My Review:

 You all know by now that I love Emma St. Clair's writing. I have not read her earlier works (yet), but I have loved everything I have read of hers in the last year or so. I have been looking forward to this one since I bought it (December 2021), and I am happy to say it didn't disappoint!

The point is, without a journey, without some struggle, a few challenges, and some metaphorical dragons-which Mummy will explain to you later-the happily-ever-after wouldn't be so sweet.

Royally (re) Arranged sucked me in from the first scene. I loved how it was from the dad's perspective (which is so rare). As the scene continues, I notice that Serafina is the mom, but we are not told who the dad is because that is obviously part of the story!

Is duty still considered duty when it's something you want to do?

While this is a romantic comedy, there is amazing depth to the story. All three of our main characters have nicknames, but not is all as it seems. As we learn more about them and their backgrounds, we understand who they are and what has shaped them. I loved the character growth of Serafina and Rafe. Poor Callum didn't seem to learn much.

Honestly, Prince of Darkness would be a more fitting title for the duke.

Attacking swans, tablecloth dresses, strawberries, Uncle Italian Moleneck, stoic men, swoon-worthy hero, The Dane, and a super sweet ending makes this a story you don't want to miss!!! I did not want this story to end, and just typing this, I want to read it again! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. You all don't want to miss this (yeah, I am repeating myself, it is that important). And, in case you are worried, it is not a love triangle!




#3 -Romance with enemies to lovers 

Synopsis (from Goodreads): 

There WILL be a royal wedding. The only question--who will be my groom?

An arranged marriage isn’t the worst fate for a princess like me. Especially because I’ve been in love with my intended groom since we were children.

But when my prince shows up with an American girlfriend instead of an engagement ring, all arrangements are off.

The clock is nearing midnight--I won’t turn into a pumpkin, but if I’m not wed by summer’s end, I’ll forfeit my kingdom.

Just your typical royal dilemma.

Out of sheer desperation, I make a deal with a devilish duke. Rafe de Silva is the prince’s rival and has a plan so ridiculous it just might work.

One moment, Rafe seems to relish making the prince jealous.

And the next… he’s making me question everything with his words, his touch, and his ability to melt my Ice Princess persona.

I’m not always given the luxury of choice, but now I have a huge one to make. I only hope I don't lose my crown, my heart, or myself in the process…

Royally Rearranged is a sizzling, swoony, closed-door romantic comedy.
