Reader’s Edyn

I always felt like I could do something more than just read. Finally, I have found both a creative outlet and a chance to do something meaningful with my reading. This blog was created in appreciation of and tribute to all of the authors who have brought me joy through their books. These reviews are my way of giving back to authors and providing recognition for the hard work that each one completes every day!

Untold wealth, a loving family, a solid career in America: the only thing Princess Tatiana lacks is the one thing she really doesn’t want—a husband. Unfortunately, her parents have just arranged her marriage to a royal from the old country. Are they kidding? It’s the twenty-first century!

Police Detective Peter Roman is a royal living incognito … and escaping a secret that has haunted his family for years. He’s been quietly in love with his best friend Prince Alexander’s sister for as long as he can remember. Little does she know that he is secretly the Grand Duke to whom she is unwillingly betrothed…
When a series of high-end jewelry heists threatens Tatiana’s exclusive charity exhibition in glamorous Monaco, the two must trap the clever jewel thief before he strikes again. In a fight for their lives, Peter’s secret identity is revealed. With danger and passion increasing to the breaking point, she must decide: catch a thief…or trust the heart of her true love.

**Royals and jewels and thieves, oh my!**

It just seemed natural that when you got together a bunch of Russian royals, their multi-million dollar jewelry and a glittering event set in Monaco, there would be bound to be a thief and trouble!

Detective Peter Roman and Princess Tatiana Ivanov know that there is that risk. Peter has uncovered a trail of thefts leading directly to the big charity event being run by Tatiana at the Ivanov casino in Monte Carlo.

Armed with that knowledge, it's only natural that Peter and Tatiana head to the principality where the ultra-rich like to play in order to prevent the theft of the priceless jewels which will be showcased at the event.

There's just one problem: To protect Tatiana and her event, Peter risks revealing painful secrets that he has kept to himself for years, including the fact that he is Grand Prince Pyotr Romanovich and the man that Tatiana is supposed to marry!

Peter has been living incognito for years in Atlantic City having escaped the public spotlight into which he was born and he has no desire to be outed again. It's why he's battled his attraction to the stunning and elegant Princess Tatiana, his best friend's kid sister.

But Peter fears there's more happening than just the possible theft and he isn't about to let something happen to Tatiana when she heads to Monaco to make sure everything is in order for her big charity event.

His attraction grows ever more impossible to deny as the two spend time together amidst the luxury of the Ivanov casino and Monaco. Peter knows that the honorable thing to do is to tell Tatiana who he is and he understands her anger at the revelation.

The last thing Tatiana wants is to be forced into a marriage with a man she does not love and worse, does not trust. Even though Peter has revealed who he is to Tatiana, she cannot believe that he has kept that from her for all the years they have known each other. Worse, she hates that she can't fight her attraction to him even after the revelation.

Danger and the revelation of his identity and painful past challenge the emotions Peter and Tatiana have for each other. But there is a much more dangerous challenge coming their way as what appears to be a theft turns into a deadly event.

I hope you’ll take a moment to check out TO CATCH A PRINCESS. Thanks so much for coming by to visit with me!

Tatiana opened the incoming message and tapped to open the picture that was attached. She made it full screen and shared it with Peter.
It’s a girl,” she said happily and grinned with joy for her brother and sister-in-law.
Beautiful,” he said, surprising her. It was not the word she would have used to describe the messy baby still covered in who knew what goo.
But as she met his gaze, it hit her.
He hadn’t been talking about the baby.
Does that line work on all your women?” she said, losing some of the brightness of the moment. He chuckled and shook his head. “All my women? Do you think I’m a player or what?”
A man who looks like you—”
Now who’s giving me a line?” he jumped in, tossing her own words back at her. But the sexy grin on his face took the sting out of what would otherwise have been a dis.
“—and has that whole bad-boy-don’t-give-a-damn—” she continued without pause until he laid a finger on her lips to silence her.
I do give a damn, Tatochka. A lot. Especially when it comes to people I care about.”
The touch of that one digit was potent as any caress, especially when coupled with the intense way he gazed at her, his golden green eyes darkening with emotion.
Unnerved, she eased away and tried to re-establish the lighter mood they had been experiencing earlier. Raising her smartphone again to pull up the second picture Alexander sent, this one of Kathleen and him holding the baby, she said, “They make a beautiful family don’t they?”
Peter nodded and smiled. “They do. I’m glad fate brought Alexander and Kathleen together.”
Fate? I would have thought a logical type like you wouldn’t put much store in fate.”
Peter shrugged and held out the bag with the last of the nuts. “Logic only explains so much, Tatiana.”
She should know better than to ask, but something about him just made it impossible to hold back. “So what do you think fate has planned for us?”
He grinned and shrugged nonchalantly once more to hide what she suspected was a well of deep emotions. “You know what they say about plans?”
No, what do they say?”
God laughs at men who make plans. So I guess we’ll just have to wing it.”
