Royalty has never been so scandalous! Heiress Angelina Carpenter traded in diamonds for denim--and the freedom to make her own choices--when she fled from her arranged marriage to Sheikh Taj Ahmad.

Now working as a nanny for the royal family of Santina, Angelina can't help but risk a glimpse at the glamorous life she left behind during a lavish party...and runs straight into Taj! And this time, the ruthless sheikh has no intention of letting his runaway bride get away...

A prequel novella to The Santina Crown series.

More About the Author

Maisey Yates started writing stories from the moment she first learned how to form words with a pen. But she never had any idea what to write, and most stories sat started, half formed and half finished, but never completed.
During her high school and college years she spent a lot of time dreaming about holding a book in her hands that had her name emblazoned across the front, but she did a lot more dreaming than actual writing.
At her very first job she was fortunate enough to meet her very own tall, dark and handsome hero, who happened to be her boss, and promptly married him and started a family. It wasn't until she was pregnant with her second child that she found her very first Harlequin Presents in a local thrift store. She'd never read a Harlequin romance before, and by the time she'd reached the happily ever after she had fallen in love. She devoured as many as she could get her hands on after that, and she knew that these were the books she wanted to write!
Soon after that she saw online that Harlequin was running a competition to win an editor for a year. She decided that was her sign to get in gear and start writing again. So she wrote her chapter and synopsis and hit send with trembling hands. She didn't get any feedback from the contest, but it was the boost she needed to get her first full manuscript finished and submitted to Presents.
Nearly two years later, while pregnant with her third child, she received The Call from her editor, informing her they wanted to buy that manuscript. She was very glad that the good news didn't send her promptly into labor!
She still can't quite believe she's blessed enough to see her name on, not just any book, but her favorite books.
Maisey lives with her supportive, wonderful, diaper-changing husband and three small children across the street from her parents, and the home she grew up in, in the wilds of Southern Oregon.
She enjoys the contrast of living in a place where you might wake up to find a bear on your back porch and then heading into the home office to write stories that take place in exotic, urban locales.

I normally enjoy MY tales, but this one was boring, with a female lead to whom I wanted to say 'love, grow up and get in the real world'.

It was too short to be anywhere near good, and I couldn't believe that when the female lead announced her pregnancy and the male lead announced that they would marry, her only response was 'yes'. She was meant to be a modern American female - but, seemingly the backbone she'd found three years earlier had deserted her.

There was no real break-up, make-up to this tale, as it barely got going, and it ended too conveniently, with her backbone still missing. One to miss, I'm afraid.

This was well written but I found the storyline too far fetched. I could not feel for the characters and as it was rather short did not get into the book properly.
