“You eloped with your bodyguard, and got married in a Vegas chapel, that’s what you’ve done, Elsa! How in god’s name did the rest of your security team leave you alone long enough, and what were you thinking, and how will this even look?”
She stiffened at the last part, and I know she hated being accountable to anyone, let alone the me. “I love him as much as he does me, he’s been my bodyguard for a year now, and we’ve been… you know… for a while now.”
I closed my eyes for a moment, imagining how this was going to go down with the family, with the media, with the country, when it went public that Elsa had eloped with her bodyguard who it seemed she’d been sleeping with? Or not sleeping as the case may be.
“But where is he now? I don’t see him standing by your side and facing this with you.”
She let out the longest sigh, and then poked me in the chest. “I didn’t want you to kill him.”
“He’s former special forces,” I countered. “He’d probably end up killing me!”
They’re setting fire to the sheets, but a romance between an out and proud hockey star and a reformed playboy prince could end up burning them both.
Marquis Miller might be one of the NHL’s best players, single, wealthy, and open about his sexuality, but he knows his future lies in taking over the reins of the family’s multimillion-dollar company after retirement. Jumping on the family jet, he heads to Europe, tasked with schmoozing a prince into accepting his company’s bid on a significant castle renovation. Assuming he’d encounter a dusty old monarch well into his dotage, Marquis is stunned to find out that Kaleb is a young, sophisticated, beautiful man with an impressive work ethic, to-die-for eyes, and a certain flair that captures Marquis’s attention.
Dragging the royal palace into the twenty-first century is one battle after another for the king’s youngest son. Juggling renovations, his royal duties, and attempting to reverse his former playboy prince reputation is impossible when everyone keeps dumping problems in his lap. His chaotic life takes yet another turn when an American hockey player arrives at the castle to discuss a renovation project. Marquis is the antithesis of Kaleb’s newly minted, responsible outlook on life, a jock, a player, willing to take chances. Although the forbidden sex is hot, Kaleb is not ready to turn on his family responsibilities for a pretty smile and a smart mouth.
Family is everything and romance will always come in second, until they open their hearts to love.More info →
