Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her to join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.
While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.
I can not recommend Royals enough! The first chapter or so are a little light, but after that, the book turns into a whirlwind of action. The Scottish royal family will never be the same again.
Things being with Daisy’s sister Ellie getting engaged to the Scottish Prince Alexander. But this sort of thing does not affect just Alexander’s family, but Ellie’s too. But most importantly, Daisy who is Ellie’s sister.
Daisy is completely different from Ellie is so many different ways. She speaks her mind and anything that comes to it. The Royals of Scotland are not particularly happy about that and so Daisy is summoned to Scotland to fix things up.
From the beginning of the book, Ellie, Daisy’s sister, comes off very prudish now that she is engaged to a prince. So when Daisy makes a few international headlines, she agrees with the Queen and has Daisy start a fake relationship with Miles. All so that the press would stop thinking he had a fling with Sebastian the other prince.
But through their time together something grows, emotions. Miles at first does not seem to be happy about the arrangement but he understands he has to do it. Daisy is well, Daisy. But when everything is finished in Scotland, Miles says he developed feelings for Daisy says it was all pretending. Then she leaves to go back to Scotland.
But that’s not the end of Royals, you’ll have to read it yourself I find out about what happens in the end. But I can it was really good!
I really enjoyed this writing style and the fast pace of Royals. Being from Florida myself, I can say everything the author has said about Florida. I highly recommend you pick up a copy for yourself to read! I am really looking forward to reading the second book in this series.
