I need a baby. And a husband. And I need them…well, yesterday!
Between you and me, I don’t really want either. But to prevent my jerk of a cousin from running my country into the ground, it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
My father is dying. And since I committed the grave sin of being born a girl, my horrible male cousin is next in line to inherit the throne. Thankfully, I found a loophole. A woman can rule as regent if she’s the mother of a male heir.
Now, I just need to find someone as desperate as I am.
Then my eyes fall on Zachary Raybourn. Hot. Strong. Silent. And one of the few people in my entourage I trust to be on my side, not my cousin’s. He’s a Navy SEAL who’s been tasked with protecting me while we’re in the U.S.
I need a husband and a baby. And Zachary is desperate to get back to his unit. So, I offer him a deal—an early Christmas present to each other. Marry me, get me pregnant, and he’s free.
But I wonder. When the time comes, will I want my baby daddy to go?
