Inspiration and Setting

Did I ever mention that I visited over hundred countries? I stopped counting when I reach 100!

Whether I traveled on business trips, accompanied my husband on airplane deliveries as part of his business trips, or relaxed during vacations, or cruises, I always took extensive notes about the places I visited.

Let’s tabulate the settings in my romance novels:

GREECE
Her Greek Tycoon:  A sexy and humorous Romeo and Juliette Greek style, set in Mykonos Island.

FRANCE
Her French Count: Are his statue and chateau worth endangering the life of the impetuous young woman who’s turned his life upside down
Right Name, Wrong Man: What’s a girl to do when she whispers another man’s name in her fiancé’s arms?
Mother’s Day Babies: Never too late to find love and happiness.
Christmas Papa: Who’s my Papa, Mommy?

And now, my most recent novel, set in France and Rensy Island—Rensy Island is inspired by Guernsey Island in the Channel:
A Bride for Prince Paul on Kindle Scout: She can’t abandon her patients for his crown!

BELARUS

A Bride for Prince Paul (Modern Princes Series Book 1) by MONA RISK

She can’t abandon her patients for his crown!

To please his dying grandfather and protect his country’s autonomy, Prince Paul of Rensy Island must marry an American doctor, descendant of a Rensian princess. Paul, a confirmed bachelor, agrees to meet Amy incognito during her vacation in Paris. Although her career and ex-boyfriend are major interferences, attraction sizzles between Amy and her ‘driver’, but the rumor of her engagement to ‘Prince’ Paul outrages her. Can he convince her that he loves her, in spite of his lies by omission?

I wrote this story while cruising the British Isles. The setting of the book was inspired by the quaint Guernsey island, an island in the Channels.

Imagine if Kate Middleton (Dr. Amy in my story) were an American doctor, dedicated to her career and her patients. What if Prince William (Prince Paul in my story) wanted to make sure his future wife will love him for himself and not for his crown?
What if he decided to play her driver and guide in Paris to get to know her better?
What if their attraction turns into passionate love?
What if the paparazzi haunt them at every turn? What if the tabloid magazines spoil everything? What if…what if…what if…
