Summary

An unexpected letter from an old friend, His Royal Highness Prince Kraus of Oldessa, to the Duke of Norlington contains a surprise that could change the lives of the young Duke and his ravishing sister, Lady Latasha, forever.Happily living on the Norlington family estate, quietly content amongst the lovely gardens and beauty of the English countryside, both siblings are astonished to learn that the Prince is seeking the Duke’s consent for his brother, Prince Stefan, to ask for Latasha’s hand in marriage. Appalled at the thought of marrying a man she has never met, Latasha quickly realises that this is a political alliance that would benefit Prince Kraus, regardless of her feelings. Beautiful and intelligent, Latasha understands her main charm for him is her blood link to the Royal family, and the British protection such a marriage would afford his small principality from a Russian takeover. Whilst appreciating the severity of the situation in the Balkans, Latasha quickly makes it clear that she intends only to marry for love. Defiant and headstrong, she is horrified when she realises that Queen Victoria is happy to give the match her blessing. But can she really sacrifice her own future happiness to secure the safety of others?  Torn between patriotic duty and her wish for romance, Latasha reluctantly agrees to visit Oldessa in disguise to find out what Prince Stephan can offer in return for her freedom. Accompanied only by her elderly Nanny, and with the dark forces of the Russian army threatening all those living in 'The Kingdom of Flowers’, Latasha’s dreams are tested to the limits as she battles to save a principality – and find true love.

And if his birth proves to be legitimate, then he will find himself with the one title he never wanted: Duke of Wyndham.

    Excepting a life as a thrall, she is shocked to be brought before King Bjord, the leader of the vikings who gives her a simple choice - submit to him and bear his child, or make it on her own. If she chooses to give in, it's clear that Bjord will take her rough, hard, and unprotected as she is stretched to the max.
