Mariah Eller was only trying to save her inn from being trashed. So how did the widow manage to attract the unwanted—and erotic—attention of the Prince of Wales? Not that being desired by royalty is necessarily bad… Only, Mariah much prefers the prince's best friend….
Jack St. Lawrence is very tempting, and very loyal. And he knows that the prince gets involved only with married women. So he figures sexy Mariah is safe…until the prince demands Jack find her a husband!
The problem? Jack and Mariah can't fight their sizzling attraction. And once they give in to their desires, the situation is even worse. Because the prince's man has found a husband for Mariah.
I love Betina Krahn. She kind of fell off my radar a year or so ago, and I’m really bummed about it. I love how true she stays to the historical time period she writes about. This wasn’t necessarily a comfortable storyline. Watching the hero follow around after the heroine while she finds a husband who won’t care she’s going to be mistress to the prince is unconventional to say the least. The fact that Krahn makes it work is a testament to her ability as an author.
