“I didn’t get a good look at her last night, the elevator doors sliding closed before I connected the dots of who she was. Now, those glimpses come together to form an image I can’t quite reconcile. In the years I’ve been away, Whitney has blossomed. For every year I grew older, she did too.”
I loved this story! It has a prince returning home from a faraway land, a princess who’s adored by all, a castle with turrets, fairytale lands and a love story that starts with an unrequited love. Intrigued yet? What if I say that this is a MODERN fairytale, in other words the kingdom is an enterprise, the fairytale lands are a theme park, the prince is the CEOs grandson, the princess is a popular character played by one of the main characters and the castle is purple. Yep, purple. You’d think that all this would turn the whole story corny, but R.S. Grey has magicked this into something charming and sweet instead. Even the cringeworthy and laugh out loud moments were charming. The story was fast paced without feeling like it, the characters were relatable and it was hard to stop reading once you’d started it. In short, you need to read this if you love contemporary romance and have a weakness for Happily Ever Afters.

About HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS by R.S. Grey – Available Now
I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.
But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.
It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.
Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.
I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.
I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.
He’s just biding his time.
Making me sweat.
His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.
And he wants me.
