Princess Lenora Celeste Beatrice Arabella Pembrook had an unusual childhood. She was raised to be a Queen—the first Queen of Wessco. It’s a big deal. When she’s crowned at just nineteen, the beautiful young monarch is prepared to rule. She’s charming, clever, confident and cunning. What she isn’t…is married. It’s her advising council’s first priority. It’s what Parliament is demanding, and what her people want. Lenora has no desire to tie herself to a man—particularly one who only wants her for her crown. But compromises must be made and royals must do their duty. Even Queens. Especially them. ** Years ago, Edward Langdon Richard Dorian Rourke, walked away from his title and country. Now he’s an adventurer—climbing mountains, exploring jungles, going wherever he wants, when he wants—until family devotion brings him home. And a sacred promise keeps him there. To Edward, the haughty, guarded little Queen is intriguing, infuriating…and utterly captivating. Wanting her just might drive him mad—or become his greatest adventure. ** Within the cold, stone walls of the royal palace—mistrust threatens, wills clash, and an undeniable, passionate love will change the future of the monarchy forever. Every dynasty has a beginning. Every legend starts with a story. This is theirs.
If you have been a fan of the Royally series as I have been then you have wanted Queen Lenora’s story as much as I have. She was a strong presence in the books as well as the love she had for her late husband Edward. I wanted to know more about both of these characters and we finally get their story in Royally Yours. I have to admit I got choked up more than once while reading it because we know in the previous books that he had already passed away but you could feel the love she had for him when she would speak to his painting.
I knew that Queen Lenora was going to be a strong character and she was. She needed someone like Edward by her side not to guide her or try to tell her how to rule, but to bring out the softer side of who she was, to make her laugh, to help her live. Edward may have at one time been a wanderer, but when it comes to his relationship with his Lenny, you can tell that he was made for her and she for him. I loved reading about their love story, and that is exactly what it is, but it is also a story about a strong woman proving that she can run her kingdom just as well, if not better, than a man.
If Emma Chase continues to write about my favorite royal family, I would read each and every book. In fact, I feel a total series reread is needed because I absolutely love these books and I loved Royally Yours. If you are a fan of this series then this is a must read for sure!
