Teri Wilson’s Royals series returns with this charming and witty retelling of the timeless classic MGM film Royal Wedding starring Fred Astaire.
When Asher Reed, an American classical musician, is hired as a last minute replacement to perform at the royal wedding of Princess Amelia in Great Britain, he’s hoping he can shake his recent bout with performance anxiety long enough to get through the festivities and get his career back on track. Little does he know that his life is about to change forever.
As a guest of Buckingham Palace, he knows he has no business even speaking to the princess, but he’s completely awed by her beauty and more than a little intrigued by her rebellious spirit. Still, he definitely knows he has no business kissing her silly at the fitting of her wedding gown. He’s there to perform, not cause a royal scandal. But when he stumbles upon her groom’s appalling secret, the fate of the princess and the British Crown suddenly rest squarely in his cello-playing hands....
With Teri Wilson’s signature “endearingly charming and delightfully sizzling” (USA TODAY bestselling author Nina Bocci) prose, Royally Wed is a delightful whirlwind romance that will leave you breathless and have you out of your seat for a standing ovation.
Wilson's third Royals contemporary (after Royally Romanov) features an unusual romance between a princess and a professional cello player. When appendicitis befalls famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma, talented young Asher Reed is hired as Ma's replacement to play a cello solo at the royal wedding of Great Britain's Princess Amelia and Duke Holden Beckett. Asher's desire to prove himself as a cellist is complicated by his fianc e having left him for his ex-mentor, Jeremy March, who also happens to be the conductor of the orchestra Asher will perform with at the wedding. The hotels are all booked for the momentous royal wedding, so Asher is given a room at Buckingham Palace a room that just happens to be next to that of Princess Amelia. As Amelia and Asher become better acquainted through witty banter and friendly flirting, he sees beyond her royal exterior to the woman underneath. She can't help but blossom in Asher's presence because his allure and friendship are unlike any she has known, and she must decide whether it is more important to be a dutiful princess and dispel her "Princess Naughty" moniker or to follow her heart. Romantic angst and sizzling sensuality are at the heart of this page-turner.
