Misplaced Princess

Foreign Affairs, Book One

I loved the introductory book, Misplaced Princess, by Mari Carr and Lexxie Couper for their new series Foreign Affairs. It's a unique blend of US and Australian cultures and shows both in a positive light. From rich girl trying to break away from her family to cowboy working on a remote ranch, I mean station; this book brings to life a story that gives flight to your imagination.

Humor is laced throughout this story and don't be surprised if you have to laugh. While there is plenty of sexual tension, it has to go somewhere and that somewhere sometimes isn't what is expected. Between miscommunications and a city girl in the country, things can get interesting and funny.

Two terrific authors wrote this story yet it flows without any glitches bringing the best of both writers into a terrific romance. Not only does this story totally keep your interest but you can see the next story developing. For such a short book, that a lot of stuff that is packed in it but it doesn't feel crowded or forced but more like an intertwined story of real people.

This would make the perfect beach book or rainy afternoon book. It's short so it doesn't take long to read but complex enough to keep your interesting. The sexual tension is enough to arouse but I'm sure you can figure out how to take care of that.

The characters are done extremely well and allow you to relate to them. Annie may come from a rich family but she doesn't like the exposure that comes with fame and only wants to be loved for herself, not her family. But, as hard as she tries to separate herself from her family, their influence always intruded.

Hunter is the identical twin brother of Dylan, the man Annie has been corresponding on the Internet with. Hunter doesn't expect to see Annie in Australia after Dylan flew to the US to see her. And, Hunter doesn't expect to be attracted to Annie. It winds up that both really need to talk to Dylan as things are heating up between Annie and Hunter. Don't worry about Dylan though because he's hanging out with Annie's best friend back in New York!

Now, to wait for Dylan's story.......

Book Blurb for Misplaced Princess

Annie Prince has impetuously flown halfway 'round the world to visit a sexy cowboy she met online--only to find herself stranded in Sydney. Seems she and Dylan crossed wires, and he's on his way to New York. His twin, Hunter, saves the day and whisks her back to the family cattle station. Hunter's as easy on the eyes as Dylan, and even easier to talk to. Annie might have flown to Oz to meet one brother, but soon sparks are flying with the other.

Hunter considered Dylan a dumb arse for jetting off to America for some stranger--until he met Annie. Turns out the New Yorker is a smart, funny, hard-working jillaroo...and hotter than the Aussie desert. Hunter's not normally one to poach his brother's women, but he can't keep his hands, lips, tongue and other body parts off this sexy city girl.

When raging lust leads to emotional attachment, where does that leave Annie and Hunter when her vacation comes to an end--or when Dylan finds out? Book Length: Short Novel
