Thank you so much to Emma Chase and Inkslinger PR for the advance copy of Royally Yours.
I was a huge fan of the Royally series by Emma Chase, so I was over the moon when I was given the chance to read the next installment or should I say the prequel for review.
That’s right guys this story centers on Lenora, who you will definitely be acquainted with if you have read the other books in the series (Which if you haven’t you really should).
Here’s the synopsis straight from Goodreads: “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.”
My thoughts below as always will be spoiler free…
- Characters: I absolutely loved Lenora’s stubbornness and headstrongness, it complemented Edward’s more go with the flow nature.
- World/Setting: Wesco is a fictional kingdom, but that only adds to its magic. You can’t beat the setting of European style castles and countrysides.
- Pacing: Emma has always been good at pacing, no matter the subject matter. Once again she nails it!
- Romance (yay or nay?): You cannot but help getting swept up in this romance. It felt reminiscent of watching The Crown on next as the characters inhabit similar roles. Watching the characters fall in love was just wonderful.
Just like all the previous books, this one was five out five stars. I really hope you consider picking it up.
