The royal runaway by Lindsay Emory
Hi Books Lovers,
today I want to talk about a beautiful romance, which has all the elements that a romance should have without exceeding certain limits, smooth, beautiful, which will make you fall in love without adult scenes. A book to read in one breath. I’m talking about one of the latest romance releases of Newton Compton, Lindsay Emory’s Royal Runaway that I had aimed at, just seeing the cover, at Salto19 at the meeting with the publisher.
I had never read anything about Emory and I was positively surprised, she is a very good author, able to engage the reader and make them feel part of the story, and at the same time she is able to really make the reader perceive what th characters feel, whether it’s joy, frustration or anger.
And then we want to talk about the characters themselves. First, I never liked Christian, period. But Nick? I loved him from the first moment he appeared, even though Thea doesn’t have my same thoughts. Nick is the typical mysterious and charming boy but, he is not a bad boy, on the contrary he is completely different. And in these books we all know that the fascinating ones are bad boys, and instead in this book it’s Nick, only Nick and no one else. I have to tell you the truth, because I like to be honest in the reviews. I, after meeting Nick, continued to read the book because of him and it was worth it so thanks Nick. (At the end of the article I will count how many times I wrote Nick, because I have the feeling that there are really many.)
However, it is a book that can certainly not be missing from your list of Romance, The Royal Runaway, as the title says, speaks of Drieden’s royal family, in fact Thea is second in line of succession to the throne, and until she was abandoned at the altar she always fulfilled her duties as heir to the throne, but afterwards she doesn’t know what to think, and she doesn’t know what to do. And it is precisely when the adventure is served on a silver platter – not literally – that she cannot say no, and therefore to get away from court life she throws herself headlong into this adventure that will lead her to discover scandalous things on her wedding, on her family, and she will also perhaps discover, even if different from fairy tales, every princess can find her Prince Charming.
