Brooding ranch owner Brody Hamilton keeps his heart out of reach. But there’s something about vivacious stable manager Lucy that brings joy to his hardened soul. Only he must put his past behind him before he can put a ring on her finger…

Lucy Farnsworth has just discovered she’s of royal blood. She should be glad, but it’s blown her world apart and she just finds herself wanting to be the old Lucy again. At Prairie Rose Ranch Lucy’s found the man who makes her feel she belongs. Only she hasn’t told him she’s a princess…

Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Lucy Farnsworth’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother just died a few months ago, and she has been drowning in new and strange experiences. Just before she died, Lucy’s mother introduced her to her father, King Alexander from the small island country of Marazur. Understandably, Lucy now feels like she doesn’t even know who she is.

This trip to Prairie Rose Ranch in the foothills of Alberta might be just the thing to help her get her life back on an even keel. Therefore, she decides that she is not going to tell the people at Prairie Rose Ranch that King Alexander is her father, only that she is his stable manager.

Brody Hamilton takes one look at King Alexander’s stable manager, and his whole body stands to attention. But he’s been burned before, and he’s vowed that never again will he allow passion to rule over common sense.

Will the two of them be able to work out a business arrangement between the stables of Marazur and Canada’s Prairie Rose Ranch? Or is their desire for each other going to take the upper hand and ruin everything?

Brody was a strong, handsome alpha male. He also still had a lot of anger toward his ex-wife, which at times got dumped on Lucy. At first Lucy was a meek little thing, and I despaired of her ever finding her backbone, but when the time came, she stood right up to everyone and made her beliefs known in no uncertain terms.

This book, like all Donna Alward’s books, caught me right into the story, and held my interest to the very last page. Donna has a very direct and down-to-earth way of writing that I thoroughly enjoy. Read this wonderful love story for yourself and see how two people who think they’re unsuited for each other, are, in the end, more than suited.
