It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

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.

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