I also love the simplicity and power of prayer. I cannot get through one hour without prayer and am so grateful that my Father above is always there to listen to me and help me no matter how small or massive my problem is.
What other books of yours are coming out soon? I’m focused on my Sweet Royal Suspense Romance series for the next few months. The second book, The Brave Prince and the Teacher is written but going through the rounds of edits that are painful and incredible at the same time – kind of like the growing pains of life!
If you could spend an evening with one contemporary person (not a family member of yours), who would it be and why? Elder Jeffrey Holland. His testimony of the Savior is so powerful, and I am inspired every time I listen to him speak.
What historical person would you like to meet (besides Jesus) and why? George Washington. I am incredibly inspired by his bravery and his trust in heaven. None of us would enjoy the freedom (religious and otherwise) that we take for granted every day without him.
How can you encourage authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers? I went through five years of rejection. It hurt and I cried and I am a much better writer because of it. If you love to write and you know it’s your path, pray hard, work hard, never give up, and no one will be able to stop you from succeeding.
When Macey Clifton is asked to fake an engagement to Crown Prince Tristan to protect him, she knows she’s not cut out for the royal world. She’d prefer to hide behind her unnecessary glasses, frumpy clothes, and her computer programs. But no other female warriors are available, so she agrees. To prove to herself that she really is brave, bold, and beautiful, she impulsively greets the prince with a kiss when she first meets him. To her great surprise, this most incredible kiss of the century turns out to not be with her fiancé, but with his twin brother, Ray.
Macey and Ray both try to fight their feelings, but can’t resist sneaking glances at each other. As they work together to solve the queen’s murder and protect the crown prince from anonymous death threats, they realize they are falling far too quickly in love.
Will their undeniable attraction, secret rendezvous, and forbidden love blossom into a happily ever after, or only cause a shattered brotherhood and longing for something they’ll never have?
Please give us the first page of the book.
Macey Clifton gaped out the window of the silver Audi A8. Her boss, Sutton Smith, drove smoothly through the narrow country road of a picturesque mountain valley, past lakes and fields and the most perfect stone homes with flower baskets on each window.
Sutton slowed as he reached the far end of the valley and entered the quaint village of Greenville. The row of shops and restaurants, each two stories with balconies and flowers spilling over the wrought-iron railings, and a perfect stone church with a steeple reaching to heaven, butted up against a peaceful mountain lake. Above the lake, perched on a green knoll and watching over its valley below, was a castle.
A castle! She, Macey Clifton, reclusive nerd who hid from the world in Sutton Smith’s basement command center and made sure every computer program, security protocol, and all the various surveillance equipment worked correctly for the hundreds of security details Sutton and his people were undertaking at any given moment, was going to live in a castle with the royal family of Augustine and pretend to be engaged to the crown prince.
There were many problems with this op, the first one being she was a reclusive nerd.
No, the first problem was that Macey had seen a picture of the crown prince. “Hyperventilating again,” she muttered.
“Deep breaths,” Sutton counseled, unruffled as ever.
Macey tried. In … and out …
Prince Tristan and each of his five brothers, one of whom was his identical twin, had been blessed with startling blue eyes, welcoming smiles, and insanely handsome faces. They were all sought after by gorgeous, influential, accomplished, and powerful women throughout the world.
None of the princes had married yet, even though Prince Tristan and his twin were thirty years old. Macey wasn’t worried about some jealous female trying to take her out, though that was a possibility. She was concerned how anybody would believe the ultra-good-looking, wealthy, apparently charming prince would choose her. Somehow she had to play the part of confident future princess … future queen … oh boy.
