The Danovar Royal family can’t weather another scandal following Phillip’s notorious wedding. Now, Eric “the spare” is tasked with going full on proper royal to rectify his party boy image. He can start by curing cancer — or at least working on funding a new scientific breakthrough for breast cancer. But when he finds that the scientist behind the new treatment is sexier than all the sinning he’s done in recent years his ‘good boy’ image change hits a major roadblock.
Anna Fernstone has happily avoided one royal wedding only to end up engaged financially with the second in line. What are the odds? Surely it wasn’t normal for a single scientist to have to ward off everyone in line for the throne. But when Eric proves to know a thing or two about the female breast, Anna is too taken to stop him. With their livelihoods on the line, do they risk a once in a lifetime romance even if it has the potential to ruin the reputations they’ve worked so hard to build? In the end they’ll have to choose what means more: what the world thinks or what they think of each other.

I had fun stepping back into the world of the Royals of Danovar once again for Eric and Anna’s romance. Eric may be the “spare” for the kingdom, yet this man is quite at ease in his skin and his role in life. Friends with his brother, not wanting to step into his shoes at all, Eric has been easily living his own life until it’s time to step in and show his true character to those around him. He has a bit of work to do for that playboy, free spirit role has put him in a light to not be taken seriously… especially now that he really does have the people’s best interest at heart, particularly a specific group of people who could benefit greatly from a health care bill he needs to pass. Anna has the research, the knowing that a treatment could save lives if only she can get it into the right hands, and past some roadblocks. When a prince and a scientist combine to further not only the people’s health but their own hearts as well… well, things are going to get very interesting.
Royal Treatment is a fun, charming romance with some definitely sexy moments, a couple that works and an interesting plot. I enjoyed myself once again in this world – and I’m definitely looking forward to Royal Order up next. If you love a good royal romance, fun characters and a love to risk everything for then I’d recommend Royal Treatment and the entire Royals of Danovar series to any Contemporary Romance reader.
