The Runaway PrincessA Royal PainEveryone knows that in fairy tales a common girl meets a handsome prince, they fall in love, she marries him, and they live happily ever after. These two new novels bring that familiar fairy tale theme to life with a twist. In Hester Browne’s The Runaway Princess, Amy Wilde is happy with her gardening business, her friends, and a life out of the spotlight. Then she meets Leo. To her dismay, Amy finds out that her smart, funny, handsome boyfriend is really Prince Leopold William Victor Wolfsburg of Nirona, the ninth most eligible royal bachelor according to YoungHot&Royal.com! After a change occurs in the order of succession, Amy takes on the new role of princess-in-training. Her commoner world is turned upside down as she is thrust into the public eye and must deal with the colorful characters that make up Leo’s famous family. Amy begins to wonder if she can be with Leo and still be herself. Browne’s lovably quirky characters and the warm humor in this modern fairy tale are certain to charm fans of Sophie Kinsella and Helen Fielding.

 

Smart, foul-mouthed Bronte Talbott, the heroine of Megan Mulry’s sexy debut romance A Royal Pain, decides to have a fling with Max Heyworth, the handsome English grad student whom she flirts with at the bookstore. She thinks Max will be the perfect “transitional man” after an ugly breakup with her loser ex-boyfriend Mr. Texas. The plan is a success until she realizes that she has really fallen for him. But Max is head-over-heels in love, and has been since meeting Bronte. He only agreed to her short-term relationship plan because he knows he can convince her to make it something more. He is also hiding something from Bronte-- he is really Maxwell Fitzwilliam-Heyworth, the 19th Duke of Northrop. When Max gets a call that his father is seriously ill, his secrets are exposed. A Royal Pain is a delectable blend of Sex and the City and Cinderella, sure to win Mulry’s new series many devoted fans.
