With a secret agenda and an identity-obscuring veil, Miri Montgomery tricked His Royal Highness into marriage. Sources say Prince Brandt did not uncover her deception until after the royal wedding night…a night one palace insider claims was quite steamy! Could Miri be plotting against her husband to steal his throne? Would Brandt dare to demand an annulment? Or do the raven-haired beauty and the stoically sexy prince have a hidden history the nation knows nothing about?
Reminded me a little of Barbara Cartland’s work, especially the beginning with the “bridal swap”. I haven’t read the rest of the trilogy, but I wouldn’t mind doing that. I won’t rush out to find the previous two books, but if I happen to stumble upon them, sure, I’ll give them a try.
This was a good example of “template writing” for SD, if you ask me. We have a love-conflict, a misunderstanding, self-sacrifice for honor, royal blood, court intrigue...It needs quite a bit of disbelief suspension, but it’s still good for reading on an afternoon when you’re not in the mood to read anything “heavier”.
