American Royals II: Majesty (Hardcover)
Other Books in Series
This is book number 2 in the American Royals series.
The sequel to American Royals sweeps you right back into the world where, rather than George Washington becoming President, he instead becomes the king. Readers enjoy the excitement and nerves of an upcoming royal wedding, while also stressing over the sabotage, dissapointment, and threats that the characters face. Reminiscent of Meghan Markles' real-life journey with an overinvolved press and the malicious image that the media once portrayed our now-beloved Princess Kate, readers will delight in the highs and lows of the American Royal life. Highly recommended.— Caroline S
Is America ready for its first queen? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan and Will and Kate, you'll love this sequel to the New York Times bestseller that imagines America's own royal family--and all the drama and heartbreak that entails. Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown. Perfect for fans of Red, White, and Royal Blue and The Royal We.
Power is intoxicating. Like first love, it can leave you breathless. Princess Beatrice was born with it. Princess Samantha was born with less. Some, like Nina Gonzalez, are pulled into it. And a few will claw their way in. Ahem, we're looking at you Daphne Deighton.
As America adjusts to the idea of a queen on the throne, Beatrice grapples with everything she lost when she gained the ultimate crown. Samantha is busy living up to her "party princess" persona...and maybe adding a party prince by her side. Nina is trying to avoid the palace--and Prince Jefferson--at all costs. And a dangerous secret threatens to undo all of Daphne's carefully laid "marry Prince Jefferson" plans.
A new reign has begun....
