Summary, etc.:
"Makeda Hicks has lost her job and her girlfriend in one fell swoop. The last thing she's in the mood for is to rehash the story of her grandmother's infamous summer fling with a runaway prince from Ibarania, or the investigator from the World Federation of Monarchies tasked with searching for Ibarania's missing heir. Yet when Beznaria Chetchevaliere crashes into her life, the sleek and sexy investigator exudes exactly the kind of chaos that organized and efficient Makeda finds irresistible, even if Bez is determined to drag her into a world of royal duty Makeda wants nothing to do with. When a threat to her grandmother's livelihood pushes Makeda to agree to return to Ibarania, Bez takes her on a transatlantic adventure with a crew of lovable weirdos, a fake marriage, and one-bed hijinks on the high seas. When they finally make it to Ibarania, they realize there's more at stake than just cash and crown, and Makeda must learn what it means to fight for what she desires and not what she feels bound to by duty." -- Amazon.

    Atlantic City native Makeda Hicks feels more like a doormat than a missing princess from an ancient island kingdom. She repeatedly rebuffs the willful and attractive investigator, Beznaria Chetchevalier, who is on a mission to restore Makeda to the Ibaranian throne. Makeda's family is convinced that she is a royal descendant, but only a DNA test will prove her lineage and help solve their pressing financial problems. Forces are at work to prevent Bez from fulfilling her duty, causing her to justify lying to the woman she swore to protect, which leads to a voyage across a stormy sea via cargo ship while pretending to be married. Sadly, their romance is lost within a convoluted plot that ends too quickly with a surprise twist. Unlike her previous novels featuring long-lost African royalty, the second installment in Cole's Runaway Royals series, following How to Catch a Queen (2020), doesn't quite live up to the promise of its "queer Anastasia retelling" premise, but fans will still enjoy the world building and look forward to the series finale featuring Prince Anzam Khandrol of Druk.
