Review: The Royals Series by Nichole Chase

I read the entire series in the space of about two days, so I thought I’d just make a single post on my thoughts for all three books.

The series is a romance story featuring royalty of a fictional country, Lilaria. Each book revolves around two people, one who is from the royal family and one who is not.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this series. While it’s not the best written literature out there, there were many aspects I enjoyed, the main one being how easy they were to read and get through within a short amount of time.

Warning: There are minor spoilers for each review, so I suggest you go and read the books first, and come back if you don’t like spoilers.

Samantha Rousseau is a master’s student studying wildlife biology. When she receives an invitation for a meeting with a duchess of Lilaria, she finds who she is and her world turned upside down. Alex D’Lynsal on the other hand, is the crown prince of Lilaria and is trying to keep his name clean when he visits American, but quickly finds himself hopelessly falling in love with Samantha.

Out of all the books, this one is my favourite. Although I don’t think the plot lives up to the expectations set by the official blurb, it was enjoyable nonetheless.

I found that there were aspects of the plot that were highlighted by the summary did not have as great significance as the summary made out it to be. Alex’s “playboy” status for one – there was literally nothing about him mentioning he was trying to keep a clean image, and it was probably only mentioned twice or three times by Samantha¬†at most in the entire book.
