A seat on the throne or a place in her heart?
Greyson Montgomery dreams of a simple life, but as the crown prince of Aldora, simple is not in his future. Before ascending the throne on Christmas Eve, Greyson is given one month to explore how the other half lives. Armed with a few hundred dollars and a fake backstory, Greyson flies to Savannah, Georgia, to see if he has what it takes to chase the American Dream.
Scarlett Calhoun is a Southern Belle with a heart as big as a Georgia peach. When she meets the charming construction worker, Greyson, it isn’t long before she is embracing the holiday cheer. Soon, she’s teaching him how to cook, falling for his exotic accent and soulful eyes, and joining him on picnic lunches where they talk for hours.
With Christmas Eve nearing, Greyson must fly back to Aldora and either abdicate the throne, or take his rightful place as king. Will he ignore his birthright to remain with Scarlett or will she be royally abandoned?
Fischer (the Elton Hall Chronicles) and McKnight (What Happens in the Highlands) team up for this lighthearted royal romance with a twist: the royal would rather not be royal. Determined to abdicate the throne of Aldora, Prince Greyson Montgomery travels from Aldora, an island kingdom off the coast of England, to Savannah, Ga., where he finds a job as a construction worker and meets Savannah socialite Scarlett Calhoun. As Scarlett falls for Greyson and his appealing, caring nature, he is impressed by her easygoing, charitable attitude. Ironically, Greyson's omission of his royal status makes him less appealing to Scarlett's mother, who seems to believe that a construction worker is not good enough for her daughter, adding a possible impediment to their relationship. When Scarlett decides to spend Christmas with Greyson in Aldora and he finally tells her about his royal heritage, they both must decide whether the revelation of his princely status will affect the possibility of their future together. Fans of prince and commoner romances will enjoy this variation on the theme.
Royally Abandoned by Kelsey McKnight is Greyson Montgomery, crown prince of Aldora, and southern belle Scarlett Calhoun’s story.
Scarlett and Greyson were both raised in a privileged manner. Greyson of course was raised on a different level with being the crown prince of Aldora. They met in an unusual way and their paths keep crossing. Greyson and Scarlett want to live more of a normal life but will they be able to make their own way? This is a cute, sweet, and fairy tale type read.

The Prince and the Southern Belle
Greyson wanted to be loved for himself, not for his family’s status and money, so he gave up being a royal prince and future king to be a carpenter in Savannah where he met southern belle whose family came from money so she could spend her days with charity work Scarlett. I loved Scarlett’s rescue dog Blitz and that Greyson was an artist with wood. Her friend Betsy was a riot and deserves her own romance.
