When a modern princess falls in love with her bodyguard, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.
ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess. Flicka von Hannover lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after.
But then she found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess. And then a coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary.
Finally, the beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away.
The prince didn’t want to let her go. He couldn’t take his throne without her and sent henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people to look for her, too.
The prince threatened her. He said that if the princess contacted her brother or any of her friends for help, he would kill her brother and her brother’s new, pregnant wife.
So the princess ran to the only person she could trust, a man who was frankly not a handsome prince.
Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of.
No one knew that he had been her first lover and had broken her heart.
And he’s the only person who can save her.
Once upon a time
Flicka is a contradiction. A hard working gracious Princess , perhaps appearing very amenable . But she guards her heart for her love and is no walk over .
I have no idea how this story end as it has way too much details. I couldn’t even get into the story.
I pre-ordered this book a while ago and have never read this author before. The blurb was interesting to me so I thought I would give it a go. I didn't realise this would be a two parter and that the blurb really had nothing to do with this book but more for the second book still to come. This book was boring to me. I kept waiting for what was mentioned in the blurb to come about but was left reading page after page of boring back story. I almost gave up on this book a 100 pages in and I wish I did. I can't bring myself to purchase the next book. As much as I would like to finish the story (to soothe a need for closure) and actually read what I thought I was getting in this book, I just can't waste anymore of my time on this. Time to move on.
