When you spend Christmas in a castle, anything is possible.

1860. Lady Alexandrina Gailey is looking forward to a cozy holiday at Windsor Castle with her best friend, Princess Alice, and her long-time crush, Lord George Worthington. But Drina’s plans are all but dashed when Alice’s parents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, declare that Alice must choose one of two royal princes to become engaged to before Christmas.

There’s just one problem: George, a junior member of the Foreign Office, has accidentally misplaced one of the princes.

Together, Drina and George scour the town of Windsor for the missing prince, desperately hoping to deliver him to the royal dinner party with the queen none the wiser. They might just need a royal Christmas miracle to pull it off.

My Review:

I’ve been a fan of Royal stories since Prince William and Katherine got married back in 2011. My research about the Royal family is pretty good and knowing that someone else shares the same level of dedication is truly exciting.

After watching various Royal sitcoms such as The Crown and Reign, I have realised that a Royal household cannot carry on without any dramas or scandals. A Royal Christmas Quandary happens to celebrate a very amusing scandal that allegedly takes place in Queen Victoria’s reign.

This book is a perfect start to the Christmas reading. The characters, Drina and George and so well-developed. Drina, being an-almost royal knows that after her father’s death, she won’t inherit his estate, makes it her duty to convince Queen Victoria to change the laws. I loved the strong nature of Drina trying to take a stand in time where this was not easily possible.

George, on the other hand, is a far off cousin but is determined to prove to his Duke of a father that he is capable enough to manage the works of the Foreign affairs, even if it’s not to his liking. Being the second son always puts him at a disadvantage with his overachieving brother standing next to him.

When the Crown Prince of Germany disappears, under George’s unofficial watch, matters seem to get a bit serious as the Crown Prince would be a suitor to Princess Alice, Queen’s daughter and Drina’s best friend. Drina being the only sole companion and trusted confidant of George’s tries to help find the Crown Prince. What ensues, is a series of comical situations and fixes that made me laugh a lot.

The best part about this book is the secretive romance between Drina and George. The author has weaved it into the book so perfectly that it feels like a mini fairy-tale with lots of fun drama. The chapters are short and flow from one to another in an organised manner which is fun to read. The third person POV shows both the character’s thoughts which makes it so easy to understand their feelings.

In all, I loved the book and recommend it to those who love themselves a Royal family drama. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and all the thoughts and opinions above are mine.

(The Forever Series, #6)
Publication date: September 17th 2020
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Healing doesn’t happen overnight. Neither does falling in love.

Braylee

Frankenstein has nothing on this twenty-year-old. Okay. Maybe a few more stitches in a few more places but we both were sewn back together.

A year and a half ago, I lost my family in an accident that left me scarred inside and out and with a sizable inheritance I refuse to spend. Money can’t bring me happiness. No touch can bring me comfort, and desire—forget it. Who’s going to want me like this?

That’s what I thought until Grayson came into my life.

The ex-baseball star has a list of home runs on the field and off. He’s all wrong for me, possibly broken beyond repair. I can’t help him. I’m still trying to fix myself.

But when he’s near, parts of me spark back to life. And when he looks at me, I feel like my old self or a version of her.

How wrong would it be to pursue this thing between us? Could I handle it? Should I bother finding out?

Grayson

Damaged? Me? Maybe a little. Fine,a lot. But I’ve been through some shit.

It’s not every day you find out your dad’s a liar and a criminal who launders money for the mafia. Trust issues are only one of my problems. Trouble has a way of finding me or maybe I create it. I turned down an offer to play in MLB and quit the game.

At twenty-two, I’m a walking disaster, which is fine as long as I keep my guard up and don’t bring anyone into my mess.

That was the plan until Braylee entered my life.

How can someone who’s lost so much face the world with more strength than I have in my batting arm? I want to devour her and shelter her at the same time.

I’m trying to be good. But that’s never worked for me in the past, especially when all I want to do is tear down her walls, her clothes, and anything else she’s hiding behind.

*Spin-off to The Forever Series. Standalone.

EXCERPT:

“I just wish you didn’t hate me so much.” I concentrated on the coffee in my cup as I swirled the wooden stirrer round and round.

“I don’t hate you,” I said, focusing my attention back to him. “I hate what we did. I hate that I let it define who I was for so long, and I hate that I hurt someone I cared about so much because of it. But I don’t hate you—you were just one of the many cracks in my life.”

He creased his forehead. “I don’t understand.”

I gazed at him long and hard, finally fearless of the shame the man staring back at me conjured up inside of me. He held no control over me, and he never had. I stood up and pushed my chair in as he sat there waiting for an explanation. “And I wouldn’t have expected you to. Goodbye, Jonathan.”


Author Bio:

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen – or in today’s world a touch of the keyboard. I love creating deep characters who you will love or love to hate.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? My happy place is a seat by the ocean with my feet in the sand or on the busy streets of New York City. You will more than likely find one of these places as the setting for most of my books.
