Review: Royally Wed by Teri Wilson
Royally Wed - Teri Wilson

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

You know those books that instantly make you happy when you read them? That’s exactly what Royally Wed is for me. I absolutely loved this sweet confection of a story; the characters charmed the hell out of me and Teri Wilson’s writing swept me away to a modern-day fairytale for a few hours.

For the first time in his life Asher Reed – considered by some to be the next Yo-Yo Ma – is having trouble playing. Considering he just agreed to fill in for the famed cellist for the wedding of Princess Amelia of Great Britain, this couldn’t come at a worse time. And that’s before you take into account that his ex and his former mentor who she cheated on him with will be there. Asher can’t afford distractions if he wants to pull himself together, and there’s no bigger distraction than the bride herself. Amelia is trying to shake her “Princess Naughty” image and save her family from being blackmailed by marrying a man she doesn’t love (and who clearly doesn’t love her). She can’t afford a scandal and falling for a handsome American cellist would be scandalous indeed…

I adored Amelia and Asher from the start. They’re lovely, charming, endearing characters who are easy to root for. They have fantastic chemistry and it’s easy to see why it’s impossible for them to stay away from one another. Sparks aside, I loved how they became friends as they fell in love; it added to their love story and gave it more depth. While they do fall in love quickly, it works in this case. I honestly had no idea how they’d get their happily ever after and I loved that Ms. Wilson kept me guessing.

Royally Wed is loosely based on the Fred Astaire classic, Royal Wedding. Of all the Royals books, this one is the least like its inspiration (save for one major plot point) but I really enjoyed the nods to the film that I spotted. As with all the Royals books, Ms. Wilson does an incredible job of updating a classic and giving it her own, fresh spin. I cannot recommend this book highly enough if you enjoy contemporary romances or simply want a pick-me-up. Royally Wed is the perfect mix of sweet and sensual, of real emotion and fairytale romance. In short, it’s simply superb.

Royally Hung by Anne Marsh
Royally Hung - Anne Marsh

 

Forget the tale we think we know. Royally Hung is a new kind of fantasy. The charming prince is a royal jerk with a chip on his shoulder and an appetite for the naughty side of life. Dare is no walking dream, but he does have a few surprisingly sweet attributes. He's easy on the eyes and knows how to lay on the charm to get what he wants. Edee is not his type. She always puts her best foot forward, but seems to consistently be left twisting in the wind. Neither believe in happily ever afters. He has a role to play and she has a life to live. Can the realistic photographer, help the dirty prince learn what it means to be a man? Marsh seduces with a hint of Cinderella fantasy doused with tons of wicked fun and an abundance of emotion. A hot take on a lovable tale.

Royally Roma (The Royals Book 1) - Teri Wilson

Julia had a prince in her bed and julia was a commoner or actually she was pretty much an outcast in American social circles. But in Rome she was just a nobody and julia loved that. It had been a while since Julia had looked at any kind of tabloid not since her father was the embezzler lucas Costa. Julia had sworn off all social media since her family’s turmoil had been a trending topic.Once again Julia had fallen for the wrong man her ex fiance had stolen all her money when everything came out about her dad.  Julia was now a tour guide while she studied for her PhD in Archeaology. Julia had mistaken the Prince for her next client an toike him on a private tour. When Julia looked at Harry she forgot to breathe. She needed more time to absorb this bizarre turn of events. Time to figure out what to do with him. Julia’s closest friend was Chiara. Julia hated anyone thinking she was naive, she had already played the role of the trusting innocent. She definitely wasn’t naive anymore. Just when things were turning around for Julia. Just when she thought fate may at last be on her side she met a prince and didn’t even know it at first. He had lied to her , got her fired from her job, and owed her money. He had lead Julia on a wild-goose chase through Rome. Then he made her want dangerous things and now it would all be front page news. She’d be the laughing stock of Italy. Reduced to little more than scandal again. Her face would be on every newsstand on every corner in all of Europe.  They would dig up her family history and say she was trying to extort the prince. Worst of all they would say julia threw herself at Harry. This was more about a pressing need than sex. This was about self respect and money. He owed her a lot- 1000 Euros. She wasn’t letting Harry out of her sight until he paid her. She had gave him a full day’s guided private tour. Then harry told he never carried money. What had the past two days meant to Harry- was she some royal joke? Niccolo/ Nico threw the front page of Repubblica on a pile of newspapers on the table. His Royal Highness Crown Prince of lazaretto. Nico was grandson to the king, heir to the throne, lord of the manor, duke of a few small territories. Sometimes Nico lost track of the royal titles. There were a lot. Out of all his various roles, one was a standup as far as grief it caused him , every headache, bout of insomnia, every clench of his jaw could be attributed to his one position only- older brother to Cassian La Torre - more often than not the role weighed on Nico more than all the others combined. Nico was the face of the Torre family. He was the P R man, the one who went from country to country shaking hands, cutting ribbons, supporting every charity under the sun and more often than not cleaning up after his younger brother. Nico was tired of covering up for his brother. So needing a break from his responsibilities he takes advantage of Julia’s mistaken identity of him as her next tour. But then Nico could not pay his bill and then his identity came out andher past is revealed.

I had mixed feelings on this book. The first chapter was on the present and then went to the near past in the next chapter and I didn’t really care for that. I did like the plot and fast pace for the most part. This was a light easy read. I would have liked more build up to the romance but also understood that Nico really didn’t have much time. I did enjoy how the author described things. I also enjoyed the adventure. Very unrealistic and I felt there should have been at least some realism. It very annoying a prince out and about with no money at all. Then took advantage of Julia’s mistake and went for an all day private tour and even cost her the tour job. I did chuckle at times though I did like the passion Julia showed for the history and archaeology of Rome since I have visited there. This did somehow managed to drag for me at times. I also felt the ending was just to abrupt. But as I said I had mixed feelings about this book.

Royally Matched By Emma Chase 99 cents!
Royally Matched - Emma Chase

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. 

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit... and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. 

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

"I'm going to hell for this," I mutter.

"Then you should make the most of it before you burn."
