The Princess and the Peer

Princess Emmaline has been sequestered in a school in Scotland, but longs for more. But when she receives a letter from her brother telling her she is to marry in a strategic political move, she's determined to have an adventure before she's forced to do her duty.

Dominic Gregory, the new Earl of Lyndhurst, was forced to sell his commission in the Royal Navy when his older brother died. While he's committed to doing his duty, he misses everything about being on the sea. When he rescues a young girl after a robbery he finds himself with that old feeling. While he knows it makes no sense, he offers to put her up and show her around.

Emma may not have thought her adventure through, but she finds Nick to be the most interesting person she's ever met and can’t resist his draw. She relishes the time the two of them spend together and even when she knows she should leave she stays with him.

Nick and Emma were kindred spirits, both long for adventure but feel confined by duty to their families. While Emma's duty threatens to destroy both of them emotionally, it's Nick's determination that proves to Emma and her family that his lack of royal blood doesn't mean he's any less worthy of Emma.

This is an enjoyable read with characters who pull at the heartstrings and make you smile when they finally get their happily ever after.
