American Royals (Paperback)Katharine McGee (author)
Street-smart princesses and wannabe consorts light up this glamourous regal blockbuster, as a quartet of strong young women party and scheme their way through the royal court. Wonderfully escapist and riotously entertaining, American Royals is the perfect feel-good read to brighten any long winter.
Crazy Rich Asians meets Gossip Girl in this completely addictive and gloriously fun modern-day royal fairytale... Meet the Washingtons - the most scandalous royal family ever!
HRH Princess Samantha has always been a royal rebel. She's the spare not the heir, so no one minds too much who she dates or how hard she parties.
It helps that her sister, Princess Beatrice, is literally perfect. She's demure, sweet and beautiful, and she knows that the crown always comes first - no matter what her heart might really want.
But they're not the only ones with their eye on the throne. Daphne Deighton might be 'newly noble' but she won Prince Jefferson's heart once, and she'll do anything to get back into the court's favour - and his bed.
If only she knew that her competition was a common nobody - plain little Nina Gonzalez, the daughter of the king's secretary.
Together these four young women must navigate the drama, gossip, scheming and sizzling romance of the most glorious court in the world. There's everything to play for - but there can only be one queen.

As a fan of Katharine McGee’s The Thousandth Floor series, I was eager to read American Royals and see whether it would be as glitzy and as treacherous as her previous books, and it didn’t disappoint.
