The Princess's Knight -- Book 17 -- Texas Brides of Pike's Run Series
Carl Dawson finds himself in a Georgia prison with only one way out -- get Madeline Talbut, the viperous ice princess, home to Pike's Run, Texas, or lose a year of his life in jail. He takes the deal and finds her playing hostess on a magnificent showboat.
Madeline Talbut has a past she'd like to forget, and she can do that while taking care of the guests on board The Princess. But, as she sails the mighty Mississippi, a newcomer infiltrates her space, shaking up her heart, awakening the desire she'd thought dormant and reminding her that the past must be dealt with.
Carl learns there is more to Madeline than he'd once thought, and she's becoming more important to him than he would have thought possible. But he must hide his identity from her, or she might not return to Texas and all the pain it holds. And, even worse, if she discovers who Carl really is, he might lose her. Forever.
