Book Description

New York Times and USA Today Bestseller
Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master's degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it's to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D'Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he's had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women--especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She's stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone's front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

Editorial Reviews


"Suddenly Royal put a smile on my face and kept one there long after finishing it. It has everything I want in a good book: a strong and witty protagonist, a swoony male lead, smoking hot chemistry, and superb storytelling. Suddenly Royal is a must read."
-Nicole Williams,  New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of CRASH and CLASH

 "Sam is a modern woman whose sass, wit, and humor instantly makes you identify with her and root for her happiness. Their chemistry was red hot from the beginning, and I particularly loved the slow, sweet build. By the time these two got together, my heart was racing for them and I just may have been doing a little happy dance! Suddenly Royal introduced a world of authentic characters I cannot wait to read more about."
-Liz Reinhardt, author of Double Clutch, Junk Miles, Slow Twitch, and Fall Guy.

"Suddenly Royal is an exciting fairytale come to life, complete with a sexy romance, crown jewels and a devilishly handsome prince. This book will sweep you off your feet and leave you wishing for a prince of your very own."
-Angie Stanton, author of Rock and a Hard Place and Snapshot

From the Inside Flap


 "So, what are you doing after this?" I looked at Alex, curious. I tried to squash the hope that was bubbling in my stomach. Being around him made me feel like I wanted more.

"Well, that depends. I have some phone calls to make and we were invited to dinner at the mayor's house, but I have a few hours free." He shook the ice in his cup before taking another sip. "I'd like to see your birds. I have to admit, I miss being around them when I travel."

"Well, you're welcome to come with me but it's going to be pretty cold. And there will definitely be people there." I looked around the room. "I don't know how we got lucky for lunch. Normally everyone is here about this time."

"Lucky that you got me all to yourself?" Alex smiled and my face turned beet red.

"I just meant that Mary wouldn't have left you--I mean us--alone with all her questions." Good Lord, I was going to inflate his ego to unbearable proportions if I wasn't careful.

"A man named David sent everyone out of the office. I think he was worried about this Mary, too."

"Mary isn't a bad person; she just takes some getting used to." I shook my head. "I've known her for two years now and she still shocks me."

"I'm glad it worked out this way. I've been trying to figure out a way to spend some time with you since you turned me down for drinks last night. Free time is often hard to come by." Little creases of amusement appeared at the corners of his eyes as he laughed at my expression. "From the shock on your face, I can tell I wasn't being obvious enough."

"I just thought you were being polite." I looked down at my food and tried to calm my racing heart. His warm fingers lifted my chin so that I was looking him in the eye. His face had turned very serious, his eyes intent.

"Wanting to spend a few hours getting to know a beautiful woman isn't about being polite." His thumb ran over my bottom lip and my breath stuttered. "I shouldn't chase you, Samantha, but I'm not sure I can help myself."

I didn't know what to say. Why shouldn't he chase me? Because I'm from diluted nobility? Or because I have enough going on to keep me busy? Did I want him to chase me? I did and I didn't. I wanted him, the man staring at me right now. But I didn't want what that included: the cameras, the politics, and who knows what else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds Expectations April 23, 2013
You know how sometimes you just have these moods where nothing you pick up can keep your interest. Suddenly Royal is broke that streak for me. A generation of The Princess Diaries readers has grown up and this is the book for them.

From the beginning, I was charmed with Samantha and her saucy down to earth personality. Suddenly Royal manages to be sweet, sexy, and poignant. The romance story line is everything you'd want it to be (no spoilers!) and is perfectly balanced by the heartbreak and guilt of the dad's portion of the plot (no spoilers!). I *literally* laughed and cried with this book, a true feat in my opinion. Frankly, every expectation I had for Suddenly Royal was exceeded. It will be a book that I return to and reread for sure if only to spend more time in Lilaria and with the smexy Prince Alex. With summer around the corner, I cannot think of a better beachy, fun, easy read to take with you to the surf, the sun and the sand.

Overall: A

4.0 out of 5 stars So cute! May 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw this book on Liz Reinhardt's facebook feed, and for $0.99 I had to pick it up! How fun that Liz got a shout out inside of the book. No wonder she recommends it. ;)

If the movie Princess Diaries had a college version, this would be it. Replace the cat with birds of prey, and the secret crush on a friend with an attraction to a hot prince. Done.

Samantha, a grad student, finds out she's actually from a line of Royals in Lilaria. And conveniently the prince, Alex, is more than welcoming and softens the shock. You'll walk with Samantha as she goes through the rags to riches process. And along the journey you'll both fall in love with Alex. Especially when he whispers sweet nothings in her ear in Lilarian.

If you thrive off of anticipation between a couple then you'll love this book! There's plenty of the royal life to learn about and experience in between the chemistry that goes down between Samantha and Alex. I don't think the romance is necessarily the headliner of this story. But it is sweet, that's for sure. No insta-love. It takes a while for them to get their footing, but once they do Alex will have you eating out of the palm of his hand. And while there are love scenes, it's far from 50 shades. It was a great balance of everything you want to read about. I really enjoyed it!

The only thing I would have loved is a little more detail in the last couple chapters. I kinda felt like she was tired of writing it and just wanted to wrap it up. Or maybe I want to read things others don't? I was hoping to be there while the queen spoke at her reinstatement ceremony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, Amazing, Romantic... April 23, 2013
To say I inhaled this book would be an understatement. From the very start I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Thankfully I had a free day to read and devoured it within a few hours total. There are no words to express how much I truly loved this book. And if Ms. Chase thinks that she can get away with this being a one book deal, she has another thing coming. I was introduced to these awesome people and I know that the rest of them have a story to tell. There is more romances to write and Ms. Chase better get to writing.

I have never read THE PRINCESS DIARIES but I have seen the movies. And they are great. The storyline of SUDDENLY ROYAL is similar but Chase gives her special touch making it all her own. So if you love the books or the movies, you guys are going to love, love SUDDENLY ROYAL. Just think of it as a NEW ADULT version...but so much better. Seriously, so much better. We are talking tubs here people. And not normal tubs...large, royal tubs. Oh gosh. Now I need to go reread it again. *Fans self*

Alex D'Lynsal. Whoa. Let me tell you a little about him. He is confident but not cocky. Sexy but not arrogant. And it doesn't take long for him to fall for our girl, Sam. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he is smitten as a kitten. Alex is one of the good guys. He is a Prince, but definitely one of the good guys. I just hate that it took Sam so long to see that. Good thing he is a persistent.

Samantha Rousseau. Is this girl ever saucy. She has a good head on her shoulders but isn't one to keep her opinions to herself. In fact, she will call you on your BS if you are out of line. So learning to be a Duchess is going to be a huge task for her. Thankfully she has a little help from Prince Yummy. From the time she meets Alex she feels things for him.

3.0 out of 5 stars Suddenly Royal May 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an easy read with a good story and likable characters. It is not, however, a very strong romance novel like I thought it would be.

The main characters are charming, but there is little romance until over halfway through the book. When it does arrive, it's done well but isn't very intense or steamy. There is no real angst in the book and you can pretty much see where it's headed straight out of the gate. I was caught off-guard because I thought it would have more drama, steamy scenes, etc. For me, this book is very chic-lit.

I didn't dislike it at all, I was just surprised at how different it was than what I expected. Overall, it's a quick and easy read with a nice light story that doesn't have any twists or turns.
