Release day: His Majesty’s Hidden Heir

13 October 2021

Today is the official release of His Majesty’s Hidden Heir by Lucy Monroe (Princesses by Royal Decree #2) (paperback and ebook, Harlequin Presents). Here’s the blurb:

The mother of his child…

…and wearing his crown?

Prince Konstantin can’t forget Emma Carmichael, who vanished after a wedding contract forced him to end their relationship. A surprise meeting five years later shocks Konstantin—Emma has a son. Unmistakably his son.

Emma wants Konstantin in their son’s life—yet she’s wary. She’d had no choice but to walk away; his family hadn’t deemed her worthy of being his princess. But as their reunion stokes the flames of their passion, can she trust that this time their bond is strong enough to prove them all wrong?

Lucy dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

One of my favorite stories to write is when the hero needs redeeming, and Konstantine needs this in spades. In the first book of my Princess by Royal Decree miniseries, we meet Kon, a cynical, ruthless guy. But what made him that way? Why is he so harsh? Those questions are answered in His Majesty’s Hidden Heir. I’ve written lots of unanticipated pregnancies, but very few secret babies, because justifying the ‘secret’ is no easy task. However, Emma has such good reasons for disappearing from Kon’s life and, ultimately, most of them lay at his door. So, yes, here’s a hero who needs a lot of redeeming. And he’s determined to be redeemed. Kon doesn’t just want a relationship with his son, but also with Emma. And Kon is a man used to getting what he wants, whatever it takes. I love writing this kind of character and watching them shift their thinking and learn to recognise their emotions. Emma leads with her heart, but she’s got it locked away because of their past. How could I help but lose myself in the story of these two? Every scene jerked at my emotions, and that’s when I know I’m doing my job. 

You can find out more about this book at Lucy’s website or buy it from Amazon.
