*New York Times bestselling author Emma Chase returns with a sweet and sexy romantic comedy.*
Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco.
It’s a big deal.
When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning.
What she isn’t…is married.
It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want.
Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.
Even Queens. Especially them.
Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.
And a sacred promise keeps him there.
To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.
Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever.
Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story.
This is theirs.
Book Review: Royally Yours by Emma Chase
This is a historical romance set in the 1950s although it reads as a contemporary romance. This is the story of Queen Lenora, the grandmother in the earlier books. This is the story how Lenora came into power and fell in love in an arranged marriage.
I will be honest this book felt easy, there wasn’t much conflict.
Lenora meets Thomas who happens to have an older brother who is traveling the world. He writes to Thomas and Lenora develops a crush on the brother. A few years later, Thomas is dying and there comes to the prodigal brother back home. Thomas arranges that Lenora should marry his brother.
Edward, the brother, readily accepts which felt unreal. This was a man who left his title to seek adventure. Why would he settle down with the Queen?
The relationship develops with ease. They take things slowly but everything happens as things it should be marriage, babies, power.
My feels: I really like this series. Book 2 is my favorite. This is a fun royal-theme romance.
