The upcoming stay of Dante Andretti, the Prince of Calida, is supposed to be a publicity bonanza for the failing Telford Towers Hotel, so substitute concierge Natasha Telford is dismayed when he arrives alone, requesting anonymity. Natasha reluctantly agrees but makes a mutually beneficial deal with Dante: She'll help with his personal business if he'll allow her to capitalize on the rest of his visit. But falling in love isn't part of the bargain -- Natasha's recovering from a costly relationship, and Dante's a future king. The plot of Nicola Marsh's Princess Australia (4) has certain familiar aspects, but the delicious hero and sparkling dialogue more than compensate.
