In Pursuit of a Princess by Lenora Worth

Book Description:

A PICTURE-PERFECT CRIME Princess Lara Kincade returned home to New Orleans to continue her late husband's humanitarian work. She also hopes to force his killer out of hiding. But a priceless painting has put her plans—and life—at risk. Embroiled in a deadly art scandal, Lara must depend on handsome photojournalist Gabriel Murdock to help her expose a murderer. Gabriel's determination to keep her safe has softened her heart to love's possibilities again. Somewhere among his photos lies the identity of the murderer, but can they uncover the killer before this heist turns deadly?

My Thoughts:
This was a pretty good book.  Princess Lara has agreed to have a photographer/reporter follow her while she is home in New Orleans.  Gabriel Murdock is there for a 'fluff' piece on the princess.  She is home to continue her late husband's work but there is more to it than that and he wants to know all of it.  His instincts lead him and he agrees to help Lara with her plot to find answers.  Problem is, there is someone who wants to see her dead and all her security doesn't deter them in the least!
I liked Gabriel.  He was strong and dependable.  He had some past issues to deal with but he was focused on keeping Lara safe no matter what.  Lara, honestly I got annoyed with, but I did like her.  She wanted to find answers and didn't care if she got hurt in the process.  She did some really stupid things but all of it were possible considering the situation.  The support characters were interesting.  I liked Lara's head of security but never trusted the assistant!  The plot was good and the romance was a slow build with plenty of suspense thrown in. 
I rate this a 4/5.  It was a solid quick read.
