From International Bestselling Author, D. D. Scott, comes a brand new Christmas novella — Book 2 in her 5-Star-Rated new series, The Royal Heirs.

Everyone needs a little Christmas. But try convincing a stodgy royal family — and their even stodgier staff — of that!

Stella Anastas, Kristianico's new Queen, thought her inner circle was small before becoming Queen. Now, instead of a circle, it looks like a dot. She has four people in her daily life that she can count on, no matter what. To be accurate, two people and two dogs. Her wonderful husband, King Adonis, and their two dogs — Wyatt, a very ornery Portuguese Water Dog, and his new playmate Gypsy, the Chiweenie, who's convinced she's a human and not a dog and should be treated accordingly — and her best friend, Sophia Fordham, who owns Wet Noses, Kristianico's premier holistic doggie grooming salon and boutique.

To make matters worse, it's Stella's first Christmas in Kristianico and her first Christmas as Queen. If she's going to haul out the holly and put up the palace trees before her spirit falls again, she's got to find a way to convince her staff that they need a little Christmas before the biggest scrooge of all — Meredith, the Queen Mother — has everyone crying in their eggnog.

Luckily, Stella has an idea. A brilliant idea. She's about to become one of those people who not only rescues dogs but who has the "Who Rescued Who" bumper sticker to prove it. On second thought, can she put a bumper sticker on her royal Range Rover? The palace would probably frown on that. Even more reason to go for the gusto!

Fall in love with King and Queen Adonis of the small, French Riviera seaside country of Kristianico and their far-from-perfect family.

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS RESCUE is a 45,000-word contemporary Christmas novella (about 150 pages) that's Book Two of the new series, The Royal Heirs.
