“Because I would give up a crown for her.”
Christ my stomach rolls every time I think the word. When someone says it aloud I gag. If’ I’m supposed to be the Great Royal Hope for my country, we’re all well and truly fucked.”
When Nicholas chose Olivia over the throne, all the responsibility that comes with being the heir falls on Henry’s lap. He was never good at following rules and was always the wild and reckless boy, looking to have fun. Having no other option now, he must clean up his act and learn how to rule a country. When the Queen sends him off to a remote castle to give him the space that he needs, Henry sees this as the perfect opportunity to make one more reckless decision to make things interesting.
“Where are we going, love?”
“We?” Her eyes are darker – dilated, and her chest rises and falls in quick, excited pants. I wonder if she even realizes it. “I have a meeting. Mother’s sent her car to take me. You can’t come, Henry.”
“I can come lots of times. My stamina is legendary. Do you want me to show you?”
Her voice comes out soft, husky. “You can’t come with me”
“That sounds like a challenge.” I smirk slowly. “I bet I could time it just right.”
“Who said anything about sleeping? I’m talking about sex. Good sex. Lots of it.”
That puts a flush on her pretty cheeks and she laughs. “I don’t want to have sex with you.”
I pat her hand. “Now you’re just being silly. The cat-and-mouse game can be tantalizing, but it’s not necessary.”
My voice drops to a whisper. “I’m a sure thing.”
“I want to change the world with you at my side, holding your hand. I love you, Sarah, and whatever happens, I promise there won’t be a day that I don’t love you with all that I am.”
Sarah is one of us! A bookworm through and through, she would love nothing but to curl up in a corner with her favorite Jane Austen book. As the book progresses, and they get closer, we start seeing a more fun and playful side of her who loves adventure.
I enjoyed this book and devoured it from cover to cover. Their effortless banter and beautiful friendship just make their heartwarming romance that much better.
I love this book a lot and I hope you like them just as much! If you have not yet, give this a read and let me know in the comments down below your thoughts!
