Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant - hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark-haired beauty who doesn't bow down. Instead she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn't what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.
There's a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they've traded in horse-drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven't chopped anyone's head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a king or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!
Royally Screwed is perfect for the "romantic at heart" who loves a beautifully well written heart-warming story that will captivate, mesmerize and make you swoon. It's a similar to fairy tale plot about handsome prince who goes after the love of his life, and well on it's way to being a classic for future generations.
I remember reading fairytales like Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel and many more when I was a little girl. These stories fascinated me and I could easily read them over and over. I still have a piece of that little girl's heart who believes in fairy tales and HEA's and Emma Chase has delivered a beautiful, enchanting, steamy fairytale that not only delivered the HEA that made my heart swoon, but also satisfied the women in me who craves a seductively steamy story that got my heart racing, and made me blush. This was fantastic story, I could easily listen to again and again.
I loved the narrators! Andi Arndt was a great choice for the female POV and Shane East was perfect for the male POV. They both delivered an outstanding performance.
Well worth the time, credit and sale!
So much fun. This is why I love romance novels. Lotsa banter and humor. Sweet characters. Looking forward to Henry's story.
I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that a fiction book was not realistic...come on now 'really'
The Publisher's Summary is spot on but I'll give a little more detail without spoilers.
Wessco's economy isn't doing well so the Queen tells Nicholas that he's to marry. They agree he has until the end of summer to make the announcement. Then the Queen tells Nicholas he needs to go to Manhattan to attend some functions for her and bring Henry home. Henry, the Spare Heir, has finished serving the required two years in the queens military and is in the U.S. partying way too much.
Nicholas has his best friend Simon go to Manhattan with him along with his security team. He's upset about the marriage arrangement and is out late drunk walking. He goes into the coffee house that Olivia runs and her family owns. Nicholas is smitten with Olivia. The more she banters with him the more smitten he is so he offers her ten thousand dollars to go to bed with him. This is their story......
I adore Emma Chase. I have her Legal Briefs Series and her Tangled Series. I listen to these when I want fun and sexy. This story starts out with the Monarch history and I wasn't sure about it, but Emma Chase has never let me down so I kept listening and the story turned into fun, sexy, drama, suspense and twists. There's hot sex too.
Andi Arndt, one of my favorite female performers and Shane East gave a great performance.
Is it worth the Credit/$$ Absolutely. I enjoyed it so much I listened to it twice in a row.
I'm a big Emma Chase fan. I've loved everything she's written and this did not disappoint! This book is everything, the perfect fairytale romance! I literally sighed out loud at the end. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I laughed, teared up and felt all the feels.
I also loved the few minutes with Brent and Kennedy :)
This audiobook made my tummy flutter so many times!!! Emma Chase did such a fantastic job with this one. Of course, one can never go wrong with Andi Arndt; nevertheless, Shane East was outstanding!!! I am looking forward to the next installment in this series!
I'm a romance -a-holic, but was growing tired of the same story content, so I left the genre for a while. My favorite writer, Jill Barnett, hasn't written a book that I either hadn't read or listened to, and no other romance writer lived up to her standards. I've never read anything by Emma Chase, but while this is the first, it certainly won't be the last. Funny, sweet heartbreaking and victorious-everything a romantic story should have. Bravo!
It's certainly not the most amazing book I've ever come across but it was exactly what I wanted to listen to. I was in the mood for a book about royalty and lives they struggle with. I would certainly reccomend it if you are looking for something with a healthy amount of steamy scenes but manages to keep the story rolling.
I loved Nick, or more so I loved the voice of Nick. Shane East has an excellent voice and I loved listening to his parts.
I would have to say the most moving scene of the book would be near the end where Nick has a few things tot say to the world on TV. I think it was an excellent way to bring everything together. However I did feel quite sorry for his brother and what was forced upon him.
A modern version of Cinderella with plenty of sexy romance. Face-paced with likable characters, I recommend it for anyone looking for a HEA story with just enough twists and turns to keep it lively and fun.
The narrators did a terrific job -- Andi Arndt was perfect as Olivia and Shane East's voice is as smooth and delicious as liquid chocolate.
You're the wonderful writer who captured my heart, crushed it and with all your might put it all back to one piece. I love the story. I would read it all over again.
