Royally Matched

(Royally #2)

By Emma Chase

 

Prince Henry found his match behind the scenes…

I’m sitting at my laptop trying to get my thoughts together and I’m struggling. See, I have a problem. I really enjoyed Royally Matched… for the most part. The problem is, there’s this one little part at the end that nearly broke my heart. It’s not cheating or anything dodgy like that, it was merely the main characters being smart and wise. BUT…at that particular moment, I didn’t want smart and wise, I wanted reckless devotion and crazy stupid love.

That kind of reckless devotion and crazy stupid love would have had me satisfied for 5 minutes but I would probably be questioning their longevity. So, on further deliberation, I’ve come to realise that Emma Chase has given me a fairytale story injected with real life, real problems and real love. It’s romance that has been tested for strength and endurance which gives it the backbone that other modern day fairytale romances lack.

Henry is now the heir to the throne because of his big brother, Nicholas, deciding to break the rules. How dare Nicholas be happy and find love, leaving him with Granny Battleaxe, AKA The Queen, and…duh…duh…duuuuh… RESPONSIBILITIES.

What a dirty word for a man like Henry who’s the life of the party and chief mischief maker. All he wants is a little fun with a few drinks and a lovely lady sharing their time and talents with him. Henry is not coping well and if they don’t get off his back he may end up doing something reckless and stupid.

TOO LATE…

What a great idea for a Prince to be a reality TV star hosting 20 prospective Queens all vying for a place in his castle…what could possibly go wrong?

Lady Sarah is a little nerdy…the good kind of nerdy, in my opinion. She loves reading, wears glasses and works in a library. Now, Sarah is a good girl who leads a very structured life and is painfully shy. She doesn’t take many risks and her friends are limited to a few.

Sarah’s sister Penny is a wild child who tends to act recklessly. When Penny hears of an opportunity to be on TV and hang out with Prince Henry for a few weeks she jumps at the chance. Sarah being the good girl, offers to go as her assistant and keep her in line. As long as Sarah stays behind the scene…what could possibly go wrong?

Henry and Sarah have a very cute start to their friendship and the more time they spend together, the closer they get. The problems they face have a lot to do with Henry’s responsibilities and the image he created for himself. How can Sarah look past his partying and talent with the ladies? Will the nerdy girl have a chance with a Prince? Can the Prince convince the nerdy girl he can’t see any other woman but her?

Royally Matched tells the story of two people who seem opposites but are actually perfectly matched. Both of them have faced heartache and pain that they still struggle to get past. As we get to know them we seem them grow and mature. Instead of hiding from their fears, they face them head on and become better people for it.

Really looking forward to more in this series.

EXCERPT

Sarah stands up and presses her lips against mine. And it’s so unexpected, so surprising—I freeze up. But only for a moment. As her mouth gently moves over mine, I begin to thaw. She’s so fucking soft, her taste so very sweet. The kiss is almost chaste—at least it’s the most chaste I’ve ever had. Unpracticed.

And yet, it still manages to make my heart pound against my ribs like an animal in a cage.

“What are you doing?” I whisper, when she pulls back just a little.

“I’m distracting you.” She looks up at me uncertainly. From behind those ridiculously prim little glasses with those big, dark eyes that could bring me to my knees. “Is it working?”

My tongue traces my lower lip, craving more of her.

“I’m not sure. Keep trying—I’ll let you know.”

She smiles quick and relieved . . . and then she reaches back up, wraps her arms about my neck, and kisses me.

Her two lips envelop my lower one, then the upper, all eager, pleasing sweetness. My hands find Sarah’s lower back and I pull her in close, tight against me. Slowly, I open my mouth and she mirrors my movement, opening for me. And it’s good. So very, very good.

It’s like my blood has turned to gasoline, and the touch of her wet, warm tongue is the spark.

I delve deeper, kiss her harder—more demanding—taking the lead. I cup her head in my hands, holding her still while I plunge and devour. A moan seeps from her lips and I devour that too.

But then, breathing harshly, I tear my mouth away.

“Sarah, maybe we shouldn’t. Maybe we should just—”

“I’m sick of being afraid, Henry. And I’m so tired of being alive . . . but not really living. I’ve wanted this for a long time. I want . . . you.” It’s only then that hesitation dims her eyes. “Do you want me too?”

I grip her arms. “More than I’ve wanted anything or anyone in my entire life.”

She takes my hands in hers, lifts them and presses my palms to her breasts. They’re soft and full and absolutely perfect.

“Show me.”

Beneath her robe, her bedclothes are paper thin. I trace my thumbs across her nipples, feeling them harden and peak. I want to suck on them until she’s mindless. I want to lick every inch of her skin and watch her flush with desire.

I wrap my arms around Sarah and lift her right off her feet. With a groan, my mouth is back to hers. Her small pretty hands cup my jaw as I carry her toward the bed. I stop against a wall on the way, knocking a frame sideways, lifting her leg in one hand and wrapping it around my hip so I can thrust against her.

There’s so much I know—deviant, filthy, lovely moves. And I want to teach her every damn one.
