Hand-Me-Down Princess

by Carol Moncado

Hand Me Down Princess

The Monarchies of Belles Montagnes
Book 4: Mevendia

Prince Malachi Van Renssalaer of Mevendia is getting married. The problem? He’s never even met his bride. His father arranged everything, right down to the marriage contract. Malachi swears to himself that he will be nothing like his father in the ways that count – including his fidelity to his wife.

Jessabelle Keller would happily spend her entire life in obscurity, but her father once saved the life of a future king. Before he dies, her father is committed to seeing that king make good on his promise to have one of his sons marry her so she would be taken care of for life.

No sooner than Prince Malachi and Jessabelle return from their honeymoon, they find themselves dealing with both private trauma and the very public drama of groundless accusations from the press. Just as they begin to weave their fragile trust back together, a ghost from the king’s past arrives and threatens everything they’ve ever held dear.

Secrets have a funny way of coming out and this one could rip the faith of the country in their leaders to shreds. Malachi is determined to protect Jessabelle no matter what it takes, but will it ever be enough for her to not feel like a Hand-Me-Down Princess?

(Previously labelled book 1 in The Brides of Belles Montagnes series)

Heated Summer

by Susette Williams

Heated Summer

Margaret Stephens has her sights set on marrying a man with a promising future. Nicholas Alexander is definitely not that man. His boyish charm isn’t going to sidetrack her; not that he appears to want to. Nick’s judgmental manner irks her because he doesn’t know her…not well enough to condemn her.

Nicholas has seen enough gold diggers like Maggie. The purrfect little kitty who warms up to rich guys. Then when the unsuspecting bums marry them…they find kitty has claws. He’s already been scratched and isn’t about to make the same mistake twice.

Margaret doesn’t plan on ever going hungry again. A visit to the orphanage brings up a past she keeps trying to forget. To Nicholas, it’s a reminder of all the things he has to be thankful for and he hopes that Margaret will come to appreciate all that she has.

Can two people from different sides of the track meet somewhere in the middle? It’s a rough ride till they find out.
