Julia Costa is an American living in Rome. She is studying for a PhD in archeology while working as a tour guide on the side. One morning Julia goes to pick up her client at the Hotel de Russie to start a tour. She assumes that a lone man sitting at a table is her customer and starts her tour. He seems a bit confused about the details but agrees join her for the day. She has no idea that she has just picked up Niccolo La Torre, Crown Prince of Lazaretto.
Niccolo La Torre is fed up with his royal family obligations. He wants to shed his rigid schedule and live a normal life in anonymity. Instead, he is chased by security and reporters. When he meets Julia, he is relieved to discover that she doesn’t know his identity. With his whereabouts unknown, he gets to spend a normal day with Julia and an attraction forms. Niccolo has no money to pay for the tour so Julia decides to hold him “hostage” until her bill is paid. It’s a fun time for both until the debt is settled.
This story was inspired by the film Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn. This is Teri Wilson’s first book in her new series and it is fun and engaging. I look forward to Book Two of the series, Royally Romanov on July 17th.
