On October 29th, the 2nd book in my royal romance series released. In case you've missed 'The Prince's Stubborn Bride', you can find out more here. Book 1 can be found here.
I'm currently writing the last chapters of the 3rd book, and it's again huge fun. Dashing Prince Erik from the North already made an appearance in Book 2, and similarly you'll meet Prince Sebastian and Prince Christian from the previous novels again in this one.

Read on for an exclusive first excerpt!
Frozen in place with apprehension, feeling a flush creep up her body, Jessica waited for Erik to approach. He came close and sketched a bow, which drew a few gasps around them. Refusing to play the demure damsel, Jessica smiled at him.
Just imagine he’s the only one here, she told herself silently, again and again.
Erik reached out to take her hand and pressed a chaste kiss to it.
He drew closer than decorum allowed it, saying softly just for her ears, “You look absolutely stunning, Miss Kaiser. Easily the most beautiful woman in the ballroom. I’d bet a crown jewel that a lot of men envy me right now.”
Something inside her loosened at his words, at the teasing tone and the fire in his gaze. “And I’d bet your whole royal fortune that even more women envy me right now.”
His eyes sparkled, reminding her of the sapphires he and his family were wearing. He finally let go of her hand, his fingers brushing hers lightly and longingly.
“Are you alright, Jessica?” he asked in an even lower tone.
They were standing so close that she could smell him, cologne and fresh linen, and a hint of the woodsy outdoors and cold, glacial streams. Oh, how she wanted to glide her fingers over his jacket lapels and find out how the textured material felt. But she was certain even standing so close to him and having him address her was already breaking a dozen protocols.
“Yes, I think I am…now that you’re by my side.”
