ROYAL HEIR (Westerly Billionaire Series, Book 3) by Ruth Cardello
Publication Date: April 17, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Ruth Cardello, the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Up for Heir, turns a fairy-tale romance into a sizzling bedtime story.
Rachelle Westerly needs a break. After years of acting as the family peacekeeper, she’s finally ready to take a step back. Her movie-star brother has offered her the perfect escape. But on the very first day of her vacation, she steps onto a red carpet and straight into the arms of a real-life prince—and the promise of just the kind of flash and fortune that tore her own family apart.
As the soon-to-be leader of Vandorra, Prince Magnus de Bartelebon always gets what he wants—and the regal bad boy wants the sweet American schoolteacher. Although he should be announcing his engagement of convenience to a neighboring princess, Rachelle is the one he desires in his bed and by his side.
While the drop-dead gorgeous Magnus might be almost everything she craves, Rachelle can’t help but think that falling for him would be a royal mistake. He may be ruling a kingdom one day, but she’s in charge of her heart. And he’ll have to win it with more than a lap of luxury—as inviting as it is.
I truly enjoyed this romantic tale between Prince Magnus and school teacher, Rachelle. It held a nice balance between contemporary romance and romantic suspense that was fun to read. The characters were easy to like, even Magnus showed enough of his tender side to get me past his domineering and entitled actions. The side characters added an interesting depth as well. Yes, some things fell into place too easily, but that’s because it was a fun and spicy adult fairytale.
