Synopsis: Stylist Elle Olsen lives in fear of someone discovering her secret identity as Princess Eloise. But the men who killed her entire family in a bloody coup have done just that and now they’re coming for her. All Elle wants is to disappear into anonymity again, but the panty-melting billionaire who kidnaps her isn’t about to let that happen.

On the society pages, smoking hot financier Dominick Rasmussen is one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, but there’s more to him than meets the eye. As a secret resistance fighter, his one goal is to get Princess Eloise on the throne and restore the monarchy. The biggest problem? His stubborn and sexy undercover princess has no interest in ever wearing a tiara again.

Their goals couldn’t be more opposed, but neither Dom nor Elle can deny the attraction bringing them closer together. As the stakes rise and danger increases, they are forced to choose between love and country…

My Review:

Elle has been living incognito for a decade after witnessing her entire family being massacred in coup. She’s really Princess Eloise and should be the queen of the Nordic island kingdom of Elskov which she used to call home but, after escaping to America, she’s made an alternative life for herself as a stylist. However, she’s never felt safe and never let anyone get too close. She’s been alone and lonely but still hadn’t anticipated being kidnapped by a notorious billionaire, Dominick Rasussen, or discovering that he’s a high up member of the revolutionaries planning to reinstate the monarchy, with Elle as their Queen! As distracting as their mutual attraction is, they still never envisaged the drama, including more kidnapping and explosions, that were about to happen, changing both their lives forever . . . 

This is a steamy, hot paced romance with plenty of other action, too. It is a story of loneliness, coping with a decade of abandonment, secrets and danger. Although Princess Eloise is one feisty young royal, Dominick is no Prince Charming! He’s one sexy, determined billionaire trying to resist their mutual attraction whilst fighting to ensure she is safe and able to resume her rightful role in their island community. The dramatic ending maintains the all action nature of the whole novel and hints to possible scenarios for at least one other book in this series – and I’ll certainly be looking out for their release.

Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me a copy of this novel via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

An Excerpt to whet your appetite:

“Dom—”HUP Teaser2

The rest of the sentence was smothered by the white cotton cloth he held in his free hand and forced against her nose and mouth. Shock froze Elle to the spot. She couldn’t blink. She couldn’t breathe. All she could do was feel the banging of her heart as panic sent it into overdrive. The people who killed her family had found her.

“This is for your own good,” he said as he looked down at her. “I couldn’t take the chance you’d fight me, and there isn’t time to explain.”

Too damn bad for him, because her fight-or-flight response zinged into action. Whatever was in the cloth, she didn’t want to breathe it in. Adrenaline clawed at her, demanding life-giving oxygen, but she refused to give in. They might have murdered everyone she loved and sent her into hiding, but she wouldn’t go down without a fight. She grabbed his arms, yanking and stabbing her nails into the sliver of his wrists not covered by his shirt. He didn’t flinch.

Dom kept his cold gaze on her, a icy determination making them even bluer somehow. “Just relax and breathe.”

Fat fucking chance. Holding on to his forearms for leverage, she slammed her knee upward, aiming for his most vulnerable spot. He deflected the move with an ease of a natural athlete or a man trained to do whatever it took to force the world to do his bidding.

She fought against him, kicking and hitting, but he kept the cloth pressed against her nose and mouth. Her lungs burned with the effort not to breathe as she struggled in his iron grasp, but it didn’t do her any good. Blackness ate around the edges of her vision, the lack of oxygen taking its toll. She didn’t have long before she’d pass out, with or without the help of whatever chemical was in the cloth.

Ten years. She’d made it HUP Teaser 4a decade without anyone finding her, without her secret coming out. Foolishly, she’d thought she was finally safe. Now she’d pay the price for a crown she’d never worn and a kingdom she’d never ruled. Dom pulled her close to his hard chest so she wouldn’t fall to the cold marble floor, holding her tight but without cruelty. No doubt that would come later.

“Everything is going to be okay, Princess Eloise,” he whispered against her ear. “I promise.”

But it wouldn’t. She knew better than to ever trust a man who promised happy endings in the middle of a kidnapping.
