A Princess? No Way
Katie Davis is a perfectly ordinary young woman living a perfectly ordinary life in small-town Wisconsin … isn’t she?
The most interesting thing about her is that she works for the men’s basketball office at Ashton University. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around assistant basketball coach Brad Spencer, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn’t feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-missing granddaughter of the King of Bariavak have to be wrong … don’t they?
Brad has a real soft spot for Katie. She stirs his protectiveness, his penchant for the underdog, and, possibly, certain other reactions he’s not about to indulge. So he’s going to do his damnedest to make sure Katie gets all that she deserves, including the crown that might be her right … even though it means Her Royal Highness will never again look at a basketball coach from Wisconsin like he’s the king of her heart.

The Surprise Princess by Patricia McLinn
Love this series! ! ! It takes you from home to all over the world!
Is Katie the missing princess and also the grand-daughter to the King of Baravak or is she just the ordinary girl who works for the university as an executive assistant to the coach and lusting after Brad the assistant coach???
Its great the way these books intertwine with characters from other books in this series but still give you a story that can be a stand alone.
