Overview

A Princess engaged to a man she doesn't love.
Drawn to another man she shouldn't want.
For a love that won't be denied.

Proper Princess Arianna is the essence of style, grace, and appropriate behavior. After a disastrous love affair years ago that embarrassed both her and the royal family, she had vowed to stay on the straight and narrow, and she has. When a marriage is suggested to form an alliance with another country, she jumps at the chance for redemption; after all, she doesn't believe in love anymore. However, if that's true, why does she think of love whenever her fiancé's brother, Finn, is nearby, bringing up feelings she had long since buried?

Finn de Bara cares little about strategic political alliances and, as second in line to the throne of Brazenbourg, he doesn't have to. As the bad boy of the aristocracy, he doesn't need to settle down; he saves that for his arrogant older brother, Henry. However, when Henry becomes engaged to Arianna for convenience and not love, he can't help but be intrigued by a woman who would give up her future for her country. When the passionate nature she hides breaks through her prim exterior, Finn realizes he wants her and not just in bed. He knows his brother may make a more proper match, but can he convince her, and himself, to take a chance on each other despite the international fallout?

When Henry's true motives are revealed and Arianna is placed in danger's path, can Finn act quickly enough to help her? Or will Arianna need to save herself?

Great series. Situations, characters, and storylines are all very different. What they have in common is an awesome loving family with 9 grown siblings. Of course they play good natured pranks and tease each other, because that's what siblings do.
