Royally Screwed - The Royally Series Book 1
By Emma Chase
(Audiobook/Audible, narrated by Andi Arndt and Shane East)
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.

A prince who snaps his fingers and people follow his commands plus a plucky young New-Yorker trying to keep the family business afloat equals one of those romances you know you'll love from the start. Who doesn't love royalty, or down on their luck heroines who catch a break just when they need it the most? What could potentially be a trite Cinderella tale manages to be endearing and seriously steamy all the same time. The two readers and alternating POV's in the story help to really cement these characters as highly enjoyable and very entertaining. Guaranteed to melt your frosty heart on a cold winter's night, Emma Chase has been added to the "go-to" pile for this gal!
I give Royally Screwed a delish Four Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries. I highly recommend the audio version to hear the intensely sexy baritone of Prince Nicholas!
