The Royal Runaway – Lindsay Emory


Author: Lindsay Emory
Series: Standalone
Genre: Royal romance
Release Date: October 2018
Publisher: Headline Eternal

Living in England, it’s no surprise that I love a good Royal romance. The Royal We is possibly one of my all-time favourite books, so when I saw this available on NetGalley, it sounded right up my street.

The story follows Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House of Laurent, who is back from four months of living in exile after her fiancé jilted her at the altar and embarrassed her in front of the entire nation. Tired of trying to be the perfect Royal, she sneaks out one night and meets a sexy but mysterious Scot at a local pub and is instantly intrigued. Relishing the chance to be a ‘normal’ person for one night, she can’t help but get drawn in by his charm.

I listened to my first podcast, now I’m hooked!

So this post will be slightly different to my usual posts, but it does have a slight bookish theme.

I have recently joined a book club (see, there is the bookish link) and although I’ve only been to one meeting, I really enjoyed it, and I’m so excited for the next meet up. We meet once a month in the town and we basically spend a couple of hours talking about the current book for that month and any other topics whilst drinking gin. Sounds like heaven, right?

I recieved this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

When this book popped up on NetGalley, I knew I had to request it. I read the first one a while back and fell in love with the writing and author.

The story is all about second chances and what will happen if you allow yourself to follow your heart. Ophelia and Kyle have both been hiding a huge secret, and when Kyle comes back to town, they both must decide if what they once had is worth fighting for.

One Way or Another – Colleen Coleman

One Way or Another

Author: Colleen Coleman
Series: Standalone
Genre: Contemporary romance, self-discovery, cooking
Release date: April 2018
Publisher: Bookouture

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book labels itself as a “hilarious laugh-out-loud” romantic comedy, and I feel I should warn other readers that this description isn’t really fitting. I wouldn’t label this book a comedy, or even particularly a romance. What this book is, is an enjoyable read of a female protagonists journey of self-discovery. I particularly liked the focus on building a career, and relationships between family and friends.

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an ARC for a honest review.

Whenever I go on holiday, it’s tradition for me to buy a few books to take with me to read on the plane. However, for my latest city break to Berlin, I decided to read some of the ARC’s NetGalley had sent me ages ago and I just hadn’t got round to reading. This was one of them!
