Olivia Shields is a new resident to Carlisle Bay, Connecticut, after having traveled the world as a professional ballet dancer. Dancing was her life. Chasing performance dreams is all she's ever known or planned for. Now, she is starting anew. She didn't expect to be a boutique manager at 31, but it's better than spinning out into the abyss of the unknown. Being in Carlisle has brought solace to her listless soul. Brady Carlisle has recently returned to Carlisle Bay, his hometown. He has spent the last decade in California, designing and patenting surfboards.

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux - an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy - is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

Royal Love goes beyond the fairy tale of power and privilege. Serruya highlights the dark side of the royal fantasy. Behind the glitz and glamour are the flaws and dangers we don't always see. Angus may be Prince Charming, but his world proves to be anything but. Siobhan is out of her element when it comes to the false smiles, the bitter stares and the hidden agendas that put her at risk. He's royalty, she's an orphan. When their worlds collide is when the real fireworks begin. With lively narration and heart-stopping danger.

I have a confession to make. I hate my math professor, Connor Daniels. From the moment he walked into class, he’s been a thorn in my side, nitpicking every little thing that I do. It burns me how he expects me to be just as perfect as he is. I get that professors are supposed to challenge their students, but he’s such a... He’s a dick. Cocky. Big-headed. Egotistical. So why can’t I stop fantasizing about him? Standing up there in his tight jeans, his bulge practically flaunted in my face. I picture the victorious way he’d smirk as he bent me over his desk.
