Prince Antonio Aussa is almost out of time. If he doesn’t find a wife within the next two weeks, he’ll be forced to forsake his destiny and disappoint his parents.
Kristin Wells is desperate for money. If she doesn’t find a well-paying job soon, her dream of finishing grad school will die.
When Kristin walks into Antonio’s Miami office, he sees a way out of his royal dilemma, but first he needs to convince her to go along with his plan. Before either knows what’s happening, their whirlwind pretend romance turns into something more. But soon their seemingly perfect union stirs up more trouble than they could have ever imagined, jeopardizing their agreement.
With everything on the line for them, can the couple from opposite worlds find a way to make their arrangement work, or will their deeper connection cause them to lose everything in the end…including each other?
Marcus Aussa is bound by duty to find a bride. The task should be easy enough for the handsome prince, but finding the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with is vastly different from what he’s accustomed to. But when his oldest brother welcomes his new bride and her friend to Avce, Marcus thinks he may have found the perfect woman.
When Renee Brown agrees to escort her best friend on a trip to Avce, she knows it will be the experience of a lifetime. Her theory proves true when she meets Marcus, the crown prince’s handsome younger brother. What begins as innocent flirty turns into a whirlwind summer fling, and she’s okay with that. But their short time together draws them closer than expected – so close that known assassin’s target both. As the danger increases, Marcus’ protective nature takes hold. Now, neither can imagine their lives without the other.
When their time together comes to an end, will they welcome the distance or will they do whatever it takes to be together forever?
Political consultant Amy Fields only experienced jealousy once in her life, and that’s the way she’d like to keep it. Watching her older sister carry-on with the boy she absolutely adored in high school enough to make her never want to feel second-best again.

When his brother convinces him that he can find the perfect bride online, Lucio reluctantly agrees to go along with the plan. The search dredges up old feelings about Amy’s older sister, and prompts him to want to rekindle their broken relationship. But when the internet search points to Amy as his perfect mate, that changes everything. Now, he must reconcile the feelings he had for her sister with the realization that Amy is far more interesting than she ever was.

Princes of Avce
Prince’s of Avce series by Victoria Pinder. I totally enjoyed books one and three, but the silly behavior of the heroine in made book two a chore to read. Here are the reviews I posted as each book was published.
Forbidden Crown has good guys, bad guys, romance, political intrigue, and a cast of interesting characters that should engage readers who like commoner to royalty stories with an interesting twist. I received an advance reader copy of this book. My review is voluntary.
Forbidden Prince continues the story of the royals of Avce, begun in Forbidden Crown. When roommate Kristen’s Prince flies her to see his country, Renee tags along. She has been crushing on the crown prince’s brother, Marco for years and is more than happy to actually get to know him. While I normally enjoy Victoria Pinder’s books this one was sometimes painful, even with all the intrigue swirling around trying to derail the royals’ claims to their throne. Renee was totally caught up in choosing a man her parents would approve of as befitting being included in their country club set. Her angsty agonizing got old even as she became intimate with Marco the day they met. I simply could not relate to this flaky immature character. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.
Forbidden Royal. Lucio, the third prince of Avce is surprised when his computer generated best match turns to be Amy Fields, the younger sister of his high school crush. Her parents really need the alliance with Avce more than he wants a wife, but according to the law he has to wed...and soon. Can he convince Amy to trust him enough to commit? His country still is being threatened by anarchists. Can he protect her if she does? This was a great addition to this series with likable characters and challenging situations. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.
