(From Goodreads)

The Queen of England has requested the help of the Privy Council. Someone is trying to kill her son’s fiancé. The HRH Prince plans to marry a commoner, and his bride has a secret no one knows but the Privy Council. She has a tatù. When the Privy Council turns to Rae for help, she can’t possibly say no; not even when they make Devon her partner for this assignment. They are to pose as a couple and work undercover, as bodyguards, to protect the soon to be Princess of Wales.

Rae would rather be anywhere but with Devon, especially since she believes her mother to be alive, despite the Privy Council’s assurances to the contrary. The question is, how can Rae find proof of life for her mother, come to terms with her feelings for Devon, and manage to save the Princess, all while dressed for tea?

When the enigma, the secrets and the skeletons in the closet begin to be exposed, can Rae handle the truth?

My Thoughts

Just as the previous posts on this series, you can find most of my thoughts on the writing style, my commitment to the story and the world that the author created in my post, Rae of Hope. I won’t be repeating them so you can go and read them there. The storyline was good. I knew the bad guy would be someone she trusts. I half expected it to be Maria but wasn’t sure. It could have been Curtis as well. I like how May details the fights and the surroundings, it helps me to get the picture in my head.

I was mostly kept guessing in the story and was happy when Devon confessed how he feels about her when she was half unconscious. Maybe that rock-solid professional demeanour is starting to slip. Rae is growing up and maturing nicely. She has so much internal monologue happening due to all the questions she has about her past, present and future. This means I know exactly how she feels most of the time which helps me to relate to her very well. She does tend to irritate me sometimes though, but that is normal.

The dialogue is good. You just need to keep your concentration sometimes because May doesn’t always say who’s talking when there’s a short conversation, so I have to remember who is talking in each line. Thankfully, the way they speak shows who the character is most of the time.

I enjoyed the strength of Sarah, the Princess to be. She didn’t take nonsense. I also like how protective Prince Philip was of her and that he is willing to abdicate his throne to be able to stay with her and keep her safe. Alfie was typical for a royalty security person. They fight first and ask questions later. His loyalty to her was sweet.

This is book 4 of a 12 book series. Some of the storyline is wrapped up by the end of the book but there is also still a lot unanswered. That list grows with every book.
