There WILL be a royal wedding. The only question–who will be my groom?
An arranged marriage isn’t the worst fate for a princess like me. Especially because I’ve been in love with my intended groom since we were children.
But when my prince shows up with an American girlfriend instead of an engagement ring, all arrangements are off.
The clock is nearing midnight–I won’t turn into a pumpkin, but if I’m not wed by summer’s end, I’ll forfeit my kingdom.
Just your typical royal dilemma.
Out of sheer desperation, I make a deal with a devilish duke. Rafe de Silva is the prince’s rival and has a plan so ridiculous it just might work.
One moment, Rafe seems to relish making the prince jealous.
And the next… he’s making me question everything with his words, his touch, and his ability to melt my Ice Princess persona.
I’m not always given the luxury of choice, but now I have a huge one to make. I only hope I don’t lose my crown, my heart, or myself in the process…
Royally Rearranged is a sizzling, swoony, closed-door romantic comedy.
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute reading Royally Rearranged by Emma St. Clair. This story is FUN! I’ve read a couple reviews that stated this book has a Princess Diaries 2 and The Prince and Me vibe. I get that, but this book is better. Those films are Hallmarky cute. Royally Rearranged has substance and depth, chemistry and passion, and deals with real-life topics: confronting self-expectations, parental structures, communication fails, the trauma of loss, abuse, infatuation vs. genuine love, etc. This book is more than just some cutesy romance. And that’s what I love the most about Emma St. Clair’s novels — they aren’t mindless fluff. When I read her books I am gripped by her characters and all they experience, and I feel her characters are SO relatable no matter the situation. Royally Rearranged is no exception. No, I am not a royal, but when a heroine says, “The lessons on being a proper princess, on presenting the perfect image, may have struck too deep. I’ve caged myself, more than the rules and stipulations ever have. Even in private, even amongst those I trust,” how can a woman not relate to that?! I’m not going to lie, when I read these words from Serafina I teared up a little. I get this. I’ve caged myself too because I cared so much about what others thought about me, and because I am the kind of person who wants to do what’s right always. So, I may not be a princess, but I am a woman who totally gets where the princess of this wonderful story is coming from. Royally Rearranged is wonderful from page one to done. The plot is fast-paced, the characters are endearing and relatable, and the topics discussed and wrestled with are timely. I highly recommend this excellent Rom-Com.
