Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.
But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.
As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

“There are meetings in books that stand out, that alter the course of the story. Profound encounters between the characters when one soul seems to say to the other, “There you are–I’ve been looking for you.””
“He’s bold and confident; I think that’s my favorite part. The way he moves, how he touches me and himself–how he’s sure of just what to do. And he knows it. It’s beautiful and thrilling at the same time.”
“I’ve never had someone who was just mine, body and soul–mine to protect and hold and love. And that’s what Sarah is…she belongs to me now. We belong to each other.”
Sweet. Swoon-Worthy. Utterly Romantic. That is how I would describe Royally Matched. Royally Matched is a fun and entertaining read that will consume your heart and leave you with a smile on your face.
Royally Matched is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Henry and Sarah. Henry has no clue or desire to be king. No matter how hard he tries, he always screws up. Needless to say, he’s not handling himself well. Since he knows his wild and crazy times are numbered, he decides to go all out with a bang…A royal reality dating show to be exact. Think the bachelor, but with a soon to be king twist. It’s all supposed to be fun and games…That is until Henry meets Sarah. Sarah is unlike any woman that he’s ever met. She’s real and shy to a fault, but don’t let that shyness fool you. She isn’t afraid of anything and doesn’t want anything from the prince. She is totally refreshing. The more time that Henry spends with Sarah, the more he is drawn to her. Before either of them knows it, they develop a connection meant for the books…..
What can I say about Royally Matched, other than I just loved this book. It was fun. It was flirty. It was sexy as hell and filled with swoon worthy moments. I fell for Henry straight away and loved every second of his story. One of the things that I loved about Henry was how real he was. He wasn’t the perfect prince. He knew he was flawed and despite himself wanted to be better. And when he loved, he loved with everything that he was. And I loved his devotion to Sarah, the way he cared for her and her needs. He never pressured her or tried to change her. And when Henry messes up, he really steps up to the plate and fights for what he wants.
Royally Matched is a fantastic addition to Royally Series. I loved getting swept up in Henry and Sarah’s story. Their story was everything that I wanted and then some. I just adored it.
