Publisher's Summary

A widow with a tragic past, who never thought she'd love again.

Widowed one year after a disastrous marriage, English Lady Grace still carries the visible and hidden scars of her past, yet she’s finally ready for a visit from one of her oldest friends, Valleria’s Princess Catharine. What she didn’t expect was a visit from her brother, Prince Marcello. When she begins to feel the first stirrings of love within her, can she overcome the horrors of her past to make a future with him?

A prince protecting his country, torn from the woman he loves for a dangerous mission.

Prince Marcello, head of Valleria's national security and defense, is still dealing with the fallout from security breaches under his watch. After long days and nights of political maneuvering in London to reclaim Valleria’s and his reputation, he takes a needed break by joining his sister on a visit to her friend, Lady Grace. What he thought would be a relaxing week becomes anything but when he begins to fall in love with her.

In the midst of blooming love, Marcello is asked to lead a secret, dangerous mission to thwart an international threat. Marcello knows he must go, both for his country’s honour and for his own. Will he survive? And, if he does, will Grace be waiting for him upon his return?

This novel features a widow and the badass prince who loves her, a royal family that loves one another (even while they annoy each other), and a look behind fictional palace walls.

This is a stand-alone book in the series with no cliff-hanger, and features sexy scenes and swearing. Emotional trigger warning: discussion of physical abuse and potential assault.

What a wonderful couple. They compliment each other well. Grace needs someone she can feel safe and valued with. Maricello needs someone to love him and need him alone.

I appreciated Ms. Knightlys depiction of Grace. Life after abuse is not easy. In some ways it maybe be harder because it is internalized and while the abuse itself isn't happening, the nightmares and self-doubt continues.

Because of this difficult subject matter, I highly this story to only recommend 18+.

After reading this story multiple times, it was wonderful to hear Sarah Kempton narrating.
