What if America had a royal family? Yeah, I know. It’s a little hard to wrap our minds around. But what if George Washington had said yes when he was asked to become king? What would things be like today?
That’s the premise behind Katherine McGee’s new novel in a new series. American Royals poses the question: what would it be like to have an American royal dynasty?
This was a fun, romantic read that really makes you think about life as a princess. Told from the perspectives of four girls–two princesses, one wannabe, and one “normal” girl–this novel weaves the ins and outs of monarchy with matters of the heart, and for those who still imagine what it might be like to be royalty, it will be a page turner for sure.
Here’s the publisher description:
What if America had a royal family? If you can’t get enough of Harry and Meghan or Kate and William, meet American princesses Beatrice and Samantha.
Crazy Rich Asians meets The Crown! Perfect for fans of Red, White, and Royal Blue and The Royal We!
Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown.
Two girls vying for the prince’s heart.
This is the story of the American royals.
When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne.
As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. If he’d been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.
“Inventive, fresh, and deliciously romantic—American Royals is an absolute delight!” —Sarah J. Maas, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series and Court of Thorns and Roses series.
