Becoming The Prince’s Wife
Harlequin Romance, Jun 3 2014, $5.99
Attorney Carolena Baretti joins her friend Abby formerly Loretto (see Expecting the Prince’s Baby) on the latter’s royal jet as they fly to the Riviera Principality of Gemelli. Also on board with them is Abby’s eight month old son Prince Maximiliano. Waiting for them is Abby’s husband Crown Prince Vincenzo Di Laurentis of the Principality of Arancia, his mother Queen Bianca and his grieving brother-in-law Prince Valentino Cavelli.
Carolena and Valentino are attracted to each other. However, he still mourns the death of his sister who was Vincenzo’s first wife, has a pledge to marry a royal and besides refuses to emulate his ex-brother-in-law by carousing with a taboo commoner. Still in spite of his efforts, they fall in love.
The second Princes of Europe contemporary is an entertaining romance starring two individuals not seeking love, but that certain feeling pairs them anyway. Although the overarching premise is similar to Expecting The Prince’s Baby sans the pregnancy, fans will enjoy the Riviera while appreciating the changing relationship between the royal and the commoner.
