AN HEIR FIT FOR A KING by Abby Green: After Paris perfume store owner Leila Verughese meets exiled playboy king Alix Saint Croix, she immediately denies her attraction to him. But Alix is persistent, and Leila eventually gives in and ends up pregnant with Alix’s child. Determined to marry her, Alix regains his kingdom and sets about proving to Leila that he wants her. He swore he’d never love again after losing his younger brother in the coup that killed his family, but realizes he can’t help falling for Leila. Excellent backstory and sparkling descriptions make Green’s story a must-read. The way Leila’s perfumes are described is quite evocative, as are Alix’s feelings about his homeland.
