Have you ever had a job that you really wanted? One you dreamed about?? When I was a young wife, I dreamed of going to school to become a horse breeder. I'd searched out colleges and looked into what it'd take to find a job after graduation. Sadly I never did take that step.
The heroine in A BRIDE FOR THE ALDONIAN KING has a dream to become the first female Royal Huntsman. She'd run the stables her father had run but in order to do it, she has to face the one man she'd fallen in love with as a child... the Aldonian King. Kristine Lynn's latest release is the second book in her wildly popular Aldonia Royals series and features hunky royalty and the strong women who love them.
Lorelai is back home to take over her late father’s management of the royal stables. Heartbroken over the loss of her father and determined to become the first female Royal Huntswoman, the last thing she needs is to run into the subject of her schoolgirl fantasies—the current King of Aldonia. When Lorelai is forced to work with King Robert, she discovers two facts that may just reignite her old flame for him: he’s a terrific single father, and he’s not the spoiled, rich brat she remembers from her youth.
King Robert knows his past didn’t paint him in a good light—he was spoiled, stubborn, and a lothario who took no prisoners where love was concerned. But he’s changed—the horrific loss of his parents and a messy divorce made sure of that. So, when a mysterious new hire for his royal stables shows up with a grudge for injustices he can’t recall, he is determined to make things right with her. On the way to winning her over, though, he finds himself falling head over heels in love, despite making a solemn promise to himself to never go down that road again.
Will they find their way through their separate hurts to allow themselves a second chance at love? Or is too late?
Discover the breathtaking country of Aldonia as you root for Robert and Lorelai’s love story! For more of the Aldonian royal world (and the first installment of the Aldonia Royals series), check out An Heir for the Secret Prince.
As the owner of the voice rounded the corner, Lorelai’s breath halted in her chest. It wasn’t only the voice that was sexier, stronger, more masculine. Heck if the past ten years hadn’t done Robert, Duke of Puruse, King of Aldonia, a world of good. Wide hands sat atop hips that boasted snug jeans that left little to the imagination.
He squinted, but even in the dull light of the stable, Lorelai saw that his eyes were the same pale blue—maybe the only part of him that was remotely the same. Only the edges showed wear in the thin, almost invisible lines that flanked each eye. Darn men for only getting more good-looking with age. As if she needed another reason to despise him.
He walked toward her and Ginny, rubbing his eyes. Lorelai tried not to stare at the way the striated muscles in his arms pulsed with this simple gesture. He was all muscle, hard edges now. Christ.
When she’d known him as a teen, he’d been pudgy, adorable in his know-it-all-ness, but certainly not what one would describe as naturally handsome. Now, though, he could be the model for older men who found the gym late in life, leading to a total transformation.
He wasn’t only back—the how and why still escaped her for now—but looked better than ever. She had a few choice words brewing for her brother, who hadn’t given her so much as a warning. So much for a smooth takeover of the barn and operation. Lorelai’s mind was now firmly set on one thing, and one thing only.
She would become the huntsman and make him rue the day he treated her like a child.
