Royal Design by Sariah Wilson

Posted February 20, 2017 by Marsha in Contemporary Romance, Series / 0 Comments

Bellamy Sullivan’s life is hardly regal. She’s a waitress from Ohio who’s been on her own since she was sixteen, working several jobs while her dreams of being a fashion designer stay just that. But everything changes when PR maven and soon-to-be-royal Lemon Beauchamp drops in to announce that Bellamy is a princess. Unfortunately, Bellamy’s newly assigned bodyguard is the last man she wants to see.

A year ago, the royal family of Monterra tasked Enzo Rannalli with confirming Bellamy’s heritage, which meant he had to get very close to her. Enzo got the confirmation he needed, but he didn’t expect their connection to be so meaningful. And he didn’t expect his sudden departure to break the young princess’s heart.

In exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to kick-start her fashion career, Bellamy agrees to star on a royal reality show that will match her with the world’s most eligible bachelors. But after a series of disastrous dates make her even more grateful for Enzo’s company, she wonders if her fairy-tale ending is waiting to happen off camera.

Titles in The Royals of Monterra include:  Royal Date – Royal Chase – Royal Games – Royal Design (plus some Kindle World titles as well)

Title:  Royal Design
Series:  The Royals of Monterra
Author:  Sarah Wilson
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Published:  February 14, 2017
Publisher:  Montlake Romance
My Rating:  4 stars

Take your average American young woman with dreams and plans… and far too little money to make them a reality.  Add a little family history, unknown, into the mix.  Sneak in a man who broke her heart once upon a time.  And stir in a modern day fairy godmother with an astounding announcement.  Mix well with humor, romance and a reality show… and the result is a fun, charming, modern day fairy tale complete with princess.

I had fun with Royal Design.  Bellamy is a sweet, funny young lady who has had her world turned upside down.  Enzo is sexy, and compelling.  A man who has his own reasons for the way things happen in life.  Watching their romance unfold was such an enjoyable experience.

Royal Design falls into The Royals of Monterra series quite well.  While you don’t have to have read the earlier stories to enjoy this one, I’d suggest going back and discovering this enchanting series from the start if you’re picking it up here.

If you’re looking for a fun, light-hearted romance, then this one fits that bill perfectly.

*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
