The first book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas? Smoke & Mirrors Duology following the scandal of a rebellious British princess who falls in love with a Hollywood actor
Her father is the king of England. She is the Controversial Princess.
Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by the king, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors?lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to the king?s demand to marry a man she does not love.
Despite Adeline?s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated?that is, until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defenses overwhelms her?his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she?s otherwise slowly drowning. But while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he?s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows the king and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.
Josh Jameson nevertheless becomes the Adeline?s ultimate vice. And although the princess bows to no one, Adeline bows to him.
