Review of THE PRINCE'S TEXAS BRIDE by Victoria Chancellor (see her website)
A ROYAL TWIST
Harlequin American #959, February 2003
Prince Alexi of Belgovia (a mythical former Soviet republic) doesn't have much patience for boring makework. While touring Texas, he yields to impulse and joins a beautiful waitress on a trip across Texas leaving responsibility and his entourage behind (see THE PRINCE'S COWBOY DOUBLE for the story of what happened to his assistant).
Ex-waitress and accountant-to-be Kerry Lynn can't ignore the attraction she feels toward the handsome prince, nor can she deny feelings that grow beyond purely physical as she spends time with him and learns how caring he is. But she knows, and Alexi knows, that their romance is a temporary thing. Too soon, he will have to return to his responsibilities and marry an appropriate European of noble birth. Newly re-established kingdoms just can't bring in Texas brides.
When Alexi learns that Kerry became pregnant as a result of their brief romance, his world-view changes. He wants to marry Kerry, to bring their child into the world together. But can Kerry trust his change of heart? Or will he break her heart again, abandoning her for some new adventure, just as he abandoned his staff for an adventure with her?
Author Victoria Chancellor (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by this author) delivers a charming fairy tale. Everything has been easy for Alexi, and Kerry has learned to rely on herself, never depending on a man for anything. Only by learning to trust, and to stick with things when they get hard can the two create a life together. But can the two overcome their pasts?
