New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julia London brings readers another charming, sexy contemporary western.
A devil in her path...
No one cheats on a Prince and gets away with it. And Hallie—Texas socialite, would-be ballerina, and the only daughter of the renowned Prince family—is ready to give her two-timing fiancé a piece of her mind. But fate plants hot, sexy ranch hand and ex-Army Ranger Rafael Fontana quite literally in her way. Her childhood friend is all grown up. He’s sexy, he’s handsome, and suddenly, after all these years, Hallie is taking notice.
A princess in his heart...
Rafe has been in love with Hallie since they were kids, but he was always the help—and she was glamorous and popular, seemingly off-limits to a lowly cowboy. But now he’s back at Three Rivers Ranch to help his family and Hallie is there too—and she needs his support. Soon long-buried feelings boil to the surface, and the desire between them is hot and palpable and undeniable. Rafe realizes he wants Hallie—and her adorable puppy—for keeps… he just has to convince her to give true love another shot.
Friends get more than just benefits in London's second Princes of Texas contemporary (after The Charmer in Chaps), which tackles dynamics of class, wealth, and power while developing a gripping friends-to-lovers romance. The Prince family, owners of the Three Rivers Ranch in Texas, have fallen on hardish times after the death of patriarch Charlie, who gambled away much of their money, and they can barely afford to employ majordomo Martin Fontana. Hallie Prince, Charlie's daughter, still lives like she's rich, but that hasn't stopped her from befriending Rafe Fontana, Martin's oldest son. Rafe has been "quietly, privately, and desperately" in love with Hallie all his life, but he fears that acting inappropriately could cost his father his job. When Hallie catches her fianc cheating, she turns to Rafe for support, and, as usual, he's there for her. But when chemistry develops between them and she challenges him to admit how he feels, he holds back, knowing they can't escape the difficulties that their professional relationship presents to their personal entanglement. London beautifully captures the essence of the couple's friendship and the depth of their emotions, making the lovemaking that much more intense. Hallie's grandma, Dolly, is just as charming and funny as ever, and the Prince family's financial problems bring more comic relief than pathos. Readers will have a grand ol' time revisiting Three Rivers.

The devil in the saddle
We are back in Texas with the Princes. They are a lovable family. This time we watch as Rafe and Hallie turn their childhood friendship into something more. But first we have to go through some things that happened in their lives as they figure things out. The families are there as usually to help. I absolutely love Dolly. Love this series!
