We are beyond excited to introduce you today to a book that we guarantee is going to be on your Spring MUST-HAVE list. We love Nadine Jolie Courtney and were thrilled when she contacted us to exclusively reveal the cover of her new book, Romancing the Throne, which will be released in May 2017. So, without further ado…
For the first time ever, the Weston sisters are at the same boarding school. After an administration scandal at Libby’s all-girls school threatens her chances at a top university, she decides to join Charlotte at posh and picturesque Sussex Park. Social-climbing Charlotte considers it her sisterly duty to bring Libby into her circle: Britain’s young elites, glamorous teens who vacation in Hong Kong and the South of France and are just as comfortable at a polo match as they are at a party.
It’s a social circle that just so happens to include handsome 17-year-old Prince Edward, heir to Britain’s throne.
Charlotte’s had her eye on Edward, and soon they’re snogging all over the campus lawn and common rooms—while Libby busies herself with settling into her studies and navigating the complicated social code of Sussex Park. Eager to put her sister at ease, Charlotte encourages Libby to hang out with her new boyfriend. And much to everyone’s surprise, Libby and Edward hit it off.
Actually, they really hit it off.
In this juicy, contemporary girl-meets-prince story, two sisters find themselves at odds over the same boy amid high-society expectations and paparazzi scandals. In the end, there may be a price to pay for romancing the throne . . . and more than one path to happily ever after.
If you’re not familiar with Nadine, do yourself a favour and check out her website.
She’s not only funny, smart and an accomplished writer – and reality TV star – but she’s also a devoted royal fan who even spent some time on a trip to London stalking Prince Harry… Here’s how Nadine herself describes her book.
It’s called ROMANCING THE THRONE and is about two sisters at English boarding school in a love triangle with the future King. (Think: Kate & Pippa, if Pippa dated William first.) My husband hates it when I say “it’s blah! meets blah!” but sometimes I am lazy, so: it’s The Other Boleyn Girl meets Gossip Girl. I’m a huge royalty fan, spent some time in England working in the polo world, and also VERY briefly worked for a fancy royal (shh), so I drew on all that experience to create a fictional read that I hope you find juicy.
Do what we did – and what we like to think Kate would do – and pre-order the book now so you get it delivered as soon as it is released!
