She can’t abandon her patients for his crown!
To please his dying grandfather and protect his country’s autonomy, Prince Paul of Rensy Island must marry an American doctor, descendant of a Rensian princess. Paul, a confirmed bachelor, agrees to meet Amy incognito during her vacation in Paris. Although her career and ex-boyfriend are major interferences, attraction sizzles between Amy and her ‘driver’, but the rumor of her engagement to ‘Prince’ Paul outrages her. Can he convince her that he loves her, in spite of his lies by omission?
Mona Risk, author
I wrote this story while cruising the British Isles. The setting of the book was inspired by the quaint Guernsey Island, an island in the Channels. The guide explained that the residents of Guernsey speak English and French, don’t pay taxes and enjoy free medical care for children under seven and seniors over seventy. The island has alternatively belonged to England and France, and is now part of the British Commonwealth. The ruler is a governor and the constitution states that in case of problems the island would revert to England.
I loved the setting. My muse immediately replace the governor with a prince, just like Monaco or Luxemburg , both in Europe, and my imagination changed their constitution–the heir to the throne must be married. The ruling prince is old and dying, and his grandson is a handsome businessman and playboy who enjoys his freedom and his work. But grandpa worries about the future of his country and summons his grandson!
All of this played in my head while I was in the bus touring the island and visiting the landmarks.
Imagine if Kate Middleton (Dr. Amy in my story) were an American doctor, dedicated to her career and her patients.
What if Prince William (Prince Paul in my story) wanted to make sure his future wife will love him for himself and not for his crown?
What if he decided to act as her driver and guide, in Paris, to get to know her better?
What if their attraction turns into passionate love?
What about her medical career and her patients?
What if the paparazzi haunt them at every turn? What if the tabloid magazines spoil everything? What if…what if…what if…
