Royally Matched by Emma Chase

5 Stars



I am a lifetime fan of this author. I had only read one other novel from her and this one sealed the deal. I have never fallen so in love with the main character in a book while simultaneously having the urge to smack him upside the head.

If you have seen the Bachelor, or even better, the show Unreal, you will really enjoy this. It's the real edition of The Bachelor, except in this season the boy doesn't fall for who you think, he falls for the girl that everyone should be trying to win, but is hiding in the background.

So much love for novels in this book. I could definitely relate not only to some of the main character's little mannerisms, but to her love for reading as well. Seeing her come out of her shell was beautiful and a joy to watch.

In the end this book was all around fun. It had the swoon worthy romance, the hilarious dialogue, and a HEA that left me all warm inside.


Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit... and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.
