The Princess Must Marry
Princess Laurentia leads a fairy-tale life, attending glittering balls and wearing beautiful gowns. But after the ball is over, Laurentia finds herself getting into bed…alone. She dutifully agrees to choose a husband, but when she casts her eyes over her sea of suitors, she doesn’t see a single man worthy enough to claim her.
Who Will She Choose?
She is swept off her feet by Prince Dominick, soldier of fortune, black sheep of his family…and the man hired to protect her. He’s brazen enough to steal her kisses, yet tender enough to soothe her with one touch. He makes no promises, speaks no vows of forever and hides a dark deception…yet Laurentia can’t help but hope that her prince has finally arrived.
Mystery and anonymity shielded the solitary, sumptuously dressed lady staying at Europe’s most exclusive spa, but Prince Danior of Baminia recognizes her. She is the princess of Serephinia … and his long-lost fiancée. The future of their kingdoms depends on their marriage, and Danior is determined to unite their troubled nations — whether the runaway princess wishes to or not.
English orphan Evangeline Scoffield has spent her life contenting herself with dreams. But with an unforeseen inheritance, she can afford one perfect summer. So she buys elegant clothes, travels abroad, and begins a deliciously exciting masquerade … until, that is, a furious stranger appears claiming her as his own.
Her denials count for nothing. He will do anything to have her. Seduce her, abduct her, or when danger explodes about them, flee with his unwilling bride into a world of peril, promise and passion.
