Dark Castle Lords
His Royal Highness, Prince Ricardo de Borbón has been keeping an eye on his nephew since arriving in Florida. When his brother passed away a year ago, he became Prince Regent to his nephew. Ricardo studied economics then transferred to art. While in Ocean Breeze, Florida, his friends invite him to a party, as well as to an art preview. He meets the lovely, Maya de Saint-Armand and finds her very pleasing to the eye. Ricardo was not really on the charts to meet anyone special, but Maya is more than what he expected. He learns she was born in Florida but has a French background. She is an author of romance books and lost her parents at eighteen in an automobile wreck. Since then she has stayed with her paternal grandmother. She is surprised to learn that Ricardo is a Prince and had not informed her. When he decides to send his nephew back to Europe, Ricardo begins spending more time with Maya. She is different from other women he has dated. Maya is intrigued with Ricardo and not only desires him, but the romance that accompanies any relationship. He on the other hand usually dates women for enjoyment. Will Maya be the one woman that allows him to place emotion into his relationship, especially when other women, from his past, begin to enter the picture? Or is this love affair just for show?
Love Match is a lovely story that brings two delightful people together as they discover the true meaning of love. Ricardo and Maya have a connection that seems to spark once they glance at each other. For a moment the reader wonders will there be more to their relationship then the direction of their eyes, along with their body expression. The way their conversation carries them, it slowly pulls the reader into something meaningful. Once again, Kate Hofman has captured the essence of a family of characters, and bonded them tightly together, while blending in present day events and situations often filled with troubled obstacles. The secondary players were a great source to the storyline, and allowed a deep-knitted liaison to be held with all concerned in this inviting read.
