In HONKY-TONK CINDERELLA, the second installment in KAREN TEMPLETON'S How to Marry a Monarch mini-series, the death of an old friend leads to Prince Aleksander Vlastos's discovery of a son he never knew he had. . .and a reunion after more than a decade with Luanne Evans, the Texan barmaid who'd come perilously close to winnowing past the soul-weary prince's defenses. But Prince Alek now has a potentially devastating secret of his own, one he's determined to keep from the already-stressed -- and very pregnant -- Luanne, who, despite her determination to overcome her trailer-trash background, is far from comfortable living in an eighty room palace. But the more time this unlikely pair spends in each other's company, the more they find themselves wondering if there's a chance of finishing what they'd barely begun that night in Sandy Springs, Texas so long ago, for not only their son's sake, but for theirs, as well. . .or is it too late for them to overcome the damage done by years of secrets and mistakes?
