Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series & Legal Briefs Series, returns with the first of three sizzling standalone books about a family of racy, irresistible Royals.

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, but more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

My Thoughts on Royally Screwed

I’ve had my eyes on an Emma Chase novel for awhile.  But it seemed fate was always working against me as whenever she would have a release, I would have a backlog of reading to get done.  I own several of her books but for some reason they have sat on my kindle.  Sad, I know!!  But With Royally Screwed, I was like, THIS IS IT!  I’m am not letting another Emma Chase release get by me!!! NOT THIS TIME!!!  Oh lord have mercy I’m so glad I put my foot down! I freaking loved this book!! LOVED IT!!  I’m not always into RomCom.  I am a lover of dark and gritty romance but a girl needs to lighten it up a every so often and this filled my black heart with just what I needed, Prince Nicholas!!   Oh hell yes! He was sexy, a dirty talker, and everything a girl looks for in a dashing young prince!  I wanted to eat him up!

What can I say about the Prince!  He’s all the gentlemen he is supposed to be but he has a naughty side behind closed doors.  Due to his countries laws, he must marry as he is next in line for the thrown when his Grandmother passes away.  He knows what his duties are but when he’s never had a steady girlfriend, let alone be in a relationship with anyone of the women he knows or has an occasionally sex with.  They are good for one thing and its not a long term relationship.  He is the senseible one where his brother is more the rebel and when things start to get out of hand with him, Nicholas is sent to bring him back home. Little does he know if will be bring something more back home than he expected.

Olivia… I just loved her!! She was the true New Yorker that doesn’t take crap from anyone.  Gotta love a girl like that!  She works in her family coffee shop making pies.  She is the thing holding her family together.  The night Prince Nicholas walked into her coffee shop she couldn’t have guessed that by the end of the night he would be propositioning her for a one night stand.  He has a bet with his friend that anyone can be bought.  But being a New Yorker, she doesn’t take his bait, no matter how much she could use it to help keep the business a float.

There is something about Olivia that captivates Nicholas. He keeps going back to the coffee shop and convinces her to go on an actual date with him.  Their chemistry and banter was phenomenal.  They have a whirlwind relationship but like all good things, Nicholas time in New York is coming to an end.  He must convince Olivia to come with him back home.  It seems like things are too good to be true. Their relationship is too easy.  What is a good royalty romance without a little scandal?  Good ole Nicky does have a little secret and when it comes out, it will change everything for everyone.   Trust has been broken and hearts shattered.  Can they come back from this?  Nicholas is next in line for the thrown, how does this change everything?  You will need to read Royally Screwed to find out!!! I thought this was a great 5 star read that everyone should read!!

Excerpt

She’s even lovelier than I remembered, than I dreamed. Delicate midnight tendrils frame a face that belongs in a museum—with stunning dark sapphire eyes that should be commemorated in vibrant oils and soft watercolors. If Helen launched a thousand ships, this girl could raise a thousand hard-ons.

She’s prettily made, the top of her head coming only to my chin, but fantastically curvy. Great full tits that strain the buttons of a wrinkled white blouse, shapely hips in a black skirt tapering to a tiny waist I could wrap my hands around and toned legs encased in sheer black tights finish off the whole package very nicely.

An unfamiliar anxiousness fizzes like soda in my gut.

“The door was open,” I explain.

“It’s broken.”

Logan flicks at the lock. Security is his life, so a broken lock would annoy him like a puzzle with the final piece missing.

“What do you want?”

She has no idea who I am. It’s in the defensive way she holds herself and the accusatory note in her voice. Some women try to pretend they don’t recognize me, but I can always tell. Her ignorance is rather…thrilling. There are no expectations, no hidden agendas, no reasons to pretend—what she sees is what she gets. And all she sees is me.

My throat is suddenly a barren wasteland. I swallow, but it’s difficult.

“Well, he’s desperate for some pie.” I hook my thumb at Simon. “And I…wanted to apologize for the other evening. I don’t normally act that way. I was on a bit of bender…”

“In my experience, people don’t do things when they’re drunk that they wouldn’t do normally.”

“No, you’re right. I would’ve thought all those things, but I never would’ve said them out loud.” I move closer, slowly. “And if I’d been sober…my opening bid would’ve been much higher.”

“She crosses her arms. “Are you trying to be cute?”

“No. I don’t have to try…it just sort of happens.”
