Welcome to the Royals!
What will follow for the next several months is four books. Four royals from four different countries.
In the first story, Ascending, tragedy has stricken a small North Sea nation, and an unexpected Queen takes the throne. That tragedy brings her to a reporter, who just happens to be there for a much-needed vacation, and as secrets are discovered and a monarchy hangs in the balance, two women fall in love.
Each book in this series takes place in a new country, but there are some loose friend-and-family connections as you have with monarchies today. They can be read as stand-alones, but I’d still recommend reading them in order
or you’ll miss some of those connections.
This is book #1 in the Royalty Series.
Growing up fifth in line for the throne, Elizabeth never thought she would have to rule the small island nation of St. Rais. When a plot to take down the monarchy also takes her entire family from her, Elizabeth is thrust into the role of reluctant Queen. Not only did she lose most of her family, but she also lost the only love she’d ever known.
Palmer Honeycutt, a reporter for a popular New York City newspaper, was on vacation in a country nearly no one had heard of before. A deal she’d gotten at the relaxing resort and spa had been just what she’d needed. Little did she know that while she was trying to relax, the whole royal family would nearly be lost to tragedy, and a young Queen would present her a perfect story.
Both women approach their new relationship cautiously at first, but it doesn’t take long for Palmer to start wishing the new Queen was someone she could spend more time with. Elizabeth also seems to have a lot of time for Palmer, which only confuses Palmer more.
After all Elizabeth has lost and what she’s willing to give up for her country, is she also willing to risk it all to possibly find love again in an American reporter who’s been there for her during the toughest part of her life?
