Description

A spoiled yet struggling princess gets a dose of romance in this tongue-in-cheek sequel to The Royal Treatment, from the New York Times–bestselling author. The Kingdom of Alaska—majestic, wild, and definitely still part of Russia—has a problem. Princess Alexandria's acid wit has turned even more biting after a bad case of insomnia has kept her from getting any royal rest. Enter marine biologist Dr. Shel "Never Sheldon" Rivers, called on by his boss to help the regal cranky pants get forty winks so that she'll be receptive to his ardent wooing. Dr. Rivers wants nothing more than to be alone. In his lab. All the time. And now he's stuck waiting on a spoiled princess hand and foot: escorting her around the marine institute, explaining his experiments, kissing her until her royal toes curl . . . Well, okay, that part wasn't exactly planned. Still, Dr. Rivers might have some new ideas on how to finally get the fantastic, exasperating woman some well-deserved shut-eye. Ideas that involve getting her very, very tired after some extracurricular activities . . . In this delightfully madcap sequel to The Royal Treatment, the Baranov family will learn a few lessons about love as a prickly princess and peevish PhD discover that sometimes attraction is the best medicine.

shortDescription
In a world nearly identical to ours, the North won the Civil War, Ben and JLo got married, and everyone dresses well to attend the Grammys. Oh, and Russia never sold Alaska to the U.S. Instead, Alaska is a rough, beautiful country ruled by a famously eccentric royal family, including oldest daughter, Princess Alexandria, whose acid wit and bad case of insomnia have turned her into a tabloid darling, a palace problem, and overall. . .

The Royal Pain

Marine biologist Dr. Shel ("Never Sheldon") Rivers has a problem. Some princess expects him to wait on her, hand and dimpled foot. His boss is taken with the royal redhead--brunette, whatever, it's not like he keeps track of that stuff--and nobody realizes that he just wants to be left alone in his lab. All alone. All the time. Weekends, holidays. . .it's all good.

Now here's Miss Royalpants, insisting that he escort her around the marine institute, explain what he's doing, kiss her until her toes...

fullDescription

A spoiled yet struggling princess gets a dose of romance in this tongue-in-cheek sequel to The Royal Treatment, from the New York Times–bestselling author.

The Kingdom of Alaska—majestic, wild, and definitely still part of Russia—has a problem. Princess Alexandria's acid wit has turned even more biting after a bad case of insomnia has kept her from getting any royal rest. Enter marine biologist Dr. Shel "Never Sheldon" Rivers, called on by his boss to help the regal cranky pants get forty winks so that she'll be receptive to his ardent wooing.

Dr. Rivers wants nothing more than to be alone. In his lab. All the time. And now he's stuck waiting on a spoiled princess hand and foot: escorting her around the marine institute, explaining his experiments, kissing her until her royal toes curl . . . Well, okay, that part wasn't exactly planned. Still, Dr. Rivers might have some new ideas on how to finally get the fantastic, exasperating woman some well-deserved shut-eye. Ideas that involve getting her very, very tired after some extracurricular activities . . .

In this delightfully madcap sequel to The Royal Treatment, the Baranov family will learn a few lessons about love as a prickly princess and peevish PhD discover that sometimes attraction is the best medicine.
