A Royal Engagement : The Young Royals book 1 by Emma Lea

A Royal Engagement (The Young Royals #1)Despite being the second child of the King and Queen of Merveille, Alyssabeth thought that if she kept a low profile she could stay out of the media’s glaring spotlight and live a relatively normal life. That was until her father, the King, and her brother, the Crown Prince, are both killed in a hunting accident. 
Her dream of joining the UN is no more and instead she needs to return to the small European country of her birth to pick up where her father and brother left off. Her Harvard degree in International Relations is forfeit and in it’s place she must become Queen, that is if the misogynistic Parliament can see past their prejudices. 
Not much has changed in the small country in her four year absence, but there are two noticeable differences. Her brother’s two best friends Will Darkly and Jordan Wicks have grown up into two very intriguing men. Jordan practically sweeps her off her feet from the moment she steps off the plane, but Will’s more reserved, darkly intense interest in her gives her tingles. 
Alyssa isn’t sure she is cut out to be Queen, but she knows that she wants to do her father and brother proud, so she is willing to give it her best shot, even if it means going toe to toe with Parliament. And then there is the small matter of her needing to be married in order to fulfil her birthright and take her place as the Head of State.

My review: A Royal Engagement : The Young Royals book 1 by Emma Lea


A Royal Engagement is a nice clean romantic fast read,  Had drama, intrigue at the palace, danger, and romance.

It opens right to the drama. Alyssabeth was sitting in a class at Harvard,  when her security went in high alert and got her out of class and on private airplane.  She had no idea what happening till she heard Aurora on Phoenix one.

Her father the King and her brother the Crown Prince were dead on a hunting trip.  It might have been murder.  She was no longer the spare who was living quietly a college student.  She was now the Crown Princess soon to be Queen of Merveille.

She was met by the good looking Jordan Wicks her brother's good friend from childhood.  He was now home and stationed at the Palace.
Her brother's other good friend was Will Darkly  He grew up handsome too.  Alyssabeth got tingles from him.

Everything has changed for Alyss.  She has to get advisers, lady's waiting.  She is sent to meetings for both the Queen and King roles.  Her country had never had a Queen before.

This is the first book by Emma Lea that I have read it was worth the price and I will look for more books from her.
