A Stars from Peril Novel
Painting themselves a life together will be a royal ordeal.
Small-town boy Cal Walters doesn’t know whether he owes his phenomenal success as an artist to talent or to his connections to famous people. Doubt leaves him secluded—until a lost bet lands him on yet another blind date. But this one is different.
To Teofilo Vabriga-Kastav, playboy prince of the tiny nation of Porvunia and passionate art lover, Cal’s paintings are as intriguing as Cal himself. When Teo invites Cal to his country for an art competition, a whirlwind romance sweeps them up. But it can’t last—loyalties and obligations bind them to lives that are worlds apart.
Cal and Teo might’ve found their perfect complements in each other, but to hold on to their happiness, they’ll have to get creative.
Fielding (Redesigning Landry Bishop) chronicles the magical present-day romance between handsome Prince Teofilo Vabriga-Kastav of the fictional Porvunia and dashing artist Cal Walters of Peril, Nebr. The men meet on a blind date that ends with a kiss. Prince Teo further woos Cal by inviting him to participate in a juried art competition in Porvunia. Cal, who doubts his own talent, reluctantly agrees, as he's falling in love with Teo, who dances with him at midnight and takes him for romantic walks. Their fairy tale affair hits a speed bump, however, when Cal is called back to Nebraska. When Teo comes for a surprise visit, Cal is pleased and paints a nude portrait of his lover. But though Teo hopes Cal will move to Porvunia, Cal stubbornly refuses to leave Peril. The city mouse/country mouse story is sweet, but the obstacle to happiness is flimsy. Otherwise, this is an enchanting royal affair.
