Filled with intrigue, romance and mystery, Lindsay Emory's The Royal Runaway will whisk you away on a romantic, glamorous and royal adventure. For fans of The Princess Diaries and The Royal We with a splash of James Bond and The Bourne Identity.

Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House of Laurent is so over this princess thing.

After her fiance jilted her on their wedding day, she's back home, having spent four months in exile. Aka it's back to putting on a show for the Driedish nation as the perfect princess they expect her to be. But Thea's sick of duty, so when she sneaks out of the palace and meets a sexy Scot named Nick in a local bar, she relishes the chance to be a normal woman for a change.

But just as she thinks she's found her Prince Charming, he reveals his intentions are less than honourable: he's a spy and he's not above blackmail. As they join forces to find out what happened the day her fiance disappeared, together they discover a secret that could change life as they know it.

Funny, fast-paced, and full of more twists and turns than the castle Thea lives in, The Royal Runaway is a fresh romantic comedy that will leave you cheering for the modern-day royal who chucks the rulebook aside to create her own happily-ever-after.

I had been anticipating a light hearted romance, full of heat and not too much more.   What I read however was so much more than that. 

Set in a small kingdom, the book tells the story of a jilted Royal princess, and her determination to discover just what happened to the man she was meant to marry. 

What becomes incredibly apparent is that she can't really trust anyone. 

There is so much action, and plot in this book its tricky at times to keep track, but once you get to grips with who everyone is and whose side they may be in, its a pleasure to read. 

I found myself turning the pages at the rate of knots, to discover what would happen next.  

As you would expect from a Headline Eternal book, there is some sizzling chemistry between the leads, but how much its acted on... well you will need to read to find out! 

Thank you to Netgalley and Headline Eternal for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
