Royally Lost ~ Teaser #2

Four weeks and counting for the release of Royally Lost. I’m so excited for everyone to get a chance to read it! Here’s a short peek of Becca learning Nikolai’s true identity.

“So how was your date with Nikolai?”

Becca glared at her brother, Dylan.

“Uh-oh. Did he stand you up?” Dylan held a rolled-up magazine.

She frowned, frustrated that she’d been so easily played. “Yeah, you could say that.”

“This might explain why.” Dylan held the magazine under her face, forcing her to look at the glossy picture of a guy who looked exactly like Nikolai.

She took the magazine and examined it closer. Her breath caught in her throat. “That’s Nikolai!”

She’d recognize him anywhere. She couldn’t read the foreign headline, but it ended with an exclamation point. “Dylan, where did you find this?”

He grimaced and shrugged. “It was at every newspaper stand I saw today.”

“Why is he on the cover? Did he do something wrong?” She paged through the magazine, holding her breath. Confusion turned to shock when she saw a two-page spread filled with pictures of Nikolai.

Nikolai at the beach; a picture of him playing polo; a picture of him in a tuxedo with a girl wearing a glittering gown. Then Becca’s eyes landed on a formal picture of Nikolai in uniform, with a sword at his belt, standing next to a young girl. A stern man and austere woman sat in gilded chairs; both adults wore crowns.

Her jaw dropped open.

“Why is Nikolai in that picture with people wearing crowns? Who is he?” she asked. Her heart pumped so fast she could feel the blood pulse through her temples. “And why did he lie about his identity?”


Royally Lost available May 6th.

Royally Lost ~ It’s Teaser Time!

Royally Lost releases in five weeks. Here is a short teaser of Prince Nikolai and Becca meeting on the streets of Vienna.

“So, what are you doing here in Vienna?” Becca asked.

Nikolai slid his hands in his pockets as they walked; there was suddenly a lightness in his step. “I’m on sort of a holiday.” The last two days had been so relaxing. No scheduled appearances, no royal advisors, and no cameras.

“Sort of a holiday? What does that mean?”

“Well,” he sighed, trying to decide how to explain it without actually telling her. “Long story short, I took off without my parents’ permission.”

“Really? I wish I had the guts to do that.”

“I don’t recommend it. There’ll be hell to pay when they catch up with me.”

“Your parents don’t know where you are?” Becca brushed a lock of silky hair behind her ear, revealing her sun-kissed cheek.

“Not yet. I figure they’re giving me a couple days of freedom before they try to track me down and order me home, but that’s not going to happen.” At least he hoped they hadn’t already sent a palace security detail after him.

Becca laughed. “No? Why is that?”

“Because I’m living off the grid, you know, like Jason Bourne.”

“Are you telling me you’re an international spy or, oh no, an assassin?” She feigned a shocked expression.

“Hardly. I’m just another derelict kid avoiding family responsibilities and disappointing my parents.”

He wondered what she’d think if he confessed he was the Prince of Mondovia and had run away like a spoiled child.

Royally Lost releases May 6th and is available for pre-order now.
