    The Truth of Love

    It sounded so simple. All Rose had to do was marry Nikolai de Montez to secure the throne of Alp de Montez. For the sake of appearances, they would remain together for about a month. Then Nick would return to his law firm to practice international law and Rose would stay to help rule the country.

    The only trouble was that there was a powerful contender for the throne. Rose’s sister, Julianna, and her husband, Jacques, made things difficult for Rose and Nick from the moment they stepped off the plane. Tempers flared. Rose and Nick were virtually imprisoned by Jacques’ henchmen in an austere room somewhere in the depths of the palace.

    It certainly was an inauspicious beginning. Yet, in the cold darkness, Rose and Nick learned a lot about each other. They discovered that they could trust and depend upon each other in a world seemingly gone mad. When they are released, the fairy tale ending finally seems within their grasp. They have only to trust in the truth of love.

    Fun, fun, fun! A roller coaster fairy tale romance ride

    Marion Lennox's A ROYAL MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE is a fast-faced fun romance read set in a fairy tale atmosphere. The inheritance theme takes characters good in heart and puts them in impossible situations, creating humor, suspense while the reader alternately moves from open-eyed gasps to smiles seeing how the characters cope with each new plot twist. Rose McCray, a country vet, has had just about enough of her late husband's parents. She might as well be imprisoned and now the demands of honoring his memory have gone way over the top. When a letter arrives and plans are formed to make her claim the throne of Alp de Montez, it seems like a fairy tale come true... Nikolai de Montez, international lawyer, discovers he is the estranged heir to the throne but to rule, he must marry a woman he does not know, Rose McCray. Knowing how much the people need a change from previous monarchs, his humanitarian interests take over. A fairy tale that sounds too good and too easy to be true? True it is, but easy, never! Secret plots, greed and jealousy thwart them at every turn. Can they convince the people of Alp de Montez that this wedding is a marriage of love? Working together to help the people of this small country and protect their lives, will Nikolai and Rose find true love? Marion Lennox's A ROYAL MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE delights with a crazy roller coaster plot ride. Fast-paced in action, each new twist opens the hearts of Rose and Nikolai to each other. Each peril shows the inner character, warming the reader's heart as well. Rose's three legged dog Hoppy reveals the inner character of both villains and those with good hearts. Never overplayed or too cute, Marion Lennox writes Hoppy's character in just the right proportion to steal hearts. A ROYAL MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE uses the fairy tale form to its advantage to create a riveting romance read. A good at heart hero and heroine are drawn together by an unexpected and zany circumstance which allows them to see beyond the exterior to the depth of each other's heart and inner values. Each new crazy twist creates suspense and emotional character depth right down to the last page. A fun, fun read! Marion Lennox fans will be pleased to see the reappearance of the character of Ruby, a the good foster mother, who raised Nikolai. Ruby appears in other Marion Lennox romances, such as HIS MIRACLE BRIDE. There and here, she provides humor, common sense combined with practicality, and several emotionally moving scenes.
