Royal Pain: His Royal Hotness, Book 1

Tracy Wolff. Loveswept, $3.99 e-book (230p) ISBN 978-0-425-28589-3
Wolff’s laugh-out-loud rags-to-riches contemporary is brimming with charm. Prince Kian of the nonexistent nation of Wildemar, the twin brother of the crown prince Garrett, is forced to tame his philandering ways when Garrett is kidnapped and Kian takes his place as heir to the throne. When audacious American Savannah “Savvy” Breslin jumps in to save Kian from an awkward situation during one of his new princely duties, she’s surprised to fall for the handsome, free-spirited aristocrat, especially considering her poor past experiences with his family. Familiar with the demands of the aristocracy, she knows that any kind of involvement would be a bad idea, but she finds it impossible to resist Kian’s laid-back attitude, exceptional good looks, and loveable entourage of three good-hearted guards. Kian’s strength of character is exhibited through his ability to balance his desire for Savvy against his concern for his brother and the requirements of his position, especially during the kidnapping’s fallout. He gives Savvy plenty of attention, but her fear of loss leads her to doubt his ability to commit to her, and that doubt threatens their relationship. With witty repartee, well-developed characters, and a splash of suspense, Wolff has turned what could be a ridiculous premise into a clever and refreshing love story. Agent: Emily Sylvan Kim, Prospect. (Sept.)
