Now that he's shunned the princess, will he marry the maid?
After narrowly escaping a royal marriage of convenience orchestrated by his meddling father, businessman Will Rowling is going after what he wants. And make no mistake, he wants Cat Iberra his father's maid, and the woman who got away when they were young. All it takes is a stolen kiss to get the seduction started.
But Cat's reluctant about the reunion. Fool her once, shame on Will, but fool her twice well, maybe she's in the mood to be fooled. But will a family secret scuttle her second chance with the man who won't let go of her heart?
I am coming into this series cold not having read the previous books this one is linked to. It can be read as a stand a lone in my opinion but like most series would be even better read in order. Cat is not new to the charms of Will Rowling. She fell for him 4 years ago and he broke her heart when he picked money and his father over her. Little did she know Will was protecting her from his father. It's taken him four long painstaking years to get some revenge on his father for his controlling ways and for making him hurt Cat. Now Will is working at hard to get Cat to see he has changed. That she means something to him. Without reading the last book you can still get the gist of what happened previously as it is brought up once or twice. I love that Will and his twin brother James who apparently had not been close in a while find their way back to a great brother bond. Cat is this strong women who instead of sulking when Will dumped her decided to get a life for herself and has been diligently working for that for the last four years. Now her life is thrown into turmoil again by the same man. She just has to decide if he's worth trusting again. For 192 pages this book packs a lot of story into a small amount of pages. Enjoyable and engaging from beginning to end!
