The Princess and the Mercenary Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Princess and the Mercenary

Princess Anne of Montebello is on a quest to find her missing brother, the heir to the throne. The problem? He was last seen in Colorado. Her answer: to trick her papa into believing she is visiting her sister in Montana, waylay her aging bodyguard and hit the open road. There is only one more problem she hadn't counted on. Her father has assigned the devastatingly handsome and devastatingly protective mercenary Tyler Ramsey to be her body guard during her 'visit', a man who makes her heart stop just by looking at him and a man who wants nothing to do with a spoiled princess. As they search for her missing brother, they get caught in a blizzard and are stuck together in a cabin where they must fight their mutual attraction for each other. *This was a wonderful book and I can't wait to read the next in the series* ~~~Silhouette Intimate Moments, #1130 (February, 2002)~~~
