Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton was the “spare heir” until his father had a disabling stroke and his older brother was tragically killed in a crash. Now he’s going to be King, so has to give up his previously decadent life style and put his country and people first.
Returning to the palace, he’s intrigued and attracted by the feisty runner with whom he usually races as part of his early morning run. He finds out that she’s the assistant gardener at the palace, Isabel Reynolds, but she has secrets, anxieties and worries. She knows she’s not a ‘suitable match’ for the soon to be king and that she has to keep running away to escape her past. Temptation and love however both have other ideas for them both in this new novel in the Men of the Zodiac series, this time by Robin Covington.
With the burden of royal responsibilities, plotting politicians, obstructive advisors and being attracted to a woman with secrets, Crown Prince Nicholas really has an onerous burden. Unless he can ascertain Isabel’s secrets and help her, their love won’t stand a chance. She’s equally determined to protect him by keeping her troubles to herself. Their interactions with each other and with other characters express their turmoil in an easy to relate to manner, making this one of those stories which totally engage the reader, taking them along with the characters on a fast paced, rip-roaring ride.
This is a great read by a superb author and is a fabulous addition to the series. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this book to anyone who enjoys their romantic novels with plenty of intrigue, political ploys and handsome royalty.
Thanks to the author, publisher and NetGalley too,
for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
