The Prince and the Patriot
by Kathleen Creighton
Willa Caris is determined to keep the ancient Brasovian crown jewels from returning to her homeland until the royal family can return. No Matter What. But as she tries to enlist the help of Professor Nicholas Francia, another Brasovian descendent with the ear of the government and a reputation as playboy, she finds herself flustered and enraptured by his power.
All Nicholas wants is to continue with his day, but this woman keeps getting in his way… Literally. Her stubborn nature and seductive innocence disarm him, and he is trapped by a visceral need to protect her from naïve choices by kidnapping her… Twice.
Their time together creates an unexpected, intimate bond, both sensual and emotional, but will their separate secrets, born in a distant European country to another generation, tear them apart? The Prince and the Patriot.
