A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.
Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?
As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.

So cute !
I felt like this was similar to the old Marquita Valentine! When I first found her, I couldn't get enough of her books. Lately I find myself reading her books out of feelings of obligation, but I truly enjoyed this book! Charlotte is just so precious & Brooks is indeed the villain, disguising his Prince Charming underneath! I enjoyed reading of them, & I can't wait to read Imogen and her bodyguards book!
Swept Me Away!
Captivating! This was a Sexy, Sweet, Fun, Royal Romance. Royal romances are what all our fairy tales are made of and I couldn't and didn't want to put this down, the chemistry between Princess Charlotte and Brooks Walker is off the charts and this story takes you along with them on a whirlwind seduction in a forbidden, sexy romance that was full of charm and passion.
Charlotte Sinclair is the wallflower princess, as the spare heir to her twin sister Queen Imogene. She is tired of being a prisoner in a lovely gilded cage, and not being allowed any sort of freedom. She has always been the good responsible one, but that is about to change. She has decided to break the rules for some of her own happiness and I was cheering her on.
Brooks Walker, is the enemy as CEO of Walker Media, he is the most unsuitable man in existence for a princess like Charlotte since he is the person that exposed her whole family's secrets to the entire world. So why is she so taken by this man? Could it be his cocky, confident, million, watt smile, gleaming, blue eyes fringed with heavy dark lashes, his full lips, high cheek bones, or that he is so handsome, maybe it is that he is 6 foot 3 inches and so fit, so sexy, with his divine abs.
Charlotte has had a crush on Brooks from the first time she saw him. After the best kiss in the history of kisses between them, Charlotte proposes a strictly exclusive physical affair to Brooks. Their relationship is fun, deliciously sexy, and I loved getting caught up in their affair and watching them fall. But when Brooks is blackmailed will he betray Charlotte's trust?
You don't want to miss this fun, deliciously sexy and sizzling affair between these two! The heat will scorch your fingers as you turn the pages. So if you love Royal Stories, love, sizzling Romance, sizzling Chemistry, as well as intrigue and blackmail this is a must read for sure! LOVED IT! I Highly Recommend this Captivating Romance!

Enjoyable story and series
This is Charlotte's story and the journey to be with the man that has intrigued her online and in person. I enjoyed the back and forth between them. Watching Brooks realize that he was in further than he thought was definitely fun. Royal Affair stands alone although there are elements that cross over from book 1. The series is proving fun, and I look forward to the next book.
