This is book number 3 in the Royals of Cordina series.
The Royal Rake. The Playboy Prince. Ever the ladies' man, Prince Bennett of Cordina has always happily lived up to his public reputation with an element of recklessness. When a distant relative, Lady Hannah Rothchild, arrives in Cordina as a hired companion to his sister, Bennett couldn't be less interested in his modest, academic cousin. Still, he sees something of a challenge in this lovely stranger. With Christmas approaching, Bennett and Hannah are drawn together and, try as they might, the two cannot ignore the attraction growing between them. But Hannah has a secret, and the Cordina palace is not as safe as it once was. She must retain her privacy to protect herself...and Bennett. Even if Bennett is finally willing to risk his heart, their love couldn't be anything more than a fleeting Christmas romance...could it? Previously published.
