Reluctantly Royal is the third story in the Nichole Chase’s “Royal” series. Like previous two stories in the series (Suddenly Royal and Recklessly Royal) it is set in fictional kingdom of Lilaria. The main characters of this story are Prince Maxwell Jameson Trevor D’Lynsal and Lady Meredith Thysmer.

Maxwell (Max) and Meredith are polar opposites in every possible way. Max is the middle child of the Lilaria’s royal family, but he is not very fond of the crown related duties; he particularly dislikes being in the spotlight. The reason lies in the fact that he found out from the tabloids that his father died. Meredith is, on the other hand, born in relative poverty, and she, together with her family, was invited recently to return to Lilaria in order to retrieve their title and lands. Also Meredith is a singer and is, actually, on her way to fame and success and the spotlights are inevitable part of her future career.

Two of them meet under very sad circumstances. Max was the one who had sought Meredith in London and informed her about her grandfather’s death. From London they went back together to Lilaria, and there the rest of the story took place. The story happened over the course of one week – a few days before Meredith’s grandfather funeral and a day after it. The part of the story related to Meredith being in Lilaria preparing the funeral has nice pace, and it is lovely written. But the part related to the Max and Meredith’s romance I find a bit rushed, because they felt the attraction, had sex, fell in love and Max proposed in the course of that one week. And all that while Meredith was going through very sad and hard period. Their relationship would be more realistic, and probably I would feel Meredith’s grief deeper if the pace of the romance was slower.

This book was a total downer. Definitely not a romance that sweeps you away. The tone of this book was nothing like the previous two books. Book one was fun. Book two was hard to finish - story was thin/weak. Book three was down right terrible. I'm disappointed I wasted time/money on this story. I understand a writer can miss the mark every now and then but after spending time/money on two bad stories in a row... sadly, I won't be reading this writer again. Sorry but there are too many good books out there and too little time to waste on reading bad stories.
*Not* a book club read.

Format: Kindle Edition
Reluctantly Royal is book 3 in Nichole Chase’s Suddenly series. This is Prince Max’s story – the one member of the Lilaria royal family who sees his position as more of a burden than an honor. Since his father’s untimely death, Max has shied away from the spotlight and done everything he can to stay out of the media’s grasp. But when he’s asked to notify Lady Meredith Thysmer about her grandfather’s death and bring her and her six year old son back for the funeral, Max decides to step outside of his comfort zone and offer Meredith his assistance.

Unlike Max, Meredith lives for the spotlight. As a singer and performer, being the center of attention is what feeds her soul and allows her to play multiple roles. Her reality as a single mother and daughter of an alcoholic is not how she wants to be recognized, and so, even back in Lilaria, she only allows small moments of who she really is to work themselves past the masks she wears.

Max and Meredith may be complete opposites in terms of their personalities and lifestyle, but they actually give each other what they so desperately need and deserve. Max allows her to be herself and takes care of and defends her and Marty with his life, and Meredith helps Max to step out of his shell and embrace every aspect of his life, even the ones he would rather not.

Max and Meredith’s story is a sweet and somewhat steamy read that illustrates what people are willing to do to be with someone who adds so much love and happiness to their life.

Maxwell Jameson Trevor hates being a prince and his royal role. He doesn’t care for the limelight that comes with being the prince of Lilaria and only finds solace in his art studio. But when a newly discovered royal passes away, Maxwell’s brother asks him to go tell the old man’s granddaughter the news. With compassion and a strength Lady Meredith Thysmer needs in the days to come, Max finds he is drawn more and more to this charming woman.

Lady Meredith Thysmer is new to the royal life and she is determined to do what she can for herself and her son but when she gets bad news from Max, all her dreams come crashing down around her like a house of cards. In the days ahead, Meredith will lean on Max as she fights for herself and her son and in the process finds out what just makes this reluctant royal so down right appealing to her. But what happens when love finds its way into the mix?

I got to admit, I really loved Max. He was an intriguing character that just appealed to me. His disdain for all the trappings of being a royal prince, his love for art and his compassion when he goes to tell Meredith of her grandfather’s death stole my heart. The author does a great job in capturing this reluctant royals vulnerability and heart within the pages of RELUCTANTLY ROYAL. Meredith was a sweet and enjoyable foil to Max. These two meet under sad news and from there find they bring something out in one another, something good that just happens when you meet that right person. I found two items that I just didn’t understand or care for. What I found a bit unsatisfactory was how rushed their romance felt within the pages. The story takes place within one week yet the author never gives them time to revel in falling in love, the pace was just rushed for that aspect of the storyline.

More About the Author

Nichole Chase is a daydreamer. No, really, just ask any of the math teachers that had the misfortune of seeing her name appear on their class schedule.
For years she has had story lines and characters begging for attention, but she resolutely pushed them aside to focus on more normal (read, boring) jobs.

Well, no longer! She is currently heeding the voices in her head and frantically writing their stories. Ms. Chase is the author of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy and the upcoming novel, Flukes.

Nichole resides in South Georgia with her husband, energetic daughter, super-hero dog, tortoise, and two cats. When not devouring novels by the dozens, you may find her writing, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.
