Do you have numbers on the Foreman deal?  BTW: I may have met the one.  She’s beautiful but seems unaware.  Though she has a famous news correspondent for a father and politician for a mother, Gillian is herself unassuming with an unexpected flair for political and personal diplomacy.  I’ll have to treat this woman differently.  She could one day be my queen.

princedem: Very funny.  Sending the Foreman #s.
princemaks: No joke.
[Pause between texts.]
princedem: When do I  meet her?
princemaks: Soon.
princedem: What is her last name?
princemaks: Harris.
princedem: So a deep level 411 on this one?
princemaks: There won’t be any surprises in her background.
princedem: It’s my job to make sure.
princemaks: You protect the throne.
princedem: That’s what older cousins are for.
princemaks: Brother.
[Pause between texts.]
princedem: Email me her parents’ names and her address.

From:  prince.maksim@yurkovichtan…
To:  prince.demyan@yurkovichtan…

Celibacy sucks.

princedem: Your own fault.
princemaks: It’s necessary.
princedem: No one said you had to go without sex to get to know her.
princemaks: She’s different.
princedem: Clearly.
princemaks: You know what I mean.
princedem: No.  I don’t.

From:  prince.demyan@yurkovichtan…
To:  prince.maksim@yurkovichtan…

Your parents approve.  When are you popping the question?

princemaks: After the fertility test results come back.
princedem: Still a little shocked she cooperated with that.
[Pause between texts.]
princemaks: I didn’t tell her.
princedem: About the test?  But she signed the release.
princemaks: She trusts me.
princedem: Or she wants to be a princess.
princemaks: She’s not like that.

princedem: Good luck tonight.
princemaks: Thx.

princemaks: It’s done.
princedem: You broke it off?
princemaks: Yes.
princedem: It’s a good thing you two didn’t have sex.  You were right about that.
[Pause between texts.]
princedem: Oh, hell no.  Tell me you didn’t.
princemaks: I need a drink.

 About One Night Heir:

Only a royal wedding…

Bitter life lessons have taught Crown Prince Maksim Yurkovich that duty must come before desire. His country needs an heir, so when he discovers his lover can’t have children, he must sever their ties. Only Maks can’t resist spending one last night in her bed.

…can avert this royal scandal!

Now he faces the biggest diplomatic crisis of his life. Against all odds, Gillian Harris has become pregnant. Maks’s royal reserve masks the heart of a fierce Cossack warrior—one who is not above using their mutual passion to convince a hurt, wary Gillian that she must be his queen!
