What’s a crown prince to do with time on his hands? Or better yet, who? It’s Prince Garrett’s turn to find love in this mouthwatering standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Royal Pain.
Once upon a time I was being groomed to sit on the throne of Wildemar. Now I’m lucky they let me into the palace through the front door. After I was kidnapped and tortured by extremists, my reward upon my release is that nobody trusts me enough to let me be king. And since my twin brother, Kian, has assumed all my responsibilities, I figure why not take over as the black sheep?
But after breaking things off with my betrothed—we never had much chemistry, anyway—and giving the jetsetting playboy lifestyle a try, I’m starting to wonder if I’m cut out for this s***. Then I meet Lola Barnes, a drop-dead gorgeous entrepreneur from the States who’s as refreshing as she is feisty.
It’s supposed to be a one-night-stand—until the press catches wind of my “new American sweetheart.” Trouble is, Lola’s no sweetheart. But the more I see our names together in the headlines, the more I find myself craving another taste. . . .

Practice, practice, practice...
That means read and reread. There are quite a few editing mistakes I this book, not only of grammar, but of research, logic, story arc, continuity and follow-through. That said, it’s a fairly good storyline, just needs tidying up.
“Two people as messed up as we are really have no business being together."
I confess, I didn't think Garrett could win me over as much as his twin brother Kian did, but I was wrong. When Garrett was rescued after being kidnapped and tortured, the broken prince stole my heart. I learned that he was more than the goody-goody chosen one, and an heir to the throne. Yeah, maybe he was more serious and not as funny and carefree as his twin, but he had so much more responsibility to weigh him down. Well, at least he did, before his father decided that the son that was returned to him after the abduction wasn't fit to be king. Now the heir has become the spare.
Kian is still hilarious, especially now that he's taken over Garrett's role as the next prince in line for the throne. It's the last thing he wants. He's never wanted that responsibility and he's fully aware that his brother does. If it wasn't for Garrett's coaching, he wouldn't have even made it through a single one of the meetings he's required to attend. Let's hope that there's still a country left to lead by the time he gets through messing up.
Garrett tries to keep his resentment under control and his anger simmering below the surface. But sometimes it's hard to accept his new lot in life. He's made the ultimate sacrifice and rather than it being appreciated he's been put out to pasture. Why not see if the grass really is greener on the other side? Kian had a blast being the black sheep of the family, so why not give it a try? Maybe women and partying and no responsibility is the way to go. That's how he met her...Lola.
Lola is an amazing character who won me over in a single sentence. I became the president of her fan club immediately and never wavered in my support. She is a little red-headed fireball who is not intimidated by royalty or their security and is not afraid to let them know it in no uncertain terms. How could Garrett fail to notice and appreciate her? Especially when she was wearing a tiny bikini when she decided to take on his security detail. He thought he would be satisfied with just a taste, but once he got one, he knew it wasn't enough.
Garrett might know how to run a country, but he couldn't run her. Even when he gave her the 'royal treatment' he was the one bending to her will. He couldn't get enough of her feistiness and her beauty bowled him over. When their one date got caught on camera the media exposure made it impossible to keep it a secret. Was their invasion of her privacy too much to handle, or would she be willing to keep playing with the prince?
I've really enjoyed the His Royal Hotness series and wish there were more princes in the palace to look forward to. But no worries, I'm ready for whatever the author has for us next, she never disappoints. The line forms here...
