A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.
Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?
As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.

This is the second book in the Royals in Exile series and it’s just as fun as the first. More secrets are revealed in Royal Affair and their story of corruption and coverups go even deeper. Truths are not truths. Enemies reappear along with blackmail and threats.
Overall Royal Affair was fun and engaging, sweet and sinful. And a reminder that family can be both reliable and a Royal pain. I enjoyed how in both books Marquita Valentine gives a little bit of a teaser for the next book in the series. It’s done very well – not a cliffhanger (which I hate) a glimpse into the next couple. I look forward to reading more of this series.
I received this book for free from the author and publisher via NetGalley. This is my voluntary review.
- Curiosity killed the queen. Literally…
- I don’t think I’ve ever been this attracted to prey before
- But I’m the good twin.
- Death by orgasm isn’t the headline I want for her.
