The first book in this USA Today bestselling author’s delicious new Hidden Royals series, in which a princess in exile searches for her lost brother—and falls for the devastatingly charming scoundrel sent to thwart her.
A hidden princess…
Princess Regine Elise Adelaide d’Orleans is no longer a princess, but she’s also no commoner. She’s obscure French royalty, exiled to England in the aftermath of the revolution. She lives as a glorified houseguest of the British Royal family, guarded and gilded, but also trapped.
The cynical outcast…
Mr. Killian Crewes serves as the “Royal Fixer” in St. James’s Palace, making messy situations disappear. As the second son of an earl, cleaning up indiscretions was hardly Killian’s goal in life, but his mother’s notoriety makes him less of a peer, and more a member of staff.
A royal scandal…
When Princess Elise spots her long-lost brother in a crowded market, she's determined to find him. But her search puts the palace in an uncomfortable position, and they hire Killian to seduce the princess to distract her from meddling. Except, no one anticipated that Killian would be the one seduced instead. Now he’s risking everything for the lonely princess—his job, her reputation, and both of their hearts.
Its own type of wholesome and fun
Little yet mighty and henchman yet cinnamon roll fall (sideways) in love in “Say Yes to the Princes,” book one of the Hidden Royals series by Charis Michaels!!!
Exiled Princess Elise starts asking questions to solve a mystery after a chance sighting on the Road to Land’s End. Royal fixer Killian Crewes’ next assignment requires distracting Her Serene Highness by any means necessary for the benefit of the crown.
I love the banter and chemistry between Elise and Killian! The attraction is definitely simmering and boils over for a bit throughout the book! We learn more about each MC through forced proximity adding to the intimacy of their relationship!
This book has its own type of wholesome created by Michaels’ secondary characters, specifically Killian’s relations, which I love! Also, Killian is someone to be wary of, but he is goal-oriented for those he loves!
Although this book mentions a dire part of the French revolution, this book is fun and a fast read.
I absolutely loved the frantic gesture followed by a barging gesture at the end! It was dramatic yet romantic, and so public!
If you enjoy road trips, sad boys, strong FMCs, or physical touch is your love language, then I highly recommend this swoon-worthy book!!!
Thank you to Net Galley, Avon, and Harper Voyager US for the ARC in exchange for a honest review.
