"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.
