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
This book was hard to put down! Great love story with suspense along the way. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Detailed fluff (cotton candy writing)
The general idea and plot of the book is good, but most of it felt like fluff. Every tiny detail in the book was described to death; nothing was left to the imagination. I skipped literal pages of descriptions and when they finally got to the part I wanted to read about the book was over. They did better writing the summary than the actual book. I felt like the summary was taken and added to way too much in order to make this book into a series. I won’t be purchasing the second book in fear that I still won’t get to read the plot I was originally intrigued with.
