So there I was selling bikinis out of my truck in South Beach Miami, getting ready to kick off a wet t-shirt contest when the world’s biggest grouch approached me – Keller Fitzwilliam.

The man had the sultriest British accent I’ve ever heard. And he looked like he just walked off a Viking boat and into a suit tailored specifically for his impressively muscular frame. Only problem is, he had the warmth of an ice pick and he kept telling me he was here to take me back to his home country.

Of course, I didn’t follow him. I might be up for a good time, but I’m also educated enough to know leaving with a stranger isn’t smart. Well, that’s until he mentioned my mom’s name. My mom who passed away several years ago.

So after some serious fact-checking, my bikini-clad bum went with him to a sub-arctic country I had never heard of just north of the British Isles, where I found out my grandpa was the king of said freezing country, and I was the one and only heir.

Desperate to learn more about my mom, I decided to give this princess thing a chance.

Good idea, right? Wrong.

Because Mr. Ice Pick was put to the task of training me and he’s not just cold as ice, he’s pompous, aggravating, and possessive. And did I mention we have to share a bathroom in a tiny castle?

We are oil and water every single day and even though he’s training me to be queen, I have this simmering desire to kneel before him.

My Review

I wasn’t prepared for Meghan Quinn to take on a royal romance, but she takes the crown for writing such a unique story with her usual humor and steaminess!

First was all the hilariousnesss that usually ensues in her stories with Lilly’s amusing mispronunciation as well as just her completely butchering the words and places she’s told about, such as Hagrid castle. Or when Keller tells her it is his job to be a part of her business and she answers him by letting him know about how she used the shower sprayer on her private parts. When they are preparing her for what could happen if she were to be kidnapped and how to try to save herself, of course she comes up with being tickled for torture, and Keller has to ask if she wants them to prepare her for tickle torture.

As the two decide to give in to their obvious physical attraction, the book got so hot. I’m not always a fan of dom storylines, but this definitely had me wishing someone would storm my castle! What I love about Quinn’s books though, is that she can take me from this aspect of a story to a hilarious moment where I’m laughing at Lilly trying to take Keller down by showing him the “moves” that one of the other bodyguards taught her.

I had a bit of an inkling about who might be the leak in the news about her being in the country, but it definitely wasn’t completely spelled out and so when it was discovered, I was in as much disbelief as the other people who were affected by this person. I loved when Lilly got to meet her grandparents and begin to actually visit her new country and its people. And after the darkest night moment with Keller, which had me in tears, another thing Quinn is good at doing to me, the way he went about winning Lilly back was perfect and made this a perfect HEA.

Emma Wilder and John Hartley narrate ROYALLY NOT READY in duet, and their performances are perfection! Grab your earbuds and dive into this aural sensation today!

      Same, I’m not a royal romance fan usually, but pretty much if Meghan Quinn writes it, I’m going to read it. And pretty much I will end up loving it.
