While journeying home from Scotland, Princess Mercedes of Alden’s coach is set upon and her personal guard killed. Barely escaping with her life, she seeks help at a nearby inn. But with no money and looking little better than a beggar, the townsfolk think her claims of being a princess to be nothing more than a far-fetched tale. Utterly forsaken, Mercedes wonders what is to become of her.
After years of soldiering, dispossessed Laird Daniel MacKinnon is finally coming home. At an inn he is confronted by a bedraggled young woman claiming to be of royal blood. Daniel doesn’t believe her wild tale, but when she asks for his protection, he agrees to serve as her bodyguard - in turn she promises to reward him handsomely once they reach London. But Mercedes is still being pursued by ruthless hunters whose motives remain unclear.
As the danger increases, so does the desire she and Daniel feel for each other, until the two of them must face the greatest danger of all - falling in love.

SAT/NAV NOT NEEDED ON THIS ROMANTIC ROADTRIP ROMP
Firstly, Ooops I listened to this book before book 1 but I guess it didn't matter much and shows it could easily be a stand alone listen.
Princess Mercedes gets carriage-jacked and flees to a local Inn where she is rescued by Highland Hunk Daniel and, although he doesn't believe her claims, agrees to escort her to London. A sweet and touching romance grows between them and, as they journey on, several disasters befall them which only goes to strengthen their bonds - that is until they reach London.
Good likeable characters (especially kind and protective Daniel), tender feelings ignite as the romance builds but it's threatened not only by the villains who are hot on their trail....... but by themselves as well.
Worth a credit? Yes, and I'm off to listen to book one.

Really, Really Like
The best part of this second book is the plot. Unlike other so many other romance plots where where the woman or the man is certain and other not each trying to figure it out. Both Mercedes and Daniel are in this drama together from the start. Mercedes is pursued all the way from Scotland to London and this is the tale of crime, protection and delight. There is a series of scenes in this novel which are simply feel good scenes done well and give light to the book. Warren does as fantastic job in weaving in descriptions this time. It was a far better job than in the first novel.
I am completely used to Justine Eyre's narration and she turns in another great performance. Warren even sprinkled in a bit of Scottish history. I'm going to read book three next hoping it is as good as this one. I give this one a rousing thumbs up.
