A death that wasn’t what it seemed … A kidnapping that isn’t what it seems … Time is running out.
The morning after his wedding night, Prince Marcelo thought he’d be embarking on a journey to his own personal fairytale happily ever after with his husband Efren, the crown prince of Zioneven. But when news arrives indicating his sister’s death wasn’t as accidental as previously thought, that journey becomes fraught with danger.
Enmeshed in political intrigue, death, and a kidnapping that might not be what it seems, will Efren untangle the web of misleading clues in time to save the naïve young man he’s already come to admire? Or will Marcelo dig deep to discover a previously untapped inner strength and determination to facilitate his own survival?
I wished for more of story between Marcelo and Efren when I read The Contingency Plan and it was delivered with this book. They are currently on their way back to Efren’s home but get quite the detour.
I am still so glad the Marcelo is getting the opportunity to actually live his life with Efren and gets the chance to look towards his future and what he wants to accomplish. Efren really is sweet with Marcelo and no matter how much he doesn’t really want emotions to get in the way you can quickly see that he is quickly starting to care for Marcelo. It was great to see Marcelo stand up for himself survive when he was in danger.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and I like the visual of Marcelo.
