The Last Prince

Genre

YA, contemporary, (anti-)romance

Cover Blurb

The quiet suburbs of Omaha, Nebraska is the last place Julie expected to find a real honest-to-goodness Prince, in the form of longtime neighbor and friend, Ricky. When tragedy strikes the Kingdom of Lorraine, Ricky is forced to move back to Europe. He decides ask the only friend he completely trusts, Julie, to accompany him. Romance...does not ensue. Instead, the pair have to contend with Ricky's dysfunctional family, disgruntled subjects suffering a recession, and of course, the suffocating media attention. Julie and Ricky find themselves to be the target of not just paparazzo, but assassins as well.
