I’m so excited to be participating in the Release Day Launch for Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase. Below you’ll find a synopsis, an author bio, and a link to enter the massive giveaway! But first up, my review. xoxo V.V.
You know how sometimes you just have these moods where nothing you pick up can keep your interest. Suddenly Royal is broke that streak for me. A generation of The Princess Diaries readers has grown up and this is the book for them.
From the beginning, I was charmed with Samantha and her saucy down to earth personality. Suddenly Royal manages to be sweet, sexy, and poignant. The romance story line is everything you’d want it to be (no spoilers!) and is perfectly balanced by the heartbreak and guilt of the dad’s portion of the plot (no spoilers!). I *literally* laughed and cried with this book, a true feat in my opinion. Frankly, every expectation I had for Suddenly Royal was exceeded. It will be a book that I return to and reread for sure if only to spend more time in Lilaria and with the smexy Prince Alex. With summer around the corner, I cannot think of a better beachy, fun, easy read to take with you to the surf, the sun and the sand.

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.
Nichole Chase is a daydreamer. No, really, just ask any of the math teachers that had the misfortune of seeing her name appear on their class schedule.
For years she has had story lines and characters begging for attention, but she resolutely pushed them aside to focus on more normal (read, boring) jobs.
Well, no longer! She is currently heeding the voices in her head and frantically writing their stories. Ms. Chase is the author of the Dark Betrayal Trilogy, Flukes, and Suddenly Royal (including several short stories).
Nichole resides in South Georgia with her husband, energetic daughter, dog, tortoise, and two cats. When not devouring novels by the dozens, you may find her writing, painting, crafting, or chasing her daughter around the house while making monster noises.
