It was his pheromones that did it. With one sniff, sex researcher Leigh
Fromm recognizes that any offspring she might have with the mysterious
stranger would have a better-than-average chance of surviving any number
of impending pandemics.
But when Leigh finds out that the
handsome “someone” at her great aunt’s wake is Prince Roman Habsburg von
Lorraine of Austria, she suddenly doubts her instincts—not that she was
intending to sleep with the guy. The royal house of Habsburg was once
completely inbred, insanity and impotency among the highlights of their
genetic pedigree. (The extreme “bulldog underbite” that plagued them
wasn’t called the Habsburg Jaw for nothing.)
It doesn’t matter
that his family hasn’t sat on a throne (other than the ones in their
Toilette) since 1918, or that Austria is now a parliamentary democracy.
Their lives couldn’t be more different: Roman is routinely mobbed by
paparazzi in Europe. Leigh is regularly mocked for having the social
skills of a potted plant. Even if she suddenly developed grace, charm
and a pedigree that would withstand the scrutiny of the press and his
family, what exactly is she supposed to do with this would-have-been
king of Austria who is in self-imposed exile in Denver, Colorado?
