Book Review - Barely Regal by E. Davies
Barely Regal (Rosavia Royals, #5)Barely Regal by E. Davies
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The final chapter of the Rosavia Royals and they saved the naughtiest boy for last.

This book has themes of Daddy-boy link and mild Bondage and discipline.

A bratty boy prince needs: a firm but fair Daddy.

Prince Renford - Wren -van Rosavia is the youngest of the princes and, quite honestly, a brat. Barely 19, Ren is given the title of Commander of Roses by his father and it feels like a slap in the face. All his brothers are doing important work - learning to run a country, in the military, working on trade alliances, but what job does he get? Royal rose picker.

The only person who seems wholly on his side - and constantly in his thoughts - is Wren's Valet Thom Pierce. Thom is 16 years his senior and his firm hand and authoritative demeanor have always fascinated Wren. And as he got older those personality traits called to something in Wren's psyche like nothing else. Nobles and dignitaries his age did nothing for him, no matter how much his parents tried to make a match for him. And Thom saw in Wren the submissive tendencies and need for a firm hand that appealed to Thom's Dominant nature like no other.

But the scandal that would come from a prince and his commoner valet kept Thom from acting - the impropriety of it was unimaginable. But that didn't stop Wren because Wren decided he wanted Thomas and would stop at nothing to get him. However, as the Royal Ball approaches and all eyes are on the Royal family, scandal is the last thing they need, especially with an nasty paparazzi, a vindictive footman and Wren's older brothers causing enough scandals of their own.

But the heart wants what the heart wants and Wren and Thom are willing to fight for their relationship, no matter what others might think of it. In Thom's hands Wren is finally free and with Wren in his arms Thom is finally content.

This was a lovely final book in the series. All in all the five books were highly entertaining and a fun read.

Book Review - In His Court by Max Rowan
In His Court (Rosavia Royals, #4)In His Court by Max Rowan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Move over James Bond, meet Benedict, Prince Benedict.

Best Rosavia Royals yet!

The crown jewels have been stolen mere weeks before the historic anniversary ball celebrating the 500th year of Rosavia's nationhood and specialist six of the Rosavia secret service has a vested interest in retrieving the missing national treasures - one of the missing coronets is _his_, after all.

4th son of the ruling monarchs, Prince Benedict van Rosavia has spent a lifetime creating an image of a lazy playboy in order to hide the fact that he has been groomed since childhood to one day take over Rosavia's Intelligence Agency from his aunt Geraldine, the king's sister. Currently he's the country's answer to a certain British super spy.

Enter Felix Wright, a child prodigy- 4 university degrees before the age of 20, a genius whose intellect left him isolated and bullied as a child but also had him head hunted to take over the Quartermaster position as head of R&D for the agency. He's also got a pretty low opinion of the monarchy in general and wastrel princes in particular.

But opposites attract and while working together to retrieve the crown jewels and save the royal family from humiliation as well as possible destabilization of their country, Benedict and Felix realize that each could be what the other has been looking for.

This was definitely my favourite of the series, but I do have a soft spot for handsome spies and nerdy-chic r&d specialists.

Book Review - Throne Together by Zoe Dawn
Throne Together (Rosavia Royals, #3)Throne Together by Zoe Dawn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Third Rosavia Royals book focuses on the 3rd son - Prince Julius. This book has a slightly different trope - best friends since birth and family expectations that they'll end up together. A tale of two royal families if you will.

Julius has grown up with Prince Dante of Thedes. Dante went to boarding school in Rosavia with Jules and Jules went to university in Thedes with Danny. They were inserparable until their last day of university when they did something neither one could forget. They 'experimented'.

Four years later Dante is back in Rosavia for the 500th anniversary ball as well as to broker an arts and tech deal between his country and Rosavia. Rosavia's head of the arts and tech deal? Why it's Julius.

The two mend their fences and realize they really did love each other but Dante's father's machinations and a nasty paparazzi reporter who has it in for the Rosavian royal family keep causing problems and raising doubts until the two men have to decide what - and who - they really want in their lives and then take a stand.

Still very much enjoying this series. Three down and two princes to go!

Book Review - Reign or Shine by H.J. Welch
Reign or Shine (Rosavia Royals, #2)Reign or Shine by H.J. Welch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The 2nd of the Rossavia Royals books centres on the 2nd son and 2nd in line for the throne, Prince Cassander. It is also a lovely, tropy prince of a guy and a sweet but hesitant commoner - this time from America.

Cassander is the 'responsible' child of the family, the one always picking up the slack and rescuing his brothers. He's the one their parents call to 'fix things'. But Cas is tired of being the go-to guy for when his siblings screw up. He's tired of fixing their mistakes and covering for them. He's tired of being the stand in. So when things get too much he escapes into the city and puts on a hoodie and sunglasses, ditches the royal life and pretends to be a commoner called Cas.

Matty Doyle has never set foot out of NYC but he's come to Rosavia because his sister is sick - fighting a reccurance of breast cancer - and her daughter is an archery prodigy who won a placement in a highly specialized summer program in Rosavia. So Matty stepped in, stepped up and escorted his niece to a foreign country. It also helped him get his mind off a bad break up and his own self doubts and poor sense of self worth.

But their luggage gets lost and his neice doesn't have a bow - or clothes and he's trying so very hard to keep it together. Enter his knight in shining armor - Cas 'Rosavia' to save the day and take Matty under his wing and show him the delights of Rosavia while Matty's neice spends her days hitting targets. Little does Matty know Cas is an actual, honest to god _prince_. Until they're discovered and Matty's Cas is revealed to be Prince Cassander.

This is another love conquers all story and another sweet, funny read. Highly reccomend the whole series.

Book Review - Up For Heir by Stella Starling
Up for Heir (Rosavia Royals, #1)Up for Heir by Stella Starling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OMG this was super adorable and such a happy little hea type of royal person falls in love with a commoner trope that I am totally here for it. Throw in the gay for you trope and it was all that and a bucket of chicken.

Crown prince Leopold (Leo) of Rosavia, unrepentant rebel royal and playboy extraordinaire, categorically and vehemently dislikes being told what to do. So when his royal parents present him with a list of perfectly vetted and acceptable women and is told to pick one to marry within a month he.... does the exact opposite of what he's told to do. Quite by accident.

Edvin Blom is a junior librarian at the Royal library and has just had his heart shattered by his ex - who also works for the library - after using Edvin shamelessly to put together an exhibition for their royal patron, the 2nd in line for the throne Prince Cassander. But when the crown prince shows up instead of Cassander and then makes googoo eyes at Eddie's teenaged sister Eddie doesn't even think before he steps between his sister and the lethal lothario... and instantly catches Leo's eye. Not even Edvin's stutter bothers the crown prince. In fact Leo wants to be Eddie's _friend_ for some onknown reason and keeps finding reasons to spend time with Eddie when he has a royal ball to attend and a bride to choose and eventually an entire country to run.

Leo doesn't know what hit him when Eddie steps between Leo and the younger man's sister, but he knows it's important. As they spend more and more time together something about Eddie is just _right_ and soon Leo realizes he doesn't want a bride, he wants a groom and he sure as fudgesicles doesn't want a properly vetted personage to be his spouse - he wants Eddie. Leo finally has something - someone - to fight for and he's determined Eddie will be his.

The world was lovely, a slightly skewed version of our world with a country called Rosavia that sounds lovely (if a little too much into rose flavoured everything and _blueberry_ pizza). The characters were believable and plot line - wihle tropy - one that really kept me interested.

All in all a great read!
