Lessons In Love by Kate Davies

Lucy was kind enough to offer me a spot on her blog to let you all know about my latest release from Samhain, Lessons In Love. It's a fun, contemporary prince-and-nanny story that I loved writing. Here's a little info on it, and a link to an excerpt (so I don't take over the entire blog, LOL). Hope everyone is enjoying life these days, and looking forward to Lucy's new website!



Move over, Mary Poppins! A free-spirited teacher is about to give a buttoned-up royal something he never expected-a lesson in love.

Hungry for adventure and eager to break free of her snobby home town, Brynn Dexter takes a teaching job in a foreign country, sight unseen. But when she arrives, she discovers the Laurivenia Academy doesn't exist. And neither does the teaching job.

Alex du Charbonneaux, crown prince of Laurivenia, is tired of intense media scrutiny, and wary of social-climbing women who stoop to feigning interest in his vulnerable five-year-old daughter in order to get close to him. So if he fudged the details of the "teaching job" to protect his child-and his privacy-who can blame him?

His careful plans begin to unravel the moment Brynn appears on his doorstep. She is beautiful and free spirited, nothing like the dowdy, obedient nanny he ordered.

While being a nanny to a princess is a far cry from the teaching position Brynn expected, she quickly realizes the child is in dire need of a little fun in her life-as is her stuffed-shirt father. As she sets out to teach both of them how to live a little, sparks fly and unexpected passion burns between her and Alex.

But Alex's deep-rooted suspicions linger, and Brynn struggles with the feeling that she is not good enough for him. So when the paparazzi discover their affair, all bets are off.

Can the prince and the nanny find common ground-and learn to trust in love?

And, as promised, an excerpt.

Thanks, Lucy!
