An Off-Limits Romance
By Ella James
From USA Today bestseller Ella James…
After that close-up of his package on the sailboat in Morocco, TMZ started calling him Crown Jewels.
Not that I keep track of Prince Liam. Definitely don’t stalk him online like my friends do.
I’m out of that scene now. My family’s reality show might still be running, but I’ve been off-screen for a while. When people pass me on the sidewalk, they might squint, but most of them don’t scream “Lucy Rhodes” and ask about my love of Lucky Charms or how my broken toe healed.
Prince Liam—my stalking his Instagram—that’s just for fun. It’s my dirty little secret. Trust me, I’m the only woman in the world who doesn’t actually want him.
Except I’m back in the Hamptons for the first time in two years. I’m at a party, and Prince Manwhore is here as well. I tell myself that smile has no effect on me. That his ridiculous charisma is a parlor trick I see right through.
After our one night together, no one knows that I succumbed.
It doesn’t matter. It meant nothing.
Not until I see those two pink lines.
Crown Jewels is an 80,000-word contemporary romance novel with no cliffhanger ending. It is being offered at a reduced price for a limited time during release week only.
The one thing I have come to realize is that Ella James is one of those authors that can write any kind of sub genre romance and is guaranteed to be page turner. She has once again held me captive with her story.
I am not a huge fan of royal romances. Crown Jewels is not the typical royal romance. It’s a story of two very real people struggling within their elite world. They are struggling to maintain a normal existence where they are seen as individuals rather than an image. Both of these beautiful people are hiding secrets, trying to stay one step ahead of the press and social media, while trying to find a healthy balance within their own personal lives.
Prince Liam is not your ordinary prince. He’s a certified playboy that’s known for partying and womanizing. He doesn’t have the usual royal duties most princes in line to become king have. He won’t become king until he is forty. His country is small and very self sufficient. There are some political differences with the royals and the parliament but on the most part those issues are not the problem. He spent his childhood in American boarding schools. The American influence has shaped his views, behaviors, and future desires.
Lucy Rhodes is the youngest child in the famous Reality Royal Family of the Hamptons. Her family’s prime time reality show gives the Kardashians a run for their money. Lucy left the family show and has chosen to live out of the spotlight for the last two years. After a disastrous relationship she’s been licking her wounds and finding herself on horse ranch in Colorado.
A summer visit to the Hamptons to catch up with her childhood friends turns out to be a life changing event for Lucy. She meets the despicable Prince Liam, who she secretly follows on instagram and snap chat, and ends up having a memorable one night stand. A one night stand that leaves her pregnant. Now she has to tell Prince Liam about the RBB, the royal bastard baby. She’s prepared to raise the baby by herself. What she wasn’t prepared for is the real man that Prince Liam is.
As Lucy and Liam form a beautiful friendship that is leading to a romantic relationship, their secrets could destroy a beautiful beginning. Lucy has to tell Liam about the baby. Liam is hiding his own secrets that could destroy both Lucy and the baby.
As for the rest…. READ IT YOURSELF! CROWN JEWELS BY ELLA JAMES is outstanding!
