In Texas Brady Talmadge has five rules of life.  His fifth rule is never to pick up a hitchhiker as his skull can testify from when he did and ended up pistil whipped and out $1300 plus expenses for four days at a hospital.  So he chastises himself when he breaks rule # 5 and gives a ride to cold and wet Annie Coste and her BFF Lady Astor.

 

As he takes her to Jubilee, Texas, he breaks rule # 4 “Avoid damsels in distress” as he finds he likes his companion and one kiss later adhering to rule # 2 “Always trust your gut” and breaking rule # 1 “Never tell a lie” he believes she reciprocates.  However, she has a secret that prevents them from forming a relationship as Annie is Princess Annabella Farrington of the tiniest European country Monesta on the lam from an arraigned political marriage to much older Prince Theodore Forsythe of the second smallest nation on the continent Dubinstein.  The royal violates rules # 1 and # 3 “Never order chili at a truck stop.”

 

The latest Jubilee romance (see The Cowboy Takes a Bride) is an amusing madcap tale mindful of Roman Holiday (starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn) but in a modern day version of a 1930s zany comedy.  Though the storyline is thin, readers will laugh out loud as the European princess and the Texas horse whisperer shatter his five rules.
