BRANDISHING A CROWN
BRANDISHING A CROWN (4.5) by Rita Herron: Herron whips up the suspense in a first-rate action tale loaded with romance and suspects and wrapped in political intrigue. Prince Stefan Lutece comes to Wyoming to broker trade agreements with the United States, but somebody wants him and his entourage dead. Forensics specialist Jane Cameron doesn’t know how to handle the sexy prince who tells her she’s beautiful. As the attacks escalate, this plain Jane is determined to make sure Stefan is safe. Ducking bullets, cave-ins and assassins and never knowing who to trust, the couple stays just one step ahead of disaster — and one step behind their hearts.
