Publisher's Summary

Princess Eleanor lives her life for everyone else. Her charities, her people, and her advisors watching her every move. One step out of line, and she’s splashed across every major news headline.

With a royal holiday in sight, she’s ready for a change of pace. But no one is quite prepared for how far she’ll go to step back from royal life.

Sean is trying to keep his head above water at his tattoo studio. After an investment gone bad, he wants to keep his head down and do the job he loves.

But when a mysterious woman stumbles in looking for a job, he can’t refuse her. He’s immediately drawn to her, with her infectious laugh and beautiful smile.

Eleanor never dreamed she would find the perfect man for her in a small tattoo studio. For the first time in her life, Eleanor is thinking beyond what should be and what she really wants out of life.

When the real world comes crashing back down on the princess, she’ll have to make the biggest choice of her life. Will she put her own wants and needs first? Or will she fall in line with the royal way?

Royal Reckoning is a happily ever after romance with no cliff-hanger and is the first in a new royal romance series, The Ainsworth Royals.

Loved it!

This was my first Emily Silver book, and it was adorable! An instalust royal romance with a fake identity was exactly what I needed to escape reality for a bit. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!

The narration was great. I loved their accents, and the whole book was a pleasant listen.

One of the best royal romances I've heard!

Who doesn't love a runaway royal story? I loved how Emily gave us a glimpse into royal life's not so fun side - it ain't all fancy clothes and jewels!

Ellie's live is already planned out for her. As second in line to the throne, she's been preparing for her duties since birth, but is this the life she really wants? She decides to use her upcoming "holiday" to find out by dying her hair pink and disappearing into the Shoreditch neighborhood of London and landing a receptionist position in a tattoo shop. It's not long before sparks start flying between her and the shop owner, Sean. Can a relationship between a princess and a tattoo artist survive under the royal spotlight?

Will Watt and Charlotte Cole perform these characters and all the emotions with such grace, humility, and heat - holy cow!

I can't wait to read the rest of Emily's royals!

Royal Reckoning

An entertaining and emotional journey about figuring out who you truly are.

"𝙄 𝙤𝙣𝙡𝙮 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙥 𝙛𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙛 𝙞𝙩'𝙨 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙮𝙤𝙪."
"𝙄'𝙢 𝙬𝙖𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜, 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚. 𝙄'𝙢 𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚, 𝙬𝙖𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝 𝙮𝙤𝙪."

Ellie has had enough of being a princess so she decides to take a vacation away from the palace. Sean is taken by this pink-haired mystery woman who has stumbled into his shop looking for a job. Sean and Ellie start to grow closer and closer but Ellie knows that time is running out before she will be summoned back to the palace. When the real world comes crashing down on them, Ellie is now faced with the toughest decision of her life.

I absolutely loved Sean and Ellie when I read their story and the audio made their story so much more. The pull they had to each other is so strong and the banter between them is classic. I fell in love with a lot of the side characters as well. This whole series is definitely worth checking out if you love royal romances.

Audio ... Will Watt and Charlotte Cole did a great job bringing both the characters and the story to life. This was my first time listening to both of these narrators and I really enjoyed them.

Royal Reckoning by Emily Silver (The Ainsworth Royals 1) is a forbidden, royal romance that is told from the dual first-person point of view of Sean and Ellie and I give the book 5 Maple Leafs.

An Absolute Must!

This is complete audio magic! Will Watt and Charlotte Cole absolutely bring life and heart to this story. It’s fun, flirty and oh so steamy!

“I only want to stop falling if it’s with you.”

Will Watt’s voice is a constant seduction as Sean while Charlotte Cole brings an authenticity to Eleanor that’s both heartfelt and sassy.

Seriously this audio is swoon-central and takes a fabulous book and brings it to the never level! Royals, accents and happily ever afters make Royal Reckoning an absolute must!

An absolute 5 star listen!!

This was an intoxicating story!! AMAZING. An absolute 5 star must read alert. I'm still trying to come down from the absolute high that these characters gave me. It was just the read I needed: a sweet, loveable escape that kept me completely enthralled. This story is fun, sexy, heartwarming, moving & romantic. Kat and Sean are amazing together. I love their personalities, strength, and especially their hearts. What an amazing start to a new series. Charlotte Cole and Will Watt are fabulous narrators and voice artists. They do an amazing job portraying the characters, bringing them to life and humanizing them with their emotions, attitude and personality. They do more than giving their characters their voices, they fall into the roles and become the character. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

Royal Romance Perfection!

Royal Reckoning by Emily Silver was a royally refreshing, intriguing, and steamy romance! This was my first book by Emily Silver, and it won't be my last. I read the ebook back when it was first released, and listening to the audio was such a delightful treat for my ears!

Charlotte Cole and Will Watt narrate this audio, and are absolute perfection as Ellie and Sean! Charlotte Cole truly shines bringing all of Ellie's passions, secret ambitions, and of course her love for Sean and her family to life in all the best ways! Charlotte captured Ellie's essence brilliantly. Will Watt's performance of Sean's determination, vulnerabilities, and charm is spot on as well! Will brought a certain tone to his voice that made Sean such a swoony and lovable guy!

Emily Silver has written quite a royal, radiant read! I loved it even more in audio! All of the characters in this book have such fun and lively personalities! If you love a royal romance with dedicated and loyal families, a hot tattooed hunk, a woman on a mission, a secret identity (pink hair!), delicious steamy time (hello hallway), and HEA perfection, then you will love this book!
