Princess in Love

Julianne MacLean

Leopold Hunt, Marquess of Cavanaugh, is a secret Royalist with a distant hereditary claim to the throne. He has been groomed to one day overthrow the king and rebuild his family's dynasty. Only one thing stands in his way: the king's daughter, Rose.
Princess Rose has loved the marquess her entire life, but she is about to enter a political marriage—one that promises to help keep her father in power. There is virtually no way for Rose to escape her fate…yet she cannot resist the unstoppable passion she feels in the arms of the handsome and charming marquess. When a dangerous plot unfolds and puts their love to the ultimate test, Leopold must make a desperate choice: to honor his family or follow his heart….


Chapter One

June 22, 1814
"What is happening? Dear Lord, we are all going to die!"
The coach swerved ominously like a snake's tail behind the frightened team of horses. With terrifying violence, Rose was tossed out...
