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.
Despite his family’s wealth, Peter had never flown in a private jet. It was a completely different experience, and one he wasn’t quite sure he liked. But then again, he wasn’t a fan of flying under any circumstances.
Logic told him this was a far safer mode of transportation than a car or train, and that crashing was less likely than getting hit by lightning, but he couldn’t keep from imagining that every little bump or whine of the engines was the beginning of a death plummet.
As the plane banked to one side and the cabin rattled with a bit of turbulence, he clenched his hands on the arms of his seat and gritted his teeth.
He must have made some kind of noise because Tatiana looked up from the papers she had been reading for the last hour or so. “Looking green, much?”
“I’m fine,” he managed to bite out past the tension in his jaw.
She grinned with amusement, then contained it. Unbuckling, she walked to the seat that faced his and sat. “Took me a bunch of flights before I got used to it, too.”
“Feel like a fool,” he admitted, thinking that he was losing hero points with her in a major way.
She laid her hand on the taut muscles of his thigh and smoothed it reassuringly. “Let’s get your mind off the flight.”
His eyebrows shot up in surprise, one thought paramount about how she could accomplish that.
As she realized where his mind had gone, she blushed, and waved her hands. “No way, not the mile high club.”
“Hell, no. Alexander would shoot me just for thinking about it,” he kidded, and actually managed a chuckle, but his comment only brought additional color to Tatiana’s cheeks.
“You thought about it? Really?” she asked with a slight stammer.
The plane did another little bounce, but the last thing he was thinking about now was dying. All he could think about was Tatiana and him in the bedroom on the plane, making love.
“You’re a beautiful woman, Tatiana. I’d have to be dead not to think about about it,” he confessed.
First, thanks to Musings and Ramblings for letting me visit today to chat with you about my new romantic suspense release, TO CATCH A PRINCESS.
I love romantic suspense, especially when it involves a hot sexy police detective. I guess that’s what made me dream up Atlantic City police detective Peter Roman. Peter first appeared in THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE and I knew back then that he kind of had a crush on his best friend’s younger sister, Princess Tatiana Ivanov.
Tatiana is all grown-up now and helping her brother, Prince Alexander, run the Ivanov gambling empire which has locations in Atlantic City, Macao and the fabulous and luxurious Monte Carlo. It’s the last location that’s at risk when Peter realizes that a high end cat burglar known as the Thief of Hearts may have set his sights on stealing some multi-million dollar jewelry from a big charity event that Tatiana has organized at the Ivanov Monte Carlo property.
After Peter warns his friends, there’s just one thing to do: head to Monaco to try to thwart the Thief of Hearts. And of course, it only makes sense for Peter to accompany Tatiana to not only make sure the jewels are safe, but that she is out of danger.
There’s just one problem with that plan. Peter Roman isn’t just your everyday police officer. He’s also the Grand Prince Pytor Romanovich. He’s been living incognito for years to hide some painful family secrets.
Okay, maybe more than one problem. He’s also the man Tatiana’s parents have arranged for her to marry, something the very independent and determined princess wants no part of. Even if she finds the detective incredibly hot and sexy.
It’s going to be a battle of wills and winning Tatiana’s trust in TO CATCH A PRINCESS. It’s also going to be a life and death struggle as it turns out that there’s more going on than either Peter, Tatiana and even the Thief of Hearts know.
I hope you’ll take a moment to check out TO CATCH A PRINCESS. Thank you so much for taking the time to drop by and chat with me about the book.
