The Prince's Runaway Lover by Robin Covington is a sweet modern fairy tale that will keep you enthralled until the very end. It's the seventh installment in The Men of the Zodiac Series. It's a quick fast read and can be read as a standalone.
Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton is a sexy, tatted , pierced playboy who self indulges in his rich royal lifestyle. He's an Olympic triathlete and sports enthusiast who happens to live life on the edge and has no desire to ever be King of Callanos.
Until he has no choice...
A tragic plane crash takes the life of Nick's brother and sister in law, leaving Nick, the heir to the spare, next in line to be the ruler of Callanos. A responsibility and title he has never wanted.
Isabel Reynolds is the sensual, voluptuous gardner who works on the palace grounds. She happens to catch the attention of Prince Nicholas and she doesn't know how to handle this revelation because her plans are not to stay in Callous long...and getting involved with the the Prince would blow her cover and her plans of staying under the radar.
There is immediate attraction between Nick and Isabel that neither can refute. They start out as friends, and as their friendship blossoms, they can't deny the spark between them...both knowing that becoming involved romantically could be disastrous and harmful...as well as jeopardizing his rein to the throne.
Will Nick and Isabel be able to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of their undeniable love and his rein to the throne? Will Isabel's past stay in the past or will it come back and destroy what she has built with Nick? And will Nick be able to put his playboy ways behind him for good?
The Prince's Runaway Lover was a sweet enjoyable read...and even though it was a quick read, I didn't feel like the story was rushed. This was my first book by this author and I look forward to reading many more from her.
I give The Prince's Runaway Lover 3.5 Crazie Stars!! ~Kim
