Modern Princes Series Book 3

Author: Mona Risk


The Doc and the princess... He saves lives, but she may save his heart.

Dr. Scott Pratt has done his best to forget his former girlfriend who left him to marry Prince Paul of Rensy Island. Now Amy is begging him to perform a difficult surgery on her son. Although he’d rather punch her husband, Scott agrees to operate on the toddler prince.

The lovely young woman who greets him at the airport wipes away his doubts with her sassy smile. She is Princess Charlene, the younger sister of Prince Paul. Sweet irony or rotten luck? Scott prefers not to mention anything about his first love.

Charlene doesn’t hide her attraction for Scott. He’s the Prince Charming she’s been waiting for—smart, sexy, determined, and full of tenderness. Despite a few complications, the surgery is successful and Charlene’s kisses reward Scott for a job well done. Nothing compares to the storm of passion between them.

But how can he keep her in his life when they live on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and he’s totally dedicated to his patients and Charlene to her principality? When Amy reveals a few secrets, all hell breaks loose.

Will Scott’s past catch up with his present and destroy his future?

Mona's writing experience with LOVE, CHRISTMAS - MOVIES YOU LOVE

1. What is your main objective in bundling your works with other authors?

Bundling books from various authors help these authors extend their readership. In addition, the authors bring to the table various skills and help each other. Promotion is less expensive than if you are on your own. I was probably one of the first authors to coordinate a multi-author box in 2014 with a different group of ten authors. The result surpassed our wildest dreams and the box sold thousands of copies, remaining under a rank of 50 on Amazon. Although we never reached a list it was a learning opportunity. We studied the wrongdoing and learned not to repeat the mistakes. Later I coordinated, formatted or simply participated in more that twenty-five boxes, reaching the USA Today bestselling list nine times and the New York Times bestselling list once.

2. What blogging, newsletter and social media promotions have you done to promote the LOVE, CHRISTMAS collection?

The amount of promotion done for LOVE, CHRISTMAS 2 was incredible, each of the authors doing her share. In addition to tweeting, sharing, blogging, I organized a twitter party, and with another author coordinated a two-day Facebook Event. I formatted a promotion book, Book Bite LC2, offered free on Amazon. It would take too long to list all the promotions behind this box.

3. Most authors require a large time commitment just in writing and editing a new book. Was this your first book set, a new book was required with a deadline?

I published over 25 books, mostly contemporary romances, some sweet Christmas stories as the Holiday Babies Series, some medical romance novels with high sensual tension, a few romantic suspense books, and I tried my hand at a paranormal fantasy based on the Egyptian mythology. The Christmas boxes usually require a new book. As I said before, I participated in many boxes and I’m used to their requirements.

4. When will you publish your writings outside the LOVE, CHRISTMAS collection? My contribution to Love Christmas 2 is Jingle With My Princess, book 3 of Modern Princes Series. It will be published on December 1st, 2018.

A Bodyguard For The Princess - Modern Princes Series Book 2
Chloe Devereux, the youngest sister of Prince Paul of Rensy Island, has convinced her brother to let her study at Harvard incognito. She enrolls in a graduate program and plans to enjoy a year of freedom and fun without secret service detail trailing her. But the school year starts with the gruesome murder of a young woman in Chloe’s co-ed residence.

The duplex building houses American students on scholarships and wealthy foreigners, all working hard to garner a Harvard degree and build a brilliant future: The friendly Jason Owen who invites her to play detective with him; the female roommates who gossip and eavesdrop while trying to befriend her; the smooth-talking, good-looking males who want to date Chloe and her roommate, but may have tampered with her mail; the lesbian athlete and the gorgeous model hiding from their past.

Can Chloe trust her neighbors? Some of them are not who they claim to be. But they all have one thing in common. They’re terrified of being the next victim and strive to discover the killer while going around their daily business—attending classes, lunching together and dating, and even lying to or cooperating with the detective in charge of the case.

Danger looms in every corner. Fear sizzles in the building.

Who is the murderer? Who will be the next victim?
