Not soon enough, for Blair fans, but in a couple of weeks) I certainly recommend this book. Blair’s stories never disappoint and the story just keeps getting better. I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review, but also purchased this book.

ONCE UPON A TIME: It’s been a few years since I’d read the story of Wulf and Rae’s wedding (in Blair’s Billionaires in Disguise series), so I was excited for the chance to revisit the drama, angst and suspense of that intriguing occasion through the eyes of Wulf’s sister, Princess Flicka von Hannover. Flicka’s always been a force unto herself – strong-willed, dynamic, gutsy and determined, but now we also see her vulnerability, despite the ‘shiny suit of princess armour’ that she wears. We gain a little insight into Dieter’s past, but he remains for the most part, a man of action and few words. IN SHINING ARMOR: The story picks up as Dieter scrambles to get Flicka to safety after her newly-minted husband Pierre, revealed his true intentions, along with his true nature, on their wedding night. I enjoyed learning of Flicka’s childhood and teenage years, along with the role Dieter played as her protector, friend and then later, as her first lover. Dieter’s mysterious past surfaces, setting off a chain reaction which will no doubt bring additional danger to his door. I loved these first two books in the Princess and the Bodyguard series! They’re well written with plenty of sarcastic humour, drama, angst, secrets, duplicity and suspense, along with several steamy encounters. I’m looking forward to the next adventure in this gripping tale: ‘In A Faraway Land’.

I read and reviewed the books included in this box set when they were first published. Here are some of my thoughts from back then: Once Upon a Time: Because I'm a reader who generally hates cliffhangers, I feel I must disclose that this is the first 5 books and you will definitely be left wanting more after reading it. But there's something other than the wonderful writing that keeps me reading Blair's books – even with cliffhangers – she has never yet failed to complete a series and she releases the books fairly close together so you aren't kept waiting forever for the next one. It's hard for me talk about this story without giving too much away. Flicka married her prince but things aren't good. They had an agreement but he broke the rules and now she has to get away. Fans have been begging Blair to write Flicka's story and also one for another favorite character who's been around since the first BID story. It was a wonderful shock to find this much beloved character a prominent part of Flicka's story. Flicka is a one-woman dynamo. Her organizational skills are awesome. Yes, she has unlimited help to carry out her wishes, but she is the ultimate organizer. It's just a shame that she isn't able to reorganize her life with the same efficiency. I laughed and I cried while reading this much anticipated story In Shining Armor: In Shining Armor is book two of the Runaway Princess series and it picks up where book one left off, the aftermath of Flicka's encounter with her horrible, soon-to-be ex-husband. She awakens hurting all over and it takes her a bit to remember what happened. While Blair Babylon does a pretty good job of recapping some of the things from Once Upon a Time you really need to read it first. Dieter is working to arrange things so that they can get out of the country; no small feat since Flicka doesn't have her passport. We also learn a bit more about Dieter in this one; he's not exactly who he says he is. Dieter would die to protect Flicka but it still hurts him to be lying to his best friend, Wulf, who is also Flick's brother. He must lie because there is too much danger for Flicka if others know where she is; her ex-husband has said he will kill her if she won't come back and live with him in Monaco. This book is an adventure ride as well as a continuation of the love story between Flicka and Dieter. How they get out of the country, and then how they nearly don't elude the bad guys, kept me on the edge of my seat during much of the story.
