Maxwell Jameson Trevor, prince of Lilaria, hates his royal role. Despising the limelight, he takes solace in his art studio and steers clear of any drama. But when one of the newly discovered royals passes away, Maxwell's brother Alex asks him to break the news to the old man's granddaughter. Though he hates to be the bearer of doom and gloom, he doesn't want the poor girl to find out from the tabloids. For Maxwell knows all too well how devastating that could be.
Coming from a broken home and modest background, newly ordained Lady Meredith Thysmer has seized her chance to make a better life for herself and her son. She's not afraid to use her best assets to get what she wants. But when the unpretentious yet devastatingly handsome Max delivers his news, her plans for the future come crashing to a halt. In the challenging days ahead, Max's compassion, humor, and steadfast loyalty to Meredith and her son win her over. She quickly finds herself doing something she swore would never happen again: falling in love. And yet Maxwell still refuses to completely drop his guard. Somehow Meredith's got to find a way to seduce this reluctant royal.
Reluctantly Royal by Nichole Chase
Reluctantly Royal is a enchanting love story. The romance is sweet and endearing but packs just the right amount of steam.
Max is a prince of Lilaria. Since the untimely death of his father, Max has had a hate relationship with the press and has kept his life extremely guarded. When he is asked to notify a lady of their court, Meredith Thysmer, of the death of her grandfather while she is in America, Max is pulled into what is sure to be a media fire storm. Max could choose to walk away or he could help protect Meredith and her young son from the media backlash.
I think I fell in love all over again with the back characters that have delighted us in the past books in this series, they play an integral roll in Max and Meredith's story.
Beautifully written to pull you in and invest you completely into these character's lives, Chase provides an intensely romantic story. To put it simply, I loved reading this book.
I received this ARC copy of Reluctantly Royal from Avon in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication August 26, 2014.
