I was at a small village sports festival this weekend and took a gold medal for air rifle shooting. Nobody was more surprised than I. I hadn't shot one of those in twenty years. I'm ridiculously bad at sports, but now seems I might be good at sports where all I have to do is stand still. Hmm... I'm thinking if I could find a sport where all I had to do was sit, I might even make it all the way to the regional level!
How was your weekend?
My new book SAVED BY THE MONARCH is out this week, so I'm celebrating that. Here is a little taste...
Picture yourself going on a much-needed European vacation to the country of your ancestors. You’re getting off the airplane, and the red carpet is odd, but not alarming. Except, the hot guy in the fancy uniform waiting at the end, in front of a line of guards, is not head of security.
He is a prince.
Now try not to let your chin drop when he tells you that your parents had promised him your hand in marriage before they died --when you were still a child.
He whisks you away in the royal ceremonial limousine before you can get your bearings. And by the time you manage to tell him that under no circumstances will you be entering an arranged marriage with a stranger, you are both kidnapped by anti-monarchy rebels.
You don’t know the country’s politics, you don’t know the lay of the land, you don’t speak the local dialects. You only have one chance for survival: you must trust your life to the prince.
~~Forget kissing frogs. Meet Prince Miklos of Valtria.
And if the crown fits…~~
Have a wonderful day!
