A reader posted that picture over there in the Blair Babylon Readers' Group on Facebook, and I about died laughing. Yes, that's pretty much the exact path of the plot. I can just see exactly what parts of the book she meant with each emoji. This post just tickles me no end.
Yes, the first book of the Flicka mini-series has been released and is available now at all the ebook websites. I've been wanting to write this book for years, ever since Wulf called Pierre “The Rat Bastard” near the end of Billionaires in Disguise: Rae. As you might remember, Flicka is Wulf von Hannover's little sister, “little” meaning 23 years old.
And ever since then, I've been dying to write this series. I almost didn't write the Lizzy series next, but I'm really glad I waited. So much has gone into this series.
And yes, there is a huge plot twist right in the beginning, right in the first scene.
If you don't want to be spoiled, STOP READING NOW, and go read the book.
So like I said in the last email, I've been lying my butt off any time that anyone asks about a certain character that is heavily featured in my previous books.
I lied so much that I'm even lying in the blurb that is up at the ebook websites. Here's your first look at the real blurb that will go up on the websites in a day or two.
When a modern princess falls in love with her bodyguard, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.
ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess. Flicka von Hannover lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after.
But then she found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess. And then a coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary.
Finally, the beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away.
The prince didn’t want to let her go. He couldn’t take his throne without her and sent henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people to look for her, too.
The prince threatened her. He said that if the princess contacted her brother or any of her friends for help, he would kill her brother and her brother’s new, pregnant wife.
So the princess ran to the only person she could trust, a man who was frankly not a handsome prince.
Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of.
No one knew that he had been her first lover and had broken her heart.
And he’s the only person who can save her.
