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.
NetGalley and Random House Publishing Group-Loveswept provided me with an ARC of Royal Affair by Marquita Valentine for my honest review.
Princess Charlotte is the lonely maiden in the tower though she didn’t come by it naturally. Thanks to an awful nanny before their exile she has horrible anxiety which leaves her feeling nothing but relief that she’s the ‘spare’ heiress. Though she is a royal, she longs for a more normal life with a “squad” of her very own.
Brooks Walker is a wannabe king of media but really he runs a glorified gossip rag that has the distinction of often getting the gossip right. Of course that’s not much consolation to Charlotte and the Sinclair family. Though she blames him for upturning her world she also finds him irresistible.
A few flirty jokes over the punch bowl and a Royal Affair is born!
I liked both Charlotte and Brooks, who both—adorably—are twins! But I did find them both to be a little…much but that’s why we still read stories about royals isn’t it? She was sweetly naïve and Brooks was a cynical as they came, but watching them grow as they fell was truly a delight.
I have to say that so far Colin and Della are my favorite but this is another feel good story from Marquita Valentine!
Now…I cannot wait to read Theo’s story!
