I’m a modern twenty-three-year-old princess bound by rules
more suited to medieval times. My father’s declining health means I will soon
be queen, but, as a woman, I will not be allowed to rule alone. I can only
claim my birthright by marrying the man chosen for me—a business tycoon useful
to our kingdom.
My parents are unbending. If I do not comply, my younger
cousin will take my place simply because he’s a man.
I’m the one who must bend, or walk away and lose
everything—my family, my birthright, my island home.
I never met a man tempting enough to risk a kingdom…and then
I meet him.
I’m the good-looking one. If you need to pick me out of the
middle of the Rourke clan, that’s how you do it. Does it bother me that nothing
is expected of the fourth-born son other than to flash my devastatingly
handsome smile for the press? Maybe.
Would I like to be needed even just by one person who sees
me as the key to something important? Yes.
And then I meet her.
Only lightning struck for the wrong woman. She’s on Villroy
for a short time before she must return home and marry the man her parents have
chosen. If she doesn’t, she loses her birthright.
If I truly care for Polly, I’ll walk away. But do I have the
strength to resist the most perfect woman I’ve ever met?
