The discovery that she's pregnant after one night of love in Lantanya with Max Hughes is a shock to systems analyst Ivy Crosby—but it pales in comparison to the news that her lover is actually that country's crown prince! When Max learns about the baby, he wants to marry immediately, but Ivy isn't sure it's wise. A burglary occurs at her apartment, and Max wonders if it's an attempt on his life or if the perpetrators were after Ivy. She refuses protection at first, but Max persuades Ivy to see reason, hoping to convince her, meanwhile, that their relationship can succeed. Royal Affair (4) is a fairy tale for the new century, combining the best elements of old-fashioned romance with modern sensual frankness. A must-read for Laurie Paige fans.
