The princess can pick any man…apart from him

What will she choose:
Her duty or her heart?

Princess Minerva is set to inherit the crown of the small kingdom of Arqaleta. First, though, she must marry.

A ripple of shock goes through her when she sees one completely off-limits candidate among her suitors: her ex-fiancé, exiled prince turned tycoon Liro!

When Liro broke their betrothal and disappeared, Minerva was devastated. Yet even with the past still raw between them, their passion erupts immediately!

Her royal responsibility demands she choose another man.

Only the more time she spends in Liro’s alluring presence, the more wearing anyone else’s ring feels unthinkable…

This is an adult 18+ story that may contain language, possible violence, and/or sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

There are so many things to absolutely love about A Ring to Claim Her Crown that I don’t even know where to begin without gushing about this one!

Two young royals, one who knows they are betrothed by their families and one who does not spend an amazing summer falling in love.  Only to find their future shattered… for, perhaps, different reasons at the time.  Both moved on to create a far different future.  Or did they?  Minerva took her passion for archery to the Olympics, and Liro took his passion to stand on his own as he worked hard to become the successful businessman/tycoon he is today.  Both knew she would one day be Queen, but neither dreamed that they’d ever meet again, given the way they parted.

But fourteen years after that devastating day, everything is about to change for Liro and Min.

I’m not about to spoil one bit of this delightful romance for anyone.  What I can and will do is shout to the rooftops how much I loved this couple’s romance!  I fall a bit in love with all heroes in romance novels, but Liro is definitely in my top five of the most-loved heroes ever.  His grand gesture was *a chef’s kiss* perfect for this particular couple.  His love for Min is so overwhelmingly obvious at that moment.  Talk about melting a heart into a puddle!

I loved this story and would highly recommend it to any romance reader, no matter your preferred genre – there’s a bit of everything you might enjoy right here in one story.  Definitely going on the re-read list.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.
