REVIEW: Royally Yours by Emma Chase



I've really, really loved this series. I love the complete fantasy world of Wessco and the royal family--I mean who wouldn't? You get to plunge into something so very different than the reality of the world today and imagine what it would be like to be the ruler of a kingdom. In addition to that, Emma Chase writes characters who are just interesting to read; I find that I consume her novels in hours because I can't seem to stop reading once I start. 

Royally Yours was no different--I was completely taken with getting to know Lenora as a young princess--so different than the Queen we know in the first three novels in the series. She's so much more than I gave her credit for and her story before she met Edward, and after, was so much more emotional than I expected--I legit had tears in sections and that is definitely not something I expected from a novelist who usually makes me cackle with laughter (yet another reason I enjoy Emma Chase's works--just when I think I know what to expect, she does something unexpected). 

After reading Royally Yours I want to reread the entire series to see if my perspective of Lenora would change. I think I always suspected she was much more than what she seemed to be and now I know she is--and I'm wondering what hints I missed in the other novels. 

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.
