Lucy King - The Crown Affair (Yours, Hot and Royal)
This was such a fun and wonderful royal romance to read. It reminded me of what I've fantasized about the British royalty William and Kate. Throughout their wedding and the television specials, I was fascinated about how "normal" they appeared and how gracious.
So when I began the Crown Affair by author Lucy King and after reading her behind the book story at I(Heart)Presents, I was even more fascinated. Lucy didn't disappoint me with her characters Laura and Matt. It started out with Laura having her breath sucked right out from her when she watched this fabulous specimen of a man chopping wood. He was bare chested, bulging muscles, and working outside of a manor she had been dying to see the inside of the place. The manor was known for it's unique archecture. Matt was the man she mistook for being the grounds keeper. A man she had a one night stand with. The very same man that thought she was a reporter looking for a story.
Circumstances in the end, had her travelling to a foreign country, the island of Sassania where she was to restore some of the crumbling palace. Who should she run into but Matt, the actual King of Sassania. Let's just say I could immediately tell I was going to love their story and that their romance would be a hot one! Lucy King didn't disappoint. She put up road blocks for this lovely couple and in the end, giving Laura her charming prince (in this case, King). If you love royal romances, then you'll adore this one!

Close encounters of the royal kind
After being made redundant and finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman, Laura decides it's time to take charge of her life. However, the last thing she expects is for the new Laura to end up having wild, naked fun with the gorgeous guy next door…
She virtually runs away afterward in shame—but so what? She soon gets a new job, on the Mediterranean island of Sassania, no less! But the island has a new king—aka Laura's guy next door! Now they're both in trouble, for King Matt should be focusing on affairs of the state, not on reigniting a hot affair of his own…
