Reluctantly Royal by Gillian Archer

A bad-boy prince is tamed by a vivacious American beauty in this charming love story.

Officially, the world knows me as His Royal Highness Prince Lucien of Monaco, but you can call me Luc. A long time ago, I vowed never to let my heritage stand in the way of a good time. Now the party’s over.

With the death of my father and my twin brother, I’ve lost a part of my soul — and my freedom. My heartless older brother tells me that not only do I have to settle down, I need to marry a girl with the right bloodlines. AKA, a princess. Yeah, I’ll get right on that... after one last trip to Vegas.

That’s where I meet Hannah. Not only is she gorgeous and down-to-earth, she reminds me what it’s like to live completely in the moment. Plus she has no idea who I really am. Hanging out with the locals, I feel like I can just be myself again. Besides, our chemistry is undeniable — especially after we take things to the next level.

What happens in Vegas is special, and I don’t want it to stay there. But I’ve been keeping a secret that will tear us apart. The last thing I expect, though? Hannah’s been keeping a secret of her own... one that might just bring us together.

What happens when a reluctant royal meets a proud local girl from Vegas? You get Lucien and Hannah's story and you may or may not like it, but I did. I am a sucker for a Cinderella story and this one was really good. There were a few spots that dragged, but I pushed through them and it was worth it.

Lucien is a Prince from Monaco, and a year ago he was living his life as he wanted to. He was in the military and enjoying it. But when his father and twin brother died in a plane crash, Lucien's life as he knew it was over. He was called back home to take his place beside his brother, who would become the Crown Prince and Lucien would be the spare. So being sent to Las Vegas for a speech would be like a vacation, and Lucien planned to enjoy his time there. When he meets a woman at karaoke, he is drawn to her down-to-earth spirit, and she is beautiful to boot. After spending a little time with her, he feels as if she has brought him back to life and he wants to stay with her to keep that feeling alive.

Hannah Allen has lived in Vegas all her life. She has overprotective parents and a big brother who wants to keep her safe. She works as a cosmetologist, but she isn't happy with her job and hasn't been for a while. When she meets Luc at the bar, he is different, and she finds it easy to spend time with him. She wants to show him her sites of Vegas, not the touristy sites. So they set up adventurous dates and things get fun from there.

Lucien wants to tell her who he really is but will it scare her away? He wants her to go back to Monaco with him, but will his family drive her away? And what happens when she tells him her secret? Which, by the way, left me crying like a baby!

I really enjoyed this story and can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I loved Gillian Archer's MC stories and this being a Cinderella story I had to read it and was not disappointed. So if you like royal stories, give this one a try, you may or may not like it, but at least I hope you enjoy it a little.

Gillian Archer has a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering but prefers to spend her time on happily ever after. She writes the kind of stories she loves to read—the hotter the better! When she’s not pounding away on the keyboard, she can be found surfing the couch, indulging in her latest reality TV fixation, or baking something ridiculously tasty (and horrible for her waistline). Gillian Archer lives in the wilds of Nevada with her amazing husband, gorgeous new baby, and two goofy dogs.
