A problem princess

Anna Harrington

Book - 2023

General Clayton Elliott, Home Office Undersecretary and new viscount, gets suspicious when London is too quiet. Everyone says that the anarchist group he's been fighting died along with its leader, but his instincts say just the opposite. Then he meets Her Serene Highness Princess Cordelia of Monrovia. Resigned to doing her duty for her country, she is in London to make a match with a royal duke--and as a royal princess, she has no say in which duke she'll marry. But when she is shockingly attacked at a party, Clayton becomes her bodyguard. Is there a connection between the evil group Scepter and whoever apparently wants the princess dead? The longer Clayton and Cordelia spend evading her enemies and pursuing their individual miss...ions, the more they realize they can depend only on each other...

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Harrington's un-put-downable sixth Lords of the Armory Regency romance (after A Remarkable Rogue) kicks off with Princess Cordelia of Monrovia traveling to London to seek a political marriage to a British duke. When a mysterious assailant holds a knife to Cordelia's throat, she is saved by General Clayton Elliott, who agrees to act as Cordelia's bodyguard. Following an explosion at an event attended by Cordelia, Clayton spirits her away from London, convinced that the attacks are related to the criminal organization known as Scepter's continued efforts to overthrow the British government. Unsure whom to trust, the pair must rely on each other as they investigate the attacks. Cordelia is drawn to the way Clayton treats her like an ordinary person, rather than a princess, while Clayton is enamored with Cordelia's kindness and strength. The difference in their stations should prevent them from being together, but their chemistry is undeniable. Uniting pulse-pounding mystery with emotionally charged forbidden romance, this may be Harrington's best yet. (Apr.)
