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.
A new favorite trope for me is royals falling in love with non-royals. Or just novels about royals. So I was looking forward to reading Royal Affair. Just like the first book in Royals in Exile series, this book was wonderfully sweet and enjoyable.
I loved Charlotte. And Brooks was such a fun character as well. While they both had flaws, their chemistry was satisfying. While I’m traditionally not a fan of characters keeping BIG secrets from their significant others, I was OK with this one.
This book was just so..refreshing! And that cover, I don’t know why, I absolutely love the covers for this series! I really can’t wait for the next book in the series, as the whole Sinclair family is entertaining and rather quite delightful.
