The Cover: I adore this cover! It is my favorite cover out of the entire Royally series and the cover model is exactly how I pictured Edward to look like in my head, I love it!
Basics: Royally Yours was released on October 28th 2018, is 215 pages long and is part of the Royally Series. Genre wise Royally Yours belong to romance and historical romance.
Description: Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t…is married.
It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty.
Even Queens. Especially them.
Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home.
And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure.
Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.
Overall thoughts: I honestly believe that Royally Yours is the best book of the entire Royally series. I never thought I would say that because I adored and loved Royally Screwed and Royally Endowed, but Royally Yours just captured my entire heart. It was so well written that I would read a few sentences and just melt over how beautiful they were. I swooned over this book so much and that is exactly what a book is supposed to do, make you fall in love with the story, characters and writing. Royally Yours did that with me and so much more.
I think one of the main reasons Royally Yours touched me so was how Lenora felt; losing people in her life that meant so much to her, losing people that were supposed to help guide and support her as she came into her own as Queen…that really hit home. I lost my Father a year ago and I was thrust truly into adulthood and it has been so hard. Reading someone who has felt the same as I do, lonely, confused and unsure it really hit home.
However I believe more than anything how love can really fix and heal all wounds and Lenora truly flourishes as a woman and as a Queen when she finds her match in Edward. Unlike the rest of the Royally series which is set in modern times, Royally Yours is basically a prequel to the entire series. Which I found so interesting because as history has shown us, many people did like not having women in power. Let’s be honest here, they still don’t and its 2018. Becoming Queen means Lenora has to get married, because apparently you can’t rule a country unless you have a man by your side right?
Not only does she have to navigate becoming Queen, ruling as Queen all on her own without the help of her parents but now she has to get married due to the pressure she’s receiving from government officials. Enter Edward. They met under sad circumstances but their love story is so wonderful and compelling, definitely one of my favorites of 2018 if not ever. I love this story and I am in love with Lenora and Edward. If you love a good old fashioned royal story with sizzling chemistry Royally Yours is the book for you.
