His Undercover Princess

Shock froze Elle to the spot. She couldn’t blink. She couldn’t breathe. All she could do was feel the banging of her heart as panic sent it into overdrive. The people who killed her family had found her. “This is for your own good,” he said as he looked down at her. “I couldn’t take the chance you’d fight me, and there isn’t time to explain.” Too damn bad for him, because her fight-or-flight response zinged into action. Whatever was in the cloth, she didn’t want to breathe it in. Adrenaline clawed at her, demanding life-giving oxygen, but she refused to give in. They might have murdered everyone she loved and sent her into hiding, but she wouldn’t go down without a fight. She grabbed his arms, yanking and stabbing her nails into the sliver of his wrists not covered by his shirt. He didn’t flinch. Dom kept his cold gaze on her, a icy determination making them even bluer somehow. “Just relax and breathe.” Fat fucking chance. Holding on to his forearms for leverage, she slammed her knee upward, aiming for his most vulnerable spot. He deflected the move with an ease of a natural athlete or a man trained to do whatever it took to force the world to do his bidding. She fought against him, kicking and hitting, but he kept the cloth pressed against her nose and mouth. Her lungs burned with the effort not to breathe as she struggled in his iron grasp, but it didn’t do her any good. Blackness ate around the edges of her vision, the lack of oxygen taking its toll. She didn’t have long before she’d pass out, with or without the help of whatever chemical was in the cloth. Ten years. She’d made it a decade without anyone finding her, without her secret coming out. Foolishly, she’d thought she was finally safe. Now she’d pay the price for a crown she’d never worn and a kingdom she’d never ruled. Dom pulled her close to his hard chest so she wouldn’t fall to the cold marble floor, holding her tight but without cruelty. No doubt that would come later. “Everything is going to be okay, Princess Eloise,” he whispered against her ear. “I promise.” But it wouldn’t. She knew better than to ever trust a man who promised happy endings in the middle of a kidnapping. “Dom—”

My Review: I received this book for an honest review.  Elle is hiding in plain sight and has been for 10 years. She has nothing but her job she doesn’t want to be found. When she is kidnapped by Domenick Rasmussen she knows she is discovered. He has to prove he is not going to hurt her.  They have different views and their personalities are clashing but the heat between them are hot. 

You will be taken on a ride in this book, kept on your toes and will not want to put it down.
