The Royal Bastard

Book 4 in the Royal Scandals Series

Revealing his secret could devastate a royal family. Keeping it could end his marriage.

Brilliant researcher Rocco Cornaro develops lifesaving medical devices and has become a wealthy man in the process. However, he harbors a deep secret: his mother was the secret lover of Sarcaccia’s King Carlo Barrali and Rocco is the product of their affair.

Rocco’s silence on the topic has driven away even his beloved wife, Olympic athlete Justine Flyte. But when Justine is kidnapped and Rocco is forced to confront a new, horrible truth, will it ruin their marriage forever? Or give them a second chance at love?
