The stories, or rather just my favourite story alone--King's Ransom, makes it well worth its price.
In King's Ransom,Brianna Scott, your ordinary girl-next-door, absolutely detests "foreign dignitary" Ahmed Bin Rashid. She threw a paper weight at him.
Unknown to Brianna, this overbearing "dignitary" is actually a King. One whom terrorists are after.
Sparks flew, Diana Palmer style, when His Royal Majesty is forced to live with Brianna for the duration till the terrorists are caught.
I absolutely adore the culture shock HRM encounters. Especially when it comes to food.
"Tell her to stop shoving oblong containers of suspicious meat wrapped in buns at me!"
Diana's characterisation is absolutely wonderful. One couldn't help but wish to be in Brianna's shoes...
A great story not to be missed. Enjoy,...that is, if you can get a copy!!
I find A Prince Of A Guy a bit like the story of The Prince & The Pauper. Casey Phillips from Brooklyn bears a remarkable resemblance to the kidnapped Princess Cassandra...
When Prince Eric von Lieberhaven, a real dishy kind of guy, asks Casey to stand in temporary for the real Princess,...things start to get interesting.
I enjoy the changes that Casey made whilst being a temporary princess. Casey's gleeful anticipation of the real Princess Cassandra's surprise/shock upon her return to the palace is a joy to read. It left me grinning.
In contrast, Every Night At Eight seems a bit tame. Not much of ups and downs. Selena Mastron, a sophisticated woman from an ancient family was deemed to be a suitable bride for Nicholas Sabre, King turned President.
A country in transition, they need to make both the country's democracy and their marriage work. But how to balance demanding state "careers" and a marriage ? Why, by making an appointment, of course. Every Night At Eight!!
