No Pretender free pdf 'He was waiting for his moment to return. Every step he took closer to his country, he felt its magnetic pull. He had the strangest feeling that his fate had been predetermined, that he was being propelled towards an inevitable destiny.' 1746: A determined Charles Edward Stuart wins back the Crown of Scotland for his father with a resounding victory at Culloden. Scotland, after many years of English domination, is a free country again. 1991: Almost 250 years later, Scotland is still an independent nation and the descendants of Bonnie Prince Charlie are still on the throne. But that independence is threatened yet again by the machinations of a power-crazed Russian billionaire who plans to secure the crown for his own grandson and will stop at nothing to achieve his evil ends. Enter James Stuart, the man most Scots regard as the true heir to the throne. Cast aside at a young age by the establishment into which he was born, he has carved a comfortable new life for himself as a sports hero and all-round sex god. However, with the untimely death of the king, fate has now conspired to bring James back to the centre of Scottish political life. Considered a threat by the Russian, the popular and charismatic Prince James is forced to flee for his life. On the eve of the Coronation of the new king, James returns in a last-ditch attempt to try to free his country from the Russian's control. With a small band of devoted followers, he fights back, risking his whole future, his fortune and his life for his country. A fun, racy read, No Pretender will appeal to fans of adult and gay fiction. Kate is inspired by her favourite writers: Alan Hollinghurst, Iain Banks, Christopher Brookmyre and William Boyd.
