A ROYAL PAIN
For the girl who secretly wishes a real-life Prince Charming (or his distant cousin) would sweep her off her feet and give her the royal life she seeks, this is the book to buy this winter — a light and breezy read, perfect for a cold night next to the fireplace. Filled with clever characters, witty banter and steamy sex, readers won’t be able to put it down.
Bronte Talbott, a smart, career-driven woman, has always been fascinated by British royalty. But never in her wildest dreams did she think she’d end up dating a royal! Max Heyworth seems like just a sexy British doctoral student. Turns out he’s actually the 19th Duke of Northrop — and he’s interested in much more than a fling. He plans to make Bronte his duchess. But can Bronte handle his family’s disapproval, being stalked by paparazzi and changing her style so she can have her true happily ever after? Or will she run back across the pond before it’s too late? (SOURCEBOOKS, Nov., 338 pp., $14.99)
