Royal Affair, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marquita Valentine is available now!!!
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.
Royal Affair is the second book in Marquita Valentine's Royals in Exile Series. After reading the first one I was definitely intrigued by where the author was going to take us with Charlotte and Brooks. There was heat and some heart in this book, but it was sometimes overshadowed.
I liked Charlotte back in the first Royals in Exile book so I was excited to finally read her story. Seen as the "spare" twin I wanted to get to know her a bit better and I feel like I did in this book. She's definitely stronger than people gave her credit for, has a kind heart and loves deeply.
Personally I wasn't sure I was going to be a big fan of Brooks-but I definitely was. Underneath his cocky exterior he is a good man and a good match for Charlotte. I think he had a lot of growth in the book which was really nice to see.
There's chemistry and a connection between the heroine and hero from the very beginning. I believed in them and rooted for them. I will say some of the subplot got in the way to me and Gen definitely bothered me in this book, much more so than she did in the first book.
This is technically a standalone but there are many references to things that happened in the first book so I would recommend reading that first. Overall I did enjoy it and will read the next book in the series. This is a fun royals story, with a bit more drama than I expected, but I would recommend it.
