Who was your first crush? Your first love? Mine was a good friend who I knew since I was a toddler. He's been a friend throughout my life. He'd passed a few years ago and while I often wondered how things would have been, we both knew it wasn't meant to be more than a close friendship. And we were grateful for that.
Kristine Lynn's latest release-A BRIDE FOR THE ALDONIAN KING, featured a star-crossed pair. Lorelai had always loved King Robert but he'd been older and too focused on his future to take more than a passing glance at her. Now she's returned to the royal stables to become the first female Royal Huntsman. And she's come face to face with Robert, now King. Only he doesn't really recognize her.
Lorelai is back home to take over her late father’s management of the royal stables. Heartbroken over the loss of her father and determined to become the first female Royal Huntswoman, the last thing she needs is to run into the subject of her schoolgirl fantasies—the current King of Aldonia. When Lorelai is forced to work with King Robert, she discovers two facts that may just reignite her old flame for him: he’s a terrific single father, and he’s not the spoiled, rich brat she remembers from her youth.
King Robert knows his past didn’t paint him in a good light—he was spoiled, stubborn, and a lothario who took no prisoners where love was concerned. But he’s changed—the horrific loss of his parents and a messy divorce made sure of that. So, when a mysterious new hire for his royal stables shows up with a grudge for injustices he can’t recall, he is determined to make things right with her. On the way to winning her over, though, he finds himself falling head over heels in love, despite making a solemn promise to himself to never go down that road again.
Will they find their way through their separate hurts to allow themselves a second chance at love? Or is too late?

One part of her, and she wasn’t sure which was more dominant, had wanted to leave, become more worldly for him, while the other part of her loathed him. In her youthful lust and inexperience, she recalled with vivid clarity which had won out. A year later and she was headed for America, desperate to make a name for herself. She could tell herself it had nothing to do with her teenage crush, but she’d be lying if every accolade, every award she earned, she didn’t picture showing to Robert. To make matters infinitely worse, those were the last years Lorelai would have had with her father—she just hadn’t known it then. She didn’t blame Robert for that, just herself for being unbearably weak when it came to him. She’d loved him enough to forsake everything else in her life at one point, and it had cost her that—everything.
Now, each cell in her body recalled what it was like to loathe him, and she was careful to only allow that emotion to surface. Anything else would break her again. She wouldn’t survive it a second time, not after what it had taken to rebuild her life. Herself.
“I didn’t catch your name.”
“No, you didn’t. I’m busy though, so if you could grab your daughter and let me get back to work, I’d appreciate it.” She didn’t mean the words to come out as a command, but Jesus, did he have a way of drawing the worst out of her. Just like before, though, she’d use that to drive herself to be better. Stronger without him or the insatiable need she had for his approval.
