This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series & Legal Briefs Series, returns with the first of three sizzling standalone books about a family of racy, irresistible Royals.
Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness”, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant—hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.
There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately—the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia—Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is, but more importantly, who he wants to be: a King…or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
Modern Romance Royal’s Style
Royally Screwed is like one of those modern fairytale stories where the common girl and the prince fall in love, but it's different. It's not like a Disney version. It isn't like one of those overly dramatic rich and famous soap opera sagas either. There's mucho sexiness and real life problems. The plot kept me entertained. I loved all the characters. They're not perfect, but they're still good friendship material people. I like how everything didn't fit perfectly. Or maybe the way things go is actually more perfect. I have to mention the funeral march scene. It made my eyes tear up. In fact, the storyline did a good job of pulling me into the emotions the characters were feeling. Also, I don't think I've ever thought about how hard it would be to live up to expectations of being born royalty and in line for the throne. I would love to see this play out in film, and I'm looking forward to the next Royally book.
FUN. SEXY. SWOON WORTHY.
Emma Chase first made me fall in love with an outrageously arrogant, hilariously sarcastic investment banker. Next she introduced me to a group of type-A, highly competitive yet entertaining lawyers, and I lost my heart all over again. This time she’s granted every girl’s childhood fantasy: a royal fairy tale complete with dashing princes, castles, and a dour queen.
You see where this is going, right?
Oh yeah. She did it again. Royally.
I fell totally in love with the story and the entire cast of characters, all of whom are unique and highly entertaining. Nicholas is the perfect blend of entitled arrogance, sarcastic wit, and sexy charm. Olivia is the epitome of a fiery New Yorker who tells it like it is, even to the prince who’s used to everyone fawning over him, especially women. She’s strong, unwavering in what she wants, and the perfect foil for Nicholas’ commanding cockiness.
The secondary characters are outrageously funny and extraordinary in their own right, leaving me wanting more of them. Book two will feature the wild antics of Prince Henry. I almost feel sorry for the unsuspecting heroine whose life is about to be turned upside down by the endearing prince. But I need more of the remaining characters too: Olivia’s sister, Ellie; her friend/employee, Marty; Simon & Franny, Nicholas’ best friend and his wife, who I might just have a girl-crush on. Seriously, they’re so real you wish you could hang with them. The only downside to creating a fabulous supporting cast is that they deserve their own stories too. Hint. Hint.
Royally Screwed is filled throughout with wicked humor and sexy times hot enough to singe eyebrows. The beginning is fun and exceptionally romantic, almost swoon worthy. But the last half left me breathless. I loved it, and can’t wait for more royals.
Get Royally Screwed now! You'll enjoy every minute. Then, if you’re new to this author, treat yourself with her Tangled and Legal Briefs series.
This is a great book. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
