For Veronica Clayton, the sudden death of her mother has turned her naturally bright and happy-go-lucky view of the world bleak. As the Police Protection Officer for the Queen’s children, she has purpose, but for the next six months, the Queen’s family is the focus of a documentary on royal life. The last thing Clay wants is a camera pointed in her face.
Katya Kovach, a refugee to Britain, knows all about death and grief. She saw her family shot in front of her and has never recovered from those dark memories. Now trained at London’s most prestigious childcare school, she’s happy as the nanny to Queen Georgina and Queen Bea’s children.
Clay is usually good-natured, but the rule-oriented Katya is not only a pain, but annoyingly beautiful, and they find themselves facing the awkward reality that everyone else is a couple except them while their every move is being filmed. Loss has defined both their lives, but guarding their hearts may prove to be the biggest heartbreak of all.
This is such a good book! I loved visiting George and Bea again and seeing them with their children was such a treat! Watching Clay and Kayta interact and eventually fall in love was a joy. There were a couple of love scenes that left me breathless but there was so much more than the romances going on. I worried a great deal about Kayta as her secret was an important part of the story that could turn deadly at any time…. There was so much going on in this story but it was well written and flowed well. This story was a joy and a delight to read.
