THE ROYAL RUNAWAY By Lindsay Emory
On sale October 9, 2018!
Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Royal House Laurent is so over this princess thing.
After her fiancé jilted her on their wedding day, she’s finally back home after spending four months in exile—aka it’s back to press conferences, public appearances, and putting on a show for the Driedish nation as the perfect princess they expect her to be. But Thea’s sick of duty. After all, that’s what got her into this mess in the first place.
So when she sneaks out of the palace and meets a sexy Scot named Nick in a local bar, she relishes the chance to be a normal woman for a change. But just as she thinks she’s found her Prince Charming for the night, he reveals his intentions are less than honorable: he’s the brother of her former fiancé, a British spy, and he’s not above blackmail. As Thea reluctantly joins forces with Nick to find out what happened the day her fiancé disappeared, together they discover a secret that could destroy a centuries-old monarchy and change life as they know it.
Funny, fast-paced, and full of more twists and turns than the castle Thea lives in, The Royal Runaway is a fresh romantic comedy that will leave you cheering for the modern-day royal who chucks the rulebook aside to create her own happily-ever-after.

This was a fun read! When I saw that this book was described as The Princess Diaries meets James Bond with some Jason Bourne thrown in, I signed up for this blog tour right away!
I love the sassy and intelligent princess. Throw in a sexy Scot with some secrets and we have a pretty awesome duo! This book had so many twists and turns and is the perfect “who dun it?” Just when you THINK you have it all figured out a new clue appears and keeps you guessing! I will say, I would love to have more back story on Nick. There was just enough detail to know about him but I kind of feel like it was pretty vague. I’m very anti spoilers so you will have to read the book yourself to understand my meaning of that statement.
Overall, this was an easy to follow mystery with plenty of humor and action. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to family and friends!
