Will this runaway royal ever find her place…and true love?

All Princess Catherine Zara of Lysianna wants to do is attend college like everyone else her age. So she’s a royal and requires a security guard to move about in public, but if she goes to university, she doesn’t have to marry the man chosen for her. He’s not her true love, so why torture herself? All she has to do to get her life started is to run away to the US…

And then she meets Luke.

Luke Cobb wants to survive college with a degree in studio art and guarantees that he can show his paintings in the local galleries. All he needs is the right break to get his work mainstream and the right woman to stoke his dormant muse. When he meets Zara, he’s smitten and his creativity sparks.

Except, she’s a princess and he’s a commoner, which could be a big problem…

Oh, if only my problems were as easily solved as Zara’s! She really is the poor little rich girl who hasn’t been treated very nicely by her suitors and so has trust issues. Of course, she falls for Luke. He’s a ‘peasant’, after all, with a heart of gold and an instant karmic connection.

Part of me wants to dislike this book – simply because it has one pace and that is FAST. Not only that, but issues and problems fade away as though it’s just a story… hold on! And for that reason, part of me thoroughly enjoyed this book. It IS fiction, it is far-fetched, problems ARE solved easily, love is instant, and sex IS on tap whenever you want.

This is a fun, frolicking story that allows you to suspend belief in, well, pretty much anything as you read about love, heartache, betrayal, loyalty. It’s all here and more enjoyable than it has a right to be!

I can’t wait to find out more about Charlie, although he also seems to fall in and out of love just like getting on and off a bus. Still, a fantasy of romance is always good for me, and so I can happily recommend it.
