Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
Catherine has spent her life being the perfect princess. She’s kept her hands clean, her head down, and most importantly—men at arm’s length. After all, most men are after only one thing, and for Cathy there’s a lot more at stake than her bed; she has to worry about the fate of an entire nation. But at the rate she’s going, Cathy is afraid she’ll give the Virgin Queen a run for her money. She is tired of waiting for someone good enough to come along. She has a plan, and it all hinges on seducing the one man who seems utterly unimpressed by all things royal. The one man she is tempted by more than any other . . .

When David arrives at the royal wedding of his friend, the newly ordained Duchess Samantha Rousseau, he expected to feel uncomfortable and out of his element, but he wasn’t prepared to be targeted by Prince Alex’s gorgeous younger sister. With Cathy’s giant blue eyes, killer figure, and sense of humor, it won’t take long before he gives in. But when he finds out just how innocent the crown princess really is, will he play the part of knight in shining armor or the dashing rogue?


I don't remember much about the first book in this series, but this was pretty mediocre. And I think that's how I felt about the first one-Suddenly Royal.

The story and romance are cute and fluffy. It could easily be a made-for-TV movie. But it was lacking I wanted more David like some of his POV. Or it would've been nice if Cathy was further developed. She came across a little one dimensional.

The characters actually spoke to each other which was great. See, you can write about adults who use their words. But a lot of the times the dialogue felt unnatural and stilted. Cathy may be a princess, but she still lives in the 21st century. Dialogue is one of those things that really drag a book down for me.

Thanks for reading!
