Publisher Description

Romance, glamour, ambition and power . . . meet the Washingtons - the most scandalous royal family ever!

HRH Princess Samantha has always been a royal rebel. She's the spare not the heir, so no one minds too much who she dates or how hard she parties. It helps that her sister, Princess Beatrice, is literally perfect. She's demure, sweet and beautiful, and she knows that the crown always comes first - no matter what her heart might really want.

But they're not the only ones with their eye on the throne. Daphne Deighton might be 'newly noble' but she won Prince Jefferson's heart once, and she'll do anything to get back into the court's favour - and his bed. If only she knew that her competition was a common nobody - plain little Nina Gonzalez, the daughter of the king's secretary.

Together these four young women must navigate the drama, gossip, scheming and sizzling romance of the most glorious court in the world. They'll either be crowned in glory - or end up as shockingly royal disasters.

Review

Inventive, fresh, and deliciously romantic - an absolute delight! Sarah J. Maas, author of Throne of Glass Relatable, believable, fantastical, aspirational, and completely addictive . . . I loved, loved, loved this book Sara Shepard, author of Pretty Little Liars I really enjoyed this book. For me it was The Crown meets Gossip Girl which was always going to be a fun combination. The structure, pace and characterisation made this an easy and very enjoyable read. BookBag A fun twist on history as we know it, and the ending will have readers hoping for a sequel School Library Journal For readers looking for intrigue-and for those who like their royal fever with a twist-this is a quick and delicious read Booklist McGee crafts a deliciously soapy American royal family . . . McGee's characters are well-crafted and flawed, giving the narrative emotional texture that elevates it above the dramatic formula Publishers Weekly There's enough palace intrigue, royal shenanigans, and even a smidgen of sex to satisfy anyone who loves a bit of gossip . . . An entertaining royal family modeled after the residents of Buckingham Palace. Kirkus Reviews With the seemingly endless influx of new novels hitting the real and virtual bookshelves every day, the choice can seem overwhelming. But, occasionally a novel comes along with the promise of delivering escapism by way of a subject matter - royals, romance and a Gossip Girl-esque scandal - that is a no-brainer must-read . . . American Royals [is] just such a novel set to ignite and delight book clubs and literary-loving fans of The Princess Diaries, Gossip Girl, The Crown or even just the real-life British royals. Vogue Australia A fun, fast-paced read packed with drama, scandal and romance The Sun An addictive Jilly Cooperesque saga Guardian Scandals, romance and betrayal abound [...] pure escapism Mail on Sunday - 'Must-Read Books of the Year'
