Royal Target by Traci Hunter Abramson. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

CIA Agent, Janessa Rogers, has had many assignments. She uses her language skills to protect the people under her watch and protection. After meeting Prince Garrett Fortier on one assignment, she doesn't expect her next one to involve her playing the part of his fiance as part of a plan to protect his family. Janessa is confused as pretend feelings are replaced by genuine ones and complications with his family, her spirituality, and her job arise.

This is a very fun book! It reminds me a lot of the movie "The Princess Diaries". It's a romantic fairytale, a book every girl that has ever dreamed of becoming a princess should read. I thought it portrayed a heroine who was classy, an example of her convictions and has high self esteem, in spite of the fact that her life hasn't turned out exactly as she planned. A great book for twelve year olds and up.
