Book Description:

In a case that could change her career, Miranda uncovers a love that will change her life.

When Miranda Hunt sees the classified ad for an heiress to the legendary Last Chance Ranch, she knows assuming the identity of Annie Beckman is the perfect cover. As one of the finest agents for the Pinkerton Detective Agency, Miranda has been tasked with apprehending the Phantom—an elusive and notorious train robber thought to be hiding on the sprawling ranch.

But she isn’t the only one at the ranch with something to hide. Wells Fargo detective Jeremy Taggart is working undercover as well. Their true identities may be a secret, but it is impossible for Jeremy and Miranda to hide the sparks flaring between them.

Neither is about to let romance interfere with such a huge case. Besides, Miranda hasn’t removed Jeremy from her list of suspects yet. The closer they get to uncovering the identity of the Phantom, the more dangerous he gets—and no one on the ranch is safe.

The longer Miranda and Jeremy spend working together, the harder it becomes to keep their feelings in check. Their careers—and their lives—depend on solving this case. Love will just have to wait.

My Review:

I really liked reading this book! It was funny, witty, and well written. I loved the mystery of the novel and how Miranda decide to take the role of Annie Beckman. Miranda and Jeremy meet and the reader definitely knows that there are sparks between both Miranda and Jeremy. Not knowing the real identities could have made their romance a very complicated matter, but if they had not went undercover, then they would have never met and found a love that they had never known before. I loved seeing the characters Jeremy and Miranda play undercover for their jobs. Margaret Brownley did an awesome job developing the characters and making sure that one did not know which way the story was going to go. Although I thought that Margaret Brownley did an awesome job with the book and the characters, there was something missing. Some books just go over the top and this book did not do that. I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Book Description

Once Upon a Prince, the first novel in the Royal Wedding series by bestselling author Rachel Hauck, treats you to a modern-day fairy tale.

Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess—just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn’t going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life.

The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simon’s Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duties, and his family’s tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna’s aid under the fabled Lover’s Oak, he is blindsided by love.

Their lives are worlds apart. He’s a royal prince. She’s an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel’s coronation.

My Review

So this book took me a while to get to as I read a lot of books and this one was an Ebook which I don’t like as well as a real book. Anyways, I really liked this book and although I don’t think I will ever fall in love with a prince, I could really relate to this book!

Susanna Truitt thinks she is love with her boyfriend of 12 years until he tells her that he wants to break up which totally comes out of the blue to her. When I read this part I totally understood because I had just found out something about someone I really cared about for a really long time. I was devastated, but just like Susanna I realized I was grateful that it happened and that I didn’t get any more involved than I already was.

Truthfully, I am a hopeless romantic with no love life so I read romance because I love sappy romance. This book was definitely a typical romance with a few twists and turns. I loved reading it and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance with a prince!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars!
