A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.
Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?
As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.

The Villain Becomes the Hero - Love it!
There is always something exciting when reading about a royal family. They play by different rules and have years of tradition set in place. As the Sinclair family finds themselves back at the Royal helm, princess Charlotte again has to face her anxiety at balls and dealing with large crowds. Her sister is getting ready to become Queen and Charlotte just wants to fade into the background. Brooks is the bad guy who exposed the family, but he is the only one who truly sees the wallflower, Charlotte. Suddenly digging up dirt on the Sinclair family isn't as important as keeping Charlotte safe and protected. This was a great reverse fairy tale, where the villain truly becomes the hero. I thought it was a really good read. Loved watching Charlotte and Brooks find their way.
Wonderful story with great writing and interesting characters. These aren't your typical royal. They've been in exile for the last 12 years but since their whereabouts and family secrets have been outed to the world their lives have been turned upside down. Having an intense attraction to the man responsible for outing them probably isn't the wisest thing but Charlotte can't resist Brooke Walker. Being the spare sister gives her some freedoms her sister can't enjoy yet letting this fling out of the bag won't go over well with her family. Keeping their hearts out of it is priority one.
A great read that you don't want to miss. I highly recommend it.
The Villian Becomes the Hero
I adored Royal Affair by Marquita Valentine; book two of her Royals in Exile series. This frienemies to lovers adventure as the hero, Brook Walker, was the journalist who exposed the Sinclair royals in book one. He only wants to make sure the public knows the truth, not caring who he hurts in doing so. Charlotte, Char, Sinclair is the spare queen. She is the younger twin, trying to find her place in the family and tired of feeling locked in the tower.
Ms. Valentine created a wonderful story, with characters that not only demonstrate compassion and empathy but also a depth to their feelings. This book exemplifies Valentine’s creativity, sexy and sensitive scenes, as well as her outstanding writing ability.
I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers.
