For fans of The Princess Diaries and The Royal We comes a fun and daring novel about a modern-day princess who teams up with a spy to find out what happened to the fiancé who left her at the altar—and who just might get her own fairytale in the process.
Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent is so over this princess thing.
After her fiancé jilted her on their wedding day, she’s finally back home after spending four months in exile—aka it’s back to press conferences, public appearances, and putting on a show for the Driedish nation as the perfect princess they expect her to be. But Thea’s sick of duty. After all, that’s what got her into this mess in the first place.
So when she sneaks out of the palace and meets a sexy Scot named Nick in a local bar, she relishes the chance to be a normal woman for a change. But just as she thinks she’s found her Prince Charming for the night, he reveals his intentions are less than honorable: he’s the brother of her former fiancé, a British spy, and he’s not above blackmail. As Thea reluctantly joins forces with Nick to find out what happened the day her fiancé disappeared, together they discover a secret that could destroy a centuries-old monarchy and change life as they know it.
Funny, fast-paced, and full of more twists and turns than the castle Thea lives in, The Royal Runaway is a fresh romantic comedy that will leave you cheering for the modern-day royal who chucks the rulebook aside to create her own happily-ever-after.
Book Review: The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory
I am a huge fan of royal theme books. I love reading about princess and fake European countries. This story is about a mystery.
Thea is left at the altar and banished for a few months to deal with her heartbreak. She comes back to the throne but she is not herself. A few nights she escape and meets a mysterious man.
This mysterious man turns out to be her fiance’s brother who happens to be a spy. He is in Thea’s life trying to figure out what happened to her ex fiance. Over the course of a few weeks, Thea is on the run trying to figure out what happened to him and about corruption within the monarchy.
I read this book in one day and loved it. I love that the romance didn’t overpower the story. This was a thrill chase of cat and mouse. I love the mystery and how it unravel.
My feels: This book combine my passion for royal theme books with a fun chase and mysterious plot twists.
