From New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins, the lively and sizzling second book in a new fairytale-based Scottish historical romance series, The Princes of Oxenburg. Max Romanovin, Oxenburg’s warrior prince, is escorting his grandmother to a house party deep in the Highlands when he and his entourage are robbed at sword point by a group of ruffians led by a man the locals have dubbed “The Scottish Robin Hood.” The battle-savvy prince instantly realizes there’s something different about this thief, and it’s not just the Scottish accent—it’s the fact that “he” is really a “she.” Lady Murian, a young widow out for revenge against the powerful earl who killed her husband and stole his birthright, is now living in the woods with her family’s banished retainers. To stay alive, she and her band of men rob rich nobles coming to visit the evil earl. But when she ambushes the Prince of Oxenburg’s golden coach, she gets far more than she expected. For when the prince uncovers her true identity, she’s afraid that he might be the real thief…of her heart.

Sizzling Scottish romance abounds in this e-novella in the Princes of Oxenburg series, a Cinderella spinoff to New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins’s delightful Duchess Diaries series. A princess once bejeweled but now tattered… Royal princess Tatiana Romanovin is the beautiful, wealthy, and spoiled favorite of the King of Oxenburg. On her way to her cousin’s wedding in the Scottish highlands, Tatiana’s carriage is involved in an accident and, wounded, she is separated from her servants and possessions. Tatiana soon finds herself alone in an inn with no servants, no funds, and no proof of her identity. Destitute, she accepts the offer from a sympathetic (but unbelieving) innkeeper to work for her room and board while she waits for an answer to the missive she’s sent to her cousin Prince Nikolai. With no other recourse, Tatiana scrubs floors and washes dirty linens, waiting for her prince to come… A proud lord once lost and now found… After a brutal, bloody battle with the French Navy left Lord Buchan limping and surly, and abandoned by his betrothed because of his injuries, his lordship hides away at his manor house in the countryside. He leaves only once a week to eat at the local inn, drawn by the expert cooking of the innkeeper’s wife. One day, Buchan arrives to find that the innkeeper has a new servant, a beautiful scullery maid with a queenly air and flashing green eyes that leave him breathless and increasingly aware of his lonely existence… Love may find them yet… The challenge of winning his way into Tatiana’s heavily protected heart stirs Buchan back to life…but can he and his scars—and broken heart—win a proud princess whose only goal is to leave Scotland and return to the court where she’s the crowning jewel?

Beverly Hills, 90210's Jennie Garth shares her life experiences both on screen and off in this humorous and heartwarming memoir... “Revealing myself in these pages has been at times terrifying, but also one of the most liberating experiences of my life.…” In this candid and intimate memoir, Jennie Garth explores the highs and lows of her life, both in front of the camera and behind closed doors, revealing the joys and sorrows, successes and failures that have made her one unforgettable Hollywood blonde. From her rise to fame as a golden-haired teen beauty, to redefining herself as a single working mother, Jennie Garth has defied the odds and thrived in a town that can be more than a little tough on its blondes. Since Jennie landed in Hollywood at just sixteen, she has built an enduring career as a television and film actress, producer, and director, beginning with her iconic turn as Kelly Taylor on Aaron Spelling’s smash hit Beverly Hills, 90210, a show that ran for a decade and that cemented Jennie’s place in American pop culture. Recently, Jennie found herself facing her forties from a place she never expected to be in: newly single, in demand again as an actress after years spent focusing on her family, and all over the tabloids. With candor and a bawdy sense of humor, this is the real Jennie Garth—smart, funny, and stronger than she ever realized.
