“Okay, I’ll stay.” Instead of sitting back down on his barstool at the breakfast counter, he walked over to where she stood and kept his hands at his sides. The warmth from his body penetrated her personal space, as did the rest of him.
When he started kissing her, she couldn’t remember.
His tongue danced along the seam of her lips until she parted them to allow him entrance. Warmth sprouted at the top of her head and rocketed down to her toes. His hands were pulling her hips closer to his so that their bodies created a rhythm of rocking as they explored each other’s mouths. Amelia’s hands pulled his shirt up so that she could feel the solid muscle he hid with loose t-shirts.
The Prince’s Ex
by Nadene Seiters
Amelia Radley thought she had it all when she met a man in a bar and he ended up being royalty. Their love affair was anything but boring, and yet he dumped her almost exactly a year after asking her out to their first dinner date. While the wound was deep and fresh thirty days after their separation, she picked up the morning paper only to see that the man she thought she loved had already become engaged to another woman.
Her best friend, Tina, suggests the only thing she knows would make her feel better. Amelia should start dating any man she meets that she likes so that she can get over her ex. The idea is ludicrous, and yet Amelia agrees to a date with a man she has never met before. All the while, she considers herself nothing more than the prince’s ex, a woman who could not hold the affections of every woman’s dream.
When she finds love in an unexpected place, it’s challenged by the past and the future looks rocky. Amelia’s insecurities might get in the way of her finding true love, in more ways than one.

“He’s engaged already!” The paper hit the table with an audible thump that had some of the other coffee shop patrons glancing in her direction. Acrid aromas filled the air mixed with the sweet scent of flavored syrups. She inhaled them and tried to take comfort in them.
“It’s been a month, sweetheart. You couldn’t expect him to wait forever considering he has a throne to sit on.” Amelia cupped her hands around the hot coffee cup and took a sip of the bittersweet flavor, mocha lattes were her favorite. Her friend was right. She couldn’t expect him to wait forever, but a month was outrageous.
“One month isn’t a long time.” She grumped as she thought about her one year fling with the prince. For a short time, she had almost been a celebrity in the small country he’d inherit on the island of Malaysia, and a minor one in her home city. Now people looked at Amelia with pity, or she imagined they eventually would if they ever figured out who she was.
A spark of hope blossomed. Maybe no one would notice the prince of some backwards, tiny country had been engaged, except it was currently strewn across the front page of the newspaper. That idea was out.
“Why don’t you try to marry the Prince of England then?” A woman nearby choked on her latte. Amelia shot her a disgruntled, dirty look. This coffeehouse seemed to be the hub for gossip in the city. She should know better than to bring up personal matters that were already in black and white on every tabletop.
“Tina that has to be the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard. Besides, he’s married.”
“The younger one isn’t. Prince Harry, I think.” Tina’s perfectly manicured nails clinked on her cup, and her distinct, thin eyebrow shot up into a look of incredulity. Amelia knew Prince Harry was not married, and she knew his name, too. She just didn’t want to admit there were other royals out there she could be obsessing over. Prince Simon had been hers.
“Whatever, I’m done with him, and he’s obviously done with me. It’s time to move on to more accessible, less self-centered men. I want a guy-” Amelia stopped when she saw the look of amusement on Tina’s face. She had heard the I want a guy speech a million times over the past four years they had been friends.
It was time to stop talking about finding that man and actually trying to find him. She hadn’t dated anyone since the monumental breakup a month ago, and she needed to get back in the scene. There were several ways she could do that, and none of them ideally employed Tina as the person to set her up. That woman had too many questionable men on speed dial.
As if she could read Amelia’s mind, Tina began to suggest. “I could-”
“No!” Amelia took a sip of her latte quickly and averted her gaze. She tried to amend. “I mean, I don’t want you to get too involved with my love life. It’s already messed up-” Oops, that wasn’t the correct way to save the situation either. “I don’t mean you’re going to mess it up worse! I just mean that it’s really murky water right now.” There, that was better, right?
“Right.” Tina didn’t sound convinced at all. In fact, her baby blues were starting to turn stormy. Here it came. Amelia wanted to shout for someone to get her best friend a soap box to stand on.
“I think you need to have more fun, Amelia. There are guys out there that are plenty good for the heart and soul, and then there are men who are good for the night. Maybe you need to experience a few of the latter before you start looking for the heart and soul kind.” Tina finally took a bite of her bagel and swallowed. It looked like it might be hard for her to get the cream cheese down her throat, but she would work it off in yoga class. Amelia didn’t envy Tina her exercise classes. She was just thankful she still had a metabolism that took care of the cream cheese at the age of twenty-six.
It was time for a change of subject.
“So how about I come to that class today? You still teaching it?” Immediately, Tina’s eyes returned to their normal, light color and her lips even quirked at the corners. She was actually going to smile.
“You’re not getting out of this that easy, sweetie. Finish off that coffee, come do some yoga to make yourself feel a little sexier, and then you’re going to go through my naughty list.” A woman in her mid-fifties cleared her throat nearby and tried to pay attention to her laptop in front of her. Their conversation was clearly being overheard.
“I’ll commit to the yoga, for now.” Amelia downed the rest of her still warm coffee and stuffed the last of her blueberry muffin down. Her best friend grimaced, probably because she was thinking about the calorie content of that full, fatty goodness muffin.
