Royal Baby: His Unplanned Heir – A Prince’s Secret Baby Romance by Layla Valentine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Sasha is a wedding planner from the states who is vacationing in Italy and ends up in San Paluzzi. On one of her last days before returning home, she runs into Antonio on the beach. She immediately feels a connection with him.
Antonio, on the other hand, is quickly approaching his thirtieth birthday and has heard some troubling news from his parents (the king and queen). That’s right, he is Prince Antonio. While meeting Sasha he blurts out that he’s getting married and asks her to plan his wedding. There are numerous ups and downs, along with some disastrous moments before they can get him to the alter. Following this, Sasha eventually returns home heartbroken, but is she necessarily alone?
This a very sweet, wonderfully written book. It doesn’t follow the typical patterns of some royal books (boy and girl meet, fall in love…voila, Prince Charming found and they lived happily ever after). There are moments of reflection, true and honest soul searching, as well as emotional growth. Layla Valentine is a new to me author, but I would definitely read another book from her.

Blinded is a second chance love story that surrounds, Gabe & Alex. Their initial meeting was when Gabe was an actor just starting in the business and Alex was a college student that worked at a diner. They had an ‘insta-love’ attraction with each other from the word go.
They are soon separated, but Gabe left a little piece of him with Alex ;). After some time passed, Gabe soon realizes why he has never heard from Alex and decides to go win her back.
Now I should admit that I’m not usually a fan of second chance romance stories, because I know where the story goes (to a second chance), however Maya Hughes wrote a book that was much more than this type of story. She pulled out many emotions from her characters that inevitably pulled them out of you. Now don’t get me wrong, that there were times that I was so frustrated with Gabe and Alex that I just wanted to give them a shake to wake them up, but that is a sign of good writing!
Good job, Maya, I’m looking forward to the next in the series.
