Now Available!

A billionaire prince destined to rule the world. A woman determined to save it.

Jennifer Allen is on a mission to assist refugees, not to be swept away by a fairy tale prince…even if the prince in question is a drop-dead sexy billionaire. When Prince Antony diTalora visits her camp, she’s certain it’s a publicity stunt and keeps him at arm’s length. But when he invites her to the palace to speak about her work, it brings her beliefs into question and has her looking at Prince Charming in a whole new light.

Prince Antony diTalora has wealth, power, and everything a man could want, except someone to share his life. Duty demands he marry well and produce an heir, but when Antony meets an intriguing American who challenges his views, his privileged life is turned on its head.

But can two people from such different worlds really live happily ever after?

Behind the Scenes

The plot for this story originated way back in June of 1999, during the wedding of Britain’s Prince Edward and Sophie Rhys-Jones. The wedding was broadcast in the United States, and Nicole was flipping back and forth between the royal wedding and CNN coverage of the war in Kosovo. The terms of an international peace plan had been accepted a few weeks before, and NATO troops had entered Pristina. The contrast between the situation in Kosovo and the grandeur of the wedding had Nicole asking, “What if?” and soon she began plotting the meeting of a prince and a refugee camp worker.

Read an Excerpt

La Rocca di Zaffiro, SAN RIMINI – More than three hundred carefully selected guests converged on this northern Adriatic country last night to celebrate Prince Antony Lorenzo diTalora’s thirty-fourth birthday in the royal palace’s famous Imperial Ballroom.

Conversation throughout the evening focused not on the prince’s planned state visit to China later this week, but on the prince’s age and relationship status. The diTalora family has the longest continuous reign in Europe and can attribute that longevity—at least in part—to their tradition of marrying young.

Antony is now the oldest San Riminian crown prince not to have wed and produced an heir.
