Princess Catharine, second in line to Valleria’s throne after her elder twin brother, has been indulged her whole life. A surprise at birth, her parents have doted upon her – until now. Her mother has issued a queen’s edict: become engaged by the time of her elder brother’s wedding – or else. Philip, a Vallerian noble if ever there was one, could be the perfect fiancé, or a perfect fake one, in any case.
Cat could easily pretend to fawn over the handsome man and fool her mother and the press. At least, she could if she wasn’t falling for her bodyguard and Royal Protection agent, Edward Bashiera. One heated kiss between them at the Holiday Ball is hard to forget, and even harder when she learns more about the man underneath the venerable veneer.
When circumstances change, and suddenly Catharine must ensure the family legacy, can she put aside a growing love for duty? And, when a terrible deception comes to light, will Edward be able to protect Cat when she needs it most?
