The lives of the Wessco royal family have always been extraordinary. Abounding in power and wealth, and marked by moments of soul-searing passion, exquisite love, and tragic loss.
In this collection of short stories, set during the time period of the Royally books and beyond, we explore the moments that helped shape these characters into the irresistible heroes and heroines readers have come to know and cherish.
We meet Prince Nicholas and Henry’s parents, Prince Thomas and Lady Calista; we see the struggle to balance family relationships with the demands of the monarchy; and we continue the story of Queen Lenora and Prince Edward, whose deep, abiding love lasts beyond a lifetime.
Royally Remembered is not a standalone—it is a companion novella meant to be read after Royally Screwed, Royally Matched, Royally Endowed, and Royally Yours.
Such Deep Feels
I had to read this all the way through, without a stop! Getting further glimpses into the Pembrooks wrenched tears to my eyes with all of the poignancy, good tears. Edward and Leonora had a love that was truly eternal, and that love sustained them
through some terrible times. That was a legacy that their son and grandsons also shared. Keep tissue handy.
Get ready for a really good cry
This book is only for readers who have already read the Royally series by Emma Chase. It wouldn’t work as a stand-alone novel, given that each chapter is based on an event in the lives of the royal family of Wessco, which had been referenced in one of the earlier novels as well as a few which tie up some loose ends in the family story. Several of these chapters tell of family losses and are very emotional, I found myself crying through at least half of the book! Ms. Chase did an amazing job fleshing out these experiences, leaving the reader with a much greater understanding of the life experiences which shaped the family’s character. I found myself feeling more empathy for Queen Lenora than I had previously experienced. I devoured most of this book in a single night and with half a box of tissues. If you have loved Lenora, Edward, Nicholas, Olivia, Henry, Sarah, Logan, and Ellie as much as I do, you will love this book of scenes from the past of the Pembrook Royal Family. I am voluntarily posting this review after reading an advanced complementary copy.
