Is there anything harder than being a member of the Royal Family of a small European nation, when all your mother (the Queen) does is throw potential brides at your head?

Yes, it is harder to be one of the potential brides being thrown at a Royal Prince’s head when all you want to do is finish your master’s thesis in psychology!!

Add to the confusion the fact that Prince Nicholas is a real-live, honest-to-God physician, and Tara York, daughter of a mega-multimillionaire hotelier, is committed to her studies and her goals of making a difference in the world, and you have the wonderful mis-match created by Leanne Banks in her latest novel.

Of course, it doesn’t take Nick long to realize that the ugly clothes, thick glasses and occasional stumble are, in fact, Tara’s way of hiding from potential spouses; well, all except the stumble – Nick’s medical skills come in handy there! And it doesn’t take Tara too long to realize that this delicious hunk of prince might just be the one to steal her heart! It is the process of making these discoveries that is such a pleasure here – Ms. Banks has created two charming and standout characters and it’s a joy to watch as they slide helplessly into love with each other. Nick is the perfect hero, caring, sexy, handsome and intelligent, and Tara matches him every step of the way with her independence, curiosity and rapidly developing sensuality!

These two certainly embody the “Desire” in this Silhouette novel, and it is a charming read which is over too quickly!! Highly recommended for the vacation, the beach, or anywhere you’d like to spend a couple of hours wrapped up in a splendid love story!
