I'm always excited about the chance to brag about my brilliant friends' books, but today's particularly special because this book ties into the Royal Wedding!
Lindsay Emory, authors, HBIC, and host of the Women With Books podcast, is hosting a cover reveal for her upcoming book The Royal Runaway. I've already read this book and it's just fantastic. It's a funny, twisty-turny, action-filled romantic comedy.
Here's a look at the blurb:
Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent is so over this princess thing.
After her fiancé jilted her on their wedding day, she’s finally back home after spending four months in exile—aka it’s back to press conferences, public appearances, and putting on a show for the Driedish nation as the perfect princess they expect her to be. But Thea’s sick of duty. After all, that’s what got her into this mess in the first place.
So when she sneaks out of the palace and meets a sexy Scot named Nick in a local bar, she relishes the chance to be a normal woman for a change. But just as she thinks she’s found her Prince Charming for the night, he reveals his intentions are less than honorable: he’s the brother of her former fiancé, a British spy, and he’s not above blackmail. As Thea reluctantly joins forces with Nick to find out what happened the day her fiancé disappeared, together they discover a secret that could destroy a centuries-old monarchy and change life as they know it.
Funny, fast-paced, and full of more twists and turns than the castle Thea lives in, The Royal Runaway is a fresh romantic comedy that will leave you cheering for the modern-day royal who chucks the rulebook aside to create her own happily-ever-after.
This book comes out on October 9th, but you can preorder it now in paperback or digital at these fine retailers:
