Author: Emma Chase
Release: February 21, 2017
Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.
But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.
As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.
4 Star ****
This is a thoroughly entertaining modern day fairytale with all the pomp and circumstance of a historical romance. Young Henry is a wild, devilishly handsome and fun loving royal who finds himself unwittingly cast into the role of Crown Prince. Boorish and unwilling to commit to the responsibility thrown at him, his grandmother and Queen banishes him to the country castle and tasks him to become better acquainted with the politics of Wessco. Instead he decides to make a game of his rakish ways. I loved the originality of this premise. The last thing you expect in a Royal romance is a reality TV game show. He has no real intention to find his future queen on the set but he does intent to have a randy time and enjoy playing his part. Can he make the girl and a country fall in love with him? It makes for light hearted fun peppered with a few poignant subjects such as PTSD, domestic violence and archaic laws. Most importantly it is a coming of age story. We get to watch a boy become a man and a man become a King.
