Prince Creston SuMartra’s wicked ways, charming arrogance, and brazenness have defined his place in the royal family. As the youngest heir, he will never inherit the crown and never aspires to. Being the wild playboy prince fits him much better than a crown of worn gold which holds the heavy responsibilities of an entire nation.
When his father tasks him with a very delicate and secret mission, Creston cringes at the thought of swooping in to save some needy clueless princess. But he knows by the glint in his father’s eyes it’s not a request, and no one refuses the King. Creston will go, but he’ll do it his way.
Lis MacKenzie isn’t someone who can be ordered around. She’s strong and independent. So why is she allowing Prince Creston to whisk her away to a far-off land where nothing makes sense? She has no interest in meeting some king who claims to be her father.
Loving Lis comes with responsibilities Creston’s run from all his life. Now he must decide if going from spare to heir is what he wants. He never desired to be King, but has Creston finally found something worth reaching for?
