Royally Abandoned

Sarah Fischer and Kelsey McKnight. Tule, $3.99 e-book (310p) ISBN 978-1-950510-66-5

Fischer (the Elton Hall Chronicles) and McKnight (What Happens in the Highlands) team up for this lighthearted royal romance with a twist: the royal would rather not be royal. Determined to abdicate the throne of Aldora, Prince Greyson Montgomery travels from Aldora, an island kingdom off the coast of England, to Savannah, Ga., where he finds a job as a construction worker and meets Savannah socialite Scarlett Calhoun. As Scarlett falls for Greyson and his appealing, caring nature, he is impressed by her easygoing, charitable attitude. Ironically, Greyson’s omission of his royal status makes him less appealing to Scarlett’s mother, who seems to believe that a construction worker is not good enough for her daughter, adding a possible impediment to their relationship. When Scarlett decides to spend Christmas with Greyson in Aldora and he finally tells her about his royal heritage, they both must decide whether the revelation of his princely status will affect the possibility of their future together. Fans of prince and commoner romances will enjoy this variation on the theme. (Oct.)
