I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Six years ago Crown Prince Thaddeus abandoned his new bride and went into hiding. His motive was to protect his country and his family from a ruthless tyrant. But when his estranged wife tracks him down, Thaddeus knows it's time to make a stand. Restore the royal line. And reclaim the crown. Yet just as he learns about the family's new addition—his and Monica's son—little Peter becomes a target. In a deadly game of power, Thaddeus must choose between the country and heritage he's been raised to defend…and the woman he never could forget.


This is a Happily Ever After for the Whole County kind of book.

Five-six years ago the was an explosion during the Royal Family's motorcade. The first three books explain what is happening, the trouble everyone is having trying to protect their tiny Christian country from a madman with the brains and money to defeat them. A man who wants to rule and doesn't like to lose.

While this is book four, it has been long enough since I read the others that I'm sure you won't be disappointed. You'll miss the journey the others had to make but you shouldn't feel lost in the story.

I'm happy to note that the author has not abandoned the county and I'm looking forward to reading more.

Oh, I mentioned it was a clean read. The whole country was based on Christian values, they pray frequently during the series and in this book, the kisses happen between husband and wife. No going behind doors either. Just Kisses.

Other challenges this works for:

Contemporary Romance

Let Me Count the Ways
Mt TBR - An Embarrassment of Riches
Read 52 Books in 52 Weeks

Totally reminds me of the old Harlequin romances I read in the 70's. Still have 4 or 5 in the shelves. :)
