The Prince’s Captive Wife
by Marion Lennox

Harlequin Presents
ISBN 13:978-0-373-12851-8

Ten years have passed since Holly Cavanagh last saw Prince Andreas Karedes after he spent six months on her family’s Australian ranch. She never dreamed she’d be kidnapped and dragged into his presence.
With political and economic difficulties about to blow up in the kingdom of Aristo, Holly and Andreas youthful love affair and the loss of their baby could bring the kingdom down. Andreas convinces Holly that marrying him is the only way to avoid disaster.
There has never been anyone else but Andreas for Holly. The problem is she isn’t sure she can live in a royal fish bowl. Andreas finds that what he felt for Holly all those years ago is still alive. He just wishes he’d been there for Holly when their child died. He vows to make it up to her.
Realizing her need to live on the ranch in Australia, Andreas buys it and supplies Holly money to bring the ranch back to what it once was. Despite his royal obligations, Andreas knows Holly is his real family. He joins her in Australia to make a life with her.
The book is a nice little escape, with characters that are likeable. What’s not to like about being wooed by a prince.

Susan, thanks for the review. Yes, sometimes I just want to read an easy on the mind book to escape for an hour or two. This one seems to fill the bill.

Thanks for the review, Susan. I've said it before, but it's worth saying again. You are definitely creating a Presents fan out of me!
