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

Fairy tales do come true—and so do tabloid scandals! New York Times bestselling author Marquita Valentine kicks off a juicy contemporary romance series with a novel about a prince whose best-laid plans go deliciously awry when he marries the maid next door.

Forced to flee to the United States with his siblings after their parents’ assassination, Crown Prince Colin Sinclair takes it upon himself to become the caretaker of his family while hiding out near Charlotte, North Carolina. But after a decade in hiding, the secret’s out and Parliament demands that Colin wed a princess of their choosing. Unwilling to play their game, Colin decides to marry an American instead, and he has the perfect candidate in mind.

As a home-service professional, Della Hughes doesn’t believe in storybook endings. But when her best friend and secret crush reveals that he’s a flesh-and-blood prince, she doesn’t know what to think. Still, she’ll do anything for Colin, including becoming his wife—in name only, of course. But when their plans to stay purely platonic go by the wayside, their fake honeymoon turns all too real. After a week of white-hot nights, Della can no longer deny her feelings—not with a happily ever after so tantalizingly close.

My Review:

4 Stars!!

Royal Scandal is a great start to a new series, Royals in Exile, by Marquita Valentine!

In this introduction to the royal Sinclair family, we are treated to a Cinderella-like romance between Prince Colin and commoner Della. These two have been best friends and secretly in love with each other for ten years. When a threat of sorts to the Sinclair family forces Colin to make a decision that will affect himself and his siblings, he makes a choice. He asks Della to marry him…in name only. Only that little caveat doesn’t last very long at all.

This is a great fairytale like story of the common, girl next door (literally) and the Prince. Della and Colin are great characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. They aren’t perfect but they listen and support each others. When they finally move their relationship beyond friendship, things heat really quickly and these two are on fire in the bedroom and the library and a secret pool…well, you get the picture. The book introduces us to all members of the Sinclair family and does a nice job of setting up future books, but the story of Colin and Della is really beautiful and you will love every second of it.

I fell in love with the Sinclairs and I bet you will, too!
