Royal Heir opens with a dramatic assassination attempt, which sets up the plot for the rest of the book. Princess Cassandra needs to go into hiding in Meridia until they find the people who want to kill her. Levi Marin a CIA agent is tasked with her security. The two fall in love while they try to find the culprit behind her assassination attempt before he strikes again.
I loved the setting of this book. I love how the characters took frequent trips to the seaside and took in a view of the ocean. It was like taking a vicarious vacation. I found some of the historical background details that the plot rested on a little too convoluted to be believable, but it’s fiction so I went along with it. I liked that the novel had a strong intelligence thread. The main characters collected clues and information more then they had gunfights. I also enjoyed reading about a royal falling in love with a commoner under unusual circumstances. It made for a different sort of love story and that was fun.
I am grateful that Covenant gave me the chance to review this romantic suspense. It’s fourth in Abramson’s Royal Series, which kicks off with Royal Target.
