As always, the delightful Lady Georgiana Rannoch is on the loose and getting into much more trouble than a person of her station should. Fortunately, she at least can claim an assignment from the Queen, even if those requests often don’t take her penniless status into consideration. Georgie is a modern girl with a penchant for disaster, a royally distasteful family and a sexy, if unreliable, suitor. We can only hope for more adventures for the 34th-in-line successor to the throne.

Lady Georgiana accepts an invitation from the Queen to represent the royal family at a wedding in Transylvania. When she stumbles across a corpse, she has to ascertain if the dead man was the intended victim or if somebody else was supposed to die.

To complicate things further, there’s the matter of a shadowy figure who keeps appearing in guests’ rooms. In the meantime, she’s trying to turn a Cockney cleaning woman into a proper lady’s maid and evading conscription into an engagement to a bisexual prince. (PRIME CRIME, Sep., 320 pp., $24.95)
