"Passion, pleasure, and princely responsibilities make this sexy fairy tale a real page turner." —Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Calendar Girl
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 and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
Royally Screwed is a funny, sexy, lighthearted read that provides the perfect escapism. I am in awe; totally enamored with this story of duty, love and what one is willing to sacrifice in the wake of finding that soul fulfilling happiness, even if it goes against everything you have been taught.
For Nicholas Pembroke being next in line to the throne comes with huge responsibility and a respect for royal tradition. Sowing wild royal oats is a perk that has a lingering sell by date when the Queen demands he soon find a wife born from nobility and from their birth home of Wessco.
Prince Henry, the ‘spare’ has been on a permanent bender since he took leave from the armed forces. Nicholas has been given the task to bring him home, along with attending some charity events on behalf of the Queen in New York.
Olivia is a hardworking coffee shop owner in Manhattan struggling to make ends meet. When a charismatic, good looking, drunk arsehole propositions her to spend the night with him for $10,000 instead of biting his hand off, she throws pie in his face and asks him to leave. Nicholas, upon being sober realises his mistake and goes back to apologise. He is pleasantly surprised that she has no clue who he is.
Olivia can’t help but be attracted to his honest arrogance, and it’s not long before she can keep saying no to his advances, even knowing his stay is only for a short while.
From here the story really heats up with some incredibly hot scenes that are lighthearted and fun, but intimacy paves way to emotions and Olivia knows that no matter how close she gets, their time together is temporary. She cannot keep him, and Nicholas knows she can never truly be his. The heart wants what it wants, but the Crown will always come first.
This story takes our heroine from the hustle and bustle streets of New York to the elaborate Royal Palace of Wessco, but living the fairy-tale is never as it seems when a country that Nicholas was born to rule, could never open their hearts to a foreign commoner.
Love, Loyalty, Heartbreak and Sacrifice are all here, as well as the comical injection of genius that Emma Chase is known for – this book has a little bit of everything and I fell in love with it from epilogue to prologue. Unleash your inner princess and fall in love with a royal or two… trust me, you won’t regret it.
