*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.
Royally Yours is a standalone story and a spinoff of The Royally Series.
"If you've enjoyed watching The Crown then you are going to go wild for this times about a thousand. All of the mid-twentieth century royal flavoured atmosphere, along with as much sweet and sensuous emotion and drama, you could ask for. The whole series has been nothing short of delightful. And hot. Royally hot." -Kylie Scott, New York Times bestselling author of It Seemed Like A Good Idea at the Time
"This was a lovely read. Lenora’s loneliness radiated off the pages. Edward’s arrival saved both Lenora and me. It was a touching, sexy, beautiful romance. I feel fortunate to have read it." –Jen Frederick, New York Times bestselling author of Be Mine
"With all the timeless enchantment of a modern fairy tale, Emma Chase weaves a delightfully romantic royal affair that took my breath away. Long Live Queen Lenora!” –Natasha is a Book Junkie blog
“Something about Emma Chase’s writing creates a hungry hole inside me and sucks all of me in. Lenny and Edward are two people with extraordinary lives who find the gift of normalcy in the way they are able to love each other, and it's a beautiful thing. I teared up, smiled widely and did not want to return to real life.” –Sonali Dev, author of A Distant Heart
OH MY! Well done Emma. Well done.
Emma is my favorite author of all time and she never disappoints. She's a genius storyteller and I love every chapter in the book. My weekend is great because I have Queen Leonora on my mind. Great job!!
Fantastic love story
I was SO excited when I saw Emma Chase was writing this book. I absolutely LOVED the entire Royally series so I had high hopes for this book and I was absolutely not let down. This book is one that will stay with me, one that I will go back and reread time and time again. I laughed, I cried and I absolutely fell in love with this book.
If you haven't read any of the other books in the Royally series you can absolutely start here. This is the story of Lenora and Edward and it is absolutely a fascinating and beautiful read. Your emotions will be pulled every which way but I know in the end you'll feel as satisfied as I did.
I admire, respect and adore Lenora. She is one hell of a strong character. She's a woman who knows what needs to be done and does it-no matter what. She isn't afraid to speak her mind while still respecting traditions that have been in place for forever. Watching her grow and become the Queen she truly is was so gratifying. I wanted to hug her several times throughout this book, give her a shoulder, a friend to lean on. The grace and poise she has is tremendous and coupled with her passion? She's a force to be reckoned with. She may be my favorite Emma Chase heroine.
Edward. Holy swoon. This man is positively breathtaking. He's smart and strong, which Lenora needs. He also respects her, which is something she demands but isn't given so freely from other men in her life. He's a beacon of support when she needs it. Watching him fall for her was beautiful. Just beautiful.
These two together have chemistry in spades, truly. I love their banter, absolutely love it. I loved watching them grow together as a couple, figuring out their journey and what each of them could offer the other. Their sexy times were off the chart hot-I think my kindle may be permanently melted.
This entire story is just beautiful. It is heartbreaking. It is sweet. It is funny. It touched me and had me bawling at moments. The writing flows and the pacing is just perfect. I felt like I was right there with the characters.
This is absolutely one of my top books of the year. I absolutely loved it and would give it more stars if I could.
