Deveraux’s pleasant second Nantucket Brides novel picks up where True Love left off: with Toby Wyndam preparing her friend Lexie’s perfect wedding. Toby doesn’t have time to play games with Graydon Montgomery, the groom’s cousin, who enjoys swapping places with his fun-loving identical twin brother, Rory. When Toby has no trouble telling the two apart, Graydon, the heir to the throne of fictional Lanconia, speculates that he and Toby are soul mates who will always recognize each other. Deciding a vacation from princely duties is due, Graydon stays in Nantucket to get to know Toby—platonically, since they both know he’s slated for a political marriage at home. Toby vows to keep her heart free, but circumstances and feelings change when they realize their souls may be linked now and in generations past. This story of commoner and king would be as entertaining without the paranormal elements, but the soul mate twist adds a bit of depth. (July)
