A Secret Royals Novella by Marie Long
The Secret Royals, Book 1
In celebration of her newly acquired Fine Arts degree from the University of South Carolina, Claudia Gray takes the vacation of a lifetime to the exclusive country of Bellacigna, which the media has recently deemed the newest, hottest tourist spot in Europe.
Claudia takes in the country’s beautiful scenery while also working on enhancing her job portfolio. But an accident during an evening outing brings Claudia’s celebrations to a halt, and a stranger’s selfless gesture adds a new level of flavor to her Bellacignan experience.
Stefano Trevisani, future Duke of Cittàcigni by day and the hottest Bellacignan deejay sensation by night, is swept up in the woman he saved, but realizes there is something familiar about her that he recalls from the past.
Stefano wants to get close to Claudia, but she believes their lifestyles are too different for a relationship to ever work. But the more time she spends with him, the more she begins to second-guess those feelings. Will Claudia return to her familiar, safe, and secure lifestyle back home? Or will she decide to give a relationship with Stefano a chance?
