Title: Suddenly Royal
Author: Nichole Chase
Publication Date: April 23rd 2013
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.
Nothing special about this book. I didn’t hate it but for some reason I couldn’t bring myself to give it three stars. So yeah it’s going to stay two stars.
I found many things to be too convenient (even though the MC does suffer throughout the story) and some other things unbelievable. The MC got on my nerves a lot and she acted like a seventeen year old most of the time. The male lead didn’t sweep me off my feet. I was very meh towards them both. I felt detached from the story most of the time and was never able to fully immerse myself in it
