Three intrepid princesses find themselves targets in a deadly plot against the crown--until their uncle devises a brilliant plan to keep them safe...
Of all her sisters, Princess Stefanie is by far the least amenable to law and order, which is why she's appalled to find herself masquerading as an unbearably drab clerk for the most honorable barrister in England. But her dull disguise turns out to have its privileges: namely, the opportunity to consort unchaperoned with her employer's exceedingly handsome nephew, James Lambert, the Marquess of Hatherfield.
Hatherfield quickly realizes that his uncle's spirited new clerk is, in fact, a lovely young woman of daring habits. The outwardly impeccable marquis isn't about to reveal her deception. After all, he's hiding a dangerous secret of his own. But when one too many escapades with the madcap princess bring Hatherfield's troubled past to light, it is only Stefanie's sharp wits that stand between the marquis and utter disaster, and only Hatherfield's daring that can save the princess from the shadowy agents bent on finding her.

Gray mixes things up in her sequel to How to Tame Your Duke: James Lambert, the Marquess of Hatherfield, and Princess Stephanie Victoria Augusta are already a couple in the prologue, in which he is being arraigned for his stepmother’s murder. The narrative bounces back and forth between two timelines—the couple meeting and falling in love, and the progress of the trial—until both come together near the end. Terrific leads are unfortunately hindered by a heap of clichés. The princess disguises herself as a young man to evade assassins, even taking the obligatory awkward trip to a brothel. Another woman is in love with Hatherfield, who is pushed to marry her to satisfy his estranged father’s debts. On the plus side, Hatherfield is aware that “Mr. Thomas” is a woman from the start, and the devastating secret he hides is authentically rendered. (Jan.)
