Sweet Denial – Lizabeth Scott

Ella fell hopelessly in love with Prince Zahir and she thought he felt the same way, only to have her heart crushed when she found him in the arms of another woman. Too young and inexperienced to deal rejection she ran and kept running for years. Ella became an expert at avoiding the prince until circumstances brought them back together, and Ella couldn’t run any longer.

Zahir made the decision to send Ella away for her own good. He spent years secretly watching over her until he thought she was ready for what he had to offer. However, Ella refused to cooperate with his well-laid plans. His little butterfly had grown into a strong and beautiful yet aggravating woman who wanted nothing more to do with him.

But Zahir was up for the challenge. Ella would be his.

While this book is part of a series it can be read as a standalone. But why would you do that? It’s a bunch more fun to read about all the royal SuMartra princes.
