Peek Inside The Prince's Runaway Lover

Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton was never supposed to be ruler of Callanos...until his brother died. Now Nick is to be coronated king, and no one believes he's ready. And the best way to secure his crown is to do the unthinkable—find a queen. While Isabel Castillo works in the palace gardens, she has no desire to draw the attention of the way-too-flirty, would-be king. The promise of love would only end in disaster. Because while Isabel may be able to catch a king, her secrets would only destroy him...

He’s hot, irresistible…and he will always make sure you’re satisfied.

Crown Prince Nicholas Lytton was never supposed to be ruler of Callanos. He was the “spare to the heir,” pursuing a decadent life of the rich and royal—extreme sports, physical pleasures, and glorious irresponsibility. Until his brother died. Now Nick is to be coronated king, and no one believes he’s ready.

The best way to secure his crown is to do the unthinkable…find a queen.

While Isabel Reynolds works in the palace gardens, she has no desire to draw the attention of the way-too-flirty, would-be king. For she’s not the woman everyone thinks she is. Even if she wanted—or was tempted by—the promise of love, it would only end in disaster. Because while Isabel may be able to catch a king, her secrets would only destroy him…


"I absolutely loved this story. It's so much more than just a simple Cinderella story or a poor girl falling in love with a storybook prince." -- Night Owl Reviews Top Pick!

"For two people who didn’t think happily ever after was in the cards for them it was wonderful to see that sometimes the “good guys” do win and that despite years and years of old school ways progress is possible especially when two people are willing to love and support each other with all their hearts. Well done Ms. Covington this book left me with a happy heart and a great big smile on my face!" -- Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

"What a good read The Prince's Runaway Lover turned out to be, loved it." -- Irene, Goodreads

"The story is emotionally charged and magical and you feel it while you read it. Their chemistry jumped of the pages and their banter was a delight to read! You won't want to put the story down once you start so be sure to carve out a few hours for yourself ;)" -- Jessica Alcazar, Goodreads

4 - "Happily ever after sounds really good to me." Stars!

With each book I read by this author, I become a bigger and bigger fan of her work. I think you can tell from the title that The Princes Runaway Lover offers up one thing mainly, and that is –

Pure. Reading. Escapism.

Now this book is one of the many reasons why I love Robin Covingtons writing and why I love this Men of the Zodiac series. I am a royalist and I love Cinderella, so I jumped right on this book as soon as I read the synopsis. I love a good fairytale, one that you can sink your teeth into and just pre ...more

This story was a refreshing change of pace for me, and something a little out of my reading comfort zone. I normally steer clear of stories involving royalty, and have struggled in the past to find interest in stories of this nature, but I'm happy to say I'm glad I veered off course and gave this st ...more

Super fun read, much like the rest of the series so far.

Here we have Nick, the Prince and Isabel the gardener. I gotta say, it’s not easy to be with a prince and accept very unwanted attention. The story showed really well Isabel’s reluctance towards that aspect, but still feeling very a ...more
