Prince Istvan of Valtria expected to inherit his crown, not lead a death-defying chase to retrieve it. The dashing, handsome prince had always been the quiet scholar in the royal family, happier in ancient ruins than the arms of a potential princess. Until museum curator Lauryn Steler storms into his life, sets off sparks and just as quickly vanishes--along with Valtria's crown jewels!
Risking his life, the prince travels in disguise to exotic lands, as desperate to rescue Lauryn as he is to save the priceless gems. It's Lauryn, he realizes, who's reached out to him and touched him as no other woman has. She's the one who could wear the crown...if they live to recapture it!
