Royal Affair, a sexy all-new STANDALONE from Marquita Valentine is now LIVE!!!
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.

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
Charlotte is the wallflower princess. Her sister takes the throne while Charlotte is the "spare". But this allows Charlotte to live a little. And when I say live a little I mean do something that is totally unCharlotte-like for her. Brooks is the last person Charlotte should be getting involved with. His business is the news and the last place the Sinclairs need to be is in the news.
When Charlotte proposes a particular arrangement to Brooks, he cannot refuse her. They not only enjoy each other's company, but they get each other. Brooks sees a side to Charlotte that basically no one else sees and Charlotte knows that deep down Brooks is just doing what he needs to do to be successful. They each have qualities that the other has admired from afar, but now they can appreciate each other up close.
And appreciate they do! I freaking loved Charlotte and Brooks together. More often than not Charlotte is the most polite person on the planet. She can't help it. Even in the heat of the moment Charlotte is doling out compliments and acting all prim and proper. And Brooks...whoa baby. He is the whole package. Good looking. Successful. Sexy.Heart of gold. And most importantly, he is not afraid of the Sinclair family. That last one is the most important because when it comes down to it, that is quality he will need the most.
I LOVED this book. Charlotte and Brooks had amazing chemistry and being with him allowed her to be the person she wants to be. Some of my favorite moments in this book is when it is just the two of them just being themselves. Charlotte is able to let her hair down and show him that she is more than just the "spare princess". Of course Brooks thinks her to be way more than that and he shows/tells her every chance he gets. Of course there are a few kinks along the way to their happily ever after and I found those to be just as interesting at their relationship. And if you thought there were some family secrets in the first book, just wait until you read this one!
