Mari Roe was in no way prepared for the tall, dark, and handsome hunk that walked into her diner, and proceeded to sweep her off of her feet. After spending a very enjoyable evening talking Ki invited Mari to join him on the rest of his business trip. Mari knew what he was really asking, and as tempted as she was, she wasn’t that type of girl. Before she knew what was happening she was on a helicopter flying to join him at a hidden destination, with her stomach in knots.
The lights and glamour that greeted her only made her realize the vast differences between the two of them. The beautiful dress and shoes he had sent for her to wear belonged in the luxurious setting, but she did not. She would bet nothing Ki owned came from a big box store.
Mari struggled on a daily basis to raise her younger sister after their mother died. She worked at the diner and supplemented her income by providing the sleepy little town she grew up in with tasty, and oh so yummy baked goods. That meant working long hours into the night to have everything ready for delivery in the mornings.
What Ki offered was tempting but wasn’t possible. Once her sister left for college Mari wanted to experience for once in her life, what Prince Ki offered. What she felt for him, would be impossible to ever find again. She knew it couldn’t lead to anything more and she had to be able to walk away when it was time with her heart intact.
Prince Kiliad SuMartra at first thought his ever meddlesome parents put the delectable Mari in his path. It would be just like them to push a future daughter-in-law hopeful in front of him. It had happened before. Their demand for his marriage and grandchildren was becoming difficult to ignore. He knew he must marry but no one he had met interested him for more than a casual fling. Until, Mari Roe threw the door of the restaurant open and marched towards him spilling out of a ridiculous harem girl costume.
He knew at that moment she would be so much more. His problem was convincing her to give him a chance to prove they could work.

This was a really sweet, sexy story with funny quips and cute dialog with the characters. There was a sensuousness to the plot that was breathtaking and kept it a real page-turner.
I’m always looking for a new author and this one will definitely be on my head’s up list. Ms. Scott has captured the essence of the romance novel perfectly! I like her style, I like her characters and I love her romance!
I can’t wait for her next book!
