Hero, lover, king — who is Juan Carlos really?
As their relationship deepens, Corinna wants to know more about Juan Carlos, the man, not the monarch. But the closer she gets, the more she sees things she doesn’t understand.
Juan Carlos became a national hero when he saved Spain’s fledgling democracy, but who was he before that? During weekends at the casita, Corinna asks the king about his troubled past, from the tragic death of his younger brother to his upbringing under the thumb of a brutal dictator — Francisco Franco. But she soon sees that those days are behind him. Now Juan Carlos is dripping in wealth, coming back from overseas trips with suitcases full of cash. Where the money goes is another question, because once the king has his hands on it, he has a talent for making it disappear.
