Summary/Annotation -> "A delightful love story... worth reading again and again."- Publishers Weekly Starred Review A life of royalty seems so attractive... until you're invited to live it... Smart, ambitious, and career driven, Bronte Talbot started following British royalty in the gossip mags only to annoy her intellectual father. But her fascination has turned into a not-so-secret guilty pleasure. When she starts dating a charming British doctoral student, she teases him unmercifully about the latest scandals of his royal countrymen, only to find out-to her horror!!-that she's been having a fling with the nineteenth Duke of Northrop, and now he wants to make her... a duchess? In spite of her frivolous passion for all things royal, Bronte isn't at all sure she wants the reality. Is becoming royalty every American woman's secret dream, oris it a nightmare of disapproving dowagers, paparazzi, stiff-upper-lip tea parties, and over-the-top hats?

Put them together and watch the sparks fly. Sizzling fun!"- Jill Mansell, New York Times bestselling author of Nadia Knows Best "A whole new twist on trans-Atlantic romance-sexy, fresh, and delightfully different."-Susanna Kearsley, New York Times bestselling author of Mariana
