Excellent follow up rounds off the royal romance

His Royal Favorite (His Royal Secret, #2)His Royal Favorite by Lilah Pace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There’s still no King of England and England and Britain aren’t the same thing but that’s just my own niggle about when people set a book in in this world but then Americanise it or mix stuff up.

The romance itself, however, is simply divine, full of rich characters in a world which is beautifully drawn out and filled with detail which does give the sense of just how bizarre it has to be to step into a life of eternal scrutiny.

Ben’s uncertainty was wholly believable and the way in which his fears were dealt with and overcome was superbly done. The epilogue was incredibly sweet and I would kill for a book three after James has become King.

Wonderful alternative Royal focussed romance

His Royal Secret (His Royal Secret, #1)His Royal Secret by Lilah Pace

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve knocked a star off for the Americanisms, the Z instead of an S, spelling it whiskey when it’s not Irish, calling it the English throne not the British one.

They’re all minor things and overall don’t spoil what is, in essence, an exceptionally good romance with a decent insight into the British way of life but it’s a pet niggle of mine when authors use a British setting but Americanise it.

The romance itself is excellent, I loved how James and Ben met and, having been a journalist myself for almost 20 years, I totally got the dilemma of getting that big exclusive and then choosing not to write it.

This is a complex and twisting story narrative which weaves itself beautifully into the gradual falling in love which both men try their hardest to fight against.

Now I can’t wait to find out what happens next. Let’s hope it’s not the sticky end many previous “Royal favourites” found themselves in!
