1768, Philippines

2 - The Last PrincessSpanish Captain Raúl Calderón has accepted a daring mission in the Philippine colonies – to negotiate docking rights in hostile waters for the Manila Galleon. If successful, he can return from exile to be with those he loves. But when he is captured by slave raiders and delivered to the Last Princess, a woman known for killing those who cross her, he is thrust into the center of royal intrigue. The Last Princess is not what she seems, however, and Raúl must stay alive long enough to warn her of the danger in trusting those close to her.

Juliza Alimuddin, The Last Princess, hides behind a cutthroat reputation to protect her beloved islands. But when a mysterious Spaniard, Raúl Calderón, falls into her hands, she decides to go against her allies’ wishes and nurse him back to health. Her heart has been bruised in the past, yet Raúl brings out feelings she never thought she’d have again. Just when Juliza starts to believe in the possibility of love, however, she is betrayed and her family and sultanate put in a deadly situation. Will The Last Princess live up to her reputation when forced to choose between her people and the man she loves?

This is book 2 of a series, but can be read as a standalone.

Snippet:

Raúl had never felt more alone. Suddenly, he saw his life ahead of him in this colony, full of nights like this where he was among people but without anyone caring if he stepped off the harbor into the ocean. He wondered if he would fit in. When he had left Spain, he had been running from heartache. He had been running from pain. But if he thought he could find its antidote here, among the pretty little ladies who beckoned at him with their eyes and lips from the doorways of the thinly-veiled brothels on this Philippine street, he felt hopeless. Each of the ladies’ faces reminded him of a beauty at home. A beauty who had repudiated him for worldly and political ambition.
