The Reluctant Princess is a promising start to the Charm City Hearts series set in author, M.C. Vaughan’s beloved Baltimore. Laced with humor and crackling dialogue, it follows gifted artist Zara Kissette as she prepares for a major gallery show, literally rising from the ashes of a devastating fire that has destroyed many of her paintings.
Zara’s new and smoldering romance with hunky Brendan Stewart is complicated by a jealous ex-wife and young daughter. Will Zara, the reluctant princess, Ravenna, find love and career success or do the two crash and burn together? An enjoyable read for this new author. Can’t wait for #2!
