The Reluctant Prince by Linda Cajio - Fiction
Author Linda Cajio ratchets up the intrigue in a thrilling story of two people who are inexorably drawn together--and desperate to stay alive.
All Emily Cooper wants is some time to heal the wounds from her broken engagement, and Peraco, a city on the Aegean sea, seems like the perfect getaway--until a sudden military coup closes the borders and traps her in a roiling chaos of riots and armed patrols. So much for her relaxing European beach vacation. As she retreats to the American Embassy, a mysterious man insists she will be safer with him. Now Emily must trust an actual prince with her life--and resist the temptation to surrender to his intoxicating charms.
Despite his royal family, Alex Kiros works hard to have a normal, everyday life in the States. He came back to Peraco to open a branch of his computer business, unaware that his uncle was about to go off the deep end and plunge the country into chaos. Now Alex is desperate to keep his presence in the city a secret while keeping this American tourist safe at the same time. The odds of them both getting out alive are slim, but there's something about Emily Cooper that makes Alex want to protect her--at any cost.
