Falling for Prince Federico
The world knows him as Prince Perfect. She’s about to discover the truth.
Prince Federico diTalora is all too aware of his dreaded nickname: Prince Perfect. He’s spent his life guarding his reputation, cognizant of the duty he owes his country and its citizens. But as a widower with two rambunctious boys, the strain of being an ideal son, father, and prince has pushed him to the breaking point.
Pia Renati is in San Rimini to stay with her best friend, who’s pregnant and on bed rest. Faced with hours of downtime, Pia is tempted when Prince Federico, with his Mediterranean good looks and unimpeachable reputation, invites her to spend time with him and his two boys.
As Federico and Pia chase the boys around the palace gardens, they find themselves drawing closer. Pia didn’t travel to San Rimini for romance—it’s the last thing she wants—though there’s no denying her attraction to Federico. But can she trust Prince Perfect with her heart, when she sees all too clearly the pain he hides from the world?
Falling for Prince Federico is the fifth book in the Royal Scandals: San Rimini series. The six-book series includes:

Take a Chance and It Just Might Pay Off
Federico and Pia are both dealing with pasts that make them hesitant to take a chance on each other. Pia, a humanitarian helping her friend until she sets off on the next job, battles her feelings for the prince and is terrified of putting his children in danger. Federico feels he’s robbed his dead wife of the chance for true love and battles his guilt over it. Both have to work together and on their own to figure out how to overcome these feelings and find each other. This was a quick and easy read that follows Federico and Pia working their way toward a future together. If you’re looking for a book that you can enjoy without stressing you out (because we all could use a break with this virus running around), then I definitely recommend this book.
Not Perfect... but perhaps perfect for each other
A prince who thinks he has to be perfect. A woman who has felt her entire life that she never has been good enough. Conflicting obligations, both real and imagined. This attraction cannot go further, not the least because neither feels they deserve the other. I enjoyed watching Pia and Frederico help each other grow personally, and eventually grow to love each other. As a bonus, the little boy princes were a fun and engaging part of this story.
