Secrets and romance are wonderful elements for a story and this one takes them to new heights. Not everyone wants either and yet they define this story. Prince Nicholas just wants to be Nick, the daredevil. Isabel wants only to hide in plain sight. Their attraction to each other shouldn’t happen or be acted upon but it happened and they do act on it. In this, the romance is every girl’s dream and Nick is perfect in every way. I absolutely loved this story. It’s so much more than just a simple Cinderella story or a poor girl falling in love with a storybook prince. Isabel has a secret that will destroy everything and the ending of this story is more complex than a happily ever after. Expect drama along with love and family who doesn’t always understand. I really loved this story.
Nick is off doing what he does best, enjoying himself, when he learns that his older brother has died. This definitely will change his life as Nick never expected to be king and never wanted the position. Now, he has no choice. Knowing his playboy reputation, it has been strongly suggested that he find a bride and settle down. Isabel is on the run. She knows to keep things as close to the truth as she can so she’s working in the palace gardens where she can put her degree to use. She doesn’t want to be noticed. So, when Nicklaus starts making suggestions and wants to spend time with her, Isabel starts thinking of running. Will she be able to go? After all, she doesn’t want to be found and staying would lead to publicity.

Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton was never supposed to be ruler of Callanos. He was the "spare to the heir," pursuing a decadent life of the rich and royal - extreme sports, physical pleasures, and glorious irresponsibility. Until his brother died. Now Nick is to be coronated king, and no one believes he's ready.
The best way to secure his crown is to do the unthinkable...find a queen.
While Isabel Reynolds works in the palace gardens, she has no desire to draw the attention of the way-too-flirty, would-be king. For she's not the woman everyone thinks she is. Even if she wanted - or was tempted by - the promise of love, it would only end in disaster. Because while Isabel may be able to catch a king, her secrets would only destroy him...
