THE PRINCESS AND THE OUTLAW
THE PRINCESS AND THE OUTLAW (3) by Leanne Banks: Introverted and studious, Princess Phillipa “Pippa” Devereaux’s thoughts are constantly filled with the darkly handsome Nic Lafitte. Nic is pretty open about his feelings for Pippa and dares her to declare hers, as well. But with both their families at odds, Pippa hesitates to take on the dare. Then Nic’s mother Amelie appears, and Pippa finds herself defying royal conventional wisdom to fulfill a mother’s dying wish — which includes spending time with Nic. Though this story pulls at the heartstrings, the pacing is a bit slow in some parts.
