Publisher Description

When Lucinda North agrees to impersonate a missing princess, she finds herself living at Buckingham Palace, evading a killer — and falling in love with Anthony, Earl of Melfield! An exciting Regency romance by USA Today bestselling author Meredith Bond!

"This isn't her Royal Highness," the headmistress told the man and the woman who were staring at Lucinda with their mouths hanging open.

"But it could be."

These words turn the life of Lucinda North upside down. Within hours, she agrees—against her better judgement—to impersonate the missing Princess Louisa of Aachen-Düren. Within a week, she meets the queen and the handsome, charming Lord Melfield. Within the month, she is living at Buckingham Palace, lying about her true identity not only to Queen Charlotte but to all of Regency society, while someone is trying to kill her. Within her lifetime, she will never regret a moment of it.

Anthony, Earl of Melfield would rather not waste his time helping a spoiled princess learn how to conduct herself. He would certainly rather not return to society after a heartbreak. And he most definitely would rather not have feelings for the princess, no matter how sweet, funny, and beautiful she is. Most of all, he would much rather not use all of his skills to save her life and figure out who wants her dead.

In this first book of this sweet, and adventurous Royals & Rebels series by Meredith Bond you'll find hidden identities, a princess on the run, and three lives at stake… despite this, these royals and rebels must learn to trust and open themselves to a lifetime of love.

All three books in the Royals & Rebels series are interconnected and should be read in the correct order for full enjoyment.

"This was a fantastic, fun read! Meredith Bond delivers a sweet and thrilling romance, which has you cheering for the fake princess and the dashing earl. There are laugh-out-loud moments, mixed with swoon-worthy elements, and the entire time, you can't stop wondering what might happen next. I love the mysterious side of the novel that kept me on my toes the whole time! Looking forward to the next book!"

In Lieu of a Princess

I loved the characters and the story but the huge cliffhanger at the end ruined it for me. I really become invested in books and cliffhangers are really disappointing and unsatisfactory.
