    So for sure I did this book a disservice for putting it down for several weeks, but also . . . it got too convoluted by the end. I can't really tell you what exactly happened in regard to the non-romance plot. But oh, there were some fun pieces here. Someday my royal romance will co...

    I was expecting more of a romcom than a murder mystery with a side of extreme chemistry and I wish we'd gotten to really know Thea and Nick more than we did, but I still loved this and had so much fun reading and couldn't put it down. It was the book I needed right now and I'll always ...

    DNF 40%....I gave this a good chance to turn around but even with skimming this wasn't for me. I felt no chemistry between Thea and Nick and expected more romance and less running around trying trying to be spies ...

    I wanted to live this book. The elements were there. But I felt like I was supposed to believe in a romance that was never really seemed to develop between Thea and Nick was there. That the government would let a little thing like embezzlement go. And in the end, the bad guy never real...

    Rating: ???? I expected this to be the light, fluffy contemporary I thought I needed after reading a such a hard-packing book (The Book Thief), but it wasn't that at all, in the best possible way. Summary Princess Theodora Isabella Victoria of Drieden of the Roy...

    As an avid Royal fan (British and other European), I always enjoy reading fictitious romance type books based on them. I listened to the audio version of this and it was an entertaining experience. Princess Theodora of Dreidan has been left at the altar. She doesn't understand wh...

    I had been anticipating a light hearted romance, full of heat and not too much more. What I read however was so much more than that. Set in a small kingdom, the book tells the story of a jilted Royal princess, and her determination to discover just what happened to the man she was ...

    Aug 03, 2018
    ~*Full review here on The Bent Bookworm!*~ Fluffy. A little bit funny, a lot ridiculous. Requires much more suspension of disbelief than my usual picks, but even still it was entertaining enough to finish. The title feels a bit misleading, as Thea never really seems to run away?sh...

    3.5 stars This book was put on my radar by a good friend who loved it and after reading the synopsis, I was all over it. I liked Thea and Nick. She?s struggling, but loves her family and the history of the monarchy. He?s gruff and gruff and just so very gruff. Together they ...

    After being jilted at the alter by her fiance in the most public way imaginable (a royal wedding), Thea returns from four months of seclusion determined to get her life back on track. But when taking an unapproved jaunt into town to burn off steam, she meets the sultry, crude Nick Came...

    I absolutely lovedáThe Royal We, so I had to get my hands on The Royal Runaway after reading the blurb that pretty much said if you loved the one, then you'd be a fan of this book! Plus, I'm royal-obsessed anyway, whether it's a real-life royal or a made up one, so I'm all about a boo...

    Quite honestly speaking, The Royal Runaway was probably one of my most disappointing reads of 2018. In theory it should be the kind of book that works for me. We have a princess breaking the rules, a sexy scot, a mystery, A LOT OF things that would draw me in. In actuality, The Royal R...

    THIS is the princess book I've always wanted to read! The usual fluff, and jewels and gowns and balls? NOT part of this story! This book has some serious girl-power, with a kick-a$$ princess who is seriously OVER being just that. Meet Thea, Princess bad-A$$ of Dreiden, who takes no BS,...

    When I saw this book compared to The Royal We, I knew I had to read it. While it did not live up to as high of a standard as promised, it was still a quick, enjoyable jaunt through an imaginary land with an imaginary monarchy that conveniently produced a princess to star in said novel....

    Four stars for this one! ?The Royal Runaway? brings back the nostalgia of Nancy Drew except in this story Nancy and Ned Nickerson actually have a romantic relationship. ? Thea is a princess. And just a few months ago, she?s stood up at the alter. After taking some advise...

    ***4.5 Stars!*** Do you love a slow burn romance, with sexual tension and sarcastic banter? How about romance with a side of mystery? The Royal Runaway by Lindsay Emory has all of that, plus intriguing characters, and a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat while snorting w...

    Being a fan of all things Royal and especially Royal romances, I had high hopes for it and it didn't disappoint. It takes the usual Royal trope and flips it on it's ear. It's got banter, mystery, romance and a sharply developed plot. Thea aka Princess Theodora is engaging, whip-smart a...

    1.5 stars Thank you Netgalley and Gallery Books for the review copy! To give you a clue on how I felt about this book, THE ROYAL RUNAWAY ruined my post-Royal Wedding haze. Yes, the Royal Wedding that happened less than a week ago (per writing this review) for Prince Harry and Meg...

    3.5 Stars If you?re looking for a silly romantic comedy with just a touch of suspense to escape into for a few hours, this is your book. It?s advertised for fans of The Princess Diaries and I think that?s the perfect way to describe this. The plot may differ but that entertain...

    ?? 4.5 stars! ?? Set in the fictional European monarchy of Drieden, The Royal Runaway reads like an Old Hollywood whodunit caper set in modern times. The story is part mystery, part suspense, and part romance, all told in the fresh voice of Lindsay Emory. Princess Theodor...

    Last week on one of the hottest days of summer, I took a road trip with a couple of friends and we decided that ice cream would be the perfect treat to cool us off. As we were driving, all of us were talking about what flavor of ice cream we were going to get. I was torn, do I get my s...

    Song for summary: You Make Me Feel... by Cobra Starship This was a slow read for me. The characters were mysterious, royal, and well connected; while the plot was an action-packed adventure brimming with politics and romance. I didn't love the characters to be honest, I felt a disco...

    I?m on the fence about this one. I didn?t NOT like it, but I didn?t love it either. It started off pretty good- lonely princess meets hot rugged Scot in a dingy bar, everything's pretty great until? whoops! Turns out he?s a spy. That?s blackmailing her. Well, isn?t that a...
