Princess Emmaline knows it is her duty to wed King Otto, a man whom she’s never met, but she cannot help yearning for a taste of life before she agrees to the arranged marriage. Running away from the exclusive girls’ school, Emma finds herself in the seedier side of London and quickly gets herself into trouble. Her savior is none other than Dominic Gregory, the Earl of Lyndhurst and a decorated war hero.
Nick hears Emma’s sad, contrived tale and takes pity on her. He brings her home to his London townhouse and squires her around to the various sights she’s only dreamed about. Emma goes to parties and attends the theater, drinking in the sights and sounds as though she’s starving.
Nick does not know what to make of his new house guest. Emma is much too beautiful and graceful for her own good. Although she claims to be a governess, she carries herself with a regal air. With every passing day, Nick falls more deeply under Emma’s sweet spell.
Time grows short. All too soon, her brother’s guards come looking for Emma and the princess quickly realizes her holiday is over. To save her country, Emma must return to her brother’s house and prepare to wed a man she does not love.
I enjoyed this book for the view it provided of what life as a princess might be like. It isn’t all glamour and privilege. Sometimes, royalty is forced to make choices for the good of all – despite their true desires.
