Book Review - Royal Heir by Ruth Cardello

ABOUT THE BOOK


Rachelle Westerly needs a break. After years of acting as the family peacekeeper, she’s finally ready to take a step back. Her movie-star brother has offered her the perfect escape. But on the very first day of her vacation, she steps onto a red carpet and straight into the arms of a real-life prince—and the promise of just the kind of flash and fortune that tore her own family apart.

As the soon-to-be leader of Vandorra, Prince Magnus de Bartelebon always gets what he wants—and the regal bad boy wants the sweet American schoolteacher. Although he should be announcing his engagement of convenience to a neighboring princess, Rachelle is the one he desires in his bed and by his side.

While the drop-dead gorgeous Magnus might be almost everything she craves, Rachelle can’t help but think that falling for him would be a royal mistake. He may be ruling a kingdom one day, but she’s in charge of her heart. And he’ll have to win it with more than a lap of luxury—as inviting as it is.

REVIEW

This is my favorite of the Westerly Billionaires books.  Often Billionaire stories can be so hard to relate to but Rachelle is one of the most relatable heroines I've read in a long time.  She has started living her life based on her role in her family and the expectations that have come from than thinking about what she really wants.  Magnus is the typical Billionaire/Prince type... except not quite.  Uncovering his layers along with Rachelle makes for a great story that moves quickly.  The character development for both of them is done extremely well.  I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good love story with characters with depth and dimension.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
