Three prince romances that—unlike #aChristmasPrince—you’ll actually want to finish
A Christmas Prince. Netflix's original holiday movie is making the social media rounds as a flick "so bad it's good". It's practically already a classic. And if you haven't seen it, thank your lucky stars and keep it that way. I mean, what romantic doesn't love a good fairy tale with royalty and a happy ending? But I'm telling you, A Christmas Prince is not 'so bad it's good', it's just bad—and not even bad enough to make a drinking game out of. Save your brain cells—and your Friday night—for a few royal romances you'll actually enjoy. The book is always better anyway, right? Here are three princely contemporary romances where the only thing bad are the bad boys that flirt their way [...]

Royally Screwed (Royally #1) by Emma Chase #BookReview
This story is an absolute delight, a guaranteed roller coaster of passion and privilege and charm and want and lust and soft hearts in gilded cages. Author Emma Chase had me laughing and crying and yearning throughout the entire read. Royally Screwed is easily one of the best romances of 2016.

Review: Iced (Dani O’Malley #1) by Karen Marie Moning
Dublin. One year after the walls between Faerie and Earth fell and a third of the planet's human population was wiped out in a single night. Dani O'Malley is a sidhe-seer, an enhanced human who can move at super speed and who has suffered more than her share of tragedy and abuse in her very short life.

Review: The Breaker’s Concubine (Kyrimian Cycle #1) by Ann Mayburn
Lured into a trap by a vindictive royal, Prince Devnar finds himself a pleasure slave in a training house and is desperately determined to keep emotional distance from his Mistress. Melania has been given an ultimatum: have this man ready to be the empress's concubine in one month or face her own banishment and death. With mutual attraction growing between them and a vicious trap hanging over their heads, this pair has a hard road ahead. (har har *grin*) The Breaker's Concubine is a recommended read!
"I like the format of the reviews and it helps me decide if a book is a ‘go get this now’, ‘wait until you’re in the mood’, ‘maybe- if there’s nothing else to read’ or ‘probably not the book match for me’. I eagerly look to see what quotes are presented and I find the ‘if you like-’ comparisons possibly as telling as the actual review. Way to go, guys!"
