Publisher Description

A British bad boy and a runaway princess bride collide for a tempting time…


Being a rock god isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s become a soulless grind. Which is why I’m now on my mate’s houseboat, far away from the spotlight, hoping to find my way back to the music.

Yeah. Not gonna happen.

I’ve just discovered a stowaway on board, and I can’t believe who she is. A bloody princess? And the prim little woman won’t leave the boat, so I make an offer to scare her off—a no-strings fling.

Only she says yes.

I say no, and she promptly locks herself in my bedroom.

I swear I’m dropping her off at the next port.

She’s trouble wrapped in a pretty virginal package, and I know I shouldn’t touch.


I’m a runaway bride trying to make a clean escape. But when Jackson Walker discovers me hiding on his boat—after I get over the shock of stumbling upon a rock star’s hideaway—I immediately know he’s exactly what I need. He’s wild, rough around the edges, perfect.

My family would never approve. The press would skewer us. I still want him.

He’s the antidote to my tightly prescribed life.

But can he ever see past my title to the woman I long to be?

Jackson and Emma

Royal Darling is another fun and exciting story, This is book three and just as wonderful as the first two. I absolutely love Kylie Gilmore she has a way with her words that grab you and pull you into her stories and this was no different. The characters are most definitely sexy and very entertaining and for me very adorable. I just have to say I loved Jackson and Emma they were a very delightful surprise their bantering was just so much fun it was a story that kept me hooked till the end. All I can say is wow another great book for some summer reading. I 100% loved and recommend this great story. I can’t wait for more from The Rourkes. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book and fell for it I had to buy it.

Emma and Jackson

Royal Darling is the perfect name for Princess Emma story in the Rourke series by Kylie Gilmore. Emma is a Royal Darling perfectly molded in the image of her mother and engaged since 16 to a prince from another kingdom to marry after her 25 birthday. On her wedding day she was given the chance to runaway and she stows away on a boat of bad boy rocker Jackson Walker. Emma’s story was my favorite! l loved how Emma is finding her voice and her own personality with the support of Jackson. Family and duty play an important part in Emma life plus her over protective brothers. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series of the Rourke of Prince Lucas. This book is one not to miss reading! I received this book as an arc for an honest review of it
