Publisher's Summary

Regal romance abounds in this flirty, laugh-out-loud companion novel to Prince Charming, by New York Times best-selling author Rachel Hawkins.

Millie Quint is devastated when she discovers that her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend has been kissing someone else. Heartbroken and ready for a change of pace, Millie decides to apply for scholarships to boarding schools...the farther from Houston the better.

Soon, Millie is accepted into one of the world's most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. Here, the country is dreamy and green; the school is covered in ivy, and the students think her American-ness is adorable.

The only problem: Mille's roommate Flora is a total princess.

She's also an actual princess. Of Scotland.

At first, the girls can't stand each other, but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, but Millie knows the chances of happily ever afters are slim...after all, real life isn't a fairy tale...or is it?

New York Times best-selling author Rachel Hawkins brings the feels and the laughs to her latest romance.

LOVE IT!!!!

Absolutely loved this book! Could not put it down. I wanted to keep listening to it but I either had to work or sleep. The characters had depth, the story was raw, and the performance was impeccable. Great story and great job all around!!! Would highly recommend this book if you’re looking for a beautiful lgbtq+ romance and feel-good book. It has all the emotions in it. Give it a listen or a read. You won’t regret it. If you love love, you’ll love this.

Quick listen

It felt like a lot happened in a short period of time.
It is pretty unusual for a book with many characters to stand out and be recognized as individuals to me but this did that spectacularly.
All the characters besides Jude felt like good genuine people, and that level of realism was greatly appreciated.
The story didn't feel rushed.
The characters weren't inconsistent and the pacing was quite fast.
I was shocked in a good way at the intermediate level vocabulary / mature dialog.
My Only real problem was the lack of build up or background on sacks and Perry's relationship.

Sweet princess romance

I found it to be a bit repetitive at times but that was a minor issue. Overall, it’s a fun romance! I love that it takes place in Scotland!

LOVE IT!!

This book is extremely cliche, but cute none the less. I really like that each of the characters had layers to them and weren’t just “the blonde one” or something as simplistic as that. I just wish it were longer, because my heart is melting.

Really good book

This is really good book highly suggest I read this on the bus and before I go to sleep although it did go a little to fast for my liking but if you want a book that doesn’t take away long to read this is the book because I was able to read within 2 days

Great Story but Insulting Accents from Narrator

I recommend you buy this book in paper or ebook format. The narrator's ham-fisted attempt at multiple Scottish Accents (weirdly the posh English accents were closer to Scottish) is so far off that all the Scottish characters sound like they look like Shrek and Fiona. She paints 'ugly' with her voice quite effectively but totally ruins the characters as a result as they're supposed to be beautiful young royals. Respect all Rachel Hawkins' hard work and put some effort in yourself and actually read the story. It's a great story beyond Karissa Vacker's insulting and wholly distracting attempt at Scottish accents.

A very cute romance!

Her Royal Highness was a very cute book. I love romances and I love Scotland, so put the two together and that's an amazing book for me. I loved the sapphic romance too: it was hate to love, which is one of my favourite tropes. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for a sweet sapphic YA romance!
