Ainsley is an aristocrat who dreams of landing a prince.
Ben is a commoner whose work is his life.
Will a secret fling lead them to a love neither saw coming?
For as long as I can remember I’ve had a long list of things I desire in a husband.
He must be of noble birth. Wealthy, of course.
Thank goodness my friend Caroline is working her royal matchmaking magic, searching for the perfect man to place a crown on my head.
I’m meeting kings, princes, the most eligible men in the world… so why is the only man I’m interested in Caroline’s brother?
Ben is a physician—intelligent and kind, driven to help others. But he’s not interested in balls and high society. The man doesn’t even care about money! He’s a doctor who practically donates his time to his patients in parts of the world where medical care is scarce.
His idea of luxury is running water.
But his passion for life is intoxicating, and the way he looks at me makes me feel like more than a trophy. There’s something so real, almost primal about him that keeps me up at night.
I can’t tell Caroline. She’s put her reputation on the line to make me a queen.
Perhaps Ben and I can have a secret fling.
No one needs to know.
Because it definitely won’t last…
