Billionaire Jack Lucas isn’t happy when arrested for the kidnapping of Princess Lara of Challoner and forced to face her irate royal parents.
But not as mad as Lara when she discovers Jack has paid big money to secure her as his royal bride.
Jack woke early to the sound of a helicopter. Puzzled, he climbed from the bed leaving Lara still sleeping soundly.
Peering out of the window, he was even more astonished to hear the sound of high-powered motor boats. He pulled on his shorts and tee shirt and was about to go outside to investigate when the cottage door burst open and he faced what appeared to be a small army of SWAT police officers carrying guns all aimed at him.
“What the hell is going on?” He had hardly got the words out when a man in a suit pushed his way through the officers.
“Place your hands behind you,” he shouted, and as Jack obeyed, he roughly snapped handcuffs on him.
Jack turned to face the man. “There’s been a misunderstanding…”
“There’s no mistake. Jack Lucas, you are under arrest for the kidnapping of Her Highness, Princess Lara of Challoner.
