A jewel of an island with great weather and no income tax, Santa Teresa is heaven for some. For its near-absolute ruler, Prince Bertrand, it’s hell. Bertie gave up his career, his freedom and the love of his life to take the throne after his father’s sudden death. Heartbroken and resentful, he’s resolved to abdicate. But it’s not so easy to quit when you’re born and bred for the job.
Jennie McTavish is an ordinary woman with an extraordinary talent. A chippy Fife lass with a taste for revolution, she’s blazing a trail as the first female, civilian rider at Santa Teresa’s prestigious cavalry school. In the face of hostility, mistrust and isolation, she’s staying strong… but only just.
When Bertie meets Jennie, Santa Teresa will never be the same again.
