Win a throne, but lose him forever?
Katie Davis is a perfectly ordinary young woman living a perfectly ordinary life in small-town Wisconsin … isn’t she?

The most interesting thing about her is that she works for the men’s basketball office at Ashton University. If she considers the biggest perk of the job being around assistant basketball coach Brad Spencer, that also makes her ordinary, because what woman wouldn’t feel that way? So these people coming around saying she could be the long-missing granddaughter of the King of Bariavak have to be wrong … don’t they?

Brad has a real soft spot for Katie. She stirs his protectiveness, his penchant for the underdog, and, possibly, certain other reactions he’s not about to indulge.

So he’s going to do his damnedest to make sure Katie gets all that she deserves, including the crown that might be hers by right … even though it means Her Royal Highness will never again look at a basketball coach from Wisconsin like he’s the king of her heart.

Did you miss meeting a young Brad Spencer in Hoops, the full-length prequel to The Surprise Princess? Be sure to catch up on how C.J. and Carolyn fell in love.

The Surprise Princess is Book 7 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's The Wedding Series. If you love heartwarming contemporary romances with a touch of humor and characters you’ll never forget, this series will captivate you.
