HOW TO PURSUE A PRINCESS
The latest addition to the delightful Duchess Diaries series incorporates sparkling, witty repartee and heart-tugging emotions. With a wonderfully romantic story, this book is pure, unadulterated Hawkins!
Lily Balfour accepts the Duchess of Roxburghe’s invitation to a country house party because she needs to find a wealthy husband before her sister marries their despicable neighbor. Then, Lily meets a charming, handsome and wealthy earl. He is perfect — until a fall lands her in Prince Pietr Wulfinski’s strong arms. The Russian nobleman is playing the role of a penniless prince to find a woman who loves him for himself. For Pietr, it’s love at first sight. Lily is torn between a safe marriage to the earl and her growing desire for Pietr. As his Romany grandmother and the duchess meddle, it will be quite a feat for Lily and Pietr to find the path to true love. (POCKET, May, 380 pp., $7.99)
