Publisher's Summary

When her family's cider business is ruined and other local businesses are vandalized, Anika Penning wonders if the recent bout of unrest is merely a result of rivalry between local merchants and noblemen, or if something more sinister is at the root of the recent crimes. Along her journey Anika befriends Prince Valdemar, future king of Brevalia, but their relationship hits many twists and turns along the way. Lady Winifred Paxel Flemming pursues the prince relentlessly. His grandmother, Queen Marguerite, expects him to wed whoever she thinks is suitable, even if it means marrying a foreign princess he's never met. Anika's mother, Lady Sarah, wants Anika to help ease the family's financial burdens by marrying Erland Riccats, National Chairman of the Merchants' Guild. Lady Sarah also harbors secrets regarding Prince Valdemar's mother, Princess Karin, who met an untimely death years before. In the end, will both Anika and Prince Valdemar be forced into loveless marriages, or will they be able to outwit their enemies?

Royal Delight

This book is a true fairy tale delight. It has great narration and a good story with, mystery, and romance. It grabbed my attention from the start and couldn't wait to find out how it ends. So glad there are more books in this series. It is a clean read so it is suitable for all ages, especially the young at heart

Clean YA/Teen Medieval Mystery & Romance

I really enjoyed this young adult mystery romance! The story sucked me in and I had a hard time putting it down. The characters are well developed and the tale moves along at a great pace with quite a few unexpected twists and turns.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The characters are captivating and I felt immersed in the story. There is some faith aspects woven into the story, and this book also talks about the power of prayer giving the characters strength to overcome the many obstacles in their way.

The story wraps up nicely with no major cliffhangers! All the mysterious incidents are well sorted out and the guilty parties dealt with. There is also a HEA conclusion for the main characters.

I’m really looking forward to the next book in this well written tale! It is a great listen for any age group!

Fantastic!

Loved listening to this! Anika and Val are great characters and I enjoyed listening to their story. There’s mystery, intrigue,and romance (more sweet than steam). The narrator was excellent as well.

What a delightful book!

In this fairy tale, Anika has two problems fighting for her family's very existence and falling in love with the kingdom's Prince Valdemar. She faces an unknown enemy who is trying to destroy her family on top of her mother who wants nothing more than to marry Anika off to the first man who can help save their cider farm and that man is not the prince.

Prince Valdemar is the handsome, entitled, future heir of Brevalia, but someone does not want him to take the throne. The only way he sees to thwart the unrest in the kingdom is not by fighting for Brevalia but instead, by getting married and it is not the woman who he has fallen in love with.

Join Anika and Valemar on their journey of self-discovery, fighting for love and how to overcome unknown enemies to not only to their love but to the kingdom. Is it really true that love can overcome all?

This is NOT my normal genre but I was asked to listen to it. Wow! I LOVED this book! The story was fun and strong, and Cecily White did a wonderful job telling Melody's story! I cannot wait for book two to come out!!!

Clean Teen Mystery/Romance

I really enjoyed this clean teen mystery/romance and believe that listeners of all ages will also. Anika and Prince Valdemar were very likeable characters and the story had enough plot twists to keep me guessing. A fun story, mystery and romance all came together nicely, with everything resolved at the end. Cecily White as narrator was excellent and added to my enjoyment. I would recommend Royally Entitled: Brides of Brevalia, Book 1.

This book was a really great clean read!

i loved this book. The plot was complex and different from anything i had read in the past and i read a lot of books a year!! There were lots of plot twists, the story kept me guessing until the very end when the twist came out, and even then there was more!!

i really can't say enough good things. the story takes place in a fictional location in a fictional time frame and was very creative. i loved all the characters, even the villains were likable- or easy to hate.

There are undertones of Church/God/Christianity which, as a priest's wife and Christian, i LOVED. I loved that it was a clean romance as well.

The narration is exceptional, just as good as any of the "famous" authors i have listened to. the voices were pretty good and made listening enjoyable.

i am eagerly awaiting the next installment.

I love it!!!

The cover was the first thing that attracted me to the book. I then read the description, which I thought was interesting. Once I started listening to the audio book I was so glad that I did. I have to say that I love it!!
I thought I knew what to expect but the author surprised me. I was not expecting the mystery which took me a while to fugure out who did it. There was suspense, romance and mystery.
My only negative is the love interest Prince Valdemar who really frustrated me at times. I wanted him to have more of a backbone. Unlike Anika who tried, really hard to help her family and friend and she tried to solve who was behind the problems. I actually really liked her.
Religion is part of the story but it doesn't take over the book, it suited the time period and it gave the characters, in my opinion, some realism. They struggled with what is happening and this in turn made them struggle with there belief. It was an interesting read on the human side of things, which I think the author did really well.

I liked the narrator, I thought she gave the characters there own voice. I could distingush between them without being told who they were. I would be more then happy to listen to her other narration.

A Unique Historical Christian Suspense Romance

This story is quite unlike most of the books in this genre. Anika's family exists on the fringes of high society because of her father's successful cider business and her mother's high-society background. But Anika would never be considered princess material. It isn't just because of her station but because of her decidedly unladylike pursuits and her unfashionable endeavours. She can shoot a crossbow, strategise with the best of them and straddle the line between merchant class and high society.

A string of crimes threatens the livelihoods of Anika's family and those of her friends. Coupled with political unrest, modernisation, and an unlikely friendship with and an attraction to Crown Prince Valdemar, Anika suddenly finds herself the centre of attention while in the midst of solving a mystery. But Anika is no fading wallflower. She unapologetically brings her strong feminist attributes and her equally strong Christian faith to the table to help her friends, the queen and her country find their way through the mystery.

Melody Delgado has drawn on interesting and sometimes contradictory elements to piece together this story. The result is quite unique, definitely interesting and overall enjoyable.
