Praise for A Royal Pain: "A romantic, fantastic, enchanting treat."--Eloisa James, New York Times bestselling author of The Ugly Duchess Being royal isn't all it's cracked up to be... Abigail Heyworth, youngest daughter of the 18th Duke of Northrop, is not your typical British royal--she'll take a recycling drive over a charity ball any day. She can't stand hats and heels. Abby's not getting much sympathy, of course, because everyone thinks the life of royalty is so charmed. But to Abigail, keeping up appearances is unbearable, while running away doesn't seem to work either. Just when she feels like she's getting whiplash from swinging between flat-out rebellion to miserable capitulation, Abigail meets an all-American self-made millionaire who challenges her on every level. It may turn out that what Abigail is searching for kind of resembles the American Dream... Praise for USA Today bestseller A Royal Pain: "A delightful love story...worth reading again and again."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Filled with clever characters, witty banter, and steamy sex, readers won't be able to put it down."--RT Book Reviews, 4 stars "Fresh, funny, and engaging."--Booklist
A life of royalty seems so attractive...until you're invited to live it... Smart, ambitious, and career driven, Bronte Talbot started following British royalty in the gossip mags only to annoy her intellectual father. But her fascination has turned into a not-so-secret guilty pleasure. When she starts dating a charming British doctoral student, she teases him unmercifully about the latest scandals of his royal countrymen, only to find out--to her horror!!--that she's been having a fling with the nineteenth Duke of Northrop, and now he wants to make her...a duchess? In spite of her frivolous passion for all things royal, Bronte isn't at all sure she wants the reality. Is becoming royalty every American woman's secret dream, or is it a nightmare of disapproving dowagers, paparazzi, stiff-upper-lip tea parties, and over-the-top hats?
