From the moment their eyes met across a crowded ballroom, schoolteacher Lauren Carlyle was lost. The tal, handsome stranger had swept her into his arms for a dance... But after an unforgettable night, they went their separate ways. So much for happily ever after... until Lauren discovered they'd be living under the same roof! And suddenly she was living a very twisted fairy tale. Because the man she thought didn't have a dime to his name was none other than Alexander Gabrielle, Prince of Carpegnia. Even before Lauren learned her boarder had royal blood in his veins, she knew he was everything she'd ever wanted in a man. But could she convince him that she loved him for the man he was and not for his crown?
