Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series & Legal Briefs Series, returns with the first of three sizzling standalone books about a family of racy, irresistible Royals.

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness”, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant—hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.

***

Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.

There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately—the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.

But to Olivia—Nicholas is worth it.

***

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is, but more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

DaisyGal’s Review

Royally Screwed is such a fun, dreamy, and genuinely touching romance! Chase’s writing talent is impeccable as always, and I was completely drawn into this unique royal lifestyle which she conveyed so well. I love that her stories tend to lean more towards the light-hearted side and don’t torture you with angst. They seem to offer just enough of a challenge to keep you engaged and make the story more real and true to life. She has such a talent in creating arrogant and adorable alpha males and making you totally fall in love with them and then complementing them with equally strong heroines which give respect to their relationships.  Topped off with her wit, humor, and passionate characters, this romance completely touched my heart!

It’s been awhile since I’ve read more of a light hearted story that has really given me the feels, but this certainly did just that. At one point in my reading, ‘Love Song’ by The Cure (a teenage favorite of mine) played on the radio. Although I am not usually a crier, as I was singing along to the chorus, I totally teared up relating the words of the song to the depth, feeling, and love in which Olivia and Nicholas’s relationship stirred in me!

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you…

For all of his Princely charm and cockiness, Nicholas was genuine, kind-hearted, and so down to earth.  Although very focused and career driven, he was still able to open his heart and mind to others.  I loved his caring and touching words of endearment and adoration for Olivia, and I was very pleasantly surprised at her strength and courage to go after what she wanted with no regrets. Olivia made Nicholas feel alive with a somewhat normal life, and Nicholas was able to make her dreams come true. Their relationship was fun and flowed very naturally, and they shared such a passion and true love that was worth fighting and sacrificing everything for.

So the Royal is completely dreamy!  I am always a huge fan of any books involving travel and British accents, and who could ever deny a book that includes castles, crowns, the Beastie Boys, AND Kanye? The dual POV’s really helped me to better understand Olivia and Nicholas’s individual characters and their completely different lifestyles.  Simon, Henry, and Franny were so fun and provided the perfect amount of support and humor in the story. I can’t wait for more of this series – Royally Matched (Royally Series Book 2) is Henry’s story due out in February 2017!

*** 5 Stars for Me! ***

“I have a plan.”

We’re in the library of the suite. Nicholas is behind the desk, his hair falling still damp over his forehead from a recent shower, while James and Tommy stand near the windows.

“Take off your clothes,” I say, dropping a stuffed backpack at my feet.

He stands, giving me a curious, dimple-flashing smile that makes my stomach tingle.

“I like this plan.”

He pulls his shirt over his head—and at the sight of that gorgeous chest and ripped abs, I have to close my mouth to stop the flow of drool.

“Should I send the lads to their room?” he asks.

I toss him a Beastie Boys T-shirt and ripped jeans from the backpack. “They can stay—I’ll get to them in a second.”

Nicholas puts on the outfit, his disguise for the day. I hold up a thick gold chain with a dangling cross, and he dips his head so I can loop it over his neck. Then I squirt gel into my hand and reach up on tiptoes to rub it through his hair—mussing it at the top and slicking the sides.

Perfect.

“Do you know how to drive a motorcycle?”

“Yes.”

“Excellent.” I pull a helmet with a full, tinted face shield out of the backpack and hold it up. “Marty’s bike is downstairs. He said to tell you: break it, you bought…a Ducati.”

Logan steps into the room from where he was stationed just outside the door, lifting his hand, like a traffic cop. “Hold on, now—”

Nicholas takes the helmet. “It’ll be fine, Logan.”

“And,” I say cautiously, turning to the three big, strong, probably-have-a-license-to-kill boys. “I want Nicholas and me to go on this outing alone. You guys stay here.”

“Jesus, Mary and Joseph.” Tommy says.

James makes the sign of the cross.

Logan takes another route. “No fuckin’ way. Not possible.”

But the look on Nicholas’s face says it’s definitely possible.

“No,” Logan insists again, his voice straining with a faint hint of desperation.

“I have an itinerary.” I take the sealed envelope out of the backpack and hand it to Logan. “I wrote everything down for you, just in case—exactly where we’ll be, every minute.” When he starts to tear it open I put my hand on his. “You can’t open it until after we’re gone—it’ll ruin the surprise. But I promise it will be all right. I swear on my life.”

My eyes drift from Logan to Nicholas. “Trust me.”

And I want him to—so much. I want to do this for him, give him something he hasn’t had. Something he’ll remember always: freedom.

Nicholas looks at the helmet, then at Logan. “What’s the worst that could happen?”

“Ah…you could get assassinated and the three of us will hang for treason.”

“Don’t be silly,” Nicholas scoffs. “We haven’t hung anyone in years.” He smacks Logan’s back. “It’d be the firing squad.”
