Book Description

Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

My Review

If you were like me, when you were little, you dreamt of growing up and becoming a Princess, without hooking up with a Prince, because boys were yuck! When I saw Suddenly Royal I was excited to read it as I saw lots of awesome reviews about it and I was hoping to fulfil that childhood dream, however now I am happy to hook up with the Prince!!

I really liked Samantha from the start. She is incredibly smart but also has plenty of wit! She says exactly what she is thinking and doesn’t hold back, but is sharp enough to do it politely. Her first meeting with the Duchess is highly entertaining and with the Prince also being there makes it a little intimidating for Samantha. Finding out that you are a Duchess and the sole heir to an estate in a country your relatives fled hundreds of years ago is a big deal and she seems to handle it quite well. Me? I would’ve freaked out! So it is great to see her absorb the information and consider it.

It doesn’t take long for the news to get out and soon enough Samantha, the ordinary girl, is in the spotlight. But she is not alone as Alex, the Prince, has vowed not to throw her to the wolves and is her constant companion. However, the more time they spend together, the stronger the chemistry becomes and the friends line is becoming harder to avoid.

Alex is amazing, he is very supportive of Samantha and you can see he is interested in her from the first meeting. She has that spark and something different from the girls that he normally dates. He is super sexy and has those hands that send goosebumps all over your body by just doing up your zipper…… Sorry, just reminiscing!! He is an amazing person and has been born into royalty so knows how it all works so he is a great support person for Samantha.

I laughed and giggled my way through this book and found it hard to put down. I laughed out loud at what Samantha said or thought most of the time, giggled through the swoony scenes and cried toward the end of the book as not everything can be rosy. When the chemistry between the characters reaches boiling point, it literally explodes!! Suddenly Royal is an electrifying read and I enjoyed every single minute of reading it and I was able to slip into the book and be a duchess for a day!

Favourite Quotes

I just had to share some of the fun moments from the book, you can see why it’s so good!! And they are all from only the first quarter of the book, there are many more!!

It had been a while since I had been with a man, but that was fixable. They made toys to replace men. ~ Kindle Loc 285

“I’d hate for you to lose sleep over my safety.” His thumb ran across my knuckles and I felt my heart rate increase. 
“Agreed.” He leaned closer to me, the heat from his body warming my arm. “There are much more enjoyable ways of losing sleep.” He winked jauntily and looked toward the curb. ~ Kindle Loc 485

“You mean you prostituted yourself out to the masses? To draw them away? That was… sweet.” ~ Kindle Loc 869

His phone beeped and he muttered something that had to be a curse. The kiss slowed. There was something serious and dangerous behind his kiss—something that made my heart stutter and my panties catch fire. ~ Kindle Loc 1113

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!! Now, have a great day!! lol


  1. This sounds like a pretty cute and sweet book. At first I thought it was going to be like that one movie (I honestly can't remember the name). But I think it would be AWWWWESOME to find out you were a princess. I would so be on board with that!

  2. This sounds like a good book. Didn't we all want to be princesses when we were young. I was for Halloween one year. My mother made me a costume complete with a conical hat. I'll really have to check this one out.
    Thanks for the recommendation!
