Publisher's Summary

Georgina, Princess of Wales, has always known her destiny, but she never expected duty to call so soon. When her father dies suddenly, she is called back from her Royal Navy post to assume the crown. While the people acclaim their new Queen, Great Britain's first openly gay monarch, all George feels is the isolation of her station.

Beatrice Elliot's staunch anti-monarchist views have always been a point of gentle contention with her working class, royalty-loving parents. When Bea, director of a hospice charity, must spend six months working with Queen Georgina, her charity's new patron, sparks fly and passion blooms. But is love enough to bridge the gap between Bethnal Green and Buckingham Palace?

    "Awesome.... first half"

    This one has potential--huge potential--to be a classic in the genre. The premise is old, but wonderfully done. The characters are immediately lovable, even the minor ones (although the voice of Georgie is all wrong--the rest of the narration is brilliant). All are fleshed out superbly. The details of royal life are charming and enlightening. I was completely wrapped in this story--right up until THAT point. You will know it when you get there. It just seemed out of character and thrown in for no reason at a point in the story that called for a different tack. I plodded past that, disappointed, but invested enough to see how it would all turn out. I thoroughly enjoyed the overall book, despite some clunky bits here and there, and I would recommend.

    "Fairy tale romance"

    This is a decent little romance novel. I was a little disappointed with the use of a strap-on. Otherwise this was a typical romance novel and stands up well against others in the genre.

    "All the cards stacked in their favor"

    Jenny Frame spends a wonderful amount of time painting scenes with costume, history and character building. The characters (although at times too wonderful to be true) feel tangible and real and it is a joy to follow them on the journey.

    Lesley Parkin, the narrator, has equally done a great job at voicing so many different characters with unique accents and speech patterns that you could pick each out of a crowd without the textual context.

    "Lots of fun great fairytale"

    I first read the book and it was a fun fairytale. What makes the audio better is the audio narrator excellent job. I would love to read and listen to a sequel or a short series. You want to know what happens to Julius, Theodore, does Cammi get her girl and what adventures will the Queens take next? Will they have an heir to the throne?

    Story
    "Fairy tale dream lesbian romance!"
    If you could sum up A Royal Romance in three words, what would they be?

    Wonderful telling of two different cultural cash between Georgina and Bea. Almost like Haves and Haves Not comparison. Each believing they are in the rights way of thinking. Of course, a cash of ideas and views.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is hard to just pick one favorite character! I have to lean to George. I can really feel how much she wants her freedom. But her strong duty to her family and country, she is locked into a "gilded cage" (see cover of book).


    What does Lesley Parkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Leslay Parkin did bring out different characters to live! I never felt over exaggeration in accents. She does bring a great pace and live into storytelling.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could. But 13 hours long it's hard to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love great romance stories. Especially princess trying to win her princess!You won't be sorry to listening to A Royal Romance!!

    "Weird narrator"

    Not a terrible story but the narration ... Wow. Just wow. She made everyone sound like they were slightly autistic. Completely monotone throughout. No emotion displayed even when emotion was completely necessary. Very odd to listen to and I think if I was reading this book and could hear the voices in my head I would have actually enjoyed it far more. I definitely won't be getting any more books with this narrator.

    Used 2 x speed to listen. The narrator spoils the story. But persevere it's a gem of a story in the line of Mills and Boons romances

    "poor naration"

    I love this story I have it on kindle and paperback and I was really looking forward for the audio version.
    How disappointed.
    the only way I could listen to this was to speed up the narration to X1.20. The narrator seemed incapable of any form of emotion.

    "Loved the story and the narrator!"

    I read this book and fell in love with the characters. On a whim, I gave the Audiobook a try and discovered it was a gem thanks to the talented narrator.
