A Princess for the Playboy

The Princess of Surhaadi is desperate to escape a life lived in the shadows of her family's past. One misguided night of rebellion later and Leila's world comes crashing down thanks to two little blue lines on the pregnancy test!

When James Chatsfield—world-renowned bad boy and soon-to-be father —hears the shocking news, he knows he needs to act, and fast! He'll propose to protect his heir, but will Leila ever believe he sees her as more than just the mother of his child?

Welcome to The Chatsfield, New York!
This series is such a decadent read for me.  It's full of glamour and riches and all sorts of fanciness.  We briefly heard about Leila's "problems" in the previous book and now we get to see them first hand.  Leila is a Princess, one used to ordering servants about and having everything taken care of for her.  So when she runs away to America, she's in for some serious culture shock.

I loved her culture shock.  So many little things that we, as Americans, just go about doing because we always have - well, when seen from an outside point of view - don't seem so natural and obvious.  In some ways, Leila was a breathe of fresh air.

James certainly sees her this way, at first.  Then he has to find out via newspaper that he's going to be a father.  Well, let's just say that all hell breaks loose in his life.  Their's is far from a traditional romance in any sense, but that's what makes it so special.  They not only have to get to know each other, but each other's culture and ways of doing things.  I was so excited for both of them every time they made a small step in the right direction.
