Royal Pursuit
by Susan Kearney


Narrowly escaping and assassin, Prince Alexander fled the Vashmiran embassy in Washington, D.C. with only the clothes on his back. But the playboy bachelor was determined to take matters into his own hands. With the help of stunning private investigator Taylor Welles, he went undercover with the icy American reluctantly posing as his adoring wife...

Taylor was cautious of every man she met, especially tall, dark and handsome ones like Alex. But something about him--his honest blue eyes, his confident grin--compelled her to believe his wild, royal story. His wicked seduction made Taylor helpless to deny him but could she dare believe she'd finally found her Prince Charming, whose very life rested in her hands...?

Susan Kearney's Bio

Susan Kearney used to light herself on fire four times a day. Now she does something really hot — she writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue.

While she hasn't performed her signature "fire" dive from a 10-meter platform in years, she started diving at age 10. By age 12, she'd won the New Jersey State Championship, and by college, she was a three-time All-American Diver.

While attending the University of Michigan, she earned a business degree that led to her diverse careers as, variously, a partner in a barter business, a real estate appraiser, a mover and renovator of houses, and a once- owner of three hair salons. Finally, in 1995, she sold her first book and became a full-time writer. She's currently plotting her way through her 30th novel.

Of all her careers, her favorite is wife and mother. She married her teenage sweetheart and lives with her husband, two children, and Boston terrier in sunny Florida. She now beats the heat not by diving into cold water, but with her new hobby — figure skating. Susan also enjoys writing science fiction, screenwriting, boating, and traveling to foreign countries.
