Huzzah! Our US publisher has decided to celebrate Harry and Meghan’s engagement by running a sale on the e-book of The Royal We this week, and they’ve marked the price down to $4.99 — so if you missed it on Cyber Monday AKA Engagement Monday AKA International Meghan and Harry Day, now is the time to snap it up for your e-reader. And, indeed, does this not sound vaguely familiar?
American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it’s Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain’s future king. And when Bex can’t resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.
Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick’s sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he’s fated to become.Which is how she gets into trouble. Now, on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex is faced with whether everything she’s sacrificed for love — her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself – will have been for nothing.
I mean. It’s obviously based on Wills and Kate, but STILL. American women! British princes! Weddings of the century! Troublesome siblings! I am biased, but you might enjoy it. And now…you might enjoy it for less money.
I also, obviously, highly recommend purchasing it as a gift for your friend who might be very excited about the current engagement and who perhaps hasn’t read it yet? What a hero you will be!
