Publisher's Summary

What if America had a royal family? If you can't get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha. Perfect for fans of Red, White, and Royal Blue!

Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown.
Two girls vying for the prince's heart.
This is the story of the American royals.

When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren't just any royals. They're American. 

As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America's first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she's breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn't care much about anything, either...except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there's Samantha's twin, Prince Jefferson. If he'd been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince...but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.

The duty. The intrigue. The Crown. New York Times best-selling author Katharine McGee imagines an alternate version of the modern world, one where the glittering age of monarchies has not yet faded - and where love is still powerful enough to change the course of history. 

"The lives of the American royal family will hook you in the very first pages and never let go. Relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive." (Sara Shepard, number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Pretty Little Liars and Perfectionists series)

Critic Reviews

“Readers will be hooked.... A fun twist on history as we know it, and the ending will have readers hoping for a sequel.” (School Library Journal)

"Critical questions tantalize readers through the foibles and flaws of characters who are frustratingly human…readers will eagerly await the next installment to find out whether true love will win or stodgy tradition will triumph.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A deliciously soapy American royal family...McGee’s characters are well-crafted and flawed, giving the narrative emotional texture that elevates it above the dramatic formula.” (Publishers Weekly)

This book was so fun, but I'm so sad it's over. Ready for the next book to be out to continue on the story.

So much fun!

♥️ What if America was a monarchy, and what would that family be like? Without parsing words, I LOVED this book. I loved the nods to the British Royal Family and I adore the perspectives of the women telling the story. I flew through it, and can’t wait for the next one to come out. ❤️ 👑 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 💫
