Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.
Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.
While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.
I absolutely adored Suddenly Royal. It’s sort of like Princess Diaries for grownups!
I love Samantha! She’s very laid back, and only wants to succeed in her dreams. Her mother passed away, and her step-father is sick. So when this royals of Lilaria come in and tell her that she’s actually a Duchess, she’s not sure how to handle the news. Alex is freaking adorable!!! He’s persistent, but doesn’t do anything to make Samantha feel uncomfortable. Even the secondary characters were amazing.
Events progress at a quick pace. Everything happens in a whirlwind. Arrangements have to be made, and Samantha does a great job of acclimating. I love the teasing that goes on between Samantha and Alex. It’s sweet, and sometimes dirty. But the banter between these two is pretty funny.
Suddenly Royal is a fun read. Perfect when you want something happy and flirty.
